Getting eating habits refined and directed towards healthier foods is critical in weight loss or fitness program. I’m not a professional nutritionist or dietitian but I know inherently what is good for my body and so do most everyone else. It’s simply the choices we make that determine our results. These muffins are not very […]
I need to find a nutritionist who can help me refine my diet. I need to get military on this. At the moment I’m picking up some good habits and maintaining others I’ve adopted over the years but what I need is to take a more professional approach so the search is on.
Getting the diet right is big. I genuinely am amazed at the lack of serious attention Race organisers give to nutrition before and after events. Mars Bars, Sugary Drinks, Jellies, Sweets, White Bread Sandwiches with crappy cheap filling, it’s incredible. I understand organiser need sponsorship to get races off the ground but it seems to […]
I like the opportunity to go through things I have planned and refine them. I get some good ideas and inspirations when I run. Running for me is a form of meditation, a chance to disconnect from so called “reality”.
Today’s Training Today worked out good. I managed to hit a 1RM on the Snatch 63kg, and the Clean & Jerk 80kg. I was especially happy with the Clean & Jerk considering I struggled to Clean 75kg a couple of weeks previous. I am definitely getting stronger and seeing the benefit in my running pace. […]
The Training Plan Many endurance athletes from my observation, feel that training must consist of hours and hours of long slow running in order to prepare for an ultra or multi-discipline event, or even a marathon. I’m not buying that. My training is an experiment in proving a theory. The Theory There are professional trainers […]
Today’s Training No CrossFit this morning. Tonight was an 8 miler in The Phoenix Park, well, 7.76 miles to be exact. There’s a couple of climbs involved around the back of the 40 acres, the rear of the Magazine Fort and up Khyber Road so a bit of a test going at a good pace […]
Today’s workout The conditioning element was tough but enjoyable this morning. After yesterday’s squatting the leg work today was that little bit tougher. Pull ups, one of my favourites, killed me on the time so I needed the full duration to complete, otherwise I moved pretty well through the drills. Cleaning 80kg is not an […]
If you were to browse the articles on the site here, you would be forgiven for thinking this was a Crossfit Blog, but it’s not. It’s a kick ass marathon blog! I’ve chosen specifically to work this way, to keep the miles low and form a foundation with Crossfit because I want strength work to […]
Today’s Training Today was a test day at the gym. 15 minutes to establish a 1RM Clean & Jerk. 30 minutes to establish a 1RM High Bar Back Squat. My 1RM on the Clean & Jerk is 75kg and I didn’t get beyond this today. On the Back Squat I was hoping for a 140kg and my Front Squat […]
