20 lbs sounds like a lot of weight to lose, are you a big guy? I know a guy I hiked with who lost 25kg (55lb) and he's still pretty big so he must have been huge. I never knew him as his previous weight but others tell me he was pretty obese. Well done at losing that weight and hope you keep it up and, yes, the stretching and cooling down is really important.

At one point, I thought I'd never stopped being a runner, but then all the shit with the divorce and taking care of my dad came about so I stopped. I want to get back to where I can play full court hoops, which is the same reason I started running all those years ago.


Good man, sloop. Sounds a lot like me - i'm not really a runner, not deep down. I'll run to keep keep fit and keep my endorphin levels up, and i'll do a long-distance like the 10K now to challenge myself, but it's all about staying in the proper shape to play soccer, Aussie rules footy, tennis, squash et al. the way i want to.
Great job losing all that weight and hope you can keep it off. Kicking the booze will definitely help.

Just under a week to go, and feeling ok physically so far. A couple of little aches in the feet but nothing big. Hope to do some running every day for the next 10 days to put in a last solid block of training, before easing off for the last 2-3 days.

One week to go.

Been running almost every day, hopefully the weather doesn't get too wet or cold in the week ahead so i can get a last solid block of training in. Working everyday this week, so will have to do my runs at about 8.30 ~9 pm after i've done all work and family stuff.

Wet weather forecast all week so I hope it doesn't interfere with the training.

Yeah, i really hope not. If i can keep training strongly for the next 4-5 days, i think i could really push my PB time.

I've lost 61 pounds in the past nine months. Daily walking was part of my regimen. From 275 down to 214.

WOW! Fantastic, Velvis. That must be making such a difference in your general day to day life.
Are you doing hikes and stuff as well as walking around your neighbourhood?

We have a nice country bike trail in my town that goes through ten miles of woods. That's where I do my walking.

Sounds ideal! Post some pics if you ever take snaps on your walks.

30 mins. to race time. It's a bit breezy but no rain, and the temp. feels just right for a run.

Yes perfect temp for running. Good luck.

By the time you finish I'll be up in the hills where it's just thick fog :cry: . But first dim sum......

Well, it's done and i'm still alive!

Sadly i don't think i beat my PB; i crossed the line at around 49 mins. i think, so about 30 secs. - 1 min. over last year's time. Got a stitch at around the 4 bloody km mark, and it cost me that 1-2 mins. in the middle section.

I finished relatively strongly though, so overall a good run if not great. Not feeling any injury niggles, so that's a plus too. Now for a hearty breakfast! :)

Well done Ange, that's a decent time. Any finish line photos?

I'll have a look for some when the results are posted next week. Yeah, it's a decent time, but i still can't help feel a bit disappointed that i couldn't break my PB, considering my running has been strong and pretty regular the last few weeks. I've been running it over in my mind to see where the problem is, and it's obviously my core. I should have done more sit-ups to build core strength, and maybe watched my diet a bit more in the last fortnight to lose another kg or so. That might have made the difference. It certainly wasn't my legs - after the race in Nov. '15, my hammies, quads and calfs felt like rocks for 2-3 days, whereas today i feel absolutely fine, which tells me my legs were well prepared. So, a good course of sit-ups and crunches will be part of the training for sure next time!
