So I went jogging for the second time this week and did a lot better. I took my iPod, although I forgot to take a drink…so I’ll be doing that next time.
I ate some toast and a slow release energy biscuit before I went which helped. Last time I stopped four times on the first half of the run, then got dragged along and only had two stops the rest of the way, but this time I only had four stops and managed to jog up half the big hill at the end 🙂
We started sit ups the other day, my partner has to sit on my feet to stop them lifting off the floor lol We did two lots of 10, so 10 sit ups, rest for 2 minutes and 10 more. He made sure I used my stomach and not my neck to lift up and I didn’t keep flopping down rather than controlling it.
As my partner is my trainer he’s decided we’ll take two rest days a week, which will mean we alternate between sit up and jogging weeks, so a sit up week would be sit up-jog-sit up-jog sit up and a jog week being jog-sit up-jog-sit up-jog.
There’s no noticeable difference yet…but then after 1 week there isn’t going to be so we’ll just have to see how things go 🙂
P.S. This isn’t gonna turn into a blog about jogging, just in case you were worried…it’s not going to be The Fitness Diary in a few weeks 😉
