Personal experimentation

Yeah, Stage 4! As I wrote out the list of exercises last night, I saw that there was nothing new on the list– it was a repeat of Stage 2, but with 3 sets of 8 reps rather than 2 of 10. Works for me– that means I don’t have to spend time trying to learn the exercises! I jumped right in, picking up with the weights I was using at the end of Stage 2, and finished in a relatively short 45 minutes. (However, I only held plank for one minute, and only once. My back is still not awesome, and it seems to really dislike planks.)

One of the things I decided when I started this blog was to always be honest. No embellishing to make myself look awesome or glossing over ways I’ve fallen short. In real life I’m a scientist; when you write notes on your work, you don’t erase mistakes or take pages out or condense it. If you do something incorrectly, put an X through and note what happened. The process is important, and leaving out or changing details makes it hard to follow the story.

In a way, I’m conducting an experiment (only with N=1, of course, and no control!) and this is my lab notebook.

    I’ll be your control. You do NROLW and I won’t, and then we’ll see how that turns out :-D
