And now I'm going to contradict my own title. Pushups, you should do them. And I do, except this morning when I did the darn things wrong.
Okay, here's the thing. I do my pushups as the coffee starts up but I do a bit of stretch first. Bear in mind that this is the beginning of my morning, a few quick exercises in the time it takes the coffee to brew.
I know, I know. At least I know now.
It's not enough time to stretch correctly. And this morning, as it always is, the pushup was the last exercise and I did a few more than I normally do. And that's when I felt the slight twinge in my shoulder that turned into a nagging pain that has troubled me all day. Nothing major but annoying all the same and a reminder of why exercising without a proper warm up is really, just a bad idea.
Somehow it's so much easier to write about exercise than it is to do it. Why is that, do you think?
