    I quit smoking in either Feburary or March this year, i've also quit drugs and drastically cut down on alcohol this year, i have now finally got my fitness up and bodyfat down to reasonable levels as of last week, despite many setbacks.

    Unfortuantly i've just had a 1 week break and stupidly stuffed my fucking face all week so as of Monday im gonna kick my ass back into high gear. My main goals for the next month (November) are to get my bodyfat down to 8% and get my fitness up to a crazy level, which i'll test with my 5km run. Skill training will come second and strength third for now.

    Bodyfat as of 21/10/05 : 10.5% ill test this again tomorrow to see how much i gained in the last week

    Fuck rest! Measured my bodyfat this morining and its now at 12%!

    I bought an MP3 player today and just got back from a GC sprint session, hard shit but i don't think that doing sprints are any harder than doing burpees this way. Still i love this so i've added another CG session on Wednesday.

    I've been inspired by Polynikes crazy cardio thread, i've set myself a challenge for Saturday 26/11. The closest pool to me is probly between 6-8kms away from my house, im planning to run to the pool, swim 15 laps (750m) then run back and try to complete the Bas Rutten, all round workout CD, which is 30mins of shadow boxing and calisthenics.
