Actually looking forward to giving that one a go in the coming weeks as I know the movements!

Haven't been training at all really the past couple of weeks. My glutes were really knotted up and have improved but I still have aches in random areas so I'm going to start back in the gym today but with a much higher focus on stretching pre and post training and also not overtraining in terms of volume per day or volume per week. During my 2 weeks off I ate and drank a boat load so am going to spend April eating well and losing some of the fat I put on. Will post body shots every 5 days to monitor progress rather than going near the weighing scale. Have also signed up to runs 3/5 weekends in April.

First pic has a nice belly to be lost

30/03:

Filthy 50: 50 reps of each set before progressing (timed):
50 x 60cm box jumps
50 x jumping pull ups
50 x 24kg kettlebell swings
50 x walking lunges
50 x knees to elbows
50 x 20kg push press
50 x back extensions
50 x 9kg wallballs
50 x burpees
Time: 30:40 (0:53 slower than last attempt)

Good to be back. Happy with the time. The burpees as always were a killer. Stretched after but can feel aches worsening already especially in lower back. Will need to find the right stretches and mix these type of intense training sessions up with more relaxed non-timed workouts.

31/03:

Bench: 70kg*3*10
Lat pulldown: 70kg*3*10
Plyo clap push ups: 15, 15, 13
DB shrugs: 30kg*3*10
Incline bench: 50kg*3*10
Pull ups: 3*10
Box jump burpees: 60cm*2*10

Relatively easy going compared to usual workouts. Felt weird leaving gym and not being exhausted but I was just being stupid in the past. Stretched a lot at random intervals today but still stiff so will keep doing that and work on flexibility.

16km mountain biking trail. This was great fun, even the few falls, and good aerobic workout but I somehow did damage to my left hamstring. Will restrict me to upper body for a few days I'd say.

03/04:

Bench: 80kg*2*5, 77.5kg*5 (last rep at 80 2nd set was a struggle so didn't try 3rd set)
Pull ups: 3*10
Incline DB bench: 25kg*3*10
Pull ups: +15kg*3*5
DB flyes: 15kg*3*10
Pull ups: +10kg*3*5
Shrugs: 25kg*3*10
Plyo clap push ups: 5*10

5 days into the healthy eating now. Have only eaten good food but eaten maintenance or above in terms of calories while I adjust to the clean diet again. Will look to keep a calorie deficit for the next 5 days.

Diet is going well thus far. Need to take 2-3 days off now to allow a hamstring strain to recover. Not much difference visually in the last 5 days but progress will be slower now.

I took a few days off because my hamstring is in bits but it somehow got worse during rest period. I'm going to the physio after work today so fingers crossed it's a quick recovery. I absolutely hate not having exercise as an option. Diet has been a bit up and down but doing OK:

Chin ups: 3*13

18/04:

15 min light cycle (3 miles)

5km run: 21:21. Intended to run at a lighter pace but glute felt OK so went for time after 1 km.

15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7 reps:
30kg press
Chin ups
Time: 15:50. Planned to go down to 1 rep but shoulders were gassed.

Day 20 progress below. Few days have been above maintenance but haven't had alcohol or large amounts of sugar over the 20 days so it's boding well. Going on holidays in just under 3 weeks so will keep it up until then.

Signed up to the Helsinki marathon in August, around 15 weeks away. Did one before in 2014 in 04:02 and really enjoyed the race but hated the training in the build up, never running over ~23km. Going to approach it in similar way running 15-20km once a week and something like 10km once fortnightly and 5km once a week. I'll throw in a 30km once or twice over the 15 weeks and I think that will give me every chance of beating previous time. The challenge of a marathon is as much mental as physical and that's really what I'm after. Also, think it's a good incentive to quit smoking.

Expect a lot of posts like this over next 15 weeks

Meh, should've done more. It's 4 weeks til the marathon and I haven't even run half the distance yet and I'm not sure I will tbh. Don't enjoy it at all and it's hard to do 2 hours + of something you don't want to be doing. I will get through the 42km on the day through jogging and walking; I just won't get it done in an impressive time.

25/04:

2.25 miles run (3.6km): 14:51. Was aiming for a sub 20 min 5km but I'm not at that level currently and the early pace killed me.

For time: 15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps:
50kg bench press
Pull ups
Time: 15:27 (47 seconds faster than previous attempt)

26/04:

For time: 15-14-13-12-11-10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps:
27.5kg press
Chin ups
Time: 16:40

Bicep curl: 22.5kg*3*10
Lateral raises: 7.5kg*3*10
Shrugs: 35kg*3*10
Front raises: 7.5kg*3*10
Close grip bench: 60kg*3*10

16.5km @ 1:25.

Delighted with the time and distance. Much quicker pace than I thought during the run. Was tough going for the last 5-6km but no aches or pains, just low energy levels so a very promising start to the marathon training. Fit for bed now
