Not sure really but went to New York for xmas and think slep awkwardly on the plane and was a bit stiff. then day before new ywears eve i jumped out passenger side of my daughters car to run round to drivers side to park it for her (she was learning but just passed her test last week) and i couldn't straighten up! i was like old woman for about a week!!! had to take 10 days off training and then come back slowly. this was first appointment i could get!

17/01/2006 at 12:43
Yep, so i'm officially the oldest and the slowest!! get that zimmer ready Lazer as i'm going to need it!! Chris, he will sleep eventually...my youngest took 6 years of being in our bed though!! (he's 9 now) and then they get to teenagers and you can't get them OUT of bed! my eldest would sleep all day if i let him, although he has just started uni so it's up to him now! chris are u going to do the Brighton? anyone else?
17/01/2006 at 12:48
im think about doing the brighton, but i also thinking about doing the adidas half at silverstone. I would go for the bath half but thats full :( its only a 5 minute drive from me.
17/01/2006 at 13:30
yup...going to apply later this week for brighton
17/01/2006 at 14:33
i may join you then Chris - it will be my very first race!! think i may get round a half in about 2hr 25 ish. what about you? does it go all along the sea front?
do you live that way?
17/01/2006 at 14:45
Anyone doing silverstone? that gona be a milestone for me....nice easy 3 today - not too taxing, but feeling that strain in my legs a bit.

What are people eating for this effort by the way? im mostly eating complex carbs but need something with a nice high GI for just after my runs.
17/01/2006 at 15:06
goes along the seafront to Hove I think...I live up in between Gatwick and Croydon so not too bad a journey and fish and chips for recovery!
17/01/2006 at 15:12
im eating mostly what i like during th day, but nothing 2 hours brfore i train, during i have Isotonic drinks with water, then straaight after i have a bowl of pasta with icecream as thats supposed to put your body in the "anabolic" state (muscle repair) faster. Todays training is:

Interval: Max 75, Walk
3, Max 65, Walk 3
Max 45 Walk 3mins
Repeat X6

i'm a bit peed as chiropractor says i can't trin today as i may be a bit delicate after she has realigned everything. so chris i will have to miss the easy 3 and catch up with you tomorrow - think its a 4 miler isn't it? i have to be a bit careful what i eat considering my age (he he!!)as i don't want to put on any weight! so i have cereal for break, chicken or tuna salad and fruit for lunch and then fish or chicken with veg and rice or pasta for tea.
17/01/2006 at 15:56
nooo...5 miler tomorrow! went to do the 3 miles today but calf is aching massively after sunday. did nearly 3 miles and had to stop.
will hopefully be ok for tomorrow...am down to do the 6 miles in Hyde Park!
17/01/2006 at 16:00
take it ou live in london then chris? i still havent booked a room at the hotel for the marathon yet!!! opps! as i live in the south west! lol
17/01/2006 at 16:31
I'm staying in hotel in canary wharf cos my husband works there and arranged it - it's then about 5 stops on the DLR to greenwich park...OMG i feel scared now just talking about it!! I'm in Bedford...was hoping there was something in the air here (Paula Radcliffe) that might make me run faster...but no!
17/01/2006 at 16:33
if it does, bottle it up and sell it on E-Baym, whats the hotel??? are there any places left?
17/01/2006 at 16:44
i think its the four seasons - got a swimming pool/sauna/massage etc which hubby booked as a treat. thee was plenty of space when we booked, probably because its an exec/business type hotel. gotta go and do some work/see clients now so will log back on tomorrow...byeee
