Covid stopped play…

I mean not like it did in 2020 where the whole world stopped, but it stopped my play… and my work… and my ability to do anything much. All in all it was generally unpleasant and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. On top of that I had managed to go so long without catching…… Continue reading Covid stopped play…

Motivation by the truck load…

It may be obvious by the general lack of updates, that the mop of demotivation has reared its dank and musty head once more I have still been training, but it has been a little more sporadic than I would like, which means that, although I am making progress, it is slower than I want…… Continue reading Motivation by the truck load…

Comparison…

You must have heard the quote… Comparison it the thief of joyTheodore Roosevelt It is used (rightly) to stop people from constantly comparing themselves to others, especially others that they see on social media and through other highly curated lenses that only show life highlights! I firmly believe that comparing yourself to other people (unless…… Continue reading Comparison…

I’m so happy ’cause today I found my friends… https://www.youtube.com/embed/pkcJEvMcnEg They are not in my head!

On the days I work from home I get more sleep, and have more time in general for exercise so I fully intend to take advantage of that! I started taking advantage of that yesterday by taking…… Continue reading Project Competition Ready day 3

15 days and counting…

On the 23rd October 2020 I wrote this post: 1 month to go… Now, here we are 9.5 months later and I have less than 1 month to go… 15 days to be exact… half a month… 2 weeks tomorrow! I am experiencing a strange mixture of panic and complacency! I am definitely not as…… Continue reading 15 days and counting…

Last phase of the plan…

This is the hard one… I need to get more sleep! No idea how I am going to manage it. I mean I do know, in theory, I just have to go to bed earlier but it never seems to turn out as easy as that! I am getting used to getting up at 5am…… Continue reading Last phase of the plan…

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
