a friendly thread open to all
Hi Everyone, lovely to hear all the news.
Lainey - well done on your half! Great going.
Louise - no running and no cake! Aagghhh
Spartak - so lovely to hear you are getting on so well. Hope your half goes really well. Since the Kielder marathon I have done another 4 marathons and one 30 miler last October. But I wasn't well over the winter and had an operation a few weeks ago. So I feel like I am now starting from the beginning again. All the best for your race this weekend.
Jude - great 5k time! And all the best for your swimming competition.
MC and Franny, you are so regular with your training, wish I was as disciplined.
AF - so how did your 18 miler go?
I attempted another 5k this morning. Sunshine was soooo lovely.
Chilli Pleased to hear you are on the mend and got out for a 5k run yesterday. Small steps and you will soon be back stronger than ever.
Managed 8.8 mile this morning
Spartak The very best of luck for Sunday at the Inverness Half. Hope the weather is kind to you Am so jealous of you doing the Highland Fling Relay. My running club tried to enter 2 relay teams but we didn't get in It is a very popular event now.
Have a good day everyone
Oh and one of my events this year has been cancelled The Edinburgh Rock and Roll Half...so gutted as I loved this race the past twice I have done it. Feel sorry for the people who have paid for flights and accommodation as even though we get a refund on the race I am sure folk will be out of pocket for flights and accommodation booked.
They had better not cancel the Lisbon one in October or I will be really really angry
Oh Franny, that is not nice! I would be very upset about the cancelled race. I remember how much you enjoyed it. Why have they cancelled it? (Cos I'm nosy and like to know!)
Have some caraway seed cake if anyone wants to join me for lunch.
oh Franny, sorry to hear that.
Lovely run with a friend this morning. Great weather and a nice coffee afterwards.
Just wondering, does anyone have a cold/ice bath post long run? Haven't tried it, but think it may help, just slightly nervous.
Chilli..........Rock and Roll say its because of lack of local support and from the council probably means not enough entrants and that maybe Edinburgh Council were asking for more money for road closures etc than they were prepared to pay. They should never had advertised the event if they hadn't had it all secured. Its the folk that who were coming to visit here and run the race that I feel sorry for. At least I will get my money back but will make me really think before entering any other R&R events.. Money grabbing torags. On the up side though it means we can go our Chico holiday a day early Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy. We are going to go to a wee cottage up in the North of Scotland Not far from Wick in a place called Keiss.Its near the beach and harbour and has lots of lovely cliff walks. Of course I will take my running stuff too
Lainey well done on your run today with your friend. Nice to have company.Not tried the ice bath thingy as it would be toooooooooooooo cold for me.
Chilli....your cake sounds delish I have made a chocolate cake
Gosh very busy over the last day or so.
Spartak-Hope the 1/2 goes well and let us know how you do.
Franny-Why has the Edinburgh 1/2 been cancelled? The New Forest Marathon that I so enjoyed last year has been cancelled. Think due to the costs of road closures etc. I hope it isn't the way things are going?
Chilli-Good to here that you are recovering well. Take it easy young lady.
Lainey- I tried the cold/ice bath thing once-- never again!!!! Well done on your run.
Jude-Well done on your time and all the best for the swim.
Louise-Good to here from you.Hope you recover soon.
18.1 miles in 2.44 this morning lovely run in the sun with a couple of ladies from my club. Will see if I can do 6-8 tomorrow as well.
AF Wow well done on your 18.1 miles and very speedy too. Think we must have crossed posts LOL See my explanation above BOSS looks like the same reason as the New Forest. Its not the Edinburgh Half in May AF but the Rock and Roll which was scheduled for June this year.
AF - well done on your speedy long run
franny - what a shame about your race, I had heard that it had been cancelled - on another thread I think.
Lainey - I have no intention of trying the ice bath thing!
well, seem to have come down with sore throat/headache so no running and no swimming for me today. Won't do anything tomorrow either (apart from work). What a pain, I have Retford Half mara on Sunday so just hoping it is short-lived
Spartak - Good luck for the Inverness Half!
Franny - What a shame about the Rock and Roll Half. I remember how much you enjoyed it last year.
Chili - Any cake left - sounds nice. Well done on your 5K.
Lainey - Glad you enjoyed your run in the sunshine. Never tried an ice bath but heard it's beneficial.
AF - well done on your fast 18 miler.
MC - how are you today?
I went swimming yesterday and the trainer took our times for the three races: 25m Freestyle, 50 m Freestyle and 25m backstroke. There are 3 swimming pools in the area and it is the overall winner of all three pools who wins the 6 month free swimming prize. Well I felt really pleased that I was the winner for all three races at my pool. Anyway, when I got home this evening I had a phonecall from one of the other pools and it seems my times for all three races are the winning times across all three pools. There is a ceremony tomorrow but I may not be able to go as it is during school time and I might not be able to get my lessons swapped. But I won!! Yippee. Best news is that it is free swimming for all the family for 6 months!!
I'm very pleased especially as I don't think I have ever won a race in my life....
MC - Oh no! Hope you feel better in time to run. What a nuisance!
wow, Jude, well done!!
WHOOO HOOO! Yippee! Congratulations Jude. That is amazing news Sounds like you could be a medal winning swimmer along with your children.
Fabulous news Jude, well done!
Hey Jude that is great.
WOOP WOOP WELL DONE OUR JUDE that is fantastic..........now we know where the kids get there talent from I seem to remember you were on the podium for a running race 2 years ago too What a fantastic prize for all the family...Great stuff.
MC I really hope you feel better for your race on Sunday...just rest up and hopefully you will be fine.
Well I am contemplating a wee run in the hills with Chico but weather not too great so swithering whether to go or not
Well we went for our run in the hills and had sunshine,hail and very very strong winds which at some points we were barely moving. We did 8.7 miles but walked up the very steep muddy hills. Tired doggy and tired Franny but we are HAPPYEEEEEEEEEEE
sounds like fun for you and chico franny
not getting any worse, well my throat felt awful this morning but tonight not too bad
I'll see what my resting hr is in the morning - even if it is ok probably best to do nothing tomorrow and then see how I am on Sunday
