Gary Tuck (Tuckiaki Running)'s Blog (6)

It's been a while.....

Almost forgot about this brilliant community hub, not that  I have forgotten what I have learnt from the Cool impossible though..... still running, still watching the foot strike, leg stance etc......... I feel amazing. 

I am no ultra runner, nor am I fast or super fit.....I don't care......well I say that, I have my aspirations of running a 50 miler in 2016 if my plan works out. Until then, I am just enjoying the run with the dogs, out on the moors and the fields, along canal…

Flexible approach to the Cool impossible foundation plan.....

So, it's been a while since I managed to write, life has been very busy.  I had fallen off the cool impossible path which I had so much enthusiasm and confidence in, mainly because I couldn't stick to the plan set out in the book. 

I am a Critical Care Nurse, I work full time and on my work days I either work 12 hour day or night shifts plus travelling on top..... so basically 06:00-21:00 is an average day. Where can I fit in the training there?

Day #7

The ups and downs of sugar detox is so unbelievably scary. I never knew how much this stuff affected my moods, my energy and my SLEEP! I am so high at night from energy, I am wired but then I sleep (eventually) and I wake up like I have crude oil for blood in my system. Sluggish, like a snail without a shell.

Day #1 B2R Sugar Detox and Training.

So, apparently.........I don't have any core muscles at all! The upper work out was tough man! 

I only managed one set of the minimum reps on each but I am happy as I started to learn how to perform the exercises and I also realised how weak I am in the core. This must be why I often get a sore back after running and from my work (as a Nurse). 

Below is my Blogger blogg link.

My Cool Impossible is in motion! …
