Get your 2k done..!

I've moved from the rower to the ski. I hate the ski. Absolutely hate it. It's awful.

I do as I'm told in my programme! Thursday is one of my speed sessions and rugby training so anything that made me suffer too much would adversely impact the training that matters the most.

I've never tried the ski but it looks pretty tough, and also with a few more movement options than most cardio. Will give it a go at some point!

Still 80.5

I'm off to the USA next week. That won't help.

86 although that’s up slightly from last week (down to not eating for three days with man flu) it’s  still a downward trend from the week before.

161.4lbs this week.  Been carrying a bug so haven't done as much, only 1 5km run, 3x 3km instead though, still keeping going, more so I don't get out of the habit of not going.

A lot of the time it's just about just continuing to show up. Consistency trumps intensity.

Down to 85kg thia week though it may be statistical noise. Calories down to approx 2800. Still getting stronger though!

Apologies for the delayed posting this week, I was away over the weekend and as you can see I fell off the wagon a bit.
As a social experiment I can confirm that Cornish Gold Cider,  Pasties  and lotted cream are NOT conducive to weight loss

In a first for the group I think everyone that has posted a figure has increased weight since last week.

The good news is the running is going steadily with 190k covered so far this year - and without feeling that I'm pushing myself too hard. Feeling genuinely good to get out there and move.

The bad news is that diet and drinking aren't doing great things for the weight which now stands at 85kg. Up from the start of the year and I can't remotely claim that it's the development of any muscle.

Need to get on top of that.

No gym in a long time as i'm quarantined from the office as part of BCP. 

Being out of a routine really kills me. I occasionally do a pack of cards workout which is:

Hearts - Burpees. Diamonds - Lunges (per leg). Clubs - Press Ups. Spades - Squats.

Ace is 15, King 13. Shuffle the cards and away you go.. 105 of each (210 lunges). Quite tough in the sun!

Sporadic gym work, a couple of times a week.

And down to 78.4kg, please, Shadow.

Blimey, @Niels, that is quite a weight loss.

Is that good or bad?

The weight loss was a bad sign. I walked to boxing training, but did not take part. I went home and ate about six meals yesterday and slept. Starting to feel better!

Various things had me away from the gym this week.  Stress tends to manifest on one of two ways, I either eat nothing or feckin' everything.  This week I ate nothing.  Weight plummeted to 156.6 lbs from 161.4.  Nearly 3% body weight gone in a week.  Not good.  Scary.

Did a slower 33 minute 5K this morning but feeling it.  Need to get some fuel in.

Thanks Bob. I am glad you asked. It's low for me. I changed diet as I had painful kidney stones and I think this is the cause of the weight loss.

I was on the upper border for BMI so it's actually more healthy for me.

I was the same weight today (70.76 please Shadow) so I've maintained it. I am still eating less though.
