Well, so far so good--I'm three weeks along and I haven't slept in or hurt myself. And now I have some numbers up on the Magic Log, and I'm starting to realize the motivational power of chasing numbers.
Speaking of numbers, I haven't been timing Day 2. I've gotten mixed feelings from this forum about that, plus my stopwatch became unhappy with its job during my first week. Basically, I've been chasing numbers on days 1 and 3, and doing Day 2 slowly and carefully, timing the three minutes rest with my alarm clock. I thought, in the future, I might add a movement or two to Day 2 (also a suggestion I got from this forum, I think), which would Elvis the numbers as well if I were timing, wouldn't it?
This week is a little weird because I'm house-sitting, and the only thing to pull on is a bare naked I-beam in the basement. I did Day 1 down there, and it was eye-opening how much harder it is to pull on an I-beam. Today is my Day 2, but I ran back to my place and did Day 3 instead (to get the numbers!) because I'll be leaving town tomorrow and there won't be any working out until next Monday at best.
I should have done Day 2. I wanted the numbers, though. I got under five minutes today, but for all I know I was unfairly advantaged by doing it early. I'm going to stick with Level 1 next week, do the whole week by the book, and see how it goes.
In short, am I missing anything by not timing Day 2? What extra movements do folks like to add to Day 2? And, as long as I'm asking, does anyone have a recommendation for "easy week" activity for someone on Level 1 (I mean, I know how to take it easy, but the official definition is "several levels below," if I remember right)?
