Year 2 week 4: Workout Compendium
Yep, I am sticking with compendium for now…it is the implicit promise of Snakes and Ladders that seals the appeal 🙂
That said, there were no snakes or ladders involved in this weeks exercise adventures…
There was Insanity and a surprise (and unfortunate) trip to an Osteopath which left me worse off than when I started!
I will start at the start (I am not sure it is possible to start anywhere else actually…once you start there, it becomes the start regardless of chronology…)
AM: 1.2km walk
PM: Insanity Pure Cardio + Cardio abs
AM: PT which included quite a lot of strength and lifting work, including:
- Cleans and good morning s with the 20kg Olympic bar
- Bent over rows 5@ 40kg (woohoo PB)
- deadlifts 2 x 3 @ 70kg
- Squats 5 @ 40 kg, 5 @ 50 kg, 5 @ 60 kg (woooohoooo new PB by 10kg!!)
It also included some boxing in the corm of long combos
and the discovery that my lingering slightly annoying bicep injury was hurting a little when I attempted overhead presses…
PM: Insanity Cardio Power and Resistance
Remember last week when I complained about my lack of organisation which led to me having to squeeze my in sanity workout between getting in from work and going out to dancing…
the same thing happened again…
PM: Insanity Pure CArdio + Cardio Abs
Dancing out at the local pub where I did fewer dances than I would at practice, but they were harder because they were in kit 🙂 they were:
Earth Mother, Our Henry, Foul Mouth Cat, Witch Hunt, Thor’s Hammer, Fanny Frail, Triskele
Thursday was the day I accidentally had an Osteopathy appointment…
I know what you are thinking…how can you have an osteopathy appointment by accident…well…it was like this…
I booked an appointment at the same place I normally see Sophie the Sports therapist, but she has stopped doing treatments there so I saw a new person…who I assumed was a sports therapist. Half way through a very painful session involving a lot of elbows sticking into me and some surprise acupuncture, I was told I was having osteopathy…
I don’t think this sort of thing should be sprung on you without warning!!
After all that…I was hopeful that I would feel better, even though I was extremely achy…
but I still managed to do
Insanity Cardio Recovery.
Friday was the day I woke up and found that I could hardy move my arm and by the evening, the mildly annoying pain that only stopped me doing overhead presses had metamorphosised into such extreme pain that I could hardly move my arm without crying!!
This pain got worse during the day, so as luck would have it…I managed a 3km walk so I still got my exercise in.
I didn’t manage insanity though, I could barely move my arm!
The pain in my arm was less severe than Friday…which was pleasing and I managed to get hold of Sophie the sports therapist who has agreed to treat me 😀
I also managed somehow to do a modified version of Insanity Pure Cardio.
I couldn’t do burpees because of my arm but substituted power squat jumps instead…
Sunday was dance day…
Mythago were dancing at a summer event at our local National Trust property… Wakehurst Place
My arm was slightly better again, and I didn’t want to pull out at the last minute so I went, and I danced, and I couldn’t move my arm very well but I survived!
Witch Hunt, Standing Stones (x2) Triskelle, Summerland, Maiden Castle, Star of the County Down, Broomstick.
And that was last week, I feel like I copped out on exercise towards the end of the week, but I also know that I had no choice.
I am really annoyed that my arm is now worse than it was when I started!! Hopefully it will get sorted this week!
