Reboot day 38: Adapting to a new routine, and other stories

Day 38 was Wednesday…
Wednesday started extremely early!
Wednesday normally starts early because I have for the last year or so been going to the gym at 7am with my friend Sarah.
This Wednesday due to Sarah having to teach an earlier class, we had to adapt this to start at the gym at 6:30 😱
Remember I am not a morning bear!! This change was hard work!! This change definitely needed coffee to make it happen!
Considering all that, we actually ended up with a pretty decent workout 🙂 we did supersets with rows / shoulder presses and bench press / reverse fly. Then after Sarah left to teach people energetic things I did heavy squats interspersed with bodyweight full depth squat practice to attempt to improve my mobility. To top it all off I did some 160kg leg presses 😃

And that was Wednesday morning…
Wednesday was, of course, dancing practice… which was awesome and a lot of dancing happened… we are learning a brand new dance which is always challenging but fun! (I totally forgot to take pictures)
Day 38 done!

Day 39 was Thursday…
and Thursday involved walking…quite a lot of walking and some running training…
The walking was because I dropped my car off for service at a place that is 35mins walk from work then walked to work…and of course walked back at the other end of the day to pick it up 🙂 this is a pretty awesome way to get steps and extra exercise in 🙂
After picking my car up, I went straight out for a run with my awesome friend Susie and the lovely Graham who longtime readers will possibly remember from circuit training classes way back when I started all of this 🙂

Running was actually pretty awesome! Hard work, but I believe the only way to improve at these things is to work hard and push yourself.
Or…in this case persuade a lovely friend to push you…
we somehow managed to double the length of the running intervals and half the walk intervals since last week… this happened mainly because Susie said I had no choice and I promised to be positive!

All in all pretty good…especially for a Thursday!!

Day 40 was Friday…
Friday involved an early morning gym session… but not as early as Wednesday!
We somehow managed to be a little more awake and decided for some reason that doing two different supersets that both involved sled pushes and pulls would be a good idea!
Actually it was awesome!
We did this interspersed with deficit deadlifts and with bench press…
to be quite honest I am never going to complain too hard about a workout that involves deadlifts 😀

I love these leggings 😀 😀

Day 40 done!

Day 41, Saturday (today…yeay)

You may have noticed that this week there has been a suspicious lack of yoga…
well this morning I decided that I missed it and needed to do some.
I chose Yoga for Tired Legs…because I definitely had tired kegs!
It is excellent and something I need to do more often!
I did let's something today too…
Yoga is extremely hard to do when a cat comes and sits on your tummy!!

Hehe silly Mia puss!!!

Day 41 done 😀
