5K run on a treadmill

827 posts in this topic

Just over two stone lost for this year.

 

Besides dog walking and such - in true Fast Show style - this month I are be mostly doing 10 minutes on the cross trainer every day. I'm better now after missing a few days here and there early on. I've always thought my cross trainer is in km and km/h and I'm managing between 1.5km and 2km in 10 minutes. Even when I phone it in I can average 1.7-1.8km now. I'm doing this for April. I might do 15 minutes of weights in May.

Fantastic, I bet you feel miles better,??

keep up the good work.

Enjoy it, enjoy the rests.

Ive lost about the same. Over 300 miles cycled.

Nice one, this thread is really refreshing, I've had a long day and didn't fancy the gym tonight..... I now look forward to spin and yoga.

Some fantastic achievements going on.

Did an 11 miler today, mainly uphill and into a strong wind. Hurt like hell, I just hope it's worth it. I have the North Lincs Half on 4th May. May the 4th be with me!!

100% worth it! come race day you'll be flying! great effort and distance stored in the legs.

Best of luck for May

Use it as motivation, not shame.

Doing something is better than nothing!!

It's great when the speed element forms part if your run, keep it up

 

30 minutes (3x 5min, followed by 15 min) on the rowing machine today.  Finished feeling great, but the first two five minutes sets are hard to push through.

 

It is a five day holiday over Easter here and I think I managed to lose the best part of an inch of the waist in that time (weights, runs, yoga and press ups).

Well deserved I guess.

5 miles this morning, hard work running at 5:45 in the morning, don't really like it, never feels nice / right

Gym core work and HIT training tonight, legs heavy and body tired, but feeling fitter all the time. Effort equals rewards

Badminton tonight. I've been a member of the club for just over a year playing a couple of hours a week, still a long way off the standard of the match playing guys but really enjoy it. We've got players from 20 - 80 so a real mix of youth and experience.

 

Last summer we had some coaching from this tiny Chinese guy who lives locally and has played in a lot of big tournaments. What he could do with a shuttlecock defies belief, the speed he can send it back at with apparently minimal effort is astounding. Hopefully he will be back this summer for more coaching as I learnt a hell of a lot from him.

Some great efforts being shared on this thread, hope others join in and become motivated by it.

Fantastic to hear so many different activities taking place.

Spin tonight for me, going to work in the higher heart rate bracket of 85% and above for as long as possible.

Last Thursday I achieved 100% of max heart! boy did it hurt! normally struggle to get above 95% but I thought I'd go for it. A fantastic workout and totally made up, didn't think it was possible.

last Saturdays park run time was 24.30 previous seven park run times were around 26.10 . My pb is 23.20 getting back up to speed , just need to lose a few kilos and hope the good weather stays for a while longer . You get lots of information when the results get posted , - what position / age group position/ what % you are running at for your age , you can also see what other runners are doing over the weeks , great way to spend an hour on a Saturday Morning

Possibly applicable to this thread, I have resurrected 100 press-ups from the past.  It is useful for days when not running and in terms of fat loss, a bit of extra muscle is very helpful.

Over 13 miles done this morning to run new inner tubes and brakes in. Failed on the A53 out of Newcastle under lyme towards Shrewsbury. Had to get off and push for about quarter mile as the road rose by about 150 feet. Nice run down though towards the M6 crossing as the gps clocked speed at 37.9mph.

Great effort, I know that road from my days living in Crewe.

5.5 miles this morning hill training for me, chuffed as well only 4 secs off my 1/2 Marathon race pace.

Keep up the hard work, I bet come end of year you'll be up that hill no problem

Had another go this morning but cut out.the steep section at the start. Up the a34 into Newcastle, loop the ring road and back down the a34 before cutting down onto.the a53. 16.5 miles this morning and suffering a big post ride cramp.

Best thing is my body will be running a calorie deficit till tea time at least.

So went to see a specialist yesterday and it turns out that I have synovial chondromatosis in my elbow and I will need to go under the knife to get it sorted. Bit disappointed as over the last couple of month I have really got back into going to the gym several times a week along with playing badminton and this is going to keep me away from that for a while until my arm recovers.

Synovial chondromatosis (also called synovial osteochondromatosis) is a rare, benign condition that involves the synovium, which is the thin layer of tissue that lines joints.
 
Although this type of tumor does not spread to other parts of the body, it can cause severe damage to the joint and lead to osteoarthritis. Early treatment is important to relieve painful symptoms and prevent further damage.

Gutted for you, at least you're going to get it sorted.

Cheers mate. Got to wait to have a CT scan done to see how many tumours there are then the surgeon will figure out whether he can go in keyhole or needs to make a bigger incision to get them all out which will obviously take a bit longer to heal up.

 

When he checked I've lost a total of 40 degrees of movement in my arm which will be nice to have back and may even help with the badminton. Until then I will be using it as an excuse for missed shots.

Feeling happy today.

After three sessions of hill training in the last few weeks, I decided to join he wife on a slow run, she was doing a 10 miler at 9 minute miles pace, i was feeling great and continued on to complete 13.1 miles and finished in 1:56.40. Including a bloody big hill at 11/12 mile mark may I add !!

So I've now done the distance and ready for the Liverpool 1/2 Marathon in three weeks.

Hope your training is going well peeps, remember it's to be enjoyed and not a chore !,

Feeling really fed up.

Replaced inner tube on front puncture. Replaced both OEM tubes for continental tubes. Slow puncture on one so replaced with spare, now punctured that one. Repaired and now repair has failed. In between this i bought a set of Schwalbe tubes but the valves were a little too short so that was when i bought the continental tubes.

OEM tubes lasted 400 miles. Now have gone through 3 tubes in 100.

I need to step up from 5K to 10K. Any advice that can help you make the transition? Or is it just a case of 'run more and longer'? :)
