the former, but my (suspected) symptoms were very mild
That’s good. Take it easy as you might find yourself puffing hard. It’s always good having a run or something after you’ve been ill as it gives you a good sense of your recovery and helps ‘blow it out’ (probably not a technical/medical thing)
yeah I’m very lenient on myself as a runner at the best of times, absolutely no chance of me ever overdoing it
Did a 5k run every weekday last week and have done 6k every weekday this week. Not sure how good an idea it as as I definitely struggled from cumulative fatigue/soreness today
Ready for a race up Alpe du Zwift. Particularly proud of the cat tower repurposed as a hydration stand
Completed another week of daily pre-breakfast runs. This morning was the first time without a single break, thanks to the lack of traffic in the backstreets of Islington.
Increasing the distance again tomorrow.
just did a pretty good weighted backpack workout, in addition to the bodyweight stuff I usually do. chest press, rows, ‘kettlebell’ swing, overhead press, lunges. not as comfortable as using proper equipment but still
I forked out for a paid HIIT timer app. Such a simple thing but really makes a difference not having to fart about with the timer on my phone or watch.
got a pull up bar in my kitchen now
will let you all touch my arms at the next meet i come to if you like
Do these need to be screwed into the wall? How secure are they?
doesn’t need to be screwed in, has a counterweight thing and can apparently hold up to 120kg. didn’t really trust it at first but feels pretty strong
Funny looking out my window and seeing loads of people on my street doing home workouts in their back gardens. Some guy a few doors down has a bench and barbell with all the plates and that. Pretty jels.
Can I draw a cat on your arm please?
Thanks! Can’t wait
Something to really look forward to.
One of the flats I look out to (see daily threads) has a roof terrace. They’ve installed a rowing machine and a full-size boxing punch bag.
I hope they’re a safe distance apart. once at the gym we were doing a rowing relay race and a guy slipped off the back of the rower into a boxing bag. While he was climbing back on the bag swung back and knocked him off the rowing machine a second time! It was very funny.
I miss the gym
I miss the gym so much . I miss flipping the giant tyre over and over and making a racket.
