It's a kettle ball apparently. It weighs 6 lbs. We've never used equipment so I didn't know where we were going with this. I soon found out.....push ups.Then we did some twist thingy's with them. It wasn't as bad as I was expecting.
I've completed the first 2 days of week 1 of C25K. I have a date with my friend Cindy tonight to do day 3 which completes the first week. Monday, I did it at 5:00 & it was HOT! The heat index was still over 100. We're going later tonight & hopefully it won't be as hot. If anyone is planning to start this make sure you stretch A LOT before & after. Several people gave me that advice & it's worked well in keeping me from being really sore & getting shin splints.
Some of you may remember that I went to the Dr. for a swollen lymph node. He'd told me if it didn't shrink in a week to call him. Well, I waited 2 weeks & it's still swollen. He referred me to an ENT. I went Monday. She put me on an antibiotic for 2 weeks & a week of steroids. I have to see her again in 2 weeks & if it hasn't gotten smaller or softer she'll "stick a needle in it". Ugh! I don't like needles. Especially, when they're stuck in my neck. Anyway, I haven't been able to sleep since Dean left. I wake up a lot during the night. Well, combine that with the steroids & it's awful. I normally don't have this problem with the oral steroids but I can't think of any other reason that I wasn't sleepy until 10:30 last night when my normal bedtime is 9:30 at the latest & I was wide awake from 2-4:15. Needless to say I'm not feeling real perky this morning. I was moving slowly so there was no time for a Starbuck's run either. So annoying.
