18ck

Recommended Posts

Hah! Same here. Still some more coughing but this week-end there will be no more excuses.

Go 18ck! :) It's you who signed up for that marathon, not me!

I can run all of my 10Ks off my sleeve. :D

Yep. I've been told.

British plumbing, I'm telling you. The reason why you lost all the wars. ;)

Shh, don't mention that. I mentioned it once but I think I got away with it.

WTF?! In November?!

I bet it was suggested by an Australian. The others are just pretending.

Ugh! I went to the gym for my run for complicated reasons to do with shower strategy. Ugh! I HATE gyms*!

D'you know that scene in Jurassic Park where Jeff Goldblum says "T-Rex doesn't want to be fed, T-Rex wants to hunt"? Well my feet don't want to go on a treadmill, they want to run. Gravel, mud, trees, wind in the face, jumping over stuff that gets in the way... You know, like the mammals we are!

*=spellcheck wants to change this to "I hate guns" which us also a sentiment I would support.

I swam though, and had a nice shower. Now the trick is to cycle home sloooowwwwly so as not to get all sweaty again.

Take another shower?

 

I cannot do anything physical without breaking a sweat, so power to you if you can get home without needing a second shower.

But if I need a second shower I'll have to go back to the pool and then cycle home, thus necessitating a third shower and... Oh, my work colleagues will just have to get used to my pong.

The monks are doing a cold shower mini-challenge this week.  (Why?  Because we're monks and that's how we roll.)  I'm glad my cold water is optional.

Not ANY month of the year would I volunteer to take a cold shower.  Nope, nope, nope.  Not even if it was 105 degrees last night.

Cold Showers are awesome! Thought you ought to know.

Flyer19 beat me in a plank - off. I put her to bed before she could boast about it.

I think I'm a bit over calories today (damn you, nuts!) but haven't pinched it all into MFP yet to be shamed.

Portuguese was a podcast about O Regresso do Jornalismo and a couple of pages of Harry Potterguese. Its strangely hard to follow. I know the story but Jk Rowling seems to use more convoluted sentences than Kurt Vonnegut. No handstand yet... Hang on a minute...

Nuts are evil. 

When I wanted to up my selenium uptake, I had Mr Nanako keep my stack of brazil nuts and he would give me 3 a day. :blink: Felt weird though.

 

Children and planks - that's just like children and monkey bars, or children and rope climbing. No competition. 

Nanako-chan can do 2-3 minute planks without batting an eye. I can so 90 secs ...

The Brighton course looks picturesque, being along the shoreline it should be damn flat too! Good luck!

Thanks. I hope you're right. I'm feeling a bit daunted right now. I'd better pull my shit together.

Today was

About 10 miles running with added hilly goodness, one short handstand, 113 pushups, swimming with Flyer19. I have eaten a lot but still way under calories net.

Rawr!

Just time for some Portuguese bedtime reading to hit that last goal!
