Day 99: Tuesdays are getting better

Do you remember the time I knew a girl from mars…

Ok…that wasn’t what I meant to say, but I can’t start a sentence “Do you remember…” without saying that afterwards. I can make it relevant though I promise.

Tuesday is named for Tyr Norse God of war, Tyrsday became Tuesday. In the Roman pantheon the god of war was Mars…therefor Girl from Mars is an excellent song for a Tuesday! Actually it is an excellent song for any day so here it is:

My Tuesday, however contained no war. It contained one gym trip for a  PT session, so that was good for a start. After the obligatory warm up I got to do sled pushes (no pulls just pushes yeay!) in a superset with single dumbbell farmers carries. Using a dumbbell on only one side held engage the core, just in case you were wondering 😀

we took the rope off…no pulling yeay!

This was followed by another superset containing single arm cable rows and straight arm cable pulldowns. Straight arm cable anythings are harder then you might think!

This was all followed by rowing sprints, sprints of 15s and 45s although I maintain that 45s is not really a sprint. I grumbled a bit, but at least it wasn’t a treadmill 😀

not a bad way to start a tuesday really 🙂

Then came lunchtime. Then came running! Yes, more running. It was a reasonably nice lunchtime and I was feeling optimistic so I put on my shiny new shoes and headed out of the door 🙂

It was not a bad run all in all! I had a lot more continuous running at the start and much shorter walk breaks later… I feel like I am improving slowly but surely 😁😁

Day 99 done 😁

    Oooh I LOVE this song!! I feel all young and sprightly again, now. Very good news that no wars broke out, but as a warrior goddess you would be more than capable of sorting them out. Now then – all this one-armed stuff. Will you end up with one massive Popeye arm and one skinny one? Just wondering 😀

    Hang on, ladies, I can’t be dealing with all this flaunting. I might need a glass of something to help me cope.

    But improvement, on the other hand, is great!
