— The Clap “Che Guevara T-Shirt Wearer“
Who would’ve thought ‘wearer’ could be made to rhyme with ‘Guevara’? (Irony: Watching “Grin Without a Cat”!)
According to the ill-measuring scales at my gym I am 103-104kgs, which is definitely the lightest I have been for now more than a decade. Crazy. I wouldn’t believe it however my body shape is definitely changing. I have always had a bit of a gut and I still do, but at the top of my stomach just below my rib cage I can feel (hard) muscles for the first time ever. That is surprising and it means that my body shape is transforming to yet another iteration compared to previous couple of times when I have gone exercise crazy. I am certainly the fittest I have ever been when even now when I am totally fluey (after a big night out with Mel and Clif on Friday night, after seeing Mel at the conference (and Ben), w00t! lol!) I do sub-6:30 2km ergo times.
My tennis elbow has almost mended itself. I had been doing too much exercise without enough rest time, so my body revolted. The tendons in my left arm that are used to do basically any upper-body pushing or pulling movement had had enough. I had been doing some very restrictive weights for a while now and walking to and from the gym to compensate for the loss of energy burning exercise due to the inability to do my normal weight regime. Plus I added an extra 20 minute-plus walk into my daily routine (ie down Glebe Point Road to buy some apples or something). Now they are feeling much better and it may be almost time to start back on some more intensive weights.
Back to work…
