if only we could cycle rather than run…

realised today that if this was a cycling event we would be fine! Would do it no problem as did 15 miles today no problem, despite my lack of breaks (they decided to stop working this morning so I have to repair them tonight). Really need to get back onto this running thing… cycling is all well and good but totally different muscles to running so not really helping as much as you’d expect.

 

AND I REALLY NEED TO GO SWIMMING! The water based obstacles are starting to worry me a little… need to get to a pool soon I thinks, good exercise anyway

so stress has killed training slightly

been very stressed recently as got to move home again (long story) and this has seemingly pulled out some of the moore aspergery aspects of my brain… and so training has gone a little squiffy, as has socialising with people, and most day to day activities… Actually fear I may end up losing some friends by the end of this “episode”… Usually manage to hide most of the symptoms fairly well, other than saying the wrong thing and not always understanding phrases thing, but recently I can’t look at people properly, I can never do eye contact but I can usually at least look at peoples faces, I can’t cope with plans changing, and every time I am around people I am having sensory overloads.

It’s getting slightly annoying :/

However, despite this I plan to at least go for a few runs this week. Even if they are on my own as dealing with people isn’t great right now


back to the training

so, after a week of moving home and so neglecting training (though moving furniture up and down stairs was a fairly good work out lol) I am now back to the training thing.

today did 2 hours at the gym and then went for a run, which was interesting as I had to create a new route round and area that I do not know that well… so only 3miles today, need to make a longer route once I figure my way about…

I also plan to go climbing 3 times this week as I am now working need the bouldering wall 2 days a week so am thinking I may go after work.

erm… that’s it really, bit of a boring update 😛


I may have gotten slightly wet lol

so.. today it is raining… and my running partner is ill, so I thought “meh, I’ll go for a short run anyway”

 

 

well… I may have gotten a little wet…

still… going to have the get used to the wet and mud anyway 😛


this weeks training

this weeks training went a little off as my running partner was called into work on Monday. However, climbing today went well 🙂 and I have been tot he gym for an hour a day for the last 3 days.

thinking need to learn to not be so competitive though as on Monday when I went after the cardio I went to the weight machines and found the leg press had been left on 105kg so, rather than being sensible and putting it down to my usual 85kg, I foolishly tried the 105kg. I did manage 5 reps though 😀 so next week going up to 90kg I think

running is now happening on Friday this week 🙂 so will see how that goes.

Then I am moving home on Saturday lol


so I need to get into the habit of updating this lol

I have failed a little at updating this, but I am getting back into it now. I am now a member of team Iron Clan, and have started training properly. Myself and one other team member went for a 7 mile run on Monday, and we are making it a weekly event. Also going climbing (well, bouldering) tonight which is also a weekly training session. I am also getting back into the gym, doing a fair bit of strength training, though after Monday thinking I need to start working on my cardio again lol

I also got sent this video in an e-mail about a team in America which thought I would share:
