Motivation for Fatcats dragging their heels and a dietary observation to boot.
This weeks sees a minor effort increased.
Weights- oh yes. Rows, 15k x10 x4
Push press,- 22k x10 x2 and then just because I was feeling pretty darned invincible I racked that baby up to 30k and did a further 8. Heaviest weight on that yet, STRIKE!
52k dead lifts 3 sets of six, I wanted to go up to the sixty but common sense prevailed. I did 120 off the bench dips interspaced with the weight and finished with a 2k run, the last k of which was 5:54, but I know I could have gone faster, so I'm happy enough.
Tuesday- ? Dunno, lazy I guess.
I walked about 12 miles.
60 squats using the 6 kilo bar to keep me straight, broken into sets of twenty. Four lengths of the gym doing weighted lunges carrying 10 kilo dumb-bells in each arm, this was interspaced with the squats. ( Hate this)
Weights, cross overs 7.5k x10x 3. Upper back rows on the machine 35kx 10x2, 40k x10
Bicep pull down, 35 kilo x 10x2, 40 kilo x 10.
Full body weight hang, one minute each time, did it four times. This REALLY stretches out those pesky back muscles. Finished off with a 1 k run coming in a 5:15.
20 minutes serious stretching and held the plank for as long as humanely possible 3 times. ( I hate that too)
Gingerday.- a particularly tough session, lots of conditioning. New not Memnoch calls this 'putting us through our paces'. My pace was -2. But afterwards I was surprised to notice I felt dandy. Lower legs are bruised to shit form the heavybag. I don't know why but this always makes me smile.
Dietary observation. Still off wheat, although I DID have two glasses of wine last night. That was it for the hooch, so I'm not overly cross about it. According to my bathroom scales a further 2 pounds slithered from my frame over the last week, this cannot not be due to ANYTHING other than the non eating of wheat. Also it was easier this week not to want any. Again I'm not saying anything good bad or indifferent about it, but I am finding the drop interesting-especially as I am still eating oat and rice and so on.
