Well I’ve decided to take on those 30 day challenge apps to see if I can get myself fit again and hopefully start a running app once I feel limbered up. The 30 day apps consist of about 10 different exercises for arms, legs and abs development with the repetitions increasing slightly each day. There are 4 levels. Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced and Expert. Naturally I recognised some time ago I wasn’t as fit as I use to be. In my teens I had no trouble getting over a six foot fence but thanks to the drinking, smoking and gauging on fatty foods in my twenties to mid thirties I’d be lucky to run 100 metres before collapsing exhausted in a heap. Look at that gut!
I have just completed day three of training. God I ache all over, but not as much as Day one which left me with a cramp in my left thigh. To be fair I do feel a little more flexible around my joint despite the pain. Tomorrow is the first rest day (as is every fourth day) and I have achieved two awards on the app. Once the pain has subsided I will consider starting the running app as well. On day thirty I shall post another pic of me on here and see if there are any differences before going in to Intermediate level. In the meantime here’s another reminder of how flacid things have become. Sorry! And watch this space.
