Octopus' Garden

I woke up with this song in my head and kept humming the same first line over and over again while at the gym today.  "I'd like to be under the sea/in an octopus' garden..."

Aside from that I've got nothing much to post. Today was supposed to be a rest day, but work and life commitments on Wednesday means I'm too busy to workout or even run so I've swapped Wednesday's CT session for today's rest day. I did a relaxed 30 minutes on the elliptical at level 10 and a slow pace followed by 30 minutes on the reclining fixed bicycle-thing at a fat burning level.

I've got 9 weeks until my 10k race so I've worked out a training schedule which I'm going to try and post. It's unleashed the geeky side in me and I colour the cell green when I've done the session and note far/fast etc as well as how I felt afterward.

Anyone else do anything like that to log exercise?

ETA: To add further detail, the schedule's based on the Advanced Beginner 10k training with an interval training session once a week.


  1. I like a could plan and even better if it's colour-coded! I'm following the Zest 10k plan at the moment, but when I've finished with that I'll probably make up my own, complete with coloured cells :-)

  2. Zest looks interesting I'll have to check it out.

  3. Oh I am a BIG fan of the coloured in excel spreadsheet. Super geeky with weekly and total mileage, notes, etc. You can get lost in those things for hours though, so beware!
