Last few weeks I have to travel far frequently to take care of things in remote areas. My daily routine was totally disrupted. Cannot exercise when there was not even enough time to sleep. Now that things settled down, I learn some important effects on my health that is very useful.
First, when I finally get to do my daily exercise routine, strength in my legs is not affected much. Feels awkward for about a minute and then things just go back to normal. My guess is that I have to walk a lot over the past few weeks, my legs still got enough exercise to stay in shape.
Then problem started to show when I did my ab exercises. I was able to do what I usually do but with difficulties at the end.
Finally, pull ups and other upper body exercises became so difficult that I am not able to do half of what I did 3 weeks ago. This sucks big time.
A good lesson learned – better planning necessary to stay in shape no matter what.
And the question of striking a balance between enough sleep and exercise – if we have very limited amount of time left for both, what to do?
