As I’ve said previously, my current exercise schedule is Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday. Everything I read about using weights, even light weights, says I need to take a day off every 1-2 days (although the one-on one-off program seems to be for intensive weight training). So, because I don’t want to add strained muscles to my woes, today is a day off.
It feels weird. I mean, I know I’m not slacking. But I also know that my walking program (when I could do it) called for me to hit 5.5 miles a day five days a week. So, right now, part of me feels like a slacker. I’m not letting it get to me, mind. But it feels really strange.
Also, do you want a few tips on exercising leg muscles you don’t normally use? Try limping. My goodness, but my legs ache from the unusual walking pattern. I don’t know if it actually is dervish, but I’d hate to think I’ve got all these aches for nothing.
