    Having been on the "Breakup" diet recently (I lost a stone... excellent), I also impulse purchased a Swimmo swim watch and have been walking with a friend (no timetables or we won't do it )

    I'm trying to get myself fit enough to swim masters - and am also investigating this "Wild Swimming" malarkey. It's just the getting there...

    Next week eh?

    Wild swimming as in open water? If so, do it. I HATE swimming in a pool now.

    Interesting!! Ingress is almost like geo-caching combined with capture the flag. You have Goruck challenges and some of the mission banners are dozens of km in length - I had a nice 40km walk around London on Saturday doing a few.

    Edit!!

    You also get lots of badges and levels,so for example you need to walk 2500km to get the top medal for walking,etc.

    Was just guilted into doing the Boxhill Ballbuster this weeekend. 8 mile run loop, 3x 8 mile bike loop then a final 8 mile run loop each one finishing with hitting the zigzag ascent of Box Hill in Surrey.

    Highly recommended if you're a masochist!

    Given this thread is subtitled "post your pain" I should probably drop this in here:

    https://www.strava.com/activities/1510381256

    Part of my preparation for the Tour de Yorkshire sportive in ... eek, less than 3 weeks time! The pain bit happened about half way up the last climb when my left knee started giving out. I'm currently in bed with a tubigrip on it, hoping rest + ibuprofen will calm it down enough to get out over the next 2 weekends....

    Done London marathon yesterday in 4h 13min. My first marathon ever Shame I had to zig-zag between people till the end - I'm sure with a clear route my time would've been better. Plus had to stand & wait 1.5h before I could cross the start line. Plus it was rather warm
