LOL , once I set my sights on a rower ..... It happens fast and is unstoppable ....

I hear there is a competiton in December that caters for older gentlemen who own rowers...

Rower
  • 3 x 2000m (2 min rest)


Genuinly uncertain if i can muster the power to go sub 7 ...the endurance training has robbed me of so much

Cheers Martin !! we keep on working hard x

yesterday
  • 5km row



today
  • 10km run


The DEXA scan I had 6 weeks ago - the results were so poor that I totally changed my training and my goals ... I was AGOG at my poor muscle mass (bottom 2%) and hight body fat content (just my legs were 29%fat ... overall bodyfat 25%) and this was after 6 months marathon training i had just got an all time PB in the half marathon (1:37) ....anyhoo just got an email from the company , turns out the machinery is defective and has been giving out false readings.

I am just at a loss.

anyhoo, just got a limited edition strawberry aero and its dish lish.

Are the dexa people going to give you another shot on a machine that isn't out by a factor of 10 so that you can make us all swioon with your 2.5 percent bodyfat reading? I can't imagine it's cheap to do!

It wasnt cheap and they offered me 2 free scans or a full refund ..... I realised that it doesnt really matter what my muscle % is or how fat my legs are .... so i took the refund.

the scan was 160

after my immense effort training for the marathon, I still had chippy tits, so i guess they are here to stay

Concept 2
  • 5 x 1000m with 2 mins rest

It turned out i ran at about 1:57 pace.....but the course was a bit long and i stopped a couple of times to text the wife n have a piss ...

I really enjoyed it and have decided to run more half marathons with sub 2 hours being my speed of choice
