I can’t believe that the first quarter of the year is already over!

2017 Fitness Goals

Fit Dad

The first month of 2017 is almost over and I haven’t yet updated my blog.

2017 is going to be my “comeback” year! Yes, after not being extremely active in 2016 compared to 2015, let’s just say that I can see the effect this had on me physically.

To make sure I didn’t come up with excuses, last year I started entering races I wanted to take part in this year. With the entering of races comes the need for training.

I want to be able to finish the races comfortably and not struggle through them.  Continue reading

Taking back my fitness …

It took me a while ok more like 2 months, but I’m slowly finding my way back.

First I made it back onto the road with my running.

Today I was back on a bike spinning. I haven’t hit then Cradle for some road cycling yet… But I know it will happen.

Rome wasn’t built in a day. Baby steps I will gain back my fitness.

I will be fit again.

They say summer bodies are made in Winter … I’m gonna work towards it.

I have goals.

I have dreams.

Let’s do this and get me back to being a fit!

Keep running this winter …

Winter Training

Winter Training

It’s freaking cold and unless you’re like ultra serious, getting out of bed in the mornings just doesn’t seem like an option. Putting it off until after work … well it’s much of a muchness isn’t it. The chance of you hitting the gym in the cold is just as unlikely.

This past weekend I ran my second Pirates 10km. It didn’t feel as cold as the start last year, yet it was cold. I ran the 10km and didn’t break sweat once, to make matters worse, my legs normally warm up in the first 3km … it. did. not. happen. on Sunday.  Continue reading
