Year 2 Week 1: Workout round up

sheep dog
round up!

There are two problems with this weekly round up idea…

the first and most important is that i get a picture in my head of sheepdogs running around chasing my workouts and trying to organise them into a sensible order!

The second problem, is the sheepdogs are not real which means I have to use my often faulty memory to remember what i have done a whole week ago!!
(this is just a temporary logistical issue mind you…this week I will keep a note in my diary πŸ˜‰ )

So, as it was the beginning of year two and I was on something on an enthusiasm high from ending year one, I threw myself into it all with renewed zeal.

not that I think i had lost any zeal…but now I have more πŸ˜€

yes it is :-)
yes it is πŸ™‚ click on it for my review πŸ™‚

Lunchtime: 2.9km walk
PM: Insanity “fit test”
(this is not actually counted as a workout in the insanity program but believe me it is hard work and last for 30 mins!)

AM: Personal training Session (inc my deadlifts)
Lunchtime: 2.13km walk
PM: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit

AM: Insanity CardioPower and Resistance
Lunchtime: 3.08km walk
PM: Dancing πŸ™‚

PM: Insanity Cardio Recovery

Lunchtime: 2.67km Β Walk
PM: Insanity Pure Cardio

not the best run in the world..but it was something…
AM: Insanity Plyometric Cardio Circuit
PM Run 5.9km

AM: Pilates
(it was the official planned Insanity rest day)

After a week with so many high intensity work outs, if felt pretty odd to stop and do the slower paced Pilates on Sunday!

In fact it felt so odd that I actually got changed ready to go for another run on Sunday evening, until I talked some sense into myself!

I am getting much better at this self awareness thing…I knew really that I needed a break from the intensity that is insanity on Sunday, and that running would not set me up well for next week!

  1. Awesome workouts, Sam. May I suggest a system that worked really well for me last year when I did weekly workout summaries from Aug – Dec? I use to set up the week’s summary post as a strawman in my drafts folder. Each day (or every other day), i’d update it with the day’s activities and keep saving it to drafts. By the end of day 7, I had the full list of week’s activities captured and ready to publish. πŸ™‚


    1. see that is a sensible idea πŸ™‚

      It never occurs to me to have a draft post other than the one that I am about to publish!

      It is more efficient timewise than attempting to invent a virtual brain sheepdog!


      1. Yeah, I do that every now and then – mainly for trips when I know I won’t remember day 1 by the time I get to the end of day 4 or 5! Age is a terrible thing πŸ˜‰


  2. What a week! That is all so impressive.
    I keep track of my workouts with glitter pens by the way. But I am like a raccoon when it comes to shiny stuff. Idk – I like the act of writing it down old school.


  3. Hi! This post could not be written any better! Reading through this
    post reminds me of my previous room mate! He always kept
    chatting about this. I will forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a good read.
    Many thanks for sharing!
