It seems my back is getting a bit stronger as the squats are not bothering me as much as they did the first time I tried them. That's a HUGE relief because the first couple of times I was honestly worried I would not be able to continue.
The workout took me longer than ever, partly because I have increased the reps for one exercise and added a couple of exercises but also because I had too much wine and chocolate last night (which resulted in not enough sleep). Again. Some people learn lessons slower than others obviously.
After almost calling it quits for the day (I was on the couch watching television having eaten a big lunch with dessert and having had two beers) I rallied and went for a spirited walk in Frink Park. It was a blast. I gently jogged up all the hills and walked the flats and the descents. My ankle felt fine thank goodness.
