Well, yesterday I decided to try the sit-down exercise (never much did anything for lower body, since I run a lot - figured it would be unnecessary). Sorry, I don't have the book with me now and don't know if it has a more formal name. It's the one where you hold on to a door knob for balance and slowly lower yourself to a stool, then back up again.

Holy cow! I managed to get in TWO reps of these before my leg muscles gave out entirely (and I have very strong legs). It will be interesting to see just how sore my legs are tomorrow! I can definitely say this much, though: it's a tough exercise, and judging by all internal indicators, I need to do it!

That's the wonderful thing about life - new stuff to learn all the time.
