Day 9

I wake up every morning not wanting to get out of bed but instead wishing to "accidentally" fall back asleep. However I must be consistent, I must push myself to get up, I must challenge myself in order to better myself. I'm at day 9 and I haven't missed a planned workout yet! On a new and challenging lifestyle I must remember to always reflect on the small improvements and efforts rather than beating myself up for not being able to do what other people can. I must remember to see how far i've come and not how long I have left to go - because really, there is no end destination in this journey.

Workout
Warm up
300m row
A few chest/shoulder stretches

10 minutes to find 2 RM
1x5 15 kg bench press
1x5 17.5 kg bench press
1x5 20 kg bench press
2x2 25 kg bench press

Max reps 
1x12 20 kg bench press

10 minutes to find 5 RM
1x5 15 kg bent over row
1x4 20 kg bent over row
2x5 17.5 kg bent over row

Max reps
1x12 17.5 kg bent over row

Every 5 minutes for 15 minutes (i.e. 3 sets)
400m run
10 17.5 kg sumo deadlift high pull
As many push ups until time (I think I did about 40 all together... I forgot to count! I was too focused on not falling flat on my face during the press up)

Out of the 3 runs, I jogged two rounds with a short sprint at the end and no walking breaks! I also performed most of my push ups on my toes. Even though I don't feel as "sore" as I did last week, I feel as if i've accomplished more today. I'm proud of myself with the 400m runs!! Baby steps until i'm fit and lean hehehehehe (5 days until my first official 5 km race! Eek, I don't even think I can run 1 km yet, but i'll see how I go with the time and will try to beat it next year!)

I had training to be a junior high school English tutor from 11AM-3PM then I taught my usual (grade 6) class from 4.30-8PM. Yep long ass day. And now i'm pooped.

P.S. my July GoodnessMe box came in! Yippeeeeeee - I shall share a quick product review after trying them out. I'm so excited though because I received Your Tea's Happy tea in this month's box! I've been wanting to try Your Tea for SO long; they're organic herbal teas filled with no nasties.
