It was good to get some time early this morning to go through some mobility work. I’m becoming quite a fan of the six stretches that I’ve been banging on about over the past few months. I actually never thought I would ever look forward to stretching….sooo boring. Unfortunately, the niggles and injuries make it a necessity.
This drill takes around 30 minutes and was finished off with around 15 minutes of stick and roller work on my slowly-improving-ITB’s. Felt pretty good after this.
Three rounds, for time…
Run 400m, 50 Squats.
< 9:44 >
I deliberately kept the run at a moderate pace, just looking to establish a good base rate for the race. The squats were deep…hitting about 25-30cm off the ground with each rep.
Row 5:00 minutes, Rest 2:30 minutes, Row 6:00 minutes, Rest 3:00 minutes, Row 7:00 minutes
R1 1,406m (1:46.6/500m) R2 1,650m (1:49.0/500m) R3 1,941m (1:49.7/500m)
Just to spice things up today, Marcelle had to take Gus to hospital for x-rays after a fall at school. After your standard 4-hour wait, the x-rays came back all clear and Gus has his badly sprained right wrist in a half-cast. He has his soccer grand final this Friday, so he’s hopeful that the half-cast will be enough to survive the game. Fingers crossed.
This is a good example of how fragile those suffering ME/CFS can be. Even this pretty standard event (standard when you have two boys at least) has brought Marcelle to a grinding halt…forcing her to bed by around 5.15pm today. I’m hoping she feels better tomorrow x
