Hi guys havne't been posting for a while so thought I would le tyou know what I've up to.
I did the Lasswade 10 yesterday, hills were very difficult but I set a steady pace and I had set myself 3 goals of 1 30 1 40 and 1 45, I did the race in 1 30 so well pleased. I am entered in the Edinburgh Half marathon in two weeks. Beer last night and sitting about resting my legs today.
Only been running since last September and am really enjoying it.
One 1.3 mile SLOW treadmill amble no pain followed by 2 laps of my shorttest loop which is a little of 5k at 3.25 miles in 32:53 totaling 4.55 miles and still no pain.
Current prospects of runing siverstone on sunday high, likelihood of aiming for a PB probably still slim but we'll see. Sense says take it steady stupidity says bollocks to that its a fast course and go for it.
Hi all where is everybody?
EB - did you get in GNR? I did!
and erm for some reason ive entered into the NY marathon - crumbs!
This thread is looking eerily quiet - I hope everybody is okay.

It's around now that it's normal to start sh*tting ones pants?

11 weeks till Edinburgh Marathon EEKKKK.
they sent us an email saying they had moved the expo about 1 kilometre up the road, a 10 minute walk...and they have a bus incase any of us can't manage the extra walk lol
Andy - love your avatar and 2 in a row look even better - formation dancing team.Em- I'm doing well, ankle is well and truly on the mend. Managed 2 runs (well walk/runs) last week and had a little run during my PT sesh tonight as I didn't manage it last night, as I was out.I went to see Squeeze - pretty sure everyone here is waaaay too young to remember them - they were around in the late 70s/80s, sang 'cool for cats' and 'up the junction'. It was a real walk down memory lane, but it was one of the best gigs I have seen in a long time, fantastic songs, fantastic musicians, loved every minute
