Chock-a-block day

What a day, what a day, what a day!!! It started off with a fairly decent swim at my local pool. 2.2km later and I got out feeling refreshed and feeling great. Shoulders are still a bit stiff but I am hoping to get another massage. Today's session went as follows:
  • 700m Fr/s Warm up nice high elbows
  • 3 x 200m Fr/s for 50m, Bk/s for 50m increasing speed over 200m
  • 12 x 50m kick with fins & board. 50m Fr/s kick, 50m Fly kick
  • 3 x 100m one armed Rock n' Roll for 25m, 75m Fr/s
On returning home I checked my emails and I got an email from Rick Kattouf in regards to starting my diet plan. I was ready to get this started so I shipped him an email yesterday and I signed up today seeing as I now had recovered from my Cannondale splurge. I have picked this coming Monday 6th September as my start date so I have time to purchase my groceries over the weekend. Can't wait, looking forward to this 6 week journey.

I also managed another 2km run/walk today but this time with the added benefit of my youngest son Kyle keeping me on my toes. We ran for 2min and walked for a 1min and completed it in about 14mins, 2mins slower than my last attempt but that's what I get for having a good time with my baby.

And I must admit I have been a bit of a slacker in regards to my core stuff. I know, I know - I should know better. So that's why I gave it my all.
  • 3 x 20 ab crunches feet raised
  • 3 x 30 super-sets dumbbell twist (5kg), bicycle crunch
  • 3 x 30 ab alternate heel touch
So with all I this accomplished I now bid you all a goodnight. For all of you starting your day, I wish you all the best in your travels.


  1. Only you could do a 2200m swim and get out of the pool feeling refreshed.

  2. LOL...I think by refreshed she must mean there was water on her.

  3. I love getting out for runs with the kids. How did your back hold up? I hope well.

  4. Flatout Jim: This swim wasn't too bad. I like those kind of swims.

    Quinton J: yep so very true.

    misszippy: It held up well. I think doing it all so very slowly will help heaps.

    BDD: thanks so much. Yesterdays one was so hard. Update to follow.

    Aimee: thanks so much.


I am so happy you have stopped by. You have made my day.

Your hard work will be rewarded.
