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!)

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!

Afternoon all

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...

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

23/07/2012 at 09:34

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

23/07/2012 at 10:12

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!

23/07/2012 at 12:20

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

24/07/2012 at 03:34

Morning all

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

24/07/2012 at 08:49

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.


24/07/2012 at 22:30
Blimey, you disappear from the thread for a couple of days and it suddenly gets busy! Plenty to catch up on but it looks like you're mostly doing ok - although one or two piggies need returning to the sty it seems...

Gary - hope the injury recovers soon.

Had visitors this weekend: one of my oldest friends who just happens to run 3hr30 marathons and 10 miles at 7min mile pace. He's also a fell runner. Probably not my best move to suggest a 10 miler with him on Sunday. It was, as they say, hell.

Got my revenge by dragging him and his kids up the highest point in the Brecon Beacons yesterday though...

Just got in from another 6k, and off for 7k tomorrow morning.

Will do my best to catch up with all your news soon!
25/07/2012 at 18:12

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 !!

26/07/2012 at 03:50

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

26/07/2012 at 09:13

Just been out and run 11km, nice to be out in the cool of the morning... have a great day everyone!
