Hitting the Weights

Day 115 – Tuesday 18th September 2012.

I must admit that I have been quite slack over the past few weeks in keeping up with posting my results from my Fitness Training 2012 regularly (the last post being back on the 9th of September). Although things have not been ideal and I have missed days (and at times whole weeks such as from the 28th August – 9th of September) I can say that this past week my training has been rather consistent at an average of three sessions per week. My biggest dilemma at the moment seems to be finding the opportunity to blog on my progress due to the ridiculous number of university assignments I have had due and still have due in the next two weeks, i am just grateful that I have stayed on top of the University workload otherwise I’d be in all sorts of trouble by now.

This morning I made the intentional effort to be up extra early to ensure that I would be ready for the gym. I was disappointed yesterday when I slept through my alarm and didn’t get to the cardio-vascular session, I really feel with the new indoor season a matter of weeks away that I can’t afford to be missing too many sessions if I want to ensure that I am fit. I did do my first weights session for a long time today, easing back into the routine all my weights were dropped significantly from what I have previously done managing only 55kg on  the barbell for my bench press and using only 10kg and 15 kg dumb-bells for the remainder of my workout. I could have pushed myself and gone quite a bit heavier but as I have had such a long break I want to ease into it to try and reduce the amount of tightness and soreness I will experience over the next few days. I also hope that doing it this way will allow me to really focus on my technique and isolate my muscle groups being worked to ensure that I get the most out of the exercises.

To be honest, I am feeling quite good at the moment as I write this post, hopefully this feeling continues throughout the course of the day and into tomorrow when I get up to do my next cardio-vascular workout.

I am aware that I will need to be mindful of my workload over the next week and a half, I have 5 assignments due in over this time. I am feeling pretty good and confident about getting everything completed well and on time, I just know it’ll be a push as well. Fingers crossed that my dedication to training will put me in good stead to be focused during those times of university study and focus.
