      A stone on since the start of all this COVID stuff.

      Haven't done a drop of exercise in months and just ate and drank like f**k. Need to get my finger out and hit the gym hard when they re-open.

      Ran a Turkey Trot 5k, ran my fastest time ever, 21:22. Pretty happy with that. My boys finished 2nd and 4th. Fun start to Thanksgiving.

      Another update.

      Decided enough was enough.

      Woke up 2 Mondays ago and was 13st 13lbs.

      Was 12st when I was properly working out up until the first lock down back in March.

      6.5lbs off in a week and a half. Good start but plenty more work to do. Ideally would like to get back to 12 stone again.

      Ran a half marathon this past Sunday, training wasn’t what I wanted the last couple weeks but I am pretty happy with my time, 1:41:48. Great weather and felt pretty good till about the 10 mile mark where I started to slow a bit.

      The boy ran it in 1:19 but he’s fast like.

      Started a new job a month ago and lost over a stone already. Always been on my feet all day but this is on the constant go. Going to have to eat and drink more before I waste away 😬

      Hope you're all keeping well! I've heard of more people doing the couch to 5K recently... it's amazing what a difference to your wellness a little walk or run can do! also this "forest bathing" has grown in popularity over here, seems that being at one with nature calms the mind and heals the soul! try it :D

      Personally I've been doing RED (Run Everyday) January and today's run was particularly cool as it started snowing!

      A stone off in just under 4 weeks.

      One more to go and its getting tougher. As expected its starting to slow up.

      Just need to stick at it and it'll come.

      Well done lad. Aiming for that myself this month. Last few years I have had a detox/fitness kick in February. Can't do it January as I find that month depressing enough!

      I've heard of more people doing the couch to 5K recently

      Oh it definitely works. I was a complete non runner when I did it about 10 years ago. But more than that I can do no proper running for about a year now and when I start back up I can push a 5k after a handful of runs.  After you've done it once in your life you'll never have to start from the beginning again.  It's a good programme to follow.

      Hasn't been that tough either. Count calories, plenty of water and getting off my hole every day to go for a walk.

      Toughest bit has been no drink. 36 days not that I'm counting 😳

      I'm exactly the same as JD with the January thing. The change in me, mentally, when I wake up on 1st February is mad.

      Well, I've had a very stop start relationship with running over the last 5 years but got more regular since covid hit. Only thing is I'm 19 stone and was thumping around and picking up little injuries so I've now got a running coach who's given me a decent little plan and has me doing a session, with him, once a week. He's not having me running as far as I was doing but more regular miles and I'm understanding the importance of long and slow runs. Only thing with me is that I'm finding it hard to not throw that good booze session in, once a week the night before a rest day. Being at home working since March has made that my 'me thing' and I think it's needed. Comfortable with that but can tend to eat more on the hangover aswell, like yesterday. So, today, the aim is to sort of eat less than normal to allow for yesterday's extra calories. I think once I nail that I'll be comfortable. Totally trusting the system that the coach has got me on and not looking at times anymore. For now, anyway.

      Higgy, great work mate

      4 days and 11 hours and I am counting! 😂

      Well, I've had a very stop start relationship with running over the last 5 years but got more regular since covid hit.

      Me as well. Go through phases of getting into it Spring and Autumn but sack it off winter and summer.

      Kids and covid has made it harder for me personally to get out running in last 12 months. Sure it's different for different people.

      First run back I probably managed two runs of about 5 minutes with a mini walk in the middle and it took my thighs a few days to turn back from rock! I think I could do with losing about 2 and a half stone but I'm sure fitness experts would throw another stone on that!

      I do find that when you've been out and turned yourself into a sweaty mess it does give you a bit of extra willpower to resist eating sh*te the rest of the day.

      The dream is to be able to eat what you want knowing you can get out and run for an hour easy but that balance has always proved out of my reach so far. Fighting against genetics is my excuse.

      If you are going to have a drinking night, do it the night before a longer run....you'll give it up a lot sooner that way ;D

      Those rest days are important....get your sleep and let your body recover. Also, stretching is super important, I'm sure your coach hounds you about that. And don't skimp on running shoes. A good pair will make a world of difference.

      Oh yea...and the more weight you lose, the faster (and farther) you can run with the same effort. It's a nice kick on effect.

      Started the 2 week fasting thing to drop
      Some weight around the stomach and lean up a bit... both my knees have been knackered lately with treatments from the osteopath ... past week I’ve walked 10 miles and feel leaner already, doing another 10 mile walk this weekend...

      Finally feel as though I’m getting my knees back after 5 months..

      Tart cherry juice is supposed to be a natural anti-inflammatory. Also, a buddy of mine had bad knees. He said he got injections of "chicken juice" in his knees and they feel like he was young again. I'm not sure what chicken juice is but he swears by it. He tried Cortisone and that never worked. This stuff basically lubricates the joint.

      Chicken Juice..?  😂

      I’ve been having fresh Tumeric, Ginger, Apple & Black pepper shots every morning with a large teaspoon of Nigella Sativa religiously every morning.. they have completely removed inflammation around my knees & improved my general health & diet...

      Found it....

      For those patients looking for a “natural” treatment for knee pain that does not involve surgery, there is something called a Rooster Comb Injection. These are done in the office, and are derived from an actual rooster comb. The medication that is made from the rooster is called hyaluronic acid.
