    Hello Bees.. Its been quite some time..
    It's very easy to stray from a routine without a log like this here.. and I didn't even realize it..
    Thank you TrompyNL for pointing that out.. I went ahead and did all 5 days from Aug 1-5th with EC..
    But then again strayed from it..

    I should thank oneironaut for posting regularly on Discord channel.. especiallly runs at the end of the day for oneironaut being the first thing I see in the morning..
    This has kept me on track with my '100 Days of Running' (HDOR) event not missing any day till date..
    51 days has passed in the event and I have walked atleast 2kms.. (mostly 3 kms) on every day.. including atleast 10 kms every sunday (7 so far)..
    From today I shall update the log on daily basis and also will return to training with foundation light.. and of-course DDs..
    see you all again at the end of the day with today's log..

    So it's been quite some time.. I am following the plan I made, so I'll just mention what I have been doing as summary.

    1. atleast 2kms walk every day.. as part of the 100 days of running..
    2. alternate days: 3 X 60 (shoulder taps, bicep extensions, chest extensions), 100 raised arm circles.. I realized one day that I can just do this while walking and since then made the post dinner walk in the park a routine along with this.
    3. Meditation everyday morning.. - time varies on the day, but a minimum of 15 mins.. (that was the least I logged..)
    4. 10 kms on every sunday.. since last 2 weeks, the shoulder is not hurting anymore.. and I plan to start running from ground up now..
    5. Additionally I have added this shoulder & back routine almost everyday... just to make sure that everything related to shoulder stay fit and functional..

    I am hooked to Assassin's creed Odyssey.. the reason I was not able to update the log regularly.. I ended up not sleeping one entire week ( I mean 2 or 3 hrs per day doesn't count right..) and getting back to normal was difficult.. Thankfully the sunday 10K helped to break it as I was dead tired with no sleep and 10K..

    And recently I have joined the discord too.. and thinking to start doing DD & WoD daily.. let's see when I'll start and how long I'll keep up the streak..

    Thank you and Have a Great Life Bees...

    The past week was good or rather mixed..

    I decided that based on the upper body light, I'll create a routine that I can do as a warmup when fit & active or as a minimum when not so good or recovering..
    it goes like..

    3 X 60 (shoulder taps, bicep extensions, chest extensions), 100 raised arm circles, 50 march steps (could advance to high knees or jump rope eventually)
    atleast 30 mins meditation every morning..
    and while traveling to office clench/un-clench at morning & overhead flex hold at evening.. which I followed, because that's the only thing I do in bus (apart from listening to music.. )

    Now all that was really nice planning and great.. BUT.. I did all that on the first day.. though 2 sets instead of 3 (both time crunch and my hands gave up..)
    and whatever happened, I was not able to continue not only the exercises in the morning and didn't even iced the shoulders..
    the shoulders are fine now.. during today's 10K, I felt the right shoulder a bit heavier when I tried to observe closely and gave attention to it.. else no issues through out the walk..

    Majority of skipping happened as I had to wake up 40 mins early to accommodate all those reps and meditation in the morning.. and I was unable to sleep till 12.00 at night..
    so today, I haven't slept during the entire day, did the 10k just a while ago, had dinner and took 25 mins typing and entering all the run data and I am dead tired..
    I hope to fall into deep slumber as soon as I post this and shutdown my computer now and wake up early and energetic to do all those planned activities..

    Ah.. I almost forgot.. I haven't played video games in my life (except "Freedom Fighters" & "Sniper Elite", FPS games some 10-11 years back).. so last November I bought an awesome (to me at that point of time) gaming laptop and finally last week started playing Assassin's Creed Odyssey...
    And that was the reason I was not able to sleep early.. I mean I am playing for the first time in life and there's none to stop me except myself and the obligation of going to work next day..
    now good night, morning & evening to bees around the world.. I am off to sleep..

    Hi Amirsh I felt like not to keep it considering I was not able to continue anything with the shoulder injury..
    And this week too, getting to set a particular routine which I can hold when traveling, lock-down or in any situation, I was only able to do the 2K walk daily.. (will update the log sunday after the 10K)..
    So I decided to reclaim the Ironborn once again.. but not right away.. Now I know and have witnessed the changes that can happen..
    First, will recover, then steadily but surely will reclaim it..

    12-July-2020:

    D13 & 14 of Power Grip Challenge
    D09 & 10 of Upper Body Light

    It has been a good weekend with almost no shoulder issues.. I didn't do the rotor cuff workout as a workout perse.. but did kept doing those exercises now and then..
    while doing the 10K (walk) I had mild shoulder pain every 4kms or so, when I had to raise the hand for a while (200-400mts) and it subdued..
    The pain has reduced quite a bit.. but the shoulder has no strength at all.. it is being difficult to hold on a water bottle too...
    while performing the Upper Body light.. the recovery time has considerably increased from set to set.. but there is still pain during the bicep extensions.. not so severe but not mild either.. will keep working and logging it..

    Thats it for the weekend bees.. have a great time..

    Thank you for your concern Amirsh, I was only thinking out loud.. and it really hurts so I am not going to run..

    10-July-2020:
    2.49 kms - 28' 29" - walk #1/100 HDOR
    D09 & 10 of Core Control Challenge
    D09 & 10 of Power Grip Challenge
    D05 & 06 of Upper Body Light
    Rotor Cuff Workout

    Today overall it was good.. the pain has reduced alot when I woke up in the morning..
    while doing the upper body light exercise too, there was comparatively less pain, which reduced with some light stretches after the workout..
    While walking, at around 2kms or 20 mins of walking I felt a light pull at the shoulder.. immediately got the hands behind my neck and the pain disappeared again..
    I look forward to how I might fell after the 10K walk (supposed to be a run.. but now no way.. )
    still I shall continue to improve the tendon, ligament and mobility of the shoulder before going to start anything heavy... which I know will take a while.. but what else can I do..
