I completely forgot to write about the final day of Hell Week.
Day 7 was a gentle end to the week. Nyx. Just sit-ups, leg raises and stand-ups. Did it in 08:10, which was 1:30 better than my PB.
And then I gave myself a break for a couple of weeks. I had a bit of a cold during Hell Week and then had a mad week at work. And then last week I was away from home and working crazy long hours so didn’t have time to exercise. I know, I know, #noexcuses, but it was either get less than five hours and exercise or sleep an extra hour, and I’m not really any good on less than seven and eight.
Felt nice to have a bit of a break. I left it so long that Freeletics sent me one of those ‘what’s happened?’ emails.
So yesterday I got back into it. Conditioning. Was tough.
3 sets of
10 Assisted Pullups
30 sec Superman hold
15 Hanging Leg Raises
I’m getting better at the Assisted Pull-ups, and Press-Ups and Superman hold are no bother, but I find the hanging leg-raises really hard. Partly because my pull-up bar is in a door frame, so it’s hard to really hang and be able to get a good swing. But mainly because I’m not strong enough! Will keep practicing.
Went for a swim today. Also felt a bit tough cos I didn’t go last week.
Going to get back into the swing properly tomorrow.
Might even try to tick off some of those advanced skills…
