For what it’s worth, I’ve always had great success with strong lifts 5x5 and bumping up to 5 smaller meals a day when trying to put mass on and build strength. Might not be suitable with a home setup.

Get a free day pass to one of the nice gyms & spas near you with Hussle.
Or choose one of the crappy ones if you'd prefer.
It's mostly Hiltons, Bannatynes but Nuffield Healths there's a couple of nice hotels in Edinburgh and London also.

FREE GYM PASS - Referral link

Enter your email address and click the "Get 50% Off" button.
Click "Start Shopping" and find a place you want to use.
Choose a "One Day Pass" and then "Check Out".
Choose "Pay by Card" but don't put in any details.
Only enter the code: MSEFREE in the referral box.
Once you've registered you need to receive an SMS to confirm that you are real.
After you've created an account they provide your own referral link to benefit from.

There's also a possibility that if you choose one of the locations in London that cost £20-£30, and then refund the pass, it should put that credit in your account and give you more funds to work with. I can't guarantee this but it seems like it would should.

Any runners here? I’ve always been fast but I’ve never did any sort of distance running and as age has caught up with me my fitness has suffered something awful.

Ran the Edinburgh marathon as part of a relay team with my work a few weeks ago - 8 mile leg - and it seems to have ignited some sort of bug for running (which is quite convenient as I’m hopping it’ll go some way towards stopping me ending up with a physique like a marshmallow).

Looking at doing a 10km relatively soon and want to do that in under 45 mins. Not a world beating time by any means but I’d be happy with it.

Anyone take it seriously? Any tips?

Check out a book called 80/20 running if you want to do it seriously.

The idea is you do about 80% of your training runs at 75% or so of your maximum heart rate. The other 20% is at a harder effort.
As you get fitter, your heart rate should stay the same, at 75% or so, but your minutes per mile/km will be faster.

DWFitnessFirst and Nuffield Health Gyms offer free day passes on their sites.
Just sign up and get one. Use it when I'm working away from home.
