Cremorne Point swim

Reverse route to CP with PJ, Skins, Joe, Zoe, Jesse and Keith. Dived off the wharf at Old Cremorne for a relieving swim (it was 36 degrees) and then ran the longer way back. It was hot and Joe, Jesse and I are doing 3 Points tomorrow so we took it very slowly.

Monkey Bars Strength

Achilles is ok but went up to Observatory Hill for some strength work.

4x15 pull-ups, 3x10 push-ups & dips, 3x10 declines, 3x15 incline leg raises, 3x5 chin-ups, 15 curtsy squats on each leg, 10 lunges on each leg, 2x20 flat leg raises.

Ran 5 sets of stairs on the Pylon stairs. Jogged home alternating between bum kick running and knee lift skipping. Had a stretch in the park after doing 5x5 hops on each foot.

Easy hour with Hoey around the wharves, Barangarro and Pyrmont. Achilles is an issue at the moment. Felt fine for 7k and then gradually felt worse and worse.

Run Home

Felt rubbish all the way home. Achilles was sore. Hammies were sore. Had something going on in my guts. Really didn't enjoy it at all. Warrior Monday, Redleaf Tuesday and tennis last night was probably too much for my old unfit legs to cope with. Was considering getting a cab at the Spit. Happily Burkey was there to keep me going and I managed to make it to the wharf. Nice cool night helped too.

Well Summer must be almost here as we are back into the Redleaf runs with Smolly, Champ, Hoey, Liam, Quentin, Jimmy. Hot (31) and steamy made it a great choice over HuRTS. Hills are hard but time flies when you work the hills and jog easy on the rest.

Warrior Birthday Special

Hot and humid took the spring out of the step. I was stuffed after the first run past the Navy base and up the hill. All the short intervals after that were a slog. Being my birthday special I got to count all the pushup and abb reps out loud. Ended up at Beare Park for a swim in Elizabeth Bay which made the run home bearable. Great turnout with Phil, PJ, Glenn (+Alec), Glen, Youngy, Quenton, Toy Boy, Shawn, Nick, new guy Adam, Ricky, Mike A.

Harry got me this card.

The least offensive JPM photo. Saturated too small a singlet isn't flattering

Warrior Boxing

Hot at 30 odd degrees so we stayed down around Lincoln Cres. Paired up with JD who hits like a girl. Had him punching much harder by the finish. Great turnout with Henry and Morgan and Glenn brining along his boy Alec who has just finished his HSC. Worked really hard on the stairs and the punching. Tug-of-war was brutal.
