Just back in from the gym -

Did the 5k in 38.31 so knocked a minute if my time - tiny improvement on last week.

The leg machines I use are called - Leg Extension, Leg Press and hip abductor. I did 3x10 on each machine on the highest weight I could.

Also doing the squats, I used the barbell loaded with 37kg and did 3x10 reps.

Tomorrow - I'm going to work on my upper body.

I have a pull up bar on my door so as soon as I get up I'll do 3x10 of them

-Press ups 3x20 - Sit ups/crunches- 3x20 of each

-Head to gym use free weights.

I have routine but I don't know the names of the excercises- will find them out.

The missus joined a gym last week and I saw it had punch bags a speed ball so I signed up a 6 week membership.

I spoke to one of the instructors there and he's written out a programme for me designed to put on muscle, reducing my body fat(23%) and making me more physically fit.

Playing football at least once a week, boxing training at least one a week plus the new programme 3 times a week should see my make some progress.

Now into week 2 and feeling better for it, have noticed my arms and chest getting bigger, my gut getting smaller.

Still struggling with the running but results on the treadmill and cross trainer show I'm making small improvements.

Doing 10 mins on treadmill with interval running and 10 mins on treadmill added to using the leg press machine and the football and boxing.

Think the instructor is gonna change my programme in a week so it'll probably include more weights for my lower body then.

This is a blast from the past, just realised I've been kidding myself on about getting fit for the best part of 5 years. Now down to around 10st but that's cos I started a new job and lost 1 and a half st in 6 weeks due to stress. Still a lazy **** that can't run the length of myself though!
