If so' I'm in...

Can we take a break at 5K, have a little lunch and then leisurely walk back to the start?

If so, I'm in...

RE: Anyone up for a challange?
I am walking to work and home with a friend every day. Yesterday we measured how far it is to her house (she has an app for that on her iphone). that was round 2 km. that is about 2 thirds of the whole way I am walking cause I live a bit further away from work. So I found out that I am walking 3 km one way, therefore 6 km everyday.
Was very interesting to know, i'd not have thought that it is that far.

Also I thought about walking the stairs a bit more. I mean. We have a set of stairs in the apartment (sounds cooler than it is) and I was wondering if walking the stairs a lot regulary would help losing weight? What do you think? Walking them up and down for 15 minutes or something like that? dunno if that would help

If you lost weight it's a matter of ORDER...
If you wouldn’t be so messy, you'll remember where you left it and wouldn’t lose it.

I am careful not to weigh myself more than once a week and at the same time of day 'cause I can shit out two kilos in one sitting.

Sure as hell would, but you don't need stairs. Just get a 12-18" step stool and do it in your living room. And hold a couple of heavy ass dumbbells (I use 75 lb ones) while you do it and you won't last or need 15 minutes. And it won't feel like cardio. ... God I hate cardio.

Think it'll still be hot 10 days later when I finally make it there?

Really Leela? You gonna try and shame us into exercise? Wink

Dumbbell rows, 5x6 - 100 lbs
Dumbbell curls, 5x4 - 50 lbs ... that's enough.

....

Okay, so I guess maybe this could work. Big Grin

From the looks of your avatar, your work is probably plenty adequate to keep you in shape. Smile

RE: Anyone up for a challange?
that's easy, reminds me of my brother Big Grin

He was 17 I was 19, he came home with new weights and was like, "I can do 500 lifts with this" (was i think 5 kilo or so) "and you can't even do 100" to my mother. My mom always up for a challange, takes it, does 100, smiles and gives it back. He can't shut up and tells me the same. I am like, "ok if I do 100 you do your 500!" he "yea yeah sure" not believing I could.
I do the 100, smile, hand over "now you"
He starts lifting, I start counting. at about 350 I keep counting silently, telling him only after every 50 and let him make 50 more. So I tell him "you are done now, at 550"
He sweaty, red head, arm shaking "I don't believe you!" keeps going.
I am like "no really, you are done! I let you make more actually"
Well let's say, he couldn't even lift a glass of water or a pen with that hand anymore for a day. But he also never behaved like a dick again Big Grin Big Grin
*me evil sister*
