Great pictures Sarah.

Q1: Is there a knack to looking like a runner in a race photo?

In most of mine I either look like a drunk who has strayed onto the course by mistake or (possibly even worse) like I'm completely static (imagine Bruce Forsyth in his famous pose and you have some idea of what I'm talking about).

Q2: Do you find being a doctor is a benefit or a curse as far as running niggles are concerned? Are you comfortable knowing that every little pain is not the end of your running career or do you worry like hell about everything like I do?

Sarah - looking again at the photo of your mum with the guy in green I couldn't help but notice that with the torch and shop front graphics combined she's doing a very good impersonation of the Grim Reaper. Is this why the guy in green looks a little nervous?

Hi Malcs,

A1, Computers are amazing, its unbelievable what you can do with them these days! Im intrigued to see some of your photos now!

A2, Being a doctor is probably a curse as I tend to belittle everything that I have. Im the first to tell others to go to teh doctors, rest etc but im the last one to listen to my own advice. The reason probably why I ended up being on antibiotics for 4 weeks last feb, as I kept putting of going to the doctors and then going back. I think I have learnt from that mistake now though (I hope)

Thanks sarah.

Hi John how are you and lynda? Ive just seen your Gangnam John Style....its fabulous, had be chuckling away for a while

Followed by my second challenge of today.....

...........to go for a run!

What did I learn? To always go for a run before sunday diner, rather than afterwards!

09/12/2012 at 20:37

Managed a sickly 7 miles @ 7:24 min/ml

Hopefully the serious training will start a week tomorrow!

Good eating Sarah! What's your marathon goal? If you are running those speeds at this time you could be looking at going a lot quicker!
09/12/2012 at 20:55

Sarah - seriously I can't believe you ate all that!

I know I said I wasnt going to put any more photos up today but then I remembered this. My first EVER race (at Whirlow farm with my mum).......I did two more fun runs after that and then didnt do another race or run for 20+ years!

09/12/2012 at 20:59
All great pics, that was one mighty dinner!!!!
09/12/2012 at 21:00

Haha, Minni I cant either, for some reason I havent needed any tea yet!

DS2 I was aiming for a sub 3:30 for my marathon, sticking to 8 min/mls but if im lucky enough to get through I will see what the coaches say. Because I find it difficult to fit many training runs in to my life I think that it might be difficult for me to keep a chicker pace up for a full marathon, but we will see what the experts say (either the ASICS team if I get through, or the other runners on the sub 3:30 forum if I dont)!

I was thinking exactly the same thing!! Where do you put it all??

09/12/2012 at 21:05

Tell me about it Paul. I asked for beef and lamb, thinking that they would give half the amount as usual for each meat, but instead they gave me the equivalent of two sunday diners on one plate. Having been a student, I dont like to waist food, so the challenge begun!

09/12/2012 at 21:13
Ha ha ha ha and some challenge it was, well done
09/12/2012 at 22:01

Loved the before and after dinner pics!! Wow that looked AMAZING!

09/12/2012 at 22:10

Tut Tut Tut - that'll be a million miles for you this week

Hope pudding was a similar size!!!
