Jason - Second what Gillian says about the Edinburgh Marathon. The organisation was ashambles this year so read the reviews on here as Gillian says.

That said i will probably do it again though just cos its the home one for me.

Happy training and good luck

Good morning one and all.

How are we all on this lovely Friday??

No running for me today - just another gym session. Probably go to Parkrun tomorrow.

Joe - Thats a fantastic HM time.I did a HM in Prague in April as part of my training for the marathon I did in May. it was a very busy congested course but managed it in 2.06. Got a similar time on the split in my marathon so hoping to get a sub 2hrs in September. 

Helloooooooooooooooooooo everyone else have a smashing Friday folks.

how was gym franny?..we have a gym just round the corner from the house , and as its an army gym my membership fee is non-existent..i really have no excuse NOT to go..but some of those boys can be really intimidating-lol..superfit, although i think i could give them a run (scuse the pun) for their money on the treadmill

Loula - my gym session yesterday was good and consisted of weighted squats,weighted lunges,bosu squats,upper body weights and some abs and core finish off an intervaal session on the treadmill.

You should get yourself down to that gym I am sure you will be a big hit with the guys and am sure you could pick up some good exersizes.

Morning Folks

And here was me thinking I was a nutter. LOL mmmmmmmmmmmmmm Ironmans and ultras OMG Hee Hee  I am wiv you Loula i so can't really swim very well so i would be a dreadful contestant. Would rather run any day of the week and yes i can cycle burt not that fast either.Good luck Chili - that is a challenge and a half. Big respect.

I have a marathon that will be up our street. It will suit us vino peeps.Marathon du Medoc.

As part of training you have to drink wine every night so as you get used to it and they have wine tasting and food along the way. In your goodie bag at the end you even get given abottle of vintage wine. This years theme is animals. Apparently everyone does it in fancy dress and its a party atmosphere from start to finish, no one is interested in a PB or so they say. You have to finish it in 6hrs 30 mins. Sounds mad doesn't it. Wine drinking and running  

Went out early this morning and did 5.5 miles in 47.15mins and rain stayed off so that was a bonus.

Off with No 1 son to go see my Mum today.

Have a nice day eveeeeeeryyyoooone.

Gosh Joe - That exersize does sound like a killer and not suprised you don't want to do it again LOL Sorry to hear about your knee playing up- Had a knee problem myself whilst training for my marathon this year but I have found out that its when i run in quite cold chilly,wet conditions and is not an injury as such. Don't like running in the cold and wet anyway but you can't duck out of a race just because of that LOL What sort of bother is it giving you???? Maybe try and strap it up wuth tubigrip and see how that feels on your next run.Strange it doesn't bother you when sprinting. maybe some of the other peeps will have some suggestions also.

John - Very well done on your weight loss. You must feel really proud of yourself. good luck with 10k at the weekend. You just have to believe you can do it and you will.
