09 Sep 2012: Fire


Cracked Britt’s “Triathlon Challenge” today, which was fairly pleasing. Very sweaty at the end of it but felt pretty good, recovered within a very short time. It was muscle fatigue and aches that was the limiting factor, the cardio system was willing and probably able to carry on.

A few aches and tiredness throughout the day – overall though I have felt surprisingly good. The fitness regime is clearly working.

I weighed 119.1kg when I got to the gym, and 118.1kg when I left. I drank about 2 litres of water while I was there, so that’s about 3 litres sweated out!
