Recent advice

“I did it! I started in June of 2013 when I joined the YWCA along with TS. I had a full physical and worked getting my body fit and healthy. One year later and my yearly physical was proof that everything is great. My goal was to be at 200 pounds by this June. I weigh 195 pounds. I dropped 12 pounds and lowered my cholesterol as planed. ”

Paula K Get fitter than you have ever been this year Challenge

Contributorsilver Paula K Half of this challenge is done, my goals were to enter a running competition, which I did despite a cold I've been battling with this fall. But yeah, I entered a running competition in the end of August - Midnight run, 10K here in Helsinki - and I finished it with 1:06:04! I hadn't ever even ran that long of a distance before... I was so happy and yes, very proud, but after that I got really sick, so the good shape I had, is so gone... Now that I'm well again it's kind of a start-over. There is no competition (that I know of) I'm training for, but as I started this challenge in the beginning of January, there is still time to lose these extra 5 kilos and be able to run the 10K to be fitter than I've ever been!

Hana K encouraged this.

Alan S Get fitter than you have ever been this year Challenge

Contributorgold Alan S I'm starting this challenge tomorrow, as I enter my 40s. I've been pondering what measures to use to prove I am fitter. I am happy with my weight, so I will go for performance instead. I am going to (aim to) beat two personal bests for indoor rowing and two for running:

Rowing 2km - 7:25.9; Rowing 5km - 19:46.1; Running 5km - 23:19; Running 10km - ~58:00

Contributorgold Ris S 3 triathlons and a 100 miles cycle ride. None of it would have been achievable this time last year. Trimmed down, toned up and feeling healthier and fitter for it all!!!

Te Aroha C Get fitter than you have ever been this year Challenge

Contributorgold Te Aroha C Like a number of my TS friends, have decided to start this again. Been a rough year since my injury in April, with an on again, off again, approach to training due to highs and lows associated with the pain in my shoulder. My specialist/surgeon and radiologist have pinned me down to being a mystery, which in short means 'we don't know how to proceed from here'. Well this piece of fruit turned a ripened 42 yesterday and is planning to be fitter than she has ever been by her 43rd naming day. :)

I am sorry to hear about your "mystery diagnosis" I too have been off and on for a while now. Been to my primary doctors twice and had gone to an urgent care place two or three times. My primary doctor and bf seem to think my sinuses are really blocked. I have been having better good days then bad days though and before it was like everyday was a bad day, So I do hope what I'm taking now is helping...But if not it's back to the doctors again. Which last time he did ask me if I was worried if it was something serious and I said yes but he said no because of this that and the other thing haha....which my bf has to reassure me all the time :( sending you loads of healing thoughts!!! :)))))

Thanks Amanda. Wishing you all the best on your road to recovery. I'm booked in for another ultrasound and cortisone in my shoulder at the end of the month, then back to the surgeon mid November to see whether it's a case of third time lucky. It's been frustrating as I was well on my way to hitting goals I'd set for myself, but the pain got me down on occasions, I sought comfort food, and gained all weight lost as a result. Spring has sprung this side of the globe however, so ignoring the pain and clambering back on track. :)
