Motivation for fatcats and possibly fatcat chumlies.

Don't ask me how I feel right now. Arp. That is all I am going to say. Just arp... and also 'ack' Medbh will understand that.
Sunday 20k- sunny, met a boxer called Carlin who carries a ball with him at all times, not for his owner to throw but just to have. Daft, lovely dogs.

Squats! Ass to the floor squats,

Monday- nope, not really practiced more free squats,

Tuesday- Gym, ran 4 sets of 400m, under 2 mins each one. 400 metres slower pace interspersed between.

Weights, 30 pull ups grav at 20k, don't know why but my arms felt slightly tired,
Cable cross, 6.5k 10 x x3.
Thrusters, 25k 10x 3

reclined over heads lift using 10k wheel. did 30 of those. Only way I can do those without hurting my lower back is by tensing every muscle I have, so it's very very good for a core work out I find.

Finished with a decent 15 minute stretching session.

Wednesday- 12k, terrible, slow, laborious, just wasn't feeling it. My shoulders felt tight and my left leg ached. Bah.

thursday- pfft.

Friday-double pfft.

Satdee. Ack.

Tomorrow is long run day. May the Lord I don't actually believe in have mercy on my wanton hoochy filled soul.
I ought to be not gadding about and running more, this week shows just how easy it is to slither off the path of good intentions. Next week I'll have to cop myself on a bit. And by cop myself on I mean stop fucking drinking like I'm on a god damned cruise ship.

Gadding about is fine. It's the ungaddening the following day that breaks my heart.

You too huh? I should probably suffer in silence but fat chance of that happening.

Love the cruise ship metaphor, FMC.

I had to stop a cheeky puppy from swallowing whole the bag of treats she pulled from my purse in the park last nght. Her owner was clueless. Gross.

Exercise, shmexercise. I did okay this week, the usual.

Monday - nothing
Tuesday - early morning cardio, lunges with weights, sit ups, ab wheel.
Tuesday - same, only different. CArdio, squats, some leg lifts.
Thursday - cardio, more ab stuff, weeping quietly.

FRIDAY - don't normally work out, but I can't this weekend because we're traveling, so I DID. I DID get up and did 20 minutes cardio and a bunch of lunges with weights, donkey kicks, ab wheel, etc.

Today and tomorrow we'll be in Portland Maine, watching baseball, and drinking...basically drinking our way through the Old Port and back again.

Sunday I shall probably feel as though I've had a stroke. We'll see about working out Monday morning to offset, but that's highly unlikely, don't you think?

Using my AWESOME powers of 'futuresight' I can safely say Andraste my old Bunny, Monday might NOT be the exercise day you plan it to be. Something in me waters tells me so.

Medbh, she was lucky you were paying attention.]

The paramour informs me leaving olive oil in the fridge causes 'death crystals' to form. I have no real answer to that.

But they're still not as deathy as the butter.

S0-so week for me. Kids on Summer holidays so i can't get to the gym much. Can't say I'm that bothered, this week, if I'm honest - I've a couple of household projects on the go and I want to finish them by Monday.

not much of a week for me, but at least stuck to my running - good thing, seeing as there's a 5K looming in september.

monday - spent the day cleaning the house, working in the garden, and fighting with an incompetent electrician.

tuesday - rode to work and back, ran a mile

wednesday - rode to work, caught a ride home as it was a hail storm.

thursday - ran a mile

friday - rode to work, caught a ride home due to yet another hail storm

saturday - ran a mile, and loads of work in the garden.

who knows what next week will bring?

That's a busy week, Conan. You rest up now this weekend.

It was just one of those weeks wasn't it? I started well but ti just piddled out. Even in the gym I felt a little tired.

Twenty, I foresee a little light bicep & beer work later.

FMC - I have been reading the MFFAPFC posts for a while and still I'm beside myself with awe and envy (mainly because I'm a lazy shitehawk). These workouts are frickin' Olympian to me. Even that last one. Wonder is the domain available?

Leigh, I so thank you very kindly indeed, ESPECIALLY, after a lazy assed week such as this one. Next week will be better, I swear it.

Jesus, but that's just so boring, a gym bore is the worst kind

Even more boring that people who comment on stuff that doesn't interest them? Hard to believe.

Any chance you could include what treadmill speeds you do?

Depends LG, for 400s I push it up to 12.5 or 13.0 which is fast for me. Bit slower on the eight 800s and if I'm just covering distance I always start at 8.6 and cover the rest at about a steady 10kmh.
Personally I prefer to run outside these days but I've only just recently found out where there is a running track that covers 400m perfectly. I'll give that a bash next.

hey FMC! I've been training like a lunatic and I've been unwell too so not a good combination. Did my first actual triathlon last Saturday and the swim was a disaster. I seem to have a problem in open water that I'll have to get over pretty quickly. Was a bit shaken but got through the cycle and run. A few tears were shed afterwards (relief that it was over!)I've got six weeks to sort out my open water swimming....scary!

Hope all's good with you and the long run went well. :-)

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop,
just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now
destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off
topic but I had to share it with someone!
