Needing a kettlebell or summit. There’s only so many burpees you can do before losing the will to live. Anyone know anywhere for online stock?

Amazing how quickly you can settle into running regular 10kms. Taken almost 5mins off my PB in the last few weeks Monty Chuckle

Good going Pretty good

Are you doing that fasted?

I thought I was doing alright running 5k every day. I train on an empty stomach, brutal the first few days but, barring illness, I've been doing every day since mid-December.

Missing weight training but I've got a chin-up bar and some resistance bands so I'm just focusing on maintaining until I can get back into the gym. Trouble I have with body weight exercises is progression, push-ups and squats are too easy and there's only so many variants you can do before those aren't enough of challenge either. Think I'm going to have to start training the cats to climb on my shoulders or something Heh

This company is doing collection only in Glasgow, quite hard to get a hold of, but I know of a few people who have managed to get stuff from them. They post updates of their stock quite regularly.

Managed out for my first run in about 10 months today Quite Good Not that far, just a short 3.5k, but it’s a start. Think I mentioned I’d been following my physio routine and mixing in new exercises the last few weeks as the strength has returned to my leg, so decided it was time to start easing myself back into running.

Totally pain free on the run as well Jj zing Aside from how hard it was after so long Dismay

Such a relief man Laugh

Squats and lunges are the way to go.
