    Nice on BM

    With me the heaving thing was a first though I did have to have a lie down after the last 10k race I did

    Keep pushing:biggrin

    Best thing you can do is to keep moving - even if only a little - and keep your head elevated above your heart. Lying down isn't a good plan.

    It was mainly due to a headache I developed halfway round in the heat.

    Did anyone see Matt Dawsons toughguy race last night

    Criminy I'm glad I'm doing it in summer and not winter. Have to go round twice to compensate for reduced risk though.

    Wow. This thread is really going the distance. No running for me. Too hot for one thing and besides, I'm saving my knees for old age (shaddup). Did 4 sessions on the Elliptical machine this week at 45 minutes per. I figure that's good cardio, and I don't have to worry about cars trying to hit me.

    Does jogging count? just started last week. A friend and myself hooked up to do 30 to 40mins joggin/walking.
    We jog for about 5 mins then walk 2 (at a fast pace) then jog 5 again etc. Dunno if this makes much difference but this time we tried to jog for shorter periods and walk less but still do 30 mins.

    My friends into her fitness, doing biking everyday to work, about 1hour general exercise and 2 days a week jogging. By her calculations we used up 400 to 500 calories each time. For me i just use wii fit everyday for 35mins and then twice a week jog, and my shins are hurting as i'm not used to it.

    Jogging is great Twizz - go you!


    I have been having personal training sessions with virtual coach "Maya" (Wii) Graphics are not that great, but, if you know your exercises then you do them properly..had 4 sessions this week and can already feel it on my stomach / arms - great feeling!! :D

    Online logging and analysis tool that doesnt require you to have gps

    I have used it but use a piece of software called Sporttracks cos I use my gps every time I do anything more strenuous than shopping

    Jogging soooo counts

    Hmm decided to add to this one rather than start a new thread

    Heres some pics from the Toughguy race I did. Took 3 and a half hours to get round mainly because of queueing for obstacles and several wardrobe failure. I lost almost two stone in the build up to it to make obstacles easier to climb. Looking forward to winter when all the events are out of the way and I can get back on the weights. Took days to recover use of my legs fully and was cut and bruised to hell.

    Enjoy

    Fantastic - that's great!

    I haven't done anything much of late - been to the gym once so far this year. Do have an excuse though - started studying for a degree last October and it takes a lot of time up at the evenings / weekends if you are also in a full time job...and want a family / social life!

    Keep up the good work BM

    I can barely walk at the moment :(

    Overextended some toes in a BJJ class. At first I thought the toes were broken but after 2 months the pain was still there. X rays have confirmed no breakages so its soft tissue. Sports physio and months of hobbling for me I'm afraid. No gym. No fighting. No running. Put a stone on as well:rolleyes:

    Ran for the first time in almost four months... not since dropping 25+ pounds. Well... it seems to have helped, not carrying a toddler around my middle: I dropped 1:30 off my per-mile time... from 11:06/mi to 9:36/mi. That's 28:48 for a 3-mile run.
