      Thank you, Colin, sleep_twitch and Mamatigerj! The wrist feels a lot better again, but I managed to "kill" my arm while sleeping - all dead weight followed by pins and needles when I woke up. So yes, Colin, unfortunately I know exactly what you mean...

      Tuesday, 5th November:
      Touch Your Toes, Day 22
      Back & Core, Day 29 (Core Control)
      Knee Push-Up Challenge, Day 20 (40 s hold)
      DD (40 Pulse Ups)

      And as my wrist felt better, I forced myself to do Day 29 of Back & Core... I swapped out the straight arm planks for ellbow planks and everything worked out fine. Well, except for my hate for planks... But it's done and there's only one day left until I hopefully can celebrate another badge.

      9 DD done, 8 with EC

        Ugh, I hate when that happens!

        Here, have a song to go with it:

          sleep_twitch Thanks for the song, it's perfect. :-D

          Wednesday, 6th November:
          Touch Your Toes Challenge, Day 23
          Back & Core, Day 30 (Balance) - BADGE DAY!
          Knee Push-Up Challenge, Day 21 (3x 10)

          After two months, I've finally finished Back & Core! Well, better finishing it late than never like last time I started doing it, right?
          The knee push-up challenge gets really challenging in the last third, again... Yes, I can do one set of 10 knee push-ups. Yes, I can more or less get through the second set, although it's a struggle. But the third set? Oh well... it was a real struggle from the fifth push-up onwards.

          Now I "only" need to decide on which program comes next...
          After a first look, the choice needs to be made between Cardio Go!, Totals and 30 Days of Cardio Blast... I don't like cardio, but on the other hand, I definitely should do more of it... So one of the cardio programs? Hmmm....

              BADGES!

              Combat programmes have a load of cardio, Knirin, from what I can remember.

                    Thank you, sleep_twitch, Colin, Mamatigerj and HellYeah!

                    I'm already nearly decided on the next program... Probably 30 Days of Cardio Blast.
                    But today, I decided to go for something different:

                    Thursday, 7th November:
                    Touch Your Toes Challenge, Day 24
                    Darebee Fitness Test: 9 Push-ups, 14 Sit-ups, 18 basic burpees - Level 1
                    Knee Push-Up Challenge, Day 22 (45 s hold)
                    DD w/ EC (2 min Arm Extensions)

                    Decided to do a little benchmark for myself. We'll see if I can improve my fitness during the next program! I have to admit, I'm quite proud of those 9 regular(!) push-ups in a minute. Especially as at least the first 5 were "flowing" and with good form. So, at least a little bit of progress!?

                    10 DD done, 9 with EC

                            Thank you, Mamatigerj!
                            I had a good weekend, quite productive - researching for my master's thesis. I start to warm up to my given topic...
                            Other than that, not a lot did happen. My left wrist still isn't totally happy and this night, I slept bad, woke up often, always with my arms asleep and with a really stiff neck this morning. That's so annoying! Oh well...

                            Saturday, 9th November:
                            Touch Your Toes Challenge, Day 26
                            Knee Push-Up Challenge, Day 24 (45 s)

                            Sunday, 10th November:
                            Touch Your Toes Challenge, Day 27

                            Monday, 11th November:

                              I hate cardio.... and I hate those push-ups... everything#s so hard... But it's fine, I still did everything and it wasn't totally horrible.

                                People who hate push-ups are people who are right!
