Thursday Training (5k Fitness Challenge & Gym Muscle Build Session 22)

Back to the Gym Thursday evening.  Bumped into Chandra as soon as I came through the front door and he said I should go and have a look at this month's 5k on the treadmill as fast as you can...

So, a little warm up of 0.5km...a bit of a stretch then give it the full beans...

Warm Up 
0.5km Treadmil

Fitness Challenge 5k > see here

How is it I can run 5k outside comfortably at a decent pace without blowing up but as soon as I get on a treadmill and try and do it, I get destroyed?!?!

I'll settle for 25:01.  Garmin said 25 dead but will go with what the treadmill said.  Not bad.

When looking back at my Garmin records, it was my fastest ever 5k on the treadmill...

But how does that compare to the other competitors?  Here's the fitness challenge board...

So my 25:01 sits somewhere in the middle.  How the hell someone managed to run 18:35 is astounding.  That would win the local 5k Park Run at Danson Park!!!

Anyway, back on to the rest of the Gym session 


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)


10 sets (10 SB one-footed sit ups + 10 SB Sit Twists)

No leg weights.

Cool Down

0.5km treadmill (was planning on longer but couldnt be arsed in the end lol)
It was a good session and I really was destroyed by the end of it.
