Hrmpf, I hope the barking cough reached its peak today because I don't think I can take any more of these coughing fits that make me choke. I'm exhausted and really had no choice but to again take it easy. Very happy to find out I could actually do today's Work-Out and with an extra bonus of not needing my bra, because there was no bouncing, woohoo!

Review Day 5, Preview Day 6(Spoilers)
Well, this was fun! Really getting into the story here and we're finally moving out in the open to see the world! I did Level 2 indoors marching to get to our destination and once in camp I did the reinforcements at Level 1. BUT: I did add a third push-up each time because I still can't go deep enough, so I figured I'd compensate for it to count as two proper ones;)
Loved the arm exercises, wonder if we'll feel that in our shoulders tomorrow...

EXERCISE SPOILER DAY 6*
Don't forget: to travel on the map, CHOOSE between
staying INDOORS and do high knees or marching steps
OR
going OUTDOORS and run or walk
*Yes, I do believe this is necessary in every chapter where traveling is mentioned from now on. Feel free to object.
I'm curious to see where everyone will go (I suspect going for the "easy" option will almost always be a trap;)


Examples of the exercises for Day 6 can be found in my Age of Pandora video playlist (#4 or #18 or #23).

So sorry that the cough still isn't leaving you alone :(

And yes, today was okay. No real push-ups for me. I think there'll never be a day when I'll be able to do them properly LOLOLOL

Day 6. I was a little confused, since they first say we need to travel to one of the...oh, wait. I think I misunderstood. So FIRST we travel to one of the Agora points and from there we need to choose one of the 3 suggestions. Ah, makes sense. Got it! Lots of traveling then tomorrow LOL (I found 2 Agora points? Is that right? Agora Canis and Agora Equos?)

That's correct - you travel from the camp to one of the Agoras (Canis or Equos) where you'll pick a job and then travel to the chosen location, do the job (exercise) and then travel back to your chosen Agora.

Or if you're like me, you'll do all three jobs. ;)

That's what I mentioned before we started Age of Pandora - the confusion in the Darebee forum where the mods stated you HAVE to do one job but CAN do more than one. Since I think the scraps you can earn will come in handy later, I'd like to try to do all jobs. Which, of course, means I'll spend two or three days on this chapter and y'all might move on without me. ;)

I'm hoping scraps will be currency for getting out of jobs in the future :-p I'm proud of the 200 I earned for my scorpions \o/

I think I'm actually getting better at push-ups. Okay, not as good as in my dreams, but still, I definitely notice improvement.

The traveling is a bit overwhelming to me actually. If they keep up the confusion, I may just ignore that bit and focus on the work-out sets.
I found I actually like doing the Shred warm-up beforehand, which has jumping jacks (!) so I'll rather do that than keep adding boring steps. (I saw that in the earliest draft of Pandora, they had people do half jacks instead of high knees, so I guess it's mostly about getting the cardio in)

I'm with you there. All in all I did 608 high knees today. If I DID count right lol I'll keep up for now with the high knees. But it could get actually boring after some time!

Today's chapter was awesome - loved it! :D

I used the cross-trainer at the gym to "run" to the camp so I got a really nice workout. :) Will very likely stay indoors for tomorrow's travelling (if the weather is nice, I might take a long walk instead). We'll see. :)

As for where to go, this is what confused quite a few people according to the Darebee forum and the mods stated that you HAVE to travel to one location but CAN travel to more than one.

Which means I'm gonna visit all 3 locations (spread over two days...maybe three, considering the travelling I have to do). I just think that the scraps we can earn might come in handy later so I'd better get as many jobs done as possible!
