2 MILES?! Yup thats right kids, I can't run at the moment without wanting to collapse and die! Just goes to show how important eating properly is!

Spent last night gorging on pasta, had a huge chunk of bread and honey for brekkie and have just had a ton of cous cous.... Let the experiment begin!

What happened, Jon? Have you been having a sneaky go at the Atkins diet?

Cheers, V-rap.

No, just been drinking a little too much and not eating enough! I'm a changed man now though... No more booze until... Urm... I decide I want a great big hangover again!

Well 2 miles beats my weekly tote of zero at the moment, I want to run but my feet wont let me :(

After all that food, you'd better do a good few miles tonight! Get out there. We'll be waiting for the report in the morning.

Or maybe you are coming down with something - be careful.

Confession time - I've run zero this week too. Climbed a mountain on Monday, but that's cross-training rather than running. Better set things right tonight!

Cheers, V-rap.

I'm still waiting for a blister to heal properly , maybe this would be a good time to start drinking and eating pizza ??

Managed a three mile trot on Monday. Very slow and not pretty. My God it hurt on Wednesday.
Come on young fella, if us old 'uns can do it!

Well, I started off well this week! I ran 2.5K on Monday and Tuesday and I ran 1.5K tonight in the gym but then I developed that "shattered body won't let me run" feeling - so I gave up. I'm having a day off from gym/exercise tomorrow (except doggie walks because they're for the dog not me). PLUS, I've eaten CHOCOLATE - something I NEVER do *sigh* But, that's PMT for you :)

Do you have an inflatable head?
15/08/2002 at 08:15
I'm glad to hear it's not just me. Haven't run since Sunday evening. Was going to to a 6 miler this morning but decided not to, because I really didn't feel like it. I am in the doldrums. I think it's terror as my first Half looms next month.

MartinH, I'm glad you asked that - I've been wondering myself. But an inflatable head is probably better than a wooden one ?

Well... Went out last night with all the good intentions of an 8 miler.... Five miles later I was accidentally back on my doorstep! Ah well, 5 is better than 2! Perhpas I'll do 8 tonight?
15/08/2002 at 09:30
I went out to do five...but ended up drinking six pints of Stella instead. Great preperation for a half don't you think

I haven't run since Saturday, I'm just getting over a cough and cold I aquired this week and it's a little over three weeks to the Great South Run and I'm so behind schedule! I'm still a bit wheezy and it will probably be Saturday before I manage a run. (I'm sure I've put on a couple of lbs on this week. Well they do say feed a cold, starve a fever!)

Firstly Cath, thanks for the laugh, I nearly choked on my Ribena Lolly (they're lovely - I buy them for the kids!) when I saw your inflatable head pic, couldn't stop laughing. Did you do that on purpose or did it happen by accident when you resized it to 120x100 pixels?

Anyway, I haven't done too bad this week, did a three mile interval session earlier in the week and the day before yesterday did a 7 mile cross country run, felt absolutely crap though!

In the interest of being virtuose (?) I have now officially given up drinking! last week I seemed to be bathing in booze almost every night! Now I'm on the orange juice and water thing... Lets see how long it lasts!
15/08/2002 at 11:46
I won't hold my breath Jon, its not an easy thing to do. I gave up for 3 months once.

Cath do you want that picture resized. If so mail me
15/08/2002 at 11:54
Don't offer to do that! It'll fail to be entertaining then!

Alcohol is evil... Follow my path to enlightenment!

Zilcho miles for me too, I broke a toe whilst away on holiday and have been told to expect up to 6 weeks away from running. I am climbing the walls and chewing everyone's head off...apart from my daughter today who got a 'B' and 2 'C's A Level results, what a star she about this running - how do others cope?
15/08/2002 at 14:42
I sympathise. But I have no reason as to why its been so bad other than I drank too much and I've been eating junk!

congrats to your daughter though!
