Well I’m planning on buying a bike and running and riding outside so the gym past the swimming may not be seeing me for a bit or well for the weights.
This then raises the question at least for me about crossfit. I am very interested but then I’m very interested in P90X but even if you can do them at a beginner level I don’t want that I wanna nail them.
Well we’ll see I’ve downloaded runkeeper on my phone and gone on the site but how it works I’m at a bit of a loss. But just general fitness and strength and triathlons and everything.
Really very very tempted by crossfit though 20 months ago
Well I think the title kind of gives it all away really.
1km 35min 15 seconds
I’m thinking/ I am going to tomorrow. Buy a bike.
I joined a challenge and you need to cycle and run OUTSIDE! I’m so nervous as although I like the idea of doing it outside I’m just like cycle in the gym – no cars no anything like that, run in the gym no cars no people looking.
Do it outside – I don’t like anywhere nice to run and cycle if you know what I mean so I’m just like wtf but it’s part of the challenge so swim and cycle and run the furthest so.
But bikes cost a shit tonne! I had no idea that they cost soooo much. Unless I’m looking at a shop that charges a fortune but yea wow like £500! And I’d need kit like lights and a helmet and all that stuff. But I have to do it now. 20 months ago
Well I did go to the gym today. And yet any semblance of fitness have gone very much far away.
But tomorrow is another day, I’ll try to get back on the horse as it were, a mile to start and then to whatever workout I pick to do.
Maybe I need to almost take a step back, but I do like challenges. 20 months ago
Just swum another 1k nothing else. Time was 42min 10sec
I was going to bike and run but frankly I just didn’t want to which annoyed me. If I know the time is just going to be awful then I just lose interest almost if I know it’s just too much. But then why not do a little less? 20 months ago
So with my day off beginning:
1k swim – 53min 14sec
lol can you guess I didn’t do the 40lengths in one go. Fingers crossed this can improve as it’s a massive chunk. This was however the time from me putting my bag in the locker and everything so a little time can be shave off just from that but a lot of stopping and going slow with other people in the pool.
10k cycle – 19min
that’s about average I think for me. But not the best overall. Once I was out of the water I didn’t feel tired really at all.
2.5k run – 19min 23sec
a lot more of walking. I already ‘run’ so slow as I can’t keep up the speed so I know its not worth it.
As always it’s the swim and the run to improve. 20 months ago
1. Stratford tri: 13th May – 200m or 400m swim, 23k cycle, 2.5k or 5k run.
If I’m gonna do this thing with the triathlons this is the first. I’m still looking at crossfit though.
But yea tomorrow I’ll actually swim. I’m nervous. 20 months ago
So I went to the gym today. Just a 2k ‘run’ 5k cycle 2k ‘run’ and 2k cross trainer thing with a little weights stuff in the middle
An odd one – my mile thing is going no where. Just need to keep on.
I do enjoy challenges though so that’s going to be good. Plus I’ve been pointed into the direction of crossfit and it’s something I’m not just looking at I’m looking at seriously.
I have a habit of just jumping into stuff so lets jump in. But not right now :P 20 months ago
So I did go to the gym yesterday just did a mile but only in 10.45
today in 10.06 but its just not steady.
Tomorrow it’s the gym again after work – but I may go back to my more interval type stuff on the treadmill.
But it’s swimming during the week as well as I’m off this needs to improve and I’ve just googled crossfit. 20 months ago
Three days – shameful, it’s only been today by real choice if you know what I mean. So it’s off to the gym tomorrow.
Interval stuff is best so I’m going back to that but I really rather want to do longer steadier stuff but it’s wrong.
Maybe just do a mile then see what happens. 20 months ago
Okay this is today:
5k – 38.35 with 211m of climb
Very little weights – I was bored:
just one set of clean and press and some lat pulldowns for the ladies. 21 months ago
