31 oct 2013 – i can only imagine

“tired” is probably the best way to describe me today. tired when i woke up. tired as i headed out to do my 1km intervals. my legs were tired doing that. then i slept the whole way to perth and was tired when i woke up! tough mudder recovery, hard intervals session on tuesday, more […]

so this morning the body rebelled and insisted on a rest day 🙂 it’s actually a good thing. instead of a cross-training day i ended up sleeping until just before 4am. having gone to bed at 8:30 last night, that’s a long sleep for me, and i needed it. overall i’m very pleased with the […]

wow this morning was tough. i woke up about 3am and my body hurt all over. battered, bruised, the blister under my left foot screaming “no, please don’t make me run 1km intervals today”. so i got up anyway, put on the running gear and headed out to smash out 4 x 1km intervals at […]

ok, so good news is that the cough seems to be gone. not-so-good news – i didn’t write any journal entries over the weekend, again. however… saturday i was doing tough mudder, and sunday i was recovering! i managed a 6.5km recovery run on sunday, and generally speaking i have pulled up ok, considering what […]

mud, mud, glorious mud

it seems so long ago that i agreed to join a tough mudder team. the last 6 months have marked so many milestones, heralded in so many changes from the “old me”, that it really seems as though a lifetime has passed by. metaphorically, it has. when i look back at that post, it was fairly […]

so the irritating cough struck again last night, and this time I didn’t wake until 4:15am! today is a running rest day, so I just got on with heading to the office. abs and push-ups can be done later… overall i think things are improving, it really is just the tickly irritating cough component that’s […]

thanks to the irritating cough keeping me awake last night, I didn’t surface until 3:15am today. fortunately it’s a rest day for abs AND push-ups. so just the 1km intervals needed doing. but the chesty cough wanted to play a part still. when i was doing the warm-up i could feel my chest tightening, and […]

today i did something a little different from usual, instead of heading into cubicle-land on the early bus, i took a later bus/train journey to an event called “big think”. this event was touted as a half day event for people who “think differently”, with 3 guest speakers and an opportunity to network. it was […]

23 oct 2013 – fill me up
