I had never thought of the rowing machine for those intervals. I like that idea thanks.

Recently I read this short blog on getting sugar out of one's diet. You may already know this stuff but just in case there is some food for thought.

Default great work

Hi Chris

Sounds like you are an old hand at all this, you can probably show us a thing or 2, so I will be watching your posts with interest. I also took a look at your running blog too, look good.

I work in a School of Sport and Ex Science (only as admin) but I am surrounded by people doing research and would be really interested in your project work.

Interval training on the rower is a killer! I am currently doing the TTK5 from TT manual and the interval training for B is a 20 hard 40 easy split, which is about all I can manage on the rower but it's hard out as you don't get long to recover.

The other interval training session A is 45/90 split so I do that on the bike, but if there is no bike avaiallbe I have managed to do it on the rower, but it's hard work, really hard work so well done for managing yours.

One of my goals is same as yours, no alcohol for 6 weeks and I have restrict sweets. So far I have not managed either 100%, but I am trying.

cheers Katie

I believe that the best way to address this is to set process goals and let the results take care of themselves.

That's exactly how I feel too! For me, it's mostly pushups and chinups - I struggle with 10 pushups now, when 2 years ago, I could do twice that fairly easily, and I can't do actual chinups at all now. It's partially a matter of weighing more now, but I'm certainly weaker than I was, and that's hard to adjust to mentally.

Process goals are good!

How are you doing on your research/writing?

Hi all,

Have to be quick today as I am in the middle of writing a quiz that I am running tonight. I know, I know, I shouldn't put it off until the last minute but there's just something about that deadline that motivates me!!

Ran for a mile and a half (very slowly ;-( ) as a warm up and because I want to build my running up again.

TT Bodyweight Abs Workout B

Prisoner squat x 10
X body mountain climber x 5 per side

Split squat x 8 per side
Elevated press ups x 5 per side (very poor with left arm up and right arm down - muscle inbalance that I'll need to work on I think)
Plank with leg raise x 5 per side

Med ball chop x 8 per side
Side plank - 20 secs per side
Reverse bridge - 10 secs.

Went through twice rather than 3 times - steady progress!

100 KB swings

I'll try to catch up with you all later.

Hi Chris! I already welcomed you to TC9 in my reply to your post in my thread but I thought I'd come and I'd do it on your thread too.

It's good to have you back - I always enjoyed your insight and comments on previous contests and I'm looking forward to it this time around too.

I also want to thank you for all the free information on your web-sites and blog. I found the information on setting goals particular useful and I still refer to it as part of my regular goal-setting and follow-up exercise.

Best of luck to you ol' friend!
