    healthy lifestyle thread

    I'm still alive and still loosely follow this thread. It fills me with nostalgia and has encouraged me to reflect. I've been on Smogon for well over 10 years now and below is a collage of the first 'fitness' picture I ever posted on these forums alongside a more recent one from a few days ago. A...

    Couple of photos in lieu of a proper update. Lots going on in the next few months - a warm weather training camp in the Canary Islands next week, a British championship race in Ireland in April and a 'sky race' in Norway this summer to look forward to.

    Official Cross Country/ Distance Running Thread

    Oversimplifying but have found, through over a decade as a competitive runner, that the majority of overuse injuries can be treated with a handful of simple exercises. For knee pain, stretch your quadriceps religiously and begin a protocol of back squats. If squats are too painful, do eccentric...

    healthy lifestyle thread
