Fitness Update - Introduction23:56:00
3 more days and I'm off!
It's been a busy week, a weird week to say the least. It's definitely had it's ups and downs but now we are finally at the end and I shall be jetting off in just 3 days. I am yet to pack but after my final day at work tomorrow, the suitcases shall be out!
Fitness wise, it's been a weird week too. I started off really well. After last week's fitness fashion post, I felt really determined. I had my trainers at the ready and I went to the gym whenever I could. Sunday came (bare in mind the post went up on Friday) and my gym closed. Typical. It has closed for a refurb. I'll admit that it was getting a bit run down and that the equipment could've done with an update but why now?! Not only that, but I came down with horrific stomach pains on Tuesday which didn't fully go away until yesterday. I'm not sure what it was, possibly food poisoning of some sort. Doesn't life just always get in the way?!
It must sound like I'm constantly making excuses because I'm sure there are other ways I could've exercised but among other things this week, it has been difficult. I don't feel like I've stopped!
I said I was going to write a round up post at the end of each week, which I do think is a bit pointless considering I won't be posting for the next two weeks, but here is what I did this week. I guess this is just a little introduction.
Thursday 26th May
Cross Trainer - 15 minutes as warm up
Treadmill - 1.03km, 51 calories
Leg Press - 32kg, 3 sets of 15 reps with 45 sec rest in between
Leg Curl - 25kg, 3 sets of 15 reps with 45 sec rest in between
Saturday 28th May
Treadmill - 5K!!!
(This really was the main reason I choose write a little round up post!)
Sunday 29th May
Drop 10 Workout (extra 30 second plank instead of push ups because I have a bad wrist.)
And unfortunately that has been about it! I am still very proud of what I did and it's made me feel better all week! Very proud that I did 5K! I spoke about how difficult it is for me to run because of my asthma in my fitness goals post. So to be able to have actually done 5K shows how much working up to it and keeping fit and hydrated really does work. I was amazed that I didn't feel as exhausted as I thought I would! I wasn't weezing and I didn't constantly feel like I needed as much water as I would usually!
I believe that if I continue to keep up my fitness, I'll be doing 10K's and maybe even half marathons in no time!
I want to make sure I keep fit and healthy when I'm on holiday too but I won't be rushing to the gym every morning. I will be doing a lot of walking and activities like volleyball and basketball so hopefully when I get back it won't be like starting from the beginning again.
When I'm back, it will be full speed ahead! Full training more my obstacle course (and fundraising) and I will be entering other races! Let's do this!
Wish me luck!
