R11D48 – Days Off Work

Tags: ,

I usually take my birthday off work since there is nothing I want to do less than be at the office on my birthday. This year I took off Thursday and Friday and took the opportunity to do some hybrid cardio workouts involving the treadmill intervals. I did a 45 minute workout on Thursday with […]

R11D22-23 – Shoulder Good, Coordination Not So Much

Tags: , ,

My plan was to take Sunday off as a day of rest in case I had actually done something bad to my shoulder and then to go straight back to the same routine to see if it held up. I left the bar at 135lbs and planned the following: 5×5 Deadlift 5×5 Hang Clean 5×5 […]

R11D15-18 – Work Rate, MMA and Sick Child Obstacles

Tags: , , , ,

2 days off with a sick child could drive anyone crazy. Hours on hours of Timmy Time and Shaun The Sheep interspersed with bouts of a bored 3 year old trying to find something to do which in case you are wondering is a VERY dangerous proposition. I am glad to say though that I […]

R11D10 – Accidental Beta

Tags: ,

I seem to have had post fright in 2013. Apparently I posted a measly 72 posts in 2013 as compared to 143 in 2012. Let’s hope I can do a better job in 2014. Last night I had to go by memory and of course it all went horribly wrong. As I started the T25 […]

R11D5-7 – The Weekend

Tags: , ,

R11D4 – Active Rest? That’s Speed 1.0

Tags: , ,

I caught up with Speed 1.0 last night and I can only hope that is is deliberately slow and easy in order to contrast with Speed 2.0 and 3.0. It was, if I am honest, like a day off. I suppose it’s kind of an introduction to Interval Agility training with speedy agile movements mixed […]

R11D2 – Maybe I’m Crazy. P90X3 + T25. Plus Free Rant!

Tags: , , , , ,

So I managed finally to get my hands on P90X3 and instead of thinking that I would just do the thing alone I am thinking that maybe I can do a hybrid of T25 with P90X3 until I have gone through every workout in both just to see what they are like. On Monday I […]

Steep Hill To Climb – R11D1 – T25 Base Round

Tags: , ,

Our December trip to Cuba (Royal Hicacos) was fantastic, I was able to run on the beach, work out every day and have the best fresh food to eat whenever I needed. This was a really big deal for me since after my surgery I have not run at all for fear of hurting my back. As […]
