Training update – June 1 and 4, 2006

Monday, June 5th, 2006

MM,

What a heat wave last week! I ended up taking a few days off of training last week. I think I needed to let my body rest a bit, and the heat wave was not conducive to strenuous exercise. So, I started off the month of June with 2.6 km run (just a little more than a mile and a half).

June 1, 2006

I ran 2.6 km (a little more than a mile and a half) in 14 minutes 9 seconds.

June 4, 2006

I went to taekwondo for the test training. It was a good class. We worked on the requirements for the test. After the do jang, I meet up with Nathan at the gym. I was starting to miss the weight training. It’s funny, but after some time to rest, my muscles really miss the workout. Always feel so strong after weight training. 😀

Leg lifts
Pull-ups (aka chin-ups, military and parallel)
Dips
Leg press
Hamstring flexor (called seated leg curls)
Hip adductors
Hip abductors
Seated row
Bar pulls (I think this is called the lateral pull-downs; it works the muscles next to the scapulae on the back)
Seated chest press
Shoulder fly
Shoulder lift (this is called the shoulder press)

Free weights:
Situps (on a incline bench; worked out the obliques as well by doing double punches during the situp)
Bicep curls
Pectoral fly
Shoulder strengthening
Push-ups

Well, after having a nice little break, I think I’m ready for another busy week. Tonight is a do jang night and tomorrow I’m going to try a 5 km route (actually works out to 5.2 km/3.25 miles, but will be good for me to go the extra distance as this is a little more than half the 10 k run).

Today’s official countdown: 4 weeks, 5 days left.
