Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

15 March 2017

Sore joint seemed to work ok today after some rubbing to make tight spot better, so got on the tread mill and did 10km. Mixed up 10kph and 12kph but still early days on the running. Vanessa did a really knackering run on Sunday with 500 metres of ascent and watching someone running like that is always inpiring… but I don’t think I’ll ever make a runner!
After running I did a load more bench presses then some strict military presses (I use the term strict but what I mean is I have to raise and lower the bar from the shoulder without being dynamic). Finished off with some deadlifts and the plan is to start adding on the weight over the next month, so I’ve added a weight lifting belt for the first time as I’ll be pushing the weights. Not used one before but perhaps due to bad technique I often get a niggly back now and then (although the reason I started weight training was to cope with back problems due to carrying stupidly heavy loads, like a 65kg person on my back all the way down off El Cap, or an 80kg pack for 15kms!).

The Day's Training

  • Run 10km 56min
  • Bench 5x5 75kg
  • Military Press 5x5 45kg
  • Deadlift 5x5 115kg

Note:These numbers don't include warm up, which tend to be done at 25%, 50% and 75% of final weigh.

Notes

Not a bad session, but can feel myself - as usual - not wanting to do the cardio but just get onto the weights, when really I need to do both. Will keep up the 5x5 this week then switch next week to something else.
