that's a good idea RR - you could probably train and start doing some trainiing while doing your normal job before taking the plunge of giving up your job altogether. The lady that does the spin classes at my gym also has a 9-5 job.
I can do wall pushups
This forum really needs a thumbs up smiley.
I need to do wall ones too then as I struggle to do normal ones. I don't think my upper body is that strong either.
I am going to try sucking my stomach in although I am not sure I want a bigger chest . I would get black eyes.
Jude, you must have had a fantastic couple of days. Massive Well done again to Elif.
so now I can build up the wall ones until I can do knee ones...
yes, we could do with a thumbs up
ecky - I don't want a bigger chest either, but do want a stronger upper body and core, I think pushups help with all of that
Yep. Pushups and pullups combined are a very good upper body workout. Some people do too much chest work and no back work which is why they have a somewhat drooped over appearance. The clue is in the name: pushups take care of your pushing muscles and pullups take care of your pulling muscles (don't pull any muscles though ).
Loula, you don't want any cos they just get in the way . Hope you are okay?
MOOOOOOOOORNIN. No running for me today as starting my Marathon training plan tomorrow. I think it was a plan off Runner's World but its that long ago since I printed it off that I cant remember. I am going to start eating better again after tomorrow too as had lots of rich food and Wine which I am just not used to
loula - they are just lumps of fat, you don't really want them
beautiful morning, did 5.25 miles, but walked quite a bit as my knee wasn't feeling too happy this morning at least I got out there though
The main thing is that you got out there but be careful Mathschick .
Nothing wrong with breasts and cleveages if you ask me!!! I suspect they are a problem when running however!!!
MC-Well done on your 5.25 - hopefully knee is ok?
LLB-Are you ok?
Rest today & off to my parents for lunch shortly.
Forgot to say I have sorted out my fancy dress outfit for New Years Day Race. I am going as Virgil from Thunbderbirds- bought the whole outfit from the party shop.
knee feeling a bit fragile now, have foam rollered and will ice later when I get home from the inlaws. I have a physio appointment on Wednesday anyway.
AF - sounds like a good fancy dress, hope it is comfy for running in!
Hope your knee isn't too bad, MC.
Going to try and get out there later for a 10km - but we'll see how it goes. Sometimes I get to 5km and feel that there's tons left in the tank, that's when I carry on to 10km, but sometimes 5km is enough.
Just said goodbye to parents. Lovely 24hr visit.
AF - sounds a great costume. Rocker and his lovely lady and I are running 5 miles through Broxbourne woods on New Years Day morning if anyone would like to join us.
knee doesn't seem too bad now, but I will refrain from hammering my legs on the turbo. Going for a swim later though. maybe I will just call into the gym before the swim for some gentle exercise
chili - wish I lived a bit nearer, but just googled Broxbourne woods and it is a bit far!
Evening friendlies! Did a 10k in the end; I sorted out a nice new route for myself, a sort of figure of 8. Halfway round, I saw a very overweight chap out for a slow jog. Gave him the thumbs up - made me feel good and hopefully did the same for him as well.
well done RR on your run and probably making that guy's day
did a bit of stretching etc in the gym and had a great swim
*Boing! Boing! Boing!* WhooHoooo. I am so excited!!!! We have just been given tickets for Disney on Ice on Wednesday What a wonderful present!!! * Boing! Boing! Boing!*
