I'm sick...

and I'm injured.

I've been doing one legged squats partly because I found the 100 squat challenge really easy, and anyway, who has time to do 100 squats?  So I've been doing 40 squats each leg and either it's showing up some kind of weakness in my left leg or I'm pulling some muscle when I do it but it hurts.

Not only that but I seem to have picked up a cold somewhere.  So woh. Woh is me.

On the plus side I've been doing actually quite well on my challenge.  I am managing (for the most part) several strength exercizes each day.  In the interests of full disclosure I did miss a day of squats as I wanted to rest my sore leg which seems to have done the trick.  We should also get a delivery on tuesday of some units which will make the back room more hospitable to turbo train in.

I don't want to jinx anything...

but I managed to get off my little bot-bot both today and yesterday.  I shan't call it a roll until tomorrow.  I've also started a 30 day squat challenge (I managed 50 today) and a press-up challenge (on my knees at the moment, cos I'm so frigging weak, damn you cycling damn you.)

Without stating the obvious, it is the starting a keeping these things up which is key.  But rather unfortunately I' aways week so I don't really know how that is going to fair really.  I've begun taking my computer with me everywhere now so that'll be difficult.  I can ofcourse just go for a run both days but we'll see.  Hrmm.

I'm a terrible seamstress...

I was going to put sewer.  Which is right: I am a terrible sewer, I smell quite nice.  But not what I'm trying to describe.  The point I want to make (but in three lines have not) is that the only thing worse than my sewing is my reliability as a blogger. None the less I'm here now.

I did do 'fitness' both yesterday and today.  I was even on the turbo trainer to today, though I have to say I prefer the skipping for warming up.  6 minutes on the bike doesn't really seem worth it.  I have also decided to cut down a little on the whole body weight programe.  I'll still do it every day but there is no way in hell I'm going to be able to do it as wrote.  I think it's for folks who already have some sort of weight training experience and just can't get to the gym.  I on the otherhand have no weight training experience and am weaker than a very weak thing.  I've also taken a rather rotund picture of myself to see if there is any difference by Christmas over what I look like a la pintrest/instagram  thought it shall appear neither of those places and might not even need to appear here.

So, onwards etc.

Did I get all my ducks in a row on Friday?


Did I do anything yesterday?


Did I do my Bodyweight thing since Thursday?


Am I still in pain?


Right, Garry Garmin is on charge and Reset #Fitnesschallenge is in place.  Half an hour of exercise a day.  I'll set up the turbo trainer and switch between that and the bodyweight course because there is no way in hell I'm going to manage every day doing that, for the first couple of weeks at least.  

May god help us all.

I have Of Course Signed up For Etape Caledonia 2015...


The gids shall be venturing out with me, but my lack of exercise fits in with my lack of posts and any discussion about that massive trip I had.  I have also (shocker) put on a STONE.  I'm 11 stone people,  (5ft) and the weird thing is I don't 'look' any fatter.  I've only done a little running and hardly any cycling so I'm fairly sure it's not muscle.

The good news is I've found my chest strap for my garmin.  The bad news is I don't even know if that works anymore.  More good news is that I started a body weight programe, (much like insanity, but also nothing like insanity), the bad news is after starting it yesterday I'm struggling to raise my hands over my head.

In more bad news I'm supposed to do a bit today.  The good news is I'm really not going to.

Anyway. I think I have to have a go at another challenge.  I'm going to get my ducks in a row today then start tomorrow I think.

1.  Do some form of exercise every day.  I'm going to be fairly light on this one.  I'll aim to do the programme but it's a weights based programme and I've not done any weights since ever.

2. Post about it.

3.  I've not done a turbo session in quite a while so I'll get that set up.  Garry Garmin and all, and do my warm up on that.

I'll wear the garmin and post my results.
