Those who observe my log will notice the cyclic nature. Yes. I'm doing another weight cycle. Yes. The weights are more or less the same as they were every previous cycle. And yes, I'm going to start another SS cycle. However I'm older and I think this cycle, and the next few, will deliver some significant improvements. The 2012 goals are the 5 x 1.5bw squat and the 5 x bw press.

I'm in a better place, literally and metaphorically. The gym I'm using is decent and there's a better one very close to my new office. Life is joyous: work is a challenge, convenient and offers a future, home is rewarding and spring is approaching. Slow and steady and all that. Life is good.

Tuesday AM

Fate has sent me running. I've managed to misplace both my gym membership card and my drivers licence, so I'm not easily able to go to the gym. So, for the first time in months, it was a run.

10min jog

6 x stair climbs (5 sets of 16 steps) w/ pushups 3 x 15, 3 x 10 - slow and steady

10min jog

my legs were shaking before I returned to the office. this will be interesting.

Wednesday PM

spring is here; the last few days have been beautiful, but haven't given me much time for training.

first big run

7kms total run

stopped at gym and did

circuit 4 to 1 pullup, pushup, dip, inverted row

2kms run/walk

90minutes... wow... let's hope my shins are ok. and now I have to sort out how I can transport work clothes given my new office has 20 lockers between 500 people, the cleaners throw out clothes left overnight in the change rooms, I now wear suits, shirts and ties, i'm not senior enough to receive an office with a wardrobe and my floor has no clothes racks... I'm pretty lucky this is the largest issue I face at work.
