Saturday
AM outdoors near apartment
A routine

went for a swim in the ocean. froze. ran out and did a 500m sand jog. defrosted.
then changed and walked ~5 kms with wife to market to buy food. non-scenic route - busy day.

followed this by attending two birthday parties. i ate ALL the cake i could get my hands on. and yesterday's office drinks were excessive. felt like an extra, thankfully not a lead, in mad men. take that, hard earned gains.

F routine
1.5 kms jog w/ interval increases
2x500m row w/u - one slow, one ~ 30
2 sets w/u 0,1

pullups 3,3,3,3,3 - couldn't complete the 4th rep of the 5th set. was just hanging there 9/10ths of the way up.
dips 7,7,7,7,8 - last set finally broke through... last rep for the 8th an honest grind. +2 dips in total volume over 3 weeks, and i'm really happy.
pushup 10,10,10,11,11 - holding steady - speed has improved.
inverted row 6,6,6,6,6,6 - these are weird - last rep is a total fight from 1st set.

Friday
PM after work
A routine
outside and to gym

7.0 kms jog to gym with 4x100m sprints + 4x25m sprints + 3.5kg backpack. ~ 50 minutes.

@ gym
TGU's - 1xeach arm with kettlebell - 4kg,8kg,10kg,12kg,14kg,16kg,20kg then flipped 20kg bell with wrist and smashed it into my forearm. smart. really smart. i guess it's like learning the shoulder press - you only smash yourself once.

then went home with wife. i've earnt an icepack and a wine, not necessarily in that order.

Tuesday
PM outside
E routine

short jogging - various active warmups (running forwards /backwards/sideways/heel to backside/knees up high/bouncing/lunges short and long/long stride/short stride/heel placement emphasis/toe push-spring emphasis/some arm windmill stuff for shoulders)

nb: this stuff is a blast for me because it looks like you're mucking around, but I find is significantly better preparation than static stretching, like the standing quad and ankle stretches. only thing i actually loosen up statically is my hips/waist - for me lower back comfort is critical for longer runs.

4x100m increasing pace runs - locking in back/tightening things up
4x100m sprints - walked back to start at slow walk > 90 seconds
10x5 second bursts < 10 seconds rest
jog-pushup-burpee every 5-8 seconds for 100m - really slow so probably did about 15 times
jogged home
