    Ran 30k on Tuesday. Legs were still * last night so couldn’t go training, playing five a side tonight and still a bit sore but should be grand.

    That will probably be the end of the really long runs for a while for me now that I’m back training and have matches coming up. Just too hard to fit them in given how long it takes to recover from them. Will just stick to doing 5k’s/Intervals and sprints.

    Lockdown has truly been a game of two halves!
    Month one after home deliveries from the butchers, Christie's the bakers and eating for fun I had put a 10lb on.

    Right on the healthy diet, the 10lb has gone and another 20lb on top of that!

    Three Jean sizes in one lockdown :56:

    After my 100km challenge I’ve done almost nothing for two weeks. Did a 4km run (more of a jog really) last night and then a few sets of bodyweight exercises at the end. Squats, sit ups and press ups. 5 sets of 10. Can feel it in my thighs today. Amazing how quickly your fitness can drop off.

    The left arm on my assault bike is bust ( I have emailed Power Fitness as it is still under warranty)so I have had to think of some different cardio to do before work on a morning. So Thursday I decided to do the Insanity fit test for the first time in 18 months. Spent three days walking like John Wayne, my thighs were * killing me. I never really think about which muscles you use day to day. Walking upstairs is fine, however coming downstairs has taken ages and no doubt looked pretty comical.

    So, I've shared a couple of body fat calculators in here and always wondered how close they were to the truth. Using them today gives me between 17 and 18 %

    My calipers arrived this morning and I've done the Jackson and Pollock measurements and the result was 13% :biggrin:

    Went to an osteopath this morning about a recurring shoulder issue I’ve been having for the past few years that’s progressively been getting worse/more frequent and turns out I’ve got tendinosis.

    Was given a few exercises to do with a power band, along with shoulder dislocates and he reckons a few weeks of doing them and I’ll notice a big difference. Quite a relief as it’s something that’s constantly in the back of my mind if I’m going in for any sort of challenge when playing football and probably affecting my performance, even subtly.

    I was convinced it was completely goosed and would need surgery so it’s quite a load off the mind.

    According to the BBC website, gyms are opening again on 25th July, in England. Finally.

    Think I'll wait and see how the gyms are operating first, have cancelled my membership for now. Got a few mates who are definitely going back so will wait and hear their feedback. I've been doing OK just with weights, chest expander and excercise bike in the gaff, along with walks etc. Went up Ben Vorlich today and felt fine both up and down, think the amount of walking I've done during lockdown has helped a lot.

    Been to two separate gyms since Friday and it's been fine for me. Lots of sprays and tissue and wipes to clean equipment, good distancing from other people, plenty of hand sanitiser around. Saw people wearing masks too.

    I'm really glad to get back to it tbh, though it's the first time I've done legs in a while and my thighs are hurting today.

    Yeah calipers are a bit funky depending on how you carry your fat..

    Sure I measured like 9% before which was off because I carry my fat round my lower abs and waist but I get crazy lean in my legs and arms.

    Was more like 14% at least.

    Look after your feet. They’ll suffer the most if you don’t.

    Will do @Minty .

    Walked 5k Thursday and my wife got a massive blister.

    I could walk for miles all day but when it comes to jogging/running my chest and lungs cant take it........especially since my last lung op.

    But going to push through as much as possible.
    So important and it's great being involved with the Facebook's group too.
    Never really been involved with any groups....not for a long time and it feels great to talk to people who know where you've been. You know?
