I am amazed how fast my strength and endurance levels return, especially after the mandatory day of rest on sunday. Thought I'd make sure to write this, so when I look . . .

Day 4 of exercising

Weight lifting is fun, but what I don't like is the shaky feeling afterwards. Currently my muscles are fatigued and lack the fine tuned motor skills necessary to do basic tasks.
