Last night I did something I never usually do. I trained. Sunday nights are usually for movies, a roast, a bath, book and early bed.
But last night I had an early dinner and I’d had a fairly lazy day. I needed to exert some energy. So I pulled on my shorts and go to it. Incidentally the ‘small’ training shorts I bought when I started Freeletics are now considerably less baggy than they used to be. Seems all those squats do make a difference.
And I was glad I worked out. It took less than half an hour and then I slept like a baby.
I started with:
Endurance (full body)
5 sprawls, 20 high knees, 20 jumping jacks, 30 secs rest x 5 sets
Pretty straightforward. Felt like a warm up, and certainly raised my pulse.
50 push-ups, 20 sit-ups, 50 squats x 2 sets
Thought this would be easy, but either I was out of practice or was tired. The push-ups were really hard. I wanted to do it under 10 minutes, but only managed 12:15.
Then I stretched and had a bath. And felt like I’d got a head start on the week. Will definitely be doing that again.
Here’s where I am versus week 1
