‘The Wat’ test on a sad gym day!

A sad day in the gym! Not because I failed anything – just because, I simply didn’t have the power to do much about anything. Slept like crap for two nights and worked like a maniac yesterday (13 hours), so didn’t have much left for my early morning class and my training.

A little something got squeezed out somehow – among the most dreaded ‘The Wat’ test:

During morning class with ‘Make Most of March’ group, I introduced ‘The Wat’ test, Phil Nurse introduced me to, when I was training in The Wat a year and a half ago.

‘The Wat’ test:
1 min. Squats – as many as you can squeeze out
1 min. Push Ups – same same
1 min. Burpees – same, without puking!
Around 15 – 20 sec rest btw.

Introduced it midway through class and decided to compete myself, as they were uneven numbered and I felt bad for an older teacher, who otherwise had to do it on her own. Then after 10 more minutes of boxing drills, I revealed the catch: You have to do at least 1 more rep, in same amount of time – 1 min.
They weren’t very happy with that! (neither was I)

My ‘Wat test’ times:
44/ 49 Squats – have to be added, I got preoccupied picking up the watch and get time, so I could maybe have done 1 or 2 more
53/ 59 Push Ups
21/ 22 Burpees

Had a tough time on the burpees!! Almost didn’t get that last one! Felt weak and thought it was nice, that I didn’t have to do anything more. With only a couple of minutes left, I put the guys (and lady) to punch out their last energy, in a 20-20-20-30 sec set.

Took a coffee break after class and when I got back into the gym, I wasn’t really feeling it, but decided to give it a try. You know – sometimes you push through and it’s a brand new day. Not today however!

Training on 37th day of Lent Challenge:
* 3K running (11.5kph)

* Bench
10x 20kg explosive from bottom (trying something different along with dips to increase my bench)
2x 5x 30kg (same)
2x 5x 35kg (same, same)

* 3x 6 pull ups + 4

*  Swissball sit ups

Oh yeah, and I’ve been dreaming about a man with a moving tattoo (a tank) – and the other night, a mean spirited hippo. What’s up with that?? Crazy I said!

On the countdown

After a stupid weekend, where I did managed to put in some work, we’re now at the 44th day. I do however missed the Sweet 16 – which means, I probably have to do it by myself after my boyfriend leaves me for Thailand. Which is also on the count down – both determined to end on monday 22nd.

Today we did the GPP 4:
100 Skips
10 burpees
10 push ups
10 bw squats
– 10 sets, no breaks in between sets

We did 10 or 11 in about 18 minutes. Unfortunately we forgot to count out loud between the sets, so once again, we were not quite sure, how many we were at.

Post GPP work:
2 rounds of shadow box
3 rounds of bagwork
300 knees
200 teeps

Sparring session btw GSP and Phil Nurse, The Wat 08

This afternoon 3 classes in Fitness.dk, Abc. Not quite determined, what to make them do today. But it’ll probably be some wierd Ross/ Phil Nurse hardcore conditioning rounds.

Tonight its movie time with Liam – our 2 movie date in about a year. Looking forward to that!!
