for those looking at threads but dont want to intrude ........
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..
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 in' -- HELLO !
hope everyone is ok ?
'sneaks out again' xxxx
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.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL, OLD,NEW AND PRESENT !
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A LOVELY DAY !
KEEP RUNNING XX
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!
