My first off season training week has ended so I’ll share a little report.
Thursday was jogging day and I discovered how not to die: firstly by going slower (and I lengthened the route a bit to compensate) and secondly by focusing on my breathing. As I already said, I forget how to breathe when I run… so I tried to really concentrate on inhaling through my nose and exhaling through my mouth at regular, not rushed intervals. It was unsurprisingly hard, and at the slightest distraction I started to pant ridiculously :D
Friday was strength training day and all went very smooth with the exception of abs again. The point is that the exercise I choose seems really nice, but I can’t actually do it: the yoga ball is too big and I’m also probably doing something wrong…
Saturday should have been jog day, but I forgot :/
Yesterday was strength day again and this time I forgot the yoga ball and stuck my feet between the sofa cushions instead. Much better!
All considered I’m satisfied, but I really shouldn’t skip training because I forget about it, it’s like the stupidest reason ever. My goal for this week (since it’s a bit too soon to talk about weight loss) is not forgetting to train and maybe try some positions to put my stretching to skating related use, maybe the biellman or even just the splits will do.
Why now?“ I asked, knowing I probably didn’t want to hear the answer.
“Two reasons. One, I miss talking to you.”
His eyes flashed up, his gaze holding mine for a beat.
“You’re the only person who has ever known me - for better and worse.
