If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. – Bruce Lee

4032 points. (Click here and scroll down for the full results.)

Other than a 100m PB the rest of the 9 events went quite badly. To be fair I’ve never expected much from this decathlon, I had a week off due to my parents coming over for my graduation and originally planned not to do this dec. Thought the experience would be useful so I decided to go for it anyway.

Whilst my hamstring injury has recovered, I’ve discovered just how much fitness I’ve actually lost. Even though the run timings for the 400m and 1500m were extremely disappointing, I did try to push it and it sucks to hurt and still run such a slow time.

But I guess I’m still proud that I completed yet another decathlon. This would be my 3rd one successfully completed. It has been quite a disruptive week (not to mention I wrecked my car last week as well), but hey sometimes you just got to go with the flow and look ahead. I must say overall I still had an amazing weekend thanks partly to the awesome weather. I got to see some amazing scenery, ate amazing food, met amazing people and I think largely that’s why I love to continue to do what I’m doing.

My 100m timings coming down so I’m still gunning for a sub-12s run this season. Got the first 3/4 of the race figured out, just that final 1/4 to find that 0.2s from. For the other events I just got to remind my body the technical aspects and get back into shape.

As much as I wanted to be around 5000 points by now and trying for 6000, it is how it is.

Time to lose a few pounds, get lean and get going.

Manchester in 4 weeks.

I’ll be ready.

Just keep going, you got nothing to lose anyway.
