Re: Newbie to triathlon and other stuff - exercise and food log

Most amazing was I went for a short hilly run on Xmas day, bec...

Re: Newbie to triathlon and other stuff - exercise and food log

I'm finding it seriously fascinating to see how mentally I've gone from doing weights just because I felt I had to, into really enjoying the slow steady movements and wanting to do more and more!

So - whats the convention on how to record sets/weights? pretty please :)

Re: Newbie to triathlon and other stuff - exercise and food log

hmmmmm I like your ideas and can try to make the gym more than once a week though twice is probably all I have time for? My priorities are:
    support my running
    build functional muscle in my upper body especially my back
    improve core strength

if that helps?
