So unenthused this morning when the alarm went off.

Cancelled my booking for a gym session on Friday and moved it to Saturday - hopefully an extra day of recovery will help.

10k run - 51:14

So annoyed - was aiming for sub-50.

At your size anything close to 50 is still nice work. I am guessing ti was warm and humid as hell out there too ? or was this on the treadmill?

Cheers buddy.

I got out first thing this morning and ran along the canal down to Marina Bay. Fortuitously, this was probably the first morning in weeks where it was (relatively) cool.

The fault in missing sub-50 is firmly with me, looking at my splits, I lost it around 4/5km part when my pacing went awry.

Weight 98.2kg

Trying to stay motivated on the leaning out process - started at around 103kg back in July and am now at around 98kg. Feel as though I am seeing progress in body composition, but the scales aren’t really moving. Feel like I probably need to be around 92ish to be at 8%, which is the point at which I will switch it up to putting on muscle. That said, I am seeing some changes in composition and objectively speaking I am still getting stronger in my lifts.

Head f**k.
