Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

TriCarb was great, absolute rocket fuel. I bought the plain stuff which was a little sickly after a couple of hours, I think next time I'm going to take one bottle of water and one TriCarb, instead of two TriCarbs. ASDA is the UK Walmart, they were 'vitality bars' or something like that, 72 cals, 15...

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

So the ride turned out to be a mere 30 miles today instead of the planned 100 - got a little lost finding the right place, and I think I went to the wrong meeting point anyway! I was trying out some new nutrition today, TriCarb powder from MyProtein.com, and a couple of snack bars from ASDA, worked ...

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

Today, as most my Saturdays are, was a rest day. For the most part at least - went into town and did some parkour trenin with some friends, couple of box jumps and some precision jumps so nothing too heavy! Started prepping for a 100 mile ride on the bike tomorrow, I've (hopefully) got a good enough...

Re: New You for the New Year Contest 4

I constantly want to improve and the exercise mindset of "one more rep" spreads into so many areas of my life it's become something I always want in my day so that I'm ready to push myself everywhere else. And if all else fails: Jordan - Look Me In The Eyes - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

Well, today was tough. Feeling toast right now - writing this then probably going to hit the pillow!

Vegans & Aquariums

Today I was at the aquatics centre getting some fish for my aquarium ( kept them before going to uni, now I'm partially settled I've got a new tank ) and it struck me I don't really know how I feel on it. What do you guys think about vegans keeping fish? I'd never really thought of the implications ...

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

Had tried submitting this early morning before headed out for the day, but I came back to find there was a form error - late post is late!

Today was Saturday! Complete rest day, as expected, it was excellent.

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

Sure! I'll be starting slow - just going to start logging which foods I'm eating, then after a week or two begin noting down weights, once that becomes comfortable start doing some real number works on them, but I'll keep progress noted as I update the journal. Today was squats in the gym - I messed...

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

I just decided to use 'the cloud' to log my nutrition. Kind of. I've tried various solutions in the past from using mpamyrun.com and nutrition.self.me, but they were never versatile enough and I hated the set up involved in order to write in recipes. To combat this, I'm now using google dox to write...

Re: Freff's 2012 Journal

Looks like I'm pretty bad at daily updates. This will have to change me thinks! Getting in from work + training and crashing out, but once I get into the mindset of updates not being too difficult, I'll update on the regular. Monday - Chest AM Dumbbell bench press 6kg - 21 x2 10kg - 15 14kg - 12 x4 ...

Re: New You for the New Year Contest 2

Three flights of stairs after a 7.5 mile run!

But the run was the toughest thing I've done this year ( and in quite some time )
