Lurking no more!
Well done Stripes and Silver.
I'm impressed you went out Stripes after your football, beer and kebab night.
I've taken my Big Girl with me too but she got suddenly very clingy and cried everytime I ran! Not exactly what I was aiming for. I might take a tip from you Silver and bring her bike, that might help.
Hope the Lion King was good.
I'm already itching to get my shoes on and go running again this evening so it won't be long before I'm back at Parkrun even though I said it'll be at least 6 weeks!
Yeah, I concur, popcorn is almost entirely air, it doesn't count.
It was a parkrun event yesterday, 6 weeks was partly because I thought I wouldn't want to do it again so soon and partly because it's an hour away. in Southwick country park, Trowbridge. Also because I'm nursing the baby everyone has to come and poor Mr Mal has to entertain both children in the park alone. He's not used to it and finds it tough. But since I'm already itching to give it another go I wonder if I can exchange a night on the tiles for him on payday with an extra parkrun for me in a couple of weeks.
Hope you manage to go next Saturday.
I can't even imagine taking my 3 1/2 year old to the cinema so hats off to you (unless there's some magic transformation in attention span from age three to four.)
Mal - well done on your race and time, thats excellent I did my first 5K in 35.30 and most recent in 30.58, still not a sub 30 but its amazing how your time improves racing defo spurs you on more
Silver & Stripes - well done on the weekend running, sounds like we all did our bit so pats on the back all round
I did abit on tready Friday but it was irritating a niggle in my thigh muscle so only managed 1.5 miles before stopping. Rested Saturday then y/day did the ressy run 6.52 miles in 1.11, shaved nearly 10mins off my last time so well pleased with that. It felt easier, easier not easy
Silver - nope not near Bedford, if its easier to remember I am in a village about 3 miles from Watford Gap Services on the M1
Well done on the ressy run Boo - thats about 10k isn't it?
It must be great having the ressy on your doorstep as an alternative to street running. I get a bit bored with road running as the scenery is limited. Much prefer running out here in the fields of Oxfordshire where theres stuff to see.
I've loved getting out this weekend, my only regret is not pushing on yesterday to get to 10k myself but even with the run on Saturday it felt good so that gives me a lot of confidence. I hope to get to the club run again tomorrow evening but that will depend on work as the next few days/weeks are looking v. busy.
Got it now - you are near Watford Gap which is nowhere near Bedford. For years when driving down from the North I used to think that Watford Gap was in Watford and I couldn't understand why it took so long to reach London after passing it. Confusing isn't it? - or maybe its just me? Time for a smiley like this me thinks.
Silver - yeah just about, 10K = 6.2 miles. The ressy is lovely and pretty so makes a change, hubby was windsurfing and the sailing club had a big boat race going on. He managed to see me y/day on my way round and give me a wave, thanks to the hi viz top I had on Its a trail rather than tarmac so not as easy and the small stones get in your runners now and again
You will prob find next time you do your run you will go for the 10K, you creep up with the mileage before you know it.
Stripes - I remember only a few weeks ago thinking, will I ever be able to run all the way round the ressy and then only a couple of weeks later I managed it. Its a great feeling ah
Away in Newquay this weekend from Friday to Tuesday so going to try and do a 10 miler. Hubby has windsurfed at Stithians lake there before and its just under 5 miles round so maybe try and do it twice to be honest anything over 7 miles will be new ground for me so wont kill myself if I feel 10 is to much. Also looking forward to running by the sea
I would just like to say
RIP Marco Simoncelli you will be sadly missed in MotoGP
We loved this guy so much
Morning All! Its quiet in here today.
Did anyone get out yesterday or are we all recovering from the weekends exertions!
Didn't know you were a Moto GP fan Booey. I have a good friend who races bikes - not at that level but quite seriously.
One of the guys in the office showed me this - the final lap of the final race of this years championship. Truely amazing stuff. You may well have been at this race but its worth watching again anyway. The commentary is classic.
I did get out for a very little run yesterday but it wasn't feeling good at all so I cut it short and headed home. I decided it's probably better that I went out at all even if it wasn't a full run. Did you get out Silver?
I'm off for a cardiac review today for a heart defect diagnosed at the end of my pregnancy. It caused me no end of trouble at the time but I'm feeling better now.
Silver - yeah we love MotoGP especially love Rossi, him and Simoncelli were the characters of it, such a sad sad loss
Not into Superbikes as much, watched the footage and what a race in the last lap. Will watch again with sound when I get chance
Didn't run y/day was rest day. My knees were hurting when I was in bed last night but seem ok today must be being in the same position for to long my knees do suffer now and gain does anyone elses?
Mal - hey a little run is better than nothing and we all have days when it doesn't feel great so don't be hard on yourself
Hope all goes well with your cardiac review
Club run tonight with DRR then a meeting afterwards
Blimey Mal that sounds serious. Are you ok to be running this much?
Good you got out again after your race but take it easy and remember to listen to your body if you feel aches and pains!
I'm off out with the running club this evening so should be a 5-7 miler again. Can't wait its so much more motivating running with other peeps and I'm somewhere in the middle ability wise.
Hope the visit to the docs is ok.
Here is a pic of me about to finish the Northampton 11 5K, at least you get an idea of what I look like I think my eyes are shut and I am catching flys, I am looking totally gormless haha thank god its not a face close up
The thing that tickled me the most is the photographer took 2 or 3 pics with my hubby directly in the shot (blue tshirt and sunnies) how unlikely is that
Hope you enoy the running clubs tonight Booey and Silver. Well done on the motivation to go. Do you find it easy to keep up with the rest of the runners?
I'm sure the cardiac review will be fine, I'm not experiencing any of the symptoms which led to the diagnosis even when I'm running. I let my GP know what I was up to and nobody seems concerned yet.
We do miss you Boo - you are setting the standards in this thread so we look up to you!
That and you're the oldest one here tee hee!!
