Nice night for an evening in I guess….
The SK is a dork. She will do sit ups until the skin is worn clear off her back and think it is funny how that happened. Crazy gurl. I wish I was there to help her do the right thing with that. Technique is all important….Grrrr…. Miss her more than Beer.
I was feeling down till I watched this
hinukshines asked: You are so very important to me in my world :)
Motivation MK 3
There were a few things that got me motivated today:- 1. I said to myself to stop being an ass because she is over there doing it hard and you are bitching about not having the motivation to go for a run…. 2. I want the SK to be impressed with my efforts… 3. One of the girld that I follow (makes me sound just a little like a stalker) did 20 Miles…. MILES! that is 33km....
After Grog Head hurt?
Ok folks someone just brought up a thing. Something that just isn’t right…. Hangovers…. Well after weeks of drinking to excess in Japan I learned that the little Japs (I can say this because I have Jap heritage and I love it) invented Miso soup. This stuff is like panadol breakfast and a tall glass of water before you went to bed. It is made with fermented Soy beans and seaweed...
Motivation MK 2
So I got my sorry ass out of bed early and went off to do my run… took me 20 mins to get down stairs and get my friggen shoes on.. then I stood at the gate for a while well long enough to look like a dick but I got out there and did it.a light 4 k in 20:16 (2mi 854.45320 yd or so the calculator tells me) and tomorrow I am going for a 10 k (6mi 376.1330 yd again the calculaator) in under 60...
Funny how I was the motivation for the SK to start running and keep fit and now she is not here I am struggling to get motivated…. I do not understand.
Running this week.
Ok so I did a couple of little runs just small 2 to 5 km things… Then today I got myself a little motivated… 10 K in 56:26. Not bad for an old fella…. altho I would have done better if i ran all of the way… next week tho… 55 min… Same run same time…. Still miss the gurl tho.
missing girl fitness and drinking
So folks…. The Sex Kitten is gone and fuck it is hard to get motivated…. I was looking to do 100km per month but now that she is gone, running wise but I can’t even find the motivation to do 10km per week….. Funnily enough I feel old now she has gone cranky that I don’t get my girl and unmotivated when it comes to exercise… FFS…. I started her on this road...
Right. So the Sex Kitten has gone away and I went for my first run today since she left. Not the best time and not the worst but it was so hard to get motivated. I wanted to just stop… normally that only lasts for a few hundred meters after I start but it was the whole way round… But it is a start…. In total I did 7.5 Km and averaged 6 min per k so not too bad…. but not the...
Allergies and the neighbours kid
Ok so we have just come home from Tasmania and I have been struck down by my rebelling body. My nose is stuffed up my throat is sore and IF I could have had my head cut off I would have. Damned wattle trees in Tasmania were everywhere and they were in full bloom while we were there. So aside from that we are home now and all I can hear, while I am here trying to get better, is the stupid screaming...
Hermit Crabs teach a lesson
So we (the Sex Kitten and I) had a little wander on the beach and I find this little cute Hermit Crab…. So I pick him up and say “Hey Babe look at this little guy” she comes over and ooh’s and aaah’s a little and the little bastard decides that it is a good time to find a soft point in my hands (that are used to office work not manual labor) with his tiny knife sharp...
So I am sitting here just surfing the web and reading tumblr and the sex kitten says ‘something something Kate Middleton something Boobs’ well that is all I got anyway and it struck me… I have not even looked up these pictures……. So I did…. and yawn….. I am not sure what I was expecting…. Dancing boobs…. Dolly parton sized boobs… A small...
going shopping now
Time to take the girl child shopping…….for food while we are away in Tasmania.
The Residential area that I hate!
So this morning when I was quietly doing my own thing the yappy stupid dog from next door decided to have a scrap with a cat also living next door. Being like I am I just ignored it for about 15 min expecting the neighbors to maybe discipline the dog by saying ‘stop that’ at the very least, or maybe they could have yelled at it. Needless to say they did neither of those so the dog and...
100 km in a month Again
I think that when my lil sex Kitten leaves me for the blue yonder I am going to try for another 100 km in a month…. anyone interested in jumping on board for October?
The Sex Kitten said I should write something… But I have not really been doing anything…. Well that is not entirely true. My father came to Darwin last weekend, arrived a few days earlier than I expected, which was a bad thing. After a few weeks of not doing much we went for a run to the caravan park where my father was staying, about 5 k. I stopped off and picked up some breakfast...
hinukshines asked: We need to run :)
So I have gone back through my times for the last 9 months and my best run was down in Melbourne with a total 5 km time of 24:05. at 4:47 per km… not bad for an old fella…. still got a long way to go but hey. So that was in January and I put it down to melbourne being less humid for the run time… Now at the same time I was running 26 minutes for 5 km……So If...
Well I have been away. no reason really for it but I have just been focused on work and the family. I have some good news that is usually accompanied by bad news. So we can go alphabeticaly… I am back at 89-90 kg. No big deal really but annoying as all hell. This is partly due to my diet, partly due to my self control and partly due to the hours I have been working. The good news is...
Ok so no exercise today
Except for two games of indoor cricket. Pfffft I need to get out there and really test myself. It is harder because the brat is here, normally she does not live with me so when she is here I want to spend heaps of time with her whice is in the middle of the best time to exercise….. As per my last post I take her with me to some events and sometimes I take her but it has to be fun for her...
The Brat and running club.
I just took The Brat to running club to do a light (for me) 2 km run. Last time she got to about 1 km and cried, but not this time. She is 13 and just about to hit puberty, so I think that exercise will give her an out for the emotional turmoil that she is about to go through. Tonight I was expecting some drama and a few tears and I was not let down. There was drama and tears. However...
