Saturday Training (TRX Session 7...but taking it easy)

As I type, its just gone 11.30pm on Saturday evening.  Off to bed in a mo, excited but terrified that I'm running in my first ever competitive race since the Bexley Grammar senior cross country competition (back in 1994) for the Plums at Knowle Park in the Kent Fitness League.  

God help me.  Should be fine though.  Alarm is set for 7am so give me an hour to sort myself out before I have to head down to Bexleyheath Sports Club to pick up a lift.

Anyhow, in preparation, I took the sensible option to take it relatively easy this week.  I've done no weights on my legs and I've cut back the distance this week in an attempt to be sort of fresh tomorrow morning.

I did vow to go to the Gym today though.  The plan was to work the upper body and abs/core but go very easy on the legs.

Warm Up

1km Treadmill (5:22; 8:42 min/mile) (slowest warm up ever, average HR = 135bpm!)

TRX

Crucifix (3sets x 10reps)
Shoulder Press (3sets x 10reps)
One Armed Press Ups (5sets x 10reps)
Bicep Curl (3sets x 10reps)
Tricep Curl (3sets x 10reps)

Abs

10 sets (10 SB Sit Ups + 10 SB Sit Twists)
 
No leg weights.
 
Cool down
 
1km Treadmill (5:37; 9:07 min/mile) - again slow, average HR = 139bpm!
 
Was lucky to see Chandra on his first shift of eight consecutive days today, the poor sod, but had a good catch up with him despite seeing him on my last trip to the Gym on Wednesday.
 
The rest of the day, I've taken really easy.  Watched some football, studied Rachel Riley's curves on Strictly and listened intently to the love night on X Factor.  Quick question, did they miscount the votes?  How on earth did the west country girl get through the flash vote?  Stop it JB, you're a man, you shouldnt even be talking X Factor.
 
Some other good news.  My 6/6 "Heinz" and 2/3 of my Trixie came in, so happy times.
 
Right, off to bed.  Bring on the cross country!
