Ouch..

I went for the gentle option today. A 10 miler with 1600ft of elevation... Somehow the whole route feels like it's going up a hill..

I did a 6 mile run this afternoon. Not done more than 4 miles for a while due to work.

Just wish I had more spare time to do more.

And there was I feeling pleased with myself for doing a 2 mile walk in half an hour... Best get myself back to the gym tomorrow.

In all seriousness I am going more for cardio than weights this time, I want to loose weight not gain it.

Fair play Duke if you can just pick up from where you left off. I've never been able to run 6 miles.

Good idea Stonesie, that's what I'm hoping to get out of cycling. I have 20kg to lose.

Commuted by MTB.

I presume my watch wasn't accurately detecting my HR because I set 5 PRs on Strava and my max HR was only 89bpm. All other segments were my 2nd fastest.

Probably a question for Perks... how do you stop getting a painfully numb meat & 2 veg? I had to stop to allow the shrivelled items to return to a semi-normal shape, reposition and continue.

Do you use a chest strap or a built in sensor on the watch ?? I've got a sensor on the watch that periodically needs a good clean or it gets gunged up with stuff and doesn't read properly. I also have to wear the watch quite tight or I get the same issue.

With regards to sore gentlemen veg, are you wearing padded shorts ?? lycra with a decent chamois or similar ?? If not that may help, other than that be more careful landing jumps so you don't smack you nuts into the saddle on landing :D :D (shocked)

The HR sensor is on the rear of my smart watch and I had the strap done up as tight as I did on previous rides and it's only got a small amount of skin oil on it. Gave it a wipe, will see if it reads similar this afternoon.

Yep I have bib shorts with a decent chamois. I just don't know where is best to position my manhood. I have tried standing the little man to attention, like when you're a teen tucking your boner into your waist band. This helps slightly but it's a strange sensation.

Don't worry about jumping, I have a 150mm dropper post ;)

Saddle height and set up ,get a proper bike fit by an experienced shop with somebody that also rides
Padded shorts and expensive saddles wont really help
alternatively get HRT and have a sex change

Ride into work 31mins
Ride home 26mins.

There's a reduction of 20m climbing on the way home but it's pretty flat. My knee hurts after that though.

I did barbell squats today for the first time in about 20 years.

I'm going to hurt tomorrow.

Each set you did will provide you with an exponential level of regret!

4x8 sets

They were light. I did two lots of 50kg and 60kg

But my hamstrings weren't happy.

You might be alright.

But don't drop anything, just in case!

Had a message from my old PT. A client hadn't shown up, do I fancy a free session? So I went and did an hour with him. It was good to catch up.

Good gym session today, couldn't get on all of the equipment that I wanted to but it just made me mix it up a bit... Tomorrow might be interesting.
