feeling sick now!
well 10 miles done so that’s 5 for today and the 5 i should have done tomorrow which means i can have a rest day now before i do the 8 on Friday hopefully next week i will be able to get back into a more normal routine and spread the runs out more evenly over the week
Speediersal well done on the run and especially on not having to walk
Back to work tonight Been a wonderful christmas and New Year.Returned from Cornwall yesterday,no weight gain luckily
Marathon trainining started today.plan said run for 30 mins so I did 40
Following a really simple plan running 4x week so hopefully doable around family/work.Just plodding at 11 m/m which feels very comfortable.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas/New Year
SS,great that you're running again.My local park run which is by the Thames has been flooded since Nov but hopefully with the drier weather i'll be back there soon.Are you planning to do some more parkruns?
Toby,fantastic mileage and weightloss.I've got about a half stone to lose,and detemined to shift itYou must feels tons better?2 stone + is a lot of weight to not have to carry round!especially on long runs?
B+T,hope Cornwall was good to you too,wet and windy for us but still had some great walks etc
AH,hope the move is going well
Right must get going.Running again Fri and Sun.Plan says 40 mins long run on Sun so will do an hour or so,good feeling to already feel ahead
Hi all belated new year wishes...welcome to all newbies on the thread...A.H good luck with move ..Toby AMAZING weight loss and mileage going on ..
Running wise i have done nothing, zilch not a sausage....but i did go on tinterweb yesterday and with my christmas money purchase a nice shiny pair of brooks adrenaline gts 12 trainers...and a foam roller!!! My old trainers have seen 2 marathons several halfs and all the training that those runs entailed so thought it best to start new year on right foot as it were ...they were not giving me much support anymore...
Ive only had xmas day off of work this year so hasnt felt like xmas thats what happens when your in the pub trade... still at least i dont suffer from going back to work after a long holiday blues thing....
Talking of work i must get on..take care all happy running
Rest day today so feet up in front of the television
Welcome to Samantha good luck with your first H/M it can be very daunting if you look at the distance and time as a whole so you could try breaking it down into smaller bits for example just tell yourself I’ve just got to run for 5 minutes or i just reach the next tree also don’t try and run the first couple of long runs to fast don’t worry about the time tell yourself the aim is to finish the run
Susie well done you on running the extra the plan i follow only has me doing 4 runs a week i do find that way It’s much easier to fit it in around everything
B & T no work wasn’t as bad as i thought last night but that may be done to not everyone being back to work or that’s what were hoping as i can see if the linage doesn’t improve then there may be some job losses
Yvonne lovely to hear from you sorry to hear you never felt Christmassy have to say we had a funny Christmas day thing's got a bit tense at time's can’t really explain it but it turn out Ok in the end hope the new trainers work out ok your going to need them when you start training for your Ultra will have to meet up some time
Happy New year and welcome to newbies chappersuk & Samantha .. *waves*
Toby - you are going great guns with your training (20ml run) and weight loss (29lb lost).
B&T - glad you enjoyed Cornwall and managed to fit in a short run whilst away. Well done re the 3ml run .. figured out when to do that 10ml run yet?
AH - you're not around but 'have a good move' wishes being sent your way.
Sal - I have to stop and walk on some of my runs but I don't ever tell anyone (oops!). Good to hear you didn't have to walk last time out
Chappers - welcome. Hope the forthcoming HM training goes okay.
Susie - glad to hear you had a good break. Shame parkrun course has been under water - I must have passed it on my TP walk in May 2012?
Samantha - welcome to you too. I think you'll surprise yourself with what you're capable of. Just build up the mileage gradually - the '1 hour' barrier is just psychological!
Yvonne - welcome back. Nooo trainers eh? And a foam roller too (they hurt but they do help!).
I managed a 3ml run before work yesterday at silly o'clock. On the Fetch website I've joined a '500 miles in 2013' group .. so only another 497 to go (last years total was 458mls).
I've also joined a Fetch 'flab-fighters' group hoping the weigh-ins and virtual group mentality might help me lose weight.
We have Mrs Wm's family descending on Saturday for a post-xmas get-together. So the current plan is to get out tonight for 4-5mls and then do a longer (7ml) run on Sunday.
