    Agh that’s good to know haha

    Was just curious as it’s proper dripping down the face constant eye sting if you don’t wipe it so just didn’t know what the approach was as some don’t sweat but then people like me it can be very excessive!

    I guess asking the pti for a wipe down would be a silly move *text deleted*

    This is what I thought at first too, way back in September. However due to resting my shins and doing very little running for 1.5years and that not having fixed them the specialist I saw said I needed to 'experiment' and run until I got a 5/10 pain and stop (this was way back in October time I think, and was when the 2 minute runs started).

    After numerous set backs (own fault pushing too hard) currently at 35 mins (but slow) running with accompanying shin pain ranging from 4-6/10. I did get to a stage a few months ago where I could do 40 mins with no pain at all but then pushed too much and ruined my progress.

    Hopefully this month will just be building up to those 3 x 3 mile runs, like this week I am only doing 2 35 - 40 minute runs. Will create a new thread

    Just finished the 2nd 3x 1600m this week bit gutted as I didn’t time the 1st set today and the first 2/4 laps of the 400m really did feel like I shifted and shot my wod to soon so wouldn’t been interesting to see what the time was next 2 sets were just in the 10min rage.

    I feel great going to test the 2x 1.5 mile on Monday just for distance see how I manage that.

    Approaching the 'big six-oh' it is both depressing and inspiring reading this thread. :)

    After smashing the intense circuits earlier in the week it was back to a strength building session today.

    Supersets x5:

    - 15 Jump Squats
    - 15 Decline Press-Ups (slow down fast up)

    - 20 Back Squats @40kg (plus whatever my cheap bar weighs)
    - 10 Pull-Ups

    - 6 OHP @40kg
    - 16 Jumping Lunges (8 /leg)

    Then as a Finisher, 3x:

    - 12 Jump Squats
    - 20 Press-Ups
    - 1 Minute Plank


    Some science behind the progression from Jump Squats to Weighted Squats to Jumping Lunges (or lunges in general).
    Ross Edgley talks about how the ideal strength session should follow the sequence of:

    1) Plyometrics (explosive) to prime the muscle fibres for power and explosivity.

    2) Compound. The big 'meat' of the session. The squats, deadlifts, whatever.

    3) Unilateral. In this case the lunges (which I made plyometric again). This is specific movements that isolate muscles. See also pistol squats, or upper body it could be single dumbbell shoulder press for example.

    Then in my Finisher I included some jumps again because, again Ross Edgley, talks about getting a good lactic finisher. Could be a mini circuit like above or could be sets of bastards or bear crawls. Basically just tells your body to go mad and recover hard once you feed it.

    10x 30sec dead hangs
    5x 4 resistance band pullups


    The band I’m using is very difficult (thick) so doesn’t stretch to much so trying to get in it is a nightmare!

    From next week on going to make back workouts a priority and do them as frequent as possible as I really need to get this sorted (pullups that is).

    Going out on a long run today, keeping it intuitive so maybe 10 miles maybe half marathon, just depends how it feels at about the 8 mile point.
