6am: PT – arms

6am: PT arms

Chest press – barbell
Lat pull down
Shoulder press – barbell
Chest press – standing/machine
Push ups
Seated Row (wide grip)
Assisted Dips
Assisted Chin ups (reverse grip)

+ I did my first run since my shin hernia in March.

I did 1km on the treadmill at 8.6 – 9.2 speed.

The lump in my shin still came out after the run.

I don’t really know what I’m meant do – do I continue to run on it, but take it easy/slow?

Was the lump always there and I never noticed it?

Aside from that, the PT was on me about my nutrition. He’s really against me eating pasta for dinner which is really funny as when you’re a runner, pasta is the pre-run dinner of choice!

It’s hard to do what the PT wants me to do, when I don’t really believe in it. (I don’t think carbs are evil).

No doubt I would lose weight if I did exactly what he’s telling me to do, but I’d also be miserable!

4 out of 5 ain’t bad

Friday 29th June 2012

Today I did 6.30am PT. I did TRX and it was super hard.

I did:
Single leg squats
Chest press
Leg abductors
Hamstring curl
Bicep curl
+ circuit of all exercises combined, 45 secs each, no rest between exercises.

I was at failure point many times during this session. I had that ‘I can’t do this’ feeling, but that’s why I pay a trainer to push me beyond what I would go myself! I have never felt my shoulders burning like they were today. And I was sweating like a mofo.

whoops I did it again…

…hit the snooze button, that is.

Bugger. So this week it’s going to be 4 out of 5 for this week, cos I missed this morning’s Pump class.

The alarm went off and sleep won over Pump! Lol!

No matter, it’s still an improvement; last week I did 3 days, this week I did 4 days… So that means next week is my week!!!

6am: RPM (3 for 3)

Wed 27 June 2012

7 degrees when I left the house this morning at 5.45am.

Do you think this deterred any of the Wed morning RPM class? No, it was a full house. Jen’s classes are always a full house. And it was her last class for 3 weeks cos she’s going on hols, so I think a lot of people were getting their fix before she leaves.

Good class, hard work. Lots of gritting teeth/closed eyes action!


I’m doing good this week – 3 for 3 so far!

However… Not happy when I weighed myself at the gym and I’m heavier than last week!! Wtf!


I lost my gym swipey. I only noticed when I tried to get in this morning. I think Ieft it in the locker yesterday. No matter, the just issued me a new one.
