THE TRAINING ADDICT STRIKES AGAIN

Monday is my night to use the exercise room now that WH is also training. So even though I'm ahead with my weights sessions, I decided to hop on the exercise bike for extra cardio. I took my book with me and set myself a target of 30mins working at about level 7 to 7.5 / 10. At around the 27 minute mark I was at a really good part of the book so I psuhed on and did an impressive 40 minutes.

I felt so good when I finished that I actually found myself looking forward to my morning sprints today. As I was getting reday to take a shower I threw in a little posing practice and ... what's that I see???....are they really muscles there on my back and shoulders???? I was so excited I was nearly wetting myself :-)

I jazzed up my cardio this morning by doing the following circuit:
2 x 100m sprints/recovery jogs
2 x 50m sprints/50m recovery jogs
12 jump squats
Repeated this 4 times for a total of 19 minutes and then into 6 sets of my GLEs and jog the rest of the way home. 30 minutes of really solid effort (apart from the warm up jog of 3 minutes) at around 8/10.

Hmmm now can I weasel my way into the exercise room tonight? Its normally WH's night but he's having his farewell lunch today and I'm hoping he's just not up to training tonight :-)

Cheers all
