820 - that's the whole bar gone and you're still short. Just looked to see how many calories there are in a bar and wished I hadn't.
Hello everyone. I am new to the thread and I would like to join and learn. I have to be honest I do not have any Mental Health Issues. But I am into human performance, I will not go into much detail as yet as I do not want to bore anyone as yet.
So why my interest, I have always been interested in health and human performance. After just turning 50 in a very well paid job, I have decided to change career profile, as a Mental health Nurse, but I am hoping down line I do a Phd in Mental Health with sports performance that if I do well at University.
I start my course on the 18 March 2013, I have passed everything to be given a place. I just started running I have moved just recently from the City of Bath to Manchester. I am a Northerner by Birth anyway Just lived here for 29 years, it is good to be back home.
I have read a few threads now just to get the feel and I have read the artical. At the end of the day this thread can get emotional and I will be mindful of that too, Please give me a knick if I am out of order with any of my comments (which hopefully I never will be).
But sensitivity which may not effect me could do others. So before I do any debating I just want to make sure i am welcomed and happy 2013 to you all.
Hi TR. I'm sure your contributions will be useful and welcome. I was interested in the thread both for help with my depression but also as regards running. I always find things in running magazines like training plans very frustrating to read as my own issues are very different. I have very little prospect of maintaining a training plan. I just have to do what I can when I can so I welcome as much encouragement, support and helpful hints as possible.
Whilst I say you're welcome - in view of your timing I do need to just check - you're not just after my Green and Blacks, are you?
Hello Lincoln runner I like that area actually. I know Newark very well and that place will always have a place in my heart. For many good reasons.
Chocolate Who doesnt like chocolate. The trouble is when I have one I cant stop, so I do not have any.
I do have Physical and Coaching qualifications, all I would say is first and foremost sports and training are there to make you healthy. Anything else is a bonous thank you for the welcome
Ok thank you SOLB I am off to bed now as I have my first Park Run in the Mighty Bolton. I just want to log a 5K time. Hoping for 23 Mins which rewards me a Bronze 22mins Rewards me a Silver and 21 mins will award me a Gold, I wont be eyeballs out because I do not know the route its my first one and it an hard course. But it the experience so I expect a bronze award or nothing
I let the gang know tomorrow have a great weekend and enjoy your training what ever you are doing. Night
Good luck for tomorrow then, TR. I shall be off to an orienteering event near Louth.
2nd confession of the night - the special offer was for two bars of Green and Blacks so I have another.
Hope you are getting real calories, SOLB. You can't live on virtual calories alone.
Hi everyone...new to this thead...spotted Lincoln and Newark and as I'm in the area just thought I'd say hello!
Am battling with the calorie demons at the mo...thinner person still sees chubby one in mirror...sigh...will it ever change...
Anyhoots, off for a 4 mile plod....always cheers me up, no matter how much it hurts
(((((SOLB))))) - gentle non-wakening hug in the hope that you're sleeping by now.
Hi Sharon. Good luck with the run. Good effort there. I never feel up to getting out running this early in the day - but it suits some people. You're welcome to join in with our Virtual Running Club - encouraging each other to get out running at certain times and helping overcome our problems.
Welcome to all the new peeps. Nice to see some new faces around these parts.
Just in case the newbies haven't picked up on it, several of us know each other in real life although I think we all met on the forums first. I don't think that makes us too cliquey but if we are then please say so. We all want to be welcoming and supportive of new blood and all opinions are equally valid.
Welcome Sharon and TR. Please be yourself TR. One of my bug-bears of depression is that people think they have to tread on eggshells round me, which is one reason why I don't tell a lot of people. I want to live in the real world and that means coping with conflict sometimes. I just ask people to give me space if I go quiet to work something through.
I only know SuperCaz in real life but I feel so at home on this thread. I'm fairly well at the moment but this certainly helps to keep me that way. Advice on running would be good too - do you want to be our Virtual Running Club coach TR?
Good Morning everyboyd. As you know I have written very few thread yet. But I would love to learn and understand. Maybe when I am on my Mental Health Nurse course you could even help me with my studies on your honest thoughts.
I am new to running, I am from a Judo and Wrestling background, so I do have an understanding of a lot of sports, which involves managing injuries and nurtition. Running I can do but never raced.
So I am building my running miles up now. I was never big, around 71kg but since have started running I am around 68Kg. One thing I have learned so far with running it easy not to eat. It is also a bad habbit to get into training and not eating do not go hand in hand.
So as the saying goes if you train you must east and drink healhty
I am not from the East Midlands area, but I do kow Newark and Balderton very well. I used to visit often as I knew someone who will always be special to me.
My biggest strength is I am none Judgemental and I am compassionate.
My biggest weakness is I feel I also think to much and think of several different ways for an answer. I am a deep deep deep thinker
I am certainly for be very honest and I can say how it is (being a Lancashire fella by birth)
I have lived in Hampshire, Surrey, Berkshire, Avon, Lancashire, Oxfordshire, North and South Wales, over the last 29 years so if you need to know what some places are like, I can give my views if you want them.
Lastly I think it is great you have made the effort to meet up and carry on chatting on here too. This shows testiment in what you are all about really. Well Done!
I can see where you got your name from TR!
Solb - forgot to say, love the new pic.
I'm sat here still in my jim jams and dressing gown so I suppose I'd better get dressed and do something, much as I would love to sit here all day. First warning sign I think. Any Green and Blacks left?
Oh yes, sorry Frodo. Oops!
Well I've found something to wear, but not got dressed yet and I've loads to do. Think I'll have to identify the magic 3 things to acheive and make sure I do them. First thing, pay my credit card bill. Second thing unpack from the holiday, third thing clean out the chickens. That will do. I'll report back later to say I've done them all.
Two out of the three things done. Just having a tea break before cleaning the chickens.
If you like the black dog drawings there are more here.........the first one is true for me today.
I just had a quick look at the Blag Dog thanks for sharing that with me amongst other things. If you want me to behonest I not sure what the issues are and how long have you had the issues from Birth, history or any other reason.
Does excercise really help you. Is medication used.
I knew someone is has severe depressions and I got her to join a running club. It took me 3 years to get her to join. She loves it and her life has really improved. It wont be long before she is 60 when she is that age she is capable of being in the England running squard that how good she could be.
She loved Glastonbury a lot of people visit there who struggle. I think the place gives people a sense of peace. Again she loved it.
