The final few

And now it’s back to the grind…

I was supposed to have a yoga class at home on Tuesday morning at 9am. By 9.15 there was no sign of my teacher so I texted to ask if she was on her way or parking? She called me a minute later, very apologetic, but she’d forgotten I was back. She said she could come to me by 9.40 but I had to be somewhere at 11am and it just wasn’t going to work. So she said she’d come on Thursday.

I texted my potential new trainer on Tuesday afternoon but didn’t hear back from him until Wednesday morning. He came recommended by a friend and Trevor knows him too, so that’s something.

I had a session with Trevor on Wednesday morning. It was really nice to see him and catch up (and exercise, of course)… I started with a 10-minute warmup on the bike and then moved on to the treadmill. I told him I’d done hardly anything in the two months I was away but he didn’t really go easy on me. I did 14 minutes on the treadmill:

  • 2 min x 5.5 km/h (no incline)
  • 2 min x 5.5 km/h (6% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (8% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (10% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (12% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (6% incline)
  • 1 min x 7 km/h (6% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (6% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (8% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (10% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (12% incline)
  • 1 min x 5.5 km/h (no incline)

And then we moved on to boxing intervals:

  • Squats x 30 s
  • Sparring x 1 min
  • Rest x 30 s
  • Combined squats/side leg raise x 30 s
  • Sparring x 1 min
  • Rest x 30 s
  • Bench squats x 30 s
  • Sparring x 1 min
  • Rest x 30 s
  • Treadmill x 30 s
  • Sparring x 1 min
  • Rest x 30 s
  • Mountain climbers x 30 s
  • Sparring x 1 min
  • Rest

Oh god, I was exhausted. I had some water and did the following:

  • Leg press x 3 sets of 15
  • Abductor machine x 3 sets of 15
  • Lateral pulldown x 3 sets of 15

I did a few stretches after that and was done for the day. As I walked home, I knew I wouldn’t be able to walk the next day! I was right – my legs were sore until Sunday when I went back to the gym.

I was supposed to have a yoga class on Thursday but we had to take my dad to hospital on Wednesday night and I didn’t know how long we would be there so I cancelled the class. And I didn’t work out again during the week.

Low point of the week? Only exercising once.

High point of the week? I’ve been trying to eat better this week and have cut out bread from my diet.

Weight loss? I’d lost about 1 kg by Wednesday but had put it all on again over the weekend. I wasn’t out and I didn’t have anything to drink – but I think it was our Chinese takeaway!
