    Yeah ok.Wuss.😁



  • [quote]Any tips on what I should say to him when he says "What do you want out of this?" apart from the obvious... lose 16 kgs[/quote]

    Tell him you want to be able to run a marathon in 18 months time, and get light enough to not injure yourself while trinaing, or smoetrhing.



  • Right! Went to the gym and got a proper weight from a digital machine rather than using the type that you slide the weight across the top of the bar.

    Actual weight is 113.5 which slightly better.... but get this.  Body fat % of 36.3%    Chuuuuuuuuuubo!!!!

    Had a personal training session and passed out.. truly.  I came round and he fed me a chalky tasting energy lollie thing... thought that would have been the end but nup!  We kept going.  When finished I just sat slumped in the changing rooms with head between legs trying not to throw up!!!

    Excellent Session though.  Loved every waking moment of it and will carry it on.  It felt like the first 30 minutes of the first rugby game of the season.

    Will check weight again 2 weeks today

    MENTAL NOTE FOR HOOROO!!!!  Remember to eat breakfast before doing killer workout!!!

    Told ya...Now you'll be eating Shreaded Wheat.

    Oh and well done Hoo,keep up the good work.



  • Going through a total body hurt at the moment. Completely seized up.  Even was struggling with the bowling machine in nets last night.Â

    Need to rid myself of the Lactic acid build up, so a light jog/bike today.  Eating has been gooooood



  • I love that feeling, your body getting back into action.  Remember not have done ANY running for about a year after finished rugby.  Played an afternoons touch, about an hour, and two days later my quads didn't work.  Swore to never let myself go like that again!!  Was rowing and cycling up a strom still, and doing weights, just had not run, and wow, did I suffer!!

    I agree.  It's a good hurt rather than a bad one.  Wouldn't mind having the strength to pick up a pen though



  • You still off the smokes Hooroo?

    [/quote]

    Not quite.  Had a few when I went out last Friday.  But no-where near as much as I used to smoke when out haveing a drink.  Haven't had a sober one in ages now



  • Tell me something.  Do avacados contain Carbs as I'm trying not to eat carbs in the evening, but my Carrot,Lettuce and Tomatoe salad didn't cut it so I threw in an avacado.  Yummo.

    No meat tonight, but Oh My Days if I see a takeaway delivery vehicle near the house there will be a mugging!



  • 40 minutes cardio keeping my heart rate between 163 and 170.  Last ten minutes was a 10 minute row but I was pretty stuffed by then. It is a Concept 2 as well.

    10mins = 2267m

    Not too bad as I can do 5000 in 20 mins pretty easy if I haven't done anything beforehand



  • Made up the yummiest fatbusting soup tonight.

    Sweated down 2 whole leeks with 4 sliced garlic cloves, 2 fresh chilis and fresh rosemary.  Then added a litre of Chicken stock and a massive handful of fresh flat leaf parsley.  Let it simmer for an hour and bob's ya Mums sisters live in lover!!!

    Fillinf enough and super tasty.  Good for the waistline too



  • 50 Min Gym session.

    Did a ten minute hill climd and then 10 mins row beating yesterday metres by 23 2290

    Then 320 Chest Press followed by 1 minute intensive sprint on the bike
    3
    20 Lat Pulls followed by 1 minute intensive sprint on the bike
    3* 15 and 3*15 Tri push downs and Bicep curls followed by 1 minute intensive sprint on the bike
    Then 100 sit-ups in different variations.
    Took me ages to get heart-rate back down.  It is 50 mins since the session and I'm still beading a little bit

    Brekkie was Fat Busting Fruit Smoothie (That's actually what it is called from the store tha sells it)
    Lunch, Tuna Salad followed by Fruit Salad
    Dinner will be the rest of the Soup I made last night.



  • good work Hooroo - welcome to the age of concept2, and improving your times by metres and seconds...  My last to PB increases were by about half a second and 3 or 4 metres.  Must need another conditioning lag before going hard out again.

    ANyway, well done big fella, keep it going, waiting for the challenge to come on.... :coolsmiley:

    Cheers

    Already feeling better in mind.
    Give me a month on it and then maybe a challenge will be likely



  • It's been a goooooood week for Hooroo!!!

    No Carbs.  Smoothie for Breakfast every morning.  Tuna Salad for lunch everyday and Chicken for dinner.

    Spent about 6 hours at the gym since Monday (That will include this arvos session)

    Few beers tonight though watching the Footy



  • After some pathetic efforts at Fatbusting, this week has seen the beginning of proper work.Â

    Have been off the smokes for 3 weeks now and put on about 5kg.  Mrs Hooroo is now concerned about my health (rather than saying she's not attracted to a fat fluffybunny )

    Went for a 1 mile run on Monday to rid of Cobwebs and then a 2 mile run last night.  I have got to got out with a mate of mine who runs ultra-marathons for a 4.4 mile run/walk as he is going to show me an enjoyable running circuit in Kent but knows I won't be able to run the whole thing just yet.

