Re: The athletics/running thread

Day 3 in the books And here too. Along with a rather slow 4 mile run. Squats and abs was easy today. I took a look at day 30 though! :shock: Focusing on getting to day nine for now :lol: How long should we stay down in the squat position do you reckon? I'm fine doing them but not really in a unifor...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Done mine. Commandeered the mat after helping my daughter practice her backwards walkover. Perhaps backwards walkovers could be next months ‘challenge’? 🤔 Backwards walkovers? That’s another one you’re gonna have to talk me through. Done mine and a 3.5 mile run. https://tenor.com/view/walkover-back...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Think they realised they f*ck up your back so recommend crunches instead now. I did the squats today at the end of a 15 mins out and then 14.15 back (I think there's a name for that but.. ) would've been just over 6k. Involved 2 laps around the Emirates. Very quiet. Needing a dump? :conf: I just kn...

Done. Nice easy start to the month...……

Quads are tight after yesterday's 14 miler and am currently trying to stave off plantar fasciitis in my left heel. Murder when I stand up but eases when I move round for a bit. So I guess I'll keep moving...……

Some people make me sick. 😉

Re: The athletics/running thread

Glad to be back running again but my legs are so weak. Tried a longer run on Sunday and had to pack it in after half an hour, calves just can't hack it atm! Probabl shouldn't have gone back to five days a week after five weeks off, idiot. Last year I was enjoying swimming and this January acquired ...

Re: The athletics/running thread

5 slow miles tonight for me, friend and the (bigger) dog. Happy with that. Time was shocking but want to get the distances in til 10km doesn’t seem like a one off miracle once or twice a year. That’s about 20k all in for February BP. I need to get out more then once a week! I think you secretly lov...

Re: The athletics/running thread

How's everyone getting on? A bit shit, thanks. Really struggling with initial lung capacity at the moment and I'm not entirely sure why. Absolutely no problem with recovery times and generally OK-ish after 2K or so, but getting there's a fecking nightmare just now and I don't know why. And no, it's...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Weren't you living in a desert? Bit of a weather change then. Which do you prefer? Yes, I was in a deserty bit of Dubai for 6 years. I'd say 90% of the time I prefer the weather here on Skye. I'm lucky that we have our own micro climate in my village which means we generally don't get as cold. We'r...
