Is that at the Beeston end or the city end of the boulevard?

01/10/2013 at 18:24

city end - really big roundabout

mikasa - I think I started with 2 min run 2 min walk, then 3 min run/2 walk then 4 run/2 walk, the 4 run /1:30 walk, then 4:30 run/1:30 walk, and now I am on 5 run/1:30 walk

you could always follow the C25K which might be better than what I am doing but it is easy to put mine into my garmin to make it beep at me!

The closest one to the Uni is at 5pm is that too early for you MC?

01/10/2013 at 18:42

where is that? I could come straight from school, so long as I have a snack on the way I'll be ok, then home in time for OH to make tea

Great race report Rocco! And congratulations to Razor, Cake and everyone else who raced at the weekend.

I also like all the breakfast confessions

Have just arrived home from a wonderful weekend in Berlin with my brother and his girlfriend who started running 4 weeks ago. I didn't get a place in the Berlin marathon, the three of us did the Breakfast run of 6k and it was sooo much fun. Watched bits of the inline skating marathon and the proper running one. Cheered on the elites as they passed by the end of our road and saw the massive crowds finishing.

Berlin is a great city to cycle round so was out everyday in the sunshine doing touristy things. And paced my brother to his first sub 30min 5k.

I also confess to visiting the Ritter Sport chocolate shop twice and eating far too much of it!

No training tonight, had Physio at 5:15pm. Always let my legs rest after.

Now planning which treat to eat whilst watching the Great British Bakd off at 8pm *smileyfaceofglee

Well done Rocco and Kylie on your first Tri, be warned it's addictive.
Chilli....sounds like a great weekend, I'll bet the best bit was the chocolate.
I am doing the Snowman on Sunday with Horse, the forecast dosnt look to good so better get the wet weather gear out, the rules say we have to carry full wind proof gear in case the weather turns on the mountain, we must be mad

Razor - sounds awesome! One day I'll be fit enough to do something like that. 

I don't think you'll find a totally sane person on these boards, must be something in the water...

Good luck with the Snowman Razor and Horse, I fancy that for next year

02/10/2013 at 13:40

Wow, Razor! Have just looked up the Snowman. Total respect to you!

5 miles run this morning and I have negated all fat burning benefits by eating waffles for lunch.

yes we are all the same here, normal sane people who enjoy loony endurance events.

its the sofa surfers who are nutters. 

i get a bit restless about 3/4 of the way through a movie or F1 now. Get me on my bike!!! 

 

02/10/2013 at 16:42

Well the good news for me is Physio says I'm good to swim, bike and run again
Bad news is I'm too full of cold to do any of that  but I can still make a start on my heel lifts and I've lost 2 1/2 lbs in the last fortnight.
I'm very jealous of all the activity you lot are managing. Oh but new bike is on order for me

02/10/2013 at 16:45

Alibear - good news what bike are you getting?

had another rest day today

02/10/2013 at 17:05

MC I'm getting a Trek Domane 4.7 WSD and I'm getting it fitted with Tubeless tyres from the start. I'm stupidly excited about it.

 Oh bike porn, have you got a name for it yet?

Razor I'm good you sexy beast are you doing stockport 10 this year? And if not can I tempt you.

Good luck Razor and Horse, that Snowman looks like a great challenging event.

MC, I have taken a semi rest day, woke up feeling under the weather but nothing specific, then bit of a sore throat, asthmatic cough seems a little worse than normal and no energy and the hips of a 90 year old. So instead of going for a run I settled for a 30 minute walk which was enough. The niggles and mini spasms in the leg muscles were most off putting but hoping the following stretching will sort it out.

I am going to go to my first spin class tomorrow so I want to be fit and healthy for it as it is with members of the cycle club.

I am still planning my training, maybe that is what is making me feel run down just the thought of the training, which I reckon starts the beginning of November. Having said that I need to do something to have any fitness ready to start.
