Daily updated training info + stuff #AKtraining

10 March 2017

Well been away for a month of two on the road working and so training’s been put to one side, replaced by climbing and walking (Vanessa has some crazy idea of walking the Bob Graham on some non stop epic of mini naps during our honeymoon!). But home again I’m about to do another block (a month), so I’ll be adding stuff here again.

It’s funny how different everything seems going to gym today, it light for starters and not baltic and windy (Bray is one of the coldest places I’ve ever lived). Paid the bald headed man another 99 days gym membership for €99 and felt at home.

Seeing as I’ve been away I thought I start easy (pre post pre training) and did 10km on the runner, but ended up doing it in 54.40, which felt good, by which I mean it felt fucking painful, the last 500 metres making me feel like I was trying to outrun a Black Hole! After that did a bunch of exercises, the aim five exercises with five sets of five on each, but I ended up running out of time.

The Day's Training

  • 10km run = 54.40
  • Bench 60kg 5x5
  • Low Squat 40kg 5x5
  • Military Press 40kg 5x5
  • Pull down machine 80kg 5x5

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

Notes

Turned out a bit better than expected, but really felt it on the run, so it’ll be interesting to see if anything’s sore tomorrow.

It’s good to be back.

See you Monday.
