Day two of the journal complete. I jumped rope for 30 minutes and finished up with three sets of push ups and three sets of planks. I haven't jumped rope in a long time so it did feel good to get going. In retrospect, 30 minutes was a bit much, but i wasn't going to deviate from the plan on only the second day of using the log again. So far, the motivation is working. I alternated between jumping with two feet, skipping, running, and hopping on a foot ten times then switching. Jumping rope is a good workout for the whole body, heart/lungs included. I know some people are intimidated by the rope, so if you simply want to jump in place with the different patterns or use a line on the ground to jump, that is totally fine.
I did three sets of push ups and alternated with front and each side planks. Strength work is not my first love, but I am looking to incorporate bits of it during workouts and just suck it up. As it goes, my intention is to add a little and see some benefits that will hopefully spur me on a bit. I do know, like most people, a little progress goes a long way.
