Longer lie yesterday and couldn't log on this morning.

Cold these last 2-3 days, but cracking sunshine with it.

Back to work today after a long weekend Got plenty running in though in lovely sunshine

Who is doing Glen Ogle then? Me, FFB, maybe(?) cragchick. Be nice to put faces to names

Wow FFB - that is a lot of food, and he will probably go home and have a huge dinner and dessert / snacks as well. He probably reckons though as he is cycling it is okay .

I know when I am doing a lot of cycling it makes me absolutely starving, after a long ride I can easily locust the cupboards clean . But, that would be after like a 50mile cycle, not a few miles commute to work.

Without wanting to sound 'fatist' or anything, I see an awful lot of middle aged guys, massive bellys, cycling, (and more and more these days on really really expensive road bikes), when they would probably be better on a mtb given their weight . I think to myself, fair play to them, they have probably been overweight for years and are cycling to get in shape, but then I see a lot of these same men stopping for the cake and chip shop cafe stop on their ride, and I have to think to myself, their belly is their worst enemy!! There is a lot of 'kidology' going on I think .

Cold out, just walked Geordie.

LOL TP - that's my husband. Goes out on his roadbike on a Saturday with the 'fatboys' as they call themself - although he is shrinking quite fast at the moment ... they cover 50-70 miles but do stop for a bacon butty half way around!!!

OMG to that food consumption though, made me feel ill thinking about all that. I have a sweet tooth which I indulge to a degree, but equally I don't eat enormous portions. All about balance, which is what I try and get across to my

I read an interesting nutrition article in a cycling magazine once that said 'Treats are fine, just dont live on treats' . Think that kinda sums up my attitude to it.

Cycling is bad though for making you feel starving, especially cycling in cold weather - I can totally understand your hubby wanting his bacon sarnie Cragchick .

I think I probably eat less now that I mostly run than I did when I was mainly cycling, which is kinda bizarre given that they say running burns more calories . Certainly for people wanting to lose weight I would say running will do it a whole lot faster than cycling, but if someone is very very overweight cycling is probably a better way to start exercising in order to avoid injury etc.

Cold and not quite frosty out. Decent running conditions, no wind

Morning Tri.

Still to properly catch up.

morning BM

another night off last night. felt it was needed, just been feeling exhausted since the weekend but definitely feel better this morning, finally feel rested.

Should manage some training tonight, planning intervals (long) at indoor track.

hopefully that goes to plan

Morning all. Very frosty here in both Cathcart and Bothwell, but another lovely morning. Got up half an hour early and did some weights. My current programme needs 40/45 mins so had to leave out a couple of sets for my back, but hopefully do them this evening after a run.

Just really enjoyed granola with fresh berries and banana for my breakfast now that I have done my 2 fast days

10/10/2012 at 10:04

Well another glorious day - we better make the best of it as it looks hideous for tommorrow .

Birkmyre - good to see you back online.

Andrew - no idea, sorry. You might be better asking on one of the London Marathon threads.

UTC - hope you get your energy back soon. That was quite a tiring race actually .

FFB - Fruit-tastic breakfast . I had, errrrr, two hot toasted crumpets covered in butter (Ooooo-Errr Missus) Oops!  Well, it is the Winter .

(TP must try harder to eat fruit ).

10/10/2012 at 11:17
Thanks tp a will do
10/10/2012 at 11:41

TP - LOL  very tasty, I am partial to a toatsed crumpte with loads of butter too

10/10/2012 at 14:07

Granola and fresh berries sounding yummy, bowl of muesli here, whilst yelling at kids to get out house for school, soooo glad hols start at end of week!

Absolutely stunning day here too - no frost but pretty parky. Nice 13 miles along the Speyside Way - Grantown to Nethy Bridge and back with a bit extra. Seriously flat though ... possibly flatter than the Dava Way if that's possible, scenery was glorious though so I could cope with the flatness! Legs felt fine after 8 yesterday so I'm happy!

Crumpets with melted butter and honey

TP: Good to be back online.

10/10/2012 at 19:54

FFB - so this fasting 2 days with no food ? I like my food too much!

Quite a nice day here, mild and sunny, legs a bit stiff for no good reason but 9 miles run slowly.

Good to have you back BM!

10/10/2012 at 20:48

Mmmm, granola and berries - lovely

Lovely here too Ran 5 miles rather faster than intended but was soooo enjoying it.

Elspeth, heard a 'whiff' of the S2S going ahead on the 2nd December, 'details to follow'. Unfortunately, we've already entered the Pentlands half that day 

10/10/2012 at 20:58

Elspeth, I love food too: I am a chef's daughter so food is a huge part of my life. It is not 2 days with abso;utely no food. You can have a small meal each day. I choose evening as it is easier.

8 miles this evening.

10/10/2012 at 21:10

Mrs Mac - I hope so, if you hear anything more can you let me know? Shame you're in the Pentlands same weekend though.

FFB - sounds pretty hard to me, I am not nice to know without my brekkie (or subsequent meals either!).

11/10/2012 at 06:45


FFB, not sure I could cope with 2 days of fasting either... hope you get enough out of it.

Felt much better yesterday and managed a decent interval session last night. Short run tonight and high impact aerobics with some core work. As long as today is less stressful than yesterday. Terrible day.
