Notes

A good 90 minute session. Weights were a source of frustration for a while. Dropped the weight back a bit due to taking time off recently etc. but had to drop them further.

Then it dawned on me – 20 reps where I’d been doing 10 reps before. Plus I’d done about 45 minutes of walking and jogging immediately before!

A few hundred grams of sweat expended again 🙂
