    Extra Dad Taxi duties last night and a small crisis with my parents meant I missed yesterday and this mornings ride on my day off is also cancelled. Will aim to squeeze something in tonight.

    Day 7, got up early doors to get a turbo session in before school run, getting to work etc. so this 100 days of exercise malarkey is doing the trick.

    19.99 km in 45m, wahoo systm app said 20km, but strava recorded it as 19.99 km.

    Short bike ride with the kids on Monday, yoga on Tuesday (still knackered from racing at the weekend)
    Then started on my exercise app last night- great way of getting a quick workout in
    There’s a few apps from the same people

    First week completed. A mixture of mountain biking, running and walking. Just a quick 2km walk today as it’s first day of chemo… Which felt better than I expected tbh 🙂

    Walks of various length/distances, couple of runs, an easy sufferfest/wahoo vid, yoga everyday ….. a nice easy start into it.

    Saw a thing the other day…. 100 days of pull ups…. Day 1, one pull up, day 2 two pull ups etc etc….

    That will be tough come November !! So Im trying every other day, to get to 50 pull ups on last day.

    Have tried this with pressups starting new years day.
    Jan first, 1 pushup in the morning, one befroe bed.
    2 on the next day and so on.

    Next christmas suprise your family by busting out 360 continuous pushups effortlessly.

    I normally get bored and forget after about the second week of january so I give up. deosn’t work if you skip a day 😉

    Half hour yoga this morning, then decided to run the dog walk.  Had a walk with friends at lunch and slightly shorter dog walk tonight.

    Walked another local park this evening, plan to tick off them all over the 100 days. This one had a gravel path, so much better on the feet than the tarmac of the one on Tuesday.

    So, this week, 4 walks of at least 1.5 hours (over and above the regular morning/evening dog walks,a 1.5 hr off road ride, yoga, and then rowing machine today. That’s the first week done and dusted 😀

    Half an hour with Kassandra this evening, having done no core work for weeks/months, I think I’m gonna be sore tomorrow.

    Techno powered weights #2, Jeff Mills. Spot of Sven Vath on Saturday perhaps. Did a 45 min run last night steady but OK.

    I know I should have had an easy day today but got home a really had to get out on a bike ride. Went out for an hour on the road which was just the therapy I needed.
    Spent the evening watching television on my foam roller which I’m hoping will sort out my legs for tomorrow.

    A 5k run this evening. Finally getting back into the rhythm of running, so this challenge is definitely positive.

    Fun play ride on the trails tonight.
    Tomorrow is a challenge. Full day of work including site visit, then evening commitment.
    Will need to force myself to do a quick run or zwift at some point.

    30mins of weights this evening. First time doing weights in a long time. First week done which is longer than I managed last year!

    Is this the 3rd year we’ve been doing this on STW?

    4th IIRC. 3rd year I’ve been doing it.

    Day 7 – fail*, and I’ve only just realised.
    Hell of a busy week (for me) and completely forgot to make time for this. Bugger.

    Tomorrow I’ll be aiming to walking my you get to school, around 50mins round walk. I’ll make up for today with some home workout, drumming, cleaning and painting (hopefully).

    I’ve done approximately 6 days more exercise this week than I have for the last 6 months. I will class that as success!

    Gym done, trained legs which meant I couldn’t quite manage my 5k run (total jelly). Did a couple of miles then finished off in the static bike.

    Will go for a wobbly walk with the dog later.

    4th IIRC

    Is it really? I thought it was the third but I think you’re right. Sandboy jnr did it the first year and as a reward got a gym membership which he still has. Just goes to show how positive this challenge has been.

    Week 1 done. Ran at least 5k every day. 48.6k for the week. I started running (slowly) last year as a lockdown activity, last night I ran the 7k back to the car from the theatre. Quite the contrast. Even ran up the mall and past Buckingham palace.

    First time I’ve run 7 days in a row and by far my biggest weekly total. I need to mix in some other activities and its going to tricky with a big holiday coming up. Let’s see how it goes.

    Squeezed in a quick 30min run with the dog – did mean getting to work 20min late but not a major issue. The 100 day challenge is obviously far more important 😀

    Nice pedal with dogs. Picked some porcini/ceps on the way. Today’s dog run will be a slow check of 10km or so

    Day 8, 3.06 km swim in 68 minutes. Longer swim and despite how sluggish it felt, somehow faster rate than normal. Go figure.

    Week one done and weighed myself on Day one and Day 8 and just from this and dropping alcohol and all other rubbish foods, chips, chocolate (though some snuck through), crisps, managed a 1.8 kg weight loss in this week.

    Before some smarty pants comes along and points out “you’ll never make it to 100 days whilst restricting calories”, I haven’t been, I’ve trained within the lower HR zones, kept up a good calorie intake and eaten and rested vey well.

    Despite having trained every day I feel quite good.

    really feeling it now.

    90mins Ju Jitsu on Wed eve, which felt like throw after throw after throw, most throws are pretty effortless but being thrown means getting back to your feet (over and over again)
    90mins on the mtb last nightf

    gym this afternoon

    5k trail waddle this lunchtime. Just measured the blubber mountain lost about half an inch. Although probably within margin of error for a trapped fart or a lodged steak and kidney pudding.

    I’m going to be a bit pushed for time and opportunity over the next 4 days so I thought I’d better get a good one in today. 50km gravel ride down to Glen Feshie and back.
