The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Fixed that for ya. ;)

I'm obviously crazy as well since I've taken up the challenge from our beloved SFC to be able to run 21km before Christmas. Madness!

I am so super proud of you, Dom. You continue to be in my thoughts whenever I go running. Your "never quit" spirit is what gets me through a lot of tough stretches.

The first 21K were easy. At 30K, I hit the wall and had to struggle for the rest... but, I finished it.

All that matters is that you finished. Less than 1% of the human population has ever ran a marathon. YOUR THE 1%!!!!!!!

Congrats Dom!, The farthest I have ever "walked" (rolling somewhere in my powerchair haha) in one go was to town, which is 24KMs away for the Childrens Wish Foundation, and that took us 6 and a half hours!, and you ran!, farther then that! Way to go! :)

It's time for a New Year's bump of this thread! :mrgreen:

No. I don't train legs. I don't train abs. And I don't do cardio. Ever. I hate that stuff.


So for the first time in about 14 years I decided to start training my legs again. :shock:

Yesterday was my re-introduction. It wasn't much; four excersises. Leg extensions, hack squats (starting with no weight and going up to only 50 pounds... I used to do over 300 on this exercise back in the day), leg curls and finally seated calf raises.

Today my legs hurt, but fortunately I'm wise enough to not have overdone it... I would not have been able to walk otherwise. :lol:

I also managed to put on over five pounds over what I like to call "Junk season." Junk season starts around mid October just after Thanksgiving for us Canucks (when stores are brimming with candy for Halloween and you can't help but buy some just for yourself), and ends around January. There seems to be a never ending supply of chocolate and sweets in between (not to mention a bunch of big killer meals).

5 pounds may not seem like a lot however on my small frame it looks like it is. Normally I would not have indulged so much over the holiday season, however it seemed to be all around me at every turn (not to mention I didn't go to the gym once in December :oops: ).

So I'm back at it now! And yesterday I thought that instead of driving around aimlessly to my usual haunts killing my afternoon, I would do something productive and go to the damn gym! :lol: I trained chest and arms on Saturday, so legs it had to be.

Over the holidays I was actually looking at some old pictures of myself (we're talking the early 90s) and was astonished at just how big my legs used to be--- funny thing was that I thought they were small back then.

So I figure I can incorporate one leg workout per week into my routine. That will get my ass to the gym at least four times a week.

Friends don't let friends skip leg days...

http://www.failhero.com/wp-content/uplo ... 098226.jpg

I'm still running, albeit very infrequently. I've just got some new running shoes so I see it becoming a more regular thing, especially as the weather improves (I don't have a gym membership so all my running is outside).

I'm also going to lose some more weight though I'm not actively dieting right now. In fact, before Christmas I got down to my lowest weight for a long time but the temptation of chocolate was too much. ;) It's not my actual weight that bothers me, it is only a number after all, but the flabby bits. I could do all the sit ups in the world but that won't get rid of the spare tire around my middle. Now I'm being more aware of the type of foods I'm eating but if I want chocolate I'm going to have it without feeling guilty. Moderation is the key.

Just did day one of the couch-to-5k program. I'm nowhere near Dom's marathon levels, but I've gotta start somewhere! I didn't have to push that hard, which I was surprised about, but I've never been much of a runner so I'm not willing to skip the first week.

There's a 5k here in March I'm hoping to do, depending on if I have the money for registration, or I might grab some friends who are also doing the program and create our own 5k around town.

Well, yeah... you're nowhere near at my marathon levels, but I started exactly as you did TWO years ago, so give it time. C25K is a 9 week training course, so, stay on target if you hope to compete in March. Your target speed should be 10 KMH (6.2 MPH) Keep us posted of your results here, OK?

Good luck. :delta:
