    Getting frustrated now though with not running. Going to the gym - but not really working to hard.
    Want to work a bit harder in the gym, do a max 500m on the rower, then build a session round it, e.g. minimum 5 x 1min @ 80-90% 1 min rest. Can be set up as a custom session on a Concept 2. Aim to keep your pace consistent (i.e. all sets including your last set as close to the pace of the first). To make it harder you can do a number of things: add more sets, reduce rest, increase work period... (e.g. you could do 5 x 500m w/ 1 min rest @ 80-90%)

    I love the rower. If I could afford a Concept 2, I would have one in an instant.

    At the moment, back on the 100 Press Up Challenge (85) and 50 Pull Up Challenge (a disappointing 15.5). Just done 7/7/7/7/11 tonight with 1min rest. Then some core work, ITB-rollering and a few bi-curls.

    Try doing negative pull-ups, get yourself up to the bar however you can and come down really slowly. Works the muscles used in pull-ups. Stick with it and before you know it you'll be doing more than one.

    Was 19 now 14, so still need to lose 2 -3 more. Cant seem to do it tho , been between 13.8 an 14.4 for about 8 months now frustrating, that 2 stone would make such a difference in running and things like pull ups. need to cut out crisps an choc .
    How did u lose the 2 stone? did u try or just came off with excercise?
