Went to see Austin again (gait analysis man) so I got videoed running and walking on the treadmill, we looked at these and also the ones from October,i am much improved :)
Also he gave me some new/altered exercises. First with my dips i now have to try them on a wobble board or similar, or maybe with heavier weights. And off a step too. Then I have to clam too, with stretchy elastic for resistance.

Strength 25:00 [3]

Spent like 10 mins running on the treadmill-it was going quite fast. And then we went through the exercises and i was doing clam for ages!

Running 1:15:00 [3]

Did a 10 min jog to Pound Meadow. Then stretched and did drills until about 10/5 to 8.
Then did these intervals where we strided for 10secs,had 10 secs rest then had 10 secs to stride back the way we came (to see if we could get back to the start again). Then did 20 secs out, 10 secs rest, 20 secs back. Then 30 secs out, 20 secs rest, 30 secs back, Then had a 5 minute rest and repeated that. Then walk/jogged back to the school. Was tough.

Circuits (Aerobic) 1:05:00 [3]

Did an aerobic session today. Did some boxing and jogging for the warm up. Then did 1 1/2 mins on each station but in between every or every other station we did a staggered shuttle run-1 or 2 of them. and then back to the circuit
was very tough and took too long so didn't do sit ups etc at the end just stretchign for like 5 mins

PE (Badminton) 40:00 [3]

Last lesson doing badminton, was in the dining room with Sophie so was quite energetic and better than playing in the hall.

PE (Basketball) 45:00 [3]

Was also last lesson doing basketball, played some games outside, was allowed to do it mixed boys & girls but that also meant had to run faster from one end of the pitch to the other!

PE (Badminton) 45:00 [3]

Did badminton, was an assessed lesson but I didn't get my score. But he assessed me while I was still warming up and didn't know he was watching me so..
Was quite energetic once I went into the gym and played with Laura and Amy

PE (Netball) 1:10:00 [3]

Started off doing fitness stuff, like sprinting to lines and jogging back, did that for like 20 mins with press ups and stuff too. Then did a few passing drills etc. that involved running for the ball.Then played a game for 20 mins but there was only like 10 of us so we scraped teams of 6 with the coaches involved. First I was GD but finally swapped to WA at the end of the game.

Run 32:15 [3] 5.46 km (5:54 / km)

Went on a run with my Bex took a map of Kyloe to get to know it and to do some visualisation practice.
With the map used the W21 course from when BOC was there. We alternated legs with one person looking at leg and visualising how we would carry out the leg, then handing the map to the other person and describing exactly how we would do it. Then having a bit of a discussion if there was another way of doing it and best attack point etc. Did 17 controls.
Although it was a slow-ish run for Bex found it quite hard as my body was tired from sat and also I still felt a bit ill.

Strength (Austins Exercises) 15:00 [3]

Did lunges, sqauts and dips as normal but used some light hand weights with them. Did while watching Larkrise to Candleford :) But going back to Austin on sat so need to do more exercises before then!
