Still going to the gym regularly. I changed my schedule a little so I run every other day. My lifting is 2 days on / 2 days off. That way I get one complete rest day every 4 days. Also, I've added hollow holds and arch holds into my routine. I don't know why I haven't been doing these all along - I need them.
Group 9 What went well: I've been making better times on my runs and my recovery is much quicker. What didn't: I missed a day of running because I was out with some friends all day. I've also been fasting for Ramadan so it's a lot harder to keep going, but I'm doing it. What to improve: On the weekends, I can make better use of my mornings to run so that I don't have to worry about it during the rest of the day when it's really got outside.
Group 9 What went well: Picked back up on Friday after a 1 week break. Workout felt great, and could definitely do with progressing to new moves in some categories. Started practicing freestanding handstands and can hold for a few seconds at least which is great. Going to stick with the wall handstands and keep getting better. Saw some breakdancers today too, and I've never actually appreciated the strength needed to do this until today. What didn't: Missed a week of exercise which sucks. Life got in the way which is an awful excuse, but playing a lot of football, and at a festival all last weekend which left me a shadow of my usual self until Friday. Great festival though. What to improve: Back on the bandwagon from this week onwards. Need to focus on progression and not getting stuck on particular exercises.
