Well as the title says, I have signed up for the LNM 2013, havn't ran for a while and the longest I have done is 3 miles Race for Life. I have roughly a year to train. I stopped smoking at the start of this year and have gained 2 stone, so time to shed the pounds and get fit. I have my first Kettlercise tonight followed by a new craze of Metafit. Will post tomorrow to complain how sore I am.
No running at all as I need to invest in new trainers, the ones I have are really hurting my feet.
Anyone fancy joining me on the crazy ride ?!
I'll almost certainly do this again, too- will be my 5th go at it. Well worth it.
Are entries open?
Been researching new trainers and my brain is pickled, so much choice, so technical too. I think Im going to go to a shop and see what they recommend and hope I dont get fleased!
Well Ive seen Nessie so Im hoping she will make another appearance
Right..back into training today after my last race, which was a 50k ultra- legs still abit tired after 2 weeks, but need to get going again! At least the rain has stopped in Glasgow.
Have booked accomadation entry next weekend
I entered as soon as entries opened. This will be my 5th time. I suffered badly last year and then became ill. I thought it was a virus but it turned out I had cancer. Now that's why I found it so hard eh? I had surgery in January followed by radiotherapy and am now running again although I have piled on a couple of stone which don't seem to want to shift lol!
So I am going back next year to settle the score!
Roobarb!! that's the best excuse I've ever heard for a bad run! Hope next year is a happier one- good luck with your recovery.
tricialitt glad you're recovering from your ultra. I did a HM 4 weeks after Loch Ness and have suffereded for it!! Back in training from yesterday as I have felt so tired. Nothing arranged for next race yet although it will only be HM's for a while. Looking at Inskip (Preston) HM in Jan. See how training goes between now and the end of the year.
I did a 10k today - the first race in my comeback It was a pw but I really don't care Next one is Brighton Half in February
Ive entered the 5k Santa Dash on 8th Dec, this will be my first run. At the moment Im only running 1.5 miles before walking for a few minutes but youve got to start somewhere .... right?
Good lord Roobarb, hope your keeping better now, can I ask what pw is? Im new!
Big Mama- you are quite right- running 1.5 miles, then walking a spell is a VERY good way to train, and even to race, if you are going to find that getting round is your main goal- I did it for my first, and was surprised to see how good a time you can get that way. Don't knock it, run/walk is a very sensible idea- stick to it for the long runs, at least until you are comfortably managing about 15 miles, and just do the shorter, faster ones as continuous running when you can.
pw is personal worse- kinda opposite to personal best,
I am run/walking at the moment with all my runs as I get my stamina back. Its getting better though
I am fine now Big mama - everything has been dealt with and I can get on with my life. Except that this new phase of my life is going to be the best!
