Lurking no more!
Hi all, Welcome Ivor
Glad to hear all are still enjoying running. I'm not running tomorrow but diving, still trying to hold off till beginning April to get back out there but will be worth it when I do.
Silver - love the ice cream measures
Ivor - sounds like you're doing amazingly well! you got your running mojo back! this time next year I think you'll look back and have achieved a lot. Will be looking forward to hear how you get on with the 10 miler! your wife must be very proud of you!
I just did our local 10k road race (with my dad and fella there waving at strategic places - I felt truly specials) And knocked 2 mins off last years time which is good but not really my main driver.
Silver - you made me laugh once again.
Booey - still keeping an eye out for your doggie
Mal - don't listen to silver
Maam - not long now until April! can't wait to hear how your running progresses. Is there anything that you have to be careful of once you get back out there.
Stewart and Stripes really don't come here often now do they Stripes - we know you're not running so much but you can come on here anyway! Stewart - where on earth are you???
Stripes - Good to see you are still out there, sorry to hear no running, but it will help Good luck with the swimming and cycling too
I went diving yesterday and have pulled my neck and back muscles, just when I thought things were looking up. Hopefully temporary
Wow Silver, I am a lightweight afterall. I can hardly believe she ran a marathon at 39 weeks pregnant, I can barely walk by then.
Good news is the neck is heaps better, almost back to normal. Feeling great infact
Looking forward to going for a run again too, but more so getting excited for my kettleblast DVDs and kettlebell to arrive, it's going to be painful fun
Getting ready to party though first, my green tights have arrived today
Stewart, you're alive and well. Really good to hear from you and that you are doing so well. Wow a Mara in April, so excited for you! Don't run away from us again, you make us worry
We have our family back, yipee
I am 48 and started running seriously a month ago. I did try running before but then could never run more than 2 kms at a stretch without panting like an asthmatic dog!! Until one month ago when an ultramarathoner friend figured out what I was doing wrong. I was running. Sure. But too fast. She started me on a slower pace and I surprised myself by running 5k the first day! I did 12k last week on the longer run and generally run maintenance runs of 6-8 kms 3 days a week. I also bike twice a week, around 70 k, besides some yoga and pilates. I plan to run a half marathon distance in the next couple of months. Running is awesome fun and supremely addictive and I'm loving it. Its just me, the rhythm of my feet on the road, my heart beating steady and the wind on my face. Freedom and joy. And wonderful therapy for the menopause blues.
Eva, Welcome, glad to hear that you have sorted out your 'problem' and now can love running in all it's glory. I agree with the freedom you get, can't wait to get back out and find it all over again.
Oh, my kettleblast kit arrived yesterday, plan to give it a whirl tomorrow, now just to not damage me, the house, the furniture, the tele etc
Hi Silvertop, I hear you, fear not!
It sounds like your return to running has been strategically planned to coincide with Easter gorging...
I have decided not to venture out to the pub tonight to concentrate on writing a new article for my blog.
Are there any requests for info or chat on a particular area of running/training/.? I have writers block tonight
