Not been running as much as Id like but have been walking miles - dog thinks its k9 Xmas!!
Anyway today we did walk 1 run 1 10x then
DRUM ROLL PLEASE
Run 4 walk 2.
Thats nearly a marathon (at least a snickers?)
Going for a soak now and then a few hours kip b4 work.
Hope u are all doing well.
Was in the park on Tuesday with the dog about 06-30.
Saw a load of flashing lights approaching me on the path and thought I was gonna be alien abducted with all the probes etc.
Turns out it was a load of lunatics doing the boot camp fitness thing with lights strapped to their heads!!
How I laughed - once Id gone home to change my trousers anyway.
hey all, i'm having a very unproductive day in work today, hope you all are too
APM thats amazing, cant believe you've already done marathon, if i can get my ankle back into action then thats what i'm aiming towards i also run at night and to b honest not in the best lit route, but i have to listen to music, i hate tuning into things like my breathing or the sound of my trainers hitting the ground and things lolol, so i just wear a high viz vest and run and hope i don't run into trouble lol,
As for weight watchers, i've tried it a couple of things but i just cant be doing with the point counting if i'm totally honest, but i think different diets have different things to suit everyone, and its clearly suiting you really well if you've lost that much so quickly, well done
Joe, apparently walking is just as good a running, or so my superfit uncle tells me all the time, so good for you for still getting out. what kind of dog do you have?
Roy-is today the breaking out of the leggings haha, what restaurants do they have in Glasgow then? xx
k anne - i have a border collie x labrador - he is insatiable. He can run for hours come home lie down for 5 minutes then wants to do it again!!
Rachel - the aliens were very scary. Keep an eye out for them!!
Lol the uppercrusts of Glasgow, no haven't heard of them, i don't darken the doorways of these areas lol, more for the well to do hahaha, look out for them though if ever i jump on the wrong bus.
Just found out there is a sweatshop in GLasgow YAY!!! its in the afore mentioned Bearsden tho unfortunately so i'll have to look my best and mind my P's and Q's.
Joe your dog sounds like a dream lol, how do you feel about fostering an extremely hyperactive though loving pup for a week and see if you can get him to be just as well behaved cause i'm struggling lol. love him when he's sleeping though, angel lol x
Feel like I've been gone a week with all the chatting going on
Sorry, but read so much can't remember who has said what, I have a memeory like a seive! I am however impressed with the having run a mara before, not that it is something that I'd want to do, but impressed non the less.
Well done on the weight loss! Agree though, can see inches not necessarily on the scales, and always remember muscle weighs more than fat! I weighed myself on New Years Day and said it would be the first of every month so will see how it goes.
Did another run today, same route as I did on Sunday (c. 3.5k) and given I had forgotten to take my inhaler before I went, and that I had walked to the train station this morning and used the walk home as my warm up I was well impressed at bringing my time down from 24:27 to 22:12!!!!!
As for the Garmin, totally love it, wouldn't change it and certainly wouldn't be without it!!!! If you've got one or are thinking of one, all I can say is, 'Good Move!'
Next run planned for Friday before heading north to see my family. Dad's just had his knee replaced. Mum is still saying she wants to start so I'm planning on taking her out at the weekend for her first session. I'm not so sure she'll stick to it, but she says she wants to try so will see how it goes
Roy - Glad to see you are giving the tights ago, let us know how you get on with it.
K - go for the rest, it really is a good idea! Ice, rest and elevate is what I was told when I did mine.
Can't wait to run again
hey well done on run ange thats brill, great time
I'm gettin very bored of resting now, but reckon should just hold off another few days n try head out again on monday, still feel an ache when i'm walking walkin which sucks. feels like i'm just sittin about gaining weight lolol.
good luck with lunch break run roy
i reckon everyone will recommend diff things so suppose its just gonna b down to what suits you, but if i'm bein totally honest, and if i were in your situation, i would probs go out with my sis then go out later and do where i'm at in the training plan.....only because your saying you feel fit enough, and i'm quite tough on myself so i no for a fact thats what i would day. way i see it, the programme i'm doing, i do the run for however long is allocated that day, but also in that day i might do a gym class and will probably be out with the dog a couple of times as well, so still doing more exercise than what schedule is saying.
entirely upto you though, as loong as it doesn't become too hard, or painful in anyway, and that it doesn't jeopradise your training in anyway...if ur sis has a day she doesnt wanna go out, her loss, she obvioiusly doesn't want it enough, and y should u lose out in doing something you enjoy ............is it obvious yet that i have a sister lolol. anyway, what ever u decide will be whats right for yiu, i'm sure there will be some folk that will disagree with my opinion and thats the whole point in this thread getting everyones opinions and keeping motivated together. Good Luck xx
