Motivation for Fatcats and possibly Chumlies of Fatcats!
Monday- pft. Yes it was.
Tuesday- Gym, 40 minute run on the treadmill, followed by
Bicep curls 10k x10x 3 sets.
Bent over rows, 12.5k. x10x3 each arm
Tricep pull downs 30k 8 x 4
!000m on rowing machine, 4 mins 20 seconds ( just checking, preparing for speedy 6000m later in week)
Bike, 20 mins-we hates the recliner.
shower, walked home-bout 4k. Pooped.
wednesday- I walked about 9k. Lazy sort of day really in terms of real exercise.
Thursday- Gym, I ran split Ks on the treadmill, three fast, two slower. Best time was 5:10 mins for 1K, not exactly fleet of foot, but good for me. I'm desperately trying to incorporate some speed into my running. We'll see how it works out.
Then I did,
Fly lifts, 5kx10x4
Shoulder press 18kx8 x3, last few reps were messy, but it's a slow over head lift, there's no bounce or extra motion so it gets tough on tired arms.
Traps, 12.5k, downward sweep, 10x 3.
20k on those stupid bikes, but at least I got to watch Judge Judy while I peddled. I hate recliner bikes.
Walked home. bout 4k.
Friday- Five mile run in the Phoenix Park with some chaps. It was a beautiful day and I felt like bursting into song, so clearly I was high on something, toast maybe.
Satdee. Nowt so far, but my plan is to race 6k on the rowing machine, aiming to come in under the half hour mark, I will do this after I walk down to Rathmines and back which is about 9k, but it's a beautiful day, sunny and bright, the perfect day for a stroll.
Tomorrow I"m going to do a long run too, about 20k.
Must say, even though my sleep has been poor, I'm noticing renewed bursts of energy this week, possibly due to my diet and hoochlessness.
I definitely feel as though I am breathing much more freely since I cut out most of the dairy produce I normally eat. I still have skimmed milk in my coffee and when I make a hot chocolate, but there has been no cheese or yoghurts since December.
Now it could just be that because I'm not drinking like a sailor on shore leave everything feels better, but I do believe my no red meat/limited dairy appears to be adding to my general sense of well being.
We'll see I suppose. I don't miss red meat at all, not even bacon. The Paramour made bacon and eggs and toast this morning, and I was surprised to find the smell of it did nothing for me. I do miss cheese though, and come the end of the month I'm going straight to Marks and Spencers for a block of Double Gloucester which I'm going to wolf down with zesty Italian tomatoes. Oh yes.
