    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.

    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.

    Here's a nice tip for ya.....

    Terminal 21 opened in Pattaya on Friday just gone, I looked at a thread on the other channel and some poster mentioned it being a great place to get his step count up

    I thought that was genius, walking around airconned shopping malls and perving at chicks to keep in trim.
