I havent run since last friday, was gonna go for a 10 on sunday but woke up saturday with stinking cold so thought it best to rest really instead of making myself worse. Im not normally that sensible but thought i should just have a break and recover. I have a really weak immune system so I need the rest sometimes . Im itching to go run now though, instead of running ive mainly been eating ( shovelling haribo into my mouth as I type).I think its good to have a little rest.have you tapered??

I drank the frog spawn, it tasted non descript to be honest but the texture was unnerving!! I agree swimming is the devils work

A group of us are also debating the Marathon de Medoc, what could be better running and drinking

Yes it was a 3am scotch egg, was very ashamed of myself after enjoying it so much!! I bought chia seeds/ frog spawn after reading Born to Run not sure what sort of effect they have though, I keep waiting for someting to happen. I did look at the Oner but ive booked in to do the Dirty Weekend beginning of May so financially its just not doable. I shall be wearing the pink socks on day one so you'll spot me very easily ( and run away) A mate of mine keeps trying to get me to take part in triathlons but my swimming is shockingly awful and im too easily distracted to ride a bike safely

I read that about Dean Karnazes, I read an interview with him in a health food mag and he mentioned the pizza in that. I love Scott Jurek , I just think he's amazing  cant wait to read the book. A brilliant website that I go on is www.nomeatathlete.com its based on vegetarian and vegan running but the majority of articles and blogs are for all runners, as an ex-vegan I do try and be as meat free as possible but sometimes its hard to pass up a bacon sarnie,. My downfall was getting drunk and eating a scotch egg and then mid chomp remembering I was vegan...it was all down hill from there! I will own up to having a pair of orca compression shorts, they are possible the tightest most uncomfortable bit of clothing I own, also one pair of compression socks are illuminous pink!!

That sounds like three days of heaven for me, i normally bore the hell out of everyone blabbing on about this race and this book and these trainers! If we are admitting stuff I own 3 pairs of compression socks which I wear after my long runs but they cost no more than £5 a pair. My backpack is brill considering how cheap it was, I do have a camlebak but it was too small for all the kit we have to carry.

I havent seen that dvd but im going to have a look for it on amazon, ive ordered Scott Jureks "eat and run" The weather down here has been atrocious today, howling winds and lashing down rain.....its gonna get very very messy

Dont apologise, I tend to go on when im talking about running and you can see peoples eyes glazing over!! Wow those times are amazing and 6th overall is an acheivement, considering the terrain those times are good!! Rosie Swales from tenby, shes crazy doing all that running around!!!! This is weird but I had to pull out of London Marathon in 2007 due to shin splints and I had to pull out of Edinburgh aswell, I was so upset, I couldnt walk for weeks!! If you like the book "Born to Run"  you should get the dvd " Running the sahara"  it is amazing, I think these 3 guys end up running for 120 days, its incredible!! I am running in my Asics Fuji, they are the most comfortable lightweight off road shoes i have ever run in and they were half price when i bought them so even better! Talking of people in compression gear, one of the guys im running with ( hopefully I will lose him!!) has got so much kit youd think he was running the Marathon de Sable!! God he is definately all the gear and no idea, hes bought a kit bag that takes a degree to get on and there sme with my £10 quid hydration backpack from Tesco, I like to run on a budget. Elly
