Yeah, but were they 10 kms? :stuck_out_tongue:

Good time :slight_smile: I did 58’ last time, I’m really really behind my usual times and having a hard time getting there.


#222

Today :iran: 12K in 1:10:45 :slight_smile: I figured that if I can’t go for speed, I can go for distance.

I also lost a kilo. Other three to go!


#223

Because you said several times that you would like to lose weight: Can you “see” each kilo at your body? I know some people who can gain weight and you don’t see that (until a certain point :slight_smile: ). So it doesn’t matter if they weight for example 70 or 73 kilos. :slight_smile:


#224

I can’t “see kilos” but I can “see the trend”. If I’m putting on weight, it begins with my face. Cheeks and chin become rounder and I can clearly notice. The same happens if I’m losing weight.

So I might weigh 73 kilos, but I look slimmer if I was 75 and chubbier if I was 71 :stuck_out_tongue: but now my goal is to lose weight because the less you weigh the easier it becomes to run fast. Since I had my records when I was between 69 and 70, I want to get back to that range to compare my performance :smiley:


#225

That´s funny. For some reason my face is the very last thing that is affected.

But I found out for me there are only two options. Overweight and underweight.

When overweight people instantly tell you like it´s the funniest thing and treat you like you were a lazy decadent sloth.

When I was underweight everyone who saw me asked me if I was sick.

If I would worry about my appearence at this point I´d never stop to worrying because there is so much I cannot change, it wouldn´t make any sense.

Maybe I´ll try some astral traveling, but I´m not there yet.

5K in 24’54”
I can RIP now!


#227

So you will never run again and eat everything you like? :smiley:


#228

I already eat everything I like. :slight_smile:


#229

I wonder how much I weigh… hopefully closer to 80 than 70. :stuck_out_tongue:


#230

:telephone_receiver: Hello, this is the Thimbleweed Park Forum Tech Support. You asked a question we cannot help you with, how about you try it with the scale that is probably in your bathroom?


#231

We did buy an el cheapo model from Lidl a few years back but the battery’s dead. :slight_smile:

Anyway, obviously I don’t actually wonder. I was trying to signal my opinion about the stupidity of the concept.


#232

Oh yeah, there are scales that you could actually mistake for floormats.


#233

Has 4K TV, uses Linux, assembles his own keyboards, runs games in Wine and other kinds of geeky computer stuff,… but can’t replace a *beeping* battery!
:joy:
:wink:

Scales are like (wrist)watches…you don’t really need them.


#234

I still have a Wii Fit balance board that I only use as a scale. It’s nice for the kids so I can track their progress.

Probably not the most accurate measurements in the world but it works for me.


#235

No, idea why you would put a “but” there. Personally I´d use a “so”. :face_with_raised_eyebrow:


#236

Are you implying you want it to skew lower so you feel better about your weight? :thinking:
I’m one of those annoying people that can’t keep weight on (but I don’t speak in kilos).


#237

Ehm…yes!

In lbs?


#238

Right now I’m around 135, which is probably the most I’ve ever been. Whenever I get really stressed with work and start skipping lunch and stuff it all goes downhill.

But enough about me…

Jogging…


#239

My wife and I used a WiiFit board as a scale for years :smiley: we then bought an actual scale because “heh, it’s probably time we have a better measurement” and found out the Balance Board was extremely accurate.

Or our scale was awful. Point is, they always gave us the same result.


#240

“Run fo fun? What the hell kinda fun is that?”
My thoughts exactly! I don’t really like running.

Plus :clap: :clap: for inserting a Back to the Future reference!!
