  • 3X Yes today. Managed to get out for a run and kept below my target. Pass days - many. I am just here for fun now :-)
  • I need to get back on the straight and narrow. I was doing great and got a coach who I trust. He runs and wins the triathlons I target and he is one of the nicest blokes you could meet. Then last week he called and told me he had to stop coaching because he had just been diagnosed with bowel cancer. It's shocking that a 40…

  • 3 x yes today. I had a great session on my bike simulator Fulgaz. I tried to ride one of the training courses for the triathlon I want to do again. I had to bail after 2 hours because my pulse wasn't behaving itself and staying too high but I got over the main hills so I'm happy about that. 3 pass days used. Thanks…

  • 3x yes today 1 pass day regarding aeroplanes - I've spent quite a few years of my life designing them. They are very safe. The systems are designed to be fail safe and can take multiple failures before anything bad will happen, this is measured in failures per billion hours. Each time there is an incident, which is very…

I just hurt so much all over :-( Saying that I had 2 jabs of astrozenica before and COVID still nearly killed me so I am glad I have the opportunity to…
  • I love today's message. My favorite saying is "its a marathon , not a sprint". we have better days and not so better days but if we keep moving forward more than we go backwards we make progress :-)
  • 3 x yes Pass days 1 Just made it today. I ate crap and I had my COVID booster so I'm feeling ill at the moment but just managed to get below by doing a second longer dog walk.

  • 3x yes 1 pass day I think my best nsv was just going for a walk yesterday I managed to go 10 miles over some hilly trails without it crippling me. I remember 3 months ago going for a walk for 2 Miles and feeling zapped. I can see in my heart rate the improvement as well. Going up a steep hill yesterday it was 130 bpm…
  • Lovely opening post. I suffer from depression and anxiety and I ended up injuring my ankle so badly I couldn't even walk and my mental health nose dived. I ended up with diagnosed CFS and Fibromyalgia. I remember literally having to crawl over my bedroom floor, wait 5 minutes and then climb into bed. As my ankle got better…
  • 3x yes today 1 pass day Things nearly went downhill. I took my daughter to dunkin donuts. She has been wanting to go for months so I ended up having a couple of donuts. I managed to get back on track with an hour on zwift and taking my dogs for a walk. Used the few spare calories I had left on protein powder :-)
  • 3x yes. 1 pass day I had a good day today. I ended up walking for an hour and then having another hour on Zwift later which meant I had loads of calories in the budget.

Spending time with my kids Spending time with God in prayer - ideally outside in nature Reading the bible. Listening to music Reading a book on walking routes Planning a walk in OS maps I heard some great advice the other day from a…
