A big thank you to producer Joel Tozer and to the very brave Sarah and Elizabeth for sharing their stories on national TV:

April 2014 Fitness Diary!

Tuesday, April 1: Back exercising after one rest day to recover from Sunday's full half marathon: shoulders, chest, triceps, sides, and lower back.

Wednesday, April 2: My legs had recovered by now, so I punished them some more with plenty of weights.

Friday, April 4:  Weights and cardio today: back, lats, traps, biceps, calves, and my first run since Sunday's full half marathon, a respectable 3 kilometers in 14 minutes 40 seconds:


March 2014 Fitness Diary!

Sunday, March 2:  I started March with a pretty intense weights session at the Hamilton Hotel: back, biceps, lats, traps, forearms, and calves. I had hoped to start March's campaign the day before, but I forgot that March 1 was a public holiday, and my local two gyms were both closed.

Monday, March 3: A sub-58 minute 10-kilometer run and a core workout. My accident and injury prone calves felt 100%:

Tuesday, March 4: A quick chest, shoulders, and triceps workout. And no more exercise until Saturday due to a 6-hour TV interview shoot, a trip to Immigration, and an orientation for my morning classes. Busy few days!

February 2014 Fitness Diary!

Saturday, February 1: A whole lot of walking today. I actually went to Itewon intending to go to the gym, but when push came to shrove, I decided to go for a long 4ish-hour long walk instead.

Sunday, February 2: Back to Itweon for a inclined treadmill session and weights: lower back, sides, calves, and traps:


Monday, February 3: Just a whoe lot of walking around walking errands on this the first official day of my vacation. At a rough count, I'd say about almost 7 hours all together.

Tuesday, February 4: A long over due legs and back workout in the gym today: hamstrings, thighs (extensions, presses, squats) back, biceps, and lats.

January 2014 Fitness Diary!

Wednesday, January 1: 2014 began in my trusty Sunday and public holiday gym in Itewon with a sharp chest, shoulders, triceps, and lower abs workout. 2014 will be the year of the lower abs, hopefully.

Friday, January 3: An all-cardio workout for my first cardio photo of 2014:


Saturday, January 4: An exhausting legs and core workout.

Monday, January 6: Back, lats, traps, and biceps, and my first fastish run in a while:

Toreador Song from Carmen

This took me months to learn on piano, and as usual I messed it up a little with the camera on. Still, it was a fun piece to play, and I enjoyed every moment I spent practicing it:

December 2013 Fitness Diary!

Sunday, December 1: A chest, shoulders, and triceps workout at the Hamilton Hotel to start what will hopefully be an action-packed exercise month.

 Monday, December 2: A 36-minute treadmill session after class:


Tuesday, December 3: Legs, lower back, and traps after the last long Tuesday of the semester.  

Wednesday, December 4: A 2.1 kilometer sprint - I had been hoping for 3, but it just didn't happen. Some abs workout to end the session:

November 2013 Fitness Diary!

Friday, November 1: The month started with a very short and unintense shrugs and bicep curls at home. A cold is well and truely on its way, and I've got a busy month ahead of me at work.

Tuesday, November 5: Back in the gym for a chest, shoulders, triceps, and calves workout.

Thursday, November 7: A short workout: back, biceps, lats, traps, lower back, and calves.

Tuesday, November 12: It's the 12th already and I've yet to do any cardio. I corrected that today with a seven-minute sprint and a chest, shoulders, triceps, legs (lightly), and calves workout. And I needed that:


October 2013 Fitness Diary!

Wednesday, October 2: October began a day late with one of the hardest weights session I've ever completed: legs (presses, free squates, hamstings, and calves), back, lats, traps, biceps, and lower back. Two days later and my muscles are still in a state of pained shock.


Friday, October 4: A solide pre-Korean class workout: chest, shoulders, abs, and sides.


Saturday, October 5: Lats, calves, and lower back (the only body parts not hurting) and a quick 1.6 kilometer sprint:



Monday, October 7: A satisfactory three-kilometer sprint in well under 15 minutes:
