By the look of the blog forum, if I want posts, instead of doing exercise I should either be tinks, or a girl trying to gain weight.
Went docs the other day, he said avoid running for a week or two. Went to hockey today, didn't run, feet didn't feel too bad, so I think I am now basically fine, hoorah!
Thread for me!

Went cycling today. Really felt it in my hamstrings going uphill. May have to start doing some sprint cycling or the like regularly.
5*2 pullups(+16kg), 5*3(+8kg), 5*5(BW)
5*10 BW squats(fast)
Very gentle 2 hours of squash. Also 2*10 pullups, 10 pressups.
Had hockey on thursday, calves were feeling it the next day bizarrely!
Today did 3*15 dips, and 100curls with 8kg dumbell per arm(say commandant mention a similar thing with just a 20kg bar, and I had the dumbells so thought I'd try it...pretty much did it in sets of 5/10 by the end, but still kept hold in the moment or two's rest).
6*football pitch sprints, walk back the length of the pitch for rest.
Felt like I was gonna spew after 5/6..
20 dips, 10 pullups, 15 dips, 10 pullups, 10 dips, 10 pullups, 5 dips, 3 pullups.
May go for a short run later.
8*100m sprints at the track(rest of walking back)
5*(10 dips, 5 pullups) at BW+8kg
Just a bit of a mess around with my dumbells at the end there.
20 dips, 10 pullups, 15 dips, 10 pullups, 15 dips, 10 pullups, 15 dips, 8 pullups
Some curls, presses, squat press things.

Going back to uni tomorrow, figured I should keep a log somewhere I go frequently.
Basically, I'm keen on getting fitter, and hopefully a little bit stronger.
Will have 4-5 hours of badminton a week, and a hockey match most weeks(once the astros thaw). On top of this I'm thinking of running SS, and then doing cardio when I have time otherwise. Thinking running, erging and swimming are gonna be my main cardio, although I have around 6-7 miles of cycling every day for lectures(more on days with badminton).
Haven't really strength trained in the past properly, did SS for a little last term till work got too much, so these are gonna be a bit high:
Pullups-max at the mo seems to be 8.
Current bodyweight~91-92kg, 5'10-11
Not too worried about stats, basic goal is just to feel fitter, maybe look a bit better, and hopefully get a bit stronger/faster.
I know it looks like I've got a lot planned here, but I'll probably drop bits as time goes on.
Anyway, here's this for a log.
A few hillsprints. Quads slightly tight, probably was a good move to get moving a bit, though damn the air was cold in my throat tonight!
2 laps, 9:05, 9:42.
Hockey match. Was feeling a bit unfit at times, but didn't seem too bad overall. We won, but I was terrible. Ah well.
15*sprints across a football pitch, rest on the walk back
Not so hard, think I need shorter rests for proper sprint stuff.
Was gonna try for 100 burpees for time, but got to 20(in about 1:40), and a couple later felt something bizarre in my left thigh, so gonna leave it for now. Might try again later in a bit.
Hockey match on Sat. Scored 4. Aren't I just fabulous?
Not too much exercise recently though, sorting out moving a bit.
The blues captain trains in the Jesus gym btw.
He quarter squats 100kg with the pad
Wed-cycled 3-4 miles uphill, did hockey training, cycled back.
Saturday-4-5 miles cycle uphill, hockey match, cycle back.
Today, I went for a free session at a gym(turned out to basically be a health club, but hey, better than nothing):
10 mins or so on the treadmill, increasing speed every half minute. Got up to 17 of km/h(I assume km/h, obviously not mph but could be something else). Some leg press stuff, DB OHP(18kg*3*5), DB Bench(22kg*3*5), some lateral raises, a few lunges(very few at like, 38kg DBs), curls(8kg*10,10kg*10,12kg*10), some foam rolling, and some light DB movements. Think that was about it.
