Epsom Salts, now that’s living dangerously

With two sleeps until Tough Mudder, it’s into the bath with some epsom salts for me! Well, after some foam rolling, that is. Now that’s living dangerously! Speaking of which, anyone recognise our little friend on my shirt?

I thought you might be interested to know how my BioSignature testing went this week. In short, BioSignature testing involves using callipers to measure the amount of body fat from certain points around the body to help assess hormone levels and to help inform a course of action to improve health, fitness and well-being.

But before I get to the results, I thought I’d also let you know read on to learn about my diet over the last couple of weeks and the results of my BioSignature testing

There can be only one … this week

There is quite a bit in today’s post. It didn’t start out that way, but things just grew.

In this post there is some Body Talk and the usual summary of my workout. I also reveal the results of today’s BioSignature Testing and share my musings on stupid balance-based exercises.

BioSignature Testing session 2 and some fun in a not-for-profit pub

Almost a week has passed since my last post. I was away in Melbourne for work and then had a busy weekend of family things that I won’t bore you with!

Today was the beginning of a new program which means, yes, another bioSignature testing session. This caught me a little off guard as Dirk had said that we wouldn’t test again until early August. I should know by now though that Dirk can, and readily does, change his mind!

I was not expecting good results, mostly because I did not eat very much or very well during my three days in Melbourne last week.

Oh and the meal I had at Charcoal Lane on Gertrude Street, on the fringes of Melbourne’s CBD, while very tasty indeed, probably wasn’t quite what Dirk would have recommended.

Hmmm, and to be honest, Dirk would not have been impressed at all to learn that we followed Charcoal Lane with a visit to a not-for-profit pub on Manchester Lane called Shebeen. Well it wouldn’t be visiting a pub that would have been frowned upon, more the beer or two I had! But all for a good cause.

My quest begins

Today starts my Tough Mudder quest.

My mission over the next 12 weeks or so is to build up both my strength and my running endurance. This will involve:

  • strength training
  • cardio/running training
  • some proper eating!
