I think it's time they started handing out prizes to other professions, not just Vets.

Choisty - you have a new runbritain stalker.

Evening all - I don't really get the run Britain thing but I still try to use it! I don't understand the bit where it tells you how to change your handicap.

 Here is a picture of me and my chum before we set off to run 10 miles in the wind and cold across the South Downs! Mental I know!

Las year we dressed as angels - next year I'm thinking Christmas puddings. This could be quite a warm outfit to run in methinks!

Great pic there Emma!

I'm having a few days off running to recover and gonna use my 12 day free gym pass. Then back to starting marathon training. Any ideas on what I can do there to help my running? I'm thinking squats, leg extensions and the like (clearly with upper body stuff to because I need to work them for vanity purposes)

Oh, think there should be a special catagory for seconded probation officers. I might win something....

Hello all

Some great running going on here

Emma - love the pic, very festive!

BoD- careful with that P&D programme, they are intensive!

I have been doing some running but mixing it up a bit with rowing and doing some gym classes. Need to work on my core as well...don't have one at the moment! My marathon plan starts ion 24th Dec, having not run more than 6 miles for LSR since May, this might be messy!

Pick a treadmill between two attractive girls.  Voila! Instant form improvement and boosted speed.

Hey MWW: My plan starts on Christams Eve too. Christmas day is a rest and Boxing Day is meant to be the first proper session (can't see that happening)

Ten: I was attempting to show off on the weight machines, but don't thing they are considered to be 'macho' really. Maybe I'll put my running shoes on tomorrow and attach a dreadmill for a few minutes and then grunt away on free weights.  Me MAN!!!

Nice piccie emma.....hi to MWW good to see you back in training soon!!!
Just skated down to the office, put the Inov8s on this morning as very dodgey under foot..........
PICTURE FROM TEN come on you must be James Bond or something to not want to put your picture up
I am now stalking those on Run Britain who I have worked out names for. Feel free to stalk me. The only thing with run Britain is that you can only put your miles in for the week. On Runners Forum UK you can put in shoes, weather, time of day, times of the run and mileage, type of run. But I guess for you racers Run Britain gives you your handicap etc. Time for a coffee me thinks. Have a good day all.

Hi MWW - nice to see you again - hope things have settled down a bit for you?

Ten - picture...picture...picture....

Em - don't worry about that bit - just ignore it!

Bo - you've got the general idea - doing a whole body workout will benefit you so don't stress too much. Try to do something for every part as your body works as a whole unit - unfortunately strengthening one part at the expense of another may just lead to an imbalance.  Get one of the instructors to do you a head-to-toe workout - just make sure you swap from one area to another between exercises e.g do triceps extensions, then squats, then lat raises, then calf raises, then abs, etc etc - doesn't have to be a long sesh!

2-0 Ten come on get your picture up and then we can see you sweating at your core exercises while eating a bacon sandwich Just done another session of core exercises.

James Bond?  More like Worzel Gummidge.

My picture is already there!  Unfortunately the flash didn't go off, and it was taken against a grey background.

My forum doesn't show avatars for other people.  Is there a setting somewhere?  I might consider adding an image.  One day.

Haha - is it bad that I actually run faster when I think people are watching?? Always speed up when a pretty girl is coming the other way...
