working out with an elite crossfit PT tonight. STOKED.
Marathon Training Begins…
So, yesterday 31st April 2012, I signed up for the London Marathon. As standard as this may seem to a lot of people, any one who knows me would probably have a little giggle at this. At school, I was quite good at running short distance - my 100m sprints were the fastest in my year. I’ve recently started running again and am safe to run about 3 miles now. That means over the next year I need to add 23 further miles to my current pace.
I do however, have one slight issue. I’ve been told I run in true Phoebe Buffay style. This ladies and gentleman is me and you know what? I don’t even care. I’m going to run those 23 miles, arms and legs in every direction and i’m going to kick butt whilst doing it…
Or I could just work on my technique.
Just had my body fat measured at the gym. 24.8%. 0.8% away from athletic. So close! Come to mumma!
By may 19th I will have dropped that 0.8% and will be happy to celebrate my 21st!
I squat. I lunge. I cycle, row and run. I swim. I eat well but my legs are not changing at all. Ive always had thick legs. Chunky thighs and big calves but no matter what I do they don’t change :( any tips?
i have until friday to get healthy
then there will be five weeks and a day until my 21st birthday. as soon as i’m over this tonsillitis i’m going to:
- 30 day shred
- work out five days a week (gym or 4+ mile outdoor runs)
- aim for 100km per week
- swim 3 times per week
- no alcohol
- 1200-1400 calories per day of clean food
COME ON TONSILS SHRINK PLEASE I NEED TO GET TO 126 BY MY BIRTHDAY!
my mission this weekend (4 day weekend) is to complete 100k! Whose with me?!
mixing things up at the gym?
so i’m getting into a bit of a routine at the gym… can anyone offer any advice on some things i can do on my own to mix things up?
tonight i’m going to do my 3rd day of C25k then cycle 10k, i’m considering a nike training club 15 minute arm workout then a standard 15 minute ab workout.
what can i do on my own to mix things up a bit? cardio or strength… any ideas appreciated :)
