Nice lay in this morning, long enough to watch the start of the London Marathon. Lots of incentive to then get up and go the gym to train. After a small breakfast it was ‘BUZZ’ time and the thought of increasing some more weights/reps on the different exercises. I managed a much better sleep last night simply because I was just too tired to let Neil (the knee) prevent me from going to sleep.
At the gym I went into ‘Own World’ mode -listening to #smoothradio and the sounds of the 80’s/90’s. Must admit though, not many ‘upbeat’ tunes to get in the mood with – no Rocky, Eye of the Tiger etc …. Anyway it didn’t stop me and I did my usual efforts on the Rowing Machine – arms only and beat my time by 19 seconds (about 70m in distances). Then over to the weight machines and the reps increased too. Tend to do 20 reps and 3 sets of the weight, which is hard as I can only use my upper body and ABS. So nearly every exercise is tiring. My session lasted about 90mins before I had to get home to watch the football.
Lunch consisted of a protein shake and a ham salad sandwich, after my pleasant Hot Lobster Bath.
Tonight is a chill time on Claire (the couch) and some TV – on an INSET Day tomorrow so no planning tonight.
Evening meal will be a slow cooked Spicy Chicken, Veg & Sweet Potatoes. May even try to get an early night so that I can watch some TV in bed too.
I wonder if I will be getting a telephone call or a letter from the hospital this week? I hope so.
