Thanks K80 and against the usual long run weekend (when I can go up 2Lbs) I lost for the week just a half though

Yes mikasa it's cheating Let us know the outcome tomorrow.


Harsh! But true... Not bad though, only added 0.4lbs so only 1lb lost this week.

Went for a 5k run before breakfast yesterday and then later walked about 5miles. Another run today at lunch.


EKGO, well done for a new PB!!

A nasty bout of sinusitus has knocked my initial progress for six, starting again with a weigh in and reassessment of running strategy at the weekend. Still waiting for spring, would make things so much easier if it was nice out.

1Lb off last week but picked up a back injury Ironically moving the treadmill with a week before the great welsh marathon, all stretching for me this week and fingers crossed for Sunday

Gentle parkrun Saturday, and a nice speedy 6 miles yesterday evening, attempting to overcome the effects of the final kids party of the Easter school holidays. I was just cutting up the cake to give out at the end, when one of the parents, who is a professional baker, arrives with all sorts of tasty treats to give to us ARRRRRRGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

Oh well, focus on the training this week. First multisport event to look forward to on Sunday (short aquathlon).

How did you get on at the weekend Grant?

Well done on the loss EKGO, sorry to hear about your back. Hopefully it'll sort itself out before the marathon.

Dan - good running. Just stay away from the goodies!!

Not a very successful week for me. Only went for 2 short runs and couple of walks. I didn't keep to my healthy diet either but managed to stay the same so it's ok. Short lunch time run today so a good start to the week.

Hello, can I join? I've got a stone to lose. I'm resting and building up slowly again after completing the Paris marathon just over a week ago. I lost four stone in thr year and a bit since January 2012, but put a few pounds back on again whilst marathon training.

I don't really know what I'm doing, diet wise, I guess just running, eating clean (ish), and not eating when not hungry.

Do you all weigh in once a week? On the same day or different days?

Hello and welcome holeymoley - love ya monica.

Well done EKGO you didn't put anything on from your marathon last week... hang on are you doing another one next week????

Mmmm Dan a grateful parent who just happens to be a professional baker? That's got to be a dream. No mention of weight there though Dan?

Well done MIkasa - no gain in weight is a win in my eyes

Grant, you can't wait for spring - it may never happen.

I couldn't stand on the scales today. Honestly I have grade 2 groin strain and sitting on the scales would just not give an accurate reading. You can all visaulise me extending and retracting legs and leaning back and forth to obtain acceptable result

K80 sounds painful, keep stretching out as bad as it sounds it will speed up your recovery, and yes Great Welsh Marathon on Sunday I have three consecutive over the next three Sundays, so I expect to maintain weight for the next month, and in May I have another three consecutive ones.

Dan baking is one of my weaknesses, problem is, homemade bread is just too nice

16/04/2013 at 21:42
Mmm homemade bread....

Weighed in after my marathon, 3lbs up. After 5 days eating like crazy in Paris and a week off running I'm not surprised - marathons really are no good for weight loss!

My focus now is to lose the last stone (actually stone and a half would be better but a stone will see me into a size 12...) before commencing marathon training again. That gives me about 7 weeks...uh-oh! I think half a stone is more realistic...

WOw ekgo - 3 consecutive marathons... How did you train for that? Have you done loads before?
17/04/2013 at 10:01

Holeymoley ..... Marathons do that to me too, annoying isn't it. I do Marathons on consecutive sundays as training for Ultras, I am not too disciplined in my own long slow runs so I do it this way. 

17/04/2013 at 10:46
Went to gym this week. Weight pretty much identical to what it was a month ago. May have to step up diet plans, esp as. Well might eat all the Easter eggs first!
17/04/2013 at 17:03

Late to this thread. Would like to lose 1 stone, currently run 2 half marathons this year with two more to come at end of May and August. Currently 14st 6 lbs.

Good Luck everyone.

19/04/2013 at 10:45

I've been so bad this week diet wise... Need to clean up this weekend. Have done exercise though, today's going to be thired run and I went for a little bike ride as well. But food is key so need to sort that out.

How's everyone else doing?

19/04/2013 at 10:52

Back on the wagon, and running going really well. Even sneaked out for a lunchtime run at work, up the local alp and back in Sheffield. Tomorrow is parkrun (hopefully all the speed freaks will be off to London!), and aquathlon on Sunday.Might actually make a 30mile week, which is the first time time for over a year I've done that.

19/04/2013 at 14:11

Hi all,

Thanks for restarting this Grant.  Just back from holiday in Oz and 40th looming so this is it!   Monday weigh in 44lbs to lose.......

20/04/2013 at 08:32

My slow introduction to running is definitely working. Hit 30lb lost today, since the start of the year.  Still another 30 or so to go, but all the trends point the right direction.

22/04/2013 at 06:41

Wow Rachel 30Lbs is pretty impressive, I had another Marathon on Sunday in South Wales so as per usual in a Marathon week I put weight on, mind you just 1/2Lb so can't complain it will be fluid and will be gone in a day. Quite pelased with that


22/04/2013 at 08:14

Great going Rachel!

As I earlier mentioned,mu mind hasn't truly been focused on this weight loss malarkey and  I kind of stuffed myself with all sorts of treats this week and paid the price in today's weigh in, +2lbs!  Onwards and upwards.
