    5 mins cross trainer warm up

    Leg Press - 2x8 at 50kg, 1x8 at 55kg, 1x8 at 60kg
    Hamstring Curl - 4x8 at 30lb
    Squat - 1x8 with bar, 1x8 with bar plus 5kg, 2x8 with bar plus 10kg
    Deadlift - 1x8 with bar plus 5kg, 3x8 with bar plus 10kg

    Back on the wagon and into damage limitation mode after a couple of pretty awful bouts of binge eating and going out for dinner.

    I'm out again next weekend so my plan is to limit the carbs during the week to ease the bloat. I cannot have bread in the house it seems. :/

    Deadlift - 1x8 with bar plus 5kg. 2x8 with bar plus 10kg, 1x8 with bar plus 12.5kg

    Nice to be hitting my body weight on certain exercises, even if it is only a leg press.

    Up about 2.5lbs after the weekend excess, though I'm hoping a bit of that is bloat. I'll weigh in in the am and go from there.

    15 mins interval training on a treadmill - 30 secs fast, 1 min slow.

    Weighed myself again this morning and only up a pound. Feels like more!

    Decided to dial back on the bicep curls, form felt good on 6kg so I'll plug away with that for a while. Didn't kill myself on the interval training but I guess it's been a while since I've done any. Hamstrings were a little tired too.

    5km run in 31:24.

    This is my last run before my race on Wednesday so I decided to push myself a bit. Aiming for sub 30 on the day.

    I was tired and not really feeling it today. It's been a bit of a struggle to keep on the healthy eating wagon the past few weeks. Today was the first day I didn't have any junk in quite a while.

    Run in the Dark 2016

    5km run in 29:39

    Genuinely surprised I hit sub 30, that was not a pleasant run. I ate food at 6 and it hadn't properly digested by the time the run kicked off at 8 and I very much felt it. Hit a stitch quite early on and it felt like I had a stone in my stomach at the end.

    Still glad I ran though. :)

    Ah that's brilliant well done

    Finally back on the wagon after almost 3 weeks of no exercise and a lot of culinary excess. Tis the season I guess. Feels good to get back into it, I had an inertia built up abou the whole thing. Had to ease back into things, so took it easy tonight.
