After work I did my exercise routine. I am getting closer to my "ideal" one hour workout for non running days. First I start out with Tai Chi, the Yang style as modified by Chen Man Ching which takes about twelve minutes, this is a good warm-up. Next I do 25 to 30 minutes of stretching and Yoga followed by my 100 push-up and sit-up initiative (currently at 40 push-ups and 55 sit-ups) then I do 25 arm curls with 15 pound dumbells. Last night this all took about 58 minutes so I added a few repetitions of climbing the stairs. As I do more push-ups and sit-ups my workout will take longer than one hour and I may add pull-ups to my routine once I reach 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups. On the running days I am running a 5k three times per week until the last week of January when I start training for the half marathon in April.
All of the above exercise is meant to keep me fit, I would also like to eventually run a marathon and complete a triathlon-stay tuned for more as I complete my journey.
