twas the night before christmas (well, almost)
it's christmas time. i've spent the evening scouting for princess related items for a young relative which says princess for her, but is also influenced by my own secret agenda of style/quality/independence/strength/ambition to one day complete triathlon.
i know it's a familiar cry; but it's been a busy month, and has resulted in absolutely no training activity for EIGHT DAYS
shocking, i know. usually this delayed inactivity would have me scratching at the post but i've actually enjoyed the break.
for a few days, at least, and then rectified by two heavy gym days in quick succession. the gym program i worked on with the PT has just hit five weeks, and there's two positives to report:
one being that i can now complete 30 press ups, without inducing coronory.
second being that i can use that hardcore ab looking machine, without looking like a fool. not sure how to describe it, but it's the one you stand up, elbows supported, and then pull your knees to your chest. i've always thought it looks very difficult, and was quite proud when i managed multiple repititions. then a sixty plus year old woman got on it after me and did like forty in a row. damn those fit grannies.
it's only nine weeks until the Mt Kili climb. yikes! i feel starved of oxygen just thinking about it...
