Learn from my mistakes!
Did my chin ups 4 sets of 3. Was tough.
One thing about running…you don’t have to clean a bike in the fucking rain. Currently cleaning my bike in the fucking rain.
Being able to comfortably do a 3rd world squat is actually really fucking useful
Yep, saves fcuking up your knees when changing brake pads on a car.
Or lubing a bike chain in a wet garden
My two daughters are taking over my diet as from today - they don’t think I’m losing weight quickly enough…
Move out Jim, fast!
Whichever is the easiest
My two try playing food police every now and then. Doesn’t last!
As long as you haven’t stalled and are still losing weight then slow but steady is best.
Hmmm i are disappoint. Only managed 20 push ups today. I’d hoped after two days rest I would have had a wee jump, but naw.
Yesterday’s ride ended up being harder than I’d intended, because I got chatting to a couple of other cyclists and a bit carried away riding with them,
My legs feel full of fatigue…
Keeping things in perspective…
My goal might be 30+ push ups by end of the year, but I have maintained the strength to do at least 3x10 for the entire year since I built up to that. I didn’t manage that last year.
My bodyweight has been pretty stable at 65-67kg since I got back down to that in the spring.
I can run 5k- couldn’t do that at the start of the year. I haven’t been able to do that for about 10 years!
I’ve been able to do at least one chin up for most of the year
I’ve built up to and maintained a level of cycling fitness that’s enabled me to do the club rides, and pretty much anything else that I’ve fancied- without feeling messed up or unfocused at work or home, or burning out.
Gonna be visiting this way twice a week soon then Jim?
Looks like too much overall work fatigue.
Two quick questions -
- Did you consistently up your daily protein intake?
- Did you get 8 hrs sleep a night on a consistent basis?
- Yes and 2) no
Sleep is one area where my lifestyle has room for improvement
Last night for e.g. I was in bed for 8 hours but I wasn’t asleep for all of them- it took time to get to sleep then was a bit broken by daughter getting up, and I was awake/dozing for 30 mins or so before i got up
Yet another way in which our society is really really fucking unhealthy
