Well, didn’t life just get a bit crazy. Being at UNSW a lot, while trying to get my business accelerating and doing my MBA. Not to mention the 3 busy kids. I don’t think I’m going to beat myself up too much about the other goals I’ve missed on. But in really ...

Very excited to say that I ticked off one of my goals today. I got my first Dan black belt in taekwondo! Even though my kalma routine left something to be desired (how did I drop them… Twice!) I still made it. Very very excited to have that belt with ...

Well, after committing to posting some more, a few things happened that have left me posting less (and training a bit less too) The main one was this: What a spectacular shiner I had! Strangely enough it didn’t hurt much, but the cut ...

I may not be blogging much, but I am still training! Since I was last here, I have done some proper running training, actual hills and intervals. Also a longer swim than in a while (1km) and played some really fun soccer games. We played two of the top teams in ...

Oh boy, it has been a difficult week to get myself going. Wednesday evening I did a really short run/walk to the shops and some yoga, but that didn’t resemble training. Thursday I did a little bit of strength training in the morning, and soccer training in the evening. Soccer was ...

As befits my training blog I should summarise what I’ve done since I last posted, it’s been crazy with life, so glad training still got a look in, even if blogging didn’t: Wednesday: Short run (5km) after a late night Thursday: A bit of strength training in the morning; ...

A pretty mundane training day for me – a little strength work first thing, a quick 700m swim at lunch, and then taekwondo in the evening. It was the evening that brought the exciting news: our Grand Master Ridvan Manav successfully went for his 9th Dan in Korea. Total pinnacle of ...

…after a very lazy day yesterday. Still a public holiday here, so didn’t have to get up early to squeeze in some exercise, but the choc chip hot cross bun pudding last night was not optimal carb loading.😉 Never mind, a quick 8km or so was super. Maybe quick not quite ...
