    That's the sort of weekly mileage I would love to be doing. I'm struggling with attaining half that at the moment.

    Maybe next year. Or the year after.

    FYI, TU 2018 was called off because they couldn't get permits approved.

    Was a productive week, kept up the pace and still enjoying the exercise and jogging routine. Endorphin highs are a nice plus.

    Getting high is the name of the damn game.

    I ran up here earlier in the week - thrice.




    Then I ran into the pub and got seriously wet

    ^ what weights did you use?

    And what are lat pull downs? Are you walking off a chair and just dropping and not pulling yourself back up? (Walking the plank), which is a good way to build those muscles up until you have the strength to do pull ups.

    I used a machine for a lot of them and the machine just has numbers (1 to 20) rather than the actual weights. I know roughly the weights for the bench presses but my PR agent advises me not to tell anyone. He thinks it might make me look like a little girl.
    None of the weights were heavy. I'm not that fit at the moment and I was doing quite high reps so that rules out heavy weights. For the leg presses, I started off at 6 on the scale and worked up to 10. For the lats stuff (pull downs and rows), it was all at level 6.

    That's a decent all over body workout, how many times a week? Is your plan to start the weights low and gradually increase keeping a record?

    I need to get back down the gym, not been for two weeks now and starting to feel like jelly.

    I don't go to the gym regularly, Chitty. Just now and again, and it's usually an all over body workout. I don't keep a written record, just a rough mental note but I adjust the weights to how I feel each time anyway and if I feel fitter and stronger, I'll increase the weights but I never do heavy weights and low reps.
