Moraghan Training - Stevie G

Posted: Today at 14:44

Hi Nikki! I have to say I did not enjoy anything about that whole xc experience except possibly the bit just after I started running when at least I wasn't so bloody cold. Good luck in Edinburgh - I might see you as my friend is running it and I will go along to support her (having possibly squeezed in the St Andrews Chariots 5k first!)

RW F7 – aiming for 3.15

Eurodisney is quite shit and it isn't even in Paris. There are loads of good things for kids to do in Paris, because it's Paris.

I ran 15 miles at 7:26 yesterday too and my coach pointed out that that was faster than it was meant to be and told me to slow down a bit.

Lactic acid + weight

Okay, but the point is that if it is water then you haven't gained fat and it isn't permanent.

If you are stuck at the same weight over several weeks it might just be that now you have lost 5 stone you don't need as much food as you used to. But that doesn't seem to be the case because you say that when you haven't run on Sunday you usually lose weight. So things are still going in the right direction. But when you lose weight it's probably a combination of that week's weight loss and the previous week's (which didn't show up on the scales because of the extra water). And that is normal because the closer you get to your ideal weight, the slower the weight loss will be.

Do you get paid for being a weighwatchers consultant? If so I should do it with my one item of knowledge about exercise and water retention (see above).

It's not water consumption, it's water retention. Your muscles hang onto it to repair themselves.

It will be your body retaining water to help you recover from the run. I wouldn't worry about it.

Overdone it?

Maybe it was the wind and you're shit.

This would be a good place to start, David.

A lovely sunny day on the Fife coast with no ice or snow. Pity I missed out on all the sunshine by running at 6am, however.

No it's not. Talking to someone isn't rude. Ignoring them is. If you don't want to talk to someone just tell them politely that you want to read your book.

Ooh, that happened to me once in a French park.

Me: actually, I'm really sorry, but I'd like to read my book.
Sleazy French man: that's really interesting. I'm an author, actually...

In the end I couldn't shake him off and just had to get up and leave.

P&D Spring Marathon Thread 2015

Fair enough - I wasn't asking 'why no gels' because I don't really use them myself, but the way you'd put 'without fuel including water' sounded as though you normally would want water and had decided to deny yourself any for mysterious reasons. I wouldn't take water either because I wouldn't expect to be thirsty but you sounded like you normally would.

Why has Tom Chinery been deleted?

Now I'll never find out whether or not he achieves his ambitious goals.
