  • Long time no post - hope everyone is still OK! First bit of news from me - I passed my driving test yesterday! It's sort of running-related too, as it meant that I could get to a free training session in preparation for the half marathon at th…
  • Henstooth - I could do that one, it was the one after it where you do things with both legs at the same time. Or you're SUPPOSED to if you have legs that want to join in!   Good luck with the 3 peaks!
  • Cardio Abs now done - TWICE as I felt guilty about not doing it last night and it's too blimmin hot to do much else! (I've walked 5 miles today, that's enough exercise now - on with the programme tomorrow ) The one exercise I had a real problem w…
  • Pure Cardio tonight - and wow that was intense, again I enjoyed it though so it was definitely just a false start last week! I switched things round tonight and did my run first (5.7 miles) and Insanity afterwards, it seemed to work better that wa…
  • Ooo I like Cardio Recovery - I feel all nicely stretched now and ready to go again, I have a busy few days coming up but shall try my best to squeeze in a few Insanity sessions (if for no other reason than I really like my banana flavour For Goodnes…
  • Cardio Power and Resistance done - I actually quite enjoyed it! I can already tell I'm going to feel it in my arms tomorrow though, I seem to have lost all the upper body strength I gained earlier in the year. That can only get better though if I k…
  • A day later than planned - but I've started again and just finished the Plyometric Cardio Circuit, and felt pretty good afterwards instead of a trembling wreck like my first attempt! I went a bit easier on the power squats and basketball jumps as…
  • I've decided - I'm starting again on Saturday! I had a great run this morning, and I can almost walk straight too! I tentatively tried a few squats this evening and nothing bad happened - so I tried a couple of my nemesis power squats and although…
  • Still on the injury bench here I'm afraid - I've hardly been able to walk since Friday let alone do anything else! I'm not done yet though, just think I need to recover and take it a bit easier on the next session.
  • Several hours later....and OUCHIEEEEEE!!!!!! I've decided to have a total rest day tomorow as it can only go two ways - either I end up injured, or have a really pointless workout as I can hardly move! I have aches in parts of muscles I didn't eve…
  • I woke up aching absolutely everywhere today - especially my shoulders, but my For Goodness Shakes arrived this morning so I had no excuse not to try the first proper session - Plyometric Cardio Circuit. It sounds so innocent, doesn't it! <<…
  • Yay I have better obliques than I thought! (I've always been good at plank-based things though - I used to do the 10 minute workout DVDs and I was good at the planky obliquey stuff on those too) - I'm not good at jumping though, and my knees were kn…
  • Aaaargh that Shaun T chap is EVIL!!! And he seemed like such a nice bloke too! I've just completed my first fit test and I'm sitting here with a soggy bit of paper that I was crawling over to write down my results. Are the actual workouts that ev…
  • Hi I may be joining you all in the next couple of days along with Mr Cheetah! At the moment my only exercise is running - around 25-30 miles per week. I started doing weights earlier in the year and loved the feeling of gradually getting stronger …
  • I just bounced up a few more actual running threads from page 10million-ish... need coffee then i'll go and find a few more!  
  • bounce!
  • Hi everyone - sorry I've been a bit quiet lately, still running though! Welcome Alibear and Sarah I've been a bit lazy over the bank holiday weekend - I gave myself the night off on Friday to celebrate exceeding my monthly target (I've still been…
  • I got some Nike Structure Triaxs last month, and I love them - feels like I'm running in very comfy slippers! So I think you've made a great choice!
  • Wow, I have no idea where I just got my energy from, but I just did 5.4 miles averaging 9:35m/m - with the hills and everything! (And I saw 8 cats ) Last night it was a nice flat 6.8 miles along the canal with the running club - I did 9.15m/m wit…
  • Ma'amy - I don't have a clue about PCs either, I wouldn't have known that what I got off ebay WAS a PC if Mr Cheetah hadn't told me what I needed hehe! Well done on the walking and good luck when you start adding the runs! Secret Agent - sorry to …
  • Yaaay I'm finally back online! My computer was fixed briefly - then finally  spluttered and died, so I've had to get a new one (luckily Mr Cheetah knows how to build them so he told me what bits to get that make up a computer, so it didn't cost me…
  • Hi Very quick one for me as my computer is poorly and I'm borrowing Mr Cheetah's posh one in the office! I had a few days off running as I've still been coughing up a hairball (made up for it by doing lots of driving though! Not booked that test yet…
  • Welcome to the thread tlwoods! Minty - well done on the running, I thought I was going to have to come and chase you, and I'd be worn out then especially after chasing Ma'amy too!  Secret Agent - hope your chest is feeling better, mine has cleare…
  • Quick one from me tonight too - does anyone remember when I was trying to avaoid going to the Wednesday running group as they did something called "hill repeats"..? Well, tonight I successfully did the hill repeat session - I ran up the hill twice …
  • Now I have man-flu too (I've been coughing up gunk all week and have completely lost my lower vocal register - my voice is a squeaky croak!) I feel a bit better today so I cancelled my doctor's appointment - I have also cancelled my run tonight j…
  • Evening - after a really bad run yesterday evening (5.5 miles, struggled pretty much all the way but only stopped once when I nearly fell over to get my balance back!) - I ran 10.18 miles tonight and loved eery second! It's weird how my running mojo…
  • *taking hint* Fear not, I'm still running! On the Friday of my week off, I decided to shift my long run a bit as I had more time, and managed to set a new distance record - 13.33 miles! (in 02:23:50) My previous longest run was 11.28 miles, and I …
  • OK let's see if this works - the race photos from Saturday are up, and I can't link directly so I'll have to improvise! One is of me in mid-flight after jumping off the last wall (the big black bit behind me that is so tall you can't see the top o…
