Sunday, 17 Aug
Should have gone to roller derby practice, but didn't due to engineering works on tube/DLR that would have made the trip 2+hrs each way to get there. Too lazy to do that.

Lifted weights:
- Deadlift
- DB bench
- DB overhead
- One-arm db row
- Lat pulldown

Tues, 19 Aug
Roller derby practice, 2hrs. Did a long pack-hitting drill, so felt pretty beat up by the end!

My mother has been staying with us, so I have missed a lot of practices/exercise. I'm especially unable to do weights as doing them causes us to eat at 9:00pm or later which is too late for my mom.

Wed, 20 Aug
Cycled to and from work (15mi/24km)

Tues, 26 Aug
Roller derby practice, 2 hrs

Wed, 27 Aug
Cycled to and from work (15mi/24km)

I'm planning to ride to work tomorrow and then that will probably be it for exercise until Monday, after she has returned home. I hope I don't get too out of shape!

I have still been skating and cycling, but having major problems finding any time to fit in weights.

Recent activity.

Sunday: 3 hr derby practice
Monday: cycle commute
Tuesday: 2 hr derby practice
Wednesday: nothing
Thursday: 1.5 hour derby practice
Friday: cycle commute

Got 2 hr practice tomorrow and 3 hr on Sunday.

I have derby practice 3 times a week: Tues, Thurs, Sun. Plus Sat once or twice a month. I can't lift weights on the same day as practice as it would be too much and I also generally don't have time (e.g., on the weeknights, I get home from practice between 11:00 and 11:45).

I don't mind lifting weights on the same day as commuting on my bike. So that means I potentially have Mon, Wed, Fri, and some Sat for weights. However, my partner and I lift together and both have to be there so we can spot each other. And my partner works evenings on Wed, so that's out. That leaves Mon, Fri, and some Saturdays. Can't do Fri and Sat, so my free Sat basically would be good for weeks on which I can't do Fri for some reason. So that's 2 weights sessions per week max.

But with only two evenings per week free, generally, if I am ever to do anything else in my life other than work or derby, it will fall on Mon or Fri or Sat. For example, we are very soon going to start a six-week meditation course on Mon evenings. So then we are down to just Fridays.

That leaves us in a situation where it's really hard to be consistent and we sometimes go weeks without having an opportunity to lift. It's really frustrating.

OK, so that was just a little vent! I'm feeling a wee bit tired and maybe like I am getting a bit sick. Probably mostly tired, though...

I am starting an external fitness blog specifically for the next 90 days when I am going to try to be really good about my diet and exercise.
