Hi Everyone! :hi:

New Hive, exciting!

I would like to exercise 4 times a day for the next few days. Go for a short and slow jog, do some quick stretching, go for a bike ride and do some basic srength training.
On top of that it would be nice to pay attention to my diet and to loose a bit of weight.

Have a great day Bees!:fantastic:

I decided shortly after my original post that I would like to subscribe to Zwift (which is an online game for at home cyclists).

If you don't mind, I will turn this thread into my Zwift journey blog.

First day of Zwift today.
I bought a Zwift Hub smart trainer. Setup was easy, I did not manage to connect it to my phone for whatever reason, but I easily connected it to my laptop, which as it turns out is even better.

You can do 8+ different things on Zwift (race, workout, follow a training plan, free ride, group ride, follow a pace partner (ro-)bot, ride "erg" mode or what I did: "ride routes"). I decided that I would like to ride all of the routes in the game. So I did ride 6 different routes (these are official routes) 2 of them are basically the same route as 2 others just backwards, but anyway I did 52.4 km (or 32.5 miles) in total. which was enough to earn me 2 levels (I am level 3 now). According to Zwift I have burned 950 kcal, and rode for almost 2 hours. I think that is a nice start.

Plan for tomorrow:
Length: 29.5 km (18.3 miles)
Elevation: 682 m

I am trying to follow this plan:
but I still need to understand the nuances.

My current estimated FTP is 137 (I didn't do any kind of tests) and my Watt/kg is usually around 1.8.

A very good start, I am very happy. :fantastic:

Zwift is fun, I highly recommend it.

Day two of Zwift.

I overdid it a little bit. I did 85,1 km / 52,8 mi today. I had to abort my last 15 minutes that I wanted to do (last 7-8 km), because I started feeling sick.
I rode for 3,5 hours in total today. My gu-estimated FTP increased by a couple of points too.
I started using chamois creme, which helped a lot.
A total of 137,5 km and almost 6 hour in 2 days... that might be a little bit too much.:dizzy: (I promised myself to never do more than 60 km / 37.2 mi a day).

Although, for sure I ate less calories than I burned, I still managed to gain weight (I guess mostly water), today at dinner I really craved gherkins and not just that, but the fluid the gherkins are "swimming" in (which is mostly just salt and vinegar water). I guess I have sweated so much, that my body wants extra salt... I need to buy some electrolytes, apparently.

My plan for tomorrow is 3 short routes for 35 km or 21,7 mi in total. I hope that is enough of a recovery.

The day after that is a 65 km / 40 mi planned. :ready:

A lot of fun so far!

It is surprising to me that it is only Day 3 on Zwift, it feels like much more.
44.3 km / 27.5 mi done in 90 min today. 181.8 km / 112.9 mi in total.
My Femoral Nerve is slightly inflamed, so I am not going to push 100 km / 62 mi days anytime soon.
My gu-estimated FTP increased again (it is now 161, the first day it was 137)
I will try to do a minimum of 41 km / 25.4 mi tomorrow. The original plan was 65 km / 40 mi. But if I have the legs I will try to do 71 km/44.1 mi, we will see.

16.11.22.jpgSorry for neglecting this thread!

I have been Zwifting every day. In average for 60 kms (37,2 miles), my body is starting to get used to it. I hit my strength plateau, so I started doing Zwift workouts to work on technique, endurance and strength. I am not particularly fond of the workouts yet, but I learn a ton.

I usually try to do a route badge hunt (ride a route I have never ridden before from start to finish), a 1 hour group ride and a workout each day. So far it is really entertaining. I usually watch an old TV show during my workouts, but my group rides and route explorations are challenging and interesting enough that Zwift has my full attention.

When I started, I couldn't do a ride that was longer than 40 minutes, now I m doing a 60 minute ride without any issues almost every day. Great progress. I am loving it.

I decided that Zwift is nice and fine, but it is time to work on some other stuff as well, so I will try to do some running and some strength training too from now on. I would love to incorporate some swimming, but alas, there are no public swimming pools in my vicinity.

