    A bit under 12% here, which is pretty much as expected from eyeballing it. Might see if I can drop to 10%

    I have no idea how low I've gone as I wasn't using machines to check at the time. At race weight I was 58kg at 176cm.

    I hit the heady heights of 115kgs, although I was hooker at club level.

    I am NOT talking about rugby.

    Sick. Where can I try one of these machines?

    My gym doesn't even have flushing toilets, just buckets and heavy rocks.

    Yeah, I'm never going back there again. Current plan is to aim for about 64kg with a decent chunk more muscle / power. Should make me faster on the flats.

    I'm dead on 16 stone at 6ft3, probably just over 15% body fat.

    Anyone else looking forward to the sweat crawl coming soon?

    Finally managed to get some swimming in. I was really worried about my shoulder but it didn't hurt too much after. I can't do crawl yet but hopefully I'll be able to build up slow to be able to do that. Had to stick with breast stroke and it took a little time for my shoulder to get used to it. I was also able to do certain arm movements under the water which I just can't do normally.

    Got my PT session at 3pm today and another one booked in for Friday. I do look forward to these but I\m going to be totally fucked afterwards.

    I've booked myself to do a half marathon in October. I'm basically starting from scratch as I've started running, albeit on a treadmill, from the end of June.

    I'm a fat cunt (was 127kg in January and am currently 113kg). I am now running at least 3 times a week doing 5k.

    Am using the Nike Running App to get me ready. It's very good.

    @Jono62

    That's a tough ask but doable if you pack in the miles and crosstrain.

    Just watch out for injuries from ramping the training up, rest adequately at the first sign of any niggles

    @Jono62 make sure you stretch as well, your ITB is ripe for giving you hell if you don't where you are ramping up so fast. It's a nightmare if you aggravate it as well and it will bugger up your progress.

    Cheers all for the tips. I did start slowly and have started ramping it up recently. It was a bit of a shock to start. The nike app has recommended a good schedule to get me race ready.

    @Jono62 - don't listen to these old quacks. Fuckin gun it as soon as you leave the house. Shock the body into warming up.

    Right, week 4 of going the gym twice a week and focusing on upper body. 5x 10 reps of whatever the fuck I can handle doing 50 of. Making some improvements week on week so far.

    Need to build s third session in, but it's fucking tough with a family.

    Here's the thing though - I'm ravenous all the time. I was scrawny, but not particularly pudgy; I've developed a proper gut because I'm eating way more.

    So I figure I probably need to add cardio in, and eat better. Fucking complicated, I just wanna get hench.
