The Half Life of 18ck


18ck

Recommended Posts

Another rest day today. We all woke up with snotty head-colds so decided not to do anything to make it worse and jeopardise the weekend's long runs.

We did some dancing though, for the balance challenge and I have been at the prepositions again.

Or take up swimming? 😀

It's good that they both like doing stuff though. Would either of them ride after you on a bike and keep you company that way maybe? It might work as a gateway drug into running...

Oh, we swim every day in the summer.

Oddly enough, the youngest is the only one in the family to own a bike. We really should remedy that. My oldest had one, but he out grew it.

Oh yes, definitely do! No-one should be bikeless in this world. When I am king of the earth that will be the law.

Well, I sat out yesterday too. We were all still ill so it was a pyjama day with not even much Portuguese in it, just lots of telly and fruit.

I'm still ill today but... Oh, hang on, this is now necessary....

... but I managed to drag myself to the gym Mrs 18ck goes to. I didn't want to miss out on running but I thought doing it in winter weather was a bad idea. I swam for a bit to warm up then did 10k on the dreadmill, followed by some curls and lat pulldowns. How did I stay entertained for nearly an hour in a Hamster-wheel? Well, I put my Michel Thomas Portuguese lesson in and followed along. It was good practice and a leg/brain super-set.

Rawr!

Rugir!

So not a bad week despite two days off. I'm short a handstand set and I've still yet to break grounds on the social goal. Oh, and Flyer is poorly too, so the c25k is behind, but that can't be helped.

No handstand practice? What gives? Just not into it right now? Or perhaps they're in the bottom of barrel?

Being upside down when you have a runny nose doesn't work so well.

Sadly, Flyer us still.... Unwell, and had to stay home from school.

As for me, I got my press-ups done and a good chunk of Portuguese reading (Ler português... Is that right? Yes, I think so. Infinitive, not present participle... Yeah, looks right...) and if course all the usual cycling, which I think is really good cross training for the half. I feel like I'm on a good trajectory at the moment.

*thinks*

No fecking up allowed!

You are doing really well, you got this. Or that? Which is it? Dunno. Yay for whichever way it needs to be!

Ya I'm a bit batty at the moment. I'm feeling like myself again and I get pretty giddy when that happens. Or it happens? Dunno.

Mm, I've looked on on your thread a couple of times lately but for some reason can't think of anything intelligent to say. I am silently willing you on to victory though. My ears are vibrating with the effort.

It must have worked, my med levels are good and the 'me' I've been working on is present and accounted for.

No worries about posting or not. I have no doubts that you root for me whenever you think of me. As I, you.

I do quick head stands and it helps clear everything out right afterwards.

 

How does one work up to vibrating one's ears, sounds like an interesting exercise :)

Ah well, we can make it a progression for the inter-challenge mini if you like. You'll need special equipment though.

Still going strong. I did some strength training and managed a really good, solid pull-up which made me feel really good. Someone left a resistance band in there a couple of weeks back so I've been using it to improve and it has helped a lot. I might have a challenge goal next time about moving up to a set of five or something

Also, cycling (of course) and some Portuguese flashcards.

Knackered now.

Well done on your lifting pb the other week

Thanks!

A pullup? That's great. Congrats, man. :kiwi-fruit:

Thanks. Yeah, pull-ups are my Nemesis, but between losing weight and gaining strength I really feel like I've made a breakthrough.

Today was a busy work day. I went to a body balance class with Mrs 18ck but that should have been *as well as* running but it turned into *instead of* running, just because of re time available.

Revised a few Portuguese prepositions (Christ, how many places are there in this country? They have a word meaning "from that side" for heaven's sake!

Flyer os back at school but didn't feel up to running so the C25K is still on hold.

Speaking of weight loss, it's not really a goal but I am eating really sensibly at the moment. That'll help, if I don't have to drag an extra few pounds of lard around with me for 13.1 miles.