I wish you the best of day Bees! :hi:

12.04.2023 - 2.jpgI would like to thank you all! Thanks to You I had an incredibly productive day. I usually do 2 or 3 of my activities a day, but I almost never manage to do everything I would like to do! The only reason for that are You, thanks again!

:v: 8+ minutes of Yoga (12 static stretches)

:v: Strength training. - It took me 53 mins today, to do everything on my list. It would be nice to reduce it to 36 mins.
:v: Run 7.8 km / 4.8 miles. - It took me 39min 45sec today. I am trying to keep it under 40 min. 36min would be the goal.
:v: Ride my bike for 26km / 16 miles it took me 70 mins.
:v: Loose some weight.
I started dieting the day before yesterday. I already lost some water weight, and I guess my gut is not as full as usual, (it is 83kg / 183 lbs, down from 84,5 / 186 lbs). :fantastic:
I don't feel hungry at all... yet.

  • Weigh myself :v:
  • Eat healthy foods :v:
  • Log my calorie intake. :v:
  • -2200 kcal. :v:


:v: 8+ hours of sleep yesterday!

That's an impressive hike!
Thanks! When I am out of shape, and, or overweight, I like to go on small hikes (forced marches really). 50km is my max, I can't walk properly the day after that, if I "hike" any more.
I had a full day of rest the day before, so no big deal.

17.04.2023 - 2.jpgGreat day overall, crushed all my goals. I wasn't sure if I am going to be able to walk properly, as it turns out, no problem. :D
But my small, stabilizing leg muscles hurt a lot from yesterdays hike. I need to do a lot more stretching. :(

Long Term Goals:
  1. BMI down from 25.5 to 22.
    • Which is almost the same as saying: My waist to hip ratio (circumference) should be 0.8 or 0.9 not 1.1 :p
  2. My Resting Heart Rate is around 47, it should go down to 42 (as it used to be, only 2 years ago)
  3. My estimated VO2max is around 52, it should be 56 (as it used to be, only 2 years ago)
  4. I have never been stronger, so in this regard, just keep improving. ...Dunno... benching 50kg for 20 reps sounds cool.

Have a great day Bees! :perfect: :coffee:

P.s. I messed up my "bloodsugar system" by not eating yesterday. Woke up lightheaded, drowsy and sleepy. So I skipped my morning run. Ate a lot of carbs and had to do all my workouts after work, with minimal rest in between.
Who would have thought this might happen?

21.04.2023.jpgHi Bees!

Friday
:v: Cardio 1 (42 min run)
:v: Stretching (11+ min)
:x: Resistance Training
:x: Cardio 2
:v: +/- 0 kcal

I fell asleep after work and slept through the afternoon. I ate something and then fell asleep again. I had slightly elevated temperature the day after and slept even more... I am guessing I've reached my physical limit.

Saturday -Rest Day
:v: 16km hike
:v: +/- 0 kcal

Sunday - Rest Day
:v: 15 km hike
:v: +/- 0 kcal

I am a little bit disappointed. No weight loss whatsoever so far. I started eating a ton of salt, so I am guessing I gained some water weight, but either way, apparently a high workout regiment doesn't seem to work for me.

So I've decided to go back to my old vegan diet (I used to be a vegetarian for almost 15 years, and a vegan for almost a year). Cut all milk and eggs and similar out of my diet and eat the occasional piece of lean meat once a week or so, and increase my fiber intake in general.

Have a great day Bees! :perfect: :coffee:

24.04.2023.jpgDay 1

:v: Cardio 1 (42 min run)
:v: Resistance Training (52 min)
:v: Cardio 2 (93 min biking, not the usual 26km / 16 miles, but 34km/21m)
:v: Stretching (7+ min)
:v:-2800 kcal

I ate a HUGE salad (it took me literally over an hour to chew my way through it), a ton of fruits, vegetables (cooked and prepared) and even some nuts. And after adding it all up, it has almost no calories... weird.
I am guessing I made an error in my calculations... or two. :fantastic:

daily zen.jpgHi Bees!

