Just had a little 2 mile hilly run. Brrrrrr Chilli it sure is cold out there. I would stick with pilates.

Morning Franny, no training with Trev yet but I have been carrying him round the house. I need to start on his blog soon. Well done on your 8.83 miles.

Loula are you being very norteeeeee again? We would be worried if you behaved.

Just waiting for my Mum and Dad to visit. I just hope the journey is okay for them.

Sorry By Eck, didnt see you there. How are the kiddies this morning. No more nose bleeds I hope. Little Ecky has them a lot .

Franny-Well done on your 8.83 miler and Ecky on your 2 miler.

LLB-It is good to have you being naughty - sometimes!!!! 

7.8 cold miles this morning- nice run and managed to keep going at c 8.00 minute miles throughout the run which is pleasing.

Bye for now....have a good day everyone.

Our rubbish bin is frozen shut. I've.attacked it with a screwdriver, boiling water and my foot and it's refusing to budge. I've got rubbish that needs to go in!

Of all the things to happen, eh?

Another quality workout AW. Nice one.

Shady_Ady: " I'm going to start using gels on all my training runs now to replicate what I want to do on race day. "

There are much more qualified people to reply on this (eg Ruth) but using gels on all runs does seem excessive. I now only use them (and sparingly) on long LSR's and the occasional very tough speed session. I just fuel beforehand on proper food and get by fine with water. Performance wise this means I get the "kick" from the gel that AW refers to and also, I think, trains the body to rely on existing fat stores.  

Hi AndyV

I agree, don't use them all the time. The point of using the gels on some of your  long runs is practice for race day (or if any run is over 15miles I would think you should use gels or other fuel). Some people have cast iron stomachs and need little practice so you can use gels etc a a couple of times in training and know you will have little problems on race day others need to practise more with them as the stomach can take a while to get used to eating and absorbing when running. The other thing you should consider is if you are going to use gels on runs don't use them for the first 30minutes and stop as you may find you actually hit the wall sooner as you can prime your body  to receive the glucose then you stop and your body thinks "hey where is my next blood sugar fix, you starting teasing me I would be getting some and now ....." so either use them on a long run like you will do racing for example every 30minutes or every so many miles/km.

Oooooo, mysterious post!
17/01/2013 at 13:08

I need something like that, but to drip-feed protein opposed to carbs, to help my muscle building goals.

17/01/2013 at 13:54

Yes I quite fancied the flapjack.  Bet the other thread is wondering who stole the meal plan


17/01/2013 at 14:50
Maybe they posted about a huge slice of chocolate cake on there instead
17/01/2013 at 14:53

That is a huge amount of starchy carbs! And light on the salad/veg fresh fruit. Quite high in sugar too. Aren't we all full of curiousity at the mystery post?

17/01/2013 at 15:25

17/01/2013 at 17:09

Oooooooooooooooooooo Loula the detective is on the case of finding out who the mystery person is...hope she doesn't get lost or led astray and get up to norteeeeeeeeee things....

17/01/2013 at 17:16

mysterious post, but a bit of a rubbish diet really. Too much sugar

well, drove home in the snow and it is settling, everyone is getting excited about the prospect of a snow day, but I bet school will be open as usual, it will just be a nightmare to get there.

was planning to swim this evening, but I am a bit of a wimp about driving in snow so might not, although I bet there won't be many there in this weather


17/01/2013 at 17:16

They are from the Spring Marathon Paris thread....Loula sis where are youuuuuuuuuuuuuu ???? did you find them too ?

17/01/2013 at 17:34

I imagine the mysterious post is from a parallel universe where eating veg and other fruity bits will lead to short life spans and poor body shapes.  Over in that universe they eat deep fried fatty foods and lots of sugar and chocolate in order to stay healthy.    Hmm .... WWWWWAAAAIIIIITTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!  DON'T LEAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  TAKE ME WITH YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

17/01/2013 at 20:22

17/01/2013 at 20:23
