What do u think I've been doing!?!

Apparently it's finally listening, I may well have been a little over zealous yesterday though by starting my normally already gym rat fit 12 week German Body Conditioning Programme when I am very far from being gym rat fit....

Yesterday was pretty much every variation of squat known to man with chins, curls, CrossFit situps and Glute Ham Developers thrown in just to focus the pain somewhere else in between the squats...

Reckon by the time next September swings around I should be half the person I am today!

Ohhhh ????   Perhaps I should meet her, we could come to some sort of an arrangement ??

SD do you really need to do those bike rides? Yep
Are they more important that your goal of IM? Nope



Hello Gas where you been? Have you signed up for an IM yet?

Morning

I have a sportive this weekend ... how did that happen?

We have a Bourbon Chase date for 2013.  As you recall, that's the 200 mile, 12 person overnight relay along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.  October 18/19.  Who's coming over?

Starting P90x this morning.  Looking for something different over the winter.  Hope it doesn't kill me!

Yank - I'm really tempted! Was thinking about Chicago marathon as an end to the season, but this would do instead!

15/10/2012 at 14:49

Well Raf, I'm doing Chicago as well!

Not sure finances would stretch to both......

If you had to pick one, I'd say Chicago.  My pal just ran it and said it was killer.

I'm very tempted by that IY, but not next year. Maybe 2014. Hmmmmm, I seem to vaguely remember saying that about IM at some point in the dim and distant past.

1850m in the pool today.  A mixture of stuff, and trying to concentrate on my technique.  And I didn't have any chocolate afterwards

Cake and SD - guinea pig testing commences on 27th won't know if I make the cut until mid November so not going to be booking anything until I know the result .... So it could still be Barca at this stage only another month to wait

God I hope not Melds, and I'll have to make I can at least walk... Normal aflete stuff I think, drug testing, vo2 max, blood lactic, ECG etc etc as well as psychological stuff I think

Psychological testing on you ?  Bloody hell,  they're brave.

I think he may have meant Psychiatric testing - easily confused terms to the lay-person

Doing IM in a straitjacket would be a neat trick

Thanks Cake.  I know it's because she wants me to do well and look after myself in the process.  I am adopting the "smile and nod" approach, but I just needed to offload somewhere neutral, so that I don't blow a fuse at her!
