4 D1W1 (HPC): The First Workout
Tonight's pushups workout called for intervals of 10+12+7+7+max 9+ (with a minimum of 60 seconds rest in between sets). Did 10+12+7+7+15.
The last 3 pushups were really hard; I kinda accidentally shrieked a bit on the last one. :)
Upon hearing this odd & unexpected noise, Java (one of our cats) cocked his head to the size & gave me a quizzical look, as if to say, "Why the heck are you doing this strange & difficult exercise?" Of course, if it were up to him, he'd probably count reclining on the floor & sleeping as exercise. ;-)
He likes to pace around & keep me company as I do my floor exercises. During pushups, he sometimes likes to rub my elbows as I'm doing them, which can be an added challenge, especially as the arms start to tire. :)
Also, he likes to stretch when I stretch. It's very comical to watch. Guess the little guy just wants to be part of what's going on, & this is his contribution. :)
