...and the beat goes on...
Happy day in our house today. Mr Maj has been working away for 4 months and he's coming home tonight
Hi Eveyone.....was aiming for 8 miles this morning but running up Arthur's Seat was like scaling a sand dune, really slippery, with snow being blown in my eyes, ears and nose. Not nice. So slid back down and packed it in at 6. Shame as really wanted to get out of the house for a good run, kids on half term and I booked a babysitter so I could get out. Desparate times calls for desparate measures!!
oops..my pc ate my post.
wi, I've got the ' pro' ones but they are several years old. They're the old version of this I see that there are lots more of these things on the market, now.Maybe someone has the more modern' plastic' ones? New snow gets a bit stuck in them.They're fantastic for packed snow, though.
My early- morning run in the snow was lovely.I left my tracks alongside those of foxes and hares...but, on the way back, the snow had covered them all up. Now, the lovely falling snow has been replaced by driving rain and it's just plain miserable..Brave attempt, Sarah. Arthur's Seat is hard enough in summer.
all that talk of snow...!! I bought my chains and it hasn't snowed since.....I SOOO want to get them on to try them. A mate has spikes that he slips on his trainers and he says they are good for ice and anything slippery and going down hill. So plenty out there.
managed to knock 5 mins off my 12k run (uphill!!) this morning, last did that route in Sept, so am chuffed with that.
After this mara, am aiming for the 22k in this
anyone fancy it??
Steady there Maj......will be a nice Valentines Day for you then - I'm glad he's back for you.
ha ha Johnny......
I will be glued to the match ce soir
oh yeah,,,,,,Special One

I think I am in Pink, will get number to you tomorrow
PC - stick with us, love. We'll show you taper madness as it should be done...
DV I am in the pink pen - I will get the number tomorrow - off to bed - 16 miles today as I am away this weekend - let very very long slow runs begin - when you are in the pink pen - people get married, have babies, break up ... all in the time you are out for a run
YM: congrats on the assessment. That's really good news.
I made myself run in the teeming rain today. I didn't mind it until I sloshed through a puddle in my shoes and then had "heavy shoe syndrome". I only managed 30 minutes, but it's better than nowt!
Some tremendous training efforts going in by you mob. I'm not sure I'm going to have enough miles in the legs to actually start...I'm seriously reconsidering whether or not I should even start.
Hey Maus you have to start ... who's going to keep me company whilst trying NOT to think about needing a pee at the start!!!
Who cares how we do, its the fact we do that counts, if that makes sense - I call our style of training the iceberg method, incremental almost invisible steps towards our goal, but we get there Maus, we get there - heavy shoes, rotten weather, my mum used to say - 'those are the days you get paid for, not the easy ones'. I'm with you - keep going Maus, we will get there!!!
Audrey - Well done getting 16 miles done in these conditions. I was out for 6 miles earlier and between the rain, the flooded roads and slushy pavements I think my weight doubled due to carrying the soaking I got.
Maus - I must admit I'm also concerned about the mileage I'll have done prior to Paris and must admit the thought has crossed my mind to pull out. I'm trying to view this one as seeing the finish line would be a victory.
