Back on the run
Catching up with y'all
After a while being lazy, I've spent the last week on holiday completely away from tech and boy oh boy was it a fun week!

Fun games, getting to grips with my fear of heights which is apparently still there and getting to know the wifes side of the family better, which was great!

So I've decided to get back onto the fitness / losing weight wagon, aiming to complete a 10k run in under an hour for August bank holiday. If I can get under 14 st that would be a bonus, I've waivered around 15st for too long for my liking and this podge in front of me has gotta go!

I'm still coding things by the way, mostly web stuff still as there's a bit of a backlog of stuff at the day job but last years games should be getting finished and ported somtime soon also.

In terms of training, I'm doing a 4.5 - 5k jog every other day starting from saturday just gone and I'm looking into what arm exercises I can sort out for my typist like arms

Wish me luck, as I'm gonna need it. Next year, all going well I'll be aiming for a half marathon.

starting to get back on track now. 3k of jogging / walking tonight completed. Hopefully will be good to do the same tomorrow! Feeling pretty unfit so no more fizzy pop!

5k done tonight, kept off the fizzy pop so far, apart from a can of dr pepper today, felt pretty rough this morning.

Also, I decided to turn the gamejam / 10k / gamejam thing into an event to raise money for the gamers charity Specialeffect, if anyone's interested I can PM you the link of course

Another 5k last night, the walk back up the hill was the most tiring though!

Aye, it's getting back for sure.

Not feeling it too much in my legs the next day either, which is probably a good thing, I think the walk back is doing a decent warm-down for me.

It seems to be a theme of late doesn't it! Still, all good over here, hoping to put some bits together on the refresh games site today.

Just over 3km tonight with one walking break for a minute after hitting 2k, not bad. Wwill time myself again starting tomorrow again.

Think I should easily be able to do 3k a day so long as I cool down properly.

That's what this is all about now.

Remind me in a couple of weeks..
Today my sister swam a mile across Lake Windermere, so that cost me a sodding fortune in sponsorship!
(Mostly because she did it for Child Brain Injury Trust.. Couldn't very well ignore that!!!)

So, yeah, kinda sponsored out, today!!!

No worries, I kinda felt a little weird posting it so early on tbh.

That's an awesome feat by the way and a worthy charity also!

I remember Lake Windermere as a kid on my holidays to Keswick and the Lake District, including, of course, the pencil factory That must've been bloomin' freezing!

So stats fans! Tonights 5k time is 26:52. Quite happy with that, found my pace towards the end of the run i think and only stopped twice to walk for a minute.

Bit slower tonight, 5k in 27:32, that's okay though, again, two stops, but the first stop to walk was after 14 mins. Yesterdays was after 7.

Okay, 3k in a fairly sedate 17:21 followed by an uphill 1k in 4:56. Bit of a push on that one!

Are you still on target for the Just-Giving run?

...or is that out the window, now?

Just about on target to do it, not sure if I'll make it under my hopeful time of 1 hour though, been feeling constantly tired out of late, probably need to cut back the coffee and colas.

There've been more runs before tonight btw but tonight is the first of my less than 2 weeks to go runs, so I've upped the distance to 7k and completed that in around 45 minutes tonight. Looks like I'll be just over an hour at this rate but that's cool, finishing will be good enough at this point!
