've been battling allergies. The symptoms include difficulty breathing and it greatly affected my exercise today just as it had yesterday.
It was a cardio day and I planned to do 30 minutes on the elliptical machine and that's what I did, but it was tough. My breathing was laboured. I had to slow my pace and on several times I thought about stopping but kept going.
I'm not sure if I did the right thing, but I'd probably have to pass out to stop. There moments when I thought that might happen.
If that wasn't enough, I did stomach crunches and bicep curls afterwards.
Stomach Crunches on Swiss Ball: 30 reps x 6 sets with 2KG medicine ball.
Bicep Curls on Swiss Ball: 9kg x 15 reps x 6 sets
I decided to increase the weight for the bicep curls because 7kg seemed too easy but as I always do I lower the reps until I get used to the increased weight. It's my way of avoiding injury.
