  1. Hi Rebels, Restarting after a few years off forums, I've changed my username etc for a true respawn. A bit late to the party thanks to the bushfires. The smoke haze that has settled over my town has brought home how much I need and appreciate exercise for my health and wellbeing. There really is nothing like being able to do nothing fitness related to make you appreciate it. The gym has been closed and it is too hazardous outside. The gym finally reopened and I have been getting back into my fitness routine but I thought some accountability after about a month off (and being basic
  2. Hi, I'm Raptron! One of your friendly neighborhood flipperdoos. I'm in the middle of a hot, hot summer of action, but still trying my best to make time for gymnastics, lifting, friendships, prepping for a road race, bachelorette parties and weddings, non-wedding related travels, etc. Things are going to be a little wild the next few weeks: 7/31 - 8/2: Overnight work retreat 8/2 - 8/5: DC trip with childhood friends 8/9 - 8/11: Tennessee for gymnastics camp 8/17 - 8/19: Cape Cod for 7 mile road race on Sunday 8/31 - 9/2: Bachelorette weekend in Rhode
  3. Disclaimer: I hate running and haven’t run for more than a bus in years! ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- A number of us (it might be 100%!) are sub-optimal in the running department. How about a couch-to-5k to rev the NF crew up? It’s a zero to hero, couch to 5K program, designed as it says to get you from the couch to a 5k run. 9 weeks of terrible dreadful pain and suffering in your time, then it’s over and you can get back to your pint! This is the app that outlines the progra
  4. OK, I did a little better than that, but I still didn't really live up to my own expectations. Howdy, I'm Thrillho. I think I was here last year sometime, maybe the year before, but I am generally over in the Monks' Dojo. I enjoy boxing and MMA, and I've been more focused in slowly reducing my excess weight (down to 255 from 268 so far this year, 238 at my lowest last year and 288 at my highest last year, so... it's a struggle). For this particular challenge, I need to focus more on the strength that my body is lacking. I'm still heavy, but I need to worry less about
  5. Good evening guys, I'm BioGuyJos and this is a very quick draft of how my story here starts... I always wanted to feel faster and lighter with my body, I used to weight around 120 kilograms way back in 2011. I managed to exercise myself starting from summer vacation time in 2011 up to summer vacation time in 2012. I lost around 50 kilograms, weighting 70 kilograms before summer in 2012. In that time I was a high schooler, I felt better with myself and people started to treat me in a different way. It was pretty awesome. I got graduated and I started college. I did not
  6. Whenever I have run over the past 14 years, it is always the same. Severe pain in my shins, my legs get fatigued, but my shins burn really, really badly. I was told of shin splints and that this is common, but for the last 14 years it has been major factor in me always stopping my fitness routine. Any advice or encouragement? Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Please help.
  7. http://rebellion.nerdfitness.com/index.php?/topic/79718-rantings-of-a-mad-man/ ^ Also posted this up here and realized this area is where introductions go. Attention Mods: feel free to remove the above post if you would like, I apologize for my confusion. ^ Hey all, my name is Matt and I am a computer nerd. Phew, glad I got through that. I am out of shape and recently made a solemn vow to my family that I would run a 5k with them this June. I am a procrastinating hobbit who eats way to many snacks and does absolutely nothing to burn it off. I'm not obese, but neither am I "in shape." Since
  8. On runs going for multiple hours, one needs to carry a few items: house key, iPoodle, a little money, and importantly, a snack bar or goo packet. Without getting too graphic (oh go ahead, imagine it), I found out on my half marathon that tucking sharp-edged foil goo packets into one's bra can lead to injury. Unfortunately, most of my running clothes contain no pockets, so perhaps it's time I got a belt. suggestions? Got one you're happy with, or did you find another clever solution to the luggage problem? My mother's expensive bike jerseys always seem to have pockets in them, but I can'
  9. Introduction: My name is Qiyra, I'm a 21-year-old Australian PhD student who wants to be more physically capable. I'm a healthy weight (163cm, 56kg) but have a suspected hereditary heart condition (coronary fistula). Nothing that serious, it just means that my heart gets tired a lot quicker than other people's because one of the little arteries that sends it oxygen to pump isn't connected up properly. So I've gotta toughen the little guy up! MAIN QUEST: Be able to run for 30 minutes without stopping (STA +1) Quest 1: Run 3 times per week. Motivation = increase cardiovascular fitness (main
  10. Ughh So I am turning 25 during this challenge and I am soo dreading it. Not that I think I am doing bad in my life right now I am just WAY far off from what I always thought and dreamed I would be at this age. So I am using this challenge as a way to distract myself. And since running is something that I have pretty much sucked at during my first 25 years of life I would really like to turn things around and actually get good at it for the next 25 years. So that's going to be the focus of my challenge. Main Challenge Goal: 20 minute sustained run Goal #1: Follow Zombies 5k trainer progra
  11. I think I've asked this before, though probably in my long-buried 6-week challenge threads from last year. What's the best way to build up endurance for jogging and future running? This happens intermittently: I say I'll start walking to begin training, but life happens and I end up not walking again for a month or more. Then I have to start all over again. More than once I thought, "well, don't just stroll leisurely, speed walk or try to jog for 30 seconds." And that gave me shin splints and/or a headache. So I suppose I just need to walk more? I feel like it's not enough, because I always
  12. Hi guys This challenge for me (my second, just moved up from recruit!) is about losing as much fat as it is possible to lose in a sustainable manner. I weigh 172lb, and according to my estimations, I should weigh no more than 156. I have made a huge impact in my fitness level by taking up jogging, but I'd like to start branching out, as well as generally doing more. I also have huge issues with coordination, posture, flexibility etc, and if these got improved along the way, it would be a great thing. Last challenge I aimed fairly low, as I wanted to really make sure I would stick with it.
