Bad week - for a reason (kinda)

Not done anything this week - initially due to laziness but then down to a work related injury. I was down in our Canary Wharf office on Tuesday, on the 38th Floor. There were rumours of a fire drill which unfortunately came through - typical. I didn't think it'd be a problem despite what people were saying - just figured they were exaggerating for comic effect. Anyhow, made it down fine - steps seemed to go on forever. Bit of a sweat towards the end, but no real biggie. Went back up via lifts after about half an hour of milling around and all was well. People were saying that the following day \ two days after I'd be suffering and boy were they right. I pretty much had to scrape myself out of bed on Wednesday and Thursday mornings. Stairs (up and down) were a serious pain - moving after a period sitting down, equally so. That said, I feel like I've finally recovered and planning a cycle tomorrow - watch this space.

C25K: W2R1

Weigh-in @ 129.1kg this morning, down a little from last week.

Lazy weekend, aside from walking the dog, which I guess is better than nothing. Started back on the C25K again this evening, starting at week two (reps of 1m30s jog followed by 2m recovery). Went well aside from stitch after the penultimate jog, which meant I took a longer break.

Can't complain besides and could have possibly done more. Gato seemed to enjoy the run as well - change in routine for him as well.

Lazy day

Weigh-in @ 129.2kg (-0.5) this morning. Didn't do any exercise besides walking the dog, but better than nothing I guess. Food wasn't too good today, with some chocolate at work and a bad breakfast. Found my Forerunner 610 so will probably be using that from now on, given the Forerunner 305 is a bit dodgy these days.

Back on the bike

Weigh-in this morning was a monumentous 129.7kg.

Got out for second ride this week - last one was on Friday. A hell of a lot better than that, more or less 4m 30s faster over 10 miles. Felt a lot better and it was a glorious evening, if a little cold.

'Diet*' wise, not too bad a day - relatively sensible eating, not much junk food (2 x muffins which for me is a good day). Lets see how the scales go tomorrow.

* I'm not actually on a diet.
