Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Day 10 of Project Energise, I finally made it back to the shed gym, on my own to restart my slightly forsaken strongperson training programme! I restarted the Stoltman programme that I started this time last year, because it is simple (but not easy!) and it really works! So I headed down to the (still…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Squatober…

So, I have just discovered that Squatober is a thing. I don’t know why it has a mustache on it, I am hoping they are not obligatory… It is as simple as it sounds, it is squatting, every day in October…or possibly every day in October apart from the Sundays. Whichever it is it is…… Continue reading Squatober…

Project 44: Day 14 If in doubt, squat

I was in doubt… I doubted that I wanted to do anything at all other than remain laying down and possibly be sound asleep this morning. I doubted it, but I got up anyway as Tuesday is one day I can’t put the gym off until the evening! I haven’t put the gym off until…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 14 If in doubt, squat

Project 44: Day 8 T-shirts never lie!

Well most of the time they don’t… Well, ok, sometimes they do, but today mine didn’t! Leg day is what my shirt said so leg day is what it was! I made it to the gym 10 minutes earlier than I have been getting there, this is definitely progress…I will continue to make it earlier…… Continue reading Project 44: Day 8 T-shirts never lie!

Project 44: day 4 Leg day

The gym at the weekend is odd! Well, no actually, the gym is exactly the same but it contains people I don’t know. Not even to nod to! Not even the staff!! However, I suspect if I continue to go in at roughly the same time at the weekend this might change! It’s still my…… Continue reading Project 44: day 4 Leg day

Janathon day 22: a Tuesday of many activities!

Today started with PT which involved squats and sled pushes, which are some of my favourite things so that was an excellent start 😁 Lunchtime involved running… I tried out my old running shoes because my calves hurt yesterday, my calves were fine today but my feet hurt a lot…so I have no idea what…… Continue reading Janathon day 22: a Tuesday of many activities!

Janathon day 15: and now for something completely different…

I knew eventually I would do something that wasn’t just a walk and some yoga!! Today I managed to get out for my first run of 2019. My last run was on 20th December, so I wasn’t expecting much from this one. However it went a lot better than I expected 😊 I did 2…… Continue reading Janathon day 15: and now for something completely different…

Janathon day 4: gym/walk/yoga

Today seemed to follow a very similar pattern to yesterday… I went to the gym in the morning with my friend Jeanette and did squat/pull up super sets (assisted pull ups…I am definitely not good enough to do them without assistance!!) we followed this with a circuit which involved punching and kicking…mainly because the gym…… Continue reading Janathon day 4: gym/walk/yoga

Junethon day 28: Project Warrior Goddess day 4: all the squats!!

I am wearing this t shirt right now… Which turned out to be quite appropriate. I started the day in the gym…I wasn’t entirely awake but made it there somehow and managed to do somethings… Starting with squats! Heavy(ish) weighted squats and sled pushes because they are the things I do in the gym when…… Continue reading Junethon day 28: Project Warrior Goddess day 4: all the squats!!

Juneathon day 12: These are a few of my favourite things…

Today’s favourite things are squats and kettlebells 🙂 They took place in my PT session which happened at 7 o’clock this morning. I think I have had PT at 7 o’clock on a tuesday for nearly the entire duration of this blog (which is a startlingly long time) so this can’t be too surprising really……… Continue reading Juneathon day 12: These are a few of my favourite things…
