i was planning to refuse to pay again!! especially as u'd actually been within those 3 lbs for about 8 months before i finally got to target, thought it'd be easy enough to stay there but clearly not!

i know not going to live that one down for a while. Every time I leave the house now he asks 'have you got your bra?'

(i was wearing a sports bra, i hasten to add!! Far too enthusiastically-endowed to go without one of those!)

What's a grockle?! Were you eating them or feeding chips to them?? 

Chester is 6th October - less than 10 weeks away now which is far too close!!

Suspect I'll see your backside as you whizz off into the distance Jenni  

Well done Snaily! I could do with doing something similar - got down to target at slimming world then promptly put on 5lbs in 4 weeks and now have to pay again

Come on Meldy, where's your race report?? You wouldn't let the rest of us get away with such a slovenly attitude!

Brilliant work Larry! Glad Holly's going to be alright, poor head though xxx

~~~~~~~Podds and DG~~~~~~~~~

((((sore bottoms))))))

Well cycled Noggs!  

Jenni - yes I AM still doing Chester!! And I do run occasionally, I promise I even did 8 miles on the first day of my holidays and 6 yesterday And I'm only 7 miles off 230, which is the number of miles I did in the whole of 2012 (when I did chester last time) so even if the rest of my training is measly I will have done more miles overall )

I've got a RW Forum 5 thread over in the Spring Marathon bit of the forum so I try to keep detailed updates over there rather than posting the same thing twice, although I do end up talking to myself quite a bit  

Hot here.

Morning all. Hope there aren't too many sore bottoms kicking around today

((((podds and DG)))) fingers crossed xx

York for me. Trying to rejig training plan on the train. Wishing 'training plan' involved doing all those miles actually on a train - i'd be dead good at that

no idea how i'm going to fit them in otherwise!

Well I know full well Sister of Daffs up there has not done10 miles!!

Neither have I...

BUT I did take running kit on holiday and nipped out for a short 30 mins along the prom and ended up doing 8 miles Felt like I could keep going for ages and ages (all I'd eaten was a slice of lemon cheesecake - didn't even have any water with me but it was evening and not hot). Turned round eventually cos we were meant to be going out for tea and I wasn't going to get back til gone 9pm!

Love it when that happens. Pretty sure I could have gone a few more miles (especially as it was flat!) but poor old Mr Daffs didn't know where I was and it was the first night of our holidays so I thought I'd best go back

Didn't run any more on hols - but we did walk 10 miles the following day and 11 miles the day after that. Surely that must count for something!?!

Lots of driving yesterday and collapsed in a heap when I got back.

Been out and about today, thought I wouldn't get chance for a run but I'm not going to get round the bloody marathon with that attitude so I put on my running kit and RAN to my chicken keeping course

Got there and realised I'd forgotten my bra so poor Mr Daffs had to drive the 3 miles I'd just run - came round the corner triumphantly waving it out of the window

Then ran another couple of miles to meet friend in the park, had baked potato and chilli and a cuppa, then ran another mile or so uphill home, absolutely desperate for a wee

So 6 miles done, carrying a change of clothes in a rucksack. Not brilliant and certainly won't be breaking any speed records but it's 6 miles more than I would have done and I'm pleased I did it

Suspect I'd run a lot more if I did it like this! Does it matter if some of my runs (obviously not all!) are broken up like this? Is it better to have shorter ones (ie 6 miles) broken up, or big long 10+ mile ones?
