Your weekday 'magazine' programme from Worcsetershire
My x-country went ok but a lack of marshalls/signs meant a large section of the field (me including) ran around an extra field adding over half a mile. At least I got more for my money that way.
Crashie - Yes, it's there best top flight start to the season since 1919!!
Lexi - Well done on your selection.
3299........getting there.......slowly .
Ah the power of the marshal's presence or in your case Ant not present.
My Marshal season is over, I have been invited to end of season party , unforunately I will be Zooming out to Shamrock Land for the International...am .now in real panic mode......
.Achilles still causing a problem. If I take more anti inflammatory tablets, my stomach issue becomes a serious problem....However have decided I will deal with that after the race. The Joys of keeping fit eh???
Lexi - Good luck
Snowdon for me this weekend on a pair of dodgy achilles too. Fortunately so far once I've done about a mile they warm up and have been ok.
Good luck to the pair of you
I am still fat. I managed a 6 mile run today, broken up as I changed a flat tyre for an elderly lady. Yay me with my selflassness and altruism; it was nothing to do with needing a breather, honest
3294 or a total inability to spell...
3293 - The forecast is threatening to be dry, this just isn't on.
Ant same here, only it takes 5 mile warm up for me...perhaps a few loops of Stormont before the race might sort it.... Best Wishes for a good run and hey brill weather, cold, dry and sunny...can you save it for me as well please.
Mr Hamster sire, what a wonderful gallant display of true.....erm true gentlemanly behaviour to save a damsal in distress and a set of lungs proabaly also in distress,. . Dont worry about the spelling, put it down to double vision after all your hard work.
Evening HL...thank you for comiserations regarding Achilles..I suspect its doing this because I always run well 'under pressure'...*under pressure* and *in pain* are two different things...someone please tell my Achilles.
Snowdon went ok. My achilles were sore to begin with so took it easier than I would normally have done. There were 35 of us in a lodge in Tremadog and apart from getting limited sleep it was a good weekend away. Oh and we had blue skys all day.
And now for the Slog.
Well done on enjoying Snowdon Ant. take it easy with your Achilles. Unfortunately I have had to inform my Team Captain I cannot run...yes its that bad.
My GP was trying to fast track me to see the Consultant for an injection, he agreed, but bookings said I would ahve to go through Out-Patients first to see him...in 2 weeks time....NO...my Race is in just over 2 days time. Will be 12 days too late..... But at least I will see him 6 months sooner. Than I would have.!!! Devestated would be an understatement.
Meanwhile I ahve been Aqua Jogging...the scenery isnt very nice or interesting, deep end of a swimming pool just isnt the same as running through the countryside, but at least its warmer. Then after an hour Aqua, I go for the hour of messing my spine up by swimming...Yeeeouch!
So tired today; big mistake last night....I have a summer duvet 4.5 Tog, I have a Spring duvet (normal use) 7.5 tog. As it was cold.....last week. Yesterday I put the 2 together to form a winter duvet tog....nice and toastie...SOoo Toastie...I couldn't get off to sleep . Heyho, at least I know if it gets really cold again I will be warm.. My bedroom is the one place that becomes mega cold in the winter. I have concrete rafters, must be the only property in GB to have them, however it means I have a freezer in my loft space during the winter...brrrrrrrr!!!
Slog for me on Sunday, though Squish is out as her knee's bad. Won't be hanging around for a nice warm shower and a pizza, though. I love that race!
Lexers, sorry to hear you couldn't run your inernational; that's rubbish. Hopefully they can get it sorted out soon.
I am dieting and training; managed to lap my 9 mile loop in 8 min miling yesterday. Base training has obviously had some benefits! A bit more of the same then lose a stone in weight by 1st September and I should be in decent IM shape. May even have a crack at a marafun in the spring...
Best Wishes to Squish Crashie.
Oooh IM next year....which one? Am Marshalling Manchester Marafun next year in April...again. Hopefully the weather will be kinder to competitors and marshals this time.
HL....You are always working hard, both at home and work. I hope your school appreciates what you do.
talking of college, I am looking at an OU Course...just looking mind.... Just looking.
Am still going to Belfast, my 2 friends are coming with me. I felt terrible letting them down, but its turned out better, as they had always wanted to see the Giant Causeway and the Titanic Museum, so we are sightseeing. Am going to get my monies worth....standing on a wet field watching others race and feel totally demoralised won't do me any good, as much as I wanted to support, I would end up crying for the rest of the weekend. So will have spent money i cant afford to sob....can do that (have done that) in the comfort of my own home/quiet gym/car/surgery.....yes a tad upset about it all.!
Not sure I could spectate if I was unable to compete (Gizzy did a good job of it at the Severn Ultra, mined ewe)
