Poor guy is a glutton for punishment, he's only just done one literally yesterday! Silly sausage.


Which one are you doing?

I went and did a 20 mile race yesterday. It was rather hilly.

I managed it in just over 4 hours. I ache a little today :)

Ashby 20. It makes Broseley look fat.

I'm assuming you mean 'flat'... in that case, I'll leave it for now ;)

Less than four hours of the shitty bits of training left, then the lovely taper.

Due to pain in my feet and calves and knees, I hadn't done any serious exercise between the end of June last year and Christmas, this lead to me putting on a quite a bit of weight

I started going on walks again in January, and although I have not done as many as I would like, I have still walked over 220km this year. I have also not had any alcohol since about 03:00 on Jan 1st (that's just over 100 days)

Despite that, the last time I weighed myself, I was exactly the same weight I was on Jan 1st

I know it's not all about weight, but I don't feel or look any slimmer either. I think the pain in my lower legs was partly caused by the stress of being the weight I am.

There's no really point to this post, I just wanted to moan about the lack of progress

You are more active than you were, so you must be converting fat to muscle and - even more importantly at this stage! - supportive/connective tissue, and doing cardiovascular improvement.

I fully understand the frustration; I never lost more than 4kg from starting weight 4.5 years ago and in fact weigh more now, no.matter the combination of diet, booze, exercise and illness, I never looked any slimmer or trimmer (and again, look fatter now) but the results absolutely speak for themselves, I move more weight more times and hold better form doing it.

That is intended to say - don't be disheartened, mirrors and scales only tell a specific measure of the truth, not the whole truth.