Samantha - I won some Lucozade goodies in a RW competition. Tried the gels and they didn't cause any probs but did feel/taste like fruit-flavoured toothpaste! Have also tried Clif shot bloks and they were just as good. They're like cubes of jelly and getting bits out of your teeth afterwards takes your mind off running! Best thing is try both and decide for yourself.
((Dee)) - sorry to hear about old work team mate. On plus side, good luck with forthcoming HM and training for that. Good idea to test hamstring on treadie in case of probs.
Sal - shame about parkrun/ballet lesson clash. Hope soreness from core exercises doesn't last too long. Enjoy parkrun tomorrow.
Managed 4mls yesterday evening - missed my footing in dark and twinged right knee but was able to keep going and it seems okay this morning. Busy day in store tomorrow - Mrs Wm's family descending en-masse. Plan for Sunday is long run in morning then my friend Caroline is coming round at 2pm. She needs help setting up Garmin for pace/interval training. Have manual with me today for lunchtime reading! Told C to bring her cossie with her if she fancies a post-Garmin sauna.
Going back to running club on Mon eve - first time since last April (eeeek!)
well week 4 completed with an 8 mile run taking 1:16:23 giving me 9:16 m/m so dead chuffed
ss don't be down on yourself at least you got your butt out and ran....look at me I'm posting from my Xmas pressie to myself a kindle fire...it's a great bit of kit I've even downloaded a book on ultra running...you can borrow a book a month from the cloud yes I asked my kids what it was so I borrowed one it's only if your on prime I have a free trial but won't renew as it's 49 a month....now to see if I can actually post so here goes...
ss she will enjoy it only thing is I have to ration myself with it as it's addictive ...well I'm still waiting for my trainers to arrive it did say between 4th and 9th for delivery then I will attempt my first bimble on the running front since um I think beginning of November ....shocking I know but I really did need new trainers as my old ones really had no support left and I kept feeling a slight twinge now with Xmas money I can get some ..right on this space age device again and I'm in bed..WiFi is a wonderful thing ...back to normal tomorrow school wise and get back into routine wise ...night all
Evening all! Glad to hear everyone's getting back into the swing of things. 1 more day of holiday for us tomorrow, kids not back until Tuesday.
Never managed to fit my 10 miles in - Mr B&T was struck down with a sickness lurgy on Friday morning, and I've had a horrible headache since then. Both been feeling really washed out and yuck. I presume I've got the bug but in a different way! Really hoping to get out tomorrow just for 4 miles, with kids on bikes - so fingers crossed for me!
well the start of week 5 has me doing 4, 8, 5 and what should have been my first 20 miler but will play it by ear this week as i suspect I'm coming down with a sore throat and a cold so will have to see how I'm feeling by the end of the week next week however will be a step back week as regards to long run with a 13 plan for Friday week
S/S well done on the park run as Yvonne said you got out there and ran the speed will i am shore return
Yvonne hope the trainers arrive soon for you and you have lots of fun playing with the kindle fire
Dee well done to you also on the run glad the hamstring felt ok for you
B & T hope you’re feeling better soon
Long time lurker posting, hope you don't mind me joining in...
Hello everyone *waves*
A little background info, for those that may be interested. I started running last Feb, purposely avoided January as I didn't want running to be a New Years resoloution if that makes sense, as have started a few times but have generally give up within a few weeks!
Anyway this time I persisted and sucessfully completed 3, 10ks improving my time in July (British 10k - never again) from 1hr 2 mins to my last one in November Brighton Brooks to 50 mins and 9 sec. I also improved my Parkrun time from 35 mins to 24.33 mins.
This year my goals is to run a 10k in sub 50 mins, and a HM in sub 2hrs (secretly I would love to get 1hr 50 mins ish). I am also considering a full marathon - depending on how I feel after my first HM.
So my first HM which is Brighton is on the 17th Feb, already feeling excited but a tad nervous. I am well into my training plan - however there has been a few changes due to illness etc over the last few weeks, but fingers crossed its onwards and upwards from now on. Completed my LSR yesterday of 8.7 miles (was supposed to be 9 miles but just kind of run out of road ), generally running at at comfortable pace of about 9.5 min/miles.
Look forward to continuing to read all about your training - well done everyone on all your achievements - but will also post as well now!
