Project Competition Ready: Day 12

Yesterday was a weird day. I felt like I was wading through treacle and just wanted to hibernate yesterday. Actually come to think of it I didn’t feel like I was literally wading through treacle, that would be horribly sticky! I did feel sluggish and all forward progress was like pushing against something though. In…… Continue reading Project Competition Ready: Day 12

Janathon 2021 day 13-16: a migraine…

After Tuesday’s progress, I only managed to walk on Wednesday followed by nothing on Thursday or Friday… this was due to what turned out to be my first migraine in over a year! It took me until Wednesday lunchtime to give in but then I slept for quite a lot of hours! The good news…… Continue reading Janathon 2021 day 13-16: a migraine…

Janathon 2020 Day 5: bench press, yoga and cats!

Today is more or less as simple as it says in the title! None of my exercise happened in the morning today, I decided that sleep was important! There was a bit of an amble around at lunchtime, but the main exercise events took place after work. First we made our way down to the…… Continue reading Janathon 2020 Day 5: bench press, yoga and cats!

What is the plural of Stoltman?

Stoltmen? Stoltpeople? Stoltmans… I think it is probably Stoltmans, but that just sounds wrong. I might just cut my losses and refer to them as Tom and Luke Stoltman, just to be on the safe side… You may be wondering why this blog post seems somewhat more rambling than normal. Well, it is just one…… Continue reading What is the plural of Stoltman?

The battle of the viking press, and other non scale victories

Just before lockdown I started to win the battle of the viking press… It was an epic battle started many moons ago when I first started training with Matt. My first encounter with this infernal contraption made me realise I was extremely uneven when it came to strength and that I had *really* been neglecting…… Continue reading The battle of the viking press, and other non scale victories

Project Lockdown Fitness: Day 75 & 77 – I’m not grumpy, I’m tired

I’m not grumpy I am tired was my tagline for monday this week. It wasn’t true as it happens, I was grumpy, and tired… It has been that sort of week so far tbh, my sleep has been somewhat broken and wierd and I have woken up feeling like I haven’t slept at all. This…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Day 75 & 77 – I’m not grumpy, I’m tired

Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 59 – 71 – photographic round up and the start of Juneathon

No new paddingtons in this post…they can’t happen every week, sadly! Or every 2 weeks, as this blog covers two weeks… There have been some pretty excellent workouts though and some even better non scale victories 😀 Instead of a big list of all the exercise I have done I am going to put my…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 59 – 71 – photographic round up and the start of Juneathon

Project lockdown fitness: Days 56 & 57 – two days two new paddingtons

Well, this system seems to be working!! By system I do of course mean this business of consistently doing the lifting that is set down on my programme and the workouts set by Mr Shaun T. By working, I mean I am definitely getting stronger! I can tell, because I can lift heavier things more…… Continue reading Project lockdown fitness: Days 56 & 57 – two days two new paddingtons

Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 52-55 – Warning, there is a lot of colour coordination in here!

It is ridiculous how much I now colour coordinate with the shed gym! I swear it wasn’t on purpose! Its just that I really like orange at the moment…and it just happens that quite a bit of the gym kit we have managed to get hold of is orange… Of course my hair is orange…… Continue reading Project Lockdown Fitness: Days 52-55 – Warning, there is a lot of colour coordination in here!

Project lockdown fitness: Days 44-49 mostly photos…

I said I wasn’t going to do posts that cover lots of days at the moment, because a) all the days are confusing, and 2) all the days are so full of training that these posts could become extremely long, and fairly repetitive… so I will break it down into picture collections which cover the…… Continue reading Project lockdown fitness: Days 44-49 mostly photos…
