Getting fit during quarantine

After two days recovering from the Pacific crossing, while locked away in our quarantine hotel, we began our fitness program. The first two days we did ski gymnastics following this video.

After spending seven weeks sailing, we thought we were fit but after these 20 minutes the leg muscles were burning.

For the third and fourth day Heidi chose something with a little less leg exercise.

I still sweated non stop and the lady in the video just smiled all the time. I am not sure if she is human.

Days five and six. Same lady. She is still smiling. My muscles feel better but her exercises are getting more demanding. I was so happy to see the young lady wipe a drop of sweat off her nose towards the end of the session. She is human!

After we were finished I read what the lady had written and she wrote “Dieses No Repeat Workout ist das Härteste aus der gesamten Reihe!!!” which is German for “this is going to hurt!”

Day seven.
Six days you shall labor, and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the LORD your God. In it you shall not do any work. – Exodus 20:8-11
Well you can’t argue with Exodus can you? And my muscles needed a rest anyway.
