At rugby practice we did more fitness training. We did pyramid runs which was meant to increase our muscular endurance. Wednesday I went to the gym and I found it hard to do all five sets of ten pull ups but I managed to do them all but I had to give myself an extra minute interval. After the 3rd and 4th set. Thursday Today I skipped for 5 minutes nonstop without tripping.
