Nike+ FuelBand & Trion:Z Wristband

Some packages arrived today! The first package to arrive was my new Trion:Z wristband.  If you have read my previous ramblings, you’ll know that I was sent one of these back in 2011 for free to review (http://thevirtualrunner.org/2011/04/29/trionz/) and I wore it until it was loose and falling apart. I decided to buy my own […]

Light as a Feather

I may have mentioned before, but I am a member of a few Intermittent Fasting (IF) groups on Facebook.  Mainly as a support sort of thing but also to see how this lifestyle works for others. There are a few things which occur in all the groups which really annoy me: People saying they can’t […]

Forty Percent Fat

Yeah, that’s right.  I’m currently a fatty.  I got some new scales today that tell you your weight, % body fat, BMI and % water.  Man, it makes for some depressing reading… Obviously, I already knew I was overweight but I don’t think I look overweight.  Now I know how badly and it gives me […]

That was FAST

After many months of lethargy and being severely overweight I’ve decided to try something completely new.  Well, it’s new to me but the concept has been around for some time. I’m sure may of you have heard of “The Fast Diet” or the 5/2 diet whereby you eat normally for five days a week but […]

Lull in the Fitness Storm

Things are going absolutely fantastic with my current fitness drive and I’m really glad to be running again. Eating and running I really don’t know what happened before and why I just end up going for weeks and weeks without doing anything other than stuffing my face with food.  I think that one of the […]

The “J” Word

“J” is for jump, juggle, jiggle, juniper, jelly, jack….and Janathon.  If you haven’t heard of it then where have you been?  You’ve got Google don’t you?  Type it in and see what comes up. Anyway, I’ve decided to give it a go again this year, however after my dedication and hard work last January I’ve […]

Regain some of the fitness I’ve […]

The Thighs Have It

Okay, okay… let’s get it over with… start the public flogging. The heading of this blog refers to my growing appendages caused by overeating.  I think I saw smoke trailing behind me this morning caused by the friction of my thighs rubbing together while I was running. I know I haven’t blogged in some time […]

Full of Crap

I didn’t do the marathon.  I know, I know… I put in all that training! Everything was going well and we flew to Canada as planned.  However, the second or third day there I started sneezing a lot and I thought it was just allergies (my sisters have pets).  Nope.  Full blown cold kicked in […]

DOMS and a Lesson Learned

Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness is what I’ve got, and I’ve got it bad. My third attempt of the Reading Half Marathon certainly wasn’t my best.  I had a good first half and at the 10k mark my time seemed pretty good and I was at about the 58min mark.  However, the whole second half was […]
