Motivation for Fatcats and possibly for Fatcat chumlies.
I was supposed to get up early and go to the gym but as luck would have it I stayed asleep and had my first lie on of the week. Soon I must trundle off to the Asian market for all things delicious, in the afternoon I'm taking CG's dog for a long ramble where I will attempt not to drown him or let him drown himself and tonight I am to attend a paaady with a French Gay. Eep.
Tomorrow I will attempt a long run, today I will attempt to find a new dress. I don't know which is more daunting.
Monday- crippled from box jumps, one armed rows (15k) and SDLHPs during Sunday's mammoth gym session. Much pain. In lieu of doing anything that might be confused with Sport I organised a dusty book cull instead.
It hurts when I cough. naturally dust means I feel like coughing. I am an idiot.
Tuesday- still banjaxed, muscles complaining.
Wednesday- early session in the gym, ran for 55 minutes on the tread, then 25 mins on the bike. Pure cardio. No weights involved, I figure I'll give my muscles one more day or recovery. Emailed Finn on return querying why the running felt so good and so easy. I'm worried it's a fluke of some kind, but honestly I felt I could have run all day. I didn't even have my usual whingey start!
Thursday- weights involved in this baby.
Stretching warm up.
25k push jerks x10x3
Bench press 20kx10x2 could have gone heavier I suppose, but I had no one to spot me so I was a bit wary of throttling myself.
pull ups on grav, 10 using 25k counter weight,
10 using 20k counter weight,
10 using 15k counterweight. It wasn't that bad actually. Going to start with twenty next time, drop to 15 and try a 10.
Pull ups interspaced with curls, 10k each arm, x10 x 3, definitely big improvement in this. Actually I noticed a real jump in strength this week. Feeling pretty pleased with it all.
Finished with a 25k bike ride and some serious stretching in an attempt to stave off as much next day pain as possible.
Friday, I haz pain anyway. Went to kickboxing and engaged in lot of heavy bag work. Kick and strike combos, then three minute rounds on pads. Bloomin' wreaked after, but good wreaked, not bad wreaked. Then to put the final nail in the coffin that are my legs I ran 5k as fast as I could which was 28.11, damn, so close. I'll get you 27, you see if I don't!
Did I mention it was warm and sunny?
