Hi guys, went out yesterday and for the first time in ages, running felt good... Only 30mins but I hope now I can start building again. Oops, and had a sausage sarnie *blush!*

Rest day for me. Puppy slept from 10 till 5.55. Bliss! More work for Thursday's interview today. Starting to get nervous.........
29/10/2002 at 08:46
Got up at 5.45 and came into Central London, ran for round Embankment with only for half an hour for the first time, with only one very brief walk break because of a stitch!

Four weeks ago I never imagined I would get there so I am feeling dead chuffed. Next step is to cut out the brief walk break!

Was wondering about stitches though - what causes them, how to stop them etc as this was the only thing that stopped me running non-stop. Any advice very gratefully received.

Have a good day all - and good luck for Thurs Sassie!

Thanx Tortoise

You're welcome Sassie!

Apologies for over-use of word 'stop' and variations on it in previous message - will dig out thesaurus for suitable synonyms next time!

Hi y'all
I'm trying to cut down on carbs a little, but as I don't eat meat I am finding it a little hard to eat more protein. I don't class myself as a vegetarian, I eat what I want but I haven't eaten meat,chicken etc for years now, but alot of the time I just don't know what to eat so just end up eating rubbish. I have put on around a stone, which I need to loose before I can loose the other stone I originally needed to loose! HELP!!

Hi Fitfolk

cant believe you run before 7 am you peeps - is it dark -is it strange?

Hi TT- I have the same problem -gave up meat about 7 years ago but still eat eggs and fish a little bit - my protein intake is very low and I do try to up it but dont do very well at it - as I dont like cheese -so vege meals are a bit of a none starter!

p'raps theres some semi-veges who could give us some tips out there

Sassie - hi- whats the interview?
29/10/2002 at 12:25
oh and Torty- Hi

if you get a stitch try and stretch out your torso stomach and chest upwards when you run - I think its supposed to help- fortunately I dont get stitches

Hiya all,
Weighed myself this morning - I am back to what I was at the start of the Fat Club..!!! Oh dearie me...! Anyway, talking of veggie type foods - I'm the same - don't like those quorn/tofu type foods - YUK! I tried to cut down on my carbs a couple of weeks ago, but didn't have any energy at all and could barely put one foot in front of the other - let alone run! Haven't got any food tips I'm afraid.. just the same old boring - pasta/ jacket potatoes etc.. I eat fish and a little chicken too - so it's not too bad - but the Mr eats meat, so I usually end up having to do two different meals every night..! Anyway, I'm working tonight (so at least that'll stop me eating!), my kids drama class starts up again and I haven't seen them all since the Summer - so I'm looking forward to that - I've got a couple of new ones starting too. Sassie - glad the pup seems to have settled.. what colour is she?

Bune - the interview is for a job to have my own church, rather than being the curate as I am at present.

Michelle - Quinta puppy is black, which makes letting her out in the garden after dark quite interesting.

Veggies - having been both vegetarian and disgustingly healthy for almost twenty years (goodness - is it really that long?!?!?), I suggest quorn items and soya items. The Linda McCartney range is good. Remember to combine foods to make complete proteins as well. Wholemeal flour etc!

What is it with this protein thing?
we have it drilled into us that we 'have to eat our meat' I have never liked red meat and in the 36 years I have lived the only side effect is a slight anemia problem last year which is now resolved.
Canned tuna is versitile and if you aren't keen on it the taste can be easily masked. I don't eat animal protein every day and the processed foods we eat nowadays tend to ensure that we are consuming enough.

Thanks for the protein suggestions -
what i stuggle with is the protein rda which for me is between 60-80g depending on whether its 1g per kilo I am or want to be!
I eat a lot of grain/wholefood type carbs but reckon I struggle to get up to 20 -30 g of protein some days. If i do eat more I definitely don't get as cravy - but have just got into the habit of eating vegetable based meals and not adding a protein to it, although I did have lentil soup last night!
Im more of a 'lazy and i want it now!' cook and being healthily vege requires a bit more effort I guess!
29/10/2002 at 14:55
oh I'll fight the catz for the tuna a bit more often, and I could eat eggs more often than i do!
29/10/2002 at 14:56
I will lose 71bs by the end of November.
29/10/2002 at 15:10
that should read 7 not 71!

Hi all

Been at new client all day so first time posting. No running to day as per schedule.

REdiscovered shredded wheat so had 2 for breakfast. Very late lunch of reduced fat ploughmans but spoilt the effect by eating 4 BN's. Low fat quiche and veggies for dinner.

Protein, as a strict veggie of 21 years standing this is a constant problem. Personally I love raw tofu and will happily snack on chunks straight out of the packet. Other than that its beans legumes and seeds every day.

May be I should look at the windy running thread :-)

Baked beans on wholemeal toast is best protein boost I've come across.
29/10/2002 at 17:35
Im a strange animal - I have never liked baked beans either ( a pain when we get jackets with beans and cheese after hockey!)

but I did discover tinned sphaghetti with butter beans and carrots on toast - in fact there is fridays carbo rich tea!

like mediterrean beans - in spicy tomato sauce - i'm out for a greek on thursday so theres thursdays tea!

tonite its tomato soup and toast as it'll be late after training

sitting here in my training kit having just had banana and a cappo - i'll see how the energy is from that
