26 oct 2012: the whores hustle

tired, aching and feeling great as i write this – all three due to this morning’s gym session. walking, jogging, weights and lots of sweating. the best bit of course is having a shower, freshening up and feeling great afterwards!

that usually lasts until i’m sat on the bus, then the tiredness kicks in and i grab a nap. it’s a distinctive tiredness though, not one of having slept too little, or being stressed out, or doing too much – pure physical tiredness that comes from the muscles being drained of energy.

the treadmill stuff went nicely – i set the treadmill to 10 km/h when doing the jog part of the 500m intervals and am reasonably confident i can start pushing for that as my “default” jogging pace.

with the weights i was surprised how quickly i seemed to have nothing left! apart from the first set of 20 on chest press, all the weights-related sets were split (i.e. i had to take a few seconds recovery after 10 or 12 reps).

all worth it in the end though!
