PNS days 13-15

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 11:52 AM

Day 13, Friday, went pretty well. First I went to the gym, and had a reasonable but not spectacular workout. I guess I was conserving my energy for what was about to come. Then I had the standard five kms walk back home, which went far better than last week (I think my ankles are getting stronger). I did it in 1:04, as opposed to 1:10 last week. Picked up Orna at home and we went to the pool together. I planned to do 1km (600m and then 400m), but once I got in the water, I felt great and decided to try for 1km without stopping. I did it, and even had enough energy to go on! For the last 4 pools, I matched pace with Orna, who swims like a fish in water. I think I’ll stick to 1km for the time being, but try for a quicker pace. I also need to start working on my side stroke, since it seems to provide a much better work out.

Day 14, Saturday, was a day of rest. After yesterday’s mili-triathlon, my entire body was sore. I just lazied around, slept a lot, and generally recuperated.

Day 15, Sunday, today: lousy work out in the morning. I wanted to start running after the cross training, but the treadmill machines were all taken. Instead I raised the resistance on the cross training machine to 11, and did 30 minutes (28, to be precise) with a pulse of 150-160. 495 kcals burned, which is a new record. Then I had no strength left for the weights, and had to lower the weight on some of the machines from my usual weight. I think it was a good move in general, because my form while doing weights wasn’t up to standard recently. That’s a sure sign of too much weight, and it’s better to reduce the weight and do the exercise with the right form.

Speaking of weight, I am down 1.8kgs for the last week, which brings me down to a total of 6.4kgs since starting. At this rate, I’ll hit the pretty significant milestone of 10kgs in two weeks!
