29th of April and my 29th Day in a row for workouts!! If you have never tried this EVERY DAY workout mentality you should! Something every day changes things in my brain-- so many less excuses, no loss of momentum and such a sense of pride!Today was 21 mins of bike in the morning, then 20 mins of lifting just now: inverted pull ups, bicep curls and pull ups- plus some core work for both my abs and lower back.Yesterday, I had a good solid run for 20 mins-- a couple intervals at 8mph, then 10 mins straight at 8. It was good and no quad flare up!!
