Now I am relatively strong for a chick and not too shabby in the fitness department, but parts of me are much stronger and fitter than others. I'm no ironwoman or even recreational jogger, but I can hold me own in the lagoon or on the yoga mat. My knee op in August was a success, so that region is gaining strength, however my right shoulder gives me major grief, enough to stop me from surfing and dusting overhead shelves. Even grating a carrot is tiring. I have a "winged scapula" - which sounds like a prerequisite for a vampire - along with classic rotator cuff issues. A weak serratus anterior muscle is partly to blame - that's the one wrapping your rib cage under your arm that looks like gills on lean folk like Aquaman. Part of my strength training is push-ups, at which I am most feeble. So here begins my six week self induced training program, with the goal to complete 100 consecutive pushups. Perhaps with my knees on the ground...
I am at level one (just). Aquaman is joining me somewhere around level six if I ever get there.
