28 Mar 2013 – Forever Autumn

  nice early start again today, so it was back down the gym for a 10km row. not the fastest 10km ever, could definitely still feel the effect of yesterday’s “legs” session. still, 10km rowed is still 10km rowed, and it helped loosen up some residual stiffness from the past few days or so. summary […]

  well, despite not being so badly shattered by the long run yesterday, I still managed to sleep through until 4:30am. Actually I did wake about 1am, but figured that was a tad early for the gym, even for me! a 3km riverside walk reminded me that my legs had taken a battering yeserday, but […]

I guess I’ll live 🙂 apart from […]

01 Mar 2013 – F.E.A.R.

  didn’t go so well today gym-wise. woke up full of motivation and confidence, and figured that after successfully doing 6.5km at 10km/h last week, I should give 11km/h a go. I lasted 2km, and was stuffed. after that I covered the remaining 4.5km alternating between 6km/h walking and 11km/h running. too much. too soon. […]
