cap66, had to laugh at your post. Read it just before going out for yet another marathon training run...didn't want to go as it was cold and I was knackered, but the I thought...sod it, just go. Did 13 miles instead of 8
Hope all are well, is it snowing where you are?
Hello everyone, is there anybody there???
Oy there you two! Busy here with wo*k, but still ticking over.
Catch up later....
Work's nuts at the moment, but the weekend is here Plans? Out into the Perfect Storm in a minute for a run, followed by inter-regional xc tomorrow through thick, deep mud....
Garmin 305 problem..my beloved watch doesn't seem to be charging very well..any ideas? I have never done technical things like clearing memory etc, it has 3 years of manic stuff in it. Could this be an issue?
Anyway..have a good weekend all plus good luck Jason for your next stage of madness
Been in a lot of pain and went to GP, who said it actually looks good and that I was "ossifying nicely". Something I've suspected for a long time, and nothing to do with breaking my collarbone on 16 Nov!
T Rex- sounds like good news....
I'm going to pick up a takeaway curry in a bit, but deserve it after a busy day. First, the mudbath in Builth, fell over when I sank almost to my knee in a mud filled hole, but didn't hate it quite as much as normal. Still no good at it though! LOL!.Then a nice run along the River Wye while I was there. I would have liked to have explored further, but didn't want to be left in Builth by the tem minibus! Then a nice leisurely run this evening as it was such a nice evening. Total of 16.5m for the day
Hi all, cheers for battery tip. Took it to a jewellers and he couldn't help me, too specialised!!
TRex, ossifying sounds positive, I think!
Final 20 miles of Portsmouth campaign yesterday, bad move as I went on the razz last night. Vast quantities of vino and vindaloo mixed grill not a good idea after 20 miles
Jason, sounds a lovely day out, hope you enjoyed the takeaway.
Brer- sorry you struggled today. I found that last night's lamb chilli balti, keema rice and vin rouge fuelled today's run nicely! Shame about the weather though....
16m done and dusted for me. Same route as last week, but horribly strong and cold headwind on the way back saw me run the same route as last week 1.38 slower for the same effort (if not more). Plan was to run the last 4m at around 6.30 pace, but the route is a totally exposed coastal path and in the last 3m I couldn't get below 7.00 miling! 1m warm down to finish, so 17 for the day. Splits for the 16 tell the sorry tale: 16m in 1.52.47 (7.03 av) 7:19 7:10 7:05 7:11 7:10 7:11 7:09 7:04 6:48 6:53 6:54 6:47 6:46 7:01 7:19 7:00
Holy hell Jason, you are making me feel cold just thinking about that exposed section. Good going though bud.
Brer - i had to send my 405 to Garmin to have a new battery, only they don't fit a battery they send you a recon replacement and charge about £80 but it was like getting a brand new watch
TRex - glad your starting to mend
Not much running going on here finding it really difficult to get out at night in the dark recent weather hasn't helped much either
For you early morning runners a great spectacle in the sky at the moment - three planets and the crescent moon. Was very good this morning and the moon will be one day smaller and nearer to them tomorrow.
Try looking tomorrow about 0700. Venus is the obvious bright planet. Some distance away, fainter, and at about one o'clock from Venus, it's Saturn. In the opposite direction, about a similar distance seven o'clock from Venus, it's Mercury. All three in a straight line.
Day 24 of my fracture and looking forward to when I can go out again. It's feeling slightly better each day.
