Last week was a tough one. We had Monday's Thai session as usual but Tuesday was our rest day, then had three days on the trot. Wednesday Thai, Thursday and Friday Strength and Conditioning. Lots of bodyweight stuff, press-ups a go-go - my biceps are getting solid and were aching most of the weekend.
Just completed the first session of the last and 6th week of Fight Camp. I struggled this morning, but i'm putting it down to the weekend away. There were no long lie's for Sara on Saturday or Sunday :( and my legs never got a chance to rest between hiking up an down Ben Nevis and standing about. What I did notice as I was bounding up and down the mountain was that my legs felt much stronger and had more power in them and I wasn't out of breath when I was doing it.
As much as I have enjoyed the Fight Camp I am looking forward to it finishing. I need a break from the early mornings. But I am also looking forward to starting some new classes and sports.
It is not the best picture I've included this week, but I have put together a week on week comparison and I am surprised at the difference between now and week one. I'll get the pic posted when I do my last Fight Camp post at the end of the week to include the results of my measurements and such.
I said I wasn't going to weigh myself until end of Fight Camp but I buckled under my curiosity on Saturday morning and was pleased to see that according to my scales in the house I have lost 4lbs. Woop Woop! Not bad considering I know I am building muscle at the same time. I was more strict with myself with eating last week so it's paying off.
Plan of action this week is to carry on with the eating regime. Get my head down and bust my guts during the final week. I'm also going to try and squeeze some swimming in this week.
I'll leave you with a couple of quotes I stumbled across through the week, I've had them on repeat for the last few days to keep myself going:
"The only difference between try and triumph is a little bit of umph!" - Marvin Phillips
"Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up." - Thomas Edison
