Anyone up for it?
Soz missd your post Haile....where is that? It's mine & Mr BB's wedding anniversary on the 5th & we often go out around that time if we can get babysitters
Decided to go down to the kestrels numbers a bit down from last time I went but may be due to summer hols and the weather. I was struggling to find someone who was same pace of me so hung about to the end and left the sports centre with the last 3 runners who whilst faster than me were not the fastest runers at the club. Managed to keep with them for first 3 miles going through 5k nearly 2 mins quicker than the last parkrun. Started to feel the heat and pace not long after that and couldn't keep the pace of the other 3 and slowed a little but still a pleasing run
Hi Betty, The Castle, Bolsterstone is mid way between deepcar and hathersage.....well, maybe a bit nearer to deepcar....just google it, it would be great to see you and mr BB

Nice run home from work after nights just over 7 miles in 62 mins, ready for bed now.

Ya man, their FAAS
off camping in buxton , have a great weekend all not done anything since the HH been on nights this week and didnt feel like going out to play in the sun must have been mad
Haile - we'll try to get there for your birfday, what time etc
that's great Didds- would be good to see you. The Castle at Bolserstone about 8 on Saturday 4th
Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Any race reports to come?
Good weeks training last week 41 miles ran inc a faster run at the club and a 10 mile long run on sunday. Same sort of plan for this week.
Not from me - not done any.
Focus is on losing weight at the moment cos I is a fat so my running will be mediocre while I sort my eating habits out.
Blimey, where is everyone?
Apparently this has been Yorkshire's best ever Olympics already and that without our Jess and the Brownlee's achieving anything yet, awesome.
Yeah, top night last night. thanks for coming
Hope eveyone's Ok, its a bit quiet on here at the moment but I guess everyone is busy with holidays, watching olympics etc. I'm off from Friday for 2 weeks so I'll probably be a bit quiter, we have a few days camping planned for next week near Pickering, a day trip to London an then see what we feel like doing the second week - though we have a wedding to go to on 25 August.
Really cut back on my food intake 10 days ago and am feeling much better for it - much less sugary food (sweets, chocolate - not 100% reduction, but over 90%) - and am feling the benfits in my running already and hopefully the 2 weeks holiday will help as there are too many sweet temptations at work as peaole area always bring stuff in to eat.
C u all later.
Well done PJAZ
Weird suddenly realised I'd had no notifications for the last few days. I'd missed all this page.
Well as I'd said, the plan this year was nothing over a half. So how did a suggestion this week get me doing a hilly, predominantly off road marathon and a bit? With no training?
Last week had been by far the most intense I'd done in months:
Friday night 9 miles, 'back to back' with a 12 early Saturday morning.
Tuesday 30 mile round trip, bike commute.
Day off Wednesday, early swim.
Thursday, bike commute 30 mile.
Not exactly heavy on the running?
Anyway, glad I did it. About 5 miles I realised I was getting a blister, about 15 miles the blister had got beyond being a pain, I could tell it was burst and could ignore it easier than before. By 18 I was definitely ignoring it as my hips and lower gut were telling me "You're not used to this!" in no uncertain terms. As I was running with someone else I used time at the checkpoints to stretch out.
Water, 2 squashes, tea, coffee.
Sandwiches, buns, cakes, apple pie and cream.....
I managed to avoid most of it, topping up my water and using gels. But one thing I couldn't miss. The last checkpoint, small bowls of tinned fruit in juice. AFAIK an unusual choice? I found it surprising, but very welcome!
Weather couldn't really have been much better. We thought it was going to be a scorcher, but the cloud cover stayed in place longer than we'd thought. Occasional cool breeze was a bonus.
Last 4 miles were tough, hips were complaining. There were a couple of ascents we walked, but the rest was done ignoring the hips and with a definite jog
Good thing is an early start meant I could get to an afternoon family 'do'. I've been able to keep moving and stop my legs seizing up. Hopefully the only things to give me trouble will be the 2 MASSIVE blisters....
nice run Garry hope the blisters and the hip doesn't give you any jip as its only three week to matlock
some of the route takes you around my neck of the woods and on the routes I use , not done anywhere as much as that in training this week 2 runs 1 six miles the other 8 and a 26 mile bike ride that was going to be a short bike and a run but got a bit carried away with the nice weather and extended the bike ride
