for those looking at threads but dont want to intrude ........
Oh no Kwala - consider this a boot in the bum!
Me thinks you should go for a run tonight come what may - go as soon as you're home from work. Just go for a mile, or once round the block or whatever and see how you feel.
I missed my run on Monday, as I felt really crappy, but was feeling better last night so went and did 3.5 miles - still can't wait until after the midwinter solstice - roll on ligter and warmer evenings!
Come on Kwala you can do it! Just put a mojo on your Christmas list!
Just over 4.5 miles for me last night but when I'd finished pf was playing up. Not too happy about that but after a warm shower and a good night's rest it seems no worse this morning. Maybe it's just something I have to bear. Am ok so long as it doesn't stop me running!
I'm with you on the midwinter sostice FT can't wait until we start seeing the days getting longer. Wouldn't be any good living in those countries that don't have much daylight!
Kwala - well done on getting out the other night! Shame you couldn't make it out again, but so long as it's for a bona fida reason, as oppose to lack of mojo. Make sure you make time for your weekend run. And don't worry about distance or time - at this time of year it's a big achievement just to get out there and do something - and if you can drag yourself out for 2 miles now, just think about how easy (and enjoyable) it will be to go out for a run on a nice sunny, warm (but not too hot) spring day!
Trigger - apologies for being a bit ignorant on the PF front, but sounds like you may have found a way to manage with it.
Where's everyone else?!
Well done on getting yourself out there Kwala. Like FT says, it's an achievement just to get outside when it's cold and dark out there. Don't be too hard on yourself chicken
Sorry to hear you pf is still playing up trigger. Hopefully more hot baths and rest will keep it under control.
I'm being lazy this week and only running Tues & Fri with the club to give me plenty of rest before my HM at the weekend. Feels quite nice actually
Race Report LK?
I had a sudden spike in mojo this weekend. Finished work at lunch on Friday - it was a cold day, but with blue skies and sunshine and kind of crisp - ran my furthest this year, doing 4.67 miles and still did it at around 8:30 miles - felt great afterwards!
Then, went out again on Sunday morning - It was still really frosty, but not icy, if you know what I mean - did a very lazy and laid back 2.2 miles.
----- but 3 weeks ago doing that sort of distance would never be easy, it would still be hard work!
I guess it was good for me to do a couple of runs in daylight, and I feel like I've made a bit of a breakthrough too.
Wow, you all sound soooo good getting out and running...
I have signed up for the Leeds half marathan thinking that will spur me on and give me the motivation to get out there, need to lose weight, get fit etc but am finding it hard to go out with the dark cold nights. plus my dog was attacked a few weeks ago so have been looking after him as he has broken leg etc..
When i signed up i did go out a few times then the dog thing happened and have barely been out since. and the thing is, i really really want to do it, but cant seem to get my ass out of the door...
Plus i work 7 days a week so i do seem to be able to find plenty of excuses as you can tell...x
Good girl. Well done
Welcome Jinky and sorry to hear you're not doing so well at the mo. Stick with us and we'll try and get you inspired. Hope the pooch gets better soon too. Poor thing
Went to the club for a wee recovery run and ended up doing 6 miles, lol. Felt nice though. Wasn't too quick.
