    I realise I havnt really been logging my slow cardio. I walk the dogs once or twice a day, anywhere from a run round the park in our estate, to long walks in woods/on the beach. Also when im on night shifts I walk up and down a rediculous number of steps (I seriously find walking up and down stairs in the middle of the night so much harder than biuke work or crazy hard gym sessions - I think its the tiredness).

    Today I worked out with my step daughter. We both did

    100 Skips
    25 x Shoulder Press (she did Push Press) with 44lbs (she used 22lbs)
    25 x Sumo Deadlift High Pulls
    25 x Overhead Walking lunge (each leg)
    25 x Swings
    25 x Pressups
    25 x Burpees

    My time = 10.50
    Step Daughters = 15.30

    Great fun working out with her, seeing her struggle and more importantly push through even when she doubted herself, was awesome.

    I discovered after reading the LHT programme again that the target reps for decline pushups are 35 each set. I didnt know that and have been shooting for 50. Technically I have already passed this stage, but I am going to stick it out until I can get 2 x 50reps. Which on todays showing hopefully will not be long. Also the Uneven Pullups target is 2 x 6 each side, but Iv done that already to so im gonna stick them out until I get 2 x 12 each side.

    Decline Pressup 1 x 50, 1 x 42
    Pullups 1 x 10 each hand, 1 x 10 each hand.

    Food today is pretty good so far
    1. Omelette with goats cheese, strawberries, grapes and smoked salmon.
    2. Tuna, Bannana.
    3. Salad with strawberries, grapes, mixed nut pieces and prawns in a mary rose sauce.
    3. Tuna.
    4. Hmmmm to be decided.

    Haha thanks my friend. What can I say, I am skilled at the art of dressing a plate (Im pretty sure I can admit to being skilled at the art of dressing a plate whilst still maintaining my masculinity Yes/No).

    The corination chicken is amazing. Im gonna cook a whole chicken (or two) later. Use one for a roast, and the other strip down and make Corination chicken with.

    Yesterday food:
    1. In a rush (no dressing of plates)....smoked salmon, boiled potatoes, banana.
    2. Can of Tuna, apple.
    3. Chicken, potatoes.
    4. Fish cakes and homemade potto wedges
    5. Same as 4 but in smaller quantity.

    Had a SIS shake after the gym between meals 3 and 4. Also some popcorn in the evening. Wanted to get another email in but not bad for a busy day.

    Today is going to involve a mobility workout and maybe some additional core work.
