Really sore. But in a good way.

After yesterday’s little rant, it’s back to the usual programming.

On Monday I did an early morning gym session with a work colleague, concentrating on upper body – which I’m guilty of neglecting – using kettle bells.  The workout went like this :-

10 kettlebell lifts
1 pushup
10 kettlebell lifts
2 pushups
10 kettlebell lifts
3 pushups

Repeat the lifts and pushups, increasing the number of pushups by one until you do 10 of each.  If that hasn’t completely burned you out, or your a glutton for punishment, keep going, but reduce the number of pushups each time till you get back to one.
It’s a tough one, but I did really feel like I’d done some good.

This morning we concentrated on core strength, which again was tough, but really good.  Tonight after work, I’m going straight to my yoga class (Vinyasa flow).  (Think I’ll deserve that G&T when I finally get to the pub quiz tonight.)

I’m actually feeling really motivated at the moment, as I’m also on the Atkins diet, and I’ve lost 2 1/2″ off my belly, which is great.

  2. Its awesome how a lot of people are moving towards Yoga 🙂 Meditation and yoga are food for my soul. Have you been to Rishikesh in India? It is the YOGA capital of the World and has number of ashrams for meditation and yoga.
    Read my blog on it here –

    Do visit when you have the chance, you’d love it! Much love from India. Namaste 🙂

    • Hi.

      I’ve been to India, but not to Rishikesh. I went to Mumbai, Dehli, Jaipur, Rajistan, Kovolam and Varkala.
      Loved what I saw of India, but know there’s so much more to see and experience, so I will return one day.

    I have kettlebells at home (and I love them!!) so definitely going to try this! 🙂

  4. Hiya. I noticed your website title, “Really sore. But in a good way. ” doesn’t really reflect the
    content of your website. When creating your blog title, do you believe it’s most beneficial to write it for SEO or for your
    viewers? This is something I’ve been struggling with
    simply because I want great search rankings but at the same time I
    want the best quality for my visitors.

    • “Hiya. I noticed your website title, “Really sore. But in a good way. ” doesn’t really reflect the
      content of your website” – It’s not the title of the website, it was just the title of that one post, and it does reflect the content of that post. The “sore” was post workout aches, and it was “good” because I knew I’d put in a decent effort at the gym, otherwise I wouldn’t have been sore.
      I put titles that reflect the content of the post, not titles I think will pull people in.
      if you want to attract people, it’s the tags that you use that will do that. It I add a tag of “yoga” to a post. If someone is searching for articles on yoga, then that post will probably pop up.
      Personally I write this blog for me. If other people like reading what I post, then I’m flattered, but I’m not writing it with the aim of getting search engine rankings.

      If you’re wanting to attract people, I’d just say, make the post title reflect the post content, and use appropriate tags. Don’t use a tag to pull people in, if you’re not posting about that topic, as personally that would put me off visiting the site again.

      Hope that’s some help.
