Evening team .. I am home and I am in my pj's and its not even dark OR bedtime yet
Snaily: Nice going little n often will get you where you wanna bee
Spence: If I remember right, it was around the devonport area, its actually my step dad, so early years are sketchy for me. We spent almost every year in cornwall, mainly based around Polzeath, then later Newton Ferras, then travelling around, visiting places and relatives. This all started over 40 years ago, so its changed alot since then. I have been back on my bike a few times, with a mixture of dissapointment on how much its changed since my childhood, and happiness at being back in that general area. Dads brother was still in devonport until 8 ish years ago.
Still not in a position to think more about November, still love the idea, but cant commit for reasons. Would do the half tho, and from the looks, they wont run out of places for some time. Would also do the evening social
Dawneeeeieee: Agree with Dragon about stretching, just make sure you only stretch on warm muscles, not from cold, so stretch after the run would be better, stretching cold can do more damage! also, go easy, very light stretching helps, trying to wrench another foot out of each muscle doesnt help and will hurt
A nice foam roller helps elongate your muscle, think of rolling pastry, bit like a self massage.
have a look at http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/staying-healthy/the-rw-complete-guide-to-stretching/484.html , I now only really do 1, 4,5,7 & 8 after my runs, and an active warmup before them.
OMG I am waffling again! I need to stop hitting keys and making loads of words come out, might be more readable that way
Rollers: I use this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/Trigger-Point-Performance-Revolutionary-Roller/dp/B0040EGNIU/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1361469717&sr=8-3 which is amaizing, with all the little ridges etc but these http://www.amazon.co.uk/66Fit-Elite-Foam-Roller--Blue/dp/B002IKO2YU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1361469717&sr=8-1 will do an good job too and are a lot cheaper! I got mine for Xmas
Im a bit late but tonight we're having pancakes!!!
I'm going to bed in a mo - its effing cold here !!!
same here! all the cats are in, and we're wraped up! just had a real thich chocolate drink to keep warm
The forcast for tommorow here is -1 with wind chill -8 think I may need to wrap up a bit ....
We've spent the day in sunny North Wales at Bodnant Gardens. It is 10 years or so since we last went and I'm really glad we went again. Not only was it sunny and reasonably not-cold ... they have recently opened a winter garden, so it was good to see the winter colour and interest (bark, leaves etc). I'd forgotten what a nice place it is - you see pictures of the formal garden but there are woodland walks down to a stream.
I had a run when I got home - bitter in the wind ... !
walked to the shop, its bliddy freezing, my ears are in pain from the cold wind. brrrrr
Yums could have something to do with half term - stressed out mum!!
Chuggy is probably travelling between 2 countries again!
Very unlike them though
Think its time for bed.
Good moaning all I had a very early night last night but didnt have the best of sleeps, nothing that a few coffees wont put rightA few hours at the crime face and then a spell in the gym on the way I home I think
You love it 9 months of Spence nagging you !!!!
ONLY 9 MONTHS OMG I WILL NEVER BE READY IN TIME!!!
Lime pie, steamed catfish, butter beer what bloody country are you in Tubs
Hurray for a good Ofsted
I learnt a valuable lesson yesterday, eating loads of foods makes you sleep really bad It was a treat for me, but I'm still suffering this morning. Sorry for the gurgling noises.
Friday, not much to do (well actually loads but nothing interesting) so going to try and plough through it and skive off early
