I've entered - no going back now!!
Mrs EH is on the mend her Elbo is not as Elephant like but it is still swollen and a lot of bruising has come out but is going back to work today so must be feeling better.
RD you will be fine they will give you that School headmistress look off for cold shower.
lol eastham! glad mrs eh is on the mend
maybe next year for the cheltenham - not ready for another marathon just yet!
just been for a 5ish mile run with a friend, up a VERY big hill - and we did the steepest bit. got further up than last time before working, so progress. my friend never stops grrrrrr!!!
found this poor thing back on page 5
friend dragged me up another hill yesterday, not so bad as last week, and i made it all the way to the top without stopping, although movement was barely discernable to the human eye!!
did the london 10k on monday which was great fun, would recommend it.
newbury 10k on sunday, it's multiterrain and a bit hilly so not a pb course but should be fun, hopefully.
how's everyone else?
Glad everyone is doing really well with their training and their new improved racing times. Fantastic effort everyone.
RD - good luck with your newbury 10k on sunday. I looked at that one but it clashed with my local race, fairford 10k, so am doing that one instead. Its an undulating course which i have run many times in training. I was ill the week leading up to it last year so have some unsettled business with this race. Last years time was 42.29 but am hopefull of going sub 40 this time around. The only downside, its always hot so know i am going to cook tomorrow morning
Have a good un everyone...
hope it went well, marty!
did about 53mins at newbury which i'm pleased with - a pb. forgot to turn off garmin so need to wait for results to be posted before i know exactly what i did.
how long til your next mara, eastham?
Well done RD. Sounds like all that hill training is paying off. Fantastic time. Now you have the anticipation of waiting for the results to know your exact time. Thats sometimes more fun that the race itself!!
Don't know about you, but the weather here was perfect for running. It was overcast, a little drizzle which stopped when the race started. But i was surprisingly nervous before the race. Perhaps because it is my local one and i have run the course loads of times so expected to do well. My time was around 38.27 so was buzzing when i finished. It hurt, but at least those demons of last year have been laid to rest.
My next race is a flat 10k at dorney lake next saturday. A PB perhaps?? I was only 1 min 15 secs off with two major hills today so you never know?????
lol eastham - glad it's not just me!
i've heard beachy is brilliant.
fantastic time, marty! looks like dorney could def be a pb for you
*cartwheels into thread*
results are up - 52:55!!!! a pb by 1:53!!!
Toying with the idea of the Amsterdam marathon in October but not sure I have the mental fortitude to start a new training regime?
