The Black Death Run

Recently I entered the www.theblackdeathrun.com a cruelling 10.5 mile cross country run. Its organised by a good friend and a client at work. The first 2 miles you climb up over 1000ft over some mentally rough terrain. 

This was entered in a sere moment of stupidity as I haven't run for over 2 years and I wanted to give my self a physical challenge prior to the 3 peaks in July to keep my fitness up. 

So today I attempted what was a short 5k run and surprised myself when it was a 10k and I still had the energy to keep going. 

Total route Length - 10.29k
Total time - 56.28

Know is the time that everyone wants to "start fresh" my own personal fitness goals this year are to improve my functional strength and get more involved in road cycling. I have also signed up for the 3 peaks challenge http://www.thethreepeakschallenge.co.uk/
There are also some exciting challenges in store for the first few months of the year.

the new age of free weights - ViPR

ViPR training, is something that is readily becoming more popular in gyms via the free weights areas and classes.
I recently undertook a training course in to how these work and how best to them in a class and for P.T.

The concept behind ViPR is simple its a multi-functional whole body training. It basically is a hollow rubber tube with 3 handles. The courses itself went into detail on how best to use the ViPR and how easy it is to progress and regress the free flowing movements.

After doing this training I am going to in corporate the ViPR training style into my own Strength and conditioning work out.

Look out for Videos and Pictures that will swiftly follow.
