My crap

for those that don't know. i have been attempting to be on an exercise bender for the past year. it all startd out well enough. i lost 40 kgs, i started to get 'buff'. then it all went downhill.

the new year has rocked around, i start my diploma of arts (ceramics) on the 6th of feb, and i have entered into the Oxfam 100 km trailwalk. so i have joined the gym at tafe and today i went for a walk.

i walked the long way to tafe, via bike tracks and a friends house, then over to chadstone and back home. 21km on the button (according to my good ol' GPSr). sustained 6km/hr so it took me 3 and a bit hrs. pretty good. i forgot to have my camera with me so no pics, but i will get back into the habbit of taking more pics soon.

hopefully if i keep up the walking and other exercise i shoudl shit the 100 kms in a target of 30 hrs. (you have 48 to do it)

perhaps your tardy team-mates will take longer than 30 hours! uh-oh!

once home i had something to eat and then went out for a bit more. ended up with 24km under my belt yesterday.

my left knee is a bit dodgey this morning, but otherwise i feel pretty good. let's see how tred i am by the end of the day.

side from that 19 sleeps till TAFE! (the arts diploma) it's ganna be interesting. i don't have any deep seated love for ceramics, but hopefully it will give me a good grounding in kiln/temperature usage, which theory should follow through to glasswork.

"shit the 100 kms in a target of 30 hrs"

That was quite a mental image there.

Out of curiosity... how did you lose the 40kgs?

exercise. a BUTTload of it. and i dieted. atkins. i had NO more than 15 carbs a day. lotsa meat. it's hard, but achievable. and after 2 weeks i was shedding weight. the last 5 kgs was the hardest.
