    ^My bike is in the bike store basement being stored for winter. They were nice enough to store it for me as I don't have a place to store it. I'll pick it up in spring.

    Congrats on the weight loss! Easy to get back into bad habits, isn't it? Lifestyle change is key.. start slowly for sure for your shoulder so you don't hurt it too much.

    Friday = squat, deadlift, bench press. Yesterday a short hike in the desert mountains (not Thailand). Today walking lunges holding a 45lb olympic plate, dumbell press, dumbell row, tricep pulldown. May have to abandon the squats because the aching old skeleton won't tolerate it.

    14km run in 65.5 minutes. I didn't feel particularly good today so I was a bit surprised at the time.

    ^ It's going to take me all week to get to 12.5 miles.....

    Still I'm happy with the pace 20:20 for my 2.5 this morning...May be up to 3 miles a day by the summer.

    ^ Good work, Troy. Progression is one of the keys to improvement. Bit by bit, increase one of the stress variables - time/distance, volume or speed. Best to choose one and stick to it. Then you'll be able to monitor progress more easily. When I'm building up, I tend to add 400metres per week to the length of each run. Sometimes it's more if I feel good, maybe half a mile, but mostly I find that a sure but steady regular 400m/quarter of a mile increase for each run a week increase is achievable and delivers the steady improvement that I want. One month sees an extra mile, 2 months 2 miles etc. Another way is to add time. One minute more per run per week, or two minutes. Whatever is appropriate. I'm sure you'll be running more than 3 miles by the summer. Only half a mile more to go and 16 weeks to do it. That's only 50m extra per week. I'm sure you'll be able to double that, or more. I predict you'll be easily running 4 miles by June.

    ^ Thanks for the morale booster. I am not really wanting to go beyond 3 miles due to time constraints so I will increase the resistance a little each week instead. The problem I'm having at the moment is keeping a pace such that I don't overdo it with the pulse rate.

    A couple of times I've quickened the pace too early and had to slow right down again.

    I prefer to finish off the last couple of minutes at a higher pace and then do a slower recovery for 2-3 minutes after the 2.5 miles has been reached. It means that I've already covered half the extra distance before I move to it.

    Operation lifestyle change has commenced:

    Gym 5 days a week

    Beer intake reduced

    Weening out those unnecessary cigarettes, ie the ones I smoke when I'm bored

    Fish, boiled potatoes and veg for dinner

    Had saurkraut last night. It's reeking havoc with my bowels.

    Well take the pace down a notch then, you don't want to kill yourself...just increase the distance a bit instead.

    Very proud of you! Can you cut out the potatoes though? I just eat meat and veggies for meals at the moment. Cut out or cut down carbs like potatoes and you'll see a big difference in your weight.

    Indeed it is..

    Today is rest day and back to the gym tomorrow (Fri) for cardio... I'm going to mix up my cardio and try running a steady state for 30 mins, because intervals as good as they are can be very hard on the body. I'm then doing a toning class on Saturday nad getting my measurements taken as I had my inches/body fat measured in September and then two months later and lost 16 inches over my whole body, and now over 2 months later I'm going to get them taken again to see a difference from last time.

    Have a fit day!

    I think the Doc would prefer me to change jobs. Having to deal with a bunch of wanGers all day is not good for the heart rate. Nowt to do with the running itself.

    ^ Running slowly will eventually have the effect of reducing your heart rate both while exercising and at rest. It will probably also reduce your blood pressure.

    Hmm, maybe you can learn how to deal with them another way or to manage your stress... running helps for sure, right?

    That's awesome, hills are always a great workout. Are you still in Brunei/Malaysia?


    I'm heading to the gym this evening to do some running probably...
    I've been eating bad the past few days and need to get back on track. Feel like shit just from eating too much sugar.

    Agreed. However, in this case the monitored running I have been doing over the months has shown a spike that must have come from external factors. It wasn't a little spike and it resulted in me going to work and confronting the issue head-on. That issue has now been resolved and the running this morning was back to normal.

    This is something else I should have learnt and done a long time ago.

    Did 6 km in two hours (stoping to take pics along the way) of cross country skiing.
    Must have burned close to 1000 calories. Felt great and kept up to my super fit friend for the most part.

    Only a 6.8km run for me yesterday. I've picked up a small, niggling injury in my right leg. I might need to rest for a few days - or maybe a week.
