Hi all came back home yesterday morning ,landed at 3:05am slept for 3 hours on the plane but that was it for sleep in the 24 hour day!! Slept well last night and went for my first run since wed 9th July, boy my legs did itch for the first mile, as the blood was pumping faster than it has been the last two weeks, had to run whilst rubbing my legs was a Vic and Bob shooting stars dance moment!!! 

Managed two laps round, it felt like the three!!! And the dogs were panting like mad too and went in the river on both laps ....

Mel well done on completing c2c, get you jumping straight back into the running, YES remember those stretches!!!

B&T the word bedlam springs to mind, still will be nice when it's done and think of the extra room you'll have..

Waves to every one x

I'm soooooo missing my running, after several weeks of doing 30 miles a week 5 miles 6 days a week......

I'm still on my Greek island enjoying my holiday but missing running!!! Back home on Thursday morning so I may venture out , not for 5 though got to get back into it as have the boys ...can't wait ...enjoying swimming though which is most unlike me, I'm actually venturing in the deep end and going under water with goggles on !!! My daughter is very proud of me !! 

Happy running to all

Basher we are all on runners world, regailing our running prowess to each other cos our families will always be bored of listening to it ( mine are) that's cos they don't understand!! But as runners we will never tire of reading about other runners a achievements and running feats .....Will nip by on your other thread to see how your going, as it's always useful to know how other runners train to see if we can tweak our own training ...

As of last Thursday morning I am safely holidaying on the lovely Greek island of Rhodes for two weeks it's day 4 today and I'm enjoying my rest from running, think I've built a big enough base having run 30 miles a week since May with my dogs ....wonder if they are missing their 5 miles every morning so far?? I am a tad...

Still I'm swimming in the sea and pool, plus doing squats, lunges press ups and plank to try and stay with it!! 

Happy running all or cycling in tillstars case, I'd get saddle sore me!!

Ahapartridge oh dear indeed!! I'm envious actually, as I've wanted to do that marathon, but I've promised myself no marathons as I've got two grandchildren due September and November as my children would like some help with the babies and you just try and stop me kidnapping them for cuddles!! 

Since running brighton then London marathons this year I kept on running and had a 10 km pb at Bristol four weeks after, I've not stopped running, I've been doing 6 mornings a week and racking up 30 miles a week, some weeks a bit more, let's just say my dogs are fit now!! 

Off on my holidays for two weeks on Wednesday and I'm NOT running!!! Going to Rhodes, will be Sun bathing,walking and swimming...

Nice to see new faces on this thread too, I've been on it since 2011 and it proves very positive and encouraging while training, although next year I'm doing the 10km not the marathon but want a sub 50 min maybe even 45 mins so I'll still be running hard, just not so long!!

Wtn Mel surely the words "lady garden" and "69" shouldn't be used in the same sentence !!! 

Sorry couldn't resist!! 

It's starting to get cooler ,yea, I love it hot but boy it takes it out of you when running even at 7 in the morning!!

CW the only time I get in a pool is on holiday, and only to cool down ...respect to all triathletes, I wouldn't mind doing a dualthlon , would you recommend it B&T?

Hi all,

Well done on running in this heat toby and poohbear....it's warm enough first thing for me, like I always say, Sun is for laying in not running in 

B&T yes I'm still running 6 mornings out of 7 I give myself Saturday mornings off, I do 5 miles every morning, as kids have finished school and their exams so I don't need to be in the car for 8:10 in the mornings ,it's soooo nice not to rush in the morning ...

Also on the last week of the fitness challenge and ab challenge, although I've stopped the sit ups as I was losing form, and didn't want to end up with a domed ab muscle !!

Holiday is looming closer, two weeks Wednesday, for 14 days and nights in Rhodes !! Only exercise I shall be doing is swimming and walking!!

I've had a bit of a whirlwind last two weeks, an old school class mate, contacted me on Facebook two weeks ago ,I was his first girlfriend aged 12 aaahhh!! Anyway, we met up the next day and didn't stop talking, and the next and next, after Thursday,decided that we would like to see each other as in dating, so that's it after three years of singledom I'm now dating!! 

He does know that running is my number one passion though

Wtn Mel your c2c training is going well, recommend compede blister plasters for that pesky blighter...

Toby ,good running for you, snowmaiden and poohbear as usual ..

Em-68 New trainers shouldn't rub, they should feel perfect, I'd take them back if you can, I use Brooks though but have never had a blister since using them..

B&T hope all is well

Myself, I ran a total of 6 mornings out of 7 last week as usual and did 30 miles all told, just ticking over ...the dogs are very fit too ....also on day 16 of both ab and fitness challenge, up to the 100s for crunches and sit ups, 60 plus for squats and lunges and burpees, and mountain climber is the best exercise for obliques I swear!!! It burns !!  

Hope everyone is enjoying the sun though...although I agree it's too hot to run in, that's why I'm out at 7am

Wtn Mel yes I would of loved it!! I'm still running at least 5 mornings out of 7 each week, now kids have left school only to go back for exams I can get 5 miles done every time I venture out ....plus I'm doing the press up challenge,ab challenge and fitness challenge too ...

Burpees are horrid!! But it's making me stronger..

Know what you mean about having what you think is a waterproof coat and it's got more holes than a colander !! That's why I prefer running in the rain than walking in it ,at least you stay warm running!! 

B&T I'd love to start doing dualathlons as I'm not keen on swimming, but I'd like to try an ultra to, did I day abseil is all booked, no going back, got to practice hill walking as they have said it's a steep climb up to the top!!

Toby well done on your 10km, it was very warm on Sunday morning, then bugger me the heavens opened in the afternoon, and guess who forgot to shut her sunroof on her car!!

I  ran a leisurely 5 miles at 8 o'clock this morning and it was very warm then!!! I was tempted to join my dogs in the river Thames when they went swimming on every lap round!!

Well done everyone , on all your runs ...
