Lurking no more!
Love your photos Suzie, you look amazing after running, I'm instantly impressed you had the energy to stand and smile for a photo! Well done, you're obviously very determined. You must be very proud of yourself. But I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing difficulties, I hope you soon get back on top form.
I'm dying to get out for a run, I want to do my usual little route to see if it's got any easier than the last couple of times. I went out yesterday too but it was too dark to run in the countryside. It'll have to wait because I am in charge of the brood + pup so have to wait for Mr Mal to get back from escaping shopping! It's a stressful day at home if shopping on a Saturday sounds like a break!
Managed to complete the race today. 7 miles in 57.56. Results up already and I was 223rd
Great race, found the course much tougher than my first one though with school fields, farm tracks, lots of mud and a long steady uphill stretch coming home. There was no sprint finish today
No goody bag but instead everyone got a proper running T-Shirt as a momento which I am really pleased with.
Stripes that's fantastic, well done! Are you really pleased? Glad you got a proper memento of such a good achievement. What's next?
Silver I did leave them with Mr M, he was understandably terrified as he hardly ever looks after them by himself let alone with the puppy to contend with too. I did make sure all children were fed and settled first and pup tired out and didn't need to go out (ever so considerate!) I was only gone half an hour to Mr's relief.
The loop is 2.5k guess I need an extention since I'm running it pretty comfortably (YAY!) Does Mrs S not like driving? Hope you enjoy your new loop, I better get planning mine, I love running by the river so I'll keep that in there.
Mal, am very pleased, thats as far as I have been so far. I've got another 10k in two weeks, can't wait
Running by the river sounds great but I think I would be tired out before I started with your pre-run routine!
Sabbie, I will treasure the T-Shirt, think I was the only person running today without a club vest or a T from some exotic race over the foothills of the Himalayas
Silver, thats a gutter about the HM, really want you to get a race in. I know I sound like a broken record but am sure you'll get the same buzz from it as I have got from the two I've done.
Blimey I cant keep up with you lot
Suzie - nice to see you back, and well done on the race even though you suffered. Was the GSR a 10 miler then not a HM
I did my local 5K route Fri and Sat and really enjoyed it had a rest day yesterday.
More blood tests and another x-ray of the hands was the result of the Docs visit, so will get that sorted over the next couple of weeks.
Stripes - well done on the race and great time you have proper got the race bug ah I need to get something scheduled for myself but have been waiting for my affiliation number now I have joined the running club, also I am struggling to fit any in before Xmas I need some very local ones
Silver - glad you also managed to get out and sounds like you enjoyed it. I know what you mean about the smells and just being outdoors, its a great feeling of being alone and free
I know I have missed loads out so sorry but I need to crack on with some work so will catch up again in abit
I was thinking of this sort of thing when I mentioned a mid-life crisis!
Although thinking about it I wouldn't say no to a convertible at any age!
Actually he's quite a handsome chap - good luck to him - hope he pulls!
From a womens point of view, I just don't get this whole midlife crisis thingy I am 44 and I have seen most women I know my age infact all women I know around my age do something to make them feel younger I guess
The whole, get a convertible car, have a tattoo get your belly button pierced just makes me laugh.....I just would never do it, but then I am not your typical women
Booey you must be one of a kind! (although we all knew that anyway!)
Mrs S keeps talking about wanting to go clubbing and she buys so many clothes! (although that,s not age dependant)
She even talked about a tummy tuck at one point!
I’m very cool with my age now and I’ve well and truly forgotten about the motorbike. In fact now I’m fit I feel younger than ever. This weekend I ran 7.5k first thing and then played footie with my boy for an hour mid-morning, then went on a bike ride in the pm. I feel like I could go another run today but I’m saving myself for the club run tomorrow evening.
Whats that saying age is just a state of mind!
Oh I am one of a kind o'right lol
My dad has a saying "when you look in the mirror its never going to look any better" haha he is such a pessimist, my mum on the other hand is a real optimist and I defo take after her
