Physical endeavours, week 5

My twin 101-in-1001 projects (Air Alert 3 and hand walking) have now been running for five weeks and it is time for the fifth report (see report 1, 2, 3, 4). These endeavours are fairly different in that Air Alert 3 is a fully developed training programme, whereas my hand walking is more or less improvised (the goal being to walk 100 metres). Now over some thoughts on the fifth week.

To start with, this report comes a bit early because I have something else for tomorrow, which has got nothing to do with physical activities. Anyway, the week has been fairly good. I managed to finish week 4 of Air Alert without too much pain involved (it was tough, but in a healthy manner). I have not been able to measure a Sargent Jump, so that will have to be postponed to next week. The number of repetitions and sets is steadily increasing and I can feel a difference at least in endurance. However, that is not the goal of the training programme, so we will just have to wait and see how much the actual height is affected.

When it comes to hand walking, I have used a somewhat different strategy compared to earlier weeks, mainly because of practical circumstances. After having realised that walking a hundred metres requires a lot of endurance, I have changed to walking longer distances with less rest. I have also reintroduced static exercises again, mostly because it is convenient and can be done wherever I happen to be. As a result of this, I have only walked 169 metres this week (compared to 666 last week). On the other hand, I was able to walk 62 metres using only three attempts with one minute rest between each, which is much better than 106 metres in 10 attempts. The other 107 metres are made up of two more attemts at walking 50 metres in as few attempts as possible (52 and 55 metres, both in 3 attempts with 1 minute rest between attempts).

I will be away from home next week, and even if I intend to continue with Air Alert, I presume that I will not be as ambitious as usual with the hand walking. Anyway, here is a summary of the fifth week:

Accomplished Air Alert 3, week 4
Sargent Jump: Not available
Walked 169 metres (27 max) on my hands
Walked 62 metres in 3 attempts with 1 minute rest
Stood 3 times 2 minutes on my hands with plenty of rest
