Training Log (Saturday 28th February)

Just realised I really should post this sooner rather than later!

I don't actually have my workout wallet with me, but I can remember pretty much what I did on Saturday.

some excuses first...

it was the first time I've done any weight training since the beginning of February, so I'm quite weak, and also the first time I've run in about as long, so I'm very slow!

so, excuse over, here we go:

Strength Training (machine based)

Activity Weight Reps
Shoulder Press 15kg 3 x 10
Lat Pulldown 35kg 3 x 10
Vertical Traction 35kg 3 x 10
Low Row 35kg 3 x 10
Pectoral Machine 20kg 3 x 10
Triceps Extension 15kg 3 x 10
Bench (bar) 20kg 3 x 10
Leg Press 60kg 3 x 10
Leg Extension 35kg 3 x 10
Leg Curl 35kg 3 x 10
Abductor 35kg 3 x 20
Adductor 35kg 3 x 20

Cardio Fitness

Activity Running
Type slow/recovery
Distance 5km
Time unsure (about 35+ mins)

So, after that not-so-taxing effort... I have since not been able to raise my arms higher than my ears(!) and have found walking down stairs, and my leisurely cycle commute, to be very challenging!
On the plus side, it felt bloody brilliant to get back to training again, such a buzz!!
I had the LostProphets and Linkin Park keeping me more than motivated, superb stuff!
Can't wait to get back to the gym again
just wish I didn't ache still.... feeling a little feeble at the mo!!


  1. Great job on the strength training!

  2. Thanks Dina :-) I love that I'm getting stronger... I think the lean and toned look will be infinitely better than the skinny saggy one!

    And Nerd Girl... yeah, they're so good to work out to... in fact, LostProphets have seen me through some hard road races, the last 10 miler I did was hellish but their beat really motivates you and pushes you on :-)
