Some guidelines for general use on the 'Fit Open' Mastodon instance.
Full details can be found here:
Have started getting up early and heading out running before work in the week now. I'm only on week 3, but I'm already pretty adjusted to it I think. I do feel a bit sharper at work for it, but the real benefit is the 'extra' hour I get with the family in the evening with the run already out of the way.
Beginning running Show more
Yay!!! Did the longest outing since I started a walk-run program 10 weeks ago (after doing the classic beginner mistake of initially running to far and too fast).
Almost 8.5K - have been implementing a bunch of tips on running form recently, and I can really feel how they're reducing the stress on my body and at the same time speeding me up.
So exciting! It feels like playing a video game, but with my body, and real :) Slowly getting better at it, understanding how it works :)
Decent run this morning, didn't quite make my goal but my fastest pace post-injury. Trying to be more "intuitive" so watch just tells me how fast I did previous km, makes it trickier to hit goals than if watching pace, but I'm less likely to push too hard. #running
Episode 96 of The East Coast Trail and Ultra Podcast is superb - "The Toughest Human In North America"
They interview Rhoda Smoker and Rhonda-Marie Parke about Vol State, a 314 mile run across Tennessee.
Rhoda won the race.
Rhonda-Marie did it alone.....Blind.
In complete awe of the woman.
(CW for the podcast. The guys are funny, silly, raucous, naughty and foul-mouthed. Use headphones)
C'est parti ! My 2-month #running training for 20km_Paris started today. It's gonna be my 3rd one, will it be my best?

How are you today!?
OK I probably didn't need to join another instance but here I am anyway.
I'm a composer, working on a PhD.
I have some chronic healthcrap issues, including jointcrap.
I love to walk.
I would like to improve my strength and cardio fitness.
I subscribe to a Health At Every Size philosophy.
I have today taken the initiative to REMOVE the following protected axes from Fit Open's Code of Conduct:
We demand respect for our whole community. We strive to ensure the safety of every community member. Your political views do NOT eclipse our expectation for you to maintain a civil demeanor and respect to your fellow community members.
I know there’s a perpetual debate about #cycling #helmets and I would never dream of forcing anyone else to where one forcibly. However, today I was cycling home and I was passing a couple of pedestrians on a shared path on a bit where some of it had been blocked off. As I got into the narrowed lane, I noticed too late that there was a very heavy low hanging branch on which I banged my helmeted head quite hard (I mean loudly).
It was hot..i was slow..but the world was beautiful and i finished my 17k route again. The air is full of tiny insects, making it sometimes complicated to breath esp when one lands in the nose lol.
I have seen deers, rabbits and a young fox and lots of micro toads. :3 https://www.strava.com/activities/1651414586/shareable_images/photo_based/23341552/1/c6a09c53-3385-49f2-b8cd-4b6968e2b675?hl=en-US&v=1529525630 #running #runner #mastorunner #run #barefoot #vibram
A very warm welcome to this instance @davidmichaelross
Body-positivity, bruises Show more
Yes, I like my body full of bruises. Each one is for me the proof that I can fight, that I'm strong, and that even if I'm not feeling always good in it, sometimes my body do wonderful things.

This is our collaborative social space. We're establishing a community, across the globe. Choosing to step away from the centralisation of gyms. To firmly ground ourselves in the freedom of discovery, and participation of outdoor fitness & endurance sports. Our home is formed as a dependable, advertisement free, vibrantly safe space for all. We all need a little support to get us to our goals. We're here to connect as humans, share tips & advice, a supportive community when things turn tough, and celebrate those personal wins along with you.
Mastodon provides the framework of our social platform. It's open source and based on the Web standards body W3C recommendation -- 'ActivityPub'. Over 2,000 active instances are already federating together in excess of 1.3 Million diverse users, each adopting decentralisation as a true alternative. We're a new addition to these highly distributed instances.
Anyone can join us here in our Mastodon home. All we ask is that you observe our Code of Conduct*, linked below. Each instance has it own rules. If you're not a fan of ours, take a look at joinmastodon.org for alternatives.
Sign up today. By choosing 'Fit Open' as your home, you'll add your fitness lifestyle to this growing community.
More details of how join in the creation of our social enterprise, will come in the months ahead. See our progress in the documents below.
This social platform has been founded to drive interest, partnership, contribution, and investment towards a much needed fitness industry infrastructure model. Its MPL 2.0 copy-left open source licensed code-base can be found seperately over on Github*. This is being developed for human connection at the intersection of:
You do not have to take part in this infrastructure building to take part in our community here on Mastodon. With transparency as key, it's important you know what drives our efforts.
Support our server running costs, community building, and platform development milestones. Help us get things done. Should we hit a surplus, this will be focused towards ethically designed projects (decided by consensus) which align with the community's collective, human centred mission.
These are open to being shaped by community members discussion and input.
Code of Conduct. How we respect each other.
Github repo. Contributors welcome. Soon to move to Gitlab, but we'll be retaining a mirror on Github.
Roadmap. The milestones towards full platform realisation.
Draft Ethics Policy. Designing our social impact.
Draft commitment to Open Source. Not only are we building a FOSS project, we are commited to further supporting Open Science, Open Data, Open Knowledge, Open Innovation, and Open Governance.
