Splitters Friday

Fax, Joe, AM-B, Jesse and Rodd and Gunn Fergusson (PJ was sick) turned up for a nice sunny trot East via the Navy base, Golden Mile, Rushcutters, Darling Point, Double Bay, Loftus and back via a loop around MMC. Felt pretty good the entire way and pushed the hill out of Double Bay pretty well.

12.6k all up in 65 mins.

More Strength

Biggest turnout yet with Iain, Macca, Jono + Shar, Erika and her friend Jennie and Max the dog.

Back to old set with lunges, run and curtsey squats. Struggled on the run well behind all the other boys and Erika.

Had a quick swim afterwards - painfully cold on the legs.

Plenty of running today as we worked our way towards Rushcutters. A few stairs, hills, shuttles, longer intervals, plenty of push-ups and abs and then the dreaded run back. Legs felt tired early after last night but got better the faster I went.

Run Home

No company this time with Burkey in Portugal surfing and I didn't have any headphones. Ended up carrying my phone with music blaring - quite fun actually, especially on those dark Mosman trails startling other people.

Usual route. Thought I would struggle but I just cruised the whole way without too much difficulty and ran the hills pretty easily. Shocked that Melbourne is less than 11 weeks away, I really have been slack.

14.5k in 80 mins.

Had to ride two bikes home from the wharf which is harder than it sounds.

Monday HuRTS

Had a fairly late night after CT's 40th yesterday. Got home at midnight having left Fats, Tom and Erika at Jacksons (the only place we could find open!). Really fun night with everyone getting dressed up and hitting the dance floor. Most importantly Chris was in magnificent form impressing me greatly with his singing in particular.

Today was a slightly slower version of last week 12.3k @ 4:33 average. Good banter with Tom, MC, Jeet, BW, JW, D Clarke, Jerry, Renée, Shane and a few others.

13.5k all up

Friday Warrior

With the Warrior away there was no boxing and I was asked to take the session. Thought a nice little stroll around the Botanic Gardens would be fun. Good turn-out with Joe, Glenn M, Andy, Big Unit, Mudge, Brownie, Wayne and 4 or so others.

Mrs Macs steps with loops and pushups on the sea wall, squat jumps and lunges, abs, an Indian file, 50 declines/dips, backward running and sprints up the old warm-up hill, pushups and sprints on the Opera House stairs. Good session.

Manly Strength

2 hours of tennis last night - lost 2-6 6-4 4-6 but had some great rallies. Then hung around in the pub catching up until 11:30. Bounced out of bed at 5:40 to get down to South Steyne for strength with Iain, Macca, Jono, and Erika. Same session as last week with the 30 minute, 6 exercise circuit being the main part. Legs are stuffed.
