    Spent the day cleaning the house ready to hand back to the agents. Filled the car with accumulated gash and did a tip run.
    Put most of the winter clothing in storage and packed T shirts, shorts, flip flops and 1 waterproof top.
    Sold half the house contents to a mate who has just split, with his Mrs and the other half to incoming tenants. She is Malaysian and he is an ex rig worker.
    Knackered and opened the brandy.

    'aint that the truth, and that's just the half of it. When did the UK get so fucking anal about everything?
    Too expensive
    Too cold
    Too fussy
    and too far from the flawed but amazing LOS.

    Today, went to the gym and started out with body-weight exercises (chin ups, ab crunches). Then lifted weights, doing exercises targeting the back and arm muscles. Finished up by running for an hour on the treadmill (10k).

    Lots a runners here, eh? I bless my knee joints every day of my life. Been running (mostly inside) since 1998, even though I have severe osteoarthritis. But my knee joints have held up excellently ever since (I also trek and climb in Nepal twice a year and have never had a problem with them (had a split tooth once). It's my favorite cardio exercise, mainly because it can't be beat for helping control my weight, although I was perfectly happy with elliptical machines for 6+ years as well. I'm sure the day will come when I have to go back to those. Looking forward to it!

    ^ Thanks, I was fairly happy with it but I'm still struggling a bit for fitness. The cooler weather should help a bit but more sleep and less food will also help.

    Two minutes off your best 10k time in only 2 weeks is good news for you. Keep it up, Slap. A sub 50 for 10k before New Year for me would please me, too.

    Good on you, too. And don't forget that staying totally focused for 45 minutes to an hour (an absolute necessity in order to prevent face plants) is truly an exercise in meditation also. Running is simply the single best exercise there is for fitness, IMO.

    Today ran 10k, indoors, in an hour exactly.

    I don't stress on a faster run but do stress on not running often enough. That means, in my perfect world, 5 or 6 runs per week, along with 3 or 4 weight lifting workouts. I was laid low by diarrhea and today was my first run in a week. I'm pretty pleased because I think exercise is like that proverbial snowball: momentum is key. It's hard to get started and the longer you wait, the harder it is to get started. Similarly, once you get going, the easier it is to keep going.

    I agree. It's much easier when it is a habit or a regular lifestyle choice.

    I did a 10km run today and surprised myself with the time: forty nine and a half minutes. Happy.

    Congrats. That equals my all-time best (indoors) and I believe that was 10 years ago.
