Went for a run instead of gym this morning and I am struggling to stay awake now :sleeping:

Tonight, I will do:

  • HIIT then running club
  • Gym then running club
  • HIIT then sauna
  • Gym then sauna
  • HIIT then gym (LOL no)
  • HIIT then sauna then running club (not really feasible, timings-wise)

I’m still quite unfit and weak though :cry:

I’m all for the process not the results :woman_in_lotus_position:

Ran again tonight. Stepped up to 2 × 10 min run 2 x2 min walk 5 min run. Cover 4.7km.

Have been slacking on the core stuff as ive been in the office more recently and I tend to do that stuff at lunchtime.

The correct answer was “Just running”. Should probably have made it an option tbf

Didn’t do my stretches before the gym today and I’ve hurt my dodgy shoulder. Was sore when I stupidly forced it back to hold the barbell when I was doing squats. What an idiot.

@paidinfull:

  • still can’t touch their toes
  • probably can, but this phrasing is a bit suspect
  • obviously can touch their toes

160Kg, though!?!

I don’t even understand how the human body can do this, well done
