  1. Couch to 5k done 8 weeks or so ago. 10k race booked for November (now up to 11k distance without stopping). 1/2 marathon booked for March. Edinburgh marathon booked for May. Must be mad but feeling healthier (physical benefits and huge difference to mental health).
  2. Thanks will give it a go in a few weeks when I’m up that way
  3. Great time, well done! Watched it on TV- very jealous. What was different from the traditional course? You just drive down for the day?
  4. @Gnash and @Gaz what is the Stirling Uni parkrun course like? Undulating? Trail/road?
  5. Really good advice thanks. I’m getting people telling me I need a gel every 30 mins during a half marathon!
  6. Help please: Firstly, I’m training for 10k and will then go into a half marathon plan. I’m doing an easy pace ‘long’ run increasing in distance by 10% weekly, an interval run (source of my confusion), a hill run, and a 5k per week. I’m not sure I’m on the right track with interval runs. I want to use these to get some speed in my legs. As part of the above plan (10k then half marathon), what should my interval training look like? Next, I was reading about fuelling (ahead of half marathon work) and the internet is a cavernous cesspit of contradiction. Can someone give me a really basic guide to gels and stuff. I love running for it’s simplicity- I’ve done other sports like golf where I’ve experienced paralysis by analysis and can’t be bothered getting bogged down in this. In my dad’s running days, he got by with water and some segments of orange!
  7. I’d like to produce music for adverts from a home studio.
  8. This Colts thing clearly supports youngsters’ development and indisputably helps to grow the Scottish game.
  9. 4th parkrun for me today- I love this event. Going away for the weekend in a few weeks and have already scoped the closest PR event- nerdy as feck. I ran much more controlled today. My pacing was great- I’m trying to maintain a consistent effort rather than being overly concerned about split times. Fingers crossed for a PB. Noticing some inch loss around my waist (although not lots of weight loss annoyingly). All this running and reasonably sensible eating must pay off at some point… Happy running/jogging folks. ETA- took 61 secs off my best time. Loving getting a PB every week but I know it won’t be this way forever
  10. No but GPS can be really inaccurate especially if there’s trees about. Have fun?
  11. This is a terror attack; This is a terror attack; This is terror attack.
  12. Yet you might have seen it before if you had read the post 8 above mine.
  13. Caley are a bunch of cheating bullying b*****ds and the Ref was a disgrace
  14. Glad you enjoyed it. 3rd parkrun for me today and I got my 3rd PB although paced myself horribly. Broke 35 mins, but it was a real struggle today. Love Parkrun- lots of fun and something to keep you motivated for getting out during the week.
  15. Only if you’re someone who likes people. I am not.
