Dude, the food looks awesome - but the locations of those runs.... WOW! It always amazes me to see how incredible the rest of the world is, and I'm glad you are sharing!

Hey MF,

Are you doing any lifting these days or just focusing on endurance training? Was watching your training videos earlier to get me fired up for my workout, really good stuff:)

Thanks for checking in mate, hope you liked the videos :?:

Pretty much just running at the moment Rob. Occasionally I'll call in to the gym and do some weights just to keep some sort of muscle definition, but not a patch on what I used to train like. That's why I'm not really logging them right now, I tend to like focusing solely on either the lifting or running and right now my goal is to knock off a fast marathon (well fast for my not-very-fast legs anyway). So after a bit of downtime after the off road marathon I think it's about time to get locked in and serious.

Emphasis now is on continuing to get faster as the distance gets longer, with the goal of being able to hold 5min/km pace for the marathon distance. Plan to get out for a decent length run tonight, hopefully around 20km then I'm meeting a mate in the morning at Hagley Park... let's go :popcorn:

Amazing run last night coming off three days rest, haven't felt that strong in a long time!

Just off out for a morning run with a friend at Hagley Park, will write up the sessions when I get back.

Hey mate,

Indeed, loved the training vids, particularity the "day of the DL" and Bench Press vids, i also like your styler D-B presses, i used a similar hand position myself, i feel it a lot more in my pecs, plus it puts a lot less stress on the shoulder joints.

Good luck with the marathon mate, no doubt you'll do well:)
Best
Rob

Yes, it sure is!

Well I haven't had much time to run these last few days as I have busy organising and promoting a seminar on health, nutrition and longevity (with a large focus on veganism, fasting and preventable disease)...


Image


I am hosting it on behalf of my health store, it's going to be a busy night with around 60 people booked to attend. Just about to get ready to head down to the venue now, planning on a good couple of hours running in the morning to unwind and relax the mindg :)

James! You've been busy bro! How do you feel running on an empty stomach? I strangely enjoy training on no food haha

I do like my morning fasted runs. I feel lighter and full of energy (I make sure I have eaten well the previous evening) and I find I'm fine in a fasted state for any distance up until around the 10km mark. Anything longer than that and I'd probably eat something as I'd hate to run out of energy and have to walk back home lol.
