Going Commando – week 7

No more Mr Nice Guy says Adam as he revs up the pace for the last two weeks of our training programme. Week 7 sees us climbing ropes and running up sand dunes backwards…

Going Commando – week 6

It’s ironic isn't it. Nearly six weeks of training and no injuries, yet all it takes are six inch Jimmy Choos, a few cocktails and a cobbled street to leave me with a twisted ankle...

Going Commando – week 5

The halfway point of our training’s past and it’s all uphill from here. Literally. Week 5 and Adam has us running further and faster than before. And the tyre makes an appearance again...

Going Commando – week 4

It's hard to believe we're nearly halfway. We're looking forward to our sessions (maybe not the ones that involve running up sand dunes), and although they push us further every time, we're enjoying the challenge. And the results of course. Muscle tone is starting to appear, and although it doesn't feel like we've lost a huge amount of weight, we're noticing higher energy levels and clothes are feeling much looser. Want to find out what we've been up to this week? Read on...

Going Commando – Day 21

Day 21: Sunday Session 12: Beauport No rest for the wicked It’s a gorgeous Sunday afternoon as we meet at Beauport beach car park, and head off at a gentle jog across the cliff paths.  We knew it was too good to...

Going Commando – day 20

Day 20: Saturday Session 11: Sand dunes Our dreaded dunes session starts badly when I arrive late, and get lost trying to find Adam and my training mate in the wilds of St Ouen.  One dune looks awfully like another, and...

Going Commando – day 19

Day 19: Friday Session 10: Waterfront ‘Ground, pound and hit the ground’ Ah, our first boxing session.  And what better way to get our revenge on our personal trainer by pummeling him mercilessly?  It was a good plan, but it seems like...

Going Commando – day 12

Day 12: Friday Location: Le Braye Session 7 We’re heading back to St Ouen’s for this session, and my heart sinks at the thought of the sand dunes, but Adam’s got something different planned.  We're heading down onto the beach to try...

Going Commando – day 11

Day 11: Thursday Location: Millbrook Session 6 We arrive at Millbrook to find a couple of rucksacks waiting for us.  As if running wasn’t hard enough, now we’re going to carry weights – 6 and 12 kilos.  We start off at a...

Going Commando – day 15

Monday: Day 15 Session 9: Aquasplash We’re in the pool again.  More underwater, which I’ve decided I don’t like.  Especially as they’ve dropped the deep end to a dizzying nearly 4 metres….  Never mind, Adam’s thought up more fiendish water-based exercises...
