If I wanted to pull 6s and flap my extremities I'd just start a crabcore band.

You get to be fit and in shape and desirable to a whole new class of women. Let's say you can pull a four now. When you run a 5K you can get a six.


This.

Don't mean to brag, but I've been doing this a week and I have some visible muscle definition on my legs now

I still don't fit into my "if you can't fit into these, you're too fat" jeans, but I'm getting there. You burn a lot of calories doing these workouts.

I'm in but I start with week six because I'm not that fat.

I find it pretty lame to measure my running only in time though... I'm more concerned about distance and speed.

Sign me up for this. I've been going out for brief runs, and some direction would be great.


Cool!

Yeah, this gives you loads of structure so it's great

Added!

Once you finish this one there's a 5k+ which might help with distance and speed.

I've planned out my days as Saturday, Monday and Thursday. Seems like the best spacing out of my limited evening time.

Quote by TooktheAtrain
Isn't running unhealthy for the tendons? I thought walking was considered the best exercise.


I talked to one of the nice people in the physiotherapy dept at work and they basically said that's just silly nonsense from lazy trolls. Side note: all the attractive people work in physio or dieticians, seems more like a weird coincidence rather than taking their own advice though.

I'm doing it part for general stamina and because I like wearing tight shirts and love-handles suck. Always had slim legs so don't care about that, even though I only wear skinny jeans. I throw about 50 situps/25 pressups before and after the rowing as well though.


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.)

I've seen some 10s in the gym anyways. I'd chat them up but it's hard to look cool while power cleaning.

Dude I made a huge blueberry pie yesterday. I pretty much eat bread/pastries/pie every day. You have to eat quite a lot of it to gain any weight

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.

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

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.

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.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

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'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.

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...

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!
