A place to declare your weekly results
Never went out for a run yesterday in the end but did a gentle gym session in the garage inserted must keep this short today as have to help Mrs Toby 3 tidy the house up for next week as it the sons 18th birthday and were having an open house and if i stay here to long i get shouted at she may be small but as the saying goes don’t make her angry you won’t like her when she angry
A change is as good as a rest.
Good luck with an open house party. Sounds like you and your Mrs will have your work cut out for that one ow er.
well to our shame we've just finished the house work it's the first time we've had a chance to have a really good go at it what with all the training we been putting in took us a little longer than both of us expected
booktrunk good luck with the 20miler hope all gose well
Hope it goes well for you boottrunk.
Weight loss wise, I'm still at the 13st5lb, just going to try one or two new things to try and lose another couple of lbs.
Not much else to say. except that after about 6 weeks training although not lost much weight yet, but am starting to feel the benefit of the jogging. I just come home from college a lot better, instead of feeling tired all the time.
Hope your doing ok toby3 to?
as long as your happy with how it went, thats great news about your personal challenge at that distance
Well done to all you runners and losers!
BT & JLB - congrats on the looooong runs.
It was the Swansea Bay 10k today, and that's the third time I've run it. I had planned to take it easy and not try for a PB, but ended up setting a new 10k personal best anyway!
I ran with (and partly paced) a friend who smashed a brilliant three minutes off his PB, finishing in around 54 minutes, so a good day all round! I have a sneaking suspicion that, if I'd pushed it, I could have beaten 50 minutes, which is something I'd like to achieve by the end of the year. Can't think about that now, though, as all thoughts are on Berlin and the small matter of a 26.2 mile run next Sunday...
Another 2lbs off, so that's me losing half a stone in three weeks - and only another 3 to go before my BMI hits "ideal"...
Have been reading but not posting, well done to everyone on their respective runs and weight loss. I've been a bit in and out of running recently but have put in the effort over the last couple of weeks, had a 14.26 mile run this morning. It wasn't fast and it certainly wasn't pretty but it was done! Weight wise I weighed myself after the run and I was 13st 4 1/4lbs which is a drop of nearly 4 pounds since I last weighed. However, that will no doubt be back on again when I weigh myself tomorrow morning, enjoying some read whilst celebrating my 52nd birthday!
Waves to all.
well done on all the weight loss personally i havean't been near the scales for a while as was just getting to disheartened so i have no idea how heavy i am must weigh be for the weekend as i have the first of the 3 H/M this weekend
****** FROM ROLLS-ROYCE STAFF MAGAZINE ******
Sometimes it DOES take a Rocket Scientist!! (true story)..
Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields. American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the Windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers. When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow.. The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.
You're going to love this......
Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:
"Defrost the chicken."
lol I agree that is brilliant. I know there's a serious side to it, but you can't help just thinking about the astonished look on their faces.
Toby - brilliant! (And I work with some pretty bright engineers so I can relate to this!)
JLB - race plan? To finish...
Seriously, I'm hoping to maintain a steady pace that will let me cover 20 miles in three hours. Then it's *just* the 6.2 /10k to worry about. Not sure I'll get under 4 hours, but I'll have a damn good try!
Gary - nice to see you. Congrats on the weight loss. And hope you enjoy a very happy birthday!
Sorry for not noticing it was your birthday yesterday, many happy returns, better late than never.
I'm not going to say my weight today, but will see what happens over this week. My plan may just be starting to work.
Enjoy all your afternoon.
Words - fantastic time well done thats a great PB inprovement lots and lots of luck for Berlin
Toby - very funny I like that
Hi all just a quickie....been to the quacks today and he believes I have a Hernia of some form more than likey a 'sports hernia' and possbile tearing/damage to the adductor muscles in some fashion...so have been referred to the surgeon and looking like at least 3 weeks to see him...but on a good note....the way it works here is that once the surgeon thinks he can do something and the 'gas-man' is happy...I'm sliced and diced that day!...
It's been 20days since my last proper run and I hate it...it's not like I can do much else fitness wise swimming, running, bicycle, weights all strain the injury...I'll be a right oooompa loompa by the time this is sorted! buy hey..they are lots of people who would like to be in my postion I'm sure...so thank my lucky stars it's just a minor thing...good luck everyone...
So for now ...keep up all the good work....
