they were really fucked after I did my one and only ultra but recovered now.

I'm either really lucky with my knees or I'm due two knee replacements in the next few years.

I do look after my knees though. do loads of yoga and get through a ridiculous number of running shoes a year

1. 72kg
2. 72kg
3. Brisk-ish walk most days of the week - between 15 and 45 mins.
4. Balanced/Normal - no fad diets, no cutting out food groups. I rarely snack. Three decent meals a day. And the odd takeaway.

1. Don't know.
2. A bit less but the number is irrelevant
3. Typical week: 3 x weights, 2 x HIIT cardio, abs and flexibility work, a few hours cycling (7.5 this week, for example).
4. I don't diet. But I do eat pretty clean 95% of the time. Virtually no sugar or artificial sweeteners but no fad nonsense.

1. 71.3 kgs
2. Same, more or less. I don't sweat anything in the 70-73 range.
3. See http://www.gymnasticbodies.com - not exactly this, but similar - calisthenics training for a combination of flexibility, mobility and strength - 2x or 3x a week
4. Clean-ish. No strict dieting but I naturally drink very little booze. Have cut down a lot of sugar in the last few months but still something of a sweet tooth. Cut out a lot of empty carbs. Have cheat days at least once a week.

Hard cardio is the trick. Most people either stick to weights or do easy cardio. If you can do proper cardio regularly everything else is easy.

And of course eat properly and drink sparingly.

U dun.

fine which what I am, if I gain some *shrug* but don't think lighter suits my face.
yoga 3-4 times and run 15-20k weekly
I eat pretty healthy these days, but still need a regular choc fix. Am in process of switching to nakd bars (orange cocoa) to try to eliminate the choc.

Trombo, that would just end in you trashed in some upmarket Thai place whilst Darce looked on in pity/horror.

I haven't a scooby what weight I am but I'm happy with it regardless.

Two hours a day in gym am and pm most days with rest Sunday.
Mainly Les Mils Grit classes, HIIT and weights and core with some boxing.

Food is relatively healthy 90% of the time and low fat anyway cos of the MS diet I try to stick to.

Healthier now than I was 10 years ago. Angelic face.

Run 20k a week most weeks and just added a yoga class. Eat healthily 99 per cent of the time; never eat chocolate nor crisps but like nuts. Size 10, five six, not sure what I weigh. More of a strong build than thin.

So is the stress of my job so it acts as a counterbalance.

It's not two hours straight. An hour am then an hour pm. Fridays and weekends excepted. Then I do an hour Friday am and today I did 90 mins with a PT mate of mine.

I tend to avoid bread and going mental with the carbs. Lots of meat and greens/veg/beans. Quite a lot of the time I skip breakfast. Don't eat a huge amount of sugar or chocolate, few squares of chocolate perhaps. Couple of glasses of red through the week and espresso in the mornings.

Heavy weight sessions twice a week. Sometimes a third if there's time. Own equipment.

I'm not going running like a mentalist for miles and miles if I don't have to or handing over cash to a PT. It's mostly the food you eat not the crazy cardio workouts. It's not necessary IMHO.

1. 10 stone 7
2. 9 stone 4 - my pre-Preg weight. Have lost 3 stone 4lbs in just under 15 weeks.
Hoping to shift the last 15lbs by end of April but this Is probably wishful thinking.
3. Walking 3-6 miles a day. I can't do structured exercise for another 11 weeks. Generally being a new mama
And keeping house etc
4. Normal stuff I ate pre-nob, pretty healthy but lots of meat and dairy for the milk
And probably more cake and choc than I would normally have but am feeding a lot
And nob is a big lad

And as encouragement for Rofers you might get to be as strong as this person if you keep it up http://m.nzherald.co.nz/sport/news/article.cfm?c_id=4&objectid=11821399

Do walk.A recent study of tribesmen - I forget which - found they walked for 6 hours a day and that was a key reason they were so healthy. Perhaps we all need walking or standing desks.

See the if i ever even once, never mind repeatedly, refer to myself as a "new mama" (re the Russian adoptees)? Please would someone make chitlings from my intestines?

The adoptees will probably know how.

Spaseeba.

Am beginning to feel like i should start doing weights. They do say 35 is the time to use it or lose it, musclewise.

Pathos.

I tend to go in bursts of exercise followed by bursts or slacking off, clergz. I tolerate my slacker periods provided they don't involve rebloating by more than a few pounds. Currently I'm in a lazy phase.
