Week 4 Day 1

Tonight I can hardly keep my eyes open as I write this. I'm just so tired. This morning I rose at 5.30am so that I could prepare everything for work and pack all my different bags and food.

Gym session:
Warm up on treadmill - 8mins
Single Arm DB Row - 3 x 15 (17.6lb)
Chest bench press - 3 x 15 (17.6lb)
Body Squat against Swiss Ball with 10lb weights - 2 x 20
DB Static Lunge - 2 x 15 (5kg)
DB Side Lateral Raise - 3 x 15 (10lb)
DB Biceps Curl - 2 x 15 (10lb)
Triceps Cable pushdown - 2 x 15 (25kg)
Abs - 3 x 15 crunches; 3 x 15 reverse crunches

After work I drove to Parliament House for speedygeoff's session at 5.30pm

2 x warm up loops of PH in opposite directions
long loop in front of PH - fast on the uphill between the flags
gentle at the ends
moderate pace on the downhill
5 x repeats but I managed 4 repeats
warm down loop of PH

Total distance: 9km
Calories: 529

It was jolly cold with a definite need for long sleeves and gloves, especially in the warm-up. Great to see CJ there tonight.


  1. It sounds like it is really cold in Canberra at the moment. I don't think I could even get out of bed in that temperature so I have great admiration for you people down there getting up at 5.30!

  2. I enjoyed it even though I froze my butt off! Though compared to this morning it was positively balmy last night (or 'barmy'!)
