Stats: 8 Jan – 14 Jan

Running – Did it! Grand total of 10km for the week (better planning will see that improve)

Gymming – Did it! Another good PT session. Will likely stop once my sessions I’ve already paid for are done so I can focus on the running and running specific workouts.

Strength and mobility – More Week 0 work. I’ve got my full plan for the next six weeks now and first official session will be Tuesday.

Goal for next week – stay on the plan, improve my updates!


Stats: 1 Jan – 7 Jan (first week of 2018!)

Week one of the new year! Surely it’s all sunshine and roses and high motivation? Meh, not so much.

I’ve been on holidays from work for the past couple of weeks and it’s been lovely. But man, do I need structure in my days or it all just falls apart.

Things that have been going well:

  • Food prep – I should have so much food ready for when I go back to work that I won’t need to cook for months!!

    Awesome chicken! Brined, spiced and grilled. And plenty in the freezer for later. YUM!!
  • Strength training – I had a terrific gym session on Thursday. Going into it I was feeling a bit blah but was rocking life by the end. And then I signed up for a program with Drew and Tina at Running for Real. So far, I’ve been hitting my Week 0 exercises to set me up for when I get my custom program. And it’s not really new news but foam rolling out my legs has reminded me of how terrible my quads and calves are!! Not to mention my highly inflexible feet!!! But that’s why we do these things, isn’t it?

And that’s it. Yes, there’s an absence of running there. No proper reason. Just sheer holiday laziness. Expect better things next week.
