The re-start

So, I called the gym, my membership doesn't run out till June next year so there's no point stopping now. This is both good and bad. Bad because I could do with the membership fee but good because I can still go! I am going to hammer it, see if I can't do the Iwan Thomas Twitter hashtag thingy #RippedByXmas. Got to give it a bash though hey? First go was this morning, if I'm not too stiff in the morning I shall bash it again (fnar fnar). 

TT this week was pretty ace. We won 8-2 which gave us 5 points and sent us top of div 2. Unfortunately I lost 1 of my singles matches, which was a bit annoying, still ok though. We got a bonus result last night as our nearest challenger for the top spot lost 8-2! That leaves us 3 points clear at the top, and we play that particular team next Thursday. 
We also have the individual tournament next Wednesday. Not going to take it too seriously though, just use it to get my eye in for the match the next night. 

I have also decided to cut down on using my bike, mainly because the bloody thing is breaking bit by bit and I can't afford to replace the damned parts. Sooo, running shoes and Garmin at the ready then. 

Let's go!

NEEED to sort it out!


Ain't been here for a while, and I know I should do. 

TT has started again, we're 4 matches into the season now with 3 wins & 1 loss,  & I'm still pissed that we lost. I know I should just forget it and move on ready for the next match but it irritates me. Ah well, I suppose I'll get over it soon, the best way would be with a damned good thrashing of RAL in our next match on Monday night. We shall see. 

I haven't run much. 
Back in April I set myself a extremely unrealistic goal of completing MK marathon in under 3 hours. Bearing in mind the furthest I have ever run is 18 miles in 2.5 hours, it wasn't a very good thing to attempt. Needless to say there is no chance of me doing it as I've not even entered MK for 2014. I still like the idea of a sub 3 hour marathon though so ANY running I do will be targeted towards that achievement and all my running related tweets will have the #sub3 thing going on. 

Because of work and home life, I've not been able to hit the gym as much as I'd like. I fear I my have to cancel my membership and put the fee towards something else as I'm defo not getting my monies worth. I will try and nail it though in the lead up to Xmas and perhaps get myself a multigym to use at home outside. I shall be having words with my work colleagues to see if they can assist me with this, ie they come in at 6.30 in the evening if I can get my lazy carcas in at 6.30 in the morning. Me getting in is the tricky part as I am a lazy lazy snecker. 
I do have another reason for nailing the gym and getting my arse out running again, well 2 actually. 1, I want to get myself in some sort ripped shape for mrs wifey, and 2, I have just taken delivery of new uniform for work and the trousers have a 30 inch waist. I, do not have such a waist, not far off it mind but they're still a bit on the snugg side. 

I will come back sometime soon and let you know how goes it.
