Thanks for the words of welcome
Have been out on my own this morning - 2.5km in 24mins - walking with some small intervals of jogging between lamposts (have not got stop watch yet) - will go slow and steady and should see some improvement in fitness
Today is looking like a good day, my lovely mummy has taken her first solo run, and gone further than we had yesterday Proud of ya!!!! Just remember to take rest days too
I have been out this morning and increased my distance, did 4.02km in 26:56!!! Felt like I could have gone further but didn't want to increase too quick if that makes sense. I had also done 5 mins warm up on stepper and 5 mins cool down on stepper, and increased sit ups and push ups Feeling good now, just need to have a nice soak in the bath as a reward!
Roy - good luck with your run, hope the sausage butty helps
Roy - sounds like you have had a great run, and well done on slowing down. How did you manage it??? Looks like you are doing better for it too, sure with time you'll speed up again though
I'm already expecting mum to be beating me in time, after all she is the one aiming for a HM where I'm just looking at the 10k mark, at least for now
Don't know what is going on with the toes though, never heard of that one. The only logical thing I can think is the fitting of your running shoes maybe?
Just worked out you slowing down, it was the sausage butty
How is everyone else getting on???
went out this morning and instead of doing run 1 walk 1 I just set off nice and steady to see how long I could run.
Was tired at around 15 but wasnt too hard to keep goin for the twenty.
Let there be no misapprehensions my "running" is v v slow - i get passed by people with walking frames.
Still chuffed to have made 20 minutes.
Joe - that is awesome, well done, bet you are so very very proud of yourself and rightly so! The only way is up
Ha ha ha, Roy I'm disappointed you didn't even give the tights a go first Hope the ronhills are better for you, after all running is tough enough without feeling awkward too!
I'm sat at home chilling infront of the tv and my stepper is calling Just not convinced the legs would take it after my run Maybe later
Gem I can't even do morning runs, i think to myself the night before yep i'll deffo get up, then when it comes to the time for it I think nar i'll do it later lol. Keep up good work
My reward tonight was some big fat chocolate fudge cake mmmm!!!
Everyone watching Corry tonighht i hope (Yes i admit i like corry!).
Well done Joe, thats a great effort
and well done Ma'amy for gettin out on your own this morning.
i still haven'/t been out yet. feel like since i took the week out with the sore ankle, i'm feeling a bit aprehensive bout startin back up again, like i've lost the running bug gettin me down. think i just need to physically force myself wither i want to or not then should hopefully feel good about it again. a horrible feeling that i just cant shake on the plus i had was teaching my dance classes tonight for 4 hours solid so atleast got a work out, and my god was it a work out
Roy-Corrie......Tights........lol, i'm getting worried us girls r brushing off o n u hahaha
have good runs all round tomorrow guys
Hey, not long since in from work, well long enough to do sit ups, push ups, cook dinner and scoff it down
Haven't been running today after yesterdays run, however have walked to station and back total of about 3 miles today, going for a run after work tomorrow.
With regards to your questions Roy, I don't watch Corrie, I wear Nike running shoes, got them in 07 so not the most up to date but had them fitted at sweatshop so they seem to do the trick. As for running routes I try to make them to be street routes around where I live, I find it leaves options so I can continue in a different direction or if all going horrible easier to get home if that makes sense.
I did read something in RW today though about if you have a cold from the neck up you can run through it, you only need to worry if from throat down
Cheers Ange it is only neck up so far so i'll probs run on break tomorrow i think. I run with nike Lunar Glide 3's which a bought few weeks ago. I try run solely on the roads by my house try to do a set route, but I may change this and try to run different routes by mine. Only ran once at work but its on very flat land there so may try run round there when I can.
I have to admit I don't like these rest days i feel like I should be out there running. I know they are vital though!!
What do you do for work Ange? Well done for the walk.
I think you should all put in for a park run in a month or so, It was a great motivator for me being around lots of other people who run, seeing what trainers and gear they wear. I'm going to do one again this Saturday as im on lieu day from work .
Oh and Ange what was for tea? I haven't made any yet, you got any left overs
K - get back on it, but remember if it hurts stop its your bodies way of telling you it needs more time!
Roy - Will let you know when I'm ready for a park run coz it'll be princess park I work in a bank so sat behind a desk all day. Dinner was a homemade pasta with tomato, mushroom, spinach, sweetcorn, oh and bbq chicken Yes there are leftovers and no you can't have it coz it's my after run reward for tomoz
Know what you mean about not wanting rest days, takes me more effort to take them than to lace up my running shoes
Mum - sure you'll enjoy which ever you decide, just remember 'effort!' xxx
Feeling so stuffed!
Ange's mum do both!! No in all seriousness i'd love to swim if I had a pool abit closer to me. Try alternate between the both although you aren't going to get massive leg strength from swimming.
MMMmmm that sounds nice, you want a job as a chef? hehe. I'd love to sit down on the job more, never off my feet! Let me know when your up for it i'll give it a whirl.
Anyone got a handkerchief? Achew!
I'm on acid inhibitor tablets at the moment Ange so i can't eat after 7pm its rubbin, I really miss my kebabs, haven't had one in months!!!
Just been out for a stagger around the local reservoir. 24 minutes!! However I bet its not longer than a mile and a half. So someone walking at a decent pace would probably keep up with me, which is kinda embarrassing but I know if I keep at it I will get quicker.
Anyway the last few mins were tough but the dog loved it - especially his paddle at the end to clean his paws.
Hope everyone else is goin well and those of us injured are getting better.
Hey everyone, hope your all well well done Joe
Rachel, i'm doing exactly as you said, and this evening i am gonna bite the bullet. decided to run home from work tonight at 5. not sure how far that is, i'm guessing at maybe 6-7miles but gonna run walk at a good steady pace so i can get my bug back and earn my dinner, so fingers crossed for me. if you's haven't heard back from me after 8pm,. raise the alarm lol.
what did u decide to do Ma'amy, very impressed how well your sticking to this no wonder your proud Ange
Roy-hows the man flu? u gonna live? cause after you peer pressuring everyone into a run i've booked a 5k for 11th of march. closest i could find but gives me 6 weeks to b ready to face it head on excited !!!!!!!
Thanks for all the encouragement.
Have been out for a walk - 3.1km in 39 mins - with some downhill and finish with uphill stretch (Ange - your circuit)
Will keep on going - with slow and steady. Will keep checking how you are all doing
Mum, well done, that's a tough route! I should know. Hope you are still enjoying it, but would say next time you are out do the same route and do some run sections on the straight along to southerlands, then some more run sets along by the fiddlers (that bits downhill too!) Just steady but regular like we have been talking about.
K - It's gone 9pm now, where are you??? Hope you have survived
Roy - guess you're at work with those long shifts, hope you get some runs in soon.
SlowJoe - Well done, sounds like you're doing really well.
All going well today and I can finally say YIPEE My exercise today, 2.43km walking to the station, 2.47km walking home from the station as a warm up for my run of get this: 5.86km in 40:31 Did my warm down on the stepper and did all my sit ups and push ups! As you can prob guess I'm feeling very proud of myself today
Keep running everyone
