Thanks!

I have been taking it easy since that session on Wednesday, got some pretty decent DOMS in my hams so I made the most of being busy at work! How good does last nights dinner look :tongue9:

Hey buddy, how are you doing? That food looks delicious! Everything cool w/ the store? Saw that some old lady crashed your setup. Did you chase her down and give her the 'what for'?? haha :boxer:

Haha, yeah I saw the funny side. She really had no idea she knocked over a whole display cabinet and then when she ran over it on the way out she started whinging about her new mobility scooter being a waste of money because the old one rode smoother! :lachmal:

Shop is doing great thanks, funny thing is we haven't even started to break into growth yet. I think when we do that we will likely be probably number one or two nationwide which is bloody good. Doesn't get much better than that aye MF.

Haha, it was pretty tasty mate. Took me about 2mins to get that down me! How come you don't eat bread anymore :?: I just have it now and then, can't say I'm a big fan of the stuff.

This was last nights dinner, a big slab of 'beef' mmmmmm...

Trying to stay clear of the refined flour, and grains altogether - despite my weekly pizza it seems!

WEDNESDAY 2nd JULY

WEATHER CONDITIONS:
2°F, HEADWIND FOR FIRST 6km THEN RAIN & A CROSSWIND

ATTEMPT AT PB FOR MY REGULAR GRAYS ROAD LOOP

Image

RUN: AGGRESSIVE
SHOES: BROOKS 'GHOST'
INTENSITY: 9/10

MP3:

Image

*1km WARMUP ~ 5:21*

DIST: 11.63m
TIME: 51:43

CALORIES: 881 (1,022cal/hr)

MIN ALT: 59ft
MAX ALT: 190ft

AVE SPD: 13.49kph
AVE PCE: 4.26'/km
MAX SPD: 19.08kph

** This was a tough run due to the conditions but really happy with it. The headwind on the way out took a bit more out of me which I noticed coming into the final few km's, I had to dig deep to finish fast and strong. Shaved nearly 2mins off my previous PB so I think this one will stand for a while !!
