    Nice one. Good time as well. You should try half a marathon in under two hours. It doesnt really mean much, but mentally its a good feeling when u achieve half a marathon in under 2hrs. You probably do it in a weeks time if you are doing 20k in 1h57 this week lol.

    Been training for marathon, doing weekly 15k, 21k and then push myself, 28k is my maximum at the moment. I used to run at around 4’30 per km, but had a problem with the heart and now i am on a betablocker medication, so the heartrate stays low and i cant seem to push myself as i was able to do before. But i dont really get tired and can keep going.

    I've actually stopped running for a couple week's. The long runs were making me drop a bit too much weight and just looking skinny..

    Might jump on them but just keep it to 10k and smaller one's here and there as gonna bulk up more I think..

    Fair play for still keeping at that mate. Hard going. My heart rate is always slightly lower like in the 50's as I went to top up my da's bone marrow the other week and it was low again. They did ask me if I'm active and said I walk a lot and run, plus workout and they said that's completely normal then..

    I would be tempted to do a half marathon as a one off though. Even for a charity or something just to test myself. What is a half marathon in kilometres?

    Its not much more then what you did, you ran 20km. Half a marathon is only about 1,3km more. So when u done the 20k, you were almost there.

    i have always been into hiking and running, love covering the distance and going against the elements. The heart wont stop me, its under control with the medication, so i can keep doing it. What i do to keep from being too skinny is pushups in the morning and evening, keeps the shoulders wide, but the rest stays lean. And when you mix it with hiking you keep your legs from getting to thin too. If you heart rate is in the 50s during the day, it will probably drop in the 40s or lower as you sleep. My smartwatch has an automatic alarm if it drops under 40 lol. Happens often enough lol.

    Aye it's very tempting mate. I may bang one out..

    I usually done press ups most day. My shoulders are pretty wide, I'm 6'1 and no lanky in the slightest but I could visibly notice the drops in weight as soon as I finished some of my longer runs..

    Good that you're still in ro it all my man. Keep it up..

    In to the 40's give me the fear that I'll just keep going down and keel over :giggle1:

    Got a bit more serious with my diet and now meal prepping twice a week, aiming for 180g of protein each day. Lost a stone but increased muscle mass 1kg in the last 4 weeks.

    Bench up to 85kg, squatting 90kg and deadlift a very weak 85kg :38:

    Enjoying the grind as things stand.
