Lurking no more!
VLM is Virgin London Marathon I think?
LSR - Long Steady Run? I used to think it was Long Sunday Run
Latest News - Tights are on their way
Fair enough about St Albans, not sure myself. Would probably have to stay over which makes it expensive. Went through St Albans once years ago and it looked really nice but there are hardly any hotels. Annoying really because the train service is great Monday to Saturday(and an off peak return is only £15!) but non existent on a Sunday morning and I'm not very keen on motorway driving
Stripes - yeah your explanations of my abbreviations are the same
two 7 milers in 3 days is very good so don't beat yourself up, although I know what you mean. You have this feeling of, I really want to go for a run but my body is saying be sensible have a short run today if you feel upto it then the w/end try for a longer one
I noticed when I had my hiccup whilst away in Newquay and didn't run for days that when I got back out and did the ressy run it was my best so far nearly 7 miles and I shaved nearly 10mins off my last time proof that sometimes a good rest (a few days) can do wonders for the body recovery and revitalise you
Silver - when I subscribed I phoned them as I wanted to actually hear someone say "yes you get a free running top" the top came a couple of weeks after the mag from what I remember. Give them a ring if you don't get it after a while
Its turned very foggy ere in Northampton, dunno what its like for you two?
LMAO haha thats made me chuckle (thats Laugh my arse off by the way) I am a text junkie, all I really use my phone for. I can text a msg like grease lightening and use loads of abbreviations.
When I am typing something on an email for work I really have to stop and think what I am doing or else I forget and abbreviate everything
Have a good weekend everyone, hoping to get away soon
Have a good weekend all.
Enjoy the football Silver, sure you and your Dad will appreciate seeing the best team in the world, shame about the opposition. If you can get your 7yo lad to understand he is privileged to be watching England getting stuffed then you may get a nomination for Dad of the year
I am okay at texting but not very quick since I got a touchscreen phone. I also like using whole words and haven't got a clue what most of the abbreviations mean!
That sounds like a good prep Booey, three lots of just under 10 miles, you'll be ready for anything after that
Back at work having done a steady four miles. Quite enjoyed it, took it very gently in the first mile as my legs are still a bit achy but once I warmed up I was fine.
Got a very quiet weekend, no football, no race and lots of time at work
House to myself tonight as well. I'm staying in and the other half is going out which only happens about once a year
Nice to speak to you in your own thread!
Sounds like your daughter has had an awful week.
Tights not come yet. Can't wait to get the Lycra on
I think my problem is that I struggle to slow down enough. All the experts on here and other websites seem to suggest that slower is better. My slow run is probably only 10-15% slower than my fastest and I am trying really hard to ease off more. Easier said than done though
Dog has gone, feeling sad but relieved the baby's face isn't as swollen, she resembled a pumpkin! Out for a run first thing tomorrow (in my new tights!) can't wait.
Nice to see everyone on here.
How could you all be busy spending time with your families etc instead of heaping sympathy my way? come on runners, you'll all have to be doubly sympathetic now. If you're not I'll be forced to punish you with 100's of photos, anecdotes and snippets related to the puppy.
Thanks Sabbie, you are now excused the punishment.
Can't wait for the run, I'm feeling restless without it. Hoping to attempt a 5k route to see how I go. Really want to have another go at parkrun to see if I can improve my time but not feeling on top form yet, I seem to have a bit of a stomach bug but could just be stress.
Hope the outlaws is good. Nice to have Mondays off too, what do you do?
Had a glass of wine and a chat with a lovely friend of mine so feeling happier.
Mal, sorry about the dog going, bet you were gutted, hope the run this morning went well and took your mind off it.
Sabbie, sounds like you were having a good night, hope the outlaws was okay.
Silver, glad they won for you, bet your Dad and Son were made up. I've taken lots of stick from mates and my girlfriend after confidently predicting England would get hammered, sure you would like to join in
Did my LSR? this afternoon and it went very well. Managed 8 miles in 1:11.08, took it very steady and kept an even slow pace. Legs were turning to jelly towards the end but was my furthest ever run so am really pleased. Tried my first ever Gel today about 4 miles in, not sure if it made much difference but it tasted better than I thought
Still no sign of the tights. Reckon the Fashion Police have impounded them
