I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
SC the Mk1 version seemed to be doing alright when I last looked, you give me something to aspire to.
I had an odd day feeling thin and toned but knowing that the scales had told me I had put a few pounds back on in a very short period of time. Then I felt fat and all was even and normal, but I am working on good habits to replace not helpful ones.
Looks can be deceiving CJ, especially when you've had several years of practising hiding things.
Weight is a strange thing CJ. I'm feeling huge today which doesn't tally with my skirt being so lose that I have to keep pulling it up. But at least weight isn't one of my hang ups and I don't tend to weigh myself so have no idea whether I am gaining or losing.
Shouldnt you change your username then SupeCaz given your new name?
Nah, I'm still the same person, just with different goals
I wonder how people cope with not running? I ran Cardiff Half the other week and had such a buzz from it that I think I crashed really badly afterwards. It is a while before my next 'organised distance'. The anxiety and depression could be caused by that (adding to other things of course)
My Doctor said it is because I have gone cold turkey and the endomorphins have stopped and like any brain chemical they are addictive.
How does everyone else cope with having to take time of from running - if they are injured etc?
Hi, welshgje. Just catching up after a busy few days.
I guess if there's one way in which I'm fortunate it's that I've never to date had a lengthy lay off through injury. I do constantly find it difficult to get out there and run though that I rarely achieve the all-important buzz these days. I have found that what works best for me though is leading runs with the running club. If I'm able to concentrate on other people's running it means it succesfully takes my attention away from myself and I can run OK.
