But prior to that, what was I up to? This!
–Superhero Workout four times this week. This, two weeks ago, would have been stupid because I wouldn’t have been able to move. This week it was fine. I was still sore of course but I’m getting better at the pacing on this.
I have one rule with Superhero Workout; don’t stop moving. There are some exercises on there that I just straight up cannot do right now or at the very least do quickly and well. So for those I do pushups. It’s still exercise and I’m still moving. Although I did just find a really interesting new kind of burpee that looks both easier to do and just as hard work. I’ll report back on that…
–DDP Yoga Nothing aside from the usual 5-10 minutes minimal workout every night. I’ve not felt bad as a result but I want to get some solid work under my feet with this again this week. Which means a third attempt at getting the app to recognize my established account.
–Zombies Run Couch to 5k went really, really well this week. I’ve been adding 5 seconds onto my running intervals recently and this week I hit 30 seconds.
On a new route. Filled with narrow pavements and the imaginary sound of commuters laughing at the big guy in the IMF hoodie alternately walking and running.
I did it. Not just that but I did 6 intervals instead of 5 and while I was quite ready to be done thank you NOW PLEASE by the end, I still did it and for the first time in a couple of weeks felt like I’d really made progress. I’m desperate to be able to break that 5 minute barrier and getting to the 30 second one was a huge confidence boost. I’ll be here a while but that doesn’t matter.
Know what else doesn’t matter? The Body Image Goblin. Tell it it looks fabulous today and I’ll see you next week,
