    Absolutely fucking empty in my gym... frighteningly so. I guess all the regulars were wary of the resolutioners?

    I agreed to let my trainer use my photos for a poster, thinking I’d be one of say a dozen clients. Nope just me and a girl. The posters are up all over the gym, which is across the road from my office. Getting no end of piss taking about it :’D

    After my holiday in August last year, I lapsed into eating like crap and doing no exercise. Back on GZCLP at 6am yesterday morning. Hoping to keep going with this. In pain today though...

    I've gained about 4 kilos of christmas podge, which is not surprising but is annoying. 92.8kg on the scales this morning. Is anyone else fat now?
    Christmas was a 9 pounder / 4kg for me as well! First weigh in was last Friday, I thought maybe 4 or 5 pounds.... stood staring at the scales for about a minute and hopped on and off a couple of times as well just to be sure :D Brutal really, worked hard last quarter of last year to shed a stone only to put 2/3rds back on Xmas.

    Back on the diet this week, 3 or 4 x 800cal "fast" days a week with intermittent fasting. Eat healthy on the other days. Worked for me last year, hope I can stick to it again.

    Go to a decent running shop and have them get you fitted for something appropriate, everyone’s gait is different and there’s no one shoe that’s good for everyone

    @beastmaster
    Whichever feel the best on your feet.
    Seriously, go to a proper runner store and have them measure/film/analyse your feet to know which type of shoe you need, e.g. (over)pronation/supination/normal.
    Then select a bunch that match the type (ignore color) and do some running in the store.

    edit: Like elstoof typed but faster than me

    Out of all the various running shoes I've tried over the years, Brooks Ghost have been the most comfortable by a wide margin. But like everyone else has said, go to a specialist shop.

    I will say this - I do not believe the custom made molded insoles are worth it. They did fuck all for me. I switched them back out for the ones that came with the trainers. They will probably try and sell you some. By all means give them a go but I personally felt no benefit.

    Any kind of custom orthotic insert is pretty much quackery. Avoid

    Definitely not the case for cycling. Can't speak for running... because fuck that as a concept frankly.

    Cycling barely uses the foot so you can get away with shimming things up if it helps keep the knee tracking in proper alignment, but you have to be very careful about correcting the issue properly. Running uses the entire foot structure and puts it under incredible stress, get those inserts wrong and you’ll fuck yourself up in no time at all
