Hi and bye - stuck in work today giving a training seminar and although I don't mind doing them a 6 day week does seem long, especially as I'm off to East Anglia on Monday to do another one.
Not looking good for Sunday plod at moment so will have to hope I've perked up a bit tomorrow. Should be doing about 11 miles but will probably end up doing about 3!
Well off home now - cant' even relax with a bottle now as fast other half coming home tonight after a year in Japan so will need picking up!
See you all sometime Tuesday....possibly

Hello all

Well done, XB, on your 12.9 miles.

T1- are you up to running today yet?

I haven't done anything since Tuesday. My throat's still grumbling away, and I've a stuffy nose on top of it.

Hopefully I'll be OK for club training on Tuesday, but I could have done without this virus at this stage of the proceedings. I really don't feel I could run 1 mile at the moment, let alone 10!

Hubby's just got over a similar bug, and he's back on form after 1 week of training.

I hope my recovery will be as speedy.

Happy plodding everyone

Hi Penfold here (DM's partner) and I've just been for my first plod of the year and it was great! 30 mins, about 3 miles but I wasn't sure how far I'd manange - 1 min walk at half way...Yipee! Had a rotten virus since before Xmas and for the last couple of weeks have been telling myself "I'll go tomorrow" - well, did it today - Hurrah!

Hi, anybody there?

Had a really lazy day today. Done nothing much and eaten lots of bad things. feeling guilty now. Still haven't fiven in to the ciggies cravings - 9 days.

Will go to gym tomorrow and have a run on treadmill to get rid of some of the guilt from today.

Whats everyone else been doing?

Thanks Sassie,
Nearly caved in when we went to the pub for lunch today,alcohol really weakens my resolve but managed to stay determined - sort of.
Weather seems to be taking a turn for the worst this coming week and I am finding it a bit hard to get motivated to get outside in the air for a plod in this cold wind. any tips?
22/02/2004 at 17:27
is this like a training thread for even slowere than plodders - or even ahem brisk wa8kers ?

want somewhere to post my sporadic efforts to get going again - managed a couple of briskish walks of 20-25 mins last week and today went out for 45mins brisk -
no intention to r8n or wa8k/r8n yet - although it feels like its lurking again

Hi there. Yes, run, walk/run, walk, anything that keeps you moving is talked about on this thread. We are all plodders of the slower variety.
22/02/2004 at 17:35

join the club.

Don't worry. You will get better at it. I am a beginner for the second time - I've had a break for a year and lost all fitness now I am run/walking again but improving. Just keep at it regularly and you will soon see the benefits.

me too. i stopped outside once the weather got colder and my job took over. first 2 runs so far haven't been too bad.

Have been plodding on treadmill since I started again, only been outside a couple of times but really need some motivation to get out there and do it. Its just that I find it so hard to get the breathing right when its cold and windy.
22/02/2004 at 17:50
hmmmm....its an internal shock to the system when you breath in the freezing air!
22/02/2004 at 17:54
Yes,my lungs just seem to stiffen up amd I can't get a full breath in. I just end up panting. Don't have that trouble when I run inside. Roll on summer. Brown legs in shorts and sun on face. Nice to dream
22/02/2004 at 18:00
lol.... only then you'll hear everyone talking about how its too hot to run and how they have to run early morning/late evening to avoid the heat!!! can't please everybody!!!
22/02/2004 at 18:03
Off to watch tv now. keep plodding, dream of warm summer sunshine, singing birds and NO WIND!

I plodded on the treddie
Run walk
2 hours and a bit
22/02/2004 at 18:43
Well done Hippy. Used treaddie for some runs when training for marathon. I think longest one was about 1hr 50mins. I got so bored I couldnt stand it any longer. It is usefull for this weather though. I would love to get outside but I'm waiting for a nice calm day so I will be on treddie tomorrow. Couldn't last 2 hours. So far I've managed 50 minutes
