anyone interested in a regular northeastern gathering?
it's a secret society
Blimey, I've spent 30 years in IT (or EDP as it was called back then) and it just gets more complicated, not easier.
DD- well done on the run, that must be building up your confidence no end.
8 Aug 1977, I joined ICL as a graduate trainee. Another great british company that no longer exists.
well, obviously my mental age is rather less than my physical age
Glad to hear you are all going well, TS excepted
Come on TS, you know you can be patient. I know from my experience how hard it can be, especially when you seem to keep getting so far & then getting knocked back again.
Pleased you all had a good time at Darlo, shame I couldn't have been with you. Glad you got some banana cake this time Ian
Welcome to Ian Runner, it's going to be very confusing having 2 Ian R's
My recovery is still continuing patiently (TS), have got upto just under 6 mile. Still hopefully doing my 1st 5K next week.
will seriously consider it DD-the course at scarborough is actually quite off road and if its been raining not a good one to do as i lack proper feedback at times....also aiming for 8miles something by mid october is probably more realistic than aiming for 10miles.....as for scarborough i am actually considering the fun run as an option a gentle 2.5mile something or being a marshall on course.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.......decisions......but blackpool does appeal....and im owed a day so can have a long weekend with a saturday off.....are you really sure you wouldnt mind me heading to blackpool to be gently paced with great company to a new pb
DD- glad to see that you are on the mend.
I'm off running at present, it seems that i have a problem with the tendons in my left leg and physio has given me a stern "NO" to running for a bit. As I managed about 100yards on Friday, I'm hardly likely to disobey her
you'd better rest as long as you need to.
Look after yourself
second physio visit yesterday, leg still feeling bruised from Saturday's visit. Much less painful this time and was allowed out for a couple of miles, with only minor discomfort, so I'll try a little further tonight and see how it goes.
I know 15km is nearly 10miles but it isnt quite 10miles! (FEMALE LOGIC)
so if I look for a b&b for Saturday night but arrange to meet and do something...perhaps pasta with your friends too? (doesnt want to be stuck in blackpool on her own)....roughly where in blackpool do you friends live so I can hunt for a location nearby.....I have managed to book the Saturday off so I can travel in the mroning and relax in the afternoon....I haven't seen the illuminations since I was a kid so should be fun.
I did 8.5km run on treadmill yesterday in 65mins...I am definately not as quick on treadie but getting there...over the next few weeks I can notch it up a few km but the problem is that the treadmill time limit is 65mins so its stopping and then starting over so to speak..unless I can set the treadmill for the distance I want to cover.........mmmm play time I think......
off to Hull tomorrow tih marion to visit 'The Deep'....this afternoon was spent in the cinema watching harry potter and the order of the pheonix I am part way trhough the half blood prince book and not anywhere near the last one just yet so dont tell me!
dd if you could email at some point it would be good...will send my entry off asap...worse case is i run 7.5km walk half km then run the rest......
latest crock alert - leg was improving through last week, and started running gently. Broke down on the Town Moor and had to limp and hop home
Back to physio again this monring. Not running for the rest of the week to try and sort it.
Hope everyone else is faring better
Hello quiet Northern peeps. What are you all up to ?
I've had 2 weeks off with bad hamstring, but been out for the last three nights, as allowed by the physio, so I am cautiously optimistic.
I can echo your progress - apart from running for the last three days
Highlight has been some days down in Bournemouth seeing my young nephews who live nearby, teaching them board surfing and knackering my knees even further running with them on soft sand - worth it though.
just run the 10k on the treadie in 65 minutes - sorted!!
good progress from you - I will be back!!
Thought I better get this thread going again
I have now officially joined a new club down here on the Wirral, Wallasey Athletic Club.
Did my 5K last month in a steady 21:19 & no ill effects. Have also done a couple of multi-terrain events & have extended my long runs upto 7.3 miles. Fingers crossed, the injuries are behind me again.
Hope everybody is well & training is going to plan
