Louis, I went to Halfords to get my bike. £150.00 and it has all kinds of Gucci suspension on it more than enough for my needs. Sometimes the knee's aren't up to a run so I make do with a bike ride, MP3 on, blasting Englebert Humpadink, can't beat it.

A £200 bike 24 gears, suspension, and all the trimmings went for 69 pounds the other day, but its just not bikes its everything. MP3s, music centres DVD recorders. Designer Gear, trainers, jackets. They are not one off items they sell in bulk.

 

All you have to do is ring an 0870 number on the screen and they deliver, usually within 7 days.

 

And its all new stuff not second hand. ...............Well worth looking at.

Nah, cycling is much better for you than running. Running plays havoc with peoples ankles, knees and hips. Cycling is far more enjoyable and less stressful on you!

 

I used to cycle a good amount, however unfortunately with the wee one on the way as well as work commitments, I have let it slip recently.

 

I have a very much loved and well looked after Trek Y3, which cost a bomb when I bought it (I think it was £950 there or there abouts) many years ago. It was worth every penny though...and when I have finished with it, I could hang it on a wall as a piece of art. lol

If you want to get fit mate theres no better cardio workout than punching the stuffing outa a punchbag and it gets rid of all lifes little stresses too!

 

I'm back on the jogging at the moment cos of the unfortunate accident with my punchbag being a tad too heavy for the wall I hung it off, early morning workouts see the most benifit too if you can drag yourself out the pit. I have Z cars on my CD alarm clock which works a treat :D

I had a go on my mums bike today ! It's blue so its alright.. I went up Calday Hill and my legs turned to jelly.. I felt a bit better for it though ;)

 

Dunno Liam.. I might take up boxing.. problem is I used to be skinny size 32 etc. but no im size 40 - since I was made redundant I've had nothing to do so I've just ate and ate and ate.

 

I'm going to try and rectify this asap!

You'd get fitter walking it Zed, i walked that Coast to Coast with a pack on my back, set yourself a target of 20 miles a day.

 

here come the questions

 

did you do it coast to coast?

 

alone?

 

Did you camp each night?

 

How long did it take?

Yeah coast to coast( 207 miles )

 

With the missus. (fit as a fiddle )

 

6 nights wild camping, 3 nights B & Bs (for the bath, bed, and breakfast) one night in Manchester and one night in Doncaster at friends houses.

11 DAYS WALKING ( about 19miles a day) and 2days travelling there and back from Hornsea, YOU CAN DO THE LOT IN TWO WEEKS.

 

Brilliant in early summer, not too hot and some nice people on the same travel itenary. A great night out is had in Doncaster.

My legs are too fat at the moment for all that, I walked 6miles to school once and my leg felt like it had been sanded down by the other.

 

 

Hahaha, I ve started running again recently and got a bit of the old inner thigh chaifing

 

Not nice

My womans Exercise Bike has been channeling me of late. Spooky stuff.

 

It talks to me in whispers, then just stares.

 

I Tell it too fuk off - but it has an indominatable steely glare.

 

It's messing with my head.
