Recovery by Craig Kerbrat

Happy Sunday! It's been a bit of a week, both recovering from my cold, and then being down two people at work. But I seem to have kicked the cold, and we made it through the week at work, so all in all I feel like it was a successful week. Fitness wise it was also pretty successful.

March 15-21

  • Workouts: 2
  • Run Training: 0
  • 10000 Steps: 6
  • Steps Streak: 6
  • Top Steps: 17729
  • Starting Weight: 78.1 kg
  • Ending Weight: 77.5 kg
  • Change: -0.6 kg
  • Total Change: -0.9 kg

So Sunday I didn't make my step goal (due to #ManCold2015) but the rest of the week I managed to pull it off. I got in my two weekly workouts as well, and increased the weights I've been using by a little bit. I still haven't started with run training though. With it being such a busy week and recovering from my cold, I just didn't have the time or energy to do anything extra.

This week, I'm probably just going to stick with the same again. I don't want to wear myself out too much and end up sick again, so sticking to the usual is probably my best bet. I noticed that I went down a bit in weight, and I'm not sure if that's because I was sick or because I was eating better or what, but it was nice to see that number go down some more. So we'll see if I can keep that trend as well.

Other than that, I think that's all I've got to say for now. I hope it's a good week!

Fitness Falter by Craig Kerbrat

It's Sunday again. Woo. I've been sick for the last couple days and it making me a bit miserable. If you feel like following my myriad of complaints, check out my Twitter page and #ManCold2015. Anyway, I should probably get on with my weekly fitness update, so check it out below.

March 8-14

  • Workouts: 2
  • Run Training: 0
  • 10000 Steps: 5
  • Steps Streak: 26 (broken)
  • Top Steps: 13983
  • Starting Weight: 79.0
  • Ending Weight: 78.1
  • Change: -0.9 kg
  • Total Change: -0.3 kg

So, I lost my steps streak at 26 days. Thursday night I went to bed feeling not so great, Friday morning I woke up with this cold, and I've barely left my bed or the couch since, except for a couple excursions to buy food and sicky supplies. So needless to say, I didn't get my steps in the last couple days of the week, breaking my streak. 

I also didn't do any run training. For some reason I thought that turning the clocks back an hour would make it lighter in the mornings, but in fact, it makes it darker. It only happens every year, I really should know how that works. But that means I still haven't restarted with Zombies, Run! I did get in both of my weekly workouts before my cold took me down though, so that's good. 

This week, I really don't know what I'm going to do. I'm hoping to defeat this cold sooner than later, but it's still kicking around. I should be able to get my steps back up there, and hopefully grab my two workouts, but I feel like I'm just going to keep the running thing on the back burner for another week. 

And that is really all I've got to say for this week's update. I'm still laying in bed 'cause I'm terrified that as soon as I get up, my nose is going to start running like a faucet again, and I hate that. But I guess I should start my day or something... 

I know what I've got isn't  this  bad, but it feels like a good representation anyway.
