    That sounds like a smart plan!
    And thank you too, hopefully we can both have healthy feet that propel us to great things

      Consequtive Days of Exercising: 34/60

      ---

      I started at maybe 22.30 with a random run. I thought that just running would be a good idea, with as fast as I comfortably could. Now, the problem is that it was cold and I hadn't run in a while (not properly at least) and I didn't eat well today. And the result is that I have cold shivers, weakness and a light head ache. I don't know what it is with running that causes me feel like this. This wouldn't be the first, or second or even third time. Anyway, I'm not gonna push myself much today. I feel bad for not doing at least what I'm supposed to (Foundation and 90 Days of Action) but I think that if I do this, I might not be fit to do more important stuff tomorrow (pull ups and push ups mostly). Yoga is fun because if you can think of yoga for something, then there probably is yoga for that. I really liked that sequence. Nothing demanding and made me feel better. Still have shivers and feel cold and a bit weak, but it's much more subtle. And yes, I took on Iron Glutes again (4th time? I've lost count).
      Now. I have a goal to achieve. Which is 5 Minutes Elbow Plank in a row. I hate elbow plank. Have hated it from the beginning we met. But you can't learn to swim well if you don't swim. So I decided to do 10 minutes plank every day. Not in a row, but spreaded throughout the day. Eventually, plank will come more naturally and I'll be able to hold it.
      Anyway. I can't even open Facebook without seeing ads for McGregor vs Mayweather. I think I might even watch the match since I want to get into some kind of fighting stuff. I think I'll start out with boxing and if I feel like it, then I'll move on to MMA.

      See ya! Sleep well!

        I hope you feel better tomorrow! Make sure you actually eat enough before working out, unless you're purposefully exercising on a fast (some people do this very succesfully!)
        And maybe think about your salt intake, as I have been given to understand both too much and too little salt can give these symptoms. You might not have any issues with it, but it is definitely one of my possible causes for these symptoms =)

        I am glad you found a nice calm yoga. It's good to relax the mind as well as the body, especially when your day did not go entirely as you would have like it to.

        Good idea on the planks!
        I will do something similar at some point when I am not doing tons of other stuff as well

          Maegaranthelas Thanks I feel better, I'm not exercising on fast, because I start to feel weak when I exercise and I don't want this. I'll try to eat better in the future Thanks for the salt tip!
          Yes, that yoga really helped
          Good luck with what you take on (planks and other stuff)

            27.08.2017 - SUNDAY

            The Long Run Day 24
            Warm Up
            50 Pull Ups Program - 9-11 pull ups plan - Day 4 (5+8+5+5+7; 2 minutes rest between sets) FAILED. The last set should've been 8 pull ups.
            90 Days of Action Day 55
            DD(50 Modified Scissors) EC(i1g)
            Foundation Day 25 - lvl. 3
            Iron Glutes Day 3 - i1g
            100 Push Ups W5D1 (17+20+15+15+19; 2 minutes rest between sets)
            Yoga for Stress Relief - 7 minute Practice - Yoga with Adriene

            ---

            Consequtive Days of Exercising: 34/60
            50 Push Ups a Day Day 22 - DONE (86)
            The Pushers Week 5 - DONE

            ---

            It all started pretty bad to begin with. Running was slow for me. At least slower than usually. I failed with the pull ups. I couldn't do that one last pull ups in the last set. My muscles just failed me. I did it about after 30 seconds of rest (the one remaining pull ups), but I won't count it. I already dropped from the bar. 90DoA went well, DD went well, but then, Foundation. I don't have power to my jabs. My hooks are too wide. My low turning kicks would hit nothing important. Now. The push ups. My arms were jelly. The last set I forced the last 6 push ups in good form with my willpower although my arms were going to let me down any moment. I planned to do some more push ups, some plank and the next days from the programs and a good 30 minute flexibility yoga sequence, but nah. I didn't even have the motivation to do a yoga sequence for bad mood and just went with the 7 minute one. I felt really down. The yoga sequence, again, helped me to lift my mood. I think that I'll do some days when all I do is train and until my muscles start to fail me. It would be maybe just once a month or two months. But I think it would develop me. Right now I feel pretty disappointed in myself. Bad mood. Rant over.

