I actually mamged a run this am, so was going to rename this thread "back on the straight and narrow"
No booze last night, which is good, but was nor my personal choice
Ran about 3 miles
So it COULD be worse
EP, go for a run now, and then enter Reebok before you can think about it
Ill be there if Im not at the hospital

Good luck with the run
Having a rest day tomorrow because of the GNR (help)

Morning all! Did my usual 2 miles this morning, at 9.5 mins per mile pace. I want to do Brighton (some hopes - 10K!!!!), but it's on a Sunday again. Why is everything on a Sunday?

Morning all. My name's Velociraptor and I am a night-time fridge-raider.

Woke up at 2am with stomach screaming for food and had a 100g bar of chocolate before going back to sleep. I know it wasn't a dream because the wrapper was at my bedside this morning. No less ready for breakfast as a result.

Go for it, EP. Benz, see you on Sunday. I'll wear a thistle and carry a copy of RW under one arm and a bottle of gin under the other. Which brand do you prefer? Speak now, or it will be Sainsbury's own label cos I'm a cheapskate.

Teaching today. Just had a message to say students got lost and are currently trying to get back out of Walsall. Beats "I fell asleep on the bus and a drug addict tore up my homework", I suppose. Lunch being provided - hope it's curry.

Hello All. I've been missing you all the last 4 weeks. Been and done little brother's wedding and been and now back in the office after 2 weeks working away. Some of you may remember me moaning about ITBS, been doing swimming and cycling to keep fit and am hoping all is well for GNR on Sunday. Given I'm not road fit I'm going to tag along with the RW 2:30 pacers ... I like the idea of running and walking! Weight has remarkably managed to only increase by a few lbs I'm back over 12 stone but it ain't a disaster.

By the way, Cath, couldn't believe it when I opened new edition of RW and there you were!

I haven't felt so triumphant since I managed to convince my practice partners that Theodore Dalrymple was MY pseudonym!

Serious distance runners NEED chocolate for the iron and the antioxidants and the...well, never mind the rest, it just tastes nice. Even The Supreme Paula admits to indulging. It's just that my definition of a square of chocolate is two bars placed side by side.

OK, the girl on the cover hasn't got my face. But she's got my shoulders and my abs, and that will do for now.

Oh I feel sooooo fat today. Going out for a run now with my 'fat clothes' on - baggy jogging bottoms/long baggy t-shirt... it's not a good day today..! At least the sun is shining though.

She -- Oh boy, tell me about it! I nearly fainted when I saw it. Nice of RW to go about a roundabout way of adding support though :)

Oh, I'm incredibly fat today. No breakfast, sat at computer all morning and ate 2 bags crisps and a 50g bar of chocolate - me chocolate! (sigh) Oh well... I suppose next week I'll be back to eating next to nothing anyway :)

Hi Michelle, have a good run,
dont feel too bad your not on your own,
I have put the usual miles in but put on 3 pound in in week, whats going on !!!!!
Bet it was the lager the other night, naughty boy!!!!!!,
I have just had my run I feel great now!!!!!

I wouln't feel too guilty, I often wake up at 2, 3 or 4 in the a.m. with a craving for chocalate and, while I know I shouldn't, proceed to consume (usually) over 1000 calories worth. My will power to stop seems to be much reduced at them there small hours.

From your recent post this must make me a serious distance runner because I NEED this chocolate!!

Afternoon everyone,

Just got back from taking hubby for a full medical which completes our agreement (the deal was I had to get checked 'cos he thought I would have a heart attack from all my running and then he would too, just because he's getting old and fat!). Came away with a good report apart from being 1 stone overweight. He tried to bribe the nurses into doing 2 reports - a really good one for me to see and then the real one!!!

Have been healthy this morning and lunchtime, just porridge, fruit and then veggie couscous so still got my halo so far!

EP you can't chicken out of Brighton now YOU AGREED yesterday so get that entry form in. Benz, great, hope you can make it. Sassie, I don't know why they do races on a Sunday - can't you do an extra early service and then come along later? ;-)

V-rap, I wish I had abs!

Good luck to everyone doing the GNR I'll be cheering you on via the TV.

04/10/2002 at 13:48
Oh bother, forgot to say Michelle, why don't you come along to the Brighton 10k or is it too far?

Anyone else in that vicinity please come and join us - there are several of us braving it (of varying abilities and sizes!)

Hi guys,
I did my run - or should I say I huffed and puffed round the streets for 40 minutes, getting redder & redder... Susie - Oh I'd love to do the Brighton 10K with you all, but I'm rehearsing all day on the 17th..shame! I'm doing a 10K this Sunday & a 10K next Sunday too though! Have just eaten 2 hunks of toast and marmalade - YUM.. I want some more, but I'm going to resist and instead, will go out and buy my cousin's get well card..! How are you all doing food/exercise wise today?

Well, Michelle, after chocolate at 2am it can't get much worse!

Grotty chicken sarnies for lunch - resisted the nasty little individually-wrapped cake bars and had a handful of Hobnobs instead. They taste healthier even if they're not.

Swimming later as no more running before the GNR. Meanwhile...teaching, and trying to ignore pangs of hunger. Suspect a lot of toffees will go down the big red hill before I get to the pool. I think my body thinks I've given up running (despite 6.6 miles yesterday) and is trying to head for set point. Let it try. The GNR should see it off.

Back to work!

V-Rap - were they dark choc Hobnobs?? My favourites... haven't had them for ages.. want them NOW! Best of luck to you for Sunday for the GNR - you will probably need lots more chocolate before then for energy!! Mmm..do I need chocolate for the 10K on Sunday??? Yes I believe I do!! Might go for a walk later this evening.. I caught sight of my backside in the mirror in the bedroom and for a moment, thought someone had stuck the picture of the rear-end of an elephant on there.. where has my pert little peach gone???!! Heading down to reach the backs of my knees by the looks of it... ho hum... where's those hob-nobs??

The female of the species are a strange lot :o)
04/10/2002 at 15:23
What time does Brighton start guys?
04/10/2002 at 16:33
The Hobnobs were the plain variety. I like chocolate and I like biscuits, but I prefer to eat them separately.

I say "were" because the students have been very helpful in ensuring that I won't suffer the temptation of driving in rush-hour traffic with an open packet of Hobnobs in the car.

Michelle, you don't really want a pack of chocolate Hobnobs. You want a...OK, what have you got that's healthy? An apple? A fresh carrot, lightly peeled and dunked in tomato salsa? A boiled egg? A single chocolate Hobnob, eaten slowly?
04/10/2002 at 16:36
Luckily for me V-Rap - all I have in is 'healthy' fruit, fruit, fruit.. Although I really do fancy some chocolate. I think it's cos it's the TOTM..no, that is a lie, I ALWAYS want chocolate, regardless...! But I am gonna be strong and resist the temptation to go and buy some.. I am going to save myself for tonight when I am gonna have a glass of bubbly..! Or, maybe a Baileys which has about a million calories I think!
