I like both of these things but I don't have much to add.

How often do people change their gym programs?

I don't work off a set program but when I used to I would change when I got bore of it or I stopped seeing reasonable improvements

Been gyming with a good leg routine the last few 2 months to see if I can get my knee sorted and maybe start running again, went out tonight for a 5k to see if there was any improvement and ended up running my fastest recorded 15k, delighted.
It's definitely sore now but I couldn't run more than 5k on it 6-7 months ago without it absolutely aching. Kicking myself for not mixing in exercises before.

Entered a 10k this Friday night. No idea what the course is like other than it finishes with a couple of laps of an athletics track.

I've not done any running in ages, but I'm going to use it as a gauge and if I hit certain times I'm gonna enter Belfast half Marathon in September and/or Dublin Marathon in October

Started at gym work about 6 months ago...before that it was all team sports and running. The weights work has been great. I'm definitely fitter for rugby and I've a half marathon on Sunday to see how my running is coming along.

Just did my last 20 mile run before the Derry Marathon.....took it at a fairly easy pace, ran it in 2:58 but was going a bit faster for the last 5 miles. Think I might target staying with the 3:30 pacers as long as I can, and if I finish under 3:45 I'll be very happy.

I cracked or bruised a rib last week and I haven't been able to lift weights since then :(

I tried to go back on Friday and I'm worried I reopened it. So frustrating

Its a pretty nice run too if anyone's thinking about it. Flat and scenic. I did the full there a few years back and enjoyed it - first half was definitely the best part

Haven't lifted heavy since February because I wanted to get my weight below 92kg and avoid ending up in the open weight class in Grappling/BJJ competitions.

Want to start doing a bit more again but the gym I used for lifting is awkward to get to since I've moved.


Was it Mexicola who squatted double his weight recently?
