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

Alex D Go for an Early morning run. Challenge

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...

Hiya, yes I will run that morning, about 6.15am if all is well!  Not sure on distance, Chiropractor has me limited at the moment to very short (no further than 3km) but will join you for something!

Contributorgold Alex D Morning Runiters! I am now allowed to run, first gentle 1.27km added. Got to take it easy and no more than 3km at once, and this one had to be really short with another check up on Friday. But I am back running woohoo!!! Be adding more at the weekend if all goes well Friday morning.
