    Day 595

    πŸ“Œ Daily Floss
    πŸ“Œ Counting Victories
    πŸ“Œ Breathe Easy

    ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ Programmes:
    - Chapter 60 Age of Pandora​ As most of my choices were B, this last one had to 'B' the same! I wonder, though, why the downloadable version does not have the ending. My internet is often dodgy so I have learnt to download programmes. Today I did it from the internet, but when I looked at my download, I saw that it seemed to stop even before the chapter was over, let alone omit the epilogue. This was a - aarghh, I almost said "fun" which seems to be about the only adjective I tend to use in relation to programmes or workouts. Got to think of something different... Er, brain not working... Okay, I enjoyed this programme. The story was engaging, and the workouts variable. Some programmes seem long, and even though this one was a two-month programme, because of the enfolding story, it didn't seem that long. Highly recommend this one.
    - Day 1 Ten After last night's gluttony, I thought I may as well get started on this programme now.
    - Day 10 Total Abs
    ​​​​​​​​​​​​ Challenge:
    - day 28 Re-center
    Hamstring Protocol. This takes me 20-25 minutes to complete because I don't tend to worry too much about rest periods. I do, for example, a set of bridges, pause for maybe 20 seconds, then do another set. For side planks, I figure one side gets a rest while I'm doing the other. I only do them for 30 seconds each anyway, and it's only two sets. What gets my legs shaking, though, are the hamstring curls with resistance band. Oh, yeah, trying to bring my heel closer to my bum really brings out the sweat and the leg shakes! The 4 sets of 8 are a real struggle still with those, and of course I do that on each leg.
    Walk for an hour. The usual 5k route, another two episodes of Zombies, Run! Took a couple of photos along the way and when I came home, ran them through the new plant identifier app I've got. I am woefully ignorant of the flora around where I live and I'd like to change that. So I think there are cornelian cherries along one side of the golf course. I'll keep my eye on them and see what develops. At the moment, just a few buds on sticks!

    The ground is very much clay around here, and this puddle is here most of the year, getting a bit bigger when it rains (which it just did) and maybe even perhaps disappearing (but leaving wet mud) in a hot, dry summer.

    And the Babylon weeping willow (I knew this one!) is just starting to open its leaves.

    I'm sure all those healing thoughts had a good effect because my calf felt much better this morning, still a bit tight, but not as though it was going to spasm, so that's good. Still, I took it easy again, but I didn't do all of the Hamstring Protocol because most of those exercises really use the calf. Actually, all I did was the fast feet (running fast on the spot) part of it. Grey and a tiny bit drizzly again today, but all too soon this sort of weather will be over because apparently next week, we're looking already at 21 degrees! I'm always sorry when winter is over.

    I've just realised that I've nearly finished Pandora. What shall I do next?

    Tomorrow I have to do a BIG workout. Like, REALLY BIG!! As we are in lockdown, my daughter's Girls' Brigade is doing stuff over Zoom again, and the easiest thing to do over Zoom is baking, right? Anyway, tonight, she made impossible custard coconut pie. I know, cruelty! I had TWO pieces, and then felt like Mr Creosote for a while. And because we've not had any food porn for ages, here's the 'after' picture.

    Oh my goodness! All those gorgeous pictures!!

    I love cold days, too. I just don’t really like gray days because I get sleepy. But I’d much rather have gray days than hot ones.
