Five Year Plan - help please

Posted: 06/07/2014 at 17:35

Just a quick check-in...

I've been so busy with work and study/assessments that I haven't been posting on forums - hence my radio silence   Running has taken a bit of a back seat too, but I'm just about doing enough to tick over. Averaging three runs a week - two five milers and one of 10m or more. 

I seem to be making some breakthroughs at work and I've finally caught up with my studies, so hopefully I'll be able to gradually increase the amount of running I am doing.


You know these great running and weight loss stories.

LFR - unless you have a deadline to meet (e.g. wedding dress to fit into), why not aim for a slower and more manageable weight loss? By changing the goal to one pound (or half-a-pound) per week you will have a more realistic calorie target. 

Having said that, losing at a faster rate will be more likely once you are training for a marathon again. There's a lot of calories burned during those long runs and midweek medium-long runs.

I'm glad to see that people are beginning to take their training "logs" more seriously now 

(I'm here all week )

Great reports Ickle/LFR/Madbee!

LFR - I agree you're being over critical of your performance! I know you'll smash it before too long.

Ickle - check out P&D's other book "Road racing for serious runners" to see 5K to half marathon plans. I think they are also bringing out an updated version, but it's not due until late this year.

Madbee - made me LOL when you said it was all going by too quickly  Your attitude and reports have been brilliant. Hope you'll be about again in December to inspire me to my next target! Great photo's too - happy making!

All good things come to an end and I suppose this thread is wrapping up now . Good luck to the Autumn P&D'ers. Hope to be following more of the same in December as I train for Brighton 2015.

I seem to be recovering from the vertigo (touchwood) and hope to be making a tentative start with training later this week. I'd like to have a crack at a solid 10k performance in the summer (it's overdue for a PB!).

No, I think Tenjiso had at least 4 poos last year.

Here we go, let's relive the best moment of Tenjiso's race report from last year:

Tenjiso wrote (see)

I visited the toilet and had a poo at 5:45am, 6:30am, 7:20am and 7:50am!!! Record breaking bowel movements! I took two imodium at 7:10am after the first two visits. My kit was already laid out and it didn't take long to get ready and lube my nips, pits, thighs, toes and tackle. This paragraph contains too much info I know, but you are past it now.


And for completeness, don't forget this year's....

Those who followed my progress for Brighton last year might remember I had four poo's on the race morning (a PPB). Well, this year I had a poo at 6:15, 6:45, 7:30 and finally 8:15! I suppose this is the carb-unloading process. I did give it one more shot just before the race, but failed to make a new PPB. Needless to say I took some immodium to be on the safe side during the race.

I stopped drinking just over an hour before the race so that I wouldn't want to stop for a pee.


Doesn't everybody keep records of pre-marathon bowel movements?

Brilliant time madbee, congratulations!!!  I'll be looking for tips for Brighton next year. Do you think the pimple on the bum helped? 

Well done icklemichael, another great result and glad you were mostly successful with enjoying it  

C'mon LFR... spill the beans!

Looking forward to the reports. I've got a day off work tomorrow (which I expect I'll need to have time to read madbee's report - any chance of an audiobook version? ).

Don't be shit!  

Enjoy the journey and the build-up, but try not to do too much (i.e. get some rest).

I've booked my hotel for next year's Brighton Marathon. Bloody Travelodge was fully booked in the hours before I got up yesterday, so I quickly found an alternative before only outrageously expensive options were available.

DT - I'm hoping this is short term, and that it's a one-off!

Fergster - apart from tablets to reduce pressure in the ears, I haven't been given any other options yet. 

Looking on the bright side... at least I'm not a professional tightrope walker.

Essential gear for a home gym?  Is this a joke?  Exercise equipment research should extend a bit further than QVC and the shopping...
