Lurking no more!
Sorry Boo - I have been quiet today but I’m a wee bit busy getting things ready for this weeks meetings in the big smoke. I also had a student in this morning for an hour and had to extol the virtues of being an architect! I try to be honest in these situations but I’m always conscious I may come across a little negative, so I miss out the bad bits such as difficult builders and clients and all the red tape that comes with the job and just talk about the beautiful buildings we create!
Having read your excellent race reports I’m feeling a tad left out and at the same time I’m itching for a run but I’m going to save myself for the club tomorrow night. I’ll probably pay my subs and join up at the same time so there’s no turning back.
What did you think of the Manhattan thing – it has it all beach, sea, big buildings. I lived in the US for 3 years in the early nineties and loved the place so going back to pound the streets would be quite satisfying for me.
Wow am liking the look of that Manhattan race how good would that be. Am sure your wife will go along and support you in such a great place......of course if you struggled and had a spare ticket *cough cough* haha
Have a good evening
Booey, hope your jaw is okay now? Yeah, two HMs in four weeks, may be a bit ambitious since 10k is as far as I've gone.
Silver, that run looks amazing. Would love to go back to NYC, been there three times but I've developed a serious fear of flying over the last few years and don't imagine I'll be going back anytime soon.
Good idea Silver and I'll be able to rejoin next month!
I mentioned what I was doing last Sunday in a conversation with a customer last week and he said 'Oh I had the mid-life crisis and took up running for a while when I hit 40!' Cheeky Sod
Oh I bet you were gutted at missing the goal. I know its not the same but at various times over the years there have been occasions where myself or friends at the match have missed goals. One fella missed all three in a three-nil win once because he was buying tickets for another game and they were all scored in the first six minutes.
Ha Ha. Seems like everyone thinks we are losing our marbles!
Your son has the most tremendous taste I must say
I've been a Season Ticket Holder at Anfield for 17 years, started supporting them as a little kid.
That is why everyone was so stunned that I avoided alcohol on Saturday at one of the biggest games of the season especially when they knew it was because of running the next day. Mind you I did get plenty of good luck messages. My ultimate aim would be to run next years Liverpool Marathon but having read the reviews last week it seems it is an incredibly tough course. I know the one hill that had to be traversed after 16 miles and I'm not sure I could run up it from scratch!
I noticed Booey mention that she has a Garmin, do you have one? I really would like one because I am hopeless at judging my pace and like a lot of newcomers think I probably do need to learn to slow down at times.
Results are now online for my run yesterday. I was 121st of 272 in 51.00 which I am totally delighted with
but they spelt my name wrong
Ha Ha. Really weird, we could have been sat near to each other at some stage!
Think we will be in a battle for fourth with Spurs and maybe Arsenal to be honest as United, City and Chelsea all look very strong. Things are certainly improving though and are unrecognisable from this time last year with the ownership debacle over and Kenny in charge.
Hopefully the parliamentary debate on Hillsborough will make some difference with the official documents set to be released.
Yeah and Booey if and when you read this we promise to leave the football chat out from now on
I have used the imapmyrun app which has been useful but having read some reviews of the Garmin forerunners I like the idea of it beeping at you to tell you to either speed up or slow down, maybe its cheating but I'll take all the help I can.
I've found another race which I may enter. The Shepshed 7. It is 7 miles, two laps of a park in Leicestershire, about 35 mins drive from me and in 3 weeks time.
Just popping in to say I'm glad everyones enjoying the running...............it is good to have a few goals for spring to help you get through the winter training..............I forced myself out in the rain, wind and dark last night because I knew that someone on the threads would expect me to do the run...........once I was out I enjoyed most of it..................but hard to get yourself through tyhe doors sometimes......
Morning all *waves*
Hi Seren, welcome to our over 40 thread hehe
My jaw feels loads better today, must have been how I fell asleep
Not a huge football fan but am patriotic so will always cheer England on. I lost all respect a few years ago when their wages just got so silly and they started sleeping with whoever they felt like
I can watch most sports but my favourites are - any Motor Racing especially F1, Rugby (England), Tennis (huge Rafa fan), Athletics running of course, cycling always glued to the tour de france big Cav and Wiggo fan
I have a Garmin 305 its fantastic and does so much that I don't use they are very expensive but I got mine off ebay for £70 which is a bargain. It has a heart rate monitor which I still have not used I use it everytime I run to record distance, time, pace etc then I record every single run since I started on a website called fetcheveryone.com, its so good have a look.
The cold weather doesn't put me off running at all, I think I may enjoy it more than when it was very hot to be honest. I have bookmarked so many races I don't know if I have the time haha
Stripes - I think a month between 2 HM's will be no problem at all, even full mara's would prob be enough time.
Is it just me that I have no desire at the moment to even consider doing at full marathon even thinking 12 months ahead I just get no feeling of 'yes I need to do that' alot of people on here have said I prob wont and don't consider one until you have been seriously running 2 years
