Back for more!



  • @NTA said in Back for more!:

    Just ran for the first time in months.

    Fuck all this

    Yeah running is shit unless it's a short sprint. Even then it's shit.

    Focus on being a power athlete, do something amazing briefly as opposed to something mundane for ages.

    This also applies to ones sex life.



  • "Power athlete" get a load of this fluffybunny.

    Do strong things......briefly........

    Then fuck off for a beer/feed.

    I'm not sure what your issue is.

    Which reminds me: the lady wife is in a bit of a pickle as her yoga instructor is off popping out a brat. So she's looking for options, and the conversation went something like this:

    Her: "Maybe we should go do some hardcore cardio together?"
    Me: "Well let's go to the gym that [friend of the family] owns an-."
    Her: "Woah no way!"
    Me: "-d get some muscle tone with weight work".
    Her: Blank stare
    Me: "Well, let's see what they say"

    Maybe try the man-wife then. I think he's just finished some half ironman or some shit.

  • @MN5 exactly. I think - based on what she's done for fitness to date (Mum's dancing class, Zumba, Yoga) - that it is more about the setting and the company, than any kind of effort.

    In effect, she doesn't want to look bad in front of people younger than her.

    ah news for you love, that's all of us in any fitness setting.

  • I've also started doing pushups, chinups, and other body weight like squats and lunges to get a bit of tone back.

    All of this sucks equally compared to the running. But it has to be done.

    Really ? I love that sorta shit but hate running.....anything more than a sprint is a waste of time considering the fact I have a car.



  • @MN5 and someone else is paying for the gas!

    Shit yeah. I'd turn it off and on at the lights otherwise.



  • 3km in just under 19 minutes. Everything from minute 2 onward sucked.



  • Had dreams of running 5km but settled for 3km after getting to 2km nearly wrecked me. Again the time is well out, but I'm 104kg so naturally it is going to suck.

    I'm starting back at the gym this week in order to force myself to get into a workout space - $17/week includes one group session which I'll make something weights-related. In between body weight 1-2 times a week at home, running 2-3 times per week and some heavier gym sessions I should start to see some tone.

    Still - need to get the eating back under control but shit its hard in winter.

    Winter is a pretty relative term where you're from.

    Personally I go hard out with the fasting that others on here do cos the fact is I'm on the road quite a bit with work and completely lack the organisational skills to actually make lunch so find myself having a kebab/sushi every now and again. Also given work pays for a meal more often than not this is steak and chips.

    104kg is hardly disastrous for a former prop though is it ?

    Regularly goes negative in my part of Western Sydney which is wintry enough. Not the -8C seen in parts of the Waikato recently, but there is no ocean out here to stabilise things.

    I'm not dead, but it does make it hard to get back into running. I started the original weight loss @ 116kg back in 2011 (August), and it feels a lot tougher this time. Being older definitely doesn't help.



  • @NTA what @MN5 said, get on the fasting train bro!



  • @Paekakboyz said in Back for more!:

    Well either that or have the time, discipline and inclination to eat super healthy.

    I know which I find easier 🙂



  • @MN5 😂 😂 ain't nobody got time for that!
