Week 5

7 Weeks Out

Another week down and some new and interesting challenges, both mentally and physically. Trainer Steve introduced me to my first cardio session of intervals this week.

Now, yes I am very familiar with cardio and interval training but after about 6 months of weight training and minimal cardio, 45 minutes on the rowing machine was a bit of a shock to the system. 20 second sprints and 40 second steady x20, I was sweating and ready to lay flat on my back. There was more to follow, 25 minutes to finish at a steady pace. Yes on the rower. Not my favourite session but I was happy to finish and felt amazing for the rest of the day.
