    How tall are you?

    When I feel fat I imagine an extra stone in terms of 28 tubs of lard I could do without.

    It helps!

    Haha positively scrawny. My fighting fit super trim weight is about 11 Stone 7. Using my best interviewee technique, my biggest weakness is my upper body strength

    Snap, on the biggest weakness front and good luck with your run next week.

    At the back end of last year I was hovering around 12 to 12 1/2 stones feeling heavy for 5'10" . However with 2 months of mainly niggle free running, cycling and walking I find my self dead on 11 stone, which feels good.

    I have continued to eat what I want, including far too much bread, but the pub being shut has obviously helped!

    My concern is that all the good work might be lost following my surgery next week but hopefully the turbo will keep me ticking over. I don't have Zwift or anything like that so I might put a photograph of Graham's 28 tubs of lard on the wall to keep me at it!

    I'm in the Mike T scrawny category. 5'9" and ten stone.

    Having said that, I still have to lose a few pounds every year to shed my winter padding. My normal approach is a mixture of more training and no-carb lunches. I find I can lose pounds a week this way.

    Blimey I have to say that my younger daughter, who is a super duper fit elite CrossFit coach probably weighs more than most of you lot. In my defence I also work out at the gym (but haven’t been able to since maybe lockdown 2 - I’ve lost track to be honest). Working on all round fitness and upper body strength doesn’t make for a slick fell running machine I guess and sometimes running into a head wind I feel like I’m running with a parachute deployed. That’s my excuse anyway
