Feel free to join me!
Well done B2B a good run there as much as it pains me to admit, as my own eating habits tend to be a bit erratic, I think diet does play an enormous part to play,especially as you are doing the types of mileage you are going to be doing in the lead up to the marathon - and the time you are likely to be on your feet - I am not sure if they still do it - but I used to rely on high carbo hydrate drinks in my marathon running days and just water during the actual race - (I think I would need to stop off for a full meal now!!)
Bananas - I would recommend 'The Competitive Runners Handbook - By Bob Glover - don't let the word Competitive put you off as it should just be called the Runners Handbook - and it does really start at the basics -
I know other will disagree but if you want inspirational - I would recommend From Last to First - which is the autobiography of Charlie Spedding - one of our all time great marathon runners and Plimsolls on Eyeballs out which is the biography of Jim Peters - another British great from the the 50s - Basically they both show that there are no short cuts or secrets - just hard work.
3 miles brisk this morning - still feeling snotty which is effecting my breathing a bit but the 98 day challenge continues and am not far from Gdansk now on my virtual run - hopefully will arrive by the end of October -
ha ha ha Grendel im finding the seasme cereal and chia a great combo! Used to stop for a sandwich, coffee and a chocolate bar!
Well done on keeping up with your challenge as well!
Bananas - Ive read loads!! Born to Run by Christopher McDougall is a must in my opinion, really inspiring!
Ive also read....ultramarathon man by Dean Karnazes, 26.2 stories of blisters and bliss by Dean Karnazes, the ghost runner by Bill Jones, what i talk about when i talk about running by Haruki Murakami, how to run fast and injury free by Gorden Pirie, chi running by Danny Dreyer and im now onto Eat and Run by Scott Jurek
I also started Feet in the clouds but couldnt really get into it...will try that when I start to run out of books!
Great running going on here. Welcome to the new posters this is a great place to be
After 2 weeks with only 2 runs been out twice this week and upping the mileage to a mighty 4 !!
Bananas - some one I know from Facebook had worked out a few days ago that there were 98 days to the end of the year and how about a challenge - so a few of us agreed to the challenge of running at least a mile a day until then -
Should have had a rest day today due to 10K but did a mile instead!!!!
I can't see why not as long as you take it easily - In some ways I'm not the best person to ask as I do run everyday - and although I was starting again from the beginning - up to 1999 I used to run very high mileage and ran two/three times a day so in many ways my body is used to it and what I can get away with.
The maxim to listen to your body is probably the best thing to do.
Just see how it goes then, as you are walking and running it should be OK.
Hello everyone, hope you are all well and getting in some miles.
I promise I will catch up real soon with all the posts I have missed but until Sunday evening I am simply flat out.
Went for my first run for a few days today after work. Felt really refreshed and ran a nice easy 3 miles. I won't be running again until Monday as I have 8 1/2 hours of football drills to look forward to on Sunday!
I never got out last night but will be out at 2pm with my friend and ill go out again tomorrow and see how the two days running feels as Monday will be rest day before club on tuesday. Happy Saturday everyone!
Happy Saturday Bananas - good luck with your two runs -
Just Run enjoy your 8.5 hours of football,
2 miles brisk done ahead of tomorrows 10K - looking forward to racing my 20 year old nephew!!! apparently he has been training hard and is determined to beat the old man!!!! We'll see!!!!
What 10k you doing Grendel ?
First 10K yesterday for the LInda Norgrove Foundation. Stunning scenary along the Valtos Peninsula on the Isle of Lewis. Had to walk a bit of it, but considering I started runnng just 9 weeks ago I feel really proud. Went for a swim in the sea afterwards with running buddy and her dog. Perfect.
Next 10K, I will run all the way.
