...and the beat goes on...
It's simply bracing and 'dark 'is so flattering......You'll look fab * and only slightly bonkers *
Thanks for the warm welcome all
Living and training in Denmark for my third marathon(first time Paris) so still very much a beginner. planning on training 4 days a week this time round, id love to nail a sub 4, which means, knocking of a whooping 15 minutes of my pb(shivers).
surprisingly mild for late November so I'm of for a hilly 6 miler a little later on.(It's not very hilly really, more bumpy
Kaz gonna miss your input but family first right.

DV - 102 miles? At what point in a hundred mile race do you think 'you know, I don't think this run is quite long enough?'
To be honest, I entered this one on impulse... its a new race and I saw it mentioned, looked it up and realised that it is a gorgeous part of the countryside, checked the diary and found that I'm free that weekend, so filled in the details and I'm in...
It's the Cotswolds.. it's going to be lovely.. and I'll bet there is an ice-cream van on the way somewhere...
ok... lets have a roll call... who is injured/on the subs bench..? Who is already training for Paris..? Who is avoiding training because they have lost their mojo..?
Come on... fess up.. what are you doing..?
razdaz - Denmark, another country to the Paris thread list.
DV - Injured with mojo disappearing due to depressing run/jog freeze to death outings that don't seem to be doing any good. Made worse as I know I should be starting training for Paris on Monday and I'm one of those say I'll do something so do it types that gets really annoyed with myself when I don't do them.
Here endth the big moaning gits post.
injured (if that's the extremely pissed off face) Eggy had my rant for me so I'll just sit here and sulk some some.
Fit as a fiddle but cba running at the moment. Doing lots of swimming, volleyball, gym classes. But a bit bored of running. The thought of starting another training program next week doesn't fill me with enthusiasm. (Sorry to those who are injured and would love to be out running, but can't). I have a 10 mile race on 9 December, and I'm hoping that will get things kick started. Very busy at work, so that might be part of the problem. And it's dark and cold and wet...
It will pass. I will find my running mojo soon!!!
Evening - Injured. ITB, with 40 mins of stretching exercises to do four times a day from the running doctor. Did easy 30 mins pain-free on Tuesday and going to try an hour tomorrow. I'm supposed to do a 15-mile recce run on Saturday for the Hadrian's Wall run I'm doing in June, so fingers crossed i'll be okay.
DV - Cotswolds sounds nice.
Not injured at the moment (he said touching wood). Into week 4 of a 22 week "structured" plan - but my marathon training actually began at the beginning of Oct (so it's really a 26 week plan) - thats the point where i started increasing my mileage to above the "norm" with Paris in mind (even tho i didnt have a place at that point) - still got my mojo for now.
Mildly injured (sore ankle) - training for Disney Goofy (mid January) then I'll add speedwork into the mix for Paris.
Good mojo though.
In week 2 of training but I've already made the decision to cash in my "extra week". If I don't sort this I won't bloody well make it to Paris...
Ward I'll swap you Ross for my shonky leg and the Taff Trail?
1:30 in the half??
