Running 40:00 [2] 7.9 km (5:04 / km)
ahr:176 max:186

Run back home from town, along the lake track. After comparing my heart rate data with other people on Attackpoint, I'm not convinced that having an average heart rate of 176 while "running" at over 5 min/km is overly healthy. Anyone know how this heart rate malarky works? Does it have the positive consequence that I will burn more calories, so I can eat more chocolate and still lose weight?

Snowboarding 1:00:00 [1]

Last night snowboarding for this winter, up at Coronet Peak.

Road Biking 40:00 [2] 16.0 km (2:30 / km)
ahr:142 max:152

Running 20:00 [2] 3.9 km (5:08 / km)

Short run along the lake track to Frankton, but only made it part of the way back home before grinding to a halt.

Snowboarding 1:20:00 [1]

Snowboarding up at Cardrona in the afternoon. Made it over 50,000 vertical metres of riding during the winter season today.

Road Biking 45:00 [2] 18.0 km (2:30 / km)
ahr:156 max:169

Road Biking 45:00 [2] 17.9 km (2:31 / km)
ahr:160 max:172 weight:77.6kg

Day 3 and I've already dropped 0.8 kg from my starting weight, with an average loss of 0.4 kg per day. By linear extrapolation, using the current tangent line, I can accurately predict that I will be down to 35.6 kg by the end of the year, thereby achieving a total points score of 428. Screw the 5km race part, there doesn't seem much point in running if it's going to be this easy to get points. I've done the math. Went for a cycle though, just in case.

Snowboarding 1:15:00 [1]

Fresh snow in the mountains overnight so headed up to Coronet Peak for an afternoon of snowboarding.

Running 25:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:00 / km)
ahr:177 max:191

Evening run from town, around the lake and back home. It took 24:37 to run 5 km and I was screwed by the end - sub 20 minutes seems a long, long way away at the moment.

Road Biking 40:00 [2] 15.3 km (2:37 / km)
ahr:149 max:166 weight:78.4kg

Day one of the Inaugural World Series International Pro-am Celebrity Invitational Attackpoint Biggest Loser Challenge, proudly sponsored by Fergburger. A truly international field has been assembled consisting of Bendover (from the UK, currently living in Spain), Middleditch (from the UK, currently living in NZ) and Seamus (from Scotland, currently living in the UK). The pre-fight weigh-ins have taken place and, following an early betting frenzy at Ladbrokes, the trifecta odds on the three contenders have settled down and now stand at:

8/11, 91.2 kg,   Bendover - the odds-on favourite with racing pedigree
6/4,   78.0 kg,   Seamus - the lightweight Scotsman
e/1,   78.4 kg,   Middleditch - the outsider

One point gained for every 0.1 kg of weight lost and for every second run under 20 minutes for 5km by the end of the year. Let battle commence.
