*waves back to Nam*
The Cardiff half was my very first half and the stadium finish was great - felt like a proper athlete I thought of doing the half again but without the stadium finish it wouldn't have been the same. I must do more races in Wales, the only other i've done (twice now) is the Porthcawl Boxing Day Run. Can you recommend any? Btw I spent my student days in Cardiff (Physio school), had a flat in Roath
OMG Yvonne, fabulous weight loss!!
I was Yvonne J before marriage too . Both pre and post marriage names were/are Welsh too, but hubby's Irish and dad's family are Lancastrian.
I've got a 10 miler in early Feb to train up for after sh*gging my ankle in September, currently managing 5-6 miles in one go, with 1-2 walk breaks.
You were both Yvonne Jenkins and now you're both Yvonne Meany???????
>>wonders what the statistical likelyhood of that is<<
it reminds me of when i hear the name loton (maiden name). we are a dying breed
watching monty python for first time! life of brian x
Oh. My. God. Just looked at Yvonne's before and after pictures. They're incredible! Might have to root out that Paul McKenna book and CD again. Used find his voice a bit too soothing though....put me to sleep! He was my pre-exam relaxation CD a couple of years ago. Didn't get any skinnier though
kwilter - money situ meant i couldn't apply for any races pre feb. now we got paid i cud do hoe 10. think i will get form off hubbys puter (im not printer capable).
want boypea to do fun run as a confidence building excersise. so gonna put it in post soon (promise!!)
Yvonne is not That common a name, is it Kwilter and my hubby folks are irish too, he was born in london though. I'm on the red wine myself (prob not the best thing with the 10K tomorrow!)
Thanks for the race info Nam, I've thought about some of the Swansea ones but dates have clashed with other things etc Haven't heard of the san Domenico before though - will have to google - would like to do a 20 mile race. i want to do a least 4 marathons in 2008. (I can't believe i just said that )
mmmmm looks very tempting, Nam - though looking at last years times I could well be last. My 20 mile yesterday took 4 hours on my treadmill
The cat has gone to sleep on my lap so I'm stuck here at the computer, luckily I've got a glass of red wine
Yvonne: That's alright!! You'd probably still be on for a sub-5 mara... which is heaps better than anything I could pull out of the bag at the moment!!
Corker: Take your time babe. Whenever you feel ready. The "more yoga" and "more strength training" is definetely on my program!!! I used to be able to squat 60kg to parallel and bench 30kg....
Yikes, Nam! That's pretty impressive!
Will be nice and sensible and just eat proper food I think. Nothing crazy/faddish. Keep going to gym but increase strength training etc. Will step on evil box of disappointment in time.... We were sworn enemies for a while and haven't quite recovered!
If I survive the marathon in Jan then I think I'll give it a go. it looks like you run down the valley then back up??? When I visit my Mum I run on the cycle track up and down the Garw valley. Only done 1 marathon but managed 4:51:10 - was very happy with that
Nearly midnight - Hope you all have a Very Happy New Year - see you tomorrow
Part of the problem is being in a relationship.... Of course being in a relationship in itself isn't a problem and I'm really glad I met TT.... but what I'm trying to say is when I was single I was hardly ever in.... Always out doing stuff, spending hours in the gym... most of my friends are into sports... 2 close friends are RPM / Body Pump instructors, another mate is a competition level body builder/weight lifter, another is an elite runner, lots of other people I used to train with... if we were bored on a weekend we used the studio in the gym to set up ridiculous circuits, do plank competitions etc etc... now that I spend more time with one person I simply do less of that...
Plus when I'm on my own I'll often just make some beans on toast whereas when TT is here I'll cook nice meals...
To all future "Losers" on this thread.... xx
Yes Corker we'll work something out. It's new to both of us.
Are you still at work, chicken??
