My third....

So, today was my third day. I did better than the first day. I felt sick and tired from my long and busy day with only 4 hours of sleep but I still went on...I decided to skip the running because it was very late, around 10pm and I didn't want to wake anyone at my house. So, I jumped rope for 10 minutes as cardio. I had a lot of fun doing that. When it came to the workouts I skipped the handstands. I'm not very balanced like that yet and I don't want to hurt myself. So, with that being said, I only did 2 sets of 30 push-ups and 2 sets of 10 pike push-ups. The most difficult was the hollow hold. 1 minute feels like an eternity when you are holding that position. 

If you feel sick or tired, do something.....anything! Sick and tired days will start to be more frequent if you use them as an excuse not to get active. 

My second....

This day was so great! I woke up early, and got my workout done before school. I ran a mile in 15 minutes, which was worse then Monday, but I'm just going to keep going. I did all of the workouts on the page except for the squats. I prefer the second position squats because they work the inside of the thigh. I modified the lunges so that I only did 2 sets instead of 3 sets of 20. If you don't have strong legs, this will be challenging. I encourage you to keep going because after a month or 2, you will begin to notice that it has become easier. 

So never give up when it gets tough, you will be glad you didn't. :)
