Minni v Dubai Dave
Dryathlon? I could be tempted......although I have never given up alcohol before, during my marathon training.
I like a drink or two, but I'm not a huge drinker...just a few pints a week. Would cutting it out completely make a big difference? My PB at the moment is 3:44, so to get down to 3:30, I'd be very tempted to make the sacrifice!
ST - good luck with the op
Minni......that makes me feel much better.........I talk a good 'going on the wagon', but I normally break after 2 weeks at the most.
Hi Paul, welcome to the forum....I have only just joined.....I'm not sure if you know this, but you have to read all 24,000 posts before making your 2nd post here.....well that's what they told me anyway.......have you come here to escape the nerves of the Target 26.2 forum
Hi Spoons....I'll think it'll be many, many months until I have as many forum posts as you!
My thinking exactly. I had 2 weeks rest after the Athens Marathon and last week was my first proper week back....just in time to start training proper next week.
In the past, when for (non-alcohol related) reasons out of my control I've had to miss training sessions, instead of letting them go, I've either tried to double up on another day or increase the mileage of another run - so I can get my mileage for the week completed.
Do others do this, or just let the run go and carry on?
Well that was the worse netball training ive been to, cancelled at the last min so I didnt manage anything tonight in the end except a rest day!
DD free wine...is that why everyones going skiing in Jan?
Thankyou ST, all the best for your surgery, i hope it all goes well and you get back in to training quickly.
Simon now thats a tough one it depends on if they tell me the truth or not. I use to work in Hull A&E, lots of people with stupid accidents and injuries presented there!
Hi Paul, i came on here almost straight away as even though I would love to get through to the last 5, im aiming for a sub 3:30 no matter what and thought speaking to like minded people on here would be enjoyable and helpful, which it has been, so thanks guys for making me welcome
Love the picture Zuvai! Nothing like a creative sign to raise a chuckle.
Minni a friend at work uses a similar app to monitor what she's eating and drinking. She says it's really opened her eyes as to what she's eating - she's lost nearly two stone since early summer just by sticking to a set amount of calories.
Shady if I plan ahead I usually try and run a double rather than miss a run, I'll juggle my week's session so I can do an easy run before work then speedwork on an evening.
Simon 25 miles south east of Newcastle has no snow, only seems to be higher ground around where I live affected. Icy tonight though.
I'm also in the 'little and often' camp, 3 meals plus 3 (or 4, or sometimes 5 ) snacks. Snacks being something like an apple, or a couple of slices of malt loaf. I notice people at work will eat what they've brought in for lunch, and a yogurt, and a piece of fruit or crisps or whatever, all at once. I'll have the same amount of food but spread it out over the day. I don't know how people can eat breakfast at 7am then last until noon without anything to eat!
Think I'll pass on the dryathlon... I once gave up alcohol for 3 months before Edinburgh Marathon and ended up running 4:15. Clearly doesn't agree with me
Minni - a little video here to get you in the mood for the weekend!
6 mile tempo run on tired legs, but I suppose anything that hurts that much must be doing you good??!!
Forecast for tomorrow does not encourage bike riding, so might have to do a double to get to work and back
Good luck ST
AA - don't worry, I for one am allergic to wagons so any time you fall off I will be there to comfort you......................
