Bought a Shakti mat, used it 3 times so far. I'm not sure if it works yet but I'm definitely dropping off to sleep towards the end of a 20 minutes stint. It fucking hurts though at the start

As my mountain bike is fucked, I've taken to walking and hiking up a 200m high hill. Quite enjoying that and also beginners calisthenics.

Just been reading up on these after seeing your post.. intrigued! How much did yours cost? Did you get an official Shakti mat or a knock-off one

I got the official one but I reckon the Amazon knock offs are probably as effective. What Shakti say though is that theirs are made in an ethical factory with good work practices and fair salaries. That swayed me

Used it again this morning and whether real or not my back seems to be getting better. Could just be that it's getting better because I've stopped running

Cheers I ordered the official one. If it doesn't work its definitely your fault

any recommendations on a smart watch? wanted for swimming/running/gym. Not pro by any stretch. Just something decent, thinking Polar M2 or Galaxy watch 3.

I have a Garmin vivoactive 3 music.

Supports paypass, stores music, connects to headsets via Bluetooth. Cuts down the crap you need to carry.

And it's also a fairly smart looking watch.

Played my first post-lockdown 5 a side last night.

I say played, loosely. I've never been older, slower, and rarely less fit. Shambles.

I incurred the wrath of our football group's very own Angry Chris. He just about stopped short of calling me a vole c*nt though. The vole c*nt.

I have the Galaxy Watch 2. My interest in a tech/fitness interface is fairly limited. It's bang on for running which is what I mainly use it for fitness wise. It's also waterproof.

I miss my Fitbit Iconic, it displayed exactly the stats that motivated me to exercise and keep moving. Sleep stats were the best in the business too.

I currently wear an Apple Watch SE and while it's an excellent smartwatch, it's not really the motivator I thought it would be compared to the Fitbit.

I have the Garmin Forerunner 735XT. Very good watch. Use it for running, swimming and gym. Prefer it to my Apple Watch 6 for fitness. The latest Garmin Forerunner 745 looks good...
