Tough gig with a 5:15am wake up call as it was, followed by a full day and not arriving at the hotel until 6pm. I was lazy and opted for a spa at the hotel instead.
Run Day! I headed out after work to get some kms in. I did just 4km as 2 loops of Fitzroy Gardens and it was lovely.
My trainer was sick this morning, but I managed to still get up to the gym for a great session with another trainer who was nice enough to step in. My workout was:
3 sets x 10 reps
9kg dumbell flys
9kg dumbell chest press
3 sets x 10 reps
Seated row (I just realised I have no idea what weight "7" is)
Overhead lat pull down
10 x 5kg single arm straight leg sit up (3 sets)
Finished off with some time on the army rope because for once I was actually done with the prescribed workout before the end of the session - those ropes seem light at first but alternating plyo lunges while throwing them get tough after about 5 reps.
The benefits of working from home - I can nick off in the middle of the day for a long walk with my Husband and enjoy the sunshine then finish my work in the evening when no one wants to be outside anyway? We managed a tidy 18km around the bush tracks. Not sure if you follow me on Instagram, but for those who don't - is this the most perfectly timed photo ever? I didn't even see the bird when I snapped the pic.
Another walk, I am not sure if it is me or my Husband who is training for Oxfam. I feel like I am part of the team anyway. I am just really glad I won't need to do more than 20-25km in his training walks. We pumped out another 18km today on a very tough track. Got a little lost but not too bad. The photo is from our walk on Friday, but the weather was just the same!
Away in Perth this week, so aiming for some awesome workouts! What is on the workout front for you this month? Trying something new?
