Today was fun, and something I quite literally made up as I went. Today was a classic example of adapting to the situation in which you find yourself, and making the most of it. I had two lessons to lead this morning, which I had planned on engaging with in the same manner as the one yesterday, however it became apparent very quickly that my body wasn't feeling that, so I adapted and completed the following.
12x400m 70-80% intensity in the space of 2 hours, plus around a mile or so of lower intensity running. All wearing boots and combats.
Run 1 Mile
50 Strict Pull-Ups
Run 1 Mile
Wearing 20lb/9kg vest
I used my Bulldog Gear Tactical Weight Vest, which is my go to for anything requiring a fixed load.
I had breakfast around 7am. I had a heap of bacon, 4 scrambled eggs and half and avocado.
I had lunch just after midday in the army cookhouse. It was a chicken fillet burger and fries, with mixed garden vegetables, followed by two bananas and an apple.
At around 6:30pm, I had a rump steak, two salmon fillets, a pork steak topped with cheese, some cherry tomatoes and mixed mushrooms and courgettes fried in garlic. I followed this with banana, orange and yoghurt with honey.
It felt good to take on some training related to the upcoming Mountain Murph challenge, and do a couple of lighter days, but my body is craving lifting again now.
