...I can't think of a good title for my new post-contest log :)

I want to increase my strength and building more muscle! So been away for 10 days (only training was swimming twice which was good). Surprisingly at the gym today I pretty much picked up where I left off...

Ran 1.73 miles which is basically around the block from my house. Figured it wouldn't hurt do some cardio once in a while. I can extend my route pretty easily to increase the distance in the future, only real issue is the fact I live halfway up a hill!! :roll:

Ran 1.97 miles round Edinburgh in about 20 minutes. Was halfway through this when I realised I'm an idiot and probably should have got in touch with the Edinburgh strength cult! (although I was only there for the night).
