  1. Well as it turns out I was fine after the run but I ended up damaging muscles in my neck and have been out of action the last two weeks and am still recovering now. My eating has also become pretty bad between the pain and feeling sorry for myself. I am getting this back on track now but not doing any exercise yet so I'm going to have to call this challenge a fail and make another attempt during the next one. Have a great holiday and I'll be back when I'm moving freely again.
  2. Well I had a great night out Friday and ate all my veg at least [emoji14] loads of dancing and talking to people I don't know. I had a 5k race yesterday after resting Saturday and I way over did it. It was good fun and a great time of 22.18 but I've been in a bad way since. I also have higher expectations next time [emoji20] Foods been pretty good all weekend if you ignore the booze [emoji4] and I'm off to see if the body can hold up to some crossfit in the morning Sent from my arse pocket!
  3. Well I did my run Wednesday but over slept yesterday morning and missed my crossfit class [emoji20] I kne I had to make it up to myself though and did a workout myself last night instead. It'll never be as good as the class but it's better than nothing. A big unhealthy Christmas dinner now tonight along with plenty of free booze so I'll have to try and not over do it but easier said than done [emoji4] wish me luck! Sent from my arse pocket!
  4. I can see how that would cause multiple deaths. I'm pretty sure I'd need 10 extra lives to get through it. Sent from my arse pocket!
  5. Hmm I could have been clearer there I'd say. I don't think eggs and smoked salmon would work with the flavours already in it but you'd never know [emoji4] Sent from my arse pocket!
  6. I went for the soup for something warm and I've been throwing some chunks of chicken for added protein too.The run isn't my work it's my mothers, she works for a youth charity who'll be getting the money raised. Sent from my arse pocket!
  7. You're really doing an awesome job with the challenge and keeping us up to date with how it's going. I've heard that cravings apparently stop at some point but it never happened for me so I think we'll all just have to endure with the odd treat. Keep up the super work Sent from my arse pocket!
  8. Right still kicking it this week two crossfit sessions down and one to go tomorrow. I'm currently in a great deal of pain from all the hard work getting back into it and I'll be off for a short run tonight to try get all that movement back. For food I did a big chicken, spinach and sweet potato casserole for my dinners and a big batch of veg soup for lunches. I'm back drinking my not too bad green smoothie in the morning too. A few other bits get thrown in during the day like porridge or scrambled egg with smoked salmon. For the rest of the week I've a big night out Friday in the form of the Christmas work do and I'll be following it up with a Christmas fun run Sunday. Hopefully Saturday will be rest enough between them [emoji14] Sent from my arse pocket!
  9. Few I think I just got my workout for the day catching up. You've been doing great all the way through don't think your regular workouts aren't as inspirational as your more exciting ones though. They all help keep us on track Sent from my arse pocket!
  10. Just caught up and your pdp work sounds great I was thinking of something similar for building to a muscle up myself Sent from my arse pocket!
  11. You've been keeping up with a lot of work there great stuff Sent from my arse pocket!
  12. And I'm back! Last week was a total write off but I'm out swinging now again. My final trip offshore has been cancelled so I'm back working in my nice cosy office and went to crossfit this morning. I also have my food all back on track with plenty of veg. I'm not back up to full power just yet, a week of barely any food leaves one a tad low on energy but it'll come back. Hope everyone else has been going well I'll check in over the day.
  13. Not finishing this week on a high. I've gotten a stomach bug so haven't been exercising or eating very well at all. I'll be back to it when all better Sent from my arse pocket!
  14. Phew, caught up! You're really doing a great job with this challenge I'm super impressed. Sent from my arse pocket!
  15. This.I'm reading born to run now after all the reference to it in ready to run. You do have to be very gradual in making your way to minimalist running but it's supposedly the way to go so I'm on the way now myself. Sent from my arse pocket!
  16. It's great that you got through that hard day 9 only to come out swinging (literally) to own day 10. Sent from my arse pocket!
  17. It's good to be back! I have my kitchen stocked with good food and I'm back to the regular exercise routine. I'm even off to buy some barefoot runners this morning. My big focus is really turning out to be my mobility work. I've been doing a lot and I think it's really paying off. All my usual niggles are keeping quite. My main issue was always my right hip but it's looking more and more like it was a symptom and not the problem. The tight/sore are in my right leg seems to be creeping towards my knee which is making me very excited that I might be on the right track to being injury free in the future Sent from my arse pocket!
  18. Nice and easy [emoji14] Sent from my arse pocket!
  19. Bit of a spanner in the works today. I hadn't realized the flight time has changed so I'm going to have a long day of travel today with no time to exercise unfortunately. I was expecting to be home by 5 but it's going to be more like 9 now [emoji20] Sent from my arse pocket!
  20. Great work, that definitely counts as some kind of exercise, and well saved! Sent from my arse pocket!
  21. Great weekend! A day of all that action and still doing your workout is just bad-ass. Sent from my arse pocket!
  22. The food will always be the biggie. I was helped by all the time off too [emoji14] I'll try keep it in moderation so I don't ruin all my hard work [emoji1] Sent from my arse pocket!
  23. Great work over the weekend and a top class first week, well done. Sent from my arse pocket!
  24. One week down and it went pretty well health and fitness wise I think. Week 2 now and I'm thankfully off the oil rig in the morning [emoji4] but before that I got two trips to the gym in today the first one was for resistance training with the main focus being my squats. Then the second trip was my cardio 30 minutes on a cross trainer waiting for the threadmill then a 5k run on that. Food not too bad today but I had a treat for my last night good ole apple strudel. I've been keeping up my mobility work too even managed to give myself some bruises from the hard work [emoji14] Sent from my arse pocket!
  25. Busy none the less though not bad. Enjoy your rings of death I guess! Sent from my arse pocket!
