gukl, when you coming down?

Good to see you're enjoying the routes in London! I was actually there last week but was a bit hectic and not much time for running! Weekend 18th October will almost certainly be heading down.

The yoga studio is only yoga but it's literally next door to my gym, super convenient.

Tonight

Squats 110kg x 5 100kg x 10
Leg Curls 50kg 2 x 12

And 90mins vinyasa yoga

adarq come over for the london marathon next year. 26 april 2020.

- run 4.6 km in 28:30
with gf, hence slow and short, just exploring and loosening up. jet lag pretty bad last two nights. better something than nothing. wansted flats has some dirt paths, which are nice at least in the woods (by the council flats there's a lot of trash) but it's not lit and there was almost no one there -- okay for me to run alone but gf wouldn't be comfortable. gukl, what's your gf think of living here?

- stretch

So she's kinda of grown up there, she's just gone back to live with her family - it is not the nicest area in London but it's kind of home for her I think. She feels fairly safe walking around at night and stuff I think. The area is a lot better than it was prior to the Olympics from what she tells me though and all in all a reasonable place to live.

London marathon I'm DOWN!

Oh wow, that's a lot of change in a short period! Hope the transition goes smoothly, I've never lived in London but would be keen to spend some time there one day. I'm only 2 hours on the train away though so visiting is pretty easy.

My girlfriend lives in Leyton and Wanstead flats is her local park run! How coincidental. Definitely gotta do this!

Not sure about next weekend - I am off but not sure what my plans are at the moment, think I have some friends coming to visit me and the weekend after I have tickets for aphex twin in Manchester and working the next two weekends after that doh. I could be around mid week though so will keep you updated - could just do a training run.

(BTW if you ever wanna do any hiking in the North of the UK during your time here hit me up!)

today:

fair amount of cycling prolly 1 hour mod intense in total

gym upper:
pull ups 3 x 10 felt strong
inc db bp 34kg  x 8 30kg x 10
pullovers db 24kg 2 x 12
curls 22kg x 8 14kg x 12
tris pull downs 2 x 15

60mins hot yoga (intense today damn)

nice!!

i wonder if that feeling people get w/ hot yoga, is similar to what i get with 95-100+ F long slow runs. feel sooooo loose/good after.

I imagine so!! The room is set at 38c (I think around 100F). It's definitely a different kinda feeling to exercising in cool conditions.

Today wanted to yoga again but no time

Run treadmill 30mins 11km/h

Squats 105kg x 5, 95kg x 10

Leg curl 45kg 1 x 15

Making progress with these bare minimum volume sessions. Had some insomnia last night so running on like 1 hour lol, always think back to the article on here 'no sleep, who cares - go get it' in these situations.

got visa, leaving for london in ~15 minutes. our expected place to stay tonight fell through and i can't reach my gf now to confirm booking an airbnb so might have to leave for the airport without knowing my actual destination tomorrow, lol. heeeere we go.

i missed this, you're moving to London? when did this happen - belgium was the plan last i read (or is london just en-route?)

i'll be down there quite a bit over the next few months as my gf is currently living there, lets park run!
