    The Art of Falling Forwards

    So...... last year ended badly. Bad news piled on bad news with a bereavement thrown in for good measure.
    I'm picking myself back up and getting back at it though. There's still plenty of stuff to work through this year before I can say things are back on an even keel, but I'm going to try and use my training as a way of dealing with the bad stuff in life.

    IronBorn Day 1 completed last night.

    Got in a couple of 5k runs in this morning (average pace 8:05 min/mile on the first and 8:50 min/mile on the second), but I really wasn't feeling it. Think I still have some kind of cold and coupled with my lack of exercising (literally like 4 short workouts) now for at least 5 weeks.

    Hopefully I'll get Day 2 of IronBorn done this evening.

    I'm switching to Heart Rate Training for my running this year as I have a few PB's I want to smash this year and last year I plateaued. Which will basically mean slowing down to speed up.

          Finally got IronBorn Day 2 completed.
          Sore from Sundays shenanigans but already feeling stronger.

          Thanks for the words of hope and encouragement EmChey and BlackButler.

            IronBorn Day 3 completed. Easy workout. More of a recovery on the fly.
            Tomorrow's workout is all core. My weakest area.
            So I know it's going to hurt.

            It's going to hurt doing it and it's going to hurt the next day too.
            But that's what you get when you don't workout for so long!
            Plan on running tomorrow as well, either to or from work. I'll see how I feel when the alarm goes off in the morning. Really not liking these dark winter morning's. I'm ready for Spring, but there's still a fair few weeks of Winter to crawl through until then.
            I swear I'm solar powered sometimes. It doesn't matter what I do in Winter, my batteries are always only half charged.
