feeling sick now!
No running for me today but my number for Longleat 10k arrived
Toby the lady at your b&b sounds lovely equally when I stay in Bristol they are a friendly bunch and nothing is too much trouble ....
found one of those spiky things your all talking about it looks like a lethal weapon...it must of come off while the owner was braving the arctic conditions and someone has put it onto the nearest fire hydrant for finding...
Bit nippy here today and has just started snowing again!Yaktrax arrived yesterday but dont think there will be enough snow to try them out.Really easy to pull onto my shoes and youngest said they look cool so must be goodDont know why I wasnt prepared before the snow came
Long run today,10 miles as on call tonight and working Sunday pm.Was a bit stop/start as still icy patches but done in 1 hr 54mins so thats fine.Plan said to run for 70 mins so did a bit more but felt ok
Looks like I might do Swindon HM in Oct and might do Cricklade 10k(didnt know there was a 10k on same day as HM)the Sunday before.The Sept HMs come a bit too early after the summer for me,not good in warm weather and away on hols in Aug so training will suffer,plus when I did Chippenham HM it was a mini-heatwaveremember B+T
Quick post as have to get an early tea tonight
well 20 very cold and depressing miles for me today it was getting dark by the time i got home and have to say never been so glad to get home in the warm
what a difference a day makes went out with the O/H today as she had 13 miles to do and didn't want to do them on her own the sun was out and it was warm but it wasn't to last as i see the rain they promised had arrived
Well done on everyone getting out and doing long runs yesterday. I only did a quick paced 3 miler yesterday and have my LSR planned for today aiming for 12 miles. I have route planned out - I have convinced hubby to drive me into another town so I have to run home, a lot of the run will be along a disused railway track so may be a bit of a mud fest but hey who cares!
Just hoping that the rain stops or at leasts stops bucketing down as per weather forecast before I get out there as the drowned rat look isn't my best!
B&T not as hard as it sounds as the wife uses a run / walk and then there's usually loo breaks so there are rest breaks while i'm waiting for her to come out so that means with the run walk i end up walking half of it
Congrats on the long runs everyone and training through the snow, marathon training seems to be going well for you all, putting me to shame.
Sal - I'm with you on regaining fitness.
1st run today since 10th December a very hard 5K heartbeat sky high and pace well slow....... but a start. How unfit have I become.
Must right myself a training plan and target some parkruns, Unsure of Abingdon & Oxford.
12.33 miles for me this morning in the sunshine but wind was a bit of a killer. Average pace was 9 min 12 sec miles so hopefully on target for 1hr 50 min HM at Brighton which is my ideal time.
Speediersal well done on your run this morning, lets hope the snow stays away until next winter now.
Toby do you or your legs ever feel tired, as i know that now I have done my run this morning I will feel pretty shattered for the rest of the day. i think that i may need to redress my diet with regards to fuelling properly before and after runs
i do have to say i do have a nap afterwards the trouble is the nap seems to be in proportion to the run the longer the run the longer the nap
Toby that makes me feel so much better
just 5 miles yesterday as i over slept and by the time i had gone to my Weight Watchers meeting that was all i had time for went under my target weight yesterday am now 10st 11lbs a loss of 2st 9lbs so after 2 years of saying i must get down to 11st for Brighton this year i will be
