Evening all, hope you are all doing well and that the runs are being kind
I have today been to collect my cross trainer and its now all set up waiting to be used tomorrow for my warm up to my first run
Rachel - as for running 3 days, if you pace yourself you should be fine, but remember to listen to your body
Roy - sorry forgot to call in and clean when I was over the water today, but you know after spending 2 days sorting one room at mine, I haven't got the energy Did bring back lots of memories driving through liverpool though
Hope to hear/read all your running reports soon
I like the style, sorry, been one of those days.
K - enjoy the 3 days
.......................Hi, my name's Kirstin, and i'm a running failure
Never made it out today........i know, not worthy, Jock weather roy is not dissimilar to when you walk around in the frozen foods section in the supermarket.......except unfortunately we don't get the sweet relief of going to the oven fresh section for a warm up. icey cold just now, got things to go over my trainers though for the snow or ice, lol...its a hott look.....much like the late night runs in the shorts Roy lolol. only kiddin.
Maam, big day is tomorrow....very excited for you!!! can't wait to hear how you get on.
so, need to punish myself tomorrow. gonna stay out twice as long as i'm scheduled to tomorrow, try run as much of that as i can. was supposed to be 45 mins so doing an hour and a half. got a 10 k route that i used to cover in just under an hour, will probs take me the hour and a half now. no pain no gain.
as for the wine guys......what you tryin to do to me........actually have had to just lock myself in my room to keep , my self from cracking open the merlot......what i'd give for a wee Tinto Lemonado...ice cold.
Happy belated birthday gem good plan getting out, your meal will taste better after your run unlike my dinner tonight, it was bitter with disappointment haha.
Roy....at what point did shorts in January seem like a good idea hahaha shrinkage...too funny!
was just a walking zombie today, work was hectic.....and instead of just throwing my running gear on the second i got in so i didn't have time to sit down........i lay down......lay down and slept woke up at 10 now i feel as low as a bow-legged caterpillar lol, not a good feeling have to get back on the horse tomorrow with a hop skip and a jump.
roughly how long are you managing to canter through your 4 miles? the route i'm going tomorrow will b between 6 n 7 miles but will be at my slow ass pace. x
ahahahaha asda bags, lol......would probably fit right in round these parts lol.
33 mins, thats amazin, so your clearing a mile in bout 8 mins, great going i usually do just get the gear on straight away but tonight i was just totally spent, infuriating thing is i know i'd feel so much better for it now if i'd just went for it, tired or not u got monday off? hahahaha everyone will be finishin their runs with a stretchin sesh beside the cooked chickens in morrisons. need to get the thermal briefs on roy lol.
Also, for the ladies, just seen an article in paper for good sports gear and Kelly Holmes (the Dame) has launched a line of sports bras for sainsburies clothing range Tu, retailing at 10 quid, look pretty good, same general shape as the shock absorbers but atleast 15 quid cheaper. maybe worth a look???
EUGHHH!!!!!! not the mankini lolol...........
Wish I felt safer running in the dark or i'd go a run now......wide awake, i'm such an idiot, kicking myself now x
What a way to start the morning! I've got up so I can go for my run, after warming up on the nice new cross trainer but though get up early enough to have a musli bar for a bit of energy then come online for a bit before heading out, how much you have made me laugh and given me enthusiasm to go out where it looks white and frosty! Got to admit, going shopping will never be the same again, oh, and it's cooked chicken for dinner tonight
Must confess the talk of wine does make me want to open a nice bottle of rose, but before 8am and a run prob not best time
Roy - what super gym am I opening???? I though I just had a back bedroom, just coz it has stepper, cross trainer, gym ball and a selection of weights in it, not to mention the punch bag in the garage. Carl (my other half) is into boxing and weights so seems a fair split As for not wearing tights, you could try jogging bottoms! Freezing just isn't fun, says me about to go out in it.
Gem - sounds like you had a good birthday and having it the day before hubby, that just sounds like party time
And ladies, as for missing a running day for whatever reason, don't beat yourselves up, we all have times like that and it doesn't mean you need to do extra the next session. That's how injuries can happen. Just stick to your plan and build up gradually!!! Hey - that sounded like I might even know what I'm talking about.
Oh well, better go finish getting ready now. Plan to start the training at just gone 8 so will report back soon.
Very happy running everyone
My first run of 2012 is now completed, YIPEE!!!!! I did a 5 min warm up on the cross trainer, then ran 2.2 miles in 24:27 without stopping, cooled down for 5 mins on the stepper then did my sit ups and push ups, all in all a good morning and I'm feeling fantastic
I know my speed may not be the quickest, but after illness and injury didn't want to push it. Felt so cold out, thought my ribs had frozen!
Roy - a guy passed me running in shorts! Can't imagine the shrinkage, I was in full length tights and long sleved top and was freezing!
Gem - good on you getting out, hope your having a good run.
Now to get ready for my breakfast, Sundays are cafe day and I vowed unless I did a full run I wasn't going, so best get going
Gem - brilliant effort, sounds like the run I used to do in manchester along the shipping canal, although not for as far! Very impressed with your run, and a bit jealous. I'm still learning the area where I live now so run along a main A road better than nothing though and it is a mental boost when you turn round half way
Don't blame you for the birthday treats, you deserve them. I need to put my shoes on as the guys are ready to go for brekkie and I must admit, I'm starving!
Have a great day everyone, after all it is a beautiful day! I'm definately feeling good for my run
Hi all, sounds like it is definately a running day!
Prue: If you're looking at 5k you could start by doing parkruns, they are 5k and free. I just googled parkrun to find my nearest one. From what I understand with them is you can even sign up on the day! As for other races I'm not sure as I haven't looked for any myself. How much running have you done? What distance do you normallly cover, even if on a treadmill? Tready's are useful so please don't take that as a sarcastic reply
Rachel - sounds like you are really getting on with witht he C25k, and more importantly enjoying it!
Hope you all have a good day, I'm off to fix my cross trainer, it is catching a bit. Doesn't stop it working, more annoying than anything else Can't complain for £25 though
WWWOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! MAAM, WELL DONE!!!!! u must be buzzing
Everyone has had a good day by sounds of things
I've got to admit i'm just up hahaha, terrible i no
going out in about an hour for my run. looking forward to it deciding wither to take the pup with me or not, sometimes he's really good and gets a right good exercixe then sleeps all night, other times he's an absolute nuiscence lol,
Welcome Pure hopefully you'll get the running bug, though if your enjoying TM then keep with it x
