T-Minus 53 till Cycle.
I’ve decided to take a photo every day, because I’m vein like that.
Today is the first day of me getting fitter for my ride and I’ve basically decided to format this blog like this: 1) daily picture and food diary, 2) recording workouts as and when I do them. Hopefully this will help me keep track of what I’m doing in general with my body.
Today I ate: grapes (unknown quantity) salad x 2 (lettuce, cucumber, pizza express house dressing) pasta salad x 1 (100g pasta, lettuce, cucumber, pizza express house dressing) fab x 1 and drank water and maybe 3 cups of Dr Pepper. I really need to cut down on that.
In terms of workout I did a “quick fitness challenge” (a minute jogging on the spot, a minute squats, a minute bicycle crunches, 45 seconds plank, a minute side bends, 25 seconds rest, a minute wall-sit) and am about to go on a “Week 3, Day 1” run of a 14 week Couch-to-10k programme. You’re obviously meant to start at week one but, frankly, I don’t have 14 weeks so I’m going to try and jump-start it.
How was your workout, guys?
EDIT: Did the run and it was surprisingly ok. Found it tougher towards the end and sweated a bit but was definitely manageable. Hopefully will improve throughout the weeks!
