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

Heehee I have my stupid moments, for sure! Owen will confirm :) Working on the Day 1 again, still at least I will do millions of squats over the next 10 years it takes me to remember to complete this one. Buns and thighs!

I work in a wine shop and yesterday was a lot of lifting, carrying, stooping and squatting for me, too. I think I'll follow your lead and start counting those as training sessions. Thanks for the idea and have a great day!

Good plan! Yes usually I am behind my desk, and as a Director of the company I don't carry that much about! Covering for our Purchasing Manager who is on holiday, and our Storeman is also off, so the guys had got a bit swamped. Decided to log it! I love a few hours in Stores, really hard work!

Alex D Exercising at obscure hours Tribe

I work out most mornings and that usually means being outside, whatever the weather!  I certainly feel soooo much better all day when I work out in the morning, as opposed to leaving it until the evening.  I am also happy, and more productive!  Wh...
