Couldn't sleep.... have a nice day all.

Morning, Cath. Hope you're all set for today. I see you and I missed a good party on yesterday's thread. Honestly! Can't turn my back for a few hours to do some virtuous exercise without everyone hitting the bottle.

I had a slightly early night last night and woke up early this morning so came to do some paperwork and somehow found myself logged on here. Must try not to log on when I get to work.

Been doing not too badly with my other addiction - only three Werthers in the past 2 days, and no chewy toffees at all. Trying to fill the gap with proper food.

Soon be time to wake the family, and need to part-cook a few onions for Kevin's school cookery lesson because I don't have any chives, which she wants to put in her cheese scones. Maybe they'll smell the onions, think they're getting a fry-up, and jump out of bed. In my dreams.

Go well Cath. Busy day today, late night coming up and then have to get daughter and two friends to school in the morning at 5.15!!!!!!!!!!! in order to be bussed to the Channel Tunnel for the inevitable Somme visit. I must have a sleep this afternoon.

Morning everyone
Just ploughed through last night's posts. Hope there aren't too many sore heads this morning. Wonder if those 6am runs happened?

Benz, have you found the RW you were looking for? Might have a copy of it if your one doesn't turn up, I tend to hoard them.

Morning all,
I got up at 6 this morning and went for a run, Another 2 1/2 miles. feeling pretty good. To be honest i was feeling really good at teh end, i was not that out of breath. Which made me feel good. I am going to carry on with this distance for the rest of the week, then i will add an extra 1/2 mile next week.

Have a good day all

Glenn, I hope you've sent your Suicide Sixish application off because I've just stuck a stamp on mine. Wonder if anyone from the Fat Club would be interested? Gordon! GORDON! There's a GREAT race for army boys going on in the West Midlands on November 17th. Benz, you'd LOVE this one. Everyone - Glenn says there are lots of hills and steps - good for toning that butt up. Not sure how close it is to home, but all welcome to partake of some dripping flesh in the Raptor cavern if it's close enough.

Good morning!

I went for 12 min run this morning (about 1.1 miles)- short run as I am making a comeback after about 2 months of not doing much. Did the same yesterday.

Anyway I was reading the late Fat Club posts from last night -very entertaining - thanks! - but being a bit of a newbie around here could someone tell me what the dark side is all about?

Hope you all have good runs today (or rest days!)
10/10/2002 at 08:53
Morning all you earlybirds.

Good luck Cath. Try to think yourself fit.

Bet there are some hangovers around this morning judging by last night's thread!

I'm on day 4 of my back on track eating plan and still feel resolute. This will of course come to an end this evening which is traditionally our curry night out at the local Indian. Even if I manage to restrain myself on the food, there's always the wine and whisky to take their toll! Only 4 days to go and I can go back to the gym and try a gentle jog. Although it's only been 3 weeks since the op. I feel as if I've lost loads of fitness. Still, I expect I'll soon get back into it again.

Good luck to everyone weighing in today.

Michelle, hope the news on Steve isn't as bad as we suspect. Thinking of you.

Welcome Scarlet and well done on the run. Just take it slowly and you'll soon get back into it. Beware of the Dark Side, it's a dangerous place!
10/10/2002 at 08:57
Susie, you are permitted to drink lassi and water with your tandoori chicken and plain boiled rice :-)

Well done so far. You may be surprised how little fitness you'll have lost in those 3 weeks, and your body soon remembers how well trained it was.

Morning all

Mad a stake and ale casserole last night (marvellous) made a bit too much so having it again for lunch (Even more marvellous) better than sarnies any day


10/10/2002 at 09:18
WW was that a typo or have you got Mad Cow disease ;-)

V-rap, sorry to be thick but what's lassi? (the only Lassie I know is a loveable doggie). I hope you're right about the fitness - I really am raring to go but hubby is being firm with me (no rude comments please) and sticking rigidly to what the Specialist said.

RH - I’m dyslexic and cannot spell – or it may have been an anti-vampire stew

No jokes about jointed sheepdogs being found in restaurant freezers, please. Lassi is a yogurt drink that is served in most curry-houses. It's much better than beer or water for taking the fire out of your mouth when you're eating curry.

Morning all,
I'm having a truly terrible time.. good eating plan has gone out the window and I'm comfort-eating on chocolate and jaffa cakes at the moment.. my lovely cousin Steve is undergoing his surgery this please think of him.. Wasn't going to do anything today other than feel sorry for myself, but my friend has just rung and is making me go running with her. I feel dreadful and have had no sleep hardly, worrying about my cousin - a big, fit man who has never smoked in his life and is always in the gym..not bloody fair is it. Anyway, hope you all have a good day - think I might be on the alcohol tonight too!

Michelle, sorry love. Bad call for Steve, most unfair. Thinking of him all day. Don't expect the run will cheer you up but may occupy your mind and body for a while. You have permission to eat and drink as necessary to get you though this.
10/10/2002 at 10:14
Michelle, I'll say a prayer for Steve on my run this afternoon.

Do have your run but if you're worried and have had a sleepless night you're going to want caffeine and sugar and there isn't any point beating yourself up about it.
10/10/2002 at 10:31
Michelle, sorry about Steve, I'll be thinking of him.
10/10/2002 at 10:36
I hope you are paying attention out there. V-rap is right - the Suicide Six(ish) is perfect for runners with a Hobnob problem. No pressure to finish in any particular time, you can't possible run all of it anyway, and those steps are GREAT for the butt and thighs. There are even cold water treatments for those of you who prefer alternative therapies :-). It's not far from Dudley.

More info, including a map, on:

Repeat the mantra: "Brighton is too flat..Brighton is too flat.."
