For anyone trying to crack the 3h15 barrier anywhere in the world
OO - I get into jeans size 32 on a good day, 34 on a bad one. Between January and The VLM I usually lose about 7kgs, going down to 80-82 kgs (12st 8 - 12st 12), which is the aim this time, as well.
I am NOT going to get a Fat Boy complex.
Morning Fat Fighers! and I thought I was the only one on a diet
good news at the weekly weigh in this am, another 2 lbs gone, 11st 5lbs . Although it's interesting to report that it seems breakfast is worth at least a pound - my 'formal' weekly weigh in being performed pre-brekkie (but post loo trip) whereas on my sneaky midweek checks are after breakfast
I'm 5' 10'' with a 32'' waist btw. Makes me smile that this is one of the few places I can feel like a bit of a bloater
congrats on the win last night efc-col ...... dreams of a wembley visit over for FFC for yet another season
enjoy your long runs
Parkrun this morning and I know FW and MM are out doing one too but thought I woudl be brave and post first, so here goes: 17:55 at Bushy Park for 18th overall, got chicked and I thought it may be Liz Yellling but not 100% sure, will await official results.
Week was 57.68 miles and Jan total is now 232.83 which puts me #10 on RW challenge but I have done my long and tomorrow is off so expect to fall.
nice work fellow ParkRunners, Gul and PMJ - I had a last minute opportunity to do mine as younger son still asleep when it was time for us to leave for his football club at 8.20; he's been a bit peaky so thought it best to let him sleep ....
Not bad at all by my recent standards, with 19.03, although a 3.40 1st K was followed by 3.45 then 3.54 & 2 x 3.52. My 4 runs for the week are now done (23 miles total!) and I've therefore got 100% for Jantastic. Pleased with that, now will have to think about the long run target for Feb.
x-post Lorenzo - nicely done this am, and BIG respect for your planned jaunt next weekend.
Click on the record runs for Feb link - you can change your runs per week target (up or down) but set a different long run distance each week.

Keir, starting to shell peas, nice.
Lorenzo, I can;t comment on 50 in trail shoes as you have done it and I haven't, but I did 15 the other day in trail shoes on the Grand Union and it was good and grippy but hard work for the legs. The road shoes are so much more supportive and the paths on the Thames are muddy but not slippy out near Henley, Marlow, Richmond and Hammersmith and I am getting plenty of grip in road shoes (but they are big Nike Pegasus so plenty of grip anyway).
Well done to Speedy, Jezza and PMJ for some excellent Parkrunning, I wish we had that over here.
Good longer stuff from Bike It and Keir, the latter divesting small green vegetables of their pods early doors. Very encouraging, you two.
Glad to hear you're feeling better, Slokey - sorry if I don't respond to your Personal Ad...
Some nippy action from Gul -good work, Sir.
Lorenzo - For Febulous you can post a different number of runs per week from those you committed to in Jantastic . Also, your longest weekly run needn't be the same every week, or even that long, really.
I did 6.5M this morning which was meant to be slow, but I got into it and so did 5k @ 6:45mm pace, for a laugh. 18M tomorrow, where I suspect there will be fewer chuckles.
Hello all - plenty happening; Gul - patience proving a virtue there - things coming along nicely. Good long running from Keir, Bike-It (day one of mega weekend - good luck tomorrow), & Minni (who said "everyone is so fast on here now"). Sadly not so, Minni . . . . .some fine parkrunning (inc Speedy again within a long 'un) - belated b'day wishes btw . . .
20 miler this am - again starting in semi-darkness at 07:30, but running into sunshine and views of snow covered hills & fields. Legs felt creaky all the way, though - envious of Keir's "easy" . . . still, that's 4 x 20's done & dusted in Jan.
Vital stats - weight - no idea - have no scales in house. Waist - probably 31, height 5'10", upper body - scrawny, backside & thighs - chunky, calves - very shapely . . . . .

Came across a chap having a huge bonfire in a remote spot at about 5:15am. Suspect alcohol involved. 3 hours running tomorrow planned probably meaning 21-22 miles
