  • That looks a bit of all right. Where is it? Bournemouth?

    I run alongside an old chemical coking works that's being cleaned, not to mention a tip I run past that's also being cleaned. It's grim oop t'north! LOL

  • Isle of Wight! half my post had disappeared, please see revised version!!! My boyfriend from Bradford so i know what its like kind of!

  • Well done Aliboo!! We are both running further each week and that 10k is approaching. What are foam rollers?

  • its a long foam cylinder that you can use for stretches, for calf exercises you put it under calf and roll up and down on it! still only did around 5 k of running the rest was walking at either end!

  • Thank you I shall be getting one of those!!

  • Hi Aliboo, apart from the tech fail it sounds like things are going really well for you! I am running a little further each time. I do the podcast W9 again sometimes and then run on a bit longer before the walk. Over time I hope to get the speed up a bit. Keep posting- if it lets you! x

  • that sounds like a good idea ! noticed Astilla's post had same problem so at least its not just me! Got new mp3 in the post, the last one was only £2.35 on ebay and lasted quite a while so gone for same again! Glad you are doing well, i'm a bit achy today!

  • Hi Aliboo. Sounds a great achievement. Lovely pic , that hill looks a beast. Surely walking up that after a run is equivalent to jogging a bit further! (Did you get the big breakfast this morning too? ) Hope the aches are fading fast :)

  • had to stop and puff several times its a tough one without running first! had early morning porridge at 7am, had to go straight to work for 11am but did get some nice granola cookies on the way as a treat!! aches are fading ok thanks :) hope you are doing well ?

  • sorry just cicked what you meant ! no fry up for me they have it at greasy spoon half way through cycle ride ! :(

  • Tee hee - love your recap!! You're doing so well with your post grad runs - well done :) I'm out for my second tonight, although not had much sleep this week thanks to poorly daughter so not sure how well it will go!!

  • sure you' ll do well, sounds like forum prob wasn't just me - Astilla had same thing. yes recap had to be brief, it was getting late! but if he wants to get up at 5am to cycle 29 miles then thats his problem !! good luck for tonight ! hope your daughter better soon... :(
