Pretty arsey weather here now BUT its all good as it’s almost Friday!!
Well one step closer than it was when I went to work this morning!!
Thursday night is my Friday night so only 2 days to work .
Tomorrow will be busy busy busy so before I know it, it will be home time:)
I had to go to the gym today as too wet to run in my lunch hour…
I like running in the rain but can’t get wet at work.
So off I toddled, very reluctantly, to do a cycle….
Goodbye 25 kms!!
Plus my modified burpee challenge, courtesy of the mean woman @ Julie’s Journey…
10 burpees, 1 min plank x 6 rounds!!
Have a feeling tomorrow it increases to 7 rounds or 12 burpees/ 1 min + planks…
You build up a good sweat & I am pleased to say I can do the burpees fairly well nowdays.
Yes at the end of 60, I am getting tired but not like I used to.
Because for so long, all I did was run with the occasional cycle or weights session, I didn’t really have any sort of strength.
I could run 3-4 hours in a session or 80+ km a week but could barely do anything strength related.
One year ago, I could barely do 15 burpees non stop, i can do about 80-100 now if I need to.
My planks, 20-30 seconds max…I can do 2-3 minutes now…
Push ups, a few half versions but now I can do 25 + full.
A box jump, well that was a long ongoing process, it took me 6 months to build up to a full one on the right sized box…
And the dreaded wall sit, I think I managed 40 seconds to start, now I am looking at 3 minutes…
So all in all, happy with my improvements in strength in the last 6-9 months.
Even though my weight has barely moved, the change in shape in amazing.
My waist has gone from 71 cm to 64!!
BUT best best best of all, I can do two pull ups unassisted!!
My lesson in all this ranting is DO SOME WEIGHTS IF YOU DON’T ALREADY!!
