Training message came through late last night so did the Day 1 exercise this am.
As I said, I'm not used to exercising, but in anticipation of PCP- I have been doing Pilates for the past 2 months 3-4x a week so I had some endurance this morning. The pushups were the worst- even the girly ones. I'll get there! I didn't find the exercises too taxing but I was still hot & sweaty by the end. Took me about 30 minutes.
BTW, I hate my skipping rope! Of course I'm blaming it on the rope that I couldn't do more than 7 skips at some points (the rope keeps getting twisted!) but I did manage to put together 50 skips in one go a couple of times.
Felt great and I even got into work earlier than normal. Feeling very energized. Had 1/2 of my normal breakfast, it was with steely resolve that I threw away the half portion of scrambled eggs and a piece of beautifully buttered toast. I wiped away a small tear, but onward I go.
