So far this week........

Tuesday - Boathouse West run

Session: Xcountry Summer Series
Distance: 5km
Time: 25.22min
Place: 103
Pace: 5.05min/km
Splits -
1 - 5.27
2 - 5.17
3 - 5.02
4 - 4.45
5 - 4.55

It was a breezy afternoon and cooler than I had anticipated. Mind you once I started running I warmed up rapidly! I arrived a little earlier planning on going for a warm up jog before the run but somehow it never happened - there were people to meet (all these new speedygeese) and others to catch up with. I was feeling ok after Sunday's 3km run so this was a step up in distance. We started and it felt like everyone took off and I was left standing still! Strewth took off like a bat out of hell and it wasn't long before I lost sight of her. The first 1.5km was awful - I huffed and puffed and felt so unfit. But gradually, oh so gradually, I started finding my stride and at the 1.7km mark I was starting to think that this wasn't so bad. Slowly I was overtaking people and then I caught a glimpse of Strewth ahead. Well this was just too tempting - I had to try and catch her! Which explains the increase in pace for the 4th km! She said she heard me coming and its no wonder, I sounded like a steam train - an old puffing billy! I was happy with the run. My legs are strong but I lack endurance and speed but these will come with time (I hope!).

Wednesday - turning the legs over

Session: stationary bike
Time: 45mins

I hummed and haa'd and drank my coffee, trying to work out whether I could move the cycling to another day. I considered the weekend but realised that if I added any more exercise to Saturday or Sunday I wouldn't get anything else done - and what's the point of a weekend if you can't relax at some point! So I did it - got on my bike and pedalled, listening to my ipod. It probably did my legs good, turning them over after Tuesday's run. Later today I see the physio - hmmm, wonder what he'll say about yesterday's run?! (He was happy with my progress. My lower back is playing up and was quite sore which he thinks might be to an irritated disk which has resulted in the muscles tightening in that area. I have been given some stretches which I know off by heart as this is not a new occurrence for me! In fact he remarked that he has seen my back in a lot worse shape! I'm also to do a 3km run on Friday (rather than a 5km run) and if I pull up ok after that then can do a 5km run on Sunday. Talk about baby steps…)

Wednesday night - swimming.

Good swim. Surprising given that earlier that evening I had almost convinced myself that I was way too tired to go and should put iff to another day. At the last minute I made the decision to go and I'm really pleased that I did because I felt so much better for it and the bonus is that I had a really good sleep that night which resulted in me……

Sleeping In!
Which normally is not a problem, but I had a session with the trainer this morning at 6am. So it was a mad dash around the house doing last minute things like getting dressed, gulping down coffee and an interesting looking protein shake which I call the Jungle Juice because it is green; cleaning teeth, etc, dashing out the door to the car, and getting to the gym. I didn't need a warm up - I had already warmed up! The Raiders junior and senior teams were doing yoga in a room adjacent to where we were training - it was interesting to watch some of them getting into some of the more bendy poses and it took my mind off the pain I was going through! Finally got to do deadlifts today - the first since since the op, so more progress - yay! Did more cursed pushups - I hate them with a passion, as well as triceps dips. Had the shaky arms by the time I got to the shower - trying to wash hair with arms that won't cooperate is a challenge! Had brekkie with Strewth - double bacon and eggs on gluten free toast - yum! Not exactly healthy but ok to have once in a while.


strewth said...

Wow - that's a good few days training! Brekkie was great but next time I won't have the spinach -it reacted - grrrr! Have a good Friday. :)

Two Fruits said...

Well done, baby steps plus rest & relax. Don't forget, work, home & other things need time as well. You have me now doing push ups and sit ups, no wonder you don't like them, they hurt. Slow going forward for you is good going. Don't like the sound of those other aches now. Take care.

Strewth was hopping mad this morning. She thought Boathouse would be her first victory out of a zillion races!

In 1959 phentermine first received approval from the FDA as an appetite suppressing drug. Phentermine hydrochloride then became available in the early 1970s. It was previously sold as Fastin from King Pharmaceuticals for SmithKline Beecham, however in 1998 it was removed from the market. Medeva Pharmaceuticals sells the name brand of phentermine called Ionamin and Gate Pharmaceuticals sells it as Adipex-P. Phentermine is also currently sold as a generic. Since the drug was approved in 1959 there have been almost no clinical studies performed. The most recent study was in 1990 which combined phentermine with fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine and became known as Fen-Phen.[citation needed]
In 1997 after 24 cases of heart valve disease in Fen-Phen users, fenfluramine and dexfenfluramine were voluntarily taken off the market at the request of the FDA. Studies later proved that nearly 30% of people taking fenfluramine or dexfenfluramine had abnormal valve findings. The FDA did not ask manufacturers to remove phentermine from the market.
[url=]buy phentermine online[/url] Phentermine is still available by itself in most countries, including the U.S. However, because it is similar to amphetamines, it is classified as a controlled substance in many countries (including Australia). Internationally, phentermine is a schedule IV drug under the Convention on Psychotropic Substances.[1] In the United States, it is classified as a Schedule IV controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act.
Looking forward, Phentermine is being studied with another medication for obesity. The experimental appetite suppressant drug Qnexa is a mixture of Phentermine and Topiramate.
Phentermine, in doses clinically used, works on the hypothalamus portion of the brain to release norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter or chemical messenger that signals a fight-or-flight response, reducing hunger. Phentermine works outside the brain as well to release epinephrine or adrenaline causing fat cells to break down stored fat, but the principal basis of efficacy is hunger-reduction. At high doses, phentermine releases serotonin and dopamine as well, but such doses are never used in clinical medicine.

