Walking Activity 7.61 km | RunKeeper

Today I completed both my gym routine (weights) and a walk with the Manawatu Striders club.  Both went really well.

I can now manage 10,10,8  with the lateral raises  (working my way up to the 3×12 that my program specifies).

Smith machine squatsI’m still finding squats in the smith machine quite difficult.  I’m only doing 30kg which is significantly less than most people can do (my little brother does way more!).  I wonder if it’s something to do with my lordosis (excessively curved spine) and what I might be able to do about that…   It is getting my heart rate up a lot, which is the point after all.  I guess I’ll make small gains over time.

I recently decided I wanted to get into walking/running so made contact with Manawatu Striders.  They meet Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.  At this stage I think I’ll go along on Tuesdays.

There was a good turn out at tonight’s meeting – about 20 people.  We went for a walk up Summerhill drive.  I was really surprised with how fast these mostly older people could walk!  I got talking to a nice lady and we ended up being at the back of the pack despite me thinking I was walking pretty fast.  Anyway it was a nice walk.  Could feel it in my glutes and lower back – but no pain, no gain, right?

Nice healthy dinner of tuna and vegetables tonight, with strawberries and yoghurt for dessert.
