40 day Lent challenge, Sport, training

Fail day!

After a stressful Wednesday (as usual), with a huge chicken shawarma for dinner (Finally found Corks best sharwarma! However chicken not near as good as lamb!!!), I didn’t felt up for training after my early boxercise class this morning. However after two coffee and breakfast I was off to the gym anyway. Didn’t really have a plan for today, other than get a small 5K run down and do some bench pressing.

After the run, I aimed for the bench and quietly told myself to go for 50kg for todays Lent challenge. And I failed miserably. Whether it was lack of strength, poor use of power or sloppy technique (which I doubt – the bench is quite easy) – it just wouldn’t come up from about 30 degrees. Even a measly 45kg after this was a fail – so I decided that, THAT was enough with the ‘stupid’ bench.

Lent Challenge day 23:

* 5K running (12.5kph)
* 10x 20kg Bench warm up
* 4x 40kg
* 1x 50kg – Fail
* 1x 45 kg – Not good looking
* 30 Pull Ups (2x 6, 2x 4, 2x 5)
* 100 Abs
* 20 Push Ups w/ spider legs

Lent challenge day 22:
Keeping up appearances and getting 10 burpees down when possible. 16kg KB disappeared from the gym, so was on 12kg all day.

Total approx 12kgKB:
* 80 Swings
* 40 C&J
* 20 Halo
* 20 Windmills
* 15 Burpees with KB
* 6 Amazone get ups
* 100 saxon sidebends
*  50 Burpees

So – had a bad ‘hair day’ on the bench and a wrecked day in total. My guess is the stress and huge sharwarma from yesterday that made an impact on today as well. Going out tonight, so will try to steer clear from binging on food again. It’s really not worth it the day after in the gym.

Huge as* sharwarma. This one with lamb - which is the best! .p

By second thought – it might also be a wink with a barbel, that I should find some new interesting challenges, than powerlifting, to throw myself at. Hmmm…
