cheers Cake

yeah thats the plan, didnt do anything yesterday other than took the kids to the baths but just let the shins soothe in the water.

was thinking about going just for a walk today for a good old stretch really.

then tomorrow driving to edinburgh and spending the day at the zoo then a nice meal afterwards

Did the Edinburgh 10k yesterday, started of in the pink wave, and did it in 1hr 3mins 04secs really happy with that considering its a lot harder than the previous 10ks that I have ran before (only 2) 

 

body is aching today especially the upper back around the shoulders

 Well done mate Will you be taking it easy for a while or have you already got something else lined up?

15/07/2013 at 21:14

I've got the Middlesbrough 10k the start of September which I am doing for charity, my previous time was 58.08mins but I was only 88kg then and not 100kg lol that was 2yr ago, but I didn't train for it, and was wrecked for ages after at least I am running and got a good head start.

I've 3 weeks off work from the end of the week going to Spain for 2weeks then a week at home dont plan on doing anything other than walks etc then I have 4-5 wks before the Boro 10k.

an old pal is doing the Boro one also and said he will run with me, hes looking at late 40s so that will be good to push me on a bit
