    Thursday :

    30min PT, omg I hated her after this. Was supposed to have been 400m runs interspersed with 50 squat jumps, 50 press ups and 50 sit ups, but ended up being more like 1/2 mile runs. And not at my pace, oh no, she pushed me right out of my comfort zone to run at a pace of her choosing.

    Then I went to the gym and had my first real leg workout in ages. Now I'm not training for a race I can do proper leg burners and I concentrated on the bum and hips, although did also do work for the rest of the legs. Was all about endurance and the burn rather than heavy weights, so little 20 no rest between sets.

    Started with deep (bum to floor) squats
    5 each of 20/22.5/25/27.5/30/32.5/35/37.5kg

    Then first superset using the 10kg bar (no rest between sets)
    3x10 straight leg deadlifts/sumo squats/lunges (each leg)

    Followed by
    3x1min wall sit (30sec rest between sits)

    Then the next superset (again no rest)

    3x10 donkey kicks/fire hydrants/leg extensions. Moving immediately from one leg to the other no rest.

    3rd superset
    3x10 hip circle/leg raise/reverse hip circle. Again no rest plus 10 glute bridges during each transition.

    Then did some single leg and balancing work.

    3x10 curtsey squat with a leg raise (holding raise for count of 5) followed by
    3x10 single leg deadlift with knee raise (holding raise for count of 5)

    Finished the work section off with 10min on the spin bike, 20sec standing sprints/40sec active rest.

    Then had a deep stretch.

    20min piyo define upper body

    1.5mile run taking in my challenge hill

    1hr class - was a mash up, tabata meets barbell meets abs

    Warm up:
    5 min on helix lateral machine

    StrongLifts workout B:
    5x5 squats
    5x5 overhead press
    1x5 deadlift

    Cool down/isolation:
    30 sec each foot balancing on bosu ball
    15 min stationary bike

    Didn't do as many workouts as I usually do today. Honestly coming off of 6 days in a row at the gym -- my body is telling me I need a day off, which will be tomorrow, though my partner and I will be going to a fall corn maze once I get off of work, so it'll be active recovery.

    Leg day and 5 mile run. Have a great day!

    1hr with trainer, she said I was gonna hate her the last few days and I have. Combination of on the minute every minute burpees (starting from 1 up to 20) and trx exercises (squats with knee raise/press/shoulder press/side lunge hop/tricep extensions/Arnold press/side bends/frogger hops). Then a finisher of 5 rounds 10 squat jumps/10 high knees. Ended up doing 210 burpees!!!

    5k run, taking in my challenge hill plus a couple more hills. The DOMS from yesterday had kicked in big style and it was all I could do to keep moving.

    Total Body Conditioning- almost back to form in the upper body exercises now. And finding the core sections are steadily getting easier (or they would be if someone didnt add extra twists for me like changing position of my arms in back extensions and leg raises).

    2 rounds of beachbody on demand piyo.
    Core - was dreading this and didnt think I'd get through it but I did. I really am crediting the 2 weeks of daily piyo I've done so far for the improvements in my core strength.

    Stretch and flow - needed a.good stretch and love the flow rounds for that.

    60 minutes of moderately easy cardio today. 30 minutes on the Indoor Rower, then 30 minutes on the Air Bike. That white ball of fluff is my son's dog, Floyd, we're watching for a few months. He was at the foot of the AirBike with the wind in his hair!

    I haven't quite figured out how to force myself to go to the weight room when it's not for my class yet and I had zero time to do the 90 min TrainerRoad session I had planned. Rest day for me, but tomorrow is going to be anything but.

    Usual stretch, cardio warm-up, upper body workout (chest, upper back, lower back, arms, abs) one hour+ of weight training, progressed to higher weights with kettle bells also, and PT exercises with BFR band to failure.

    More of a rest day today- but had to burn some calories so did some vigorous walking!

    Well "only" 32 km on my bike 1036 kcal. Actually not bad at all :)

  • aokoyeaokoye Posts: 3,126Member Member Posts: 3,126Member Member
    12km in my quad line up. Did a 6km club head race and got second out of three of the quads. We only got waked once which is nice (and it was less awful than I thought it'd be).

    3 runs today.

    Started with parkrun. (The Castle)

    Then another 3.1miles in the form of the elephant social run. Extra proud of this, I'm autistic and dont run with people. I had every intention of wearing my earphones and running by myself (even though it was a social run). Ended up running the whole thing with someone, no music, and I was chatting.


    Final run was the 2 mile loop that takes in my challenge hill which i did in the dark.

    Wouldnt normally run three times in a day, but it was a good experience and gave me an idea of where i am when it comes to training for the 24hr relay in May

    I did 52 minutes of WERQ (dance fitness). So much fun! I'm able to keep an average heart rate of 168 during class and I am a sweaty mess when we're done.

    Rest day due to AM weather yesterday (went to the local zoo in the afternoon, so more walking than I usually do, but super casual).

    Back on the river rowing the double again this AM, down in the 30s F first thing, but no frost to make the dock slippery, plus sun when the trees didn't block it, and negligible wind.

    Fall colors just getting started, a bright tree or small group here and there, still mostly green and leafy. We're running out of season, though . . . . :cry:
