What a busy Saturday it’s been. Started with the 1km swim at the BBC. Summer is in the air but still early mornings cool. I arrived late and missed the start. Got times mixed up. Went last off the beach with Anthony Green, one of the best swimmers in the club. Needless to say I finished a very long last – about 200 metres behind the field. Didn’t trouble Greeny at all except when we were walking into the water at the start. Didn’t see him after that. Still swimming very slowly. Not sure why. Feel lethargic and fatigued before I get in. Maybe it’s the antibiotics. They finish tomoorw.
Had nothing on Saturday afternoon so decided I would try the Virgin gym in Frenchs Forest again. Enjoyed it last time. Great views from the glass walls, south to the eastern suburbs, the city, North Sydney and Chatswood. I had no idea the views were as good from Allambie Heights.
Stationary Bike 30mins – level 7 – average cadence 70rpm
Distance: 10.6km………Energy: 265 kcl……..Workload 147 watts
I was sweating a bit when I finished, but I think I need to push a bit harder. Not that much exercise for my bad leg
Leg curls 20 x 15kg with one leg only. This hurt my knee a bit
Leg extensions 2 sets x 10 x 10kgs Lifting with both legs, lowering with bad leg. Knee aching a bit when I got up
Leg press 100 x 20kg Using both legs. This was relatively easy. Did it without stopping. Will probably have to up the weight.
Nice way to spend Saturday afternoon and my leg didn’t hurt too much.
