  2. Probably a good idea to lock the door when doing those inappropriate selfies
  3. Some great strongman stuff on YouTube nowadays aye Mike, Bene was a true beast. You ever heard of a guy called 'Norb' Schemansky? Hardly anybody has ever heard of him but man he was strong. In powerlifting he was capable of a 600lb squat, 630lb DL, 440lb bench press and a mind-boggling 225lb barbell curl. He was also the holder of an amazing 26 world records Hope you had a great weekend Mike, what did you get up to? MF

  6. Not sure how high it is, but I would think it's a few thousand feet at least !! Yeah, just started back on the weights. Weak as a ferret but hey, strength isn't my goal right now (for once). Just using it to complement my running and I'm sure it won't do any harm in getting those looks off the ladeeeez Weekend was great thanks, how about yours?

  9. Cheers Chris! Just did an easy early morning run this morning, 12.2km at a consistent 4.46/km pace (think it took me around 58mins). Will write up later when I have more time MF.
  10. Thanks Rob, yeah hoping this could be a stepping stone to launch some vegan products kiwi-style!
  11. 1997 aye, your lawn would have been quite long then? So how often do you give yourself a chest meal? Training looks good in here, jealous that you can sumo squat. Nice! Much planned for the weekend?
  12. I'm coming to the end of my recovery period now, the real block of training towards the half starts at the beginning of June. I think I am in a good place: my CV base is not too bad, I can comfortably hold 4.30/km pace for well over 10km and I am feeling fit, rested and healthy. I think adding in the weights along with getting back up in the hills for some hard 'grunt' sessions will see me right. Quality, consistent and hard training sessions should ensure a fast half marathon ~ one that will put me towards the 1hr30 mark. I'll know as I continue onwards but the numbers don't lie; I'm a firm believer that the proof of achieving your goal with running lies in ones' training stats. ... Oh, and here's why I want to get back up into the hills... Because that is about 20mins drive away from my house

  14. Thanks Chris. No I have been lucky, no DOMS at all from the weights which was not what I was expecting. The shop is doing really well, have actually just had to advertise for another staff member as it's picked up that much I need another person to help on the shop floor. Brilliant!
  15. Quick update: I'm meeting with the CEO of a NZ supplement company next week to run through this product with him, am hoping it might be something he is interested in formulating on a large scale. Fingers crossed

  20. Sometimes, usually I will eat something in the 1-2 hours after training. Depends on how hard the session was. If it was a tough one often I am not that hungry for a while. Yeah, I eat usually around 3 meals a day and snack on things like fruit and nuts throughout the day as well
  21. Looking forward to a hard and fast 20+km run tonight as I haven't been able to run for a few days (work, looking after the girls etc)...
