Right so week one of the #NoobBoob Challenge is down. I would be lying if I said that it wasn’t sore. Actually I would be lying if I said that I wasn’t in complete agony and my body was as tired as hell. My body is actually close to the point of sleep walking.
Anyway, Monday started with my first session of physio for my shin splints and by gawd was that painful! I had to do a couple of exercises at first and then she unleashed her little devil fingers for a massage that was from satan himself!
After wanting to punch her Monday also followed my first coaching session of the season and after the physio I actually felt pretty good surprisingly. I managed a quick session on the bike after that and felt pretty sore and exhausted at the end of it, but I guess that is expected after shovelling pies down my gullet without doing any exercise really for about 5 months.
The rest of the week saw me train by myself for a good couple hours each day on the astro with Wednesday being another coaching session. Thursday I took the day off due to their being a power failure at the gym which gave me a valid excuse in my books.
Friday came and saw me back at the pain lady. This time she was really impressed with the progress I had made and I was dam sure to boast aboutt having been to the gym more this week than I think I have in my life! Anyway, here I am on Sunday after a full week of hitting the gym and doing my stretching and strengthening exercises and I am feeling good. I am not in as much pain and I feel fitter and healthy already. My weight hasn’t budged from just shy of 90kgs but I am hoping that this next week or two sees me make some progress.
I have roped in a mate to join the challenge and maybe I will post his progress here as well. Anyone else wanting to join the challenge and welcome a six pack? ;)
