Let's get Dumb

Re: Health and Fitness

2 workouts a week + diet (which isn't as bad as I thought, portion control and knowing when to stop so I can still eat all kinds of stuff, also I cook more which means I eat better and am more satisfied) = I get to hang out with the hot soccer moms.

Workouts make me sore but was really grateful when we had to move flat, definitely felt the difference there.

edit: sorry to hear about ribs Dumbot.

Re: Health and Fitness

Getting used to work-out 2-3 times a week. usually 1,5  / 2 hours.
Hope to keep this up for a long time.

Re: Health and Fitness

hopefully now the weather is getting better I will get back out onto the track. Been too bloody slack.

Re: Health and Fitness

fuck, 6 days to go and i think i might have pulled a hamstring (or come very close to it at least). was trying to run my first 10 and had to stop after 7 - stopped immediately when i felt the pain thinking that wise. ran a 9k on friday and had no problems at all.

i'm just going to run whatever i can on sunday and will stop and walk if i feel any pain. could power through it i reckon, but i don't want to risk injuring myself as my primary goal is to reach my target weight and i'm not gonna risk being out of the game for a few weeks...

Re: Health and Fitness

Shit dude, thats really bad to hear!! definitely wise to stop straight away! Don't risk injusring yourself either man, dont worry about your time or anything. Just take it really easy.

I done a nice 5 miles last night. Feelin fit after it, couldve kept going but Im going to start bringing down my milage now, 4 miles tonight, 3 tomorrow, 2 thursday, friday and saturday rest, then race day...

Been cycling a wee bit now with this new cycle hire scheme in london, its pretty good!

what a nightmare! definately rest over the next few days and maybe a light run a couple of days before. you will not lose your fitness in a week, just wouldnt be able to run your best speed, so either way you are doing the right thing by taking it easy. you dont need to run the full whack before race day, so youll be sound for every pound. good luck man, be sure and cruise wink

right im gonna try this. i do around a 100 push ups but not continuously, sounds like a challenge  hmm

Re: Health and Fitness

well, seems my fears were a wee bit premature - i ran 10k in 53 mins tonight. could feel some nipping in the leg but nothing major, looks like 2 days rest was all it needed. gonna obviously rest the full 2 days now. if it flares up on sunday i'll just do what i can then walk.

it was quite hot up here for this run too, which i've not been used to, generally i've been running late at night. i've also managed to do this while maintaining a 4/5 a day smoking habit too. want to fucking quit that so badly but am having such a hard time kicking it this time for some reason.

good luck for sunday meschi! smile

Re: Health and Fitness

Good luck for sunday dudes  big_smile

Re: Health and Fitness

You too Jacderida, good to hear you're not out of the game...
thanks kara... Ill be running like the wind!

Re: Health and Fitness

sorry didn't read the last few pages, are you guys training for a marathon or somethin? good luck!

i've been running everyday about 3.5 miles and started with 5 miles today.. wasn't too bad but the heat here is just killing me

and thanx for the push up and sit up websites. i will have to try those out!  smile

Re: Health and Fitness

in my dreams mate - it's a 10k smile

Re: Health and Fitness

hey, a 10k isn't easy and a good start towards a marathon especially if you're doing it under an hour and with a smokin habit!
have fun and good luck to all with the 10k.

Re: Health and Fitness

Im feelin good. been carbo loading with some serious pasta business all day, Ive got my post run mars bar ready and my bag packed... heavy lookin forwra to it!

Re: Health and Fitness

done it in 52:23, pretty happy with that. coulda pushed a wee bit harder at the end, but didn't want to risk pulling that hamstring smile.

the route was quite a bit more hilly than the one that i normally do and it was also pretty hot for the start of it.

anyway, i'm gonna have a few beers tonight, even if i need to go into work rough tomorrow big_smile

Re: Health and Fitness

Nice one dude. I managed to do mine in 52:30 which s way better than i was expecting. Just had a wee celebratory pint with my mate. Now stocking up on goodness again. Congrats jacderida smile

Re: Health and Fitness

good going mate! half marathon next time then? big_smile

Re: Health and Fitness

Yes!
