Had a few days off, with motivation at an all time low. Was nice to have a bit of a social life for a few days, but back on it now. I won’t get to do a proper race until May now given the seat racing results, but I still plan on being fit for the Summer season. Also, my weight has crept up and I was 97.4kg on the 22nd. There is no denying it, I have got a bit fat, so I am now monitoring my diet much more, creating better habits and looking to shed 10kg.
11km outing in the coxless 4 with 20 x 500m bursts. Really tough session.
Weights Circuit, 3 rounds:
1st Station: 40kg: Deadlift x 6, Barbell Row x 6, Clean & Press x 6, Squat x 6
2nd Station: Bench Press 40kg x 15, DB Press 12.5kg x 15
3rd Station: DB Curls 12kg x 21 Lat Raises 8kg x 15
4th Station: Skullcrushers 12kg x 15 Close Grip Bench Press 15kg x 15
Odd choice of exercises for rowing, but still a solid mornings work.
11km outing in the coxless 4 with 2 x 1.6km pieces
7.5km outing in the coxless 4. Not a great 2nd outing to be honest.
3.8km run in about 17 minutes. Pretty slow, but running is something I am going to slowly bring in to help cut weight and boost aerobic fitness.
20 minute row on erg at 1:56.3 split r20. Was meant to be 3 lots of these, but just wasn’t feeling it.
15 minutes on the watt bike at 202 watts per hour.
Really bad night’s sleep the last 2 nights didn’t help, but still need to do better than that. Incomplete sessions when not ill or injured s unacceptable!
In more positive news, I was down to 96.2kg on the scales today. I know this can fluctuate a bit so I will not obsess too much short term, but it was nice to see better food prep show early results. I will try and weigh myself weekly to track this.