            See ya!

              Some days it's just not meant to be!
              It looks to me like you still got quite a lot done, even if it wasn't everything you set out to do.
              There's no need to be disappointed, you're still epic and still put in a massive effort!

              Comment


                You are training extensively every day so it can't be perfect all the time. You still did quite a lot.

                Maybe consider a real rest day (not as in lying down on the couch, but maybe a nice quiet walk or bike ride and just some thorough stretching or Yoga. Your body will thank you and start strong the day after.
                Is there really "Yoga for bad mood" ?

                Comment


                  Maegaranthelas Nefisa Thank you both!
                  I think I don't have to specially include those rest days because from time to time they tend to come themselves in form of too busy or exhausting days to work out much. But thanks for the recommendation!
                  Yes, there is yoga for bad mood The youtube channel Yoga with Adriene has lots of directed yoga sequences including for mood swings, for love, for when you're angry if I name just a few yoga sequences directed towards emotions. It definitely is worth checking out is you want something relaxing and something to untangle your muscles after working out

                    I'm not gonna lie, I'm slower now in running since I haven't followed the program for about a week at least now. But I got the rythm and it wasn't hard. My arms were protesting with push ups, they're still tired from yesterday, because yesterday I pushed my arms to muscle failure with both pull ups and push ups. Foundation is a really boring program. It isn't hard, it has just high reps of boring stuff. But in three days (or maybe even less if I feel like it) the program will be over. And also possibly my long training routine. I will be off to university and I have to cut my training down from 2.5-3 hours to 1-1.5 hours max a day. Of course, it depends on the day, some days I guess I will have more spare time, but we'll see. So I have to choose carefully with what I continue. I will finish 90DoA (one day doesn't take over 30 minutes) and take and finish totals. I will continue with pull ups, push ups and plank and also running (great to hold form and stamina, a good warm up, too) and do a little yoga for flexibility after each session. I started with my 10 minutes elbow plank a day challenge to improve my elbow plank time and I can say that it's already working. As are 50 push ups a day challenge. I guess doing a little of an exercise spread throughout the day will help to improve me on that area more than just doing workouts from time to time. I'm a night owl. I can't concentrate before it's dark.

                    See ya!

                          I realised how exhausted I am because I have worked out beginning with it at 21.00-22.00 and ending around midnight or even 1.00. And I have worked out like that at least for a week. I didn't realise it before (I don't usually feel exhausted even when I am and don't get enough sleep), but there are some signs that indicate it. For example I crave sweet things and need to take in a lot of foods that give you fast energy, I feel really cold all the time even when it's hot outside and my muscles don't cooperate that well anymore (they don't get stronger and always feel tired). So yesterday I didn't push it when the beginning of my training happened to land on 23.00 and I completely understood my need for rest today when I almost dozed off while getting my hair cut at 15.00.

                          Today was a very busy day. I moved almost all my stuff to my apartment in my university city, bought myself a pull up bar that can be put between doors (for the apartment. I have no desire to buy a gym membership and actually go to gym or do pull ups in the middle of winter in a playground) and got to home around 18.30. Then I went to sleep, because I almost dozed off while getting my hair cut and woke up at 20.00 refreshed. Although it takes more time to get myself out of that exhaustion, it was a good start. No time for planks today. Since I knew in which state I was, I wasn't even considering taking the day 4 again and decided to go with something more easy. Turns out it was a good idea, because the end got hard even with that one. I get that upward and downward dogs are stretching but come on now, it's not exactly the easy stuff especially when it's followed by 20 plank step ins. This was a strength, not stretching workout! And I finished Foundation! Another badge! And only 30 more days of 90 Days of Action.

                          Good night all! See ya!

                            Good work

                            And if your energy levels are terrible, don't hesitate to take some more rest. You need to have some energy for your uni studies and talking to people as well

                              Happy badge day !

                              I'm actually exhausted just by reading the list of your daily workouts, so it 'd make sense that you'd be tired actually DOING them. That's impressive !
