A place to declare your weekly results
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
i have to say i feel most strange it’s a Saturday and i haven’t got to go out with O/H for a run she only had a 3 mile run today which she’s taken herself of for so I’ve had a nice lay in this morning got to say i could get use to this have a few niggles which i hope will sort them self out next week as i only have a 5 and 4 mile run left which i may do Monday and Tuesday to get them out the way then rest up till Sunday
We catch the train Friday morning and so are hoping to be able to collect our numbers on Friday afternoon and then have a good look around the Exbo
went to W/W yesterday weigh in went OK and although i lost a 1.5lb am still around the 10st 7lb mark which is what i want to be for Brighton though Thursday will be a test as were going to an all you can eat Buffy restaurant as it the O/H birthday then up early Friday to catch the train to Brighton
runing wise just 5 miles yesterday leaving just one more run till Brighton took it nice and slow and with no Garmin on as it's in my suitcase i have no idea of the time just enjoyed the run
Yippee we are getting the dog her name is Poppy she is a Springer and nearly 4 years old get her later in the month after our holiday.....so excited, fingers crossed I may be able to run with her
I have been very slack and done hardly any running I shall be out for one later

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!
Words - lots of luck with Brighton fingers crossed the foot will be fine come the day let us know how you get on
Word hope your foot holds up good luck to as well on Sunday
Toby & Words - good luck for sunday, I wish I was joining you take care and have fun
Boottrunk are you doing MK Marathon, I am also doing it
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.
KeefG welcome to the thread hope the weight loss gose well
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?
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....
Keefg an ambitious target but good luck, you will do it
