15-20 nov 2012: woman of the earth

not quite sure what happened, but the blogging stopped early on wednesday and has subsequently been nudged out by more pressing things. not too much has happened between 15th and 20th anyway – here’s a summary: I went for a run on thursday (15th) – was very pleased with my pace for the first 4km […]

14 nov 2012: eighth day

  rowing day today, got a reasonably early start, opted for a 10km row and an early bus into the city… feeling surprisingly free of the worst of the aches and pains now, so the body must be recovering from the “ordeals”I’ve put it through lately! the main issue at the moment is tiredness – […]

  so, quick catchup with the past week… “battered, tired and worn out” was the net result of the marathon row, then the body pump session. it’s made me realise more than ever that my only real obstacles now are to do with the physical mechanics (i.e. my bones, muscles and joints can cope) and […]

  another lie-in today – didn’t get up until 4:30am! no gym this morning as i will be meeting britt later for a weigh-in, measure and training session. haven’t had a proper weigh and measure for a while, so it will be good to establish where we’ve got to so far. the weight seems to […]

04 nov 2012: the row must go on

last night was our regular family dinner, and i cooked up an italian feast consisting of antipasto, spaghetti marinara and tiramisu. the beers and wine flowed as well. i had every intention of doing a full session at the gym this morning, sweat out the “bad” stuff and give myself a great start to the […]

yay! managed an early start to the day (just after 3am) which meant i got in a decent gym session and still managed to get the early early bus into Perth! held the 10km/h pace reasonably comfortably for the 500m jog intervals, so i was pleased about that. slept for most of the bus trip […]

01 nov 2012: it’s too late

woke up just after 2am again… the next time i opened my eyes it was too late to do anything, so i opted to get ready for work and catch the early early bus. still tired, despite a nap on the bus, headache, aches… hopefully not another cold creeping up – if it is then […]
