They're all too fast in the other thread!
Hi FP, have a good time at Palma
Brenda, love the advice, 'eat more bananas' I couldn't have said it better. I will need all your enthusiasm after this half to keep me running (or doing something, anything to keep me fit) as I always hit a big motivational dip after a race.
Sam and Louise hope the stitch and the knee resolve quickly.
Good luck with Sunday Chrissie
If any of you are in the West midlands region I will probably be on the radio on BBC WM shortly after 10am on Sunday morning plugging the charity I am running for. which is this one: this charity
Have a good weekend everyone, I look forward to hearing all about it, will post a race report when i can. currently more concerned with planning race day logistics than worrying about the running .
Not a very motivational post from me. I've had to pull out of HM on Sunday..... the infection is back in my face..... Been to docs this morning who has ruled exercise out for at least a week while I'm on my 3rd lot of antibiotics...... Gutted is not the word as I was soooooo looking forward to it. Had a very tearful morning.....
Good luck FP for Palma..... See you soon.....
Good luck WTK - I will be thinking of you.....
Hope everyone else's runs or races go well at the weekend.....
ChrissieT don't be too disheartened I am sure the next HM is only around the corner.
I hope you get better soon.
Good Luck WTK!!!!
Hugs Chrissie go online and find another hm there must be another one soon even if you have to travel further. Im doing a 10mile on Sunday and a bit scared have done several 10k but feeling wobbly can I manage the 10 miles. Any tips and advice gratefully received.
Brenda, just a word of warning and this is not to put you off. 10 miles is and will feel alot longer than 6 miles. You need to start off very slow for the first few miles, say 3-4 just so you don't burn yourself out. Then if you feel comfortable at the pace you are jogging then see how you feel. Drink as when you need to.
Personally I would have done some practise runs. Say do the 6 miles one week, then the next week 7-8 miles and then 9-10 followed by the 10 race just to build yourself up.
But hey go for it. Does the course have many hills. Do you have access to the map my run of it so you can see the elevation and where the hills are.
Where is the 10 mile run?
Sam, good move and yes you will improve very quickly. I hope that they are all friendly. Let us know how you get on. Looking forward to a few beers tonight. Can't drink saturday as I have the run on sunday.
Chrissie T I am so sorry, I am looking at havign to pull out of my HM so I know how you feel - but health is more important in the long run ( excuse the pun)
Sam I have inadvertantly found a running club at work, the person who runs it was on a course with me this week, she is fab and so supportive, and has got me an appointment with her physio this weekend on the off chance that she can do anything that will get me round my race ( for £30!) I am definitely going to run with them after wards, this lady is like a private coach! She is a world famous psychiatrist as well, very inspiring!
Excellent about the running club, not so good about the half. Hope the club works out okay & the physio can sort things out.
Sorry to hear that. They say things come in threes I think I may be the 3rd to pull out of a race. I had a flu jab yesterday and apart from a sore arm I've got some of the other side effects so I'm not sure about the 10k on Sunday. I know it's the club championships so if I end up pulling out it's going to be disappointing.
Go slowly & you'll be fine.
Good luck with everyone's runs this weekend.
Chrissie, how awful I'm so sorry you've had to pull out.
Flo Po, where've you been hiding - good luck for Palma on Sunday! I'm sure you'll be fine
Louise, I have fingers crossed for your knee.
WTK, good luck to you too
Hello to Brenda, Sam, Speedy G, HM4 - and any lurkers.
I may have just entered the Cambridge half on a whim
ChrissieT really sorry to hear your news especially as you have obviously been putting in lots of training, but as others have said there will be another HM around the corner and your health must come first (however I am feeling your pain).
Sam and Louise good luck with your clubs both sound really positive and friendly.
Louise fingers crossed that the physio may be able to work magic on your knee.
Sam it really sounds like you have pulled one of your transverse abdo muscles, are you doing lots of pilates or sits ups at the moment? It may be wise to give the kettle balls a miss whilst you still have the pain as it may exacerbate the problem??
Brenda good luck on your 10 mile race, hopefully the adrenaline and support of those watching will urge you round. Just take it at a nice easy pace and if you have to have a couple of walk breaks then so be it, after all if its your first 10 mile race then any time will be a PB.
Me, well I did a 6.5 mile tempo run on Thursday, pilates class Friday, and I have a LSR of about 9 miles planned for tomorrow. I am currently considering going out shortly for a 2-3 mile easy run that is if I can prise myself off of my backside!!
Oh Chrissie what a nightmare! But you have take this seriously and look after yourself.
ran 6k today, knee was a little sore throughout but didnt get worse. Still all very up in the air for my HM next week, but looking forward to physio tomorrow.
Husband has his op tomorrow so have to be at the hospital for 7 am - yikes!
good luck Rachel x
Can I just say how nice it is to chat here and see what everyone is up to and how they are coping with various problems along the way.
Rachel look forward to hearing how fast your next 10k is and well done entering the marathon im just building up to a hm next May. You seem to collect teeshirts I collect mugs on my 10ks would like a teeshirt for a change.
Oh Chrissie how aweful huge hugs and at least they know what it is and how to treat it and hopefully you can do your run in December.
I think we are good for each other and made me more determined that I can manage my 10 miles tomorrow and dont care if Im last its the distance i need to do to get a step further towards hm.
Have a good weekend all Brenda
