Today’s Training The conditioning element is continuous for 5 mins (then 7 mins muscle ups) and although it may look like an easy drill, it’s not. Now the instruction was not to kill ourselves however it still can be a tough little routine. Cruising through it at a pedestrian pace is not something I’m happy […]
Today’s Training After a long slow run on Sunday, the short sharp Crossfit routine is enjoyable. 06:30 Monday’s can be quiet and today was no different but good none the less to get up and at it before most other people. I wonder how many people make a gym visit first on their list for […]
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 […]

Legs get very tired but it’s great conditioning for a runner. I can feel the improvement on Muscle-ups, they are certainly coming easier now […]

Today’s sessions represented a bit of a test. Crossfit session was at 06:30 am followed by a day’s graft and a planned 16 miles in the evening. I knew I had to do it so no resistance was offered, in fact I was looking forward to seeing how the evening session would go.
Today’s Training Back in the gym this morning at 06:30. I’m up at 05:45 with gear ready the night before so I can get straight out the door. I used to struggle rising early but it’s become easier when there is a focus and a reason to do it. That’s not to say there hasn’t […]
