Em, Germany is chezza's payback for me goin to Paris. I would have had both kids in tow but chezza's German pal has a little girl same age as Alice. It's out Hamburg way, actually I'm out there for a week in the summer. There's also a good half in hamburg but looks like I'm doing Shroovalberry half on the same day!

I wouldn't call it a gluten free diet DV. But I recommend cutting down your wheat intake right down. I used to be a bit of a sandwich monster, and love a massive plate of pasta. After you eat this you feel bloated. Filling up on bread doesn't do any favours, it more fattening than you think. When I started my weight loss regime I went onto wheat and gluten free bread for a bit as well, but now I take on a couple of slices of normal brown bread a day anymore than that and I feel disgusted with myself. Obviously portion control is just as important but now I can have a hearty portion of pasta, and not have that bloated feeling. Just get on freefrom pasta and cut down your bread intake and see/feel the difference

Emmy, I'm always on the gluten free/wheat free pasta. Swear by it. Don't do normal pasta at all. (Although I did in Paris at pastapapas cause I didn't want to complicate things, but if the option had been there I'd have taken it)  Anyway what's the deal this weekend em? Have you any support at your marathons?

After my "Jimbob Half" on Sunday that included 3 miles of running on my toes, new muscles in my lower leg started aching from the workout. It was an ok ache but was a little intense, like u get when u haven't trained for weeks. Anyway did a 4.5mile recovery run yesterday pacey and today it feels better so plan to run to work tomorrow in the sunshine.and all being well do 10 miles on Friday. Then 3 more days rest and Berlin training starts proper on Tuesday. Need to get that weekly interval session in and start crossing things of the chart.

Looking into a couple of local clubs, I need someone to push me a bit, having Dan on Paris training helped a lot. CarlD?

PC, I'm more into dressing up with the Miss Marple look when having a bit of "role play" , those leather man thongs give me an awful rash.