  13. The Zombies are after you, better start running or you are done for. I'm about to get real with you guys... I have been lazy, full of excuses and giving up easily. I have been eating when I am not hungry and going for those bad snacks lately. Water? What is that... Juice all the way. It has made me feel like shit and I am tired of it. It has been affecting me in my horseback riding and my life... it needs to stop. These are my zombies and I am going to outrun them for this challenge. MAIN GOAL FOR THIS CHALLENGE: Lose 10lbs by April 5th Sub quests: > Minimum 15 minutes Zombies, R

    mevre SMASH!

    right. well. last challenge had its ups and downs [as is to be expected] but it ended with a catastrophic down. so i'm dusting myself off and trying again. pictured above is how i plan to deal with this challenge. long-term goal: 19% bodyfat i'm currently ~25% and i have been for quite a while. i joined Nerd Fitness in July of 2013. from then until now i have been trying to drop these last few pounds of fat. physically, there have been a few small changes [both forward progress as well as back-sliding]. mentally and emotionally, however, i am in a much better place than ever before. i thi
  15. "There is no need to sally forth, for it remains true that those things which make us human are, curiously enough, always close at hand. Resolve then, that on this very ground, with small flags waving and tinny blast on tiny trumpets, we shall meet the enemy, and not only may he be ours, he may be us." -Walt Kelly I’ve conquered boredom eating. I’ve conquered loneliness eating. I’ve conquered entitlement eating. Deeper than all these things I found something else, something different altogether. Here is how we recently met: A maple bar. I took it, intending
  16. Hey everyone! After lurking around Nerd Fitness for the last few months and living vicariously through my friend Priscillia I've finally decided to partake in a 6 week challenge of my own! A little about me - I'm 23 years old and currently work full time in retail. My whole life I've been on and off fad diets, losing weight and gaining weight. As an occasional gamer (not so avid anymore), I love the concept of NF... if you can spend so many hours leveling up your character in game and making it the best it can be, why can't you do that with your own life? Love the idea! I really think
  17. Ahoy ye mateys! Omg he has a little hat! The names Rookie and I am finding myself back at the Adventurers door step I hope you will have me back! Last challenge I joined the Scouts to help me focus on my upcoming 5k Color Run (July 26). During that challenge I focused on doing my C25K, eating clean without counting calories and doing exercises/stretches to help with my horseback riding. During that challenge another challenge popped up between my future SIL, Mum and my friend... If I lose 55lbs by August 2015.. I get a free trip to Positano, Italy! So my focus is back on losing those po
  18. Through sheer force of will he materialized! His spontaneous appearance accented by a resounding clap of pure anger and frustration! He collapsed to the ground, the magenta hued Pandarian breathing heavily. "Curse you Goregemonger!" he swore violently, a string of curses so vile they could not be reproduced with mere words alone. "It takes more than that to defeat me!" Laughter, deep and foreboding replied as he started his third quest. <Purple_Panda has reconnected> Long story short, last quest ended swimmingly I thought, held to my goals, didn't quite complete all of t
  19. Heyo, I just started up exercising and dieting again and something I've begun to do is running. I've never been much of a runner so I know that there are several things I'm getting wrong but one thing I know for sure is that I'm stepping wrong somehow. The calf muscle in my right leg gets really sore while I feel nothing in the calf muscle of my left leg. What am I doing wrong and how do I fix it? I think I'm using my right leg more than my left leg. When I go running it frustrates me so much that I stop and take a break just because I'm angry at myself. Help me please and by running i m
  20. Hi all! I understand there's already an ongoing thread for people that are already using Zombies, Run! or 5k, but I just wondered if there was anyone else out there who was starting up Zombies 5k? I've started it before, TWICE, but always gave up due to my horrendously low will power...even though I enjoyed it... weird. Anyone else thinking of starting it up for the new challenge? It would be nice to have some Zombuddies (hurrr) to go through it with?
  21. This is my first challenge. I'm super excited. I'm doing it with another friend (and possible another). I believe I've set up reasonable goals and I'm ready to get going. I hope to get to know some of you during this six-week challenge. Starting stats: 5' 11", 232lbs, BF% 28.1, sedentary lifestyle (programmer by day, husband/dad & movie buff by night) Challenge 1 Goals: 1. Do the Angry Birds Workout (ABW) for the full six weeks on Mon/Wed/Fri http://www.nerdfitness.com/blog/2011/03/10/angry-birds-workout-plan/ The ABW is just the first step to getting to Ranger. STR 3, DEX 1, STA 1 2
  22. First challenge! I'm really excited. I'm also a teeny bit lost on how to put points to each goal. Also how to break them up week by week. Goal #1 - 3 miles in 30 minutes I've been jogging six days a week for the last 4 weeks, and I've gone from one mile to 2.6 miles. My jog this morning took me 30 minutes. But not sure how to break that up into weekly intervals. Goal #2 - Yoga every day, strength training on Sundays and Thursdays. I've started this already, but haven't managed total consistency. Goal #3 - Spend 5 min a day focusing/meditating on this: I trust myself. The Universe
  23. Jumping in late, so this will really only be half a challenge. I tried doing my first challenge back in November and fell off the wagon after a couple of weeks, so, this is my second attempt... Start of NF (and Current) Height: 5'9" Weight: 258-260 lbs Body Fat: 47.5% Hips: 48.25" Waist: 42" Arms: 15.75" Thighs: 32" Pants: 18-20 Shirt: XL-XXL Since I'm only doing half the challenge, and since I failed so miserably last time, I just have 2 goals: Track Everything [+1 WIS, +1 CON]​Track all food/activity on WeightWatchersWear and sync FitBit every dayCouch to 5K [+2 STA, +1 DEX]​Foll
