Jude, sometimes life is just like that and you have to make the decision that is right for you and your family. You are making the right decision and you know you are. It would be crazy to go ahead and do it and then not make the cut off, or injure yourself trying to make the cutoff. Sounds like a great opportunity for your husband to go to Greece and get in touch with his roots, and a trip to Troy would be fantastic. I know I am exhausted at the moment, getting up at 5:30 on a Sunday to fit a long run is crazy, and I am skimping a bit on the work preparation and marking. Just fit the runs in when you can around life and enjoy it for the fun of it.
Thanks guys! Yep, it's the right decision. I feel a weight has been lifted off my shoulders and hubby is really excited about going to Salonika. He has just gone to his friend's house to talk about it. I also have a parents meeting at school that same weekend and although the school manager said I could reaarange my meetings it would have been difficult to organise and would mean finding time after school to see 65 lots of parents.
I'm getting excited about our little trip away already.
Im ba-ack from my 10k. Took it steady today as didnt want to get injury. It was a lovely day and lovely flat course. I managed it in 1h 40 ish seconds so really pleased.
Me and my friend Juan at the start. Hi lovely wife took the pic and sponsored us £5 for our Marathon. He was super fast and got a pb of under 50 mins.
Thanks Franny, I had a fab time and saw lots of people there that I knew. Some of the Fitness family were there for support. It was strange doing a race that I do my training runs on.
Well done Ecky! Looks like a nice day too!
well done Ecky - great photo too
well done Ecky, thats a great piccy!! you look chuffed glad you had a lovely day
jude, hope you are feeling ok after your decision not to run but i understand that, and its right decison if you dont feel prepared for it. there are plenty other marathons to do and another season of running to aim for
MC, well done on your run too-how are you feeling after it?
well, Rocker and i had a good day marshalling at the Duathalon, pretty chilly start but then lovely autumn sun in a lovely area. quite surpirisingly low number of people in the Duathalon..but the event went well after some confusion over the runners crossing with the bikers at a certain area on the course ....no casualties though and we got a ride in the Ambuvan
loula - well done for marshalling
I feel ok after my run, although my left knee is a little niggly, but that one has been a little since I hurt it in the summer on a steep descent in Switzerland. It'll be ok.
swimming later - hope we aren't working on kicking again
Thanks guys, I really did enjoy it and it was such a lovely day although very very cold.
Loula well done for marshalling. I hope you got lots of Thanks. I made sure I thanked every one. Had some very nice policemen helping out too.
Mathschick,well done on your run,hope you knee is okay.
rocker - hope your achillies is feeling a bit better today
If Felix would have jumped from just 2 miles higher up, we could call him the Marathon Jumper! Still very impressive though, don't you think? Maybe next time he'll use a bungy cord!
