Happy Birthday to the thread, how fantastic!! I have drifted in and out during that time but always know where home is
Ms - Those energy bars look amazing. Thank you.
JR - Family feud over mayo, did make me lol. I agree on the taste factor. One thing I hear alot is 'vegetarian? I bet your food is bland?' This is just not the case though. You can throw chillis and peppers in just about anything to give it life.
Lisa - Busy schedule coming up, I hope that achilles calms down for you.
330 - Godd luck getting out tonight.
Brad - Well done, nice progress.
Nightmare last night. Got home from my run, attach the Garmin to the laptop....nothing, watch is completely dead. Thankfully the support forums are really good and it's a common problem with the 110, so managed to reset it eventually and didn't even lose my data....bonus
Same 5k route (although the dead cat did put me off my stride for a bit) in just over half an hour.
Good on you Grendel but MacDonalds? I didn't think anybody bar my kids ate that!!
B2b - Sorry to hear it didn't work out for you. I do feel sometimes I struggle to get what I need and as I build up my mileage it will more than likely get tougher. No sugar here either but no grain? That must be tough.
Don't mind food/nutrition, wherever it goes. Homemade curry with Quorn chicken and a naan for me at the moment. Fav veg is leek or spinach.
Mad weekend, football Saturday, and daughter home from Uni, I never got a chance to update Friday's run. Nice steady 5k in 31:58 and the same route today in 31:17 so really happy with those.
Finished Feb with 28 miles in the bank, nearly double January's effort.
As nobody has mentioned a topic for this month can I suggest food, now we have done music and films?
As a vegetarian I probably struggle to get what I need as easily as you guys but do get a variety still.
I am addicted to Quorn chicken style pieces at the moment, I think they taste lovely and are high in protein. Have any of you meat eaters tried Quorn, if so what do you think? (if not try it...I know where you all live!!!)
Excellent work all, good to see plans and targets in place and everyone enjoying their running. From 5k, to marathons, and beyond, 100? jesus seriously?
I did a 5k tonight, my first of the year in 33 minutes. Reversed the loop I normally do and added a bit on the end. Very confusing, what was an uphill suddenly became a downhill and vice-versa, but variety is the spice of life and all that .
Back on to films - I saw the late, great James Gandolfini in 'Down By The Shore' on Sky the other night. Must have been one of his last films and is well worth a watch.
