Arvo guys

What: 1 hr intervals on the treadie. (2 mins on, 30 secs of and 60 secs off between sets of 4).

Why: trying to find a routine again

Lyrics: nope

Really struggling will silly pool opening times in winter and tiredness after work. I know I should be training more than I am. I have 4 long shifts coming up (9am till 11pm). You don't even get a break to eat, you eat as you work. Need to get the motivation to get up early and train before the shift.. it will NOT happen after.

Good news though, weigh and stats today at the gym

51kg + 19.7% body fat. Give or take for error, the last time I was 21% BF so have at least dropped that and a kilo odd. No real change, actually haven't been eating all that well really.

Chunky- I am doing Exmoor 70.3 (same as you right?), If I survive and like that then I will attempt a full Ironman in Canberra Aussie, when I go home.

G'day all

incline run on the treadie and then loads of glute work tonight. On the mission.

LMH- Have you seen the post-op x-ray? it was a plate that was used yes? Crack on with the physio and see what happens. In my experience (which isn't huge but getting there!), clavicular # are usually good to rehab, from memory I think you ruptured a few ligaments as well didn't you? Have the docs/physios given you a prognosis regarding sports?

Gobi- Sounds lovely to me

40- I was thinking of entering as well  

Pammie- Hey matey! great weight loss!

Afternoon mateys!

Don- 5 min miles?!? D a m n, that is so inspirational! 

Blisters- Agreed with the break, I do hate that feeling when all the passion seems to have disappeared. Can you mix it up with different sports or maybe find a good novel and chill out for a few days.

Wabo- I second the machine comment!

Stickless- I have entered the ironman 70.3 in Exmoor next year. Absolutely terrified but I have discovered I am not a half hearted person!!

LMH- What is the limiting factor for you in terms of the swimming? Range of movement or pain? 

Gobi- Your days seem like my heaven! How do you recover to do it all again the next day?


What: For me today will be a swim and more bum work

Why: Really trying to build better glutes to improve my running.

Lyrics: Annoyed that I didn't get yesterdays as I know the song! Today's feel familiar. Anyone been listening to Ed Sheerans new album... he is very talented. A mate of mine knows him, but I haven't had the pleasure. 

Keep breathing and moving guys, you all rock socks!!

What: Run +/- swim and body pump tonight

Why: 70.3

Lyrics ; nope

Stickless- Sorry to hear life is a struggle at the moment, keep your head up, I hope you can keep popping in!

LMH- I get the method for T1 and the lacky bands (would need tri shoes anyway for that, as no hoop at the back on the cycle shoes. But beginning of T2 scares me. 

Dustin: haha I am beginning to agree! it just doesn't makse sense to me.. that's what you get for having short legs. It sucks!
