Exercise Gives Quick Results

pressups-w200-h200I can now do eight [tag-tec]pressups[/tag-tec]. That’s fantastic – two weeks ago I could only do 3! Very encouraging.  And two sets of eight at that.

Yesterday I did the 6 minutes abs workout on the couch for the third time. I am doing it on alternate days. For my alternate day, today, I needed to rest my abs, so I did push ups for my arms, and standing on a chair and getting down again for the legs. I used the interval training method of ‘whack it hard, then rest’.

Anyway, pleased with the results on the press ups. I hurt my rotator cuffs (a shoulder muscle group) at the gym last November and it’s taken ages to heal. I thought that might stop me doing press ups at all. But gentle persistence has paid off quickly, it seems.

    It’s all a case of starting slow and building it up. I couldn’t run 100 yards two years ago. Now I run 8 miles every other day. Run for 5 minutes for a week then make it 7 for the next week, then 9, etc etc and in no time you are running miles.
