I got concerned about relying on the wall too much.  Usually I use the wall with my back to wall, but I switch it up sometimes with stomach to wall (I have to walk on my hands to get more vertical to around 80 degrees, which seems like some good strengthening too).

Mm, I did that early on. It's always good fun explaining to guests why there are footprints on the wall 7 feet off the ground.

+ 20 thousand points for having the best thread title, ever

:redface-new:

 

Haha! I am going to steal this later.  :)

Oh yes - it's actually from the description of how to fly - http://hitchhikers.wikia.com/wiki/Flying

 

Those pan galactic gargle blasters are brutal. Good call giving them a miss. Loving the theme, and great goals mate.

Thanks. And yes, I will. I don't want to have my brains smashed out with a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick.

In my home office, I can point my toes and touch the ceiling for 90 degrees assisted hand stands.  Luckily no toe prints yet :)  My normal wall was painted with an easy wash paint (since we have 3 kids) so if I see any footprints I can easily clean it up before anyone else notices.

So that's another couple of hours on the bike plus an hour in the weight room. I spotted someone for the first time ever. Felt like a proper gym bro.

Um... so, today was circuits after the usual two-and-a-bit hours of cycling. Cycling was slower than usual and I thought I was just lazy but then I found out my brake was rubbing on the front wheel, so slow but i'm calling that the extra-high-resistance setting. It's like running with wrist-weights. Rawr!

Also some Portuguese audio. I've also been eating well inside my rules all week, so I'm killing it on all fronts.

 

Meanwhile, Flyer19's school decided to have a Superhero day (what? why? oh well, it's the twenty-first century) so she went dressed as Black Widow, which is the ideal fancy dress* for an assassin. I'd post a picture but this website has a maximum awesomness rating of 200,000,000 megaawesomes so it's over the limit.

I used to have a bike that sometimes after using the front brakes one side wouldn't move back out.  It was a pain and ended up using mostly the back brakes and just checking the front breaks every time I used them.  But even a little rubbing is quite the resistance workout :)

Apparently my cumedgeonly reaction was premature. It's for charity, apparently, not just evidence that the Disney corporation is getting it's evil tentacles in our national curriculum.

Summary for the week

I'm reading Mo Farah's biography. I didn't realise he grew up so close to us. In fact, I guess he was probably at school just down the road from us when we lived in Hounslow a few years back. Good inspirational stuff, anyway.

So um...

Good habits

Pretty good. I haven't actually been out on the water but I have been for a short run yesterday with Flyer and a ten miler solo today. I've been to circuits, lifted, done some work towards a return pull-ups and made all my work journeys by bike.

Gargle-blasters

Eating has mostly been good but I have had boozes in the form of two glasses of wine on each of the last two days.

Handstands

Some work done yesterday. Not great but hey

Babel fish

Some audio and speaking practice. I got Flyer to join in today. She has some good vocabulary and her pronunciation is great but she hasn't ever really put together any full sentences and that's what the Michel Thomas method is good for, so we went back to the first few minutes of the course and got as far as saying things like "it is not possible for me, is it possible for you?" Easy enough for me (é muito fácil para mim) but I really enjoyed doing it together and Flyer enjoyed chatting with Mrs 18ck afterwards. "can you run a marathon in ten minutes mummy? É possível para a senhora?" "Não é possível para ninguém" "Não é possível para Mo Farah"

On a different note, during my run today I stopped in a public toilet and noticed some dodgy graffiti in portuguese, trying to arrange a liaison for some "chupar". I could understand most of it. I considered replying, just for some conversational practice but on the whole, I think there are easier ways of getting lessons.

Also it's rude to talk with your mouth full.

What?

Anyway, rudity aside, it has been a pretty good week one, I think.

Oh and Mrs 18ck is gradually turning me into a marathon training-widower. Hal Higdon is her master now.

So you read about marathoners while the wife trains for one?  Moar handstands!

 

He's mainly known as a shorter-distance runner, actually, although he has had a crack at a few marathons more recently.

But, yeah, you shamed me into signing up for a couple of races near me. Not a marathon - not yet, anyway, but I like the half M as a distance anyway. I like the idea of going speedy, and maybe I'll try another full one when i have a really good half m time.

Yeah, that's one of the reasons I am not ready to go for a full. Too much of a time suck.

Mm, I was asked if I wanted to be someone's iron man training buddy. Oh lordy, can you imagine the kind of training time that would take?
