    I find that if I am running on trails, my attention is being spent on keeping myself from falling so I get a - 10 perception check to see fluffeh critters. Which makes me sad. Though I like running in forested areas(with asphalt roads), since it's like 28+ degrees Celsius all year round so I'll take any shade I can get. Yeah the housework tends to pile up when you're busy doing other stuff then it all plops down on you when you get back and find the sink has dishes with questionable contents on them, you can't find a clean shirt to put on...etc. Sorry to hear you had something get you down, but good on you that you had contingency plans to deal with it and made the best out of things happening the way they did.

    Breakfast: Curry tuna zucchini boat Cinnamon milk Usual decoction of 1 tablespoon cumin, fennel and 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds One kiwi Did some disguise checks(wore a light coloured shirt and baggy pants) to appear ah..hem..not so fit and more rounded so as to qualify for a lose to win fitness assessment. So basically the results were as follows: 33 knee push ups(elbows close to body) in 1 min 36 sit ups in a minute 66 squats in a minute(but it was squat on a chair) Shuttle run of 4x10m at 11.90 secs (hey, all those Han Solo shuttle runs paid off ^^) Step test(3 min of steps, 1 min of rest) of 79 heart beats per min That was pretty much the only work out I got for the day as I was busy with my culinary experiments(hey, where would you find a food mage except in the kitchen?=) So for lunch I researched the eggplant lasagna. Not a true lasagna per se, but I cut eggplants into strips, baked them with salt, basil and oregano for 10 min. Then I made the "meat sauce" out of 2 tomatoes, one chopped onion, 80g minced pork and 230g okra adding half a teaspoon of basil,thyme and rosemary. After that I put one layer of meat sauce, put a layer of eggplant strips, and spread it with a bit of mozarella cheese, added the next layer of meat sauce, followed by eggplant slices, then another layer of meat sauce and a bit more mozzarella cheese. It worked pretty well except the eggplant was still tough. Maybe I need to bake it longer? But that was lunch.

    You will need to see. I find that if I train in a fasted state, my stamina does not regenerate as quickly as usual, which gives me problems doing back to back gym classes. Also running on an empty stomach (was tired of stitches), was a spectacular failure for me.

    I find that I run better should I have eaten carbs the night before but most of the time I don't really bother about chasing that boost. Generally I'm more interested in getting caffeinated with green tea before I lift weights =P That's like no calories lol.

    Aramis- you did want to see something closer to my full potential, right? Here's a documented park run. - But 5 km only, on a flat road.Now if I could hold it for 10 km... I actually finished on 28:53, but fiddling with devices took time.

    Apples are good at making you feel full, as are eggs and eggplants. Beans too.

    Yeah its good to stand up for yourself. Sometimes I think my life has also been putting what others think over my own needs and lately I've been trying to put my foot down on that. Look, I'll get what you want done, but let me choose a time or place, ok? I find that anger is sort of the opposite of depression and that suppressing your anger too often leads to your life being without energy since it is also a driving force. I can't tell the difference between a raven and a crow so...yeah I wouldn't be any help lol. I guess I can be a bit of a snob, but I don't do trail running - only did it once. One of the people in my local running group tripped and fell while doing trail running. Trail running is trickier and you need to be very on the ball to negotiate the flattest path on the trail lest you twist your ankle or something, or at least it felt like that to me the last time I did it(was trying to get prepared in case the AIA glow run required trail running).

    Breakfast: Curry tuna zucchini boat Glass of cinnamon milk Morning snack: Decoction of 1 tablespoon cumin, fennel and 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds and a kiwi Lunch: 40g pink lentils 20g red pepper 60g chayote 1 tomato, all in a stew 250g cucumber with ginger 150g broccoli  100g cauliflower 90g sesame chicken Yeah no workout recorded yet. Going for a Fight-Do class in the evening though. I'm wondering if too much cardio has been causing me to lose muscle mass so I decided not to wake up early so as to get more sleep. A company event tea: One curry puff One chicken pie I'd say really bad timing because today has been an inactive day so I pretty much blew the budget. I doubt I'll have enough time to burn those calories off tonight >< Dinner(well it had to get eaten or things would be wasted): 150g broccoli 100g cauliflower 60g chickpeas 6 stuffed tofu puffs Then did Fight-Do for about 45 min, it's like body combat except theres more emphasis on leg movements while punching and also theres some drop to the ground to crouch/burpees between punching sequences.

Also someone was using the weight locks so balancing 3 different weights on each end was making me nervous. Calf raises on seated leg press x20 @65 Calf raises on seated leg press x20 @85 Calf raises on seated leg press x20 @95 Dual adjustable pulley tricep curls @6.25 kg x20, 3 sets  Diagonal leg raises on stability ball (x15) each side, first set without breaks then took a break at 10, 3 sets.

The only good news is I didn't gain fat. Joined a Hiits workout at night.

    6.30 min/km under optimal conditions(yes, I can and have maintained that pace for 10 km straight). I.e with not too much sunlight and with a running group on road(I'm lazy as f to push myself if I am alone =p). I'm 1.57m lol^^ If I am alone I will probably do a 7 min/km thing and laze around while I'm at it. On hills it drops to 7.30 min/km, but going up 100m in 1.4 km distance is considered rather steep incline here.

    So I ran with the running group (Group 2) at a oh shit I dunno how fast they're going pace =P Usually fartlek(or speed play) - people don't want to spoil the market by running too fast(else the poor sap sprinting to the front has a hard time), but today we had some speedy gonzalleses around so I had to chase them up with my short stubby feet. The good news is that there was quite a bit of recovery time where we were still jogging at a decent pace and I guess I did manage to catch some breath during that phase. Post run snack: 50g pecans 1 glass of milk. No chicken wings or mushroom fritters were eaten but I still got to redirect the greedy guts somewhere...
