I went for another recovery jog on Saturday morning before Richard’s class. As my foot felt strong and secure, I decided to jog at a faster pace and completed two laps at 7min/km. However, my big toe/bunion gave me some problems and the foot was a bit swollen over the weekend – it is probably because I am still hesitant about putting my toes down and using the “wrong” muscles. Mr Soon gave my foot a look over yesterday and after some massage, it seems to be back to normal. It is a long shot but I’m hoping to bring the pace down to 6min/km for the Adidas Sundown next weekend – being mindful that it’s not completely healed.
Michael had forewarned me about today’s toughie last Friday and I made sure I was nicely tucked in bed by 10 pm last night! This morning’s menu was low reps, maximum load.
a) Smith machine incline chest pres
b) DB bench chest press
c) Single arm DB chest pullover on bench
d) Push ups with toes raised on bench
e) Smith machine squats
f) DB + BW squats
g) Back bend over roll
h) Smith machine shoulder overhead press
i) BB bicep curl
j) Cable rope tricep pressdown + opening
k) Ab crunches on stability ball with legs higher on wall mirror
All in, a good tough workout to start the week.
