I've been doing more of my boxing workouts lately, I did one on Tuesday;
8 x 2 minutes (30s heavy bag, 30 sec plyometric jumps x 2)
That absolutely killed my legs, as in they're still hurting.. my poor calves!
and one today;
Heavy bag 6 x 2 minutes
Followed by a circuit; 20 seconds on each station then 1 minute rest before repeating the circuit.
- Shrugs (10kg in each hand)
- Jumping Jacks
- Upright Rows (10kg barbell)
- High Knee Dumbell Press
- Chair Dips
- Mountain Climbers
- Dumbell Punches
- Leg Raises
- Clean and Push Press (10kg barbell)
I want to give a quick work and uni update too... Work is pretty much the same, I've gone to a person higher up in the company to contest the wages they are paying me, if she sorts it out I will stay, if she doesn't I will leave. I'm so angry about it all, it seems that because jobs are so few and far between that they think they can do what they like.
I tried to do my masters application online to find the website wouldn't let me so I emailed the admissions person about it... They had closed applications early this year due to high demand. I was absolutely gutted at the time but now I've had a few days to think about it I don't feel so bad. I started looking at my other options and found a degree course on mental health nursing. I wanted to go into social work to work with people with mental health problems so actually this course is far better suited to me. I spoke with admissions today and they are also full for the September start but run a course beginning February 2011. I can wait til then.. so long as I get on... As long as I have something that I'm working towards I'll feel better. I feel a bit in limbo career wise at the moment. My music is not working out and I certainly won't stay in retail. I hope I get on to the course, I need something to aim for!
Now... some good news!
