Come one, come all; everyone welcome on this year long build up to the GNR
Shielsy - how are you feeling today?
I'm feeling much better, no dodgy stomach, no nausea etc. Of course, I feel as weak as a kitten but I'm just happy I'm not walking around the house with a bowl 'just in case'. My legs feel a lot better too.
Actually feeling not bad at all. My legs are pretty much back to normal and I'm contemplating running tomorrow or maybe Thursday.
Fiona - would that be another Marathon 'LOL'.
Good to hear you feeling better Shielsy
Good to see you're feeling better, Shielsy.
also that you're recovering from your heroics, Fiona. are you going to be on the moor on Saturday.
Going out into the sunshine for a bimble later. Looking lovely at the moment.
Legs are less sore than yesterday but I feel knackered! Par for the course eh, Shielsy after Sunday . Glad you're feeling better. Was going to swim tonight but have just opted out in favour of a quiet evening.
Nice 6 Mile walk tonight to stretch those legs out - feel better now
I'm going for a recovery run in a bit to catch up with a friend who smashed her half mara PB at Stratford on Sunday. She's been trying for ages and it's gone down by about 20 minutes!
XL - yep I'll be there. Wouldn't miss it. Only21 runs to go till I reach 50. It doesn't seem to be getting much closer.
RtG - glad you're legs are feeling better. That was a great PB By the way.
Vixx - that's a great PB especially if you've been struggling with it for ages.
Bear - that's a fairly long walk.
I remember it feeling like the 30s lasted ages, Fiona, but then I rattled through the 40s.Missing the whole of February slowed me down though. Pengwyn will be doing her 50th parkrun on Saturday
That sounds like a very pleasant way to stretch the legs, BP
Enjoy your trot, Vixx
XL - I know , I saw that in the results from last week. I best not hold her up this week cos a new PB on 50 would be fab if the conditions are right.
Thank you - I had a good plod around. Knee felt a bit sitff to start, but was good overall
Fiona - I am chuffed, but at the same time I am now scheming to see when and where I might go sub-5.....
Karlos - I've run a couple of races for Cancer Research. They wouldn't stop you running if you didn't raise the money prior to the race as most sponsorship money is expected after you've done it. I had a couple of polite reminders after as some money came in via Justgiving but the stuff you have to collect in person always takes a long time. I don't think they would expect you to make up the money so long as you get close to your target, though you should take the agreement seriously and do your best. I have heard of other charities who are a little more heavy handed. One that I request a charity place through (something to do with trees) asked for my credit card details before they would let me have the place so they could take the rest if I failed! - needless to say I didn't take them up on their offer.
She doesn't like to put pressure on herself by aiming for PBs, but Pen is going really well at the moment. I'm sure another sub-27 would be on the cards. She had a none too shabby run last week, in windy conditions.
On the charity point. I ran for Cystic Fibrosis in 2005. They wanted £250, but I managed over £400. They also paid my entry fee, some charities do that, some don't I believe. When I checked in to the charity tent afterwards, a lady asked me how much I expected to collect and was thrilled with what I told her. They gave me the impression that any donation was gratefully accepted, and I saw figures on her list that were below the asking amount, as well as many above.
I know it's a long time ago, so I expect the figure will have gone up, but if I were looking for a charity place, I would certainly check CF out first.
Am so happy legs are back to normal already I could run down the stairs again at work today. Even managed to do a 5 mile run tonight and feeling good after that. Looking forward to Bristol 10K on Sunday.
Bear - I contemplated a run but then the rain came on and I couldn't really be bothered so I didn't. As much as I love marathon training I also love having no goals.
I couldn't resist it the sun was out and it was warm. I have no goals at moment util I start my schedule for York in July I am just doing what I want
I'm getting ready for Luxembourg
Is that just because you really love luxembourg vixx or have you done aomething silly like entering another marathon ??
Vixx - Is that the night marathon?? that is only on June 8th you are mad mad mad
