    So last night I tested pull-ups and hit 20 before falling off the bar, good to be back up there and an increase of 10 since Nov 27th :-)

    Tonight's workout - push-ups:


    Pull-ups (concentrated on going slower and full hang to really open my shoulder blades):
    12 10 7 10 10

    Had to pick up my car this morning from where I'd left it last night, approx 3 miles away, it was a nice day so decided to run it instead of getting a lift.

    First time I've run more than a hundred metres at a time for many months, so felt pretty good that I did it in 24 mins and averaged 8.08 min/miles :-)

    I'm sure I'm not going to be walking to well tomorrow though, my calves are feeling pretty tight tonight.

    I wasn't wrong, 5 days later and my calves are just back to normal... guess that means that I need to get off of my arse and out running a little more often

    Thanks Gwamma, all good. Just a reminder that I've been getting lazy and pushed it too far first time back on the road.
    Need to ease back into it, maybe start with a short run once a week to begin with.

    Was feeling a little wiped yesterday, so decided to do a test day instead of training.
    Max push-ups dropped back to 35 and was knackered after them, so didn't even attempt pull-ups.

    Looking back, my sleep hasn't been fantastic this week and rushing around at work has meant that I've skipped lunch a couple of times, which is no biggie in the grand scheme of things, but it's meant that my protein and calorie intake has been reduced. I've certainly lost a little muscle on my arms though and I have to train hard and eat a horse to maintain anything over my natural set point.

    Will focus on getting enough protein & calories this week and hopefully sleep better and see how it goes.

    So push-up workout is back on track:



    Some random meals from the past week:


    Chicken in a spicy tomato sauce, with golden kumara and cauliflower.



    Roast pork belly and kumara and veggies.

    Lol don't think anyone is offended Gwamma :-D

    Got up early this morning as I couldn't sleep, so was in work by 0730, which meant I escaped early and was home by 1700.
    Mowed the front and back gardens, sat in the sun for a while and then cooked dinner.

    Gravy steak chilli, with red kumara and mixed salad. I love the way my old cast iron pot makes everything taste good :-)
