Bench Press: 60x3x5
Sit-ups : 25 15 10 (unanchored)
No increase on the squat, increased the others. Bench doesn't feel good. deadlift I reckon I could go up - grip isn't great. Squat felt better - so maybe I'll try get it up 2.5kg on Saturday. I start to feel anxious about dropping the weight or hurting myself with the bench and the squat.
Haven't done any exercise since Saturday - lost a tonne of mojo post Sydney Marathon - and I didn't even run! My foot pulled up really sore after being out on it for about 7 hrs and jogging a little bit from place to place. It was good to get a couple of good looks at the elite runners - especially Ben St Lawrence in the half who must have one of the nicest running techniques going. Somehow post Olympics he was beaten - looking forward to his marathon debut.
|The top three. Ben St Lawrence (3rd), Scott Westcott (2nd), Takahiro Gunji (1st)|
|Lead pack at 5k. Kawauchi (in green) broke the course record.|
Also got to see the elites at the front of the marathon and ended up having the photo I took on the Japan Running News blog - I was tweeting the splits of Yuki Kawauchi where I could. Social media was good - had a tiny bit of interaction with Lee Troop and Ben St Lawrence.
