A place to declare your weekly results
well glad to report gym session done yesterday i have 8 to do today but may well carry on if i feel OK was meant to be going to Leicester this weekend so the O/H could take part in the race for life but that’s now off as it’s been cancelled again
Dave i have to say i to enjoy running with the wife she not the fastest thing on to legs but that’s not the point as you say it’s nice to spend time together
Gary sorry to hear about the hamstrung hope it not to serious yes the inner pig is a Wiley and cunning foe
Word will have to see if i can find the program some were sounds interesting
JLB3 i to had i little chuckle at the kebab comment
Words - Haven't seen the program yet, but saw a preview, and posted in the Gear forums about it. I'm not surprised at all about the sports drinks and protein shakes, but have to admit to have bought into the trainers end of things. Will definitely now be thinking very hard before parting with any serious cash on a new pair.
Dave - I'd love to get my wife into running, and for us to do it together, but alas kids are in the way!
Gary - It must be very frustrating for you, hopefully you recover quickly as you did the right thing and stopped straight away. Interesting that it's the other hammy, maybe the root cause is in the back? (although I'm not a medical Dr you undestand!)
I have been running alot this week as realised its only 7 weeks Sunday to my next HM cripes
Missed the panorama programme and really wanted to see it, is it repeated? I was watching about Brad Wiggins after the Tour highlights
Have a good weekend everyone and happy running
try BBC I Player
well 13 miles done in the end but i have to say the whole thing was a struggle from the word go i knew any sort of pace was out by the time I’d reached the end of the road whole run took 2:12:33 in a way not too bad it is 7 minutes slower than last time but the splits are all over the place ranging from 9:19 to 11:03 and not one in under 9
Oh well it has been a hard week at work well that’s my excuse any way it’s just one of those runs we all get from time to time
weighed to day no change from last week still 12st 3lbs but still pleased with that
toby3 Still a good distance and the time looks good...not that I have ever run that distance - EVER! will see this Sunday as I am attempting a 12 miler for the 1st time.
Gary Fatbloke Sorry to hear your injured, just think of the 'snacks' as a high energy recovery boost.
Wordslinger Good luck with the milage this weekend.
Worked from home today...so finished at 10:00am ( a good hours slog) then out for a 4 miler ended up in the gym.. 1hour workout (more parading about the place in my tights!) quick 1/2 mile back home ...this evening for my dinner thought I would jump on the band wagon and had kebab and chips with 2 slices of pizza....snort, snort!
well summers finally arrived went to the park run this morning with the O/H not the quickest time for her getting round we came home in 42:33 but enjoyable the wife had to do 6 miles today so we carried on afterwards all was going well till mile 4 when her heel started to play up so we decided to walk the rest returning to the car which we had left in Aston Court via the tow path that takes us under the Clifton suspension bridge
as we made our way along the tow we passed a path that lead through the woods and i have to say curiosity got the better of me as i had passed it on many occasion and was intrigued to see where it went as it turn out not one of my better idea’s as it was a bit of a clamber in places and muddy in other and combined with a steep climb
we came out on the main road across from Aston court were we had started so making our way back the park stopping to buy a well deserved ice cream we finally got back to the car in the end we did 6.5 miles the whole walk in the end took us 2:13:20 racking up impressive split times of 16:26 ,14:35 10:13, 15:22, 21:10, 35:33 and 19:59 for the last half mile
all in all veay enjoyable especially the ice cream at the end
toby3 sounds like quite the adventure! sometimes it's just plain fun to do something different. Well done on the 13 miles by the way...

Good luck to all you fellow losers and have a great week and keep those updates coming.
may do 8 today but would you believe it the sun comes out and i think I'm coming down with a cold so will have to see how i feel when i get up this afternoon it my be a case of a quick 3 miles on the the treadmill
will weigh later
Had a run friday but done nothing over weekend, I shall go out later for a short one
Toby - hope your feeling ok its horrible when you have a cold and its really warm
Not weighed myself for ages, had a curry takeaway last night so I will wait a couple a days haha
Dave - Congrats on your excellent progress, although reading your post has left me a little hungry,
Toby - Think I have a summer cold as well, or at the very least hay fever is breaking me. Not going to let it get to me though, Dublin is in less than 100 days, I've no time to lose!
Good strategy Booey, wife was hung over yesterday and I had a sympathy Indian with her last night, needless to say 2.5 lb on this week after stepping on the scales this morning.
Run to Parkrun, and did the 5k in 25:24, then ran home for 16k total on Saturday. I didn't get out on Sunday as I had to be in charge of the kids, probably for the best as muscles are quite sore and I have a bit of an ache in the pad of my right foot. Dublin is in 14 weeks and I haven't really got any focused training going, so going to step it up big time this week. Broken up 10 miles tonight, intervals on Wednesday, broken up 10 miles on Saturday and a solid 10.5 miles on Sunday. I hope the body can take it!
weighed when i got up no change on last weeks start weight so that's good considering the amount of home made wraps i eat on Saturday
Would you believe it all those weeks of training in the rain and nothing the weather warms up and i come down with a cold that left me feeling tried and drained so going have a rest week this week and see how i feel on Friday
Your probably taking the sensible option Toby, I'm a little more fast and lose with my health (some might say i'm an idiot! lol). I too have a bit of a cold, and Belfast is not getting the much advertised "heat wave". It was warm and wet last night, nevertheless I braved the elements and was out and about for 2h 30m covering 11.5 miles including "Extreme Parkrun". Fortunately, apart from stiff legs I am suffering no further ill affects this morning.
Binned the run this evening been working out all day in 30+ and the thought of banging out 6km's in the gasmask this evening just seemed too much...just going to consider it my rest day today....
But the g/f is going to drop me off somewhere down the motorway tommorow morning on her way to work so I'll go for a 12 or 13km early tommorow morning...
Hope everyone is having a great week..keep those piggies in !!
just checking in still feeling under the weather so no run yet have to say all I've done for the last to days is sleep
Just been out and run 11km, nice to be out in the cool of the morning... have a great day everyone!
Wow booktrunk thats some going...
