Over 6 hours exercise!

February 28, 2009 at 11:40 am 3 comments

The title says it all, doesn’t it. I managed over 6 hours of exercise last week! I’m not sure how – it didn’t feel like I was working out all the time. It felt quite doable actually. Check out last weeks score sheet from Joe’s Goals.

In fact, I did really well on all my goals, with the exception of going to bed early, and even that’s not as bad as it looks. At least one night, I was in bed by 11.30, and a couple of days I got home from work and went straight to bed, sleeping till 9 or 10pm, getting up for a few hours and then going back to bed. So although not an ideal sleep pattern, I was still getting sufficient sleep overall.

My goals for next week will remain much the same, but I am going to add one more – I’ve got a bit of residual soreness from the weight training programme, so I am going to include at least one bodyrolling session this week. I bought a DVD and ball (for rolling under muscles) kit last year sometime and it is still in the plastic, partly because I am scared it is going to hurt too much. Oh well, no pain no gain, right. So, at least one session, and I’ll write about bodyrolling and self myofascial release after I have given it a go.

    You are doing so good. I feel like a slacker. Under the weather though, literally. Caught hubby’s cold. And it’s rainy with no sun in sight. And I get to have dental work tomorrow, if I’m not too sick.

    But it jazzes me up to see you doing so good! And I am aiming to stay in a decent calorie deficit today, even if I didn’t manage it over the weekend!

    As for that self myofascial release… I’ve given it one try so far. Painful. Very. Hope it goes better for you. I do plan to try again, ‘cuz it is probably just the sort of thing that is good for me, but I gotta work up my nerve.

      Hey Cyn,

      Sorry to hear about the cold, and the dental work! You know the neck up/neck down rule? If you’re sick from the neck up, and otherwise feel OK, and feel like moving a bit, OK to do a workout. If you’re sick from the neck down, take to your bed and keep your fluids up. However, if you’re sick from the neck up and can’t be a***d to work out, then don’t. My kinda rule.

      Yes, SMR with a foam roller was excruciating, so I was very nervous about the body rolling, but it was quite different – barely felt a thing, and it was really effective! I haven’t done the whole body yet (just hams, twice, back and abdomen – the last was a bit uncomfortable, but even that was not too bad), so will write a post when I have finished all the workouts on the DVD.

      By the way, if you have a cold, your energy requirements will be a bit higher than normal – your body needs extra energy to fight off the virus. Don’t beat yourself up if you want a bit more food. Listen to your bod.

    Looking forward to your body rolling report! I didn’t know there was any other way to do it than the foam roller!

    I’m trying to keep fluids up. When my throat gets sore and inflamed like this it is harder to swallow.