Cycling to work and my fault
So we just got home from cycling to and from work today. Missy SK had a spin class at lunch and did 5km of running after the ride into work. Good Job I recon, I did just over 4 k run but no spin class…… Apparently this is all my fault, the running the cycling the eating plan the fact the earth spinns and the fact tha gravity makes things harder to move, my fault. So I would like to...
I have up dated my Daily Mile again too. I have moved my ass 65 KM this year. but that is both cycling and running. I think I need a new challenge.
The beautiful SK recons I should update more. But I have nothing to say. I am reading about you all almost every day I am also training every day BUT I am not writing. I am sorry I just do not know what to say when I have nothining going on.
Medication and tomorrow.
Ok so if the penicillin that I am taking now for the tonsilitis keeps working at this rate I should only have a sore throat for a little while longer and I should start feeling like a human again tomorrow morning, which is justification enough to go for a run. SOOOOO I am going for a RUN TOMORROW YAY! (well I hope). Same deal as today but, air out the room. I think it will only be a small run,...
Stupid Tonsils. The doc said I have tonsilitis. Gave me antibiotics. Stupid tonsilitis. Two days they recon before I start to feel better. PFFFFT. I wanted to go for a run today…
Folks I am sick. Sick enough to go to the Dr (which I never do). Sick enough to wear a long sleeve shirt to bed in Darwin and have two blankets and a sheet on. Sick of lying here in bed on my laptop wanting to go for a run ride walk or any activity. My whole body is sore from inactivity over the last couple of days. FML. I would do all of the above if breathing was not like razor blades down my...
The New Car and customer service in Darwin...
I would like to congratulate those stupid people that seem to insist in making the wrong decision and working in customer service when they have no clue what customer service is. So after a few years and much tooing and frowing we went loooking for a new car. The gurl decided on a Nissan Micra as a get around town thing. We assessed the budget, looked at the price and she took one out for a test...
Happy New Year Everyone.
If I get bored there are problems. BIG Problems. So to head them off the gurl decided to help me do stuff. It was all stuff that needed to be done but I just don’t have the motivation or time or both at the same time to do them. So off we went. Then I was bored again, the dun went down and well it was all over. Then in the shower I decided that we should go out to desert. And so we did. Was...
I am reading lots of posts for people that are “looking forward to 2012” and “can’t wait for 2012”. Me, personally, I had a great year this year and will enjoy the next few days with the gurl. 2012 will come around soon enough. Same as the finish line on a run. I intend to finish strong and continue to enjoy the now which will set me up for another great year in...
Hinukshines: Tumblr observations for this week: →
hinukshines: 1. You don’t need to ‘detox’. That’s why you have a liver. Stop eating shit and let your body repair itself. ‘Detoxing’ for days does NOT give you the green light to eat crap for the rest of the week. 2. Saying you’re ‘losing weight the healthy way’ by starting with a 7 day ‘water detox’ is just… This is my gurl and how she observes life. She cracks me up
KM 101 - Last Post for this time!!!!
OK So that is done. Ticked off my list of things to do Next is 101 km in 28 days but I think I will wait till May this year for that one cuz it will give me something to do while I am away. Well Done to Melaniecanrun and Hinukshines for completing this too. In the end it was harder than I thought it would be, but it still was not too hard to do again. Stats: 101km in 31 days average pace...
Sooty the rooster and todays run
We recently discovered that we have a rooster. We discovered this because what we thought was a young chicken decided that he would start to crow in the mornings. His Name is sooty (because he is all black). The last rooster we had was called Bruce after Bruce Springstein (The Boss) because he walked in as a very young rooster and tried to hen peck the fully grown chickens infront of the existing...
KM 101 - Second last Post
Well Looks Like I will be the last across the line for this challenge…. Well done to the Sex Kitten who has done 108.15 km as of todays work out. Melaniecanrun is at 99.16 and I am at 94. something. Well done girls I will catch up to you in a sec I just have to re-tie my shoes and harden up. Thinking back on what the idea was 101 km in 31 days seems so easy but life has a way of...
KM 101 - Post OMFG look at the date.
Well it is the day before due and I am so close I could smell it. FML I was so on track that I was thinking about upping the ante to do it in 24 days. but it is all due tomorrow and I have 15 km to do. 15!. God Damn it. So I either go and do 15 km today OR 10 today and 5 tomorrow…. I was hopeing to avoid this kind of thing but Oh well. It is not as if I can’t do it but there...
KM 101 - Post 4 a little late
Ok so with all the excitement of my mate coming up I forgot to do the thing. But here it is: As at Sunday 18 Dec My score was 75.78 Hinukshines was 81.93 km And Melaniecanrun was OK so it will all be worked out in the wash… Sorry Baybee and Melaniecanrun. As at 21 dec my score is 86.04km. Sooooo even though I had all that time off I should be able to drive this in as will the SK.
Drinking and Friends and Running and drinking.
So I have been spending the last week ish with my mate from Sydney. I have known him for 20 years this coming year and I still think he is a good lad. It was his birthday so I flew him to Darwin to have a party with me, well actually I flew him here to be my drinking buddy and see how intoxicated we could get before someone died. Once upon a time it would have been drinking until he went home but...

One of my fav Quotes
not-just-strong-for-a-girl-deac asked: I'm glad to see you're going to have a go at the 5 in under 25! The Race Epic thing is whatever distance you want. The point is to just run on NY eve. It can be at night but I don't run in the dark so I'm going in the early morning. :)
Can you help?
There are a few things that will have an effect on your life as dealing with someone that you love that has a terminal desease. I don’t normally do this but I am this time because I know the pain of watching someone I was close to die from cancer. So this is a link to a guy that I know personally who is raising money for cancer research. Can you please show your support by donating or...
