19 Sep 2012: In The Shadows

Notes Woke up quite late this morning, felt pretty crappy (aching and tired). Probably not helped by the house being full of sick and sniffly people at the moment! Anyway, net result was a decision to not hit the gym – instead I opted to do a couple of urgent client web site tasks. Summary […]

Something I never really considered when I started this “No More Mr Fat Guy” thing, is the fact that I now receive messages and emails asking for advice (mostly on how to get over the initial hump). I feel highly honoured and privileged that my story so far has triggered something in the minds of […]

Notes Was a mixed bag at the gym this morning; one one hand I was very happy with the time achieved for the 5km row, and the fact that my legs seemed to be cooperating. On the other hand, I didn’t finish the entire session. After the row, leg press and chest press I should […]

If you’ve been keeping up with No More Mr Fat Guy news, you will know that yesterday I took part in my first ever 10km fun run. This is the story of how the day unfolded… early to bed, early to rise I was determined that everything would go smoothly, I had no idea how […]

17 Sep 2012 – Transformation

Notes Woke up this morning feeling pretty good, a few aches and stiffness from yesterday’s 10km fun run, but overall in pretty good shape; the post-run stretching, maintaining hydration and a good night’s sleep appear to have done their job. Really nice bright, dry, sunny day today, so I headed to the bus with no […]

Notes Back down the gym this morning, some residual soreness and stiffness from the triathlon challenge – soon forgotten after a warm-up though. 5km row was a pleasing 10 seconds faster than last time – probably at the limit of what I can do currently (relatively comfortably) but will be interesting to see how the […]

Notes 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 […]

Notes Today’s mission was to do the 10km jog and 10km spin bike – a different two thirds of Britt’s “triathlon challenge”. This took on even more purpose having read yesterday, that the Fremantle Fun Run is on next weekend (Sep 16th). There is a choice of 5km and 10km so I wanted to see […]
