Nothing to report here Weekend's 10 mile race shelved - just felt really achey and tired, so couldn't see the sense in trying to race 10 miles. Shame really, as recent runs had hinted at a pb ... still, I've been running long enough now to know that there's always another race on another day . Couple more rest days and hopefully I'll be back out there!
Hope everyone else is recovering/avoiding injury and illness and enjoying their stargazing
stilldreaming, that wouldn't be the Stockport 10 on Sunday, by any chance? I was there. Sorry you weren't able to run.
Sorry, a little bit out with my info. It's surprising how much the inner planets move over one day. The line of three is nearer the 2 o'clock/8 o'clock axis and Saturn is about twice as far from Venus as Mercury is. Great moon this morning - not sure how visible it will be tomorrow. Very slender and near the horizon.
No, you haven't stumbled on the wrong forum by mistake. It's this sort of chatter that keeps the SNOD thread going throughout the years.
Hey team..stargazing..out on a 13 miler last night and was treated to a really beautiful starscape. 8 miles tonight but too busy looking at icy pavements
Chrissi, thanks for info re, Garmin watch. I'll get in touch with them. Failing that.....oh no..could I be tempted by the 610?????
Hi SD..never mind, there's always something else around the corner
HI TR40..did you get to have snow fun?
JD, has your monitoring fun finished at work? We have just undergone the same manic, stressful procedure. Random selection of pupils/work/marking/ SEN reports..aaarrrgghhhh.
Britnick..how are you buddy?
Rather a sobering thought that today will be the last day for most if not all of us to experience a date with the same number for day, month, and year. Next time will be 1 Jan, 2101.
Entries open soon!
not worked out the planets yet but did see loads of shooting stars while walking the dogs at 6am this morning.
abandoned all ideas of running last night - ended up in a heap on the floor just walking the dogs down the field
Hi there brer, very well ta. Still glowing from 3 PBs over the past two weekends. :-0 To get a PB on a 7th running of the Stockport 10, I must be doing something right. This running to work (or walking or mincing in the ice) seems to be working wonders.
T Rex, I looked out for the alignment this morning but the moon must have sunk. Didn't see any shooting stars either, Chrissi.
jason d, how come you're still grumbling about the ice now you've got Yaktrax? Don't you trust them?
A thaw is setting in tonight. It'll be up to 8 deg C into the weekend.
Quiet on here....
Wet roads= no slipping, no rain either= perfect 8m easy done and dusted. 100m round trip planned for tomorrow for my first Parkrun!
Well that was a disappointment! Aber parkrun turned out to be my worst 5k for AGES. Don't know if it was the fact that i haven't slept much for the last 2 nights, but I just couldn't get out of second gear. I have had faster and longer tempo runs lately!!!! Oh well, a morning out.... 5k in 19.09
Hiya team, are we all busy? Jason, that sounds fast enough for me but sorry you are disappointed
Britnick-great going buddy, something is going well there Are you doing Ashby 20?
Well, my final 12 mile lsr before Portsmouth turned into 18 miles due to beautiful conditions and what a good way to avoid the Christmas stuff!!!
brer - no Ashby 20 for me (when/where is it?). Staffordshire Moorlands Christmas Cracker tomorrow (8 miles from Tittesworth up along The Roaches and back) and Tour de Helvellyn next Saturday from dark 'til dark.
Another Parkrun for me today - 22:33 was 1 second off PB. It was the usual collapse to the ground gasping for air after crossing the line, so not sure if I could have gone any faster.
jason d, you must have revved the balls off your engine to get 19:09 in 2nd gear. Is it knackered now? Seriously, you did a 100-mile round trip for a 5k??
That's more like it. Travel 5km to do a 100-miler.
Just as I was beginning to get the use of my bad arm back I burned my hand on the other one quite badly this morning! Large burn about 3" long up my right thumb. I was rescuing youngest son's paper serviette which had somehow got tangled up with a candle and didn't quite make it to the kitchen sink in time so I had to put a burning hand under the cold tap on and off for half an hour. Fortunately only thumb damaged.
Still, you don't run on your thumbs and I'm looking forward to getting out soon.
T Rex- Ouch
Talk about the best laid plans of mice and men....
Well, went out TWICE today to try a long run. Gave up in the end cos feeling really rough and light-headed. Decided to skip it and return to base. Hopefully, better tomorrow.... Total of 4.5m !
