Morning All - long time since I have been on here - I am the guilty party who got you all started on this thread !! and am so delighted to see its still going - I am still a member of the SOC club although I havent posted for ages. Its lovely to see some familiar names on from the very beginning - hello to Chris Oco, Birkmyre, Tommygun2, Katiecom & Mathschick - keep up the good work guys
Thanks to all for your tips for fueling up whilst on a run
Gemma - I like your comments about the sports drinks - think that I would be able to stomach those better - any to recommend ?? Still get that sick feeling when I think about the gel I tried - UGH !!
Chris - re salt levels do you just increase salt intake in lead up to a big race ?
Alibee - have heard that jelly babies are good too but think that prob be same problems as that with jelly beans
Covered 13 mile today in preparation for Great North Run - just need to know in my mind that I can cover that distance before holidays take over and then before I know its race day !! Now just need to find a good liquid carb drink and work on improving my time...........
I cant go wrong with this forum ....... tips and advice & I still look to it for that all important motivation to know that I am not alone as a SOC
Hello everybody - I know I don't post often on the forum now but I do keep uptodate with what you are all up to & busy SOC ers you are !!
Which brings me to ask your advice - having increased my mileage recently & knowing that you lot certainly do put in the miles I wanted to ask do you take anything whilst running I obviously always carry my water but have recently been thinking about energy bars or gels. I have tried a gel but it was horrible & nearly threw it up straight away !!
Day off today So not only have done my SOC run but also opportunity to catch up on news on thread
Lovely 5 miler this morning with perfectly timed shower in the middle of run just the job for a bit of refreshment mid run !! Now set up for the day with a bit of retail therapy me thinks - oh if only every day could be like this ........ have a good day all x
