Getting there Toby

12/07/2013 at 19:46

well got out for my run boy it was hot so split the run down again into three 5 mile loops and a 6 stopping after every loop for 10 minutes to take on water and lucozade and to cool down even had an ice lolly after the 3rd time around

Hoping i haven’t to burnt as i plastered the sun tan lotion on before going out

Morning all

off to  weight watchers and then afterward 10 miles if it real hot again i will split down into two 5 mile loops again

Will have to wear a t-shirt today as i got caught really badly on my shoulders Friday and they blistered so need to keep cover up until they heal

Ouch! Sounds painful, Toby. Be careful out there!

It's a little too warm for running for my liking, but I'm still going. I'm not getting as much running is as I would like for one reason or another, and I'm also getting a recurrent pain in my foot - it kicks in about an hour or so after every run, lasts for 12 hours or so, then goes. Strange.

Sounds like you're all doing OK. Stay cool!

Toby: OUCH!! You daft wombat!! I did that many years ago... Not nice be very careful!!

I staggered around 19k saturday am and felt faint and sick so just gave up then, toasty hot!

Diet wise i did my normal now, I have a good working week but blow it all over the weekend and seem to stay about the same weight overall no matter how much running or dieting i do, as I keep blowing it at the weekend   But spent Sunday at Trent Bridge watching us win the Test against Australia so was worth it.

Morning all, still very nice weather out there, though was a bit foggy this morning.

Completely forgot to weigh last week so got around to it yesterday.

The last time I weighed (14 days ago) I was a bit confused as although nothing had changed I had put 1 lb on, the first time I had seen any increase since I started weighing.  Anyway that was just a blip it seems, as I have lost 8 lbs in the last 2 weeks, so happy with that as I am still trying to lose quite a bit of weight.

Morning all

Well 10 miles for me yesterday as it was hot i broke it down into two 5 mile loops stopping in the house for a cold drink between the 2 loops have to say the heats playing havoc with my speed i was nearly 10 minutes slower today than a couple of weeks ago

went to weight watchers for my weigh in and have somehow lost another 0.5lb as i do exactly what booktrunk dose am good all week then Saturday bam it like my crazy head takes over and all self control goes out the window


16/07/2013 at 04:33

23/07/2013 at 03:58

Morning all

Morning everyone.

Very hard weekend for me (stag weekend drinking session) proved a major blip in my training but had to be done, and was one to remember!  On the scales yesterday and I had put on just over 5 lbs in the last week (all of which must be from the weekend as up until thursday night I was doing my normal thing). I didnt go nuts eating wise but there was a lot of drinking, 3 days solid worth basically with pretty much no time for sleeping. Hard work but great fun, lol.

So I'm now over that little hurdle in my training and back on track.  Hopefully it wont take me too long to shift this gain, though I lost 8 lbs in the 2 weeks prior to this, so my weight can go up or down all too easily it seems.

 Morning all

 Well 10 mile for me yesterday and no it was no cooler after the thunder storm i must say it felt like a struggle and i was expecting the splits to be poor but i have just down loaded them and to my surprise all but two were in the 8’s

 It took me 1:30:35 not the quickest by a long stretch in fact it’s just over 6 minutes slower than it was 6 weeks ago but comparing it to week 12 training for the GNR which is what i trained for this time last year I’m well over 10 minutes quicker

 Simon i know what you mean about the weight it's a constant battle for me I’ve only got to look at a cram cake and i gain 5lbs or that’s how it feels hope the weight comes off quickly for you

Hello all.

Weighed today, after putting that 5 lbs on during that heavy stag weekend last week, I was happy to see I have lost 4 lbs this last week, so back on track now after that little hurdle.

Toby - good going

30/07/2013 at 23:43

I've gained 4Ibs....have been doing a lot of gym/strengthening lately so that MAY be it, or just eating too much.

Morning all

hope the weight loss is going well

did 5 miles on Wednesday but have been resting up as we have a friend coming down from Cricklade today and were going to run part of the Bristol H/M course it gives me a chance to practice pacing her before the big day and her a chance to see how far she can run at that pace

this is the third time I’ve had ago at trying to get her under the 2hr mark we usually try when we run the Cricklade H/M the first year i help her knock 23 minutes of her time but last year she wasn’t really up for it and she drop of the pace

this year however she more determined as she wants’ to go sub 4 hr at Brighton this year we thought we have ago at breaking the sub 2hr at Bristol as it the first in a set of 3 we run very close to tougher in fact last year we run the Bristol, Cricklade and Swindon H/M on consecutive Sundays
