Well…that may be slightly exaggerating the importance of this monday…
A rare thing did happen mind you, I actually admitted that I was too weary and in from work too late to make body pump!
The only way I could have got there sensibly would have been to skip tea and have it when I got back, which would have meant I definitely wouldn’t have had enough energy to do the class justice!
Of course I didn’t just do nothing..that would be craziness at this stage in the game!!
ok…you know me better than that 😀
First things first, I walked!
My new basis tracker set me challenges, and I get points for them…I am finding this much more motivating than my fitbit 🙂
One of the challenges is to walk at least 5000 between 12 midday and 5 pm. In the pursuit of this, I walk as much and as far as I can in my lunchbreak.
If I push it I can get the whole 5000 steps done in on walk…
On monday, I got 6217…which is not bad for 42 mins in New Rock boots!
As you can see I walked for 42 mins and went 3.14 km
It was a nice walk, and I met the train ticket wielding cat again…
he didn’t have a ticket this time…
and he didn’t stop so I could get a picture…
At this point I was intending to go to body pump, but my afternoon didn’t go as planned and I ended up in work far longer than is good for anyone!
I didn’t miss out completely on evening exercise mind you… it was day 2 of the arm challenge and as such I did:
8 x press ups
8 x dips
15 x bicep curls
15 second punching
followed by: (all weights are per arm)
12 (per arm) x alternating bicep curls (5kg)
12 x OH triceps press (5kg)
12 x chest flys (3kg)
12 x lat raises (3kg)
12 x calf raises (5kg)
12 x oblique crunches
12 x back extensions
and then, just because I was getting withdrawal symptoms:
20 x regular squats
10 x plie squats
10 x low pulse squats
10 x narrow squats
Day 346 Complete 😀
