I’ve been a bit slack again recently. I did Hell Week towards the end of July and kept going fairly well for the following week, but then I went on holiday and didn’t work out for a while.
Got back on it last week though. Even went to the park early in the morning to train and it felt amazing. Today I had a fairly easy workout:
5x Hanging Knee Raises
10x Burpee Squat Jumps
Interval (Upper Body, Abs): 4 rounds of 8x Pushups, 5s Pullup Hold, 10x Plank Leg Lifts, 60sec rest
Quite enjoyed it. Wasn’t outside so replaced the sprint with 50 High Knees.
I’m still pretty limited in the number of pull-ups I can do, so I also had to replace the pull-ups in Poseidon with assisted pull-ups. I’m wondering if I’ll ever get properly good at pull-ups. Thought I’d mastered them, but I still can’t do more than a few in a row.
Going to try and keep going this week, which is partly why I’m writing this blog – to make me accountable in some way. I find that if I write about training, I’m spurred on to do it. And because comments from readers always give me a boost 🙂
However, I can feel a cold coming on – the result of camping in the wind and rain this weekend – so I’ll see how I feel.
