After a rather long 'break' from my routine (got a new job - moved house etc) i've finally decided to buy myself a little setup and get back into shape!
First on the agenda: Cardio! - then once im comfortable with my BF% etc, and I'm generally getting back into the swing of things, i'm going to start doing some upper-body workouts (leaving legs for the time being).
I've basically stripped down my old routines, so hopefully it'll all come back to me heh
Diet-wise... currently don't have much of a kitchen and because i'll be running 'before' i leave for work, i'll have to eat after
my run (cereal + brown bread
). Not too sure if i should really bother with any kind of supplements right now (is there anything worth having 15 mins before my run!?)
As for the cardio: I'm doing the 'couch to 5k' plan - but tweaked a little bit. I've started on week 2 (1.5 min run / 2 min walk) and ive stretched each plan to last 30 minutes minimum.
This is how the plan looks:
I use an HRM to track my progress and i'll be posting my cardio results every Friday and my weigh-ins every Monday
Here's my inital run (HR is hideously high - but hey - hopefully it won't take me long to get back to my previous fitness levels!)
Wish me luck!
Any critique/comments gratefully received
Update: I'll also be doing starting some upper-body routines
(most likely Saturday/Sunday - while i'm having a break from the cardio). I'll add the routines once i've finished them...
