Year 2, week 7: Workout extravaganza!
Ok…probably not really an extravaganza as such…but I felt like a change from compendium!
Three days last week I was holed up in a training room learning how to put people back together after various forms of disaster and damage! Or to put it another way, I was on a first aid at work course…
I now have a moderate amount of knowledge on how to sit people down in a lot of different ways and ask them a lot of seemingly random questions…which all allow me to (hopefully) figure out the best treatment…or at least the best thing to do until someone with more knowledge comes along…
It is good knowledge to have mind you…and you never know I could help….If I don’t freeze or pass out…I am slightly too squeamish to be a first aider really…
so aside from first aid goodness that left me with carpet burned knees (poor trouser choice on CPR day…) I did some other, more active stuff:
Lunchtime: Walk 2.6km
PM: Run…woohoo I actually managed to go for a run…again!!
This time I went with my friend Lisa you may remember her from the colour run and the great south 5k…
We decided to go along the downs link, and to do about 5km…we did 5 min run 1 min walk intervals and for almost the first time ever I managed to run without music! I know this doesn’t sound like much of an achievement…but it is for me 😀 we also managed to chat as we went.
Sadly…I have very little evidence that this run actually occurred as I forgot to turn strava on…:-( so I have no idea what the pace was or anything! the app that I used to measure the intervals reckons we went 5.15km but that is all the information I have!!
It did happen though…honestly!
AM: PT!! which was odd…as it felt like only 5 mins since I had my last PT session! It was excellent, my bicep/shoulder was still not 100% so we did more shoulder strengthening exercises, at Sophie’s direction…
I sometimes think it s a bad thing when your PT and your Sports Therapist are friends…
we also did a lot of boxing and kickboxing, including a session of 360 defence which is awesome 🙂
Lunchtime: 3km walk
PM: Insanity Max interval circuit
Lunchtime: 2.7km walk around crawley…of all places…
ok…you are likely not local, Crawley is not as salubrious as it could be…
PM: Insanity Max Plyo Circuit
Followed by 2 hours of dancing…
yes…I did that again…
no…I will probably never learn!!
Thursday was crash day…and I mean real complete can hardly move with tiredness crash day.
I don’t know why, maybe a result of a crazy Tuesday and Wednesday, maybe a reaction to lots of learning and pictures of horrific injuries
(First aid course remember…not just weird internet searches)
I managed to squeeze in a 30 min walk in my lunchbreak, and then somehow fall asleep for the whole evening…on the sofa at about 8pm then I gave up and went to bed at 9:30…I haven’t been in bed at 9:30 since I was about 12!
I guess sometimes you just need the sleep!
Lunchtime: 1.6km walk
PM Insanity Max Cardio Conditioning
Normal service was resumed…I suppose having 10.5 hours sleep in one go occasionally does you good!
Saturday was dancing day 😀
dancing day that seemed like it might have been on the twee side as when we turned up it looked suspiciously like a summer fete…
however, we were proved wrong…
It was a summer fair, but it was busy and people were very enthusiastic about us, even asking if we had CDs of our music and such like 😀
we did 3 sets, two lots of stand alone dances and the kings me story 🙂
I can safely say, fun was had by all 🙂
woohoo Sarah returned from holiday and I managed to get myself there…it was an excellent class 🙂 My injured arm only stopped me doing one thing, which involved sitting leaning back propped on your arms which is the extreme end of the range of movement in the direction that my arm was hurt so I wasn’t surprised that it hurt!
however, I was so pleased to be back at Pilates 😀 It is exactly the right exercise to do on a Sunday 😀
