Cabbey I wish losing the calories where that simple for me but as I don't drink, I have black coffee with sweetner and have a little bit of chocolate at night, I have to look elsewhere for them. I am trying not to pick between meals and have protein shakes for the snack moments. (at least giving my body something good!)
Min I'm not sure what I am going to bring on Sunday, I will probably raid the bakery in Woodhall spa as they do some fabulous olive bread and french granary bread and meats......and cakes..... and scones....ooohhh must resist!
Moley says he is definately feeling the results of not running at the moment, hence the dive in with both feet approach!
Quaker Im please your shoulder isn't hindering the running too much.
hello my little chickadees.
hows the shoulder today Q?
I don't snack between meals - the only thing I could cut out would be my booze but I feel I have to have some enjoyment in life!
it's been aching all day min except when i went out for a run this morning it was fine
Hi all. Glad to hear I am not the only one who thinks they need to lose a few pounds (although I am sure you're all lovely and slim really) - in some ways I think it would be easier if I had a couple of stone to lose and shocking eating habbits, when in reality it's only a couple of pounds and I eat fairly well already. Picking during the day is my main downfall - especially when I'm bored at work! Ditching the wine would probably sort me out altogether but like Min I'm keeping it as a treat!
Hope the shoulder gets better soon Q.
Was the 5km PB part of a tri RP? If so I am even more in awe of you!
Are people racing this weekend? If so lots and lots of luck to you all. May be a bit of a hot one I think!
I'm running again now but finding it a bit tough - not sure if it's just post-marathon fatigue (although surely that should be gone by now?) or I did have a bit of a cold so might just be post viral. Luckily I have lots of time to recover now and am just enjoying running because I enjoy it which feels great!
It's the weeeeeeeeeeeeeekend already (nearly)
BecX yes the 5k was part of the tri and my hat goes off to you, I still need to break the 4 hr mark for the marathon...hopefully it will be my year!
Min all set for Sunday?
Picnic was fab Cabbey - far too much food, as always but good company and lots of laughs .
How was your weekend?
Fab photo Min...looking very fit!
Fabulous photo Min - you look like you're having a stroll in the park! You must be on for sub 4 hours RP - pretty sure you're faster than me at every other distance so if I can do it I know you can! What's the Outlaw run leg like as a course? PB potential??
I now have a proper cold which does at least explain why running has felt so tough. Having a few more easy days to recover. Hoping I feel better soon as I am itching to get back into proper training - plan is to focus on the shorter stuff for a while see if I can develop some speed!
only 18½ weeks til hamsterjam so i trust everyone has their training schedules all sorted .
No sneezing over the thread please BecX - keep them germs to yourself! But wishing you a speedy recovery.
How's the shoulder Q?
How're you doing Mad? How's your foot?
shoulders aches on a morning and long runs but on shorter runs its ok
I was just thinking about it only being 18 weeks ish to the marathon Min. I sorted a programme out for Big Abbs and he seemed surprised at all the work he has to do for a sub 4.... welcome to real world my dear Maybe there will be Becx, RP and Big Abbs all running together eh? Save me a seat for when I finally plod in on a run/walk strategy please
Try going in a sauna Q... maybe the heat will help it a bit
Healing vibes sent in your direction too Becx
Hello all, just chilling before I go out and do a 20 miler
BecX the outlaw run leg is potentially a P.B course as it is reasonably flat and is a 3 loop course, lots of support as well!
You back yet RP?
Just off to attempt a bimble with Odie in my new x-socks, courtesy of Cabbey
just off to londonium for the weekend with an old girlfriend so i expect much consumption of bubbles
hope everyone has a good weekend, see you monday *waves*
Min I did get back from the run but it was last run for this week as OH has b*ggered off to Bala for the weekend to do a triathlon, so I am home alone with the boys.......help
Are you still sane RP?!
Hope everyone had a good weekend as i did!
Happy Anniversary Cabbey and Taggy Gee
Thank you Min and thanks for your card
