Gerard, nice work on the weight loss. How tall are you? What's the extent of the smoking habit? Regular, social or just raging drunk?
Sounds fun, OO. Good luck.
Non running day for me then due to weekend plans I will be doing my long run tomorrow as I am off work. Looks like I will dodge the crap weather for it which is good.
I've already refreshed my yahoo about 5 times today hoping for a Berlin e-mail. Could be an impatient couple of days.
OO- Looking on FB page e-mails have landed!
Gerard, I am similar in that i'm 5'8 and 70kg at best race weight. I think 50 of those kg are in my legs as they are anything but typical distance runner.
Those numbers being cut are a sure fire short cut to faster times. A regular daily habit like that will being playing its part. Are you not at least able to just cut out the sober smoking? If you can go all day at work then it suggests you can, though you then need to be careful not to up your drinking to justify smoking.
No Berlin rejection here - but then I didn't get around to applying. Good luck to those that haven't heard yet.
Good to hear you're giving up the smoking GM - it'll do you the world of good.
On the weight front, I seem to have added a few kg over the last few months - so now 10kg over Brighton Marathon weight (73Kg). So a bit of discipline required over the next few months!
A steady 11 miles on the treadmill for me tonight. Bit of a swetfest at the end so need to venture outside soon ...
Congrats on Berlin Stevie and commiserations to those that
didn’t get in.
Good luck Gul on your yearly mile target. I need 270 in
December to reach my goal of 3670, which would mean my daily average over 2
years would be 10 miles.
I’m 6 feet tall and weighed 148 lbs (67kg) this morning. I’ve managed to maintain race weight since Berlin but this will change over xmas!
A steady Sub 38 should be fine Badbark!
200 miles for me in November after 21 in October and zero in September. Still on 2,300 miles for the year to date so may get up to 2,500 for the year which may well be my biggest ever.
I make it 1.5 stone DT but it sounds less in kilogrammes!
I ran my PB at 80Kg but c. 73kg would be a better weight for the Newton Hills.
I'm planning to run Boston in April 2019 OO, but I need a few more weeks of training under the belt before I commit to flights and accommodation.
Another treadmill session tonight - 8 miles progressive finishing at 6:55 m/m pace. I'm struggling to get out during the day and running in the dark is a bit tricky given the lack of streetlamps - hence the treadmill! At least the Sunday long run will be outside.
