Since cross training was on the workout schedule for today and since I am still dealing with that blister and some lower abdomen issues, I figured I'd give the Vibram FiveFinger KSO's another shot. It had been a while since I tried them for the first and last time by running over 4 miles in them on the road, shredding my calf muscles in the process. So today I went about it in a much smarter way, which translates to me just running one mile on a dirt trail in them. Anyway, it all went well with no calf pain, yet. I followed it up with a few push-ups and crunches, realizing very quickly that I have been neglecting my upper body strength. Let's just say I felt like a wimp when I got done. As a result, I plan to do a set of push-ups and crunches once a day, every day with some yoga workouts thrown in for good measure. Of course, having never done yoga, this should make for yet another interesting experience.
