Do something every day (dsed)


#101

Back home now, and celebrating with my first Parkrun PB in about a year. 23:37 (unofficial) takes 4 seconds off my previous.

Very happy with that.


#102

Excellent, I pulled the duvet higher instead of heading off to the park run as it was raining , hasn’t stopped all day. Had a bike session in the garage instead. Running tomorrow whatever the weather


#103

And did you?

I had a gentle swim today. Tougher session coming up tomorrow


#104

Just a short 2k in the rain and a session on my exercise bike , weather looks good at the moment so run this morning and I’ll see if I can get access to the velopark track this afternoon with my skates, fingers crossed on that one😊


#105

I do spinning and I walk when I don’t spin. Can I join? How can I record these? Steps? Distance? I don’t run cos I’m still a fat b&st@rd


#106

I may have to get in on this - like @Greenballs however my running is more walking or cross trainer - should I use the run category still for that? Can still record in km I guess


#107

on the odd occasion i only manage a walk i enter it in running , maybe the kind Doc could stick in another column for walking steps?


#108

have you looked at a c25k program , https://www.nhs.uk/live-well/exercise/couch-to-5k-week-by-week/
i used this to get up to 5k and the parkruns


#109

Yeah I was doing it but cos of my knee I stopped. So I now stick to low impact classes like spinning til the weight comes off abs I can run without it jerking on me


#110

sorry to hear that, my low impact is rolling skating , (at my age too) and i get out on my bike as well to add to my running, still need to shed a few pounds too


#111

I would record spinning as cycling distance. I’ve never done it myself, but I presume the bikes give you some feedback as to how far you’ve pedalled?

Just create a row for yourself on the spreadsheet in September, and I’ll make sure it follows through for subsequent months, and onto the summary sheet.


#112

I think additional columns would make the sheet more difficult to navigate. I would just stick walking distance into the Running column.


#113

Yep. Just pop the distance in. You know what you’re doing, and you’re only accountable to yourself. This is just a tool to keep you on track.


#114

Yeah there is a display. Average distance is 16k.
Did a 6k walk this morning I’ll update later.


#115

yes good point, on the days i can’t get out for a run at night i can input a lunchtime walk distance, best to get out of the office or you never get a break.


#116

I’m just logging a walk today. We have our XC Quarter Marathon (10.55km) tomorrow. Knowing the terrain, it’s going to be quite a grind, but at least it’s a guaranteed PB (never done it before)


#117

I have logged cycling on the exercise bike today. Swimming tomorrow , must remember to put the alarm on


#118

18km on spin bike yesterday


#119

Only started logging for the last week but is interesting to see the results!


#120

Double entry today 1km swim this morning and a 4km run this afternoon, and the sun is shining
