i am a newbie to the buccaneers and feel rather pathetic comparing my 'achievements' to theirs BUT the advice and articles have got me inspired and i am itching to move up the distances so one day i may be privileged enough to board the PSOF.  

Hope to do you proud at chatsworth!

New running shoes

Posted: Yesterday at 13:55

I dont think it is about quality Tara and the price is not really relevant.

from what i am reading you were assessed as a neutral runner but sold a pair of support shoes. i had awful trouble having been in the same situation and exchanged them within weeks (independent shop not sweatshop) You say you want cushioned but your 5 yr old pair may not have had much!!

tangy - if cals show that you should be loosing then what else can you do?? really unfair that you are putting in so much effort and getting slow results. Can you add some paprika (or something like that, chilli?) which is supposed to increase metabolic rate?? 

Turbo - wow, just wow

Vixo and turbo, if speech is taking a little longer and kids are getting frustrated dont forget that they pick up sign language really quickly. Mine had signs for drink, milk, juice, food, bed, car, etc and using sign does not delay speech (which is something people worry about)

Tatty - loving the 10k plan and sounds like you are mixing it up too. Cant imagine anyone thought G wouldnt have a hearty appetite! 

8 hilly, tussocky miles done - slow but it was lovely and prob have given legs a better workout than a flattish tempo.

Tangy - could you get someone 'independent' to look at your food diary and see if there is a reason why the weight isnt coming off. It sounds to me that you do stacks of exercise and are careful with meal planning etc so maybe a different approach is called for? I have a friend who eats very few cooked meals and cant loose weight. When we looked at her diet there was loads of cereal (with milk, and sugar content) that she was overlooking as it wasnt a 'proper meal'. Stacks of fruit can be a problem too for some people cant it? fab run though, you are so ready for your race!

Turbo - any behaviour is normal for a 4 yr old, doesnt have to have a reason, can be random and may escalate when tired, hungry or Just because. I find it also relates to the cost of the item or activity concerned, so they will scoff a cheapy ice cream but if you order an expensive one it will 'look funny, taste funny or just be too melty, too cold or have too many bits in'.....  love the house developing so quick, wow! 

JG - ppfft, I would ask her 'just why do you come to stay if you dont like me?' 

Caro - holiday has been a success then!? Sounds like a proper break from work for you all. I hate missing swimming when they are paid in advance. Have just paid for next term and realised we are away both bank holidays and doing a tri on another day so they will miss quite a few. 

Boys and hubby spent last night in in-laws garden - in a tent, in a tent (bit like a bird in a bird).... guess they have been warm enough as no creeping in to the house so far, I was snoring by 10pm!

Well done EF, sounds like loads going on for everyone as usual but fab for those enjoying the hols and zoo trip is making me jealous Tatty. 

Could kick myself as I forgot to order archies night caths. I have 5 left but of course the bloody ordering service is shut until Tuesday so i wont be able to get the script until then and they usually take a few days to come. Have worked 58 hours in the last 4 days though so guess something had to give. 

Obv absolutely no running for me this week but have had an email saying i can have the free entry for chatsworth tri which is amazing.

Whoop whoop free eggs JG, thats a result!

yippee to doing exercises, staycations, argueing for loads of money and fabby runs

boo to no bank holidays, forgetting to confirm client and to busy schedules

Think I may have bagged an entry to a standard distance tri which if i have i will need to seriously train for. river swim so guessing some of that will be easy (downstream) and some will be blimmin hard (upstream...)All parts are ok, its just putting them all together. 

Working really long hours while kids are away, midnight finish last 2 nights. YAWN.

Hmmmmm banana bread, yummy! Glad you are able to build back up JG. 

Hi Soswalker, i would echo Tangy's advice about core and building up slowly but also make sure you have well fitting kit if you have changed shape. Wobbling is painful! 

Fab efforts from the Yve's then, the only ones on here to brave London this year. When do entries open for next year?? 

My tri today went well although I was gutted to see a time of 2 hours at the finish. Thankfully that was timed from 1st wave of swimmers so my actual result was 1:30 which got me 2nd 40-49yr. I nearly didnt go up for it though as didnt want anyone thinking i could possibly be that old......
