    Today: Hero's Journey, Day 40: Done!

    Points earned today: +150
    Points total: 7350

    Woke up before my alarm, but slept badly (had lots of trouble getting to sleep). So I'm a bit tired today...
    But fortunately, today's workout has been abs - a nice challenge towards the end of each set, but not too troublesome. And the balancing with closed eyes has been fun! It's fascinating to feel all those small muscles especially in the foot work hard to keep the body stable.
    Still feeling yesterday's workout in my shoulders though...

    And: Two thirds of the journey are done!!

        Sorry, BuurmanSven.

        Today: Hero's Journey, Day 41: Done on Level 1 + weapon's practice

        Push-ups to failure... *sigh* But hey, I'm getting better. I still don't like them and the numbers are still weak, but I'm getting better!
        My poor shoulders... Tuesday was the last day with arm raises and today the next time. I'm already struggling once again with putting on my coat.
        Weapon's training, hammer as usual, has been good. Increased numbers, but was still able to do them. Btw, I also got better and stronger there - I started the first days with 4 kg, but I am now using the 6 kg dumbbells.
        Topped all that off with the DD, but without EC today. I'm now at 32 DDs done, 21 with EC. So sometime latest in February, I should be able to claim the badge for 50 DDs!
        (And topped all that off with "shoveling" my car out of the snow...)

          I looooove public holidays! One day of weekend in addition, sleeping in and the doing a workout without any time constraints. Has been a lot of fun, and closer to the end, I even got the balance for the climber taps right. Positive karma for me!

          Today: Hero's Journey, Day 43: Done... and survived(?)

          Wow... this has been quite a workout! Not taking a lot of time, but energy and stamina! But it has been fun somehow! Well, after everything had stopped hurting and I was back to breathing normally...

            Yay for positive karma! It seems like you're really enjoying Hero's Journey

              Yes, you're right, I skipped Day 44... Well, actually, I didn't, I just mixed things up a little bit. As today is a Sunday and I have lots of time, I decided to do Day 45 today, to have more time for all those push-ups and the weapon's practice without having to hurry anything! So, Day 44 will be on the plan for tomorrow morning, 5:30 am...

              twinkletoes Yes, as a matter of fact, I am! It has been tough around Day 30, but now it's fun! Especially, as I realized that I am getting better and stronger! My push-ups are still quite pathetical, but the numbers are getting bigger!

                It has been a good choice to do Day 44 today. Short workout, it left me with lots of time to get my car out of the snow and drive to work, where I still arrived early. Not the best night's sleep, so I'm feeling tired.... But only four workdays this week for me!
                And only 15 days left in Hero's Journey! I can already see that badge shimmering in the distance!

                  Today: Hero's Journey, Day 46: Done on Level 1 + Bonus quest

                  Wohaa... doesn't look as hard as it feels! ;-) But, I managed to do the bonus quest of at least 120 high knees in 60 seconds. I first thought about doing a higher level, but on the last set of Level 1, my quads started tightening up and my lungs hated me and started wheezing... hmpf.
                  The day shows a Karma symbol despite that there's no special Karma for the day...

                    Maybe you should report this in a feedback thread? (I haven't done hero's journey, but the way you describe it sounds like a typo).

                    And when you have to stop at at Level 1, you know the particular exercise(s) involved are really good for you at the moment! (even with fewer reps, you're already getting a lot of benefit from them)

                      First three exercises for the legs, last three killing the shoulders... nice combination! Loved the sumo squats although my knees made strange sounds...

                      Danak You're probably right, I'll try to do it today.

                        Another night with not so good sleep. Winter on the streets makes driving to and from work quite a journey, too... Day 48 is done and dusted. Probably won't get a workout in over the next three days as I'm on the road travelling... But who knows, I'll take my gear with me and hope for the best. But even if I fnd the time, it won't be Hero's Journey, as another day of weapon's practice is coming up.

                          That was a fun weekend (well' except for all that driving...)!
                          Today, it's monday again, I'm tired and not motivated at all... But I did all the push-ups! ;-) And got an additional arm-workout afterwards - had to clean my car from 15 cm freshly fallen snow... *sigh* I've really had enough of all that snow...

                              Nice balance practice! Otherwise, I'm feeling tired, my lungs started wheezing after the first set and my right knee didn't like the jumping lunges... *sigh* And even more snow...

                              BuurmanSven You're right! Now there are 10 workouts left to complete the journey!
