      Thanks Redline and yes patience I must have even though it is difficult not to press on. Fortunately being patient becomes easier with age as you rightly point out.

      HellYeah80 PetiteSheWolf Amirsh Cabriel – thanks for the healing vibes. They are most needed.

          Foundation Light

          A nice run in the morning followed by Foundation Light. As always it was tough to start running again after a break. My right shoulder started to ache as there were about 2km again. Nothing serious though and it disappeared after a couple of minutes resting after the run. But a reminder to me of not pushing my recovery too fast. Push-ups were done as classic/stacked/raised leg/Spiderman/knuckle. Spider-Man push-ups put some pressure on my shoulder so I decided to do Day 20 at level 1 so not to overdo it. My right shoulder benefits from shoulder stretches but it really hurts after 3 sets so I called it a day after the 3rd set.

            I began my training session with Foundation Light Day 17 and then Day 23. Push-ups were done as classic/stacked/raised leg/Spiderman/knuckle. Spiderman were still hard for my shoulder. Then I continued to Fit Christmas Day 10 with Flutter Kicks as active rest (Foundation Light Day 22). Fit Christmas Day 10 put a lot of load on my right shoulder so I did some shoulder stretching as a finisher. At the end of my training session I did 5 diamond push-ups to test my left wrist. It didn’t feel too good so I will wait a few days before trying again.

              Restitution - no training

              My body told me it was time to take an easy day with no training so to get time to recover from the last two days of training.

                Sundance glad to see you easing into it and yes, build up slowly, give your body time to recover and get stronger. It is always a process.

                  Well done for being able to listen to your body and adjust your training/breaks as necessary.

                  I've read your introductory post with interest. Your 2015 photos are basically me, minus the lady parts. Which gives me hope that with perseverance, I, too, could achieve the great results you've achieved. Thanks for your courage in sharing the photos.

                  Keep it up!

                        Foundation Light was done in the following order: Day 30, Day 21, Day 25, Day 27. Day 29 was done in combination with Fit Christmas Day 12 and push-ups: 5 sets of 80 reps high knees/40 reps flutter kicks/10 push-ups (no rest between sets)

                        Foundation Light Day 24 was done as the last workout of my training session.

                        It was a great training session and a perfect way to end the year. My left wrist and right shoulder is slowly improving for each training session.
