JUMP is horrible in the sense that it’s SO FREAKISHLY PEDAGOGICAL. first we had to stand in a circle and throw a ball, saying our name as we threw it, and second round we had to mention our ~favourite colour~, and then finally we had to say the person we were throwing the ball at’s name. then some information about it all. THEN we had to make a ~poster~ with words of what we expected to get out of this activation course —- and of course the most illiterate girl there was the one to take on the task of writing these words down while the rest of us just sat there in silence, grunting here and there.
it’s so danish it hurts, all this ~group luvvv~ and ~co-operationzzz~
most of us are in our 20s and it was just like going back to kindergarten :I
i can get on board with the ball throwing game. fine. with our names. it’s enabling and ice-breaking, i see that. but making us all make a poster TOGETHER after we’ve known one another for, like, 2 hours??? hahahahahahahahaha, yeah okay…. no. we’ve been dubbed Team Uphill cos it’s pretty fucking uphill getting us all engaged.
ngl i wasn’t trying v hard either.
the most annoying part is that it’s mandatory to turn up at 8:15am COS WE HAVE TO EAT BREAKFAST TOGETHER. for crying out loud, we’re adults, we eat food from home :I BUT WE CAN’T COME LATER COS IT’S MANDATORY. "it’s so nice having a cup of coffee and eating breakfast together"nah it ain’t. i’m not a morning person. leave me the ha-ell alone with my coffee and my cigarettes.
ja ja ja ja ja
a spanish person laughing or a german person during sex???
Finnish person struggling to remember what they were about to say next
IT’S 2 AM AND I’M NOT TIRED AND I’VE HAD BEER AND NOTHING’S HELPING. ugghhhh. FINE. i’m gonna roll into bed and hope for the best……… god i can’t believe i have to BE somewhere that early in the MORNING that i don’t even want to BE
good night… ish
duffmansean said: lower the intensity/reps until you hit a plateau, then bump it up? unless you’ve already done that, of course.
it’s 3x13 lunges, 3x12, squats, and 3x12, err, knee lifts (on your side, feet connected, thigh/knee-lifts) with a rubber band @ my knees and lifting myself so my hips don’t touch the ground. i do 12 of each for rounds of three so it’s not the same x36. (idk if that makes any sense to you???)
these are the exercises i got for starters when i went nearly 2 weeks ago and i asked if there were any breaks, like, 1 day off after 2 days of work-out or w/e, but there aren’t, and i fear that might be why? since there were breaks even in that 30 day challenge i did last year (sit- and push-ups) idk :/// i’m seeing the phys on tuesday so hopefully we can figure something out, maybe what’s causing the soreness immediately related to the exercises. the plan is to add onto these after all, but rn that’s a no-go.
doing my exercises every day is really starting to become a literal pain
it’s not an issue whenever i’m not doing them, but everything just immediately becomes sore once i start doing them :I phys said soreness is normal, and only problematic if it lasts for days, but it’s also just very hard to be bothered to do exercises that are 100x harder to do NOW than when i first started.
i didn’t roll out of bed until 3pm today and i have to get up at 6:50am tomorrow and i just know i’m not gonna get enough sleep
starting JUMP tomorrow, which is basically pathfinder, but luckily only 8:30-11:30, so fewer hours. but ugh. my lack of interest can’t even be measured.
