Lurking no more!
Oh! It seems I accidently hit the ‘ignore member’ button.
Sorry Sabbie don’t hold it against me.
Ha ha, I reckon all the Tattoo talk has scrambled your brain Silver
Booey, I was worried that the race on Sunday would be rather serious as it was the annual race of a running club but it turned out fine. Maybe there were less 'fun runners' than the first one I did but everyone was very friendly and it was really well organised and marshalled. Only difference was this time I finished nearer last than first
Am trying to find a race to aim for in January that would be my last prep for the HM on February 19th but am struggling. Was considering the 'Stourbridge Stagger' a 10 mile race that is less than an hour away from me, until I discovered that it included climbing over several stiles
Just checked out that race Silver, you ought to go for it if you can. Sounds perfect.
I know I am childish but I love the name 'Herberts Hole' . I gather its the name of a valley?
On Sunday I ran along 'Butt Hole Lane' and am still giggling about it now
Stripes maybe that's partly my problem, being scared of being last all the races I have done so far have been charity organised or similar and I have always seemed to stay more or less in the middle of the pack
One of the chaps who runs the running club came in last once he said your not a true runner until you experience coming last that made me feel better haha
Butt Hole Lane hahahahahah thats well funny
Butt Hole Lane - that’s a classic Stripes.
I have to say in this part of the world everything is ‘bottom this’ or ‘hole that’.
I’ve just looked again it seems to be a bit of a grueller – no level paths apparently all up and downhill. We train in the Lowndes Park at the beginning and I know that’s a real slope and a drag out of the town.
I agree with Boo on the quality of runners – I don’t mind coming down the field but I wouldn’t want to come last especially when I run with these guys every week.
I must admit I am scared of being last as well but I checked out results from previous years races and was hopeful I wouldn't be
There were lots of older runners in Sunday's race who would no doubt have spanked me in their prime but are maybe not as quick as they were!
Silver, its only a short thread. In the beginners section. Started by someone called Ghostrider.
Sabbie, I think the hills help your training. Thats what I tell myself anyway when I'm struggling up the one by ours
lol have just posted on that thread
Yep same to you both enjoy your club runs, am looking forward to it even though the weather is naff
Enjoy your club runs Silver and Booey, am gonna go despite the nasty weather and achy legs!
Didn't go out tonight, have no idea where I went or how far yesterday, I will attempt to recreate it on a map but not convinced it'll be very accurate. Debating whether to keep going with the killer exercise class on Wednesdays or not, I really dread it all week but enjoy it when I go.
Had a lovely afternoon today and my Big Girl was truly delightful, Mr Mal was very helpful tonight too. All cheerful in our house.
How did you all get on with your running this evening?
