A place to declare your weekly results
I've been in hiding away selfishly avoiding my club and the forums because I didn't have the stomach to be around running when I coudn't get out myself due to injury.
I'm back now, because I was able to do 4.1 miles last night, pain free. I have no shame! I've been resting up, worked out an appropriate warm-up\down routine, taped up the knee, and fingers crossed it seems to have worked. Foam roller is really painful by the way, ouchy.
Toby - congrats on the continued weighloss, you'll be a different man by the time you hit the startline for brighton.
Booktrunk - Big well done for all you efforts!
Will try not to be a stranger!
Well i actually got the 12 miles done today it will be the first time in 2 years i won’t be going into Christmas a long run behind well i say 12 i slight miss remembrance on how far the route i ran was and it turned out to be just under 13 it clocked up as 12.93 miles and the whole run took 2:08:48 giving me a pace 9:58m/m so the weight loss is paying off already as looking at last year’s run the time is the same but that was barely over the 12 mile mark
Spen great to hear from you sounds like you got a busy year ahead of you next year good luck with the 100 mile run
JBL3 know what you mean the last thing you want to do is be around runners when you can’t get out there yourself it just makes it just that more frustrating glad everything is Ok now and your resting up sensible did the trick
Book trunk well done you on getting under that magic 10st mark enjoy your Christmas
Hope you all had a happy Christmas running wise went out Christmas Eve and did 5 miles with the O/H and decided to get my LSR out of the way today which should have been 14 for me which turned into 16 miles the O/H had 3 to do so we started off together and did the first 2.5 miles and when she headed for home i carried on
got drenched a couple of times when it hammered down but the nice water proof jacket the O/H bought me for Christmas kept me nice and warm so all i have left week 3 is a 5 and a 8 mile run
No running yesterday as had to take the daughter back to Leicester so 5 hours driving just about wiped me out did manage to get out today should have been 5 as i was out decided to run into work to find out what i was coming into on Tuesday
i took the long way home as i didn't fancy running up the last hill the run turn out to be just over 7 ¼ miles out again tomorrow with the O/H for an 8 mile run as she has a 3 & 5 left of her week 1 training for Brighton she should have done the 3 last night but had a hard day at work and was late home never got around to it so has add the 2 runs together
i have my first weigh in after Christmas on Monday as there was no W/W meeting on Christmas eve
well 8 very wet and soggy miles done today O/H didn't enjoy it much as she had never been out when it was raining quite so heavily and despite dressing warmly got were wet and cold but all credit to her she stuck it out and we completed the run in just over 2 hours which looking back was 22 minutes faster than the last time we did a run of that length together
Well went to my first weigh in after Christmas at weight watcher must say got on the scales with some trepidation as in past years the weight has piled on but had a nice shock as i had lost another 3lbs which makes a grand total of 2st 1lb since i joined
Followed that by going out for a run got a bit carried away and ended up doing 20 miles took me 3:22:09 which is 10:01 m/m so not to bad for a first run of that distance and i managed to run all of it which was pleasing as in previous years i hit the wall at 17 miles and had to walk and last year i used a run walk to do the first one
Curly see from your post you’re from Bristol as well
Happy New Year everyone! I've been in hiding over the last few weeks I think - too much food and not enough running. Have managed a few runs though, mostly 10ks but a couple of longer runs in there too.
30th Dec was my birthday so I "treated" myself to a 7 miler in the rain, with hills, and sprints...
Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Year, and that 2013 brings you great runs, pain free running, and new PBs.
(Weigh day next week I think...)
well first run of 2013 done i did 10 miles 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
Hi all Happy New Year, I hope you had a good Xmas, and eating and drinking abit too much is not too bad and a good incentive to get out and run.
Tpoby3 well done another 3lbs, congrats. The 100 miler is going to be a real challenge, but got till August to get fit, although my first marathon is in 8 weeks. My training has been all over the place over xmas but got an 18 miler in, so starting back with strict plan from tomorrow.
Good luck everyone on your running and weight loss for 2013, take care
Spen nice to hear from you glad all is well and hope the training goes to plan
Hi everyone and Happy New Year to you all and trust you all had a great Chrimbo
Toby you are doing so well well done
Steph - and a big well done to you getting under the 10 you have no idea how jealous I am something I have been wanting to do for a while. I got down to around 10'2 when I first lost the weight from starting running and maintained it ok but over xmas I have put on 5lb and I have so annoyed I am more determined now to really push on and run more and shift the weight before I do Silverstone HM in a couple of months. Like you, I just want the scales to say 9 something
I did run over Xmas but the weather and floods really held me back hopefully they are subsiding abit now though
Got a few races I want to do over the coming 2 months so I will crack on and see what I can do
Happy New Year everyone.
Toby - Amazing, especially after Christmas period.
Booktrunk - I hope you stayed in the 9's after Xmas
Spen - I hope Mara trainig goes well from here on.
Words - I've been in hiding too, watching the scales head in the wrong direction lol
Boo - I hope the weather improves and you can get back on the road ASAP.
I've put on 8.5lbs over Xmas , and I am just a slither under a stone heavier than I was when I ran Dublin at end of Oct . I have started getting my eating discaplin back as of yesterday; I really hope it's a case of easy on easy off! Managed to do a couple of runs over the festive period, the longest being about 4 miles. My knee has been OK but my muscles always feel on the verge of cramp? Useless body!
Here's to a great 2013, if I can get healthy, I'm gunning for sub 20 5k, my dream goal for 2013 is sub 40 10k.
JLB3 - take it slow with the injury, some fast targets there for this year good luck. I am sure the weight will come off, it always takes longer to get off than it goes on, and not as much fun.
take care everyone
JBL3 - glad to hear your knees ok I'm shore your get the weight off Ok
I have always been 'overweight' but decided to really do soemthing about it. I was down to 17 stone in October having lost about 1 and a half but put it all back on again following an injury and time off. Shocked myself on 31st Dec when I weighed 18 stone 12 (120Kg). Started back on the 1st and joint a weight club next week. If I eat sensibly and exercise then I am hoping to be 16 stone 7 by my wedding in June. At that weight I know my moobs have gone and I have a much flatter stomach, will be glad to tell you my progress over the next few months.
Ian welcome to the thread yes do keep us updated on how thing are going i joined Weight Watcher about 10 weeks ago and have drop 2st 1lb in that time so weight clubs do work
Well I think I have lost 2lb so far actually got back to running club last night and loved it
Ian - welcome to the thread and yes keep us informed how it goes, I am sure you can do it
JLB - take it steady with the injury. Everything else I am sure you can do you always do well when you put your mind to it
well week 4 completed with an 8 mile run taking 1:16:23 giving me 9:16 m/m so dead chuffed
Booey well done on the 2lb gerat start
