  1. Yep, much respect in continuing to train and lift despite being unwell. Hope you get better soon SeaSiren!
  2. I just do ab sets between other sets at the gym, whilst waiting for equipment etc. Or whilst I am warming up or down. Easy way of training them.
  3. You can cut whilst also adding muscle. I've put on more muscle recently, and at the same time become more cut. Yeah do some cardio. It will help you cut and so long as you train the weights hard you can still add muscle. I wouldn't worry too much about cutting the calories.
  4. Well done Fiona! http://www.towerhillstables.com/MdSreport2012.html

  6. Which pea protein you go for - the Biochem or Natures Whey?
  7. This company also does flavoured hemp proteins: http://www.goodhempnutrition.com/good-gym-range/11-good-gym-shake-1kg-chocolate.html
  8. Presume you're in the UK? There is stuff out there. This stuff tastes really good, bit pricey though: http://www.planetorganic.com/biochem-vegan-protein-vanilla.html http://www.planetorganic.com/biochem-vegan-protein-chocolate.html If you'd prefer to purchase only from a purely vegan company, this vegan all in one has recently launched in the UK. Mint and strawberry flavours taste good. Waiting to try the toffee: http://www.natures-whey.co.uk/product/ignite-ultra-v-mint-chocolate/ Another - cheaper - option is just to throw bananas, berries and other fruit, flavoured ice cream/yoghurt into unflavoured protein. Quite easy to disguise the tase.
  9. Hello veglaxer, I've been running for 17 years and weight training for 14 years. I get good results for both - of the last five races I have entered I have placed 2nd in foour of them. I win a few too and nearly always place top 3/5/10. I race from 5K up to half marathon. I might have a place for the London marathon next year. I've got excellent abs even if I do say so myself. Just vary the ab exercises you do would be my main advance and stick to those exercises you can really feel whilst you are doing them and for days afterwards... What did you want to know about half and full marathons? Obviously they hurt more and take longer than shorter runs and races, and you have to treat the distances with respect by training for them properly.
  10. But it sounds like you weren't doing weights then, until you got injured - 'Meanwhile I've started doing some full body workouts/core workout to strengthen upper body and build at least some muscles.' Runners are by default mostly slim by the nature of their exercise so no surprises there, it's what happens when you run. If you stop running, as you did when you got injured, and then started training with weights it's no great shock that you put on muscle either. I may be wrong, but what it sounds like you haven't been doing so far, is running and weight training at the same time? Until you are incorporating both into your fitness regime, then you cannot know that running will consume all your muscle. It won't either, so long as you train hard with the weights.
  11. Just keep lifting and you'll retain - most if not all - of your muscle mass. I run four times a week - I did 75 minutes, approx 12 miles this evening for instance - and nearly always longer than 10K. I go the gym the other three days. You won't lose the muscle so long as you continue to go the gym. Just make sure you train hard at the gym. You should get good defination and cut by cross-training. It's not as if you should weight train seven days a week anyhow.
  12. Good to randomly bump into you and your brother at a gym John! Nice to meet you both. Enjoy Fabric - I'm off there myself next Friday!
