3 days of gym, eating healthily (well more healthily) and drinking loads of water in a row, which in the last few months/years has definitely been the exception rather than the norm. I can honestly say that this is the best I have felt in ages. I have more energy, more focus and am more productive.
It's probably been around 3 or 4 year's since I was what I could call pretty fit. A good friend and colleague of mine and I used to destroy ourselves 6 days a week on "The Rock" all body weights workout, followed by a super circuit and then some cardio. Not Ironman material I know, but we were happy.
If I look back on those times now and at the type of hours we were putting in at work (which often still happens now, but not to quite the same extremes, i.e 90+ hour weeks), it really was only possible because of 2 things, stubborness and our bodies and minds being able to handle a large and sustained workload. Even now, I really believe that one of the main reasons we are able to maintain long periods of high pressure work is because of the strength and endurance we built way back then.
emediaIT has grown in leaps and bounds in the last 2 years and that growth looks set to continue in 2009 so the need for me to "be the best I can be" is greater than ever. I've given myself 3 months to get back to our previous levels of fitness, but it's going to be a long (and probably painful) road back...
