21-23 oct 2012: overload

“overload” is quite an apt word at the moment, it’s the reason why the journal entries have been intermittent and why I’ve even skipped the gym a few times in recent weeks. it is something that is being actively worked on…

anyway, i have actually been to the gym sunday, monday and today so i’ll tack on a quick gym session catch-up for sunday and monday.

as for today, you’ll notice that i’ve managed to fit in a couple of longer sessions this week so far. i will continue to do this where possible because they really do help move me towards the ultimate goal of running a marathon.

happy with this morning’s results – especially managing to get close to 1:30 again for a 500m row.
