Project Get Fit 2022: Week 13

Not me, I don’t have that much hair on my head…

Started the week on Monday with a walk (still keeping it around 1.2 a mile) and a trip to the gym. Again, I was able to add reps on some exercises. I took less time to recover between sets but don’t think I will continue to do that. It’s good for cardio fitness but I am not sure if getting my heart rate that high is a good idea. Due to the hip injury I have been skipping lunges and burpees although I am adding squats back in (slowly and carefully). Wonderful Wife joined me in the gym as well!

Tuesday I decided to push my walk a little and go for a mile. It was a little tough at the end but I made it and no ill effects the next morning.

I made another mile (or close to it) on Wednesday and then made it to the gym. It was a good workout and I was able to add a few reps here and there as I recover. Most importantly, I added lunges and burpees back into the mix. The first time since hurting my hip.

I kept up doing a mile for the rest of the week and my hip is still doing OK.

I also made it to the gym on Friday. The first three gym week in a really long time. The burpees and lunges don’t seem to be hurting my hip. I was able to add another rep of each but I am taking it very slowly and cautiously.

To top off I attended a hand-to-hand self-defense class on Saturday.

Stay alert, stay prepared and stay safe.

God bless.

Goal: Complete a Murph Challenge in 2022
