I had a pretty exciting day at the gym today. I was able to use Wilson, my friend like in Castaways, the ball in a newish way.
I did an exercise with the trainer called around the world. Lots of you probably know it. Essentially you use a weighted ball,eerr, Wilson, and do a predetermined number of "Pick Pockets" which is an exersise where you are in a V-sit…like this:
and instead of holding out the hands all nice like this woman is doing, you hold on to Wilson (8 pound ball) and move Wilson from side to side. for say 40-60 repetitions. It's not hard, but it also isn;t easy to maintain the position. After the repetitions, you throw Wilson to the other person in a circle, making the Around the world happen. It's pretty hard for me to catch Wilson and maintain the Vsit.
What was exciting, other than that this was semi-fun, was that I was able to catch my friend Wilson the Ball and did not damage my hand. This is actually the first time I've done any catching of any weighted anything since the bad hand accident. So. that was fun.
Other than that. I'm doing 2 runs a day now. One longer one outside on a running path. and then a mile or two on the treadmill when I come into the gym. And still swimming.
And I'm completely tired.
