Definately, a little warm up and stretching is important, I also take this for my muscles https://www.amazon.com/Natural-Vital.../dp/B00BPUY3W0

Used to get really tight shins during runs, but this helps massively for that.

Regarding tendonitis, don't take ibuprofen and run through it, you don't want to snap that fucker.

Try the stretching excercies Norbs pointed out and even try a small heel insert as well if your shoes don't have enough heel drop.

Yeah that was my main concern, and why I don't like the idea of it.

Can I just point out here that I can't usually be bothered to stretch, just know that I should. That's why I'm getting hampered by so many injuries

The ibuprofen isn't for the pain it's to lessen the inflammation.

Chloe Ting might be a good alternative to Joe Wicks for some of you - she has some great abs workouts online on YouTube:

I've got abs, they're just covered by a thick layer of fat. I can feel them under the fat

Home Gym is set up! Just about enough space to fit it in Bench, Bar, Dumbbells & Kettlebells! A punching bag would be ace lol just need to keep the dust & spiders away and hope it doesn’t rust up!

Blew my calf doing sets of kettlebell carries up the stairs a few weeks back but have been easing it back in. Tuesday was lovely so went down park.

60m Kettlebell walk 2x28K, 120m jog, 120m wall. x10 sets.
320m kettlebell walk 2x16K
320m jog
320m walk
Then all the carrying the KBs to & from the car. Still nursing calf a bit but is OK.

Hopefully bike coming back from shop soon. Determined to stop being a fat cunt. Have gone from 92.5 to 90.5 so far in lockdown. Aim is 85K & 15% bodyfat but to keep the muscle. Kinda like a shit version of Franco Columbu in his time.

It's been weeks and weeks since I've been able to run without pain but I feel confident to try this morning. Any discomfort and it's back to rowing. Here goes...

I'm down to 104.5kg from a start of 112kg a few months ago. I'm aiming to get to 95kg by Christmas.

Well done

I've lost 8kg from around Feb. Roughly 78kg to 70. 6 more and I could fight again I feel so much better not lugging that extra weight around. Not that I was fat before, but it's definitely beneficial to 'streamline'. I hit a golf ball much better, rotating my hips and not having the belly following! Just been hitting the kettlebell routine and skipping 4-6 times a week, also stopped eating so much shit.

Had some blood tests recently due to gout, turns out despite the weight loss my cholesterol is through the roof. My dietitian has put me on an intermittent fasting, gluten free, reduced fat from meat etc etc. diet. I'll probably drop another few kilos with this, possibly with a lack of interest in my new diet, have dreams craving bacon, salami and sausages

Awesome mate! I noticed that walking feels less plodding and more breezy if that makes sense.

I've also been doing the intermittent fasting thing too, mainly because I can't eat before I take my Thyroid medication and not before an hour after taking them.

So some days I don't eat for a 12 to 16 hour stretch. I haven't been dreaming of bad food which I hope is a very good sign!

Another good sign is not needing as much sugar in tea and not craving chocolate or crisps. Everything tastes better and my skin is clearer.

I just joined the gym so I'll start my 5x5 routine and maybe try my hand at kettlebell work (comrade!)

My new bike arrives soon and it feels good knowing I have 8kg or so less to peddle around!

Tonight I'm going to a steakhouse so I'll gorge on flesh and salad!

I’m down to 86.5K frown either 92.5 or 95 depending on what you believe (95 never seemed right to me).

Been cycling lots - into work now I have to go back in and eating really well. Still drink a fair bit but I gave up the endless nights in the pub drinking beer a couple of years ago.

Mrs has me lifting very differently, very technically. I’m 45 now and can’t train on anger and adrenaline alone any more, need to be more measured.

Defo feel - & look- much better for the weight loss. Thought I’d put loads on on holiday but was only 1K.

Trying to do 15k steps a day in November - every day! Company charity of the year is Teenage Caner Trust and a TCT nurse on average will walk 15k steps on a shift so there is a step challenge throughout November. As we are desk based and WFH they suggested we can break into teams to ge the 15k but like an idiot I'm trying to do it solo. I've actually decided to go a little further and though that if 15k a day for 30 days gets me to 450k steps might as well round it off nicely to half a million steps.

Averaging 17,500+ so far this month but the weather has been kind so really not looking forward to when the rain comes and I have to force myself outside for a walk in the cold.

Also not chipping away at the fasten the collar button goal earlier in this thread
