One thing you wish you knew before you started running?

Literatin, when I took up running I came from a background of playing footbal on Saturdays and Sundays and doing regular 20 mile cycles, but it still hurt. Perhaps it comes down to individual physiology, I know form regular testing (at work) that my lung capacity is 5 litres, which is about 65% of what is normal for my height. When I took up running it was always my chest that gave out before my legs no matter if it was an easy run or not.  

What is your BMI and most recent all out race time?

I have been led to believe that VO2max is just a measure of the maximum amount of oxygen your body can absorb, it isn't a measure of how effeciently your body uses that oxygen. How efficiently you use oxygen determines your performance. Is that wrong?

My view is that there is no such thing as an easy run when you are a beginner. Every run will feel like it's hard and hurt, until you reach a certain level of fitness. when I started out every run hurt, even the so called easy runs. It was only after about 6 months and my first half marathon that my body got used to it and easy runs felt like they actually were easy runs.   

What TV boxsets would you recommend?

I have just bought the complete boxset of Breaking Bad as a Christmas treat to myself. At least I will have something to do over christmas instead of being annoyed by my family.

I usually wait until the series is finished and then buy the whole collection. That way I can read the reviews and see which ones sustained the interest until the end, which is why I am considering Breaking Bad for my next purchase.

I thoroughly enjoyed the the remake of Battlestar Galactica and even my wife, who generally loathes sci-fi, thought it was cracking viewing.

I am currently working my way through Game of Thrones, which is addicitve. I keep saying 'No way, I can't believe what just happened. I'll have to watch another episode'

What is your BMI and most recent all out race time?

Posted: 08/12/2014 at 15:03

my most recent all out race was doing the South Bucks 10k in October. All of my best times have been when I have gotten down to 11st 4lb, but I am currently wavering between 11st 10lb and 12st. The reason for puuting on the weight is that I haven't done much runnning since then (took 4 weeks out doing only a couple of leisurely parkruns). I usually go for a 7 mile run about now, but have decided to to have 2 generous slices of cheese on toast instead. I need to enter a spring half marathon for motivation.

Miami Vice

If you want to watch something that is truly awful I recommend the Miami Vice film. I bought it for £1 in a bargain bin and felt that I had wasted a pound.
