This was my first session back at the gym with Richard Kerrigan for a while so I knew it would be tough, but given I am doing the 10k run this coming Sunday at Hopetoun House - I am running with Elspeth Finlay, Fiona Lang, Beverley Hope and Jamie McHale and my chosen charity is is the Bobby Moore fund for Cancer Research UK - I needed to do it.
If you would like to sponsor me, however small an amount I would very much appreciate it and you can do so HERE.
So, back to today's gym session - so Richard concentrated on various exercises that would help me on Sunday.
I did my usual stretches and warm up on the bike, just 4k today then into the evil things with Richard including actual
Press ups - 3 seconds down and 1 second up, with my legs crossed and using a step.
Then the large exercise ball leaning right back on it and doing stomach crunches - that bloody hurt, but...as they say, no pain, no gain.
Exercise bike - keeping up over 90 RPM for 45 seconds and then 70 RPM for 30 seconds, another 10 minute session.
Plus a couple of others which involved squatting.
My thighs ache so much but looking forward to a run on Thursday as spending most of tomorrow on a train!
