Project Energise: Days 30 to 52 (and beyond) – Five Oaks Fitness and other momentous changes

Project Energise: Days 28 & 29 – Its all about the running

Ok, you know by now that of course it is not all about the running. But running is important to this particular update. Partly because I did some and partly because 6 years ago on Monday I did a lot and I thought it was worth a mention. First off Monday, I went out for…… Continue reading Project Energise: Days 28 & 29 – Its all about the running

Project Energise: Days 22 to 27 still (hard) going

This week has been hard work. I have been moving but not as intensely as I was in the previous week. Not as intensely as I would like really, because I know the more I do the better I feel. This much I have proven to myself over and over, and, with exercise at least…… Continue reading Project Energise: Days 22 to 27 still (hard) going

Project Energise: Day 16 – 21 this week in pictures

We all knew it would come to this 🙂 A round up post with lots of pictures, that is… I mean it happens every time I do a project like this because sometimes life gets in the way of blogging. Luckily for me, I have managed to stop it getting in the way of exercise…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 16 – 21 this week in pictures

Project Energise: Days 14 & 15 Focus on the legs

Well, legs and cardio, but the cardio also involved legs. It was a run, running (for me at least) involves my legs. I’ll start with the run, mainly because it happened first. Although this is not always the case, I do tend to stray from the chronological these days. And the point, I seem to…… Continue reading Project Energise: Days 14 & 15 Focus on the legs

Project Energise: Day 11 – 13 getting back to the shed gym

So, I seem to finally be managing to find the motivation / will power to get back to the big heavy lifting workouts that have been conspicuously absent from recent weeks! Of course I enjoyed them once I got going, I knew I would I just needed to find the impetus to start. Which means…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 11 – 13 getting back to the shed gym

Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Day 10 of Project Energise, I finally made it back to the shed gym, on my own to restart my slightly forsaken strongperson training programme! I restarted the Stoltman programme that I started this time last year, because it is simple (but not easy!) and it really works! So I headed down to the (still…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 10 Lots of squats!

Project Energise: Days 8 & 9 still moving!

Well, life is still getting in the way of the bigger workouts I really want to get back to doing, but I am not letting that stop me any more! In true PWG and Project Energise style I am still finding ways to move about in the gaps that I do have, and even that…… Continue reading Project Energise: Days 8 & 9 still moving!

Project Energise: Day 7 running again…

Running is not my thing, or so I claim repeatedly, but throughout this whole blog I run. I am not always consistent, I am a sporadic runner at best, but as I said at some point last year, like it or not, I am a runner… In case this is not obvious… I went out…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 7 running again…

Project Energise: Day 6 a sandbag

I have a new toy to aid with my strongwoman training. it is a sandbag… with sand in It is a Mirafit 50 – 75kg sandbag which is the smallest one they do… It only has 40kg of sand in it, which makes it too floppy to handle easily. The plan was to use this…… Continue reading Project Energise: Day 6 a sandbag
