I did the c25k last year but then had to stop after quite a bad case of plantar facitis.

Not done any exercise for a while but have got my exercise bike ready. Am going to do 20-30 mins of hiit about 4 times a week. Has anyone done this and lost weight and toned up?

No but I want to! Need to lose two stone and getting on the exercise bike will help I know. Just how easy is it NOT to do it?! I am aiming for 15 minutes a day. I just get so bored and think of other things I should be doing...! Good luck clean machine.

Fat Thank you for your reply. I did 13 minutes yesterday. Ooooofffff. My arse is killing. Why are the seats so frigging uncomfortable, i couldn't walk straight for an hour. I did 30 secs full pelt, 1 min normal and repeat. I was knackered by the end and really enjoyed it.

Let's buddy up maybe we can help each other along on this thread. I'm doing 5 2 as well although i lose very very slowly. I'm hoping the cycling will speed up my losses. Right off to massage arse cheeks before my next session tmrw.

What music do you listen to whilst training? It may help to put some up beat music on and then use the chorus to sprint

I find Niki manage songs good and some other nsff stuff - I use YouTube

That's a good idea ivy. I will take up that suggestion. I was supposed to go on the bike today but (tmi) my lady bits are really sore! So I've postponed for a few days. How long do you cycle for icy? ?

It shouldn't be that uncomfortable. Try changing the saddle or wearing padded shorts ?
