Sign me up!

I'm already doing the Week 5 stuff and would like to do more. This, in addition to daily swims and 6 days a week grappling.

I will try the 5K+ stamina. I am trying to get myself up to 10K for an event this fall, but I am having trouble cracking 8.5K. That plus a recent ankle injury is discouraging me a bit. I currently use the Nike running app to track my speed and distance, but I suppose something a bit more structured wouldn't hurt.

With all this, it probably doesn't help that I'm on a baking whim at present and I'm making some kind of bread or pastry every other day (keeps me entertained and the amount I spend on ingredients is less than what I'd spend on pastries for the office anyway.)


That sounds like quite an impressive plan. The baking whim also sounds awesome. I have just got into making rainbow cupcakes, but had to give them all away to other people and start eating healthily

I think they grow on you. How are you going to stick to the regime without them?

Also, does this mean you've completed your first run? Awesome

1. They're old pictures
2. I got fat since then
3. I don't post pictures of myself where I look fat anyway so you have an unrealistic ideal
4. We probably have different standards for what's acceptable flab-wise
5. There's not really anything you can do about it anyway

It starts off for a beginner level of fitness so that shouldn't put you off. You could always do it on your bike instead though, to give yourself more structure?

Then why don't you take more recent pictures so I can get a more accurate idea? You don't even have to post them, just PM them to me. They don't even have to be nude pictures if you don't want to.

I'm in.

Finally some structure to my cardio instead of hopping on the treadmill whenever and plainly running a mile.

Gonna try the first one now.


Edit: Made it 1.7 miles after 20 minutes fairly easily. The walking in between helps keep proper breathing (instead of hyperventilating). Decided to run a little longer after it (to make it over 2 miles total).

Feels good.

I recently started this regime, but then had to take a break due to moving back for school. I'm in.

I'm not going to use the podcast though, I have a stopwatch on my iPhone.

I'd totally do this if I wasn't already doing a more intense routine. Although, I would have found this useful a couple of years ago.

I'll sign up, but instead of this workout, I'll double the distances I'm already doing or at least do my exercises twice a day. So per week that would be 2 days of 4km sprint training, 3 days 6km run, and 1 day 20km run.

To our good health.

Do I have to download the podcast to do this right? Because it really sounds superfluous and annoying.

Sweet!

If you are finding it too easy, you could always skip a week or two and start at a point that you think matches your current level of fitness...

Awesome!

I do recommend using the podcasts though, they're pretty funny and keep you motivated.

There is actually something called 5k+ for people who are already pretty good at running, but I'm definitely not yet so I can't vouch for how good it is

Do it! The podcast is funny. The first time I listened to it I laughed at how silly I felt, I had to keep reminding myself that nobody else could hear it. But actually, once you get over the motivational music and start listening to the verbal instructions, it is really really useful. I know for sure I couldn't run for very long without someone motivating me every few minutes. Laura the podcast woman is still annoying sometimes though - why ask "are you ready for another run?" when the answer is going to be "no, I'm dying!"

Why don't you download the first podcast and see how you get on with it? I seem to remember you're not from the UK - this is something from the NHS that anyone around the world can have for free, don't take that for granted

Hmm...eh, what the hell, I'll see how big they are and if I can fit them on my computer. Sign me up for this - I may not have time soon with school starting back up, but I've been looking for an excuse to get healthy, and this is as good as any.

Ah, sorry - I was doing a big mega-post and edited my reply to your post in last of all

Yeah I do recommend the podcasts. A lot of US commenters on the NHS website say they find Podcast lady Laura's British accent quite amusing when they run. I suggest you can give it a try, but the timings of each run are in the OP if you can't get on with the podcasts

I made brioche and I'm probably going to give most of it away. It came out perfect and I ate two slices, looked at my gut, got annoyed and then got through about 15 minutes on the machine before this heat got to me and tired me out. I shouldn't be sweating like crazy before the workout. Sitting in front of the oven earlier probably didn't help. Managed to rack up a constant paced 2.5 km and only 3 fast periods due to being so exhausted. Should be okay doing it Monday, provided that burn I'm getting in one of my shoulder's is temporary.


I'm making croissants from scratch tomorrow. That won't help matters, lol.

Oh yeah, what's all this about a heatwave? Is it really hot in London? It's just been 'normal' here in Bristol today, my car thermometer said 21, but everyone's been on about how hot it is.

Also, that's pretty good considering how hot it allegedly is around your parts. Exercising when it's really hot is the worst


Also, post pics of the croissants!
