Boxing Again.

Ran around Mrs Macs Chair as a warm-up racking up 3.6k beforehand. Teamed up with James W for a session that covered plenty of ground and included hundreds of punches. Felt crap on the warm-up but felt much better by the end. Not sure what is going on with me because this seems to be a continuing theme. I reckon I need more sleep.

Warrior Wednesday

Tired and listless at the start today but feeling great by the end. Strange endorphin's effect on energy and happiness. Centred mostly around Potts Point with some stairs and intervals and lots of UBMs and abbs. Plenty of competition out front with Toy Boy becoming more and more confident. I was gong to take it easy but started to feel better and better and pushed it hard on some of the intervals.

HuRTS Fartlek

New session suggested by the Chairman. 7mins, 6mins, 5 mins, 4mins, 3mins, 2mins,1min with 1 float between efforts.

Ran from the Hyatt around all the wharves to the end of Barangaroo and back with a short out and back to the bridge to fill out the full 35 mins.

I can't be bothered going into the splits but I managed exactly 8k in 35 mins - 4:22 pace.

Ran by myself most of the way and found it really tough. Looking at the watch so much doesn't help. I had been sick on Sunday and the body still wasn't quite right. I was thankful for the shorter session.

10k all up.

Big turnout today. Paired up with Glenn Morgan so there was plenty of good banter. Tough work boxing. Closest I come throwing up.

Run Home

Ran home alone in cool but sunny conditions. Took the slightly longer Cremorne Point route without really knowing why other than great conditions and a beautiful evening. Put some good splits in when I was feeling strong and kept a solid intensity the entire way. Arrived at the Wharf in good shape.

16.5k in 1:25.

Warrior Tombstones

Feels like I have been doing this session a lot lately. Warrior has a new space and is making the most of it. Warmed up with a loop of the triangles step-ups at the bus stop, 25 incline, 25 leg raises, 25 dips, 25 leg raises, 25 declines, 25 leg raises. Ran down to the CQ stairs for 3 reps and back to the bus stop.

Long run up the Cahill, down the Cumberland stairs and 6 sets of the pylon stairs.

50 calf raises.

2nd run was Tunnel of Love, 25 declines, down and up the Rocks stairs, 25 declines, long loop up the Cumberland stairs, along the Cahill, down the Pylon stairs up the Tunnel of Love.

Banged out some more pushup, runs and abb sets before heading home.

32 degrees. one of the hardest sets of the year.
