Week 04 Day 05 - Thursday 7 July 2016

Steps: 8717

  • Treadlift was good. Remembered to get my new sheet out so workout #3 was done. Had to google a couple of the moves but that was fine and keeps it fresh. Doing the interval times as prescribed now, so definitely getting fitter.
  • Walked for nearly an hour with Harry. He was walking really well on the lead, played two games of fetch even though there were other people around (which usually scares him or at least sidetracks him.) 
  • Foam rolling done, my neck and shoulders were particularly grateful for the foam rolling session (which was weird because it was core day and before that leg day so not done anything particularly shoulder taxing.)
  • Uploaded 3 photos to 365.

Game Over - end of challenge reflections

 

1. Treadlift v2.0

Treadlift has been enjoyable and sustainable. Despite forgetting to switch over my workout prompt cards from level 2 to level 3 and therefore leveling up a week later than planned, I have kept up with all the workouts. Definitely seen progress, gains in strength and loss of fat. 32 points out of 32 points.

 

2. Foam rolling

Foam rolling has been a healthy addition to my routine although it has been most appropriate for days when I workout. 10 minutes is a lot of time when you are foam rolling. If I were to do this challenge again I would not specify a minimum time. I think a time limit is useful when you are time poor but a minimum target can be difficult to reach and it not necessarily an efficient use of time. 19 out of 28 points.

 

3. Steppage

I have worn my pedometer every day and measured my steps for the whole challenge. My steps have varied quite a lot from day to day and this data is going to be really useful informing my next challenge. 20 points out of 20 points

 

4. 365 Catch up

I have gotten way behind (much further than I thought) and so this challenge has opened my eyes and helped me to not only recognise how far behind I am, but also helped me to start progressing to where I ought to be. I have uploaded 45 photos during this challenge, my target for full points was 60 photos, so that's 15 points out of 20. Well on my way to catching up.

 

Rangers gonna airship (mini)

This has been AWESOME fun. I have contributed successfully to all 4 weeks' challenges. I have been doing extra walking, squats, pressups and meditations. In fact the meditation part of the mini challenge reminded me how much I get out of meditation and I should be making it part of my every day routine.

Fantastic job for this challenge. With the pictures portion, sometimes just knowing where we stand in areas plays a critical role. It was great having you as a shipmate. Well done all around.