I tried out 3 different diets, I tried to hike a lot, exercise a lot, fast, intermittent fast etc. nothing helped. My weight stayed (pretty much) the same.
Oh well..., it is good to know that my body wants to maintain my weight, no matter what. :-D

I gave myself 2 days to eat whatever I wanted (I still ate healthy foods, just a little bit to much) and now I am back to my starting weight. So let's start this again.

Day 1

Exercises:
:v: Cardio 1 (42 min run 8km/5mi)
:v: Stretching (8+ min)
:v: Resistance Training (Strength Training, 52 min)
:v: Cardio 2 (Cycling 13km/8mi 38min)
:x: +/- 0 kcal

Foods:
:v: Breakfast - Oatmeal with fruits
:v: Dinner - 2x Homemade sandwiches with lots of vegetables
:v: Lunch - vegetables with rice.

Have a great day Bees! :perfect: :coffee:

Sorry for not posting. I feel an obligation to read your checking in threads if I post and I didn't have the time/patience to do so for the last few months.

I didn't loose weight at all, I stopped dieting, I am doing my exercises ... occasionally, I've lost a little bit of overall strength and speed. C'est la vie. :sus::sad:

Let's start this again.

Exercises:

:v: Cardio 1 (44 min run 8km/5mi)
:v: Stretching (5+ min)
:v: Resistance Training (Strength Training, 12 min)
:v: Cardio 2 (Cycling 65min 26km/16mi )

Nutrition:
:x: Abysmal, but I have no more junk food left. Tomorrow I'll have to eat healthy stuff. :happy:

Have a great day Bees! :perfect:

img_207569_thomasedison.jpgI managed to pull my calf muscle a couple days ago while running. I figured if I am careful, I can still go running and cycling, which was a bad idea, I managed to pull my calf muscle again at the exact same spot yesterday, pretty badly. So this means at least one week of complete rest.

:v: Cardio (running)
:v: Stretching (8+ min)
:v: Resistance Training (Strength Training, 52 min)
:x: Cycling (nursing injury 0/7)

I started eating less and eating healthy foods. Let's hope I can stick to it.

Have a great day Bees!:perfect:

:v: Dieting. I've already lost a 1kg, I'm guessing that is only water weight /stomach content, but still it goes the right direction.

I'm walking around like a "crab", taking a big step with my healthy leg and slowly moving the injured leg forward, which is slightly turned sideways... it looks goofy and funny. I just can't help it, that is the fastest way to move for me right now. :chuckle: I also have so much extra energy, I cleaned the kitchen cabinets today (inside and outside), maybe I'll clean the fridge tomorrow.

03.09.23.jpgThank you @Tileenah, @Mamatigerj :happy:

I had a complete rest day yesterday. My leg is much better, I don't have to walk "like a crab" anymore, I just have a slight limp.
I tried to do a few deep stretches, just to see how my leg is doing and *boing* I felt it "snap" again, so I am guessing I can't go for a run for 3 more weeks or so. :(

On the other hand, I nailed my diet, I already lost 2 kg (I am sure most of it is water weight and stomach content, but still).

More healing vibes for your leg :vibes:

I get wanting to test a wounded body part but just don't. Just let it rest for a while, maybe do some very light low impact exercises.

08.09.23.jpgI am still nursing my pulled calf muscle. I was hoping that I can go on a run or bike ride soon, but sadly it is not going to happen. I went on 1-2km walks the last few days and felt fine, I went on a 7km walk yesterday and it started hurting pretty badly after 5km, so I think I need to wait the "full" 6 weeks until I can go on a run.
I talked to a few smart people and they told me I overtrained (I did too much running & cycling and to make things worse I gained weight). Their suggestion was, that I should do more upper body stuff.

So new plan, full body strength training every day or every second day. Occasionally I'll do a run or a bike ride here and there. And I am constantly craving protein rich foods (meat, eggs and legumes) so I'll need to adjust my diet.

I started to look into strength training plans, maybe I need to adjust something in my routine, increase the volume, decrease the volume, add new exercises etc., but after toying around a bit for a few days, I pretty much ended up at my old and trusted plan, so I'll probably won't change a thing.

