Saltpot - much watch that cheese, know what you mean though it's to moorish, but it is the one thing that really puts the weight on me.
Foxy, where do you go for your sports massage, never had one myself but was wondering about them, so do you really think they make a difference? - mind you I guess you do as you wouldn't have them. Do you think they prevent injuries, strains etc?
Julia T, eight weeks should be enough I reckon baring injuries of course so stick with it. Mine is Feb 8 so am sweating somewhat, still resting my injury so will have to see.
Still injured so concentrated on swimming - don't know if anyone else noticed this but since my stamina has improved through running (8/9 mile runs) I noiticed I can easliy swim freestyle for a couple of miles now - could just about do 50 lengths before I started running again, I was amazed. I shall definitley keep up the swimming even when I start running again (which will be hopefully tomorrow - hangover allowing of course).
Hi all, glad everything is going well for most. I am swimming and cycling at the mo as I'm still injured. Shall try a short run tomorrow me thinks, very frustrating though.
FL well done on the 9 miler, it's a pain when you accidently stop the Garmin, I've done that to mine before now - especially when you feel as though it went well. Hope the drinks went down well. Mrs MTP and myself went to the Waggon on Friday evening and both had more than we should have done, still doesn't hurt, more incentive to run it off I guess.
I've been using my Polar heart rate monitor lately when cycling, the batteries packed up and I went to Sweatshop in Reading and they said I had to send it back to Polar. I thought nah, can't be doing that so went to Timsons and they put a new battery in for £11 and its fine - you should all remember that when yours goes.
I had a couple of days off and went for a long run (9 miles) but had to call it a day as I developed a groin strain (funny comments anticipated) and it was getting worse so had to call it a day at mile 7. Really annoying as I was running so well and felt so good in all other ways. Shall have to rest now for a while I guess and hope it clears up quick! That's what you get for not warming up properly.
Hi Thera, Lifefitness are really good - I was trying to justify getting a new treddie as I would like one with programs etc - mines fairly basic in that I have to press buttons for the incline. Next time I would definitely look at second hand as I think there are so many bought that are never used (like most sports equipment), me thinks there could be real bargains to be had. I noticed you've done 2 hours on yours in one stint, most I've done is 1.5 hours, it's no problem to me as I find it very medatative, sometimes listen to a footy game whilst I plod and time just goes so quickly. Mind you I tend to do more runs outside now as I find the tready far easier - need to balance the two up.
Flipperjane - sorry about your wonkey floor, I guess getting it screed would just add to the cost.
