I've considered the switch from beer to wine but, as you say, it's bloody expensive out here.

Other than that, I don't have a sweet tooth.

A nutritionist friend tells me that as long as you exercise, the body can process fats. It's sugar that needs to go. I've found it relatively easy to wean myself off most sweet stuff, but of course alcohol hides lots of sugar too. The only concession I've made there is drinking more wine than beer, but I know it's really hard to find affordable wine in Thailand.

You don't even need the exercise, the body and brain can work just fine using fat (ketones) for energy. It's the way I've eaten for the last two years or so.

On the booze front; lager, beer and cider are to be avoided but dry wines and spirits are fine (just watch the mixers). Plus being in ketosis gets you drunk quicker so it's cheaper too!

I went for my first run on Tuesday. When do my calves stop hurting? I'm keen to go again.

That varies on your general fitness. Don't rush it as rest is also vital.

How far did you run?

DOMS, Probably a couple more days hurt but today likely the peak. Should get less/none of this when you go regularly.

I found my calves stopped hurting and the other parts started.

My knees are currently giving me grief. I think it may just be because they're not used to the regular impact, or something like that.

I cycle every day, average 50km a week. First run was 3km. Cardio wise I felt like I could go another 3km fairly easily but my body was just starting to hurt and didn't want to overdo it. Also had a massive blister. I was hoping to go again today but I'm nowhere near ready for another.

I find even switching from regular treadmill running  back to road knackers the muscles, particularly knees, at least for a few runs.

Done.

Reading the running and cycling threads on here and seeing other people do exercise always makes me feel a lot fitter.

No disrespect to Jayo, but why do people put their distances down in KM? Really annoys me, and makes it sound further than it actually is. I'm a miles man.

Thank you.

It annoys me too, but I didn't want to bring up something so frivolous.
