from Aunt Sharon > I’m really sore. Just my quads though – everything else feels like it does whenever I do any kind of exercise. I spent four hours redesigning the configuration of all the furniture in half the house. It’s funny, for years when we owned a home I always referred to paying the mortgage as paying the rent, because we rented for so many years. Now that we’re in an apartment again, I call the apartment a house. It doesn’t matter. It’s our living space. I worked methodically, measuring and thinking through the move of each piece and how it would affect the other pieces, plus how many other pieces I would have to move to get the target piece where I wanted it, before I actually made the move, so I wouldn’t have to move it back if I didn’t like it. I have many years experience moving furniture.
As it turns out it’s a great way to get long distance exercise – like long distance running, you clock a lot of time. My purpose is always to make each move (rearranging my living space) more efficient and to make the space appear larger and more open than it is. I also like the change. It’s not easy in a small space with a lot of stuff. This is where I do all my work, so it looks like about four people work here with all the work stations in every room except the bathroom. Plus Steve and I live here with Lilly Belle, so personal considerations have to be taken into account. I’m always happy with the result – as is Steve.
Although I didn’t do my exercise challenges today, I did pay special attention to the soreness of my quads – with massage, hot water packs and stretching.
This is the DAY 2 assignment I will do tomorrow:
Beginners: 10 reps of each squat style
Intermediate: 8 reps each x 2 sets
Advanced: 8 reps each x 3 sets
