Kwala - Well done!!! Make sure you keep it up

 LK - sounds good as well, but don't overdo it - I'm not even up to 6 miles yet, let alone doing that as a recovery run!

 Jinky - sorr y to hear about your dog - hope you can get out there soon!

I went out last night, but only got 3/4 way round my route - still did 2.7 miles, but was trying to do a bit more -  oh well, just one of those runs I think - I'm going to try and go again tonight, though I'll prob only do a short one

FT,   We all have those day... Hope you get out tonight

LK - How things is your training going ok ??

Kwala-  How are you? Glad your getting out..

I'm still going out, running going well no injurys so i'm out when i can.. Just plug those headphones in and out I go .... Happy days!!!

Glad your running is going well Mo and that you're spending some time free of injury at last

My training is still going well. Beat my HM PB last week and am about to embark upon VLM training I had a long chat last night at the club with a guy who's done 7 marathons and he's given me some top tips. So much to think about and do - trying out gels, finding the right socks, running on tired legs etc. So much more than just getting the distance nailed. It's going to be hard work!!

Did you manage to get out tonight FT? Sorry to hear last night wasn't so great. 

Body Pump for me tonight. I felt really flaky for some reason, like I was about to faint. Very odd. So I came home, made chocolate brownies and ate some of the mixture. Now I feel much better

No didn't get out last night due to being too busy arguing with Mrs FT

 Will try again tonight

FT,   That would of been the best time to get out lol helps you run faster... You know us women are ALWAYS right...

LK,   Your doing brill, .... 

Guess there is a lot more to the Marathon than the mile, We don't tend to think about the socks and gels untill we are doing it ourselfs... Sounds like your in GOOD hands tho!!

How you feeling today be carefull with those sugar crashes.. 

Where is every one else??

No running tonight for me it's snowing..

18/12/2009 at 07:59
I didn't run last night because of the snow, and I'm baby sitting whilst Mrs FT gets her hair done this afternoon. We are at her Xmas do tomorrow, and we have a room booked at the hotel - there's a gym there so I may jump on the treadie for a bit - it might be dull, but it will be warm!

Hi all,not been on here for a bit,not been doing anything for 2 weeks,need some new trainers as my ankle been playing up,sure I got wrong ones so Im going to get my gait checked properly.Going back SW too as been piling the pounds back on,just shows how much I was doing,feeling like a rite lazy blob at mo,please Santa need some Mojo quick.

Hope everyone is ok.

ET - it's hard at this time of year with the weather and all the Christmas treats being handed around. Hope your ankle is better soon.

 We were running late on Saturday, so didn't get to to the hotel in time to use the gym, and with the weather there's no chance if getting outside.

I think from now until the new year might have to be scheduled rest!

'sneaks out again' xxxx

Happy b-day LMS

Hi all!  Lousy weather - been confined to the treadie for the last couple of runs - don't like it at all!  5k race on Boxing Day but looks like that might not happen if pavements don't clear   I too am feeling blobby at the moment but can't be ars*d to do anything about it until the New Year.

23/12/2009 at 08:06
Trigger - I know what you mean - with the weather I've not been for a run for a week now, and almost feel that even if it did miraculouly clear up by tonight, that I've already resigned myself to not doing anything else until new year - at least you have access to a treadie and you can still do a bit
23/12/2009 at 17:57
Just popping in to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and hope that you all have a fab running year in 2010.

Am now less than 10 weeks away from popping sproglet out so I'm very fat and very fed up. Met up with Albion today for lunch and it's made me realise just how much I miss running. Can't wait to be back on here mid-next year when I will officially be a beginner again!

23/12/2009 at 19:47
Wonder if someone could help me?  Can't remember who it was introduced me to SW club but can't find the section with the password?  Has it been removed?

Happy Christmas everyone
26/12/2009 at 13:26
Hope you all had a great Christmas.  5k race for me this morning and I've just knocked 1.30 off my pb - RESULT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Am chuffed to say the least!
26/12/2009 at 16:55

Hi all, hope you've all had a brilliant Christmas We've had a really lovely one with the family and are relaxing at home today (apart from my race which I'll mention in a sec).

Well done on your smashed PB Trigger, what a cracking Christmas Pressie. 

Belated thanks for the encouragement Mo. You're right about the sugar crashes. Need more than a just a marathon training schedule for the new year. I eat pretty healthily anyway, but maybe need to introduce some more energy foods to my diet so that I'm still feeling bouncy in the evenings.

Sorry to hear you're having trouble again Ecky. Did you manage to sort yourself some new shoes? And don't worry about not running and feeling like a blob. If you're getting pain, it's really not worth it. You'll lose it soon enough once you're back on form

Hey albs ((waves)). Been noticing all of your runs on FB recently. Well done! Keep going

Hope you're enjoying your rest FT. It'll do you some good to have a bit of time off, I bet!

LMS I can't believe it's only 10 weeks away. Where on earth has the last 6 odd months gone? It really has flown!! 

How's everyone else???

Had a Boxing Day Handicap race today and smashed my PB with 8:09 minute miles. I felt rubbish when I got up, so I've no idea what happened. I was just flying Very tired now though, so I think it's a night in front of the tele with some wine, cheese & crackers for me

Hi guys,hope you all had a lovely Christmas,we had a lovely time, still remembered little man but didnt feel so guilty about enjoying it this year.

Well done on your runs Trigger and LK.

I managed to get to the running shop and have my gait checked,he sold me some Nike trainers with the Chip thingy in them,I do overpronate and Im realy hoping that these do the trick,I was amazed how noticable the dif was in neutral shoos and then the ones he sold me.I think now I have to correct some of the damage I did in the wrong shoos,legs still hurting but I think thats partly my weight still and the fact I have not been out for weeks.I did a little plod this morning but it did hurt,. Back to SW on weds only 11 weeks to go till the kilomathon,heard it will be televised too although not sure if its just regional or national.

Blimey - looks like PB season!!!

Glad everyone is doing well!

I tried to get out for a run on Saturday at a nearby park, but it was either sheet ice on the paved bits, or slightly melted ice on the grass that turned it into a quagmire - did about 10 mins and gave up - was slipping and sliding all over the place what ever surface I tried!

Managed to get out yesterday though - stuck to the roads, which are all pretty clear and did 3.16 miles at about 8:30 m/m so the enforced lay off hasn't done too much damage.

Going for my first run with a running club tonight to see how I get on - looking forward to it!
