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

Contributorgold Kevin G @alex45674 Alex, a Friday night wish that you have a cracking weekend. I have been crazy busy as ever so have fallen down on talking to my friends. I saw you had back / neck issues ( I think) but you seem to have logged some good exercise today, so hoping you are over and ok. I hope December is a good one for you in all ways.
I haven't sent you any dates, I haven't forgot, but this clowns decided to go to a Running School and learn to run properly, I might be a bit old to go back to school or learn a new technique, but if you don't try, you won't find out. Once they give me dates, I will send some promise.
Take care x x

Hi Sweetie! Slowly getting back to normal here yes! Still quite sore but the chiropractor is getting me fixed. Limited to 5k max running at the moment, but am trying a few other bits this week too. Hope you have an awesome December too, and that your running school is good. Be interested to hear how you get on with that! Still at work at the moment just finishing all the month end stuff, and then I am off out with friends from work as one of the girls has a hen night tonight. I will however be driving home afterwards so a dry night for me (I find any form of drinking and driving, even one small glass of wine or whatever utterly unacceptable to be honest). Long day here therefore, I ran just after 6am! Have a fab weekend, take care xxx

Ouch re chiropractor and work in equal measures. I've got to start running from 0km so you may well be running further than me, I have to give it a go and not just resort back to normal technique, the cost should focus my mind lol. Enjoy your night out, I agree with the drink / driving thing and you can still enjoy a night out without drinking (though I can also enjoy a good night out with drinking use in case I sounded a bit mother Therea ish). Get that work done and have a great weekend x x

Only just bought one a hour ago, been meaning to for a while. My first attempt has turned out okay, Just everything from the fridge and a couple of things from the fruit bowl. Mostly trying to eat more greens as I eat loads of fruit already.

Alex D encouraged this.

Enjoy using it! I have a Jason Vale one (with a smoothie maker too). Do peel oranges as the orange bit can be bitter, but leave the pith on. Apples work really well too, pineapples, cucumber. You can put veg in with either and it still tastes great, broccoli stems or spinach. Have fun!

The kids liked watching all the different colour juices coming out but still refused to drink it! Oh well, they are good at eating veggies with their dinner at least. :)
