The End Of The Weekend

It's been a funny old week. My back is better after last week, only 2 days of slight pain so me thinks that my back is getting stronger as the recovery period is getting shorter. Maybe one day I won't have back problems at all! My knees have been aching too, mostly my left one and I think it is a bit of rheumatism as it has been cold and wet yet again, I put a heat pack on my left knee and is a lot better now. Hopefully will soon go away and can get back to normal. I had a workout with Steve again today and worked our chests and a bit of back so everything is fine there! I'm going to try and get to the gym every day this week and start to get more muscle built. I got weighed at the gym and have stayed the same for weeks now around 78kg. I asked if this was right and Steve reckoned it was, he said that if I was losing weight then I'd need to eat more but seeing I'm staying the same then fat is being replaced by muscle. I sure hope so!

Back to Normal

Had a week off work last week and it rained and hailed most of it. Me and Vince got wet loads of times and even walking to the gym on Sunday I got hailed on. It was a fairly quiet week, apart from paying bills, the usual coffee and muffin stops and the wanders around town.

Gym training doing good, Steve has started training with me and he was talking again of quiting Fitness First last week but never said anymore about it on Sunday but did mention to Richard about getting a gym membership. I really need to know what he is planning as I might need to look at getting another trainer if he leaves, or if he stays and we workout together more and he is happy with working out with me then I'll be happy with that. Vince took a few quick photo's of me and it is the first time I have seen my back since we starting training and I am really impressed with the results, but the thing the most is how my back is beginning to widen out which is looking great, when the back is wide and tapered it gives the impression of a small waist, a typical bodybuilder look. So I want to work out even more now!

My back went at work today, but not as bad as it has been, slight discomfort but still can move, hopefully it will ease during the night as I'm training again tomorrow night and don't want it to interfer, not that it has done before!

A Cold In Summer

I can't believe it, I managed to get all the way though winter without a cold or anything, come the first week of summer and I get a cold, a really bad one too. I know where it has started from, I had a sore in my throat and that's started it all. I lost my voice and got a heavy cold, I went for a training session with Steve and felt crap before it but good for a while afterwards. Then the cold really took hold and been here over the last few days. I had another training session today and had a sauna afterwards with a vapour rub on my chest to clear the sinuses but I couldn't even smell the stuff. I must have inhaled half of that steam room but still got headache and bunged up! I just hope it is on it's way now as I'm on holiday in 4 days time!

Todays workout was pretty good, it was a chest and bicep workout but Steve decided he was working out with me which was more fun. He's a fit guy, but his fitness levels lie in the stuff he does for his football and that meant I could outpace him on press ups, well for the time being anyhow!
