Program progress:

as your body screams....

Had the nursery rhyme stuck in my head as my daughter planted it as I left the house.

Checking in

Mixed week, but got everything done. Busy at work so lacked a bit of focus. Next week should be better.

Interesting lesson for me with the strong finish run: started deliberately slowly, focused on trying to stay steady on a familiar route and then finish with a flourish. Ended up running my second fastest 5k!

Clearly need to manage my pace better for greater consistency and ‘leaving something in the tank’.

Week 2 ✔️

Great early run today, needed to get it done as I have a full day of cricket coaching and umpiring today. Nice to be out early when all is crisp, fresh and quiet

Good week all in all. Solid on workouts and good on diet even though not 100%

New Toy🚣‍♀️

New concept2 for cross training, been meaning to get one for a while. Fun 30 min session for today’s workout. Will be fun to take it outside when the weather improves.

Week 1️⃣✅

Week one done, feeling good about the light workouts, although legs fell heavy on the run today. Looking to nail diet this week, cooking packed lunches for the week now.

Ticking along

Enjoying the rhythm of the program, even with a few wobbles on workouts and missteps on diet. Halfway came quickly!

Cold snap here in England this weekend, a 10k run in sun, sleet, hail, rain and wind this afternoon.

Back on it.

Missed those leg Builders! Back on the exercise from yesterday, catching up on missed workouts for week one.

Also, after a year of Kenzai, and seeing I was in for the long run, my wife banished me from the kitchen. Finally finished my Kenzai zone in an outside room, all set now.

Fluffing my lines

Not a great finish with work travel and nagging injury. Managed to sneak in a 45 minute rowing session in the gym before dinner this evening though. May need to rerun the last two weeks before Christmas festivities kick off!

Still Here

Got that dreaded reminder that I’ve been silent for a week. Still chugging along, avoiding legs and only light skipping as calf strain healing slowly. Diet good, almost there.

Mid program

Feeling this mid program slump in motivation. Keen to re-fire this week and end strong.

Changing seasons

Feeling that mid program slump this week, but sticking to it. Lovely run this morning, clear and crisp.


Past 2 days have felt a real grind. No rhythm in skipping, trudging through the exercises. All done though, but a reminder of the motivational challenges that lurk in the later weeks.


Change of scenery with a lovely day in England. Working out outside is a nice change.

Started KB1 this time last year, with great results and became a Konvert. 2018 saw a few programs, just finished a great 10k effort.

Thought long and hard about ending the year with another 90 day program; plenty of reasons not too but then again there always are!

Looking forward to the next 90 days with you all, seen a few familiar faces already.
