Today was a bit tough. I fasted yesterday and was still fasting this morning when I worked out. Almost as soon as I got into the warm-up, which is designed to get your heart rate up a bit, I started to feel like you do at the end of a work-out when all your glucose is gone. I knew what was going on, and decided to try to push on, but take it easy if I needed. I ended up doing okay and felt better by the end. I also got to almost 30 seconds of my hands-and-knees to hands-and-toes exercise. When I started it, I could barely do 15 seconds. (My workout is 30 seconds of an exercise followed by 30 seconds rest.)

Goal: Build some muscle, increase my flexibility and do PT for my ankle
