I am a bit swamped with work at the moment – meeting this morning, clearing up the back log of paper through lunch and this afternoon – so bear with me on the recap of ups and downs of the Great Eastern Women’s 10K 2010 (GE 10K). This morning Michael and I went through a functional training routine with cables and finished up around 8 am with reverse crunches [I had to leave the place by 9 am because the building management were going to conduct a fire drill exercise].
Supersets of the following with the Freemotion Dual Cable Cross:
a) Combo of alternate squats and lunges
b) Standing back row
c) Low-to-high forward chest
d) Technogym cable standing upper back row
e) DB static lunges
f) Freemotion Dual Cable Cross overhead shoulder press
g) Freemotion Dual Cable Cross wood chop
h) Technogym cable tricep pressdown with iron bar
i) Freemotion Dual Cable Cross bicep curl
Great Eastern Women’s 10K 2010
It was a major PR for me! I came in at 52:38 minutes (chip) – PTL! Overall, it was another well-executed race from the sign up and race pack collection up to the race itself. I do not think there were any aspects I did not enjoy. There was a minor annoyance with a guy who paced one of the girls towards the last 2-3 km; oh come on, she should be able to handle it and the marshals should have removed him a.k.a. Shape Runs. On hindsight, I am glad I ran in the Bikilas – I have been observing that my pace tends to be faster on them than my “regular” trainers (or perhaps I am on the road to progress?).
