Hi.

Becky - sorry, no experience of that, so can't help. Hope you're back out running soon.

Booktrunk - a little fluctuation here or there isn't such a bad thing, and I'm sure you'll get the maintenance side of things under control quickly!

I'm taking an enforced break from running for a couple of weeks. Brighton Marathon on 14 April and here's me with what I think is Metatarsalgia - a pain in the ball of my left foot. I think it's just a question of RICE and ibuprofen, and I'm hoping it's not going to impact on the marathon...

It does feel unnatural to be 10 days out from the marathon and not training.

Good luck Words I hope it sorts itself out.  I've been off running way to much with what I now think is an ITB Issue so at the moment i'm running through it and trying to do the odd bit of self massage and it seems to be okish....  MK Marathon is 6th of May so looming on the horizon very soon... nervous

Words - I had nearly 2 weeks off before my last half and I really think it helped  I know a full mara is alot different but I am sure you will be fine - good luck

I have had a couple of little runs in the last few days, so getting back to it  

Looking at a doggie the weekend so I may have a four legged running buddy soon  cant wait

*waves* to everyone and hope your all ok

Hello again!

Back after a few days away up North with the family.

My foot still isn't right, but it is much better than it was last week, so I'm reasonably optimistic that I'll get round the Brighton marathon in one piece. Managed to get a couple of 3-4 milers in this week, and all seems well.

Booey - Poppy sounds adorable!

Toby - good luck for Sunday!

11/04/2013 at 10:16

Words - lots of luck with Brighton  fingers crossed the foot will be fine come the day  let us know how you get on

 

11/04/2013 at 11:25

Word hope your foot holds up good luck to as well on Sunday

11/04/2013 at 11:51

Toby & Words - good luck for sunday, I wish I was joining you take care and have fun

11/04/2013 at 11:52

First time poster on this thread.....started my assault on my weight on Monday, currently at 119kg and will post next Monday what i am then.

11/04/2013 at 14:13

KeefG welcome to the thread hope the weight loss gose well

12/04/2013 at 07:40

Hi all,

yes I'm still alive! Good luck to both Toby and Words for Sunday, I hope you both have a great day and great runs. 

KeefG - Welcome to the thread, you'll find plenty of help and support here

Booey - Enjoy your puppy

My weight loss has stalled recently but my running seems to be getting better, I ran 17 miles on Monday morning as part of my mara training. I then took part in the Gravesend Cyclopark 10k on Wednesday evening and managed a PB of 59.09, first time I've gone undfer an hour in a race. I'm very pleased with that. I've got 8 to do today and then 18 on Sunday morning.

Gary - hello! Glad to hear all's well running-wise. My weight loss has stalled as well - quite bizarre given the miles I'm racking up. What marathon are you training for.

Oh, and massive congrats on breaking the hour for a 10k!

KeefG - welcome! What are your goals - running and weight-wise?

12/04/2013 at 13:31

My goals are 110kg by 9th June which equates to 1kg per week lost, which in turn will enable me to train harder and be able to run further as I'm doing the Scotland Coast to Coast in September this year.

Day 2 has a 24km run up part of Ben Nevis and this is after 54km of cycling

At present i'm nearly at 5km, awful long way to go....

12/04/2013 at 13:33

Keefg an ambitious target but good luck, you will do it