    No pains from running yet which is good as I'm bloody heavy and obviously will be prone to impact injuries at my weight (118kg)

    Food has been all good and no beer during the week.

    Watch this space as every other fatbusting attempt has been all talk and no pork.



  • Another 2 miler last night.  The 4.4 miler is tonight.Â

    Lactic Acid Aches todays but went for a walk this mornig to loosen up.  Feeling a little better now



  • go you good thing go.

    What's that chinese proverb about a journey of a thousand miles starting with s ingle step - you've taken it, so look out world.

    So does the journey to the pub, and the pie shop...



  • Cheers.

    4.4 Miler last night.  Took me about 3/4 of an hour to cool down after.  Ran about 98% but was at snails pace at the end as it was up hill.  Feel like a real champion today though.  Training Patner tld me to have today off as I'm 118 kg's and he doesn't recommend running every day.  Fair Enough!



  • 4 miler last night.  Was the best run for me yet.  Managed to run up both the hills.

    Dinner was Watercress, Two tomatoes and an avacado.  Don't why I had so little, but i guess it was due to not really feeling like eating after the run.

    Good Boy!



  • Massive Wagon wobble

    Went out with Duluth on the gas and finished the night with Southern fired chicken and ribs... moreish little blighters those Ribs.

    Massive hangover today so I have snuck away A Large Big Mac Combo, A quater pounder and a 20 pack of nuggets.  Feeling rather full but content!



  • MvJ preferred your posts about running, but I certainly understand the eating required after a night out with Duluth  :happy:

    Where I live it is hills in all directions, so I have to run up and down hills when I go for a run. It's no fun at the time but, even if you go really slowly, you get an unbeatable sense of achievement if you make the top of a hill without yielding to the temptation to walk.

    I agree.  I will go for a jog tonight but it will only be a 2 miler.  The track we do is all up and down with only a couple of flat straights

    Jesus when you fall off the wagon you do it in style mate!



  • Right back onto the Wagon and have attached an extra Mule.

    Excellent run last night.  4 miles but was able to power up the final hill.  Was pretty stoked as I usually plod a bit quicker than walking pace.

    Dinner was two large tomatos and two peaches as I was too knackered and never feel like eating after a late run.

    Breakfast was something that resembled a thimble full of greek Yoghurt and berries.  Bloody hungry but coffee helps.  Boxing at lunchtime today.



  • 6 MILES, 6 MILES, 6 MILES!

    Wahhoooeee.

    A bit sore today but am stoked that I have reached the 10k mark.  Next rung in the ladder is 8 miles but I have been told to stick with 6 miles-ish until the 31st of August and then we can push it a bit more.

    Feeling ALOT fitter but I doubt that I have lost weight



  • fuck I soooo hate running.  Good work Hooroo - keep going!

    Same here Bartman.  I'm lucky that I have a running partner who is very motivated and there are plenty of tracks through the forest to prevent the boredom.  Only problem is that it's all up and down with only a few flats, but I assume that will mean that I will be able to go a bit further on a normal flat road

  • At the work gym.  They hire this dude to come in twice a week.

    I did a bit of it a few years back and it ruined me. Thing that makes me laugh is how big the guys are without being heavy....if you catch my drift. You go there and say ok i am 14 stone and that makes you a cruiser weight, not even a light heavy weight or anything...and the guys that fight at cruiser weight seem massive.

    Good for your stability too. Trail running is almost always a harder workout than straight road or track.

    Good work big man!

    Cheers mate, interesting to here about stability as I have a bung knee and piss weak ankles, so hopefully this will help.

    Another 6 miler on the cards tonight



  • when you hit Whanga next Hooroo I'll have to take you out on a few of the tracks in the foirestry for running on then - the only place I can run now, because it bores the crap out of me on the road - so if I get the inane urge to run, it's a mountina bike / run thing in the hills.  Lotsa fun!

    But I still hate running!

    I'm still enjoying running as I feel myself getting fitter and I'm 'stronger' for every run I do so far. Would love to go over the tracks round Whanga, so I will hold you to that offer Thanks

    Still hate running though.



  • Girly run last night. 2 miles to cricket practise and then bowled in the nets for an hour and had a bat until I got a full bunger in the ankle.  It still smarts and the bruising has crept round to the sole of my foot.

    Cricket this arvo though, so will hopefully run it off
