22 Dec

Run

8.1 miles in 80 mins

Still no home gym, garage is leaking and i’m not putting metal in there until it’s sorted. Made a 2 mile loop on google maps but didn’t know that included a huge hill, ran it 4 times and felt pretty strong.

28 Dec

THE RUN

12.45 miles in 2 hours 6 mins

Run with a friend of mine who is a Pro Ironman, safe to say he was not challenged by my pace. Having someone always pushing me made a huge difference mentally and despite not feeling great when I started i’m happy with the effort. First 3 miles my pre-workout was settling, miles 3-10 were smooth and then hip flexors were seizing up and calf was cramping. The morning after (as I type) there’s a lot of hip and knee stiffness but by tomorrow i’ll be able to walk properly.

This was a tough year of training, I packed a lot into each session as it was a 20-25 minute drive to the gym. I did a lot of running for rugby fitness but also for the annual Xmas run around Bewl Water. I rarely try max deadlift but this was the year I pulled 180kg and I think that was down to doing 5 sets of 10 at about 110kg with 2 mins rest.
