Took a walk around the new place. It’s not a very walkable location. No footpaths and the road have no edges so I think I will be confining myself to laps of the rather large complex where I now live. It was a short amble today – about 1.3km around the outside. I know I can get another 500m in but my enforced walking partner had other ideas. We certainly didn’t walk far but I did do a YouTube exercise program based around core muscle development. It was meant to be 25 minutes long. 45 second intervals with 15 second rests between the sets. Ummmmm – I really need to work on my core. I didn’t manage 45 seconds of anything and stopped after 15 minutes. I didn’t think I was so unfit – still I have a base line so as long as I improve total time and length of sets I can manage I will be good. I will revisit the program every couple of weeks.
The complex also has a gym so that will be handy on my husband’s days off. There is a swimming pool but that is not large enough for laps. I could probably do some water polo games with my living companions 0 didn’t bring the water polo overseas with us but there must be a sports store in this neck of Louisiana.
The walk was not much 1.3km and done slowly but it was pleasant and flat!!!! But I guess that seems to be my adopted state’s geography – my old geography teacher would attempt to get away with gently undulating but I think “very minor undulations” would be more appropriate.
Judging by the speed I’d say Jetlag is still a feature of my life at the moment. Hopefully it will disappear soon. Anyway – back on the exercise band wagon.
