Run Fatboy, Run



  • I'm afraid wine/alcohol is one of the few vices I don't have image

    Now, a bath with a 100g bar of extra smooth Lindt chocolate OMG image

    Lol, doesn't the choc melt in the bathroom? image 

    Agreed though, radox is also good stuff image

  • Week 6 run 2 completed. Ouch!

    The running was actually good, I didn't feel tired, I was even tempted to ignore the command to walk in the middle, but my right ankle and/or shin started saying Yoyoyo fuk this for a lark! so I stuck to the plan.

    I did have a slight cardiovascular crisis when, just as I was going to begin the final run, two joggers went past, so my ego (god!) made me overtake them...the pace of course was eeeek and I couldn't slow down until I got round the corner' image
  • Cinders the chocolate doesn't last long enough to melt image

    Lol and call that speedwork re the joggers image
  • You should find that the aching shins and whatnot will pass in time - I think it was about week 8 for me - I still get achy limbs, but not in the same way I did initially when I wondered if I was doing myself an injury...
  • Cinders haha cool ok

    Bees: I hope so, it's not severe but it hasn't been going away since January!

    Does anyone go running with their Sweatshop? The Reading one does two a week, one for the not advanced...
  • That speeding up when you see other runners thing may or may not go away.

    I use other runners, cyclists, buses ( yes i know mad) as a bit of Fartlek running.

    Tonight there was one cyclist, over took him on the flat ( oh yeah) and a whole group of runners, but they were not going so fast.

    Oh i would make a terrible running partner as I am a mixer of if only I trained more I could be in the Olympics (yeah right!) and mad as a Gibbon  chase the bus, chase the bus, last one to the bus stop has to run the next mile backwards!

    Not good.

    Have you ever tried Lindt  white chocolate balls?

    Someone bought some in to work over Christmas I has a fewimage

    My capacity for chocolate is only limited by my lactose intolerance.

    No really. I puff up like a balloon.

  • Luckily I think buses are beyond me for quite a while!

    Dude those Lindt melt in the middle white choc things are goooood.
  • Eeek 25 mins running tonight non-stop and from here on out there'll be no more walking!
  • You'll be grand. image  I recall at that stage I did take one or two 30sec walking breaks when I felt I really did need them.  There's no guilt in walking if you really need to, I used to beat myself up about it!

    Enjoy your run and Let us know how you get on.

    Evie's right. No harm in a walk break if needed. Enjoy your run later image

    image You will love it. image
  • Thanks guys, we shall see!

    Cake: well it does seem to me that I'm a grade-A masochist - I either 'hurt' my body with naughty naughty food or with evil exercise! image
  • A touch of the cheeky walk never did anyone any harm. Once I got onto the solid running bit of my programme, I used to sometimes need a bit of a walk - maybe to have a drink, 'cos I'm useless at doing that on the move...
  • I don't run far enough to need to take water with me image but that's good because I really hate having to carry anything when running
  • Holy Shizzle I did it without stopping...moreover some freaky imp sprite or demon took over and I continued without stopping until 30 mins...!

    My lungs did jump out of my mouth to see what was going on, and my right shin is imminently going to shatter, but it's pretty good for an 18 stone fatty!
  • Good work there - the "doing a bit extra" thing happens to me too, I reckon it's the warm fuzzy high from endorphins. Feels good though, don't it?
  • It does! (ow, ow)

    About half-way through I just became sort of 'balanced', in that it wasn't getting harder, and whilst not easy, it felt sustainable, so I sort of knew I could manage to continue.

  • I call that "progress". image

    Great going image

    Intrigued by your *cheeky walk* PBAB image

  • You'd have to see it to believe it, Cinders. It's quite cheeky. Almost rude...
  • You mean you guys also run in the new Jack Wills cheekless jogging bottoms?!
  • Congrats on the run today, that's fantastic! image
  • Thanks Evie, luckily I don't have to run again until Saturday image
  • What an inspiring thread Tobyloby...

    I've been running for 5 years now after a mid-life break of 20 years... image

    Every year I find it tough to run after a winter break (due to snow and ice and wanting my injuries to heal). But threads like this make me want to run ever more...

    I have a half marathon in June (I do 2 or 3 a year now) and have just started back running this season. If I have your great attitude I'll be fine. Like you 5 years ago I started out with 10 minute runs and it went from there... and yes... there is always pain somewhere... no matter how fit you get... image
  • Thanks Nick image

    I had an early-life break from running, from 0-30 years image

    Morning image

    So how far is planned for tomorrow TL?

  • At least 30 mins, I think, but I'm not going to be strict, as long as I still complete the minimum my app program requires.

    Though I'm still sore/aching!
  • Ibulprofen is a wunderful thing sometimes mate if you need it. image
