Good luck Diane.

The alloa half sounds fun. 


Today was another 15 minutes on the turbo trainer not a lot but doing 4 x 15m this week, and next week 2 x 15m and 2 x 30m and then the week after might try running only a mile alternste days. (We shall see but the knee is fine with the cycling).

Sorry but what do you want? An award for not eating meat and running for 12 hours? 


So you don't eat meat, big deal.


EDIT: oh, just about every post is trying to show off and get us to view your blog... so you are just a spammer.

Beer is a great recovery tool a couple a night will help.

I guess back to back long runs is the key to getting a bit used to it. If you can back to back 25m runs (or just run as many marathons as you can sign up for) will be good practise.

It's just convincing your body it can go again when knackered each morning

Don't mess with fell runners

Completely wrong reaction, but you can understand the feelings of frustration when they were saying they were just going to write off her passion and hard work and pretty much wipe out her hard work to be who she was.

Yeah the record situation is a difficult one to solve but having had them for x time and then having them wiped out must have been very upsetting, as if denying her life.

If you are denied from day 1 it's different to saying yep this is all fine then years later someone turning around and saying f**k you, you aren't ok anymore.

Hills everywhere, how to start?

Posted: 20/10/2016 at 14:37
Put the same estimated effort in, be that a walk a fast march or running very, very slowly, but if you put in around the same or slightly more effort and just keep it under control.

You can also run walk up the hills more so 30s run 40s walk n repeat till you get to the top then just continue with the rest of the program as is.
