Over-Training, Rest, and the Immune Response

Over the last few weeks, my mind has been swinging backward and forwards between my training plans and the Spartan Trifecta Weekend that I’ve signed up for at the end of June. The fear that I won’t be ready by June keeps returning despite my efforts to keep it under control. I tell myself toContinue reading “Over-Training, Rest, and the Immune Response”

The One Year Review

It is now a little over a year since I “lost weight” for my Spartan Journey and I thought it would be a good time to review my progress.

I have waited with anticipation for the launch of this class and have finally beenContinue reading “FlyClimb – the New Vertical Workout in Town”

When #FMR sees my heart rate stats, he gets cross with me because he thinks I’m going to have a heart attack while working out. That’s probably because heContinue reading “Heart Rates and Other Measures for Fitness”

My Weight Loss Journey

A number of people have remarked about the weight I’ve lost over the last year so I’ve decided to share the story… Most of the changes took place over six to seven months from October-November 2017 to April 2018. I should also mentioned that even though this post is labelled “my weight loss journey”, weightContinue reading “My Weight Loss Journey”
