      Barsteward.

      Felt something go in / around my left hammy tonight after about 3km. Big setback.

      Got it iced and will see how it is in the morning.

      Man I get so unbearable when I’m inactive so family all on alert!

      Ran 9.25 miles this morning in 1:45:52. Think I am ready to run the half marathon in 3 weeks.

      Something wrong in my glutes, top of my left leg. Short runs are fine, but the third run in the couch to 5k is a 20 minute one I've just not been able to finish it. Stretches today, will do some more this evening. With my weight, I was really worried about my knees and ankles, they've been fine, this just feels like I've pulled something, not even sure when.

      Had a game earlier and think I’ve overstretched and maybe hyperextended my knee. Hurt at first then ran through it but now I’m starting to feel it quite a bit. Unfortunate as I was planning a run tomorrow morning, oh well.

      Certainly didn’t come off worst mind you, one of our lads landed horribly and broke his collarbone. Had to get carted away in an ambulance and didn’t know where he was.

      That’s a good pace man. Will make for a nice half marathon time. Have fun!

      Another circuit done struggled a bit for consistency since Tenerife in July and back on the 17th.......

      Nice to get back into a routine before a week of “re-tox”

      Running at least 5k three times a week. Working out 5 days a week. Now a clear 225lbs (102kg) lighter than my heaviest. Another 70lb, give or take, to go. Aiming for 200lb as my target weight.

      Been working on strength building the last couple of weeks, really struggle with pushups.

      Noticed a huge improvement in my resting heart rate as well, from 85-95 per minute to between 62-68 per minute.

      That is absolutely sensational. Well in Rodders. How are you feeling mentally as well as physically in comparison?

      Well done mate - bet it feels good though.

      If you’re anything like me you’ll just keep whittling away 10-15 secs off that now you’ve broken the barrier.

      Deffo feels good mate i suppose it’s one way of keeping motivated.

      Don’t know about you mate no matter how good your running music is it can get a bit monotonous without something to aim for.

      So it’s a sub 1.50 half marathon in the summer for me.

      Agreed - I’m into podcasts now and rarely listen to music. The Anfield Wrap and the Echo’s “Blood Red” are good plus I listen to boxing ones and a bundle of True Crime ones. Bit more engaging and passes time better.

      Having said that though I’ve only been running indoors in 2018 and doing a lot of interval training and weights for a change.

      Might get back to outdoors in new year.

      I was feeling great, it's kind of come to a halt the last fortnight, but it is all work induced, I work in the parcel business and....this time of year.

      I knew this was coming but you can never fully prep for the hours you end up putting in, to get the job done.

      Really struggled to "find" the time to do anything since November/December. The job I quit in January, for me, was the reason. Could never seem to get the time to do it, always working, even when on days off. Leads to anxiety for me and I end up just wanting to find a way to chill out and end up comfort eating too.

      My heaviest has been 17st (108kg) in 2017. I got down to 14st 10 (93.5kg) by Dec 2017/Jan 2018 which is my lightest since I was about 14/15.

      I'm currently sitting at 15st 10 (100kg) and aiming to get back down to 14st level.

      Need to stop letting anxiety get the best of me and just get to it because I feel fantastic after working out no matter what it is. The issue since November has been motivation. I start my new job soon and have had time to clear my head.

      Have done 30 minutes on my spin bike the last two days (11miles in 30 mins) consisting of 2 mile warmup, 1 mile 8/10 resistance, 1 mile 2/10 resistance until I reach 30 minutes. Ends up being 4.5 easy miles and 4.5 hard miles. I take a small breather and then do a kettlebell workout as I want to try tone my arms/shoulders/chest. So just under an hour of working out and according to my polar HR monitor (chest) I'm burning 650-750 calories between the two.

      I feel great, a little sore, but great nonetheless. Now for me, is to just get my diet back in order as that's the main reason for my weight gain.

      Start of another journey, and I'm excited.

      Brilliant - go for it mate.

      I really relate to that as it’s a massive factor in my general equilibrium too.

      Struggling at the moment as been toiling with a recurring virus & fatigue for couple weeks now (off work). I’m really, really fed up and frustrated but I know it’ll pass.......eventually.

      You can and you WILL get there mate ✊

      Cheers mate.

      Hoping you feel better soon. Might be the same one I’ve had, I’m at latter end. Chest is cleared just still nasal and ears are at me, but much better than I was.

      I’ve been on a 4 day stag to Amsterdam  and 3 day wedding in St Andrews with an open bar. I’ve literally drank over 100 pints this week and put on 1 stone in 7 days....


      WORTH IT!

      Will be doing some serious cardio to drop back down. Will keep you posted.
