It's been over a month since I last posted. I was ill for a little while (mild cold immediately followed by heavy cold/mild flu), so no exercising for a while.

I've been exercising for the last 2-3 weeks. My body is a bit crap after the flu(?), and I've had to make allowances. I want to be at/beyond the level I was at in October, dammit! I can be patient and realistic though. It doesn't help that I've been sleeping really badly due to generalised anxiety for the last few weeks.Read more... )

Friday:

Jogged the mile to the gym, then a quick 45 min session. Squats and walking lunges with 2 * 14kg dumbbells. Tricep pushback with 4kg (increased weight this time). Tricep overhead extension with 3kg. Time on the exercise bike.

Jogged from Old Street to King's Cross via Regent's Canal: 2.1 miles.

Danced for 2 hours at night.

Woah! Today I am going to have a quiet day in, do a bit of housework and maybe wander out for a bit but no exercise. Knackered.

Long time no update.

The weekend before last I walked 23 miles in one day and gave myself a touch of achilles tendonitis. Had to rest as a result.

I finally got back to the gym today. Did a light upper body workout (chest mostly, bit of shoulders and arms). I had my first go on the elliptical/cross trainer since I got RSI, and it was fun!

Yesterday I did a trial jog, only about 1/2 mile. It went ok, and I'll do a longer run tomorrow.

On Friday/Saturday I walked between 30 and 36 miles.

Sunday was a rest and moan day.

Today was mostly a rest day. I waited until after sunset to avoid the heat, and went for a 1.6 mile jog.

Go me!

I jogged just over a mile today on my own! I am very pleased with this. I sneaked it on myself, I was dressed for a walk and wasn't expecting to jog, which probably helped me *just do it*. (Bloody good slogan, shame it's so connected to a huge global brand.) Map of the route I took. I walked 8 miles in addition to the 1 mile jog. I did a bit of a sprint too. I really like sprinting :-)

[livejournal.com profile] doubtfulace is really inspiring me :-)

Saturday: run with [livejournal.com profile] doubtfulace, disco dancing in the evening.
Sunday: rest day.

Tomorrow I have a delivery coming, so I don't know what exercise I'll be able to do. Wednesday I should be able to get to the gym.

Having a rest day today. I think I may be coming down with something, and I don't want to spread my germs around. Gym will happen when I feel better; I'll probably do some walking in the next couple of days.

Edit: Had another rest day the following day (Sunday 10th May), cold well and truly developed. I tried to do a little bit of light movement around the flat (more gentle than aerobics) and that knackered me. Hopefully I'll have more vigour tomorrow.
