Poor guy is a glutton for punishment, he's only just done one literally yesterday! Silly sausage.

Ashby 20. It makes Broseley look fat.

I'm assuming you mean 'flat'... in that case, I'll leave it for now ;)

Less than four hours of the shitty bits of training left, then the lovely taper.

Due to pain in my feet and calves and knees, I hadn't done any serious exercise between the end of June last year and Christmas, this lead to me putting on a quite a bit of weight

I started going on walks again in January, and although I have not done as many as I would like, I have still walked over 220km this year. I have also not had any alcohol since about 03:00 on Jan 1st (that's just over 100 days)

Despite that, the last time I weighed myself, I was exactly the same weight I was on Jan 1st

I know it's not all about weight, but I don't feel or look any slimmer either. I think the pain in my lower legs was partly caused by the stress of being the weight I am.

There's no really point to this post, I just wanted to moan about the lack of progress

You are more active than you were, so you must be converting fat to muscle and - even more importantly at this stage! - supportive/connective tissue, and doing cardiovascular improvement.

I fully understand the frustration; I never lost more than 4kg from starting weight 4.5 years ago and in fact weigh more now, no.matter the combination of diet, booze, exercise and illness, I never looked any slimmer or trimmer (and again, look fatter now) but the results absolutely speak for themselves, I move more weight more times and hold better form doing it.

That is intended to say - don't be disheartened, mirrors and scales only tell a specific measure of the truth, not the whole truth.

At about 23 miles there were some fellas waving red pint cups shouting "free beer". I accepted and smashed back half a pint of ale in the final stretches. Way better than the lucazade.

Good job runners! I am very impressed.

There's lots of energy in a half, it's the ideal energy drink. Quick energy, a bit of alcohol to numb the pain and hops to aide the healing process.

Superb!

Not going to lie: running down the final 3km right next to to barriers, hearing the crowd cheer my name and high fiving all the raised hands as I went past was fucking epic.