Playing bingo needs more than luck or skills and techniques, contrary to what most believe. Bingo, just like any game of chance, comes with rules and regulations that players should observe. Being a player comes with responsibilities and etiquette.

Winning the Game

The moment you figured out you won, you must immediately yell BINGO, and it should be loud enough for the floor walker to hear. The pot money shall be given to the winner once their winning card is confirmed. Well, in winning or once you know you just won, the most important thing is that you shout the winning word BEFORE the time elapses. If the game proceeds and the next number is mentioned and you failed to shout "Bingo", your winning card is disqualified. Therefore, this is the rule you must know.

There may be cases when there are two winners, and in this case the pot money shall be divided equally among the winners. Supposing there are two winning cards, the two winners will share half the prize money.

Bingo Game Rules

Bingo rules are basically the same no matter in which Online Bingo hall you play. But still it's good if you know these rules by heart. If it is your first try, then ask for handouts and inquire from pros regarding the game rules. Nonetheless, the ideal thing to do if you have questions is to ask the floor walker and not the person seated beside you. You should clarify things and doubts before the game starts because asking too many questions as the game proceeds could well distract you. This guideline also applies to those who are newcomers at casinos, those who play roulette for the first time.

Bingo halls demand an age limit of 18 years old. If you are below this age, you are prohibited to play. Some bingo houses ban alcohol inside, so players aren't supposed to take liquor nor drink it inside the venue. Smoking may also be restricted inside the venue, as there are designated smoking sections.

Take note that some Bingo houses don't allow food but some do, so it basically depends on the venue. Policies vary among different venues. For instance, some bingo halls allow reservation of cards, while others don't allow it. Some allow people to leave the venue in the middle of the game, others forbid it. But there are general policies observed in all bingo houses, such as disqualification of tampered bingo cards. There is no way you can get away with a tampered card because the walkers are adept at identifying authentic cards from tampered ones. You could be banned from a bingo establishment if proven liable of tampering a card. Hence, you should play honestly.

Interestingly, some venues offer special bingo games for kids although some halls don't allow players to have companions while playing. Suppose you bring kids with you, don't let them run around the venue and bother other gamers. They should behave well whilst you play and the game proceeds. Play quietly and don't recite the numbers you desperately want to come off because you'll be much of a disturbance if you do. Decorous playing is expectant of all players, even those who play roulette at casinos. Also, having a valid identification is important because you don't know you might win and need to present credentials.

The group delivers a single distinct [url=]gia re hang ngay[/url] for every doing work day in each and every of the marketplaces it serves. The Groupon operates as an assurance deal using ThePoint's system: if a specified amount of guys and women sign up for the offer, then the offer receives to be available to all if the predetermined nominal is not attained, no a one gets the offer that operating working day. This decreases opportunity for stores, who can manage the low cost coupon codes as quantity reductions as efficiently as earnings marketing methods. Groupon can make cash flow by maintaining about 50 % the money the customer pays for the coupon.

For illustration, an $eighty therapeutic massage could be acquired by the buyer for $forty by way of Groupon, and then Groupon and the retailer would split the $40. That is, the retailer gives a massage valued at $eighty and gets about $twenty from Groupon for it (under a fifty%/50% split up). Or, if $240 properly value of residence portray companies is obtained by the consumer for $fifty via Groupon, then the company receives $twenty five and Groupon retains $20 5. The customer gets the massage, or the home portray support, in these illustrations, from the retailer for which they initially compensated out $forty (or $fifty) to Groupon. There are certain businesses to which Groupon at first did not offer you its companies, including having images ranges and strip golf equipment nevertheless, using photographs ranges have been showcased on Groupon.

As opposed to categorised marketing and marketing, the merchant does not shell out any upfront cost to take part: Groupon collects customized knowledge from ready consumers and then contacts only men and women buyers, mainly by working day-to-day e-mail, who might possibly be fascinated in a distinctive merchandise or services.

Groupon employs a big volume of copywriters who draft descriptions for the bargains featured by e-mail and on the internet website. Groupon's marketing and advertising text for the 'deals' has been observed as a contributing situation to the reputation of the web internet site, that consists of a unique mix of thorough easy reality-examining and witty humor.

Owing to Groupon's industry area getting to be primarily composed of female consumers, the special discounts are usually targeted on the overall health, overall health and physical fitness and attractiveness markets.

There are possible problems with the group product. For occasion, a worthwhile offer you could briefly swamp a small business with as well numerous clients, jeopardizing a chance that clients will be dissatisfied, or that there will not be adequate item to fulfill the want. Hole, a substantial clothing retailer, was able to deal with 445,000 low cost codes in a countrywide deal (regardless of the fact that it experienced server troubles at a single stage), but a smaller firm could switch out to be all of a unexpected flooded with purchasers. A solitary espresso shop in Portland, Oregon struggled with an enhance in customers for a couple of months, when it marketed shut to 1,000 Groupons on the a one day it was supplied, in accordance to 1 report. In reaction to relevant issues, Groupon officers condition that 'deal' subscriptions should to be capped in advance to a affordable selection.
