    This is my log for when I’m not following a specific program.

    19 May

    Around The Square – 3 x 4
    Tuck Jumps – 2 x 12
    Squat Jumps – 2 x 10
    Split Jumps – 3 x 12

    I finished a jumps program on 5th May and took an extensive rest. This was a short session to liven up my legs a bit, but I plan to rest further.

    21 May

    Run – 5km in 33:23

    I was reading up about strength training and a lot of the benefits of cardio can be achieved from a single 3-5km run each week. I dislike cardio but I can manage that. The loop I chose was meant to be closer to 3km and I underestimated how far it really was. I walked for parts of this.

    27 May

    Around The Square – 3 x 4
    Lateral High Jumps – 3 x 20
    Countermovement Jumps – 2 x 5 (best of 59cm)
    Single Leg Box Jumps – 2 x 8

    30 May

    Run – 5km in 32:11

    I thought I’d improve a lot more by not walking, but the overall pace was very sluggish.

    5 June

    Run – 5km in 31:28

    I pulled my calf in the first minute running downhill quite quickly, but it wasn’t enough to bother me the rest of the run. I took it easy but felt much better than last week and managed a faster time. It’s quite a hilly route so can’t be compared to a flat 5km time.

    Next week I’ll try and put some more structure in my training
