My Mudder Brudder Si and I powered through and completed the circuits in good time. I may have to re-design some of the circuits as they were quite heavy on the legs. That being said, I suppose I need to build up my legs, on the other hand I want to go for a run tomorrow so destroying my legs is probably not a great idea.

I’m still eating quite well, chickent, brocolli and brown rice for lunch, chicken, kale and courgettes for dinner. Hopefully I will be able to keep up the good eating and avoild cake and booze at least until Sunday (where Sunday dinner at my Auntie’s will undoubtably beyond any sort of human resistance and frankly it woulod be rude not to indulge). All in all, training and nutrition going well this week. 6 more months of this and I’ll be a machine (hopefully)!
