Nah - blisters, scratches on the back of the right hand and cuts on the back of the calves - all pretty par for the course in sculling!

Het 18ck! you are doing great!, I just saw your slacklining video, it looks like the most fun way to break an arm (second to the bike maybe), so I should give it a try!!

It's so great! Good core and balance work. Also noticed - in my ongoing man-crush on Scott Jurek - that he mentions using it in his biog too, which made me feel good about my purchase!

How goes the monkeyness? Bananas are paleo, I presume...?

So we've arranged for a bank holiday on your birthday specifically for you and what do you do ? Go and run a 10K ? ;-)

 

Sounds like a good plan, quite impressive !

 

Love the slacklining by the way. Tried it only once back in Berlin in a park but kept falling off after 3 steps. Might get one for the summer ... once I've lost a few pounds, hopefully. Though I might get more laughs now, falling off. And better padding. :-)

I'm pretty sure bananas were only invented in the 70s.

Anyway, I know I said it on your thread too, but those pics are great. I guess that must have been mid-transition because you're well below ogre weight but your monkey tail hasn't grown in yet. Top marks!

I'm surprised more people aren't into slacklining, especially with all the tricks you can do on them. It actually doesn't feel very dangerous but yes, knowing me, of it's possible to maim oneself with a slackline, I'll find a way!

W00t!

30 pushups in i suddenly decided to try doing one of those jumpy pushups Steve K does and found - much to my surprise - that it was pretty easy. Instantly felt 300% more badass.

Ok, that's all my exercises from my schedule done (2k fast, 160 pushups, squat-jump tabata plus bonus tabatas of situps and burpees. Burpees after 160 pushups? I must need my head examining.

Anyway... Mr Lathrop, Mr Dias, Dr 18ck will see you now.

Ignoring the fact that you can do 160 pushups (!!!) and burpees after that (!!!).

 

Wait, 2K fast ? That sounds clever. I only ever do speed training with the club, and that's an hour or so of fartlek, sprints, games and such, typically to the point of, well, regurgitation, would never do that on my own.

 

But 2K fast ? Can't be more than 10 minutes can it ? Does that work (as in make you faster) ? Sounds intriguing. That would fit into my schedule really, really well ...

Just to unboast my boast a bit, the 160 was in 8 sets as part of the 100 pushups in 6 weeks program I've been doing for the past 20 weeks or so... And even then I was meant to do 175 but I couldn't.

As for the 2k, I'm working on a faster gait and it's pretty good but I can't keep it up for my usual distance (about 11 or 12k) so I'm doing it on short bursts to try and get my muscles used to it. So, it's fast for me but it's not like an all-out sprint!
