It’s been a while since my last blog. So much has happened, or hasn’t happened as it turns out is the case. … Continue reading The middle way 🙂
I was dripping with sweat. I felt dizzy, and wobbly. My mind could not think straight, tunnel vision. All I could see was Bars, chalk and bloody hands. I clambered over to the 20kg bar, with 10kg plates on either side, and picked it up for my final 9 reps. Determined, I front squatted and … Continue reading Crossfit initiation.. ‘Fran’…

I'd love to catch up though and today I intended to do two sessions … Continue reading 10 HIITs in 13 days….

Again, surprised at the lack of achingness in my limbs but very tired as I woke, I dragged my sorry arse downstairs and flicked open the laptop.

In the hazy moments of transition from horizontal to a sleepy vertical this morning, one word was ringing around in my head. Insanity. Its the 4th day of the insanity workout and today was cardio recovery. 0500 in the conservatory/makeshift gym floor, trainers on, t-shirt on inside out and ready to go. I've been surprised … Continue reading Insanity day 4! Cardio Recovery.. ..
