Launching the podcast

Last week the first episodes of the RetroFit podcast rolled off the production line, flew the coop and mixed further metaphors in the ears of kind, wonderful listeners. Since then, they have found new homes on iTunes, Stitcher, PlayerFM, TuneIn and, hopefully, any other podcast service or app that you or I care to mention. There is now a RetroFit Twitter feed, and I'm venturing back into the murky world of Facebook to post RetroFit news on its very own Page there.

I'm suddenly very aware of having started this thing and the responsibility I have to make it the best collection of discussions about the realities of trying to tackle languishing health & fitness that I possibly can. With that in mind, I'm contacting potential guests and getting all my ducks in a row for the 26 or so episodes I have in mind. I have no idea how many will agree to guest on the podcast, but I have high hopes of bringing a diverse and interesting group to the table.

As mentioned in Episode 00, the plan is for the podcast to run fortnightly. I'll also bolster that with a steady, hopefully weekly, stream of written updates on here. Nothing too heavy, just sharing resources, experiences, etc. On that note, a little update...

As luck would have it, I was finally well enough to return to work this week. A couple of days of walking to get back into the swing of things, but, with a little trepidation, I returned to my morning workout routine this morning. I eased back into it with a low-impact Body Project warm-up, followed by a rotisserie workout (plank until you can't plank no more!) Not high intensity, but good to be back in the swing of things, nonetheless.

Haven't been weighing myself through the Crohn's flare-up, as I've been so restricted in activity that it hardly seemed worth it. Besides, as mentioned in Episode 01, focussing on weight cuts a poor figure when it comes to being happy and healthy with who we are, and not who we are expected to be.
