[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xn676-fLq7I&w=560&rel=0] bit of a lazy start to the day again, staying tucked up in the warm until about 3:15am – abs and push-ups will be done after work again. that was always the plan anyway for today, because i knew i would need all my energy for the seemingly simple 3 x 1km intervals. the […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdLVK4k-rxo&w=560&rel=0] another action-packed start to the day. abs, push-ups and a run. and a sense of excitement about heading into the office, knowing that today’s episode of NMMFG TV was going to be about THE RUN… the run this morning was basically a recovery run, i set out with no pace in mind, and only […]

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hT_nvWreIhg&w=560&rel=0] i headed down the gym for a simple session this morning. it’s abs challenge rest day, so i simply did my push-ups and a 5km row. i also weighed myself before training, half expecting a small gain (i’ve been constantly peckish since the half marathon). the number on the scale lit up my face.

[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_yx01pN3Ytw&w=560&rel=0] bright early start again this morning, perfect for a bit of abs work, followed by a gentle, easy-paced run in the cool dark of the morning. upper thighs a little sore after the run – they will get another low impact day tomorrow when i use the rowing machine. it’s not a “bad” sore, […]
