Also, post pics of the croissants!


my temperature wand thing I had handy measured 32c room temp. outside was 30c and now it's dark it's saying 23c. I didn't really feel it until I started my situps, I had to actually rest after them for once because of all the sweat.

will do with pics of the croissants tommorrow (provided I don't screw up and throw them away out of shame)

here's brioche though!: (100g butter to 250 flour )








soft crumb, light texture, sweet taste, flaky crust. happy with this even though I forgot to slash the top

I've been planning to start running for the past 3 years or something.

My best attempt was this Summer. I went for 4 runs.

Yay! I love running. Is it cheating if I already run 5k multiple times in a week as part of my current routine? If not ill join. Maybe ill just up the intensity accordingly.


Ill be starting up Insanity workouts next week, so at the very least I can keep a progress log with you guys in that way..its fitness all the same

I think I'll do whatever I've been doing until now:

2-4 times a week:

10 minute warm up (2 min walking, 6 running, 2 walking)

The do this:
5x5 squats
5x5 bench press
5x5 babrell rows
or this:
5x5 squats
5x5 overhead press
1x5 deadlifts
(alternating between the two of these)

So basically, I'm just dilligently following the stronglifts.com thingy...

As well as the occasional 5 km walk once or twice a week.

I did this and it worked okay, but stretch it out if you need to. Don't be afraid to repeat some days if it doesn't work out. It's not really a race.

That looks amazing!

I was making some pizza yesterday and the yeast packet I used had a recipe on there for chocolate orange bread, made using cocoa, orange zest, orange juice and chocolate chips. I'm going to have to make this, I think

I'm not quite sure how I'm going to knead the bread without getting chocolate chips embedded in the heel of my palms, but that's the price you pay for awesome bread.

4 runs is a great start! Are you in for the couch to 5k thing?

I know, right? Did you complete the run?

I'm doing W2R1 today, dreading it.

Awesome! I'll add your name. You could check out the 5k+ as well, which is for people who can already run 5k.

I have heard of this Insanity thing and I'm intrigued. You'll have to keep us posted with how it goes!

Sounds like a great workout! If you want to add soem cardio, I recommend the podcasts

Good advice! Have you already completed this? Have you managed to keep up the same levels of fitness? That's my aim for when I complete it.

lol, I wore normal trainers for my run on Friday thinking the whole shin splints thing wouldn't happen to me and by Sunday I could hardly walk. Serves me right

Have to wait till payday now and get some proper running shoes.

After cardio, core body strength is my worst nightmare so might do online yoga classes for something to do in the meantime.

Yeah if you're unused to running, and especially if you're going to run on asphalt I recommend getting good shoes.

I still haven't started this thing, but I'm wanting to start playing volleyball.

About to go for the first walk/run thing. The dates on these podcasts are weird. Week 1 has December 13, 2010 below it, but Week 2 has December 12, 2010.

WHAT KIND OF TIMELORD RECORDED THEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE?

Edit: And I'm back. Few things I noticed:

1) I've lived here for almost all my life, and still after one of the runs I looked up and thought "where the hell am I?!"

2) Loads of cats round here. Must have passed 10 or 12 of them, all sitting on front lawns watching me go past, all of them with an expression that quite clearly said "prick."

3) I'm really pleased with how it went. I'm more sweat than man, but I don't feel overly exhausted. I was expecting to get halfway through the thing, and collapse in a heap.

I did the same thing! After 4 runs I am now going to have to get some proper running shoes. They have some ladies running shoes for £9.99 in sports direct - think I'm going to push the boat out and get those ones


Just done Week 2 run 1. For some reason I always torture myself - I run a loop and I can either go one way and run down a big hill and then very gradually up the rest of the way, or I can do it the other way around so I go up the big hill last. Whyyyy do I always choose to run up the massive hill at the end!?

Also Laura lies on week 2. She says it's your final run when it isn't yet

Yay! Congrats

1) yeah, that's the best thing about this I think. You get to see places you normally ignore/go straight past.

2) I never notice that. I'm doing this along with my dog (who is improving at the same rate as me, so cute) so she probably scares them all away. They probably watch me and think 'prick' from their hiding places

3) Hooray! What time of day did you run? I did all of week 1 in the day and was a sweaty horrible mess by the end but I literally just got back from this run, and because it was dark and cool I'm not quite so wrecked. Might help

I did complete it, and I've slowly slumped out of the running spirit. In general now, I just do general fitness stuff before I go to sleep, and I've built some musculature. Running is great to keep the fat off and the musculature showing though.

I found that when I was done doing the program I felt like I had done what I'd set out to do and that's what made me stop. I also felt like I needed direction on where to go once I could run the five kilometers (running 5k's three times a week would feel easy after a few weeks).

In general though the program is great, it's really easy for someone who knows nothing about running to adjust to because it takes it so slow.

I hope that you do keep the same level of fitness, but it is easy to slump when you're finished the program feeling like you've done what you originally intended.


EDIT: Also if you haven't done so yet, be sure to stretch both before and after runs. It makes the healing process much more comfortable and your body is ready to run again sooner. There's a good page on the website with the program on it about stretching and has diagrams to show you some of the more beneficial ones.

I bought a pair of minimalist running shoes a couple of months ago (basically incredibly light with very little heel), which are supposed to encourage a midfoot strike, so you put weight on your calves not your heel. Long story I ran 2 miles on the balls of my feet thinking that was what you were supposed to do and couldn't walk for 2 days afterwards. (let your heel touch the ground)

Anyway, I ran my 6.4km this morning before breakfast. I didn't time myself, but I was probably around 34 minutes.

6pm. I got quite lucky though, as there were a few nice breezes that helped.

I skipped to week 3 this morning. It's great switching it up (running/walking). The last 3 minutes of running took forever. I can tell my lungs are getting better. (I smoke)
