I did run though, 21.27. Paced it all wrong, had loads in the tank, was going full out for the last 50m and overtook quite a few people (I'm a considerably better sprinter than I am distance runner lol, just purely from basketball and lifting)

nice!

if you can go full out like that, def more in the tank. good stuff on sore legs.

Do they have park run in the US? I think it's the best thing ever, there are at least 5+ in my city alone. There were over 500 people there today with the winner running a serious time of 16:05 and the slowest people coming in at 60mins, pushchairs, dogs etc, is great. I was chasing this little kid who was probably about 10 the whole way round, blew past him in the last 30m tho lol  :trolldance:

ya that's cool.

no park runs around here that i know of. i think in some cities there are, like NY etc. but around here, it's just (non-free, promoted) races every weekend. most don't get 500 people either.

big races get 500-1000+ but that's the minority of races.

Quick one

Squats 105kg 5, 5, 7 felt pretty easy, definitely getting stronger!
SLRDL 20kg 2 x 10

Walked in feeling rubbish but was actually a good session. Steady progress. Switching to 3x5 once a week and 3x3 once a week was definitely a good decision, felt much stronger since I did this.

17.6k run 5.45 pace.

Would have been longer and faster but my feet were fucking destroyed. Huge arch blisters and u have to be on my feet for like 37.5 hours this weekend so had to call it a day. Hope they heal up fast. Peroneal tendon was a little bit teeaky too, not as bad as last time.

Bought a hydration belt pack thing today too, excited to try it out on a looong hot trail run once these issues are resolved.

Made it through a looong weekend at work no time for anything other than 20m cycle commute each way. Pretty stressful but had the most relaxing day today, went to the cities Buddhist centre for a guided meditation. Then

Run 30m at 12km/h treadmill blisters feeling OK

Squats 115kg 3x3
Leg curl 45kg 2 x 10

Then went to yoga for the first time ever! Super enjoyed it, going to try and make it a regular part of my routine. Felt like exactly what I need both physically and mentally. It was a 75mim vinyasa class, wasn't exactly for beginners so was actually harder than I expected. Fun though, I imagine it must feel incredible to be really good at this!

10/10 day

Lol yeah, she's kinda opposite from me, never really into physical activity but I feel like she just never had the influence.

Today

Run 30m on treadmill, threw in some incline stuff, finished at 12kmh on 4% Incline, was pretty intense actually

Then another 1 hr 30m yoga

Hooked on the yoga stuff. It's a totally new way of doing things, I already feel like the quality of my movement is so much better. Im feeling really good about what it has to offer me, both physically and mentally.

future yogi.

hot yoga seems pretty cool. i imagine you feel loose af after 5-10 min.

i used to box occasionally in a boxing gym where they'd put the heat on sometimes, was great. drenched in minutes. feel so loose.
