    If he is huge, perhaps. ... 250lbs/113.6kg?

    Although going by the photos of himself that he's posted, I don't think he's that large.

    It's probably just that the running machine gives figures more suitable to people running rather than walking.

    the calorie counters on treadmills/ellipticals/stationary bikes are notoriously inaccurate.

    True enough, they're more of a motivational tool.


    Four hours hill walking today, getting ready for the big climb next week.

    I intend to smash the Snowdon horseshoe..

    True, but if you put in your weight, sometimes this helps and some monitor your heartbeat as well.

    I done Brecon Beacons chasing sheep a few years ago!

    Is this classed as a work-out?

    Hi mate, yeh just about ready. Jogged a marathon in 3hrs 50mins two weeks back and felt pretty fresh throughout. Developed a bit of a niggle in my calf so having to taper regardless of whether I want to or not. Done the hard yards though so expecting to feel reasonable on the day, even though I will probably finish it an utter wreck of a person. On the plus side however, the finish line is a about 200 metres away from a Whetherspoons. I shall be getting busy with a Shipyard or seven. And a plate of scampi and chips when I'm suitably shit-faced.

    That takes me back a lifetime or two...the Pyg trail when we had to climb Snowdon 3 times over a week-end just because we could.

    Nowadays I'm content with a second 1 hour cycle ride this week. Not overly challenging, averaging 10mph, but not bad after 10hours at work.

    Indeed, that Pyg trail is a good scramble for the last hour.
    Unfortunately it's thick snow and ice at the moment.

    Had a reasonable 2 hour mountain bike ride along the Trans Pennine Canal today, bit boggy and knackering.

    BTW sterling effort slaps, I cured my calf niggle with turmeric.

    Niggling injuries in amateur athletes are best cured by rest. The older you are, the longer the rest you need.
    Take care, because the work you have put in, can give a false sense of efficiency, when you start back after resting.

    I just had a forced break of 4 days traveling, then got lazy on my return and skipped a few more days. I started back with a gentle swim, then a short bike ride. About 30 minutes each.
    I have deliberately avoided the gym for two reasons. It’s flocking hard work and it’s also the place I get weighed.

    Yesterday a long ride on the bike where most of the hills are up. Today a hard 40 minute session in the gym, mostly upper body.
    Almost no weight gain despite pigging out in singers for 4 days, food and beer.

    If the weather is fine I would prefer to swim tomorrow, but I will probably do another long haul bike ride, because it gives the best buzz.

    Yep, doing the hard yards will help a lot and crusing the marathon should give you a boost.

    I've been researching a bit about ultras. It is something I might consider in a couple of years. Gotta do the mileage first though and test the waters with a marathon.

    I see there was a 100km ultra starting in Pak Chong earlier in the year - January I think. Too far for me but maybe for you at some point in the future.

    You'll deserve it after all that running (60km?). Enjoy.

    Long way round on the bike today. Fook it was harder work than normal. Legs and lungs complaining all the way to the local pool.
    Just sunbathing and a few laps to stretch the limbs.
    Its not like I’m a pro athlete or anything is it?

    Just enough to get the heart pumping. A fourteen minute mile. 1.6 kilometers.

    The usual routine, a bit less strenuous but sounds good.

    I like the block method though I use it as a prop for the smartphone so I can watch videos to pass the time. Too cold and slippery for a proper bike ride and not enough snow for cross country skiing or snow shoes.

    Three months x country skiing in Norway. Fittest I’ve ever been in my life.
