Well done MC , we're all set now!

SD - The chaps running the sufferfest sessions are histerical, you ought to try one. The main chap seems to think he's Jason Bradbury off the gadget show, I'm not sure if they're the generic sufferfest seesions or if he's customised them with his own sound track and motivational chants. There's a lot about keeping the chimp in his box.  I definitley want to go again.

Hi everyone

Bit mental at work, and mojo has been MIA for what feels like forever now but dragged lazy ass back to the gym yesterday for some strength training - result being walking is problematic today but went for a 1 hr ride in the hope that I might hurt less tomorrow

Not sure given how I feel this evening, tomorrow may well be a rest day

you know should always start training plans with a rest day! The Fizzy therapist has banned me from exercise!

The fizzy terrorists are all the same mate, but they may have a point!

Welcome back GT.

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

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!

Are they more important that your goal of IM? Nope

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

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.
