So – back to it… I started a 6 week recovery plan on Monday. See the last post for the details.
I got up before work and did a 2 mile run around the bridges (squinty to squigley) near to my flat. The Garmin showed 1.94 miles (3k). I did it in 18:41 and felt really really good. My foot was a little sore, but only so I knew it was there, not to stop me. I felt so good, I ran on the treadmill at night before body pump too for nearly 8 minutes.
RUN: 2.75 miles, 26:06, 295 calories (Pace: 9:39 + 9:29 / 6.2 / 6.5 mph)
On Monday night I went back to Bodypump for the first time in a while and MAN was it hard!! I did lower the weights, but probably not as much as I should have done – and I even lowered them part way through the back track!! I need to have a serious think about what I’m doing next week weights wise.
WARM UP – 5kg
SQUATS – 10kg (nearly broke my back!! – gonna do 7.5 next week)
CHEST – 5kg (ok, but need to get used to it)
BACK – 8.5kg – 7.5kg (will try 7.5kg to start)
TRICEPS – 3.5kg (ok, but need to get used to it)
BICEPS – 3.5kg (ok, but need to get used to it)
LUNGES – 7.5kg (ok, but need to make sure my legs are ok)
SHOULDERS – 5kg / 2.5kg (the right weight, but need to keep up press ups and clean presses right to the end!!)
Bodypump: 1 hour, 450 cals. Need to get back into it and then maybe will increase the weights again!!
