Sunday turned out a bit different than planned: while playing football with Kiera I managed to hit the floor with my toe with all my strength - ouch!!!
Sunday night it hurt so much that I tought I'd broken it, so bandaged it up and hobbled round on it on Monday, hoping that it would heal on its own accord. Tell you what: homoeopathic arnica is amazing! 3 of those little pills and my foot only plays up a little bit every now and then - what a relief.
I'm taking it easy on the running for this week tho, don't fancy being halfway and finding out that it hurts too much to continue and then having to walk back in the freezing cold.
Today was a bit of a pants day: some of you might maybe remember Malcolm (the first half of my nick). He was my best mate for 7.5 years before he sadly died of cancer in May of this year. I still miss him every day, and today would have been his 8th anniversary with me. Felt rotten all day thinking about him...
Did go to the gym tho, tweaked my workout a bit, changing upper/lower body to chest/shoulders/abs one day and legs/back/abs the other day. Reason being that I wanted to balance things out a bit better and while working my legs is my least favourite, working my back is my most favourite, so by combining those I'll have something to look forward to, if that makes sense.
10 mins rower
2x10 tri dips @ 110 lbs - scandalous I know, I've got no strength in that part of my body at all!
2x10 DB flyes @ 5 kgs DBs - bench press was heavily in use, so figured I'd do these instead
2x10 upright row @ 10 kgs BB
1x10, 1x8 mil press @ 10 kgs BB - failed at 8 reps
2x10 rotator cuffs @ 1 kgs DB
2x10 decline sit ups, no weights - I've barely recovered from the weighed ones last week!
