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!

Alex D Hi Chris, thanks for following me! The best of luck with your journey, it is a long road but we will all get there together eh?! I am coming back from a neck/back problem at the moment so my distances are restricted to 3km at one time but slowly improving and will be back on track soon. Have a great day and hope the TS gear you have ordered is as great for you as mine has been for me! :)

Alex D answered the question Should I eat before I go running or should I eat after running?
Whatever works for you. A snack an hour before you go, like a banana, is useful, but some people can eat loads more than that. I find if I eat much more than that close to a run I feel really sick and get awful pain...
