Alex D @alex45674

Began running in 2006 3-4 times a week. I have completed loads of races (about 15 a year) from 5k to Marathon (3 London, 2 Beachy Head), but was not getting any faster or thinner! Started running every day to train for the 5x50 Challenge (5x50.co.uk) in Sept-Oct 2012 and loved it! Completed the challenge and lost 9lb in the process. New 5x50 Challenge starts next March 2015 - join us! I am now hooked on running and love it! Loving the challenges here too, and enjoying buying smaller clothes and throwing out the big things :)

Next challenge is the Folkestone Half Marathon, running in aid of Breast Cancer - to donate please text DEDP95 £amount to 70070 or go to https://www.justgiving.com/AlexPinkHalf

I am hoping to beat my 2009 PB of 2:21:59 set at that course - bring it on!


PBs:
5K 27:16 (2013)
Half 2:21:59
Marathon 5:32:33

So pleased to hear Alex, you are doing well and are getting back in the swing, onwards and upwards. For every good woman, there should be an equally good man :))) hats off to your boyfriend. Me and my wife Sam have a Vitamix which does everything, juices and soups and composts peel after. Enjoy those juices :))

Contributorgold Alex D Cleared to run for further now, I can do 5k max for now! Yippeee! Didn't have a chance to run today, as my Company is doing Wear It Pink Day for Breast Cancer Campaign, and I left home at 7am to get in early, with 106 cupcakes and the decorations to get the place ready! Will run tomorrow morning probably, all the way to the Cathedral and back before I go up to parkrun to help out as usual on a Saturday.

Thanks!!! Very pleased. I am certainly improving day on day, and that dull achy in my shoulder blades has worn off now too. My Chiropractor is really pleased with progress, and I am now on 2 appointments per week rather than 3. All is good!! How are you doing, how are those sinuses?!

So glad to hear that Alex!!! Yay for down appointment too! I am taking the meds the doctor gave me. I am currently okay here and there but really need to see a dentist. I think a lot of my head problems come from my teeth. But I have finished my 101 Goals in 1001 days and I'll be starting it Jan. 1st 2015.... if you want to check it out here http://tribesports.com/guides/101-goals-in-1001-days-my-own-list-starting-jan-1s and maybe it'll motivate you to make your own! :))))))
