Too fat to run now

Posted: 17/08/2014 at 09:49
Morning. Thank you limper. 16 miles walked yesterday. It was dry but oh boy it was windy. Going over Forth Bridge was a struggle as into the wind. At least it was at our back on way back over. I left the route up to friend. Big mistake....lol. The last couple of miles were really steep hills.

Plodding is still proving hard. I have the distance in walking but the minute I try a plod I struggle. Breathing is all wrong and legs only plod a short distance before back to walking. I think I am still too heavy to plod.

I am now down 2st 6lbs. This takes me to 4lbs less than when I started this thread. Since then I have lost the weight twice, gained it plus lots more. Determined to get it off and keep it off. Getting too old for yo yo dieting. 5st to lose yet.

Hope your garden party goes well today Limper. It's windy here but not as bad as yesterday. I hope the rain stays off for you.

Glad you are enjoying the sun Limper. Hope things are improving for you. It has been nice up here but yesterday and today has been wet and windy.

Did 14 mile walk on Friday, 3 miles yesterday and 3 miles today. 4 weeks Saturday to Kielder. Mixing in a little plodding into the walks.

What are you boys up to?

Hi all. I seem to always be saying sorry not been around these days but I genuinely have been tied up.

Spoke with SIL wife and I got to go into funeral home to say goodbye. It was so sad. There he was in his gillie shirt and kilt. He looked so peaceful. At least he is out of pain now. I didn't go to funeral although I could have but I had already said I would go with his parents and my granddaughter to let off balloons. They were forbidden to go to funeral. Long story.

Did a 14 mile walk last weekend. Weather was not good down at caravan. Most of walk was in the rain. Another 14 planned this weekend.

GNR number came today but I am holding it over till next year. I am just not fit enough to plod. Mind you I suppose I could walk it...lol. No I am doing Kielder Water 6 days later so going for that instead this year.

Enough of me. Limper how are you? How are you boys?

Thanks Sub329. I can't find anything to say I can defer. Could you point me in the right direction. I don't mind paying again to know I have an entry if that's what I decide to do. I still have to think if my knees would hold out now that I have been diagnosed with arthritis.

Rich I got your mail and replied.

Hello all. Hope chiropractor sorts things out for you RE.
Been really busy here. 10 miles walked at weekend and 6 miles walked/plodded yesterday. Child minding today.
Sad news my son in law (well ex as he and my daughter divorced many years ago but we have remained good friends) died at the weekend. He had an inoperable brain tumour. Been to see his parents today. His new wife didn't tell them but posted on Facebook to say he had died. What a horrible way to find out your son had died.
Back to work tomorrow ????

Can't see me being fit enough to do this.  Does anyone know if you can hold your entry over to next year or is it use it or lose it?  Ta.

Well done Limper. Sorry not been around what between work and childminding I have been busy. Not much walking getting done. Well fitting in 5 and 6 miles but nothing longer. Away in caravan this weekend with 5 year old grandson. Worn out and will be happy to take him home tomorrow.

Evening. Lucky boys off on their travels.

Are you busy at work that is making you tired? Stress and tiredness can wipe you out. Maybe just short runs to help relieve the stress. Would that work? Sorry you are having a horrible time just now.

Managed another plod and it went a little better. Having to mix plodding with days of walks seeing as I am doing Kielder Water Challenge so still need to train to walk 25 miles.

Weather not good here. Wind and dull. It was lovely up till Tuesday but has gone down hill. Typical Scotland.
