Physical endeavours, week 7

My twin 101-in-1001 projects (Air Alert 3 and hand walking) have now been running for seven weeks and it is time for the seventh report (see report 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6). 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 seventh week.

As foretold last week, this week proved to be somewhat more ambitious (which does not say very much, considering how little I did last week). As for Air Alert, I have done all three sessions this week without too much trouble. It is demanding, but it is not that bad, especially for odd weeks when it is performed Monday-Wednesday-Friday. I have decided to remove the last exercise, the squat hops, since they seem to do more harm than they do good. They were supposed to be done only on Wednesdays, so I do not think that the removal will affect the overall outcome in any serious manner (except for the positive effect of removing an exercise which does not feel alright) .

As seems to be normal, I have also changed strategy for hand walking, going back to walking long distances. I have made three attempts to walk a hundred metres in as few attempts as possible, the best being 110 metres in 6 attempts. I will consider walking more than a hundred metres in the future, since I really need to build up strength if I want to pull this one off. Gradually increasing with about ten metres per week might do the job, but we will see about that.
