Another trip to the gym this evening. A session on the treadmill and cross trainer then some fun with kettle balls.

 

Can't move my arms now and I suspect by the morning my legs will also be refusing to cooperate......

I'm aiming to run 1000km this year, tracking it using Garmin. I'm on 265km so far.

10K race on Sunday and I'm now running home from work each Wednesday, which involves a 10.5 mile run with the last 2.5 uphill. It's a fine workout...

Garmin is great for tracking, 1000km some distance, nice one.

I did 100 mile in January, furthest I've ever run, feb had a few niggles and did 30 miles, this month on 10 in March



I'm glad you posted your target as it'll push me, it's my addictive personality


Good luck with your 10k, if you don't mind will you post your monthly distance??

Best wishes

Paul

9 of the worst miles ever, just didn't feel right, however I just kept running

Somedays are hard, some are easy and then Some days you just think "what the hell"

Glad it's over !!!

Just got result from this mornings parkrun. It's a new PB of 28.28. I am pretty pleased with it but this now means I have to get past the 28 minute mark! :)

Had a fair few fallow weeks.  Need to kickstart again.  Gym, crossfit, swimming and parkrun might be added to the armoury!  So far I'm just done walking (14 miles + is no longer too far but a good day).


With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Weekend of rest and a renewed energy this morning. Absolutely freezing though, thermal tights and fleece hat had been put away for the summer but made a reappearance today!

Next weekend is looking promising; there's a nice, open block of time to really nail down a solid starting point.

 

It's then or never in my eyes!

My pb is 28:22 in the Perth Parkrun from a few weeks ago, with an age grade of 54.17%. The age grade is a comparison method where they compare your time (or, rather, your speed) with the world best for 5k for your gender and age range. I do a bit of running for health and general fitness, so I was a bit peeved when my wife just turned up with no running training (although she attends keep fit classes) and got a higher age grade - the challenge has been thrown down!

My brother has also started doing the Perth Parkrun, but the one in Western Australia. It's is great that you can regularly compete and compare with someone on the other side of the world.

Plenty of motivation for you to get better, good luck and I enjoyed your post, thanks again.

So glad I brought the page back to life, running isn't for all, however we all have choices to make on what best suits our lifestyles.

Heard a grinding sound from rear brakes last night. Checked them and have worn through pad and grinding was coming from steel edge of shoe. Also found back tyre is bald. Have changed front pads onto back and will swap front tyre for back to get another month out of them. New brake shoes, pads and tyres is going to cost.

On a lighter note ive found white walled tyres. This is awesome!

This is a great and inspirational thread that somehow I hadn't seen until this week.

I love my running. I'm age 55 and went for a 'age 50 check up' and essentially was told to buck up, and since then try to do a run or gym every day but it ends up being about 5 out of 7 most weeks. If I run every day I 'jar' my joints so restrict it to one run a week, through fields and tracks- 2 miles- which I time, and the rest is cross trainer, cycle etc.

The point of this is that I was told by my cardiologist, that from the age of 50 your muscles start diminishing, and in about 20 seconds told me a few things that made me think.

 

1) The muscle that you should exercise every day is the one you cannot see-- your heart . Everything else will improve around that.

2) You should do a 'full body exercise' such as running, swimming. x trainer etc.

3) You should do 30 minutes every day, 10 minutes getting up to a sweat, then maintain it for 20 mins. (Once you get quite fit, you have to work quite hard to get there)

4) Health for over 50's is 20% what you do, and 80% what you eat.

 

I would add that the biggest obstacle to all this is getting injured. Avoid it!!

 

 

Keep it going!!
