      Will have a look for that.....even a download as I’ll have plenty time to read in Tenerife from next week into August.

      Good luck to you and the boy......I think it’s good to have goals as long as they don’t convert into pressure....

      Agree, one thing I’ve always tried to do is give him room to decide this is what he wants to do. I’ve never pushed him to make this his “thing” although I do tell him if he is going to commit to it, to commit all the way which he’s done. Still doesn’t keep me from getting pretty darn proud of what he’s been able to accomplish but I’m sure as a father you get that.

      Of course, that’s all you can do.

      I probably over-stepped that a bit when I coached the wee guy. It was very political and I let it irk me me that he’d let himself get p#ssed off at the cliques etc

      He’s not quick but was a force of nature and I pushed him too hard at times and played a part in him chucking it for a while.

      Live and learn.....even as parents we don’t know all the right answers :)

      The great thing about a sport like Cross Country or Track is that for the most part there aren't too many of those cliques going on. You'll get out what you put in that's for sure.

      Very true.

      It’s one of the things I marvel at in great “man managers” - that they know the buttons to press for the individuals and also how to amplify the group gynamic.

      I’ve not seen anybody better at that than Jürgen in my time watching the reds.

      Did my morning exercises this morning, in Cyprus. I usually leave a puddle, today I left a pool. I'm only 7lb off the halfway point of my weight loss goal, getting fitter is a bonus. Did an improvised workout, in the pool, dropped 2 clothe sizes, I would say 3 but, whilst I can get them on, moving, sitting, any movement is severely restricted.

      It's called cupping... Blood letting..

      I've had it done on top of my head & back of head, back & lower & legs..

      Works wonders..

      I've actually had it where the cups are removed & the the cup area cut with a scalp into small little slashes then re cupped to remove the dark coagulated blood..

      It’s the straps of a swimming costume mate.

      Traditionally you’d see it only on female aquatic athletes but in this day and age....... :confused-smiley-013:

      It's helps sis recovery, for example I suffered from lower back pain, was recommend cupping by friends whilst visiting Saudi, went to the hospital & had the treatment done, never had a lower back pain issue again, likewise shin splits, had cupping done on the muscle around the shin & no complaints ...

      So to answer your questions, it helps in recovery..muscle,bone,blood flow, head aches etc etc..

      About 4 months, but I've been keeping up with heavy lifting at home due to home renovations..

      Just the running will take time to get use to, been chugging away & not long ago bought another box of 20...

      Last couple of weeks has been just to hot to hit the roads for a run.

      Should consider early morning but I’m just not a early morning exerciser.

      5k this morning because I was pushed for time and ran at 4’31 /km including a few hills.

      Training been really intense and to add pre-season work with the Sunday team. Shuttle sprints and hill sprints on Sunday and a spin class on Tuesday.

      Just finished a 15 minute Ab Hiit that I probably wasn't quite ready for. I'll be alright, as long as I don't have to stand up and walk anywhere.

      Going back to full keto diet again after a few months of eating whatever (which was fantastic :D)

      40mins of kettlebells today too, trying to sap the rest of the sugar and carbs out of me asap and get to ketosis so workouts will be easier than today.

      Maybe a little unrelated. Tend to do hill and intervals on my spin bike, so they tend to be more endurance than anything.

      Thinking of doing a 500-mile challenge on my bike which equates to 16 odd miles per day for 30 days. Firstly, if I do I'd obviously want to fundraise but the question is what? My dad had testicular cancer and found it early enough to have it all removed thankfully, so it's probably something I'd want to fundraise for. However, my issue is do I do it for the likes of Cancer Research for example who do get a lot of fundraising as it is, or the likes of Macmillan or a much smaller charity?

      It's down to you mate, when doing charity things I'll either do something a family member or friend has gone through or is going through, or a local charity which helps out people close to home. Either way the money goes to a great cause.

      There's also no reason why all the money needs to go to one place, you could split it between 2 or more.

      I reckon cancer charity just because I've obviously had someone go through it and been around others that have had experience with it much worse than anything I'd have experienced with my dad. But just conscious of how much CR are funded as is, but I do hear a lot about how much Macmillan do so I'm a little torn.

      Out to do 16 miles on the bike now and see how long it takes. Need to see how manageable it will be, idea is to test myself and raise some money at the same time as improving overall fitness. Win win.

      So got 16miles done in 58 mins.

      2 miles at 50-60% resistance with every 3rd mile at a low easy gear. Mile 11 on absolutely killed! Had to stop at 10 to refill water too, so I know to bring two water bottles into the garage with me next time! :laugh:

      Not been doing much at all in the way of cardio in the last couple of weeks but out a run this morning. Was a real effort getting outta bed and motivated but 5k in 22:25 which is not bad considering.
