Hitting the road

Agree it's all a struggle- I'm 5'2" and have to stick to about 1300 to keep same weight which is why I get so hungry when trying to cut it down in order to lose

Thanks for that - I find if I cut down too much I can't sustain it - not enough energy for running and end up off the wagon - then it takes such an effort to cut down again, and hey presto - yo yo and weight gain - hard to find middle ground, but it's hard for everyone I guess!!

BT....out of interest did WW give you daily calorie limit and so did you add on calories suggested by garmin/strava for each run? I've now reached 60 and oh boy does your food intake change- body doesn't need same quantity of food anymore but sadly runger remains unchanged. Reckon I've gradually gained a stone over the last year plus (shhhh) 'middle aged spread'!!!

Mostly few mouthfuls of water and then straight out the door.....but if I'm feeling peckish I'll have couple bites of banana and finish it when I get back.

What to expect after hip / pelvis re-alignment

Posted: 07/10/2014 at 15:33
I get my right hip manipulated back into alignment every now and then (despite doing weekly Pilates, clams, side leg raises etc etc) and every time it feels wonderful! It frees it up and I run much more fluently and easily, until sadly it all seems to gradually tighten up again.

London Marathon 2015 GUTTED...need advice no lecture!

I chose a charity that meant a lot to me personally (hospice that cared for my father) so it meant I was more than happy to make up any shortfall. Fundraising was just asking around family, friends and colleagues and I ended up paying
??500, but that felt ok for me.

Yep, 17 laps of the Cyclopark, the one where Steve Way got his 100km record!

I thought this was a flat course too until I did it this year....unfortunately the hill gets bigger and bigger, and by lap 17 it's a killer!!! But it's a great event, well organised, welcoming and friendly with an awesome medal and Tshirt- highly recommended.
