Simi's progress shots :)

I'm really proud of my progress so far and wanted to share with everyone! A few of my friends saying I have really inspired them with my dedication and training, and by doing it all vegan! I am really honored by that, and excited, because even a lot of extremely non vegan meat eaters I know have bee...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

Training Updates I am extremely busy at the moment and feel the pressure of keeping my journal updated is a bit beyond me, however I am still training consistently and will check in here when I am able. I will recommence my more detailed journal if/when I get more spare time. I want to try Kris Get...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

27.2.2012 Wow I've fallen behind with my journal a bit! Trust me I've kept up the training just SO busy at the moment and don't really have time to get online and post my workouts. My legs are now 100% recovered! So I've started elliptical again, and will start "real" outdoor running agai...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

20.2.2012 I have had a couple of days off to really rest up my legs. I went swimming yesterday - nothing crazy, just did a few laps and splashed around with my sister and partner. But I have to say my legs feel a lot better today (still sore, and there's no way I could run again just yet!) So I'm f...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

18/2/2012 Saw the physio about my joints - apparently nothing seems torn. Just really over-worked. Worst-case scenario is that if my bone density is low, I could have done some bone damage, but for know I'm going to hope it's not that! All I can do is rest, ice, compress and try to keep the swellin...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

14/2/2012 CARDIO/DELTS My ankles, heels and knees have become extremely painfull and swollen, so instead of running I chose to use the elliptical again. I did 35minutes on the "sports interval" setting (I think it simulates hills) I was dripping with sweat by the end! I did some stretchin...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

11.2.2012 Cardio and Tough Mudder Prep I have started doing cardio lately in preparation for the Tough Mudder at the end of March. However it seems my knees and ankles are not coping well with shock absorption, and over the past few days I've been experiencing intense pain in my knees and ankle/hee...

Re: Simi's Training Journal

9.2.2012 BACK/LEGS I actually did TWO workouts today! It's probably not ideal, but I trained back in the morning, and took a colleague of mine through a basic leg session in the afternoon.

Re: Simi's Training Journal

7/2/2012 RUN My third run ever! I felt fairly strong... but a little tired from work. I managed to run 4.5km without walking. I'll work on increasing my stamina over the next few weeks. I want to be able to run consistently for longer than that. Sill, I think I'm doing fairly well for a non-runner ;)
