I've never done a mara (never done a half yet either!!) - will FLM be your first?

No, did London in 2001 - very slowly because I didn't train in a consistent or coherent way. Was meant to do Reading that year but it got cancelled becuase of foot & mouth. Then, July after London is when I had my achilles rupture. I'm just getting back to running now after a long slow slog like Speedy is struggling through (you can do it too Speedy!).

Hopefully I'll meet you at Reading!

Hope so. Strangely I actually quite looking forward to it. Bad day though - my neice's second birthday plus it seems to be Mothers' Day. Sorry folks, sorry mum, I'm busy that day!

Evening all, no running today. Went to slimming club this morning. Lost 1.5lbs this week. Then on to a friend who had just moved up from Blackpool. The men had already emptied the van but as they had just had 2 journeys back and forward from Blackpool without a break were exhausted so we women had to rip up old carpets, clean kitchen and bathroom, move boxes, build beds and look after a 7 year old, 2 year old and 7 week old baby. Hard work. Working tomorrow unfortunately so run is off again. Will manage to do some work on the trainer when I get home though. I hate Sunday working. Leave home at 7am and not back till 5.30pm. What a way to spend a Sunday. Ah well good thing is I can't drink tonight.

'ello! Well done for the weight loss, that's excellent. Hope you're pleased.

Sounds like today could count as cross training!

Shame about tomorrow. Hope it means you get either double pay or extra time off! I should do some work tomorrow as I didn't quite get everything done on Friday. But I will get out for a long slow plod. Question is, whether I procrastinate over the housework I didn't do today or the work I didn't do on Friday.... now, which would I prefer to do??? Makes me think about rocks and hard places. :-)

How goes it? Run today?
30/01/2005 at 19:45
yes
7 on the tready
No real long runs this week, but did a total of 30 so i suppose that will do after last week
must try harder next week
30/01/2005 at 19:47
30 is quite a lot. don't beat yourself up! if you count last sunday you've done 60 in 8 days! That's definitely a lot.
30/01/2005 at 19:49
oh
i suppose so
But my legs are fine-theres no exuse really


We start again next week
theres always another week isnt there

methinks Hippo is something of a perfectionist....

and I am the same.

Hence I seem to be doing rather more miles than my schedule actually requires. I will force myself to rest tomorrow (repeat 100 times before I go to bed and maybe I'll believe it)

Hi folks, sorry not been on tonight. Had a really awful day. Left for work at 7am got home at 6.30 pm. Decided being a manager is no fun when a member of staff has filed a grievence about you. Have to see my boss tomorrow. I've done everything right so I hope I am in the clear. Nuff said. Tried to go on the trainer but only managed 22 mins and my legs turned very weak and I felt awful. Have tried to stay up byt having to go to bed now. Up at 6am again for work.

Hope everyone had a good day and I will catch you all tomorrow.
