LOL Allie ... I can't get past 2min run/walk ... I will not contemplate another race till I do ... this is my burden for not being 'good' and resting properly etc.

Misty - Well done on your run, as Allie + LE says best to take it slowly on distance work, the speed comes after once you're happy + comfortable at the distance. Even more so in this heat.

Allie - good run, in this heat also. Nice to see the last person getting apllauded.
Hope you have a good time with the running club + enjoy it.

Plod- No worries about the gym sess, you'll get there, just persevere. Just get yourself another run.

OTH - Don't be too hard on yourself, you had a pretty hectic time of late with work. You'll get back on the routine soon.

EM - can't beleive you missed the changeover !!!

Welcome to all the new folk, happy running !

Morning...it's me!!!

Got up early to catch up a bit before work.

Hello nice new people...hope to catch up more really soon, lovely to meet you. :-)

LE...fantastic run...congratulations!
Lovely to see Misty, I missed you!
OK...also discovered Plod is a tree hugging hippy...LOL friend! (Me too!!) :-)

Allie...we're heading to your home town for the GNR too! Mart is running...I'm shopping! Fancy a training run on the Saturday or Monday? I'll be bringing my gear, but if I'm alone it will be the hotel gym. Would love to see you either for a few miles and smiles or a coffee and a chatathon?

I predict a riot is on...and it's a bit early to be feeling so zingy, but I just had an enforced couple of (?) day's break from running and I gotta wait 'til late tonight before I can go...I'm away to see if i can harness some of this energy and apply it to my work...? Whadda ya reckon???

OK...I didn't leave for work yet...been reading back a bit more carefully whilst eating my brekkie.

Yvonne, good luck at the drs tomorrow...hope you get some useful advice, but if you want a more running oriented spin on your problem maybe you could see a Physio? They might be better placed to not only get you pain free, but advise on what is causing the problem so that it does not reccurr.
We are lucky in that our gp. is a runner though. :-)

Morning all! Guess what...I got up at 5.15 this am and ran 3.5 miles!!!! Actually, a tiny bit more!!!!

And I could do it.

And it felt good.

I'm so chuffed I can hardly tell you all (3.5 is longest distance I've ever run non-stop!!)

Allie- great run last night. I've stopped running during the day and even in the evenings because of the heat so kudos to you my friend! And I'm sure that your kind words of encouragement would have penetrated Christine's (?) gloom. I know how bad she must have felt. Thats how my RFL was. But there is simply no accounting for the heat!

I'm on site for most of today so wanted to check in early.

OTH- you've been so well organised orchestrating all of this. Thank you!

Happy running everybody

Woohoo I'm back in the saddle! Now I've just got to get back to where I left off!

Oh yeah, OTH, would like to add to your race list (will be my first!).

I am doing the Women's Hydroactive Challenge in Hyde Park 3rd september.

Cheers

Jules

Well done Jules! Its a good feeling to get back on the road!
18/07/2006 at 08:39
That's great news Jules! You got a rest day scheduled for today now?

How far is your run in September?
18/07/2006 at 08:39
ooh. hello UK!
18/07/2006 at 08:43
Go Jules! How far is the run? Well done on your run last night - did you feel inspired by the forum?

Great going UKY - I don't know how you manage to get up so early, but I suppose it's the best tome of day. Well done!

Em - I would love to meet you for a run that weekend and we could go to the GNR finish and cheer on all our running friends together too. Looking forward to it already.

Great Al!!!

Is Ada running it?

Can you think of a suitable (easy to find) meeting place for a run, and mail me?

We are arriving on the Friday or the Saturday, then leaving on the Monday.

It's 12 min miles though bud, OK? Slower with gossip!!!

I've just checked the results on Heaton Harriers website. I came 150 out of 171 and my time was 34.55. 5.4k is a strange distance so I'm not sure how this compares to my other runs.

Looks like Christine wasn't last after all.

171 was a poor turn out. There were supposed to be 500 runners. Maybe the weather put them off. At least Christine and I made the effort eh!

morning all, hello to all newcomers, good running allien and OTH and HFJ.

Did a 1 hour spin session and another hour in the gym yesterday, was so hot and the air con was broke, like a greenhouse in there. really enjoying the spin, its hard but at the end it feels so good.

This morning i started on the run 15mins walk 1 run 15. I managed to get round 5k in 31.05 so another minute and twenty seconds off the pb, ive taken off nearly 5 minutes in two weeks, at this rate ill be going sub 20 for the aquathon!lol. I found the last 5 minutes really hard and did stop twice for 5sec walks, i dont know why but sometimes my legs just stop!. anyway good luck to anyone running in the heat today!.

Kwilter, if your around i think i might join you for the plymouth half!
18/07/2006 at 08:54
Em, yes Ada's running, Mart, Dingus and Morgs too, Christine from last night, and a guy from work... and about another 50,000.

12 min miles is good for me. I'll find a nice route and let you know. Where will you be staying?
18/07/2006 at 08:54
In my eye you were 150/500 Al. If your buddy was last of the 171, then she was 171/500!!!

Then there are the millions who didn't enter if you want your rating boosted even higher!!! Well done to both of you, and the other 169 runners who did it.
18/07/2006 at 08:55
We are staying in the Novotel near the airport. Should be a good weekend.
18/07/2006 at 08:56
Daniel- I know what you're saying about your legs just stopping. This happens to me too, many times on hills. Although i'd like to think that its a physical response, I actually think its mostly mental. I have found a new running friend that I call Running Head. I talk to my Running Head and say things like 'go on Running Head, don't let that nasty Lazy Head take over' 'Well done Running Head, we'll take it easy at the top of the hill'. It feels ridiculous, but its working for me! Keep up the good work, you are truly an inspiration!
18/07/2006 at 08:57
Hi FOAD, great going. Another PB - you've records smashing all over the place. Well done.

Good gym session too - there's no way I could have managed that. I ASPIRE to get to your fitness levels and your 5k times.
