Day 7 – Monday

Working from home again today, so some flexibility with training and eating.

Around midday I cycled to my local gym – it’s only 2.5 kms each way, and still my butt hurt from the big ride yesterday. At the gym, I did some rows, bench presses and lat pull-downs. I’m still only using 30kg for both rows and bench – I my record is 42.5kg, and I benched 40kg routinely for months. I should put the weight up a bit next time. I do the lat pull-downs to help with my pull-ups (or lack thereof).

This evening I went for a 7.2km run/walk. It took 48 minutes. I pretty much ran while I was comfortable and whenever my heart rate got to 178-180, I walked for a while to slow it down to around 170 and then ran again. The aim is to be able to maintain a steady run for this distance like I could do before I got sick last year.

I ate a banana, yoghurt smoothie and a coffee for breakfast, a roast lamb on sourdough sandwich for lunch and a couple of kangaroo sausages on sourdough for dinner because I couldn’t be bothered cooking. I had just one handful from the never ending jar of M&Ms today.
