So after many months of laziness, injury and site issues.... I've finally managed to get back onto posting in this blog. Since its been so long I might as well start with a little update, after my last post I spent a long time running and then dealing with a stress fracture from said running. That has now been well healed and I'm signed up to run the Super Spartan (See - http://www.spartanrace.com/midlands-obstacle-racing-super-spartan-2013.html) as well as a 10k run in London for the British Heart Foundation (See - http://www.bhf.org.uk/get-involved/events/runs/event-information/greenwich-park-jog.aspx) and possibly the Great Manchester Run but that is more as a test run to see how I'm progressing.

Now that we're all updated i might as well move on to the training. The system I've started on now is actually a relatively simple one, i chose it simply because i felt my form isn't as good as it could be. So I've dialled the weight back a little and basically started over to focus on improving my form.

The routine....Day one

Squat5 x 5
Bench press5 x 5
Barbell row5 x 5
Tricep pull down5 x 5
Weighted sit up3 x 10 to 25

Day two

Deadlift5 x 5
Romanian Deadlift5 x 5
Lat pulldown5 x 5
Millitary press5 x 5
Side bends3 x 10 to 25

Day three

Squats5 Ramped sets upto last set being +2.5kg of day 1 max
Dumbbell press5 Ramped sets upto last set being +2.5kg of day 1 max
Dumbbell row5 x 6 to 10
Barbell shrug5 x 5
Barbell twist to knee3 x 10 to 25

So that's it for now, if anyone wants any more info related to anything in this post then feel free to drop me a comment or a pm and ill get back as soon as I can. Finally, I'm raising money for the British Heart Foundation so if anyone feels generous then go here -> http://www.justgiving.com/Gareth-Suri and donate.

Be like Kazushi from Persona 3. Always wear a track/jog suit and always be prepared to run EVERYWHERE.

And toughen up with your knee problems.

Knee problems? Nah it was my shin that fractured, my knees are fine lol. That doesn't sound like such a bad idea though since i do get the urge just to run quite a lot :O
