Ah, as I thought, sorry I asked. Sounds like it's a great work out though.

K80 - what's forest fitness? (although I suspect I'll regret asking!)

Right, we seem to have got to Monday. So this is the day I said I'd start the food diary. I'm putting this here so you can all nag me tonight and see if I've actually started it! (oh and make sure I've recorded my weight from friday too, cos otherwise I'll forget what it actually was...)

Mikasa - it's Monday!

Anyone else starting anything today?

I'm not running today - the weather's still horrible and loads of ice out there - but am planning on a rowing/crosstraining session this evening.

I have that problem too K80 - I have a crosstrainer and a rowing machine and I have the TV set up with DVD player. I was watching Twenty Twelve whilst rowing yesterday and nearly did myself an injury - it's very dry humour, so you're not really expecting it.  Previously I was watching Glee which is great because it's very up-tempo and to be honest it doesn't really matter if you miss a bit.  I've finished the first 2 series that I borrowed from my sister in law though.

Do we need targets? I just aim for a downwards trend. Just to be contrary, I weigh on Fridays, but always start the healthy eating/exercise efforts on Mondays. No, I know this makes no sense...

Got an email this morning from bupa great runs telling me that winter is over. Clearly they haven't looked out of my window! Not going running today - it's too windy here and the snow will make getting out of the village too difficult to get to the group I'm meant to be running with. Suppose I should try to make myself do a session on the crosstrainer instead.

I'm not quick - I have only really done up to 5k (few training runs up to 6.5k but that was before the evil virus last month) and that still takes me 35 minutes!  I know, other people can run 10k quicker than I can do 5....Still, I've got more room for improvement!

Well, the way the weather's going (howling gales, something which is a cross between sleet and hail falling and settling nicely on the ground just in time for night to fall and it to freeze over) I can't see the run happening tomorrow...
