Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Welcome back, Floydy! I also enjoyed your photos and was most pleased that you and Mrs. Floydy had a pleasant break from it all. Rainy days on holidays remind us why we want to get away in the first place - to relax.

Relaxing is not what you did on that workout though! Well done on jumping right back into the fire. Sometimes I think we can't wait to have that first session at home for fear of not doing it at all. I ran like a fiend after the NC trip for fear that the gods of laziness and sloth might be catching up with me.

What an inviting trail and a gorgeous day, OGF! Sometimes being in the slow lane is good for the soul - and marriage .

We are taking the boat out today for some well-needed sun which means that today's run will surely be on the beach. I like to think that a beach run is a harder workout that the trails and pavement, but we'll see. I shall keep you apprised!

Have a fine afternoon!

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Awful workout yesterday. That chest complaint returned, the one with the dry cough and the slight breathlessness just under the collarbone. As per the first time I had it, my energy just drained away and after 40 minutes I got to the point where nausea was starting to kick in, so I headed home. You have to know when to call it a day, eh!

I got home at around 5pm but was so drained I was asleep in front of the computer by 7pm so I gave up and went to bed. I've had 15 hours of solid sleep and still feel tired, but I'm heading out with my sons for Father's Day lunch. I'm not missing that!!

Good luck everyone and best wishes to all dads and grandads - enjoy your day.

Thanks Lion Queen. I'm starting to perk up now, after the chest complaint started on Thursday, so I hope it actually goes away and doesn't keep coming back. I checked the gym machine app to see how pathetically I did on Saturday and it was a mere 367 calories burnt and just over 15k Kg lifted, which is indeed pathetic. That's about 30% of what I can normally do, sigh. Still, Tuesday beckons so fingers crossed.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Thanks Suzie, much appreciated

Tachyon - Sorry to hear about your recurring chest complaint bud. Persevere and you'll get over it again I'm sure. Just take things easy at the gym - no need to hammer those reps mate.


Sunday 16 June 2019: Legs. 55 mins.

A very boring Father’s Day for me as Mrs. F has been at work and I haven’t seen the kids but never mind. I visited my dad’s grave and tidied things up with new plants and basically chilled out until the thought of an overdue legs outing at the gym played on my mind too much. This was my third workout in three days and it was a struggle to get motivated. But motivated I became and I dragged myself to the gym because there is no way I wanted to do this tomorrow, being back at work on the night.

Puffing and panting throughout I completed the session but it was nothing to shout about.

(All weights in kgs)

Incline press:
Feet low on plate (quads/knees) -
20x150, 18x200,15x250, 8x300
Feet high on plate (hams/glutes) reverse sets –
10x250, 13x200, 14x150
Feet centre of plate –
50x120 half-way high reps

Seated ham curl:
20x40, 20x50, 10x70
25x35

Sled press:
12x150 – pause – 12x150 – pause – 12x150 – pause – 12x150

Calf press:
20x100, 25x120, 22x140
20x100

Lying ham curl:
20x25, 12x32.5, 6x40
12x20

Adductor:
20x50, 21x55, 14x60
20x40

Abductor:
20x50, 21x55, 14x60
20x40

Extensions:
20x40, 18x60, 13x100
15x100 half-way ‘bounce’ reps

I’ve made the decision to keep posting in this section but very little elsewhere from now on, to basically forget about the rest of the forum. For various reasons it holds very little interest and enjoyment for me anymore. I know others are feeling the same.


Thanks for reading.

Tell me about it Tachyon!...
I don't seem to have had a decent run since last year, just when I think I've turned the corner and started to see the old Foxy, I get totally wrecked over a distance I wouldn't have bothered to put on the the running kit just a few years ago....
We must just go with the flow Tachyon and not expect too much, and be thankful that we can still do something.... I'm sure with some rest you'll come back fighting....

Although the time was embarrassing on my eight miler this morning I rather enjoyed it.
The roads were dry and not a sign of the rain that had accompanied me on most of last week's runs. Rabbits and Hares sat at the roadside cheering me on and Crows and Rooks swooped overhead with their squawks of approval....

A lady runner approached me in the opposite direction as I was entering the village on my last mile, she had stopped for a walk and I called out a few words of encouragement "You make it look so easy" she exclaimed, if she only knew how I really felt....
It brings to mind the story of the Swan gliding through the water so serenely and effortlessly, while it paddles for dear life under the water...
