I lost 2 kilos in the last month, while gaining muscle. Fingers crossed that my belly might finally be losing the battle.

In Arras after leaving Paris this morning having done the Marathon yesterday.  Hot.  And I have a million excuses for doing crap.  15 minutes more than my crap time in London last year.  Lovely weekend though.  A lot more relaxed than London - my kids jumped on to the course to run the last hundred metres with me.  They would probably have been wrestled the the ground and shot in London!

Nice course, 1 notable hill, a lot of annoying cobbles and potholes which resulted in my taking a tumble early on that I didn't really recover from.

Recommended though.

Great work, most people usually gain weight when they gain muscle (the usual, muscle weighs more than fat). Good on you. That's excellent progress.

I'm not overweight so it wouldn't necessarily be a problem if I did put some on. It's not the weight that's the problem, rather how, and where, it's distributed. The belly's been stubborn so far but hopefully it's giving up the fight.

I have physio on 20th April, does anyone know if there are any excercises I can do prior to physio that will strengthen the ankle?
I'd be very wary of doing anything much without professional guidance, wait until you see the physio rather than risk causing a setback with well-meaning but ill-informed advice on t'interweb. Not worth it for the sake of a couple of weeks' headstart IMO

You are probably right. I would be devastated if I buggered it again and had to start again!

No absolutely, this is often the misconception with people in reference to cholesterol levels too. Many think that it's only overweight people who may have bad cholesterol levels. Total myth. Without suggesting your previous diet, did you used to enjoy "British style curries"? (I'm aware you're not UK based). Still great work though and indeed, that middle age spread catches up with all of us at some point and it's all relative to our own natural size, shape, metabolism and many other factors.

Well done dude. Would love to do that, how much would it roughly cost for a weekend for two and race?

Bloody well done. Every time I struggle over the line of a half-marathon, my esteem goes up for anyone who does a second lap.

Thanks Gents

Cost wise - working it all out not cheap, very conservative estimates 

Race - 100
Doctors note - 30
Tunnel - 166
Airbnb - 300
Spending money - 200

Really probably at least a grand.  Im sure there are cheaper ways to do it but bringing the wife and 2 kids doesnt make it cheap.

Due a niggling knee injury I've had to limit the running and cycling but being a stress head I decided to use the headspace app and meditate every day in January. I did this and thought I'd carry on - I'm now up to 100 day streak.

It does make very subtle changes to you, but very positive ones.

and no I'm not a hippy, or vegan  Cheesy

Yep I've used this in the past. Simple techniques and once you get it/accept what it's doing then it's a fantastic tool to have. I go back to it every now and again but have used my own meditation as well as Tai Chi, which is amazing the more you develop it.

Plenty of cruciferous veg (cauliflower, broccoli, sprouts, kale).
Meat.
Cheese.
Eggs.
Nuts.
Fathead Pizza.


Best to do during the summer months so you can get the windows open.

Anyone doing London Marathon this year?

My continued mid life crisis has resulted in me in doing a few little marathon in the last couple of years.  This year Im doing 5 marathons for Shelter trying to raise 8k for the homeless.  Tomorrow is my 3rd marathon this month.  Manchester followed by Brighton the next week was a bit of a daft move.

Anyway, had a week off so it should hurt as badly tomorrow.  If any of you are feeling generous please do sponsor me here

The shelter running shirt is a lovely red and white which makes me feel at home, though it is a little tight around my still ample gut.
