Overdone it?

Posted: Today at 16:36

In direct response-

I don't like reading books.

I'll do it when my wife is at gym or out.

I don't really tend to phone someone just to chat and catch up as Facebook does that.

Generally I stay in work until my real job is done for day.

She was complaining last month that it wasn't enough and we need more. I rarely get through mine but my wife does easily. She seems to buy lots of clothes and when she has a night out it's always a meal and theatre or something whereas as I will have a few beers and a curry.

Well you say that, however I can follow the process in about5 minutes from scratch and make around £20 and I'll do it at times that are non impactive.Anyway, there are only so many new accts to set up. I also in play bet which takes no time and there are methods to ensure a high hit rate. I am also trialling from today forex trading for a month.

Yes Skinny, that's my aim, to start back Monday with the system having kept ticking over but not having been stressed.

To the contrary, Skinny. Our finances are very transparent. Both our incomes go into a joint account and all our expenses and any collective socialising and stuff with kids comes out of that. We each take £350 a month allowance for personal stuff to do with as we please, no questions asked or eye brows raised. My gambling is my choice from my personal allowance, but I gamble in a member than means I win. 

I too have many friends with kids who have completely separate finances and I wonder how things work, particularly where there is a large salary difference.

Hope tomorrow goes as well as circumstances allow, mcf.

Lit, my Wife is in full knowledge mainly because I got herto set up a new bank acct to let me use. I do all the work and put the initial capital in and she gets 30% for nothing so it is kind of a reasonable arrangement for her. 

Anyway, contary to medical advice, as I'm no where near as bad 're symptoms as I was led to believe I would be, I did 3 miles easy this morning. It was just like running with a head cold.

I'm also backing the hypothetical mp runner.

Skinny, that is some work for a Monday morning. 

Bob, I often preach to people who state how active they but mysteriously can't lose weight. I usually cite the example of the London marathon where my watch estimates I burnt 2800 calories ish, which isn't even 1lb.  Fact is weight loss is 90% to do with intake.

Tommy, similar to my last couple of parkruns. I have got around in 19.12 and 19.13 without really feeling like I'm going a great deal faster than 10k effort. I just need to be brave enough to attack it properly. Might check Andys availability for a pb attack in Feb. 

Skinny, yes we refer to gambling. Hoping to use my time to make a good few hundred this week. 

Today I have watched the usain bolt and lance Armstrong documentaries and read a runners world back issue and had a late afternoon snooze( as well as above mentioned betting). Might venture outdoors for a stroll tomorrow.

That is indeed the plan, Mace. I've gone right back to the beginning and opening all the new accounts in my Wife's name this week. 

Must be very frustrating but I recall you being in a not dissimilar position last year?

Best interval training for half marathon?

Posted: 22/01/2017 at 19:42

It's not intervals you need. Let's see what those 40-50 look like I'm terms of each run and paces?

Your mileage is more than high enough to give you sufficient base to not drift off in a half, unless you are starting way too fast. What are your other times/distances?

Anyone here? 

Sitting around doing nothing gets a bit boring after 2 days. So far I've had plenty of footy to watch so not sure what I will do for entertainment after today. 

Post op symptoms have come out. Essentially, nasally, I feel like I have the worst cold ever but it isn't too bad as I dont have any other symptoms other than a dry throat from night time breathing. Seem to have survived the anaesthetic  hangover that I read about in dramatic fashion on mumsnet so hopefully I'll be up and running next week.

The more i read and see generally, the more i take the view-

1.Nobody really quite knows how the human body works in this respect and what categorically works.

2. We are all an experiment of one and as Muddy says above, we have to find out own personal blend of training.

Lit, yes I understand that but I did spend a considerable period of time doing a lot of easy miles and went backwards. I have adapted my schedule over each cycle I fundamentally I do enjoy doing some running nice and easy so on top of following my schedule I do now do a weekly 10 miles at circa 8mm pace. 

Procedure completed and back in room. Don't feel too bad at all considering especially now GA has worn off. Aneasthetist did warn me that it could take 6 weeks to recover from GA and to accept I may well not be at my best come London. The op itself is up to 2 weeks. 

The Middle Ground

The weight gain, sitting at home all week eating crap, is a concern.

Procedure done, just in recovery. Spoke with consultant and he said up to two weeks which is fine, however aneathetist had less good news and said it could take 6 weeks before I'm feeling in full flow again and not to expect a pb in London. Hopefully that is absolute worst case.

Rather, no, who is he?

Funny mind, they asked me how long I wanted a sick note between 2-6 weeks. As an employment lawyer representing companies, that sort of wild range without post op asessment doesn't sit comfortably with me.
