Ah, but cool in postmodernist, ironic, self-referential manner....

I know everyone thinks the treadmill is boring but I do have some killer running playlists on my ipod and I used to sort of sink into a trance, madly mouthing the song lyrics and thus probably looking quite unhinged. These days I dont use an ipod running, i find outside I feel more connected with my environment and more relaxed afterwards if I don't....

I am new to running and set one hell of a challenge

Sounds great Debs! I started running on a treadmill and would regularly run on the thing for 1.5-2hours ut for me it was to do with pacing - I just couldn't seem to get the hang of it when running by myself outside and would just knacker myself much too early. Eventually though I started to go outside and now I would never swap back - something about being in the open air has just so many psychological benefits I find! Also, once you have run somewhere, you HAVE to run back to get home so I like that motivation!!

Britney Spears "Hit Me Baby One More Time".Tragic. But I like it.

But I reckon the best running song EVER is "Do your thing" by Basement Jaxx. It can give me an extra 3 miles, easy!

There are lots of publication references to the research at the back of Michael Moseley's book if you are interested. the Horizon documentary also examined the key research.

The reason for doing it is that there is research showing huge health benefits in terms of reduced risks of cancers, heart disease and increased longevity, plus increased brain function in terms of things like memory. Don't get me wrong, I have half a stone to lose and I won't be sad when this gets rid of it, but that isn't my primary motivation....

you can find out more about it here if you are interested!

The 500 calories should be spent on nourishng food. the days need not be consecutive.

I have done it before, a few months ago, and felt amazing, really energetic...I wasn't running at that time though so just wondered how that fits in.

HI runners!

I am starting the 2 day fast diet ( though hate calling it a diet as that isn't really the point) I just wondered if anyone else does this and whether you still run on your down days (when you consume only a max of 500 calories) and how this works for you with training?

So far I have decided to fast on the 2 days a week I don't exercise but I find I have more energy on fasting days than eating days for some reason so just wondered what others do...
