Jamie Eason's LiveFit trainer - Phase 1 Day 16

Wow.  London needs to get a grip on its weather!  It has rained, pretty much 95% of the time since I got back from Cape Town.  I don't know how much more of this I can take!  Not only is it messing with my outfit choices, but its messing with my hair and my desire to move somewhere the sun shines.

This is part of what my walk to work looked like yesterday.  Honestly, as soon as I went to step outside my front door, the heavens opened and I got saturated.  Yes, I was carrying an umbrella however it doesn't seem to matter when the rain is coming at you sideways and from below.  Aghhhh... Rant over about the weather.  It is just so annoying!

Today was back and biceps.  I usually love this day however my right bicep was really sore after doing the Zwow yesterday.  I must have tweaked it somehow because it felt like it was MASSIVE all day while I was sitting at my desk haha.

Tuesday WOD
10mins elliptical trainer, warm up

3 sets of 10 of the below exercises:
Pull ups
Wide grip lat pull down
Seated cable row
Bent over BB row
Back extensions
BB curl
Alternate hammer curl
*I missed the incline DB curl as the benches were not free and my bicep was killing me.... in a good way :)

After work I decided to walk home, even though it was full on raining again.  I just can't justify myself to spend a few pounds on the bus ride home when it is only a few stops.  Thankfully the rain eased off a little towards the end and I was motivated to pop out for a quick run.

I had originally planned on doing a Zwow but decided against for my arms sake.

By the time I got to the park I needed windscreen wipers on my glasses.  It was coming down pretty hard but I love that feeling of running in the rain.  It is quite liberating.

Needless to say, when I got home I collapsed into a heap of wet sweaty mess.  My legs felt super strong as per usual on my run, but my fitness it still taking some time to come back to me.  I am trying to be patient with myself while I improve but I can't help setting little mini goals for me every time I go out.

Dinner tonight was supposed to be another smoothie.  Then I was supposed to have egg whites and veggies.  Then I couldn't be bothered doing that either so I threw a veggie nut cutlet in the oven and cooked up some egg whites on the stove with a small amount of cheese.... and chutney.  I know I know.  For once there are no greens on my plate.  I couldn't help it.  I was lazy.... Sorry Mum!!

After dinner I did a load of foam rolling.  Man, that spot there feels so good!  My legs are still a bit tender from legs day on Monday so this was much needed.  Even after my run.  If you haven't bought one of these already, please do.  You can find one similar to the one I have here.
