TinkerBel - No changes...... My usual gluten free, vegan diet! It is very strange, but I am not complaining!

Well done TinkerBel, findkng a balance is sometimes harder than anything else. Good luck, but you do not need to be losing weight! 

I find that I never lose weight when runing mega miles.... Even earlier this year when I was running 70miles per week, walking another 60 and doing two weight sessions I never lost weight. It seems to make my body go into starvation mode! on a plus Note thou:, 8 weeks with no running, I haven't lost weight but lost inches! More definition in upper body, trying no to worry about the jiggly mess my legs have become! 

Swimming tonight.... More upperbody no legs.

Hi Newey- I think the FIRST training plan Thisisnatty speaks of is based on three runs per week plus two cross training - either bike or swimming.

I would so love to click that enter button but I know it is not an option. 

I am still not running And not likely to be anytime soon. I have consultation with Surgeon on Thursday but I am trying desperately to avoid going under the knife again.   currently managing to control my frustration with cycling 4x per week and swimming 4x per week. Cycling is easy and most enjoyable, swimming is another matter -although I have made improvements in the last few weeks and even started lessons! 

As a non Paris runner I will continue to lurk and enjoy reading about your journeys.

That does look amazing Danni. 

Welcome to all newbies. Paris is great and you will get lots of advice and information, some even running related, from folks here.

I will continue to lurk, sadly still no running. I have my appointment with the surgeon on 20th..... Very nervous about it. TBH there has not been much improvement in the last 4 weeks and I did have a week of sofa rest. Thankfully I am really enjoying cycling, and my swimming has improved lots.

Well done to Elspeth OH. Cracking recovery after her injury.

Hope the bike went ok Fiona.

Plank Challenge is great for increasing strength! 

NP - thank you for the advice on the Nose clip. I am now getting my  head in the water, still getting confused with breathing but heading in the right direction. My daughter had me picking up hoops from the bottom of the deep end on Friday Night.

The youngest and I went for a 10 mile cycle yesterday, strong headwind on way home and her gears jamming made a very hard cycle for her. 20 mile cycle for me this morning, but I think I overdid the weights yesterday morning - My arms were agony when I was cycling. Heading to the pool again tonight.

TBH I have mixed opinions about the 20 miler runs. I know mentally the boost from doing then but I also know how long the recovery can take( obviosly depends on individual circumstances). I have done marathons with 5 x 20 mile runs and some with less. My best marathon was when I'd only done 1x 15 mile and 1x 20 mile run and lots of 10 mile runs at close to MP.... 

Not much happening here yet!

Awesome result Fiona!! Congratulations.  Now rest that ankle!

AGF- Exciting times ahead!

Tek - I hope your feeling better?

My recovery continues.....V slowly! still very painful be evening. Doing plenty of cycling and intervals on the turbo trainer as well as swimming, core and upper body work. Started improvers swimming lessons on Monday but not quite sure how its going to work out - I never realised my fear of putting my head in the water was quite so bad! I may have to continue  with my head bobbing about above water!

Good luck to all racing this weekend.
