Get Fit Body and Mind in 12 Months — Day 93

I got up a bit earlier than usual so I’d be able to fit in a full stretching routine and run before I went to work. I was already accustomed to doing most of these stretches, so I just figured it would take a little longer. In reality, it was more akin to an actual workout! At one point it felt like my muscles were going to tear apart, and I had to activate my core muscles a lot throughout. The stretching routine ended up being a bit tougher than I expected, but I felt really loose and ready to tackle the day ahead of me.

When I got home it was raining, so I decided to join my kids who were playing with some toys they got recently. This made me realise that playing with my kids is not only a lot easier–I also seem to be enjoying it a lot more. Even though I wasn’t expending nearly as much energy as I usually would chasing them around, just spending quality time with them felt just as rewarding (and just as exhausting). No matter what I end up doing with my kids, I definitely need to enjoy these moments while they last.

If only I could build muscle just by thinking about it…

For tonight’s workout, I did some heavy lifting. I typically keep my reps low when I lift heavy, but I decided to go to failure in order to recruit as many muscle fibres as possible. It was a challenge, but I managed to get through it without killing myself. The stretching routine I did this morning seemed to help with the soreness I had yesterday, but I still opted to forgo any cardio to give it a chance to fully subside.
