my lad is mid 20s and hes fucked himself right up

only did it to raise some money for charity

5k a day for a month in pretty standard trainers

 

a few have looked at him inc some private attempts

think hes doing the exercise route as he had one minor surgery and another bash - i think - at acupuncture

do you have an exercise programme to share?

Have you been to Tobutt’s? I think Doug would ‘get it’

cheers

Mine are both runners as you know. 

They always talk about warming up and cooling down properly, don’t over-train, watch the miles & rest is absolutely crucial. 

Got to wear the right footwear too.

If you want anything more specific then PM me & I’ll ask them.

Tore the cartilage in my knee 

Get shin splints 

So decide to do cycling

But know I prefer running 

So manage it for a bit

Then the cycle repeats itself 

Which cycle? The one you don’t like riding or the one which takes you back to running? 🤣

😃

I'll do the cycling for a bit then get bored 

So go back to running, then my body says no 

So back to the bike 

So there are two cycles involved, just in different contexts 😃

Here we go again 

Last night was my 12th night drinking in a row so well ready for a break 

No ambition for a dry January this year but happy to see where a few days off takes me 

Will ease back into exercise next few days and start a proper regime next Monday 

Not weighed myself for a while but no doubt it will be around the customary new year 200lb 

My aim is to get down to 182lbs having got below 190 last year

I've not had a drink since November now. I wasn't a big drinker by any means - but it's had a profound affect on my mental health (in a good way). 

I'm not saying I'll never drink again but I'm not missing it ATM. And I've lost half a stone without trying.....

Basically alcohol is now haram. Alluaha Akbar! 😁

i start the slog tomorrow. i really want a sub 5 hour marathon and that is only happening when the chippy tits get smaller.

Been a bad year for the diabetes so i need to get that back in line. 

currently typing with a bad back so who knows how long it will take to get back in working order.

Could you not just type with your fingers instead? You’re bound to have a bad back if you’re slapping it against a keyboard all day

Jesus invented that so it must be good for you.

Starts next week for me. Got a function on at the weekend.

Time to get stripped again. Been out of control since late October. Drank nearly every weekend, pies and bacon all week.

4 abs by first week in March.
