I notice that you measured your squats by time. what’s the story behind that??

By 1:8 i mean 1 set of 8 reps, with 2min. rest between each set

What about this from Monday the 26th?

“50kg squats 3x 20secs”

Was that a typo??

Oh I forgot about last Monday, yes the squats were timed indeed. We had to do most half squats possible in 20 secs

Same thing for medicine ball twists and some other weird exercise

Wednesday 5 December

Test day

500-300-150m all with 15min. rest between runs.

500m 1:12 (pb) Started to accelerate only after 250m so I know I could have run a good 1:09 or so.

I’m in good shape right now, my energy levels are up since I started eating more (strength training makes me hungry), added 4.5 lbs in about a month.

Didn’t do the 300 and 150… foot pain.

I won’t be able to run for a few days/weeks though because my top of foot is hurting like crazy, I walk funny now

I’m always having foot problems… is it due to weak ankles/foot? Maybe someone can help me out here :slight_smile: !
