Fatso? Sweet.

I can start running again tomorrow so let's see what my weight is next Sunday.

I don't think I eat loads. I eat porridge for breakfast, sandwich and fruit for lunch and a normal meal for dinner. I rarely eat chocolate, I don't drink alcohol. Up to recently I was running 20 miles a week. But I've gone from 175lbs to 181 in a couple of weeks.

Just a moan. I've not been able to run that much over the past couple of weeks and I weighed myself this morning I'd put 6lb on. Pain!!

What about the Osprey Daylight anyone got one of those? It's within my price range.

Thanks all, microfibres towels. Not heard of those. What are they and where can you get them?

I've asked my wife to get me a rucksack for when I run to work. I'm currently using a normal rucksack and it gives me sore neck and shoulder muscles as well as my lower back. It's probably also because I put my shower gear and towel in it so it can weigh a bit. So, I'm looking for a good, light rucksack that I can run with. I don't want to pay more than ??35 and it needs to be able to take changing gear, towels etc. Any suggestions folks? Thanks.

Running and weight loss

I think it must because I run 5 miles as part of my commute and I carry a rucksack. The rucksack weighs about five kilos all told and when I have that my pace is about 10 min miles. When I run without it My pace is about 9 minutes 30. So yes, I think it does affect your speed.

After a cold

I would have done but I haven't regained my sight yet so typing is a tad difficult. Fortunately my temperature is down from the spike of 210 degrees so a 5 miler should be ok.

Thanks all.

Dave, this was man-flu with a touch of Ebola and monkeybutt disease thrown in for good measure! It was touch and go a couple of times whether Id regain full use of my limbs.
