So tonight I got to have my first Mis-Fit Workout of the new year (aren't new years fun? ha!) I got to meet a couple of new folks and see that I'm not the only one that took a few days off for the holiday. This is a great group and if you are in the Long Beach/South Bay area I would definitely check it out.
So we started our new year with some CORE. Nothing like doing a whole mess of push ups and lunges and plenty of Superman/Bananas to get your Core going. I've been home for about an hour and I can already feel my arms and my abs going all squishy sore. I can feel my abs and I'm just sitting. That's how you KNOW that you've worked yourself hard. I'm feeling good after a good group workout.
I was doubly excited today because I finally had some time to put together my pull up bar. Alas, I must have the oddest door frames EVER. The pull up bar didn't work in any of my door frames. Some of my frames made a corner that was too close together so the bar didn't sit right in the frame. One of my door frame has a higher ceiling on one side but of course it's the side with the door in it and so the bar didn't quite work right in that door either. I even tried the bathroom doorframe but the lip of the frame was so narrow that the bar didn't feel secure. Alas, I got to pull the whole thing apart and repackage it up to send back to the store. Still on the lookout for an alternative but I think my door frames are not "standard". It would definitely help is at least one of my door frames didn't actually have a door in it (I noticed today that's how Allan got his pull up bar to work). Oh well. I'll just have to keep on trying. Oh yeah!
