Sore arms!

Yes I started my gym training yesterday - good really, did more running than i thought I could do, and took it very easy on the gym work - or so I thought. My arms have come up very sore this morning! And I must add sit ups to the routine!!!!

Wednesday at CU
stepper - 20 minutes at level 8, "steady" workout, calf OK.
gym - 3 x forward chinups - 3, 3, nearly 3
3 x reverse chinups, 1, 1, approximately 1
6 x 20 hip flexor exercises
run on oval - 20 minutes shuffle, estimate 3k. Left calf is still sore when running. (As is right achilles, but that has been so for thirty years). Lovely warm day for it!

I am hoping to run (or hobble!) 30k this week, 40k next week, etc etc! My masseur was sick on Monday so I didn't get the treatment on the calf I was planning. It's rescheduled for Friday. I have been stretching and icing. (a bit).

Next race? No idea. Probably January. But I am very wary of testing myself on the hard synthetic track first up.


  1. Flashdrake's pseudonym was created by Flashduck. I'm not the least in this instance. ;)

  2. hmmm - it's hard to top a truly creative piece of ingenuity like FlashDuck calling her husband Flashdrake. I thought Aki might have been the genius in this instance. Well, we will all just have to try harder!

    Incidentally the monkey bar results are - Monkey bars 1, speedygeoff nil. I got nowhere. Nowhere at all. I am beaten. Back to the chin bar for more work I fear. And to think that when I was at High School (ABHS) I used to win the full on fights we had wholly swinging on the monkey bars there. Which happens to account for the fast track times I ran then.
