The weekend activities and the drain they caused has subsided. Everyday, keeping the exercise routine going no matter what, is the key to sustainability. The increased sets is slow enough to not put too much strain but enough to push yourself. The burpees and crunches are still the worst parts of this program I came up with, I can’t do 35 burpees straight so I have been breaking it up into two big sets of at least 20 to 25 and the remaining as the last. No more than 30 seconds break in between. The crunches are just painful. The squats are tolerable but I am getting a small twinge in one of my hips. Either I am positioned incorrectly in my squat or I am doing it from running. Focus on stretching afterward and doing the exercises in the proper form to maximize the value of the work and to prevent injury.
I feel I am in that middle zone now but I really don’t know what 100 burpees will be like in 19 days. Looking back when I started I was dying at 10 and today I cranked out 35 on top of everything else. It’s working.
