Chub-thumping

I run first thing in the morning. If I didn’t, I’d find some reason not to go. I have to do it while I’m asleep

Call it “holiday pounds” or the “off season” or whatever, the fact is that I’ve done next to no routine training of any kind for a month or so. Yeah, I’ve gone on the odd run and done a handful of sit-ups, but I’ve found budgeting my time for training next to impossible during the holiday season. Well, it’s over now and I don’t have any excuses except getting the (butter)ball rolling again can be a bit of an effort.

I’m a bit anxious about my lack of training because I have Chinese New year approaching rapidly, and I need to get fit quick, otherwise O’l black lion might need a breather mid show.

Also, in just a couple months (April 25th, to be specific), Adventure race season starts up again.

Then the 5 Boro bike tour is a favorite of ours…

and before you know it, it’s Urbanathlon time again.

Plus everything in between. So, I got myself a little runner’s calendar to keep me in check and track just how much I can sweat off in the precious few weeks I have, as the rest of my comrades have been doing for at least 2 months. yeah, it should be humbling. I’m getting out of breath just typing about it.

    I’m always so proud of you, handsome. You’ll be in even better shape than you’ve ever been in no time. Let me know when you need your running/exercise/adventure race partner to help keep you moving =)
