Day 443: A Challenging Day

G'day Shredders,

Today was a difficult day as I had an unexpected "event" pop up that required my immediate attention. As a result I missed a pre-scheduled workout for the first time in over 100 days (discounting my bout with food poisoning 2 days ago).

Rather than dwell on this I made sure I still got in a mild "skipping shred" once I got home, however it is so cold at the moment (about 2 Degrees) I didn't last long outside. In light of this I have scheduled a "double shred" tomorrow to get in my required caloric expenditure for the week.

P.S. I apologize for my lack of comments on my fellow Shredder's blogs in the last 2 days. Things have been very hectic with work recently, however I have pledged to myself to be firing on all cylinders from here on out until the end of Mission 4.

Day 32 of 84

Nutrition: My meal plan was spot on today.

Training: I got in a HIIT Cardio workout hitting the all-important last 2 minutes at 16km/h on the last cycle...Yay!

Hey Adam,
Hope your event wasn´t an important one. You just take it easy and do what you can. Don´t know how you do all you do anyway! Whenever you come by our blogs, it´s a red-letter take your time knowing that whenever is great.

Thanks Lynda for your kind words, I actually do check everyone's blog every day, I would go into Shredder Withdrawal if I didn't! Just some days I don't have time at night because I need my 8 hours sleep!
