  1. Aye I meant nothing on Netflix. Deadwood amazing though I still think not as good as Breaking Bad or Better Call Saul. In my opinion obviously. For me the only things “as good” would be The Wire and the This is England series. X
  2. The problem with watching Better Call Saul is that it just ruins everything else. Everything else I watch now I’m like “yeah it’s good but it’s not as good as breaking bad or better call Saul”. X
  3. Interesting podcast if anyone has an hour to spare.....
  4. Thunder Road is a fantastic independent tragic comedy. X
  5. Haha done it a few times so you’re not the only one. X
  6. Sounds like you’re a wee bit ahead of me, well done! My best time is bang on 22 minutes. I’m 39 and have jogged periodically in my life but only started doing it regularly and recording times and distances very recently so I’m quite happy with where I am. I think in another life I could’ve been a decent runner as I’ve probably got the build. Just wish I’d started at 15 rather than 35 haha! Good luck with your efforts! The speed work really helps I think as makes “race pace” feel slower and easier. X
  7. I mean it ain’t gonna happen and I’m not even sure it should but this is the type of rumour we’ve been waiting for and if it doesn’t excite you even a little are you even a football fan? Get it done soon Congo, I’m edging at the rumour and want to release. X
  8. Only just got the app, seems good. I’m aiming to get a sub 20 minute 5k but at my age and as someone who only really started running a few years ago it might be hard. Good fun aiming for it though. X
  9. Yeah nothing can really replace a heavy barbell but I’ve been quite enjoying the workouts. Been upping the reps obviously. In fact I did some rucksack deadlifts (probably more like Romanian deadlifts as I found it hard to do full ones without bar) and my hamstrings aching this morning more than when I do heavy barbell deadlifts. I’ve tried to up the reps to a number where my overall volume is pretty much the same. I would say 15 minutes uninterrupted running is pretty good and better than a lot of people. I do 5k max as anything longer I get bored and give up. Trying to get a sub 20 minute 5k but I’m a way off and probably too old to get that quick now but nice to have a target.
  10. I have been running three times a week and doing an at home bodyweight/weighted rucksack workout three times a week (alternating the running and weights). If anyone is interested (I am by no means an expert) this is what I have been doing....... Squats with weighted rucksack (held in front not on back) Weighted Press Ups Bent over rows with Rucksack Chin Ups/Pull ups (these are so good but I cannot find anywhere to do them at home but if you can you really should) Deadlift with rucksack Curls with rucksack Calf Raises 30s Plank (but really tensing the abs as you do it) Then for the running I just go on the days I don't do the workout above and alternate it. One run I do a 5k slowish and the next I will run as many 500m intervals as I can at a faster pace (I usually manage 4) then jog a bit. I fill the rucksack with some kettlebells I have (not that heavy) but you could uses bottles of water, rice, books, anything really. Did some squats whilst holding the 4 month old yesterday which was pretty good. Just doing anything I think is good. You're not gonna get ripped doing that but it hits most the muscles and is a pretty decent workout. X
  11. Yes of course you are right. Doesn't make anything he has said valid though.
