Reboot days 50 – 54: a tale of gyms, not getting lost in the woods and a stolen tooth!
Day 50: Monday…the day someone stole my tooth!!
OK…it was a dentist and I paid him to do it so it may not count as stealing…actually it sounds worse than stealing…
In other words, I had a wisdom tooth out. I was not actually expecting to have a wisdom tooth out, I was expecting a consultation where the dentist confirmed that my wisdom tooth was broken, and that I should come back a different day to have it taken out!
This is not what happened…he took a quick look, decided it should come out and then gave me an injection, some x rays and attacked me with pliers! This was all a little off-putting as I have never had any sort of dental work done before! From the horror stories I have now heard about wisdom teeth, I think I got off fairly lightly. It did leave me a little shaky however and so my plan of running after the dentist and then going to train my client went out of the window!
Instead I went home and sat down…then after a sufficient amount of sitting I did Yoga for when you are sick from the lovely Adriene of Yoga with Adriene
It was enough!
Day 50 done
Day 51: Tuesday…PT against all common sense.
According to the info on what to do after you have had a tooth out you shouldn’t participate in sport or vigorous exercise on the day of the extraction. I took this to mean the actual day…going to bed and getting up again makes it a different day right? So I got up in the morning and went to PT. This is perfectly reasonable I think!
It was an excellent PT session in which I did some trap bar deadlifts and some kettlebells and I am pretty sure there was something else… but I was a little vague that day possibly due to wisdom tooth after effects…
Day 51 done 🙂
Day 52: Wednesday…gym and dancing
Wednesday is always gym and dancing…this shouldn’t be a surprise 🙂
The gym was pretty good, It was the second occurrence of the stupidly early get to the gym by 6:30 plan. Sarah and I did things such as bench presses, OH presses, rows and deadlifts. When sarah had to go to work at 7:30 I stayed on again for my bonus half hour and did squat / step up supersets and some core training…I haven’t done dedicated core trainign for ages…I should probably do more
And then there was dancing…which was awesome! Dancing is almost always awesome but this Wednesday we were practicing a brand new Mythago story for the first time ever! It is a good story too 🙂 very appropriate for times when we dance at beer festivals and breweries and such like… I am not going to tell you too much about it now…you’ll all just have to wait 😀
Day 52 done 😀
Day 53: Thursday…the day I didn’t get lost in the woods…again!
As you might have realised this getting lost in the woods business is featuring fairly prominently in my mind right now…Ths time, I did go for a run, and it was in woods, and whats more they were woods I had never been to before…and I still didn’t get lost!
I managed it by taking susie with me, she knew the woods and pointed me in the right direction. Which was initially up a great big hill…then down said hill by a much longer shallower route, then some of the way back up again up a “slight slope”. Suffice it to say, we have different ideas when it comes to slight slopes…
However none of this is important…the important thing is I ran for 10 mins without a break, this is a longer continuous interval than I have run for 2.5 years!! it wasn’t the only interval, there were others, but this one was the unexpectedly awesome one. OK it was downhill but still I am super pleased that I am making progress 😀
Day 53 done 😀
Day 54: Friday…gym day 😀
Friday was the day for squats and rows… and then some relatively rare (for us) isolation exercises focusing on quads and lower back 🙂
Why yes Olympic bar…it was heavy!!
Day 54 done 😁
