1st longish run of the year 15.5 miles mixed terrain but mostly roadLovely morning - Down to Tshirt and could have used shorts
evening al! No shorts for me , but I did a nice little 8 miler this morning with some friends, so just an easy 'chatty' run. Planning an off road 12 miles tomorrow.
Won't be on swiss valley track morrow Jason... I'm heading into Pembrey forestry!!
Jason - LOL - That's pretty much what Elspeth said reading same comment!
Wayne- well done
Great confidence boosting run for me today 18m with 1095m ascent (first half all uphill, second half downhill) in 2.04.45 (6.56 av) splits: 7:23 7:26 7:19 7:26 7:24 7:21 7:15 7:07 7:05 6:41 6:41 6:44 6:38 6:34 6:36 6:26 6:25 6:12
Other good news= 2.2 lbs weight loss this week and 100.74m run for the week. My first 3 figure week for a few months
First run of 2013 just done it was so good to get back out again.
Some fantastic running and races planned already for everyone i see. I won't be joining you all at SNOD this year but i have got 2 summer halves planned already and i really need to get the mountain bike Mr C bought me 2 years ago muddy this year.
The get back fit plan starts tomorrow with Insanity at 7am
JD, WM2 two cracking runs there guys
Easy 4 miles for me down the prom First good weeks running for me for along while starting to feel back on form
Well i have signed up for what will still be my 5th snod after having to miss out last year at the last moment.I am hopefully going to have a better year this year running wise and have started to plan the year ahead,was looking at the Anglesey half marathon on march 3rd as my first race are any of you guys doing it?
Hope your shoulder is on the mend Trex,are you back out running yet?
Hey a few more names back to join us. Another nice few runs completed team, well done. RR, may do Anglesey Half after John Bach's recommendation but may have another cunning plan. Gotta think about it first though as I make break what's left of my body! Couldn't go running yesterday as body decided it needed a complete re-fuelling. Constant eating of crap all day rendered me beached however a weigh-in this morning showed I had managed to lose 4 pounds over Christmas which was a shock. I can ill afford to lose that much when I only weigh 7 stone normally. Anyway, suitably re-fuelled, 19 miles completed today in thick fog and massive carb load session afterwards. Aim for weekut on 4 pounds!!
HAVE A GOOD DAY TOMORROW GANG!!
TR40 et al - had another X-ray and the (vertical) gap between the two broken bits of clavicle is filling with bone nicely but I have some damage to the deltoid nerve which runs in a groove alongside this bone. This produces bouts of pain in the upper arm, like a cross between an electic shock and a muscle tear. I've found what seems to trigger it most is swinging the arm and rotating the torso, so when I'm finally back into running I will have to effect a motionless upper body technique ...
Great to hear all the stories and enthusiasm so long before the event.
T Rex jnr has taken up running!! He's entered the Cardiff half in October along with his girlfriend. He is very fit from climbing and biking, does a bit of triathlon, and feels 1:50 is a good target for a first race, which he announced eyeing me suspiciously. I said I'll enter as well and aim for 1:40!!
I've got a feeling he's going to be training hard over the next few months ...
Trouble is I'm doing my local LDWA 27-mile Challenge event the day before so I'm going to have to be at the top of my game to beat him. Also doing Abingdon as well as SNOD in October, so a busy month.
Happy as I managed just over 9 miles today. I've really let my fitness drop after Loch Ness mara, but now I'm confident I'm back in the game for my half marathon in February.
Just been sorting my rest of the year race plan. Looking good. Just running out of money signing up in races!
I know the feeling ...