See you later today! :ready:

:v: 2x5km walk

I skipped the bike ride, I don't think it would help.
Today
:v: 2x5 km walk

It's day 9 since my injury (well, I pulled the muscle a couple days before that too and after that too, so who knows...), it starts to hurt after 5 km. It swells, gets enflamed, seizes up, but after just a couple minutes of rest it is perfectly fine. I don't have any kind of limp anymore, so... progress.

I talked to a couple smart people and they told me, the best thing I can do for my leg, is a couple walks during the day. Some suggested 3x 2km walks, some said 2 x3km walks...
I really like the idea of 3x5km...., but I better stick to 2x5km, I think. ;)

I am eating like a pig, I'm eating a lot of eggs (which I usually don't), I guess my body needs them. :eatall:

Plan for the week:
2x5km walk each day, strength training as often as "possible", I'll try to buy and eat some salad. I've heard that it is healthy. :salad:

Have a great day Bees! :perfect:

:v: Monday 2x5 km
:v: Tuesday 2x5 km
:v: Wednesday, I realized that I can do more than 5km without pain so I did 1x10 km
:v: Thursday 1x10 km
:v: Friday 1x15 km
:v: Saturday 1x15 km
:v: Sunday rest day. :) I have a slight DOM in my tensor fasciae latae muscles, so rest day is warranted.

I also did a few bike rides and a little bit of strength training. My leg muscle isn't sore anymore, I can do pretty much everything, except for taking the steps on my toe tips and twisting the muscle inversely. (A movement like putting out a cigarette is very painful, I don't smoke, just an example). I increased my protein intake significantly (lots of meat and some eggs) and I feel much better. I hope, that I should be able to go for a jog soon.

Have a great day Bees! :perfect:

I hope you are doing well.
23.09.23.jpgThank you for asking and being here! :friend:

My apologies for neglecting the thread, but I started to go on really long walks in a nearby forest and I am not checking Darebee from work. It happened to me a couple of times, that I came home from a walk, put some food into the pressure cooker, fell asleep, woke up that the pressure cooker is ready, ate it and fell asleep again.
I guess walking for several hours after/before work makes you tired for some reason. ;)

:v: Monday 15 km
:v: Tuesday 17 km
:v: Wednesday 24.5 km
:v: Thursday 29 km
:v: Friday 15 km
:v: Saturday 29 km
Sunday 15 km is planned, maybe 29 km don't know it yet.

I also had a couple of bike rides, so my overall calorie burn was satisfactory... to say the least. :happy:

-

My leg is 100% recovered... I think, I'll go on my first jog/run on Monday, we will see. If I am lucky, this will be an only 4 week recovery (and not 6 like I feared). I can walk on my toe tips, walk up and down a set of stairs, move my feet inversely etc. everything feels fine.

Eating a lot of meat seems to help my recovery, I am thinking I was lacking an amino acid / protein (I am guessing leucine, even though it doesn't make any sense, so who knows), my recovery is much faster than "usual", it is on par with my recovery from 5+years ago..., when I was eating a lot of meat too... what a coincidence. :LOL:

My plan from now on:
Run before work. (40 mins)
Ride to-and-fro work.
Do a little bit of strength training. (40-ish mins)
Go for a big walk (5+ km, but preferably 15 km) before sleep. I walk with a pace of 7 km/h (that is around 4-4.4 miles / hour), so not very fast. 15 km takes me around 2,3 hours.

I find walks very relaxing and emotionally and mentally stimulating. I don't even listen to a podcast or something, I just listen to some music (which changes from day to day). And of course I sleep like a baby afterwards. :D

A couple of pictures I took:
Some parts of the forest I am walking in are quite dark.
And some "crazy" shrooms. I've seen, among many other type of mushrooms.

Wildlife: A couple people asked me in person, so it might be interesting to some. I have been quite a bit in the forest lately, but I've only seen a couple deer, a couple hedgehogs/rabbits..., but mostly only housecats, on a stroll. :ss:
I almost stepped on a baby snake once, don't know what kind. Seemed harmless and I have been told, they actually are.
Oh, and I see field mice regularly... no wonder the cats like to stroll here.

I'll catch up with your threads on Monday! (I promise!)
Have a great day Bees! :perfect:
