for those looking at threads but dont want to intrude ........
Trigger if you had the PS3 less than a year the warranty should still be valid ....hope that helps.
Not been on RW forums much last 7 days to embaressed as i have not run even 1 mile...
soo i,m going on a run tonight... gonna run till i bloody well start enjoying it again,put on 5 pounds....
see every 1 here is having same problems with wind rain hail snow the lot ...dark nights
laters at work ..
Thanks penguin but it's older than that so no luck there. At the mo he's looking at tutorials on you tube and thinks that my OH might be able to help him fix it. If he can get it working again then maybe we can renew the insurance. If it looks too complicated then we'll probably have to take it back to GAME and see if they've got a repair service. And then there's Christmas.............................. BAH!
Am happy that my pf seems to be no worse than it was and certainly not as painful as after Stevenage HM so hopefully if I take it easy might be able to work through it? Fingers crossed. Will probably give the treadie a try tonight and then rest until Saturday.
Anyone going to the London Running Show this weekend?
Hope you're on the mend trigger - being sensible to take it bit by bit!
I'd be absolutely rubbish if my wife was a baker - bad enough married to a teacher - though she does make some lovely food!
Didn't get into the super six, but it's been a real cool experience and now have a RW subscription, free Lucozade stuff a half marathon entry and best of all lots of new people (to me) to chat to!!!
Not going to the running show - you going trigger?
3 mile run tonight - up and down streets of bargoed - pleased to have averaged 6 min kms on a hillier route than I normally do! Hope I can keep that up for 10kms in the Cotswolds on Sunday.
See you tomorrow I guess since bed soon!
Hiya trigger ... did race at the Cotswolds ... the hills were great going down but harder going up! Nothing mad - well the steepest one did go on for about a kilometre, and there were two others not quite as steep that lasted for half a km and 1.3 respectively. So while the first half of the race was probably the fastest I've run at a 10k, the second half was more of a slog! Missed my pb by 28 seconds ... (completed in 60.34) - would have liked to break the hour mark for the first time, but it wasnt to be this time.
How did you enjoy the running show? What did you get out of it (info, advice and/or freebies!)
Hi BB well done on your run,thats a realy good time.
I had a couple of good runs last week but went out today and realy struggled,I think my legs were just too cold,I realy need to warm them up properly. Boxercise tonight and been good with food,I realy want to do a good time in the Kilomathon.
Hi to everyone else hope you are all ok.
Hi BB. TBH Running Show was bit of a loss. Didn't pick up any freebies and the "theatres" were in two corners of the floor. It was in the basement of Olympia 2 so the venue didn't lend much either. Not somewhere I'd bother going again. Will wait for VLM Expo and bunk in there - much more going on!
Well done on the race - 28 seconds is nothing really!
Hope everyone is well.
Hi all, sorry I've not been around for a while. Talking mojo left me a bit, but the running mojo hasn't
Did a 15.7 mile cross country race a few weeks ago called the Seagrave Challenge. It was the furthest that I've ever run and my 1st proper XC, but I loved it. Ran as part of a group from the club and it was a run/walk event, so there were rest stops WITH CAKES Our "cake stoppage" time worked out to be 29 minutes, hehehe. Had a lot of fun and got very muddy. First 10 miles was fab, last 5.7 was horrendous because the wind picked up and the rain felt like hail on your face. Urgh! Still, it was a fantastic day.
Next race is the Turkey Trot HM in a few weeks, so I went out yesterday to do 11 miles in preparation. Felt pretty crappy before I set off, but that's not uncommon. It usually fades after a mile or so and I feel great. Not yesterday!! I had no energy, my breathing was crap and I hated every second. I lost count of the amount of times I wanted to give up and go home. It was just awful. At about 8 miles I thought I was going to be sick, but the thought that I only had 1 more hill to go carried me on and I managed to complete the circuit.
Got home, had a drink, took delivery of our Christmas tree from my parents and then went to have a shower and got in bed. Rolled into a ball because I had really bad stomach cramps and then about 10 mins later I rushed to the loo to be sick. Urgh!! Headache and stomach cramps all day and couldn't even keep water down until last night. Had the day off today and was still feeling pretty rubbish, but managed some dry toast. Feeling much better now and have managed to eat tea so hopefully I'm all fixed. Bleurgh. Not something I want to happen again in a hurry!!
Anyway, will do another 10-11 miles at the weekend and then it's the Turkey Trot the weekend after that. More pressure this time because I have a PB to beat now Erk!!
Sorry you been poorly LK,glad your feeling better now,your running sounds amazing,I like the idea of a cake stop.lol Turkey trot sounds good too.
Boxercise tonight was brill,they have just installed disco lights so its just like boxing in a nightclub.
Quiet in here again.
BB - hard luck with the super six - dp you think you'll enter a marathon anyway?
LK - glad you enjoyed your XC, and good luck for the Turkey Trot. Hope you're feeling better now.
ET - have you done anymore runs since your cold legs? I know some people proudly harp on about the fact that at this time of year they still only wear shorts and tshirt, as once they are out running they soon warm up, but personally I prefer to toddle along at a slower pace wrapped up in leggings, hat, gloves jacket etc...
I don't really have much to report on except I've been out for 2-3 more runs since last post. I originally said I wasn't going to puch my distance any more until the new year, but have done a couple of longer runs just because I felt good on the day (a longer run for me is still only 3.5 miles at the moment)
According to Nike+ I ran my fastest mile this year the other day, in just under 8 minutes. I've also completed just over 200 miles for the year, which is still a bit piddly, but up until June I'd probably only done about 30 of those. Running bug is definitely re-captured at the mo though - still managing to enjoy it, and I know I'll start enjoying it even more when the days start to get longer and theweather warmer in Spring.
Mornin FT 3.5 miles is still good. I cant imagine ever getting warm in shorts and t shirt.lol I must be cold blooded.I think its cos I w8 for the kids to go into school before I set off so Im stood around for a bit freezing up,I did invest in some long tights and long sleeved top which I am going to try out this morning,I have my hat too just need some gloves now.
Hi everyone tis very quiet,maybe Santa will bring some more mojos.
Hi Trigger yeh tis very quiet on here,maybe its cos its nearly Crimbo.Well done on your training,Im having a rest this week as ankly been playing up,spoke to a Physio at club and she thinks I may have wrong trainers,I realy do need to go to proper running shop after Crimbo and get it done properly,I thought I was saving money self diagnosing but I should have known better.
