Fitness Thread 2018/19
I went back a few pages and couldn't see a thread for 2018 (maybe we don't need one!).

Im guessing there are people starting or in the process of their marathon training and people going to start in the gyms in Jan - this used to be a good site to get some good advice so lets see if this thread lasts!

Been off the booze and back in the gym for a month. First Crossfit session this morning at 5.30am. Its a killer but what I don't understand is why all the amateur crossfit people are so out of condition?

Aim is to get fit enough to do one last season of Saturday football next season before my 40th.

tle - I never stretch pre run (muscles are cold) pretty much straight out of bed, kit on and out the door. I do a bit post run though ( muscles are warmed) but not as much as
I should. I’m 52 and have managed to stay injury free with the exception of a
bout of plantar fasciitis a couple years back - podiatrist told me that if there’s one stretch that’s vital for a runner it’s calf stretching to avoid PF. So I get you on the calf stretches but not necessarily the timing of them

For anyone. Whenever I have calf injuries it's normally early runs that do it.

Re: Fitness Thread 2018/19
If you are going to exercise straight after waking up make sure your muscles are stretched and warmed up.
This aplies especially if you are running as you are more likely to pull or tear a muscle especially your calves.

I guess I should get I to the spirit

I’m training for London Marathon which will be my 5th marathon. Early mornings for me as well, get up and get it done, although in the new year there’ll be a few double days to get the mileage up

Do my exercise in the morning too. I get up at 6am, out of the door around 6.20 back around 7am to get ready for work. Miles easier than doing it after work but it is harder to do it now when it is dark. In the summer I was doing it over the park and it was lovely.

Re: Fitness Thread 2018/19
Early morning makes allot of sense.

By the end of the day, there are so many things that could have happened which you could use as an excuse for sacking the gym off.

If you get up at 5am and you've got that hour then your only excuse is usually laziness.

Great idea to start off in the morning if you lack motivation.

Re: Fitness Thread 2018/19
Been going gym at 5am 4 times a week lately.

Sounds ridiculous at first but it makes a lot of sense. Much less busy, keeps your evenings free, and all you've really gotta do is go to bed an hour earlier.

Also wakes you right up so while all your coworkers are still yawning you've already gone and done something with your morning and full of energy.

If you've got a 24hr gym anywhere near you, it's really worth a try.

Done some gym work in the past but the only thing that worked for me was running.

Not for everyone and you still have to sort your diet out as eating like a pig won't work whatever exercise you do.

Currently in pre-training for Geneva Marathon in May 2019. 6 days a week plus Cross Country racing until the new year then back onto the road for the proper training phase.
