Your welcome Megalily, hope he sorts you out.
Beat the Bore this morning at 8.15am, it was pretty nippy, first time I have had to get the thermal base layer out this winter. The frozen ground was so rutted for a lot of the course it had serious ankle twisting potential but manged to get to the end unscathed, then ran back on the roads to get the mileage up. Ankles and calves a bit sore but hoping they will have eased off by tomorrow! Didn't beat the bore, think only one chap managed it, but did, just, get home as first lady albeit in a rubbish time!
Brer - logged off, finished cuppa and took the dog's out for a walk brill
All snow gone now just cold nasty rain and it's forecast to clear so will probably end up lethally icy hopefully the Mawddach Trail will be safe (flat & rough) as lanes will be definately dodgy.
T-Rex - hope you haven't done to much damage swinging about. Noticied i'm still on the list but 90% certain i won't be there, not 100% yet but it's looking that way.
Laudy what was the Bore you were trying to beat? visions of lots of runners chasing a large hairy pig at the mo?
I'm assuming tidal bore not porcine boar
Or someone not particularly interesting?
Beat the Bore
Aye the Severn Bore rather than the porcine kind, although if one of those had been chasing me maybe I would have run a bit quicker!
wayne- glad there's no damage except to your spikes that is...
Laudy- Beat the Bore sounds fun! I want to do it. That and Race the Train
Recovery day here today, so couple of plods and avoided the weather both times
Mawdach Trail Chrissi...soooo jealous!
Beat the Bore sounds interesting. Jason, do Race the Train..it is fantastico. Those African drums beating a war cry before you set off gets your heart racing until you remember..it's just a train. You'd thrash it anyway if conditions were in your favour underfoot. I wasn't that far behind it at the end so I'd certainly rate your chances.
Managed negative split at parkrun Saturday (7:45 1st lap, 6:45 2nd lap!!),,, Then out for a cold 9 miler Sunday morning before taking the dogs to see mrs Lemmy do cross country with the club in South Essex league... 1st full week of training since mid December and that 9 miles is the furthest I've run since last SNOD...
Bottled out of Benfleet 15 (me Wankles - Weak Ankles) so me & the dogs will again be spectating & supporting Mrs Lemmy & chums this Sunday and I'm doing 1st Run Director for parkrun Saturday, so need to run Friday for 5 miles (I reckon run home from work) and early Sunday morning for 12...
Mrs Lemmy's in Halstead marathon now... some focus for her training...
Glad everyone's keeping well and training hard...
I didn't do parkrun in 14:30 by the way, that was my average pace for each lap...
Resurected my Good Run Guide Snowdonia Marathon route this morning.
If it's of interest it's here.
I'm presuming it's still the same as 2010?
What parkrun do you do Lemmy?
I've been getting twitchy waiting for the Chelmsford Parkrun which starts this Saturday
I've also signed up for Halstead so you might want to warn Mrs Lemmy!
been reading this thread for a while, thought I would say hello as I have now officially entered thsi for 2013.
Currently coming back from injury so only managing 5 miles, three times a weel. Plenty of time left yet....isnt there?
Hope weather stays dry morrow, I've taken the afternoon off work n I'm heading out for a nice hilly coastal path run.
JD-are you in rehab? I bet those Yaktrax have come out of the box by now
Mr Ben, same awesome route buddy. jenf..have fun, tis like the North Pole here so had to resort to dreadmill..aaarrrggghhh plus Spin Class with major bootcamp trainer..double aaaarrrrgggghh.
Wayne, you like some nice runs chap. Did you get out for your run?
Lemmy- well done on the 5k
brer- Yaktrax only useful in compacted snow or ice- grrr! But I will not be beaten....
After this morning's aborted effort, icy roads and darkness tonight saw me juggling my sessions and turning to the joys of running 15m on the track... A bit slippery, but at least it was free of frozen puddles and floodlit. Pleased with the run cos it felt really comfortable- just as well as I had to turn the brain off and get into a rhythm to keep my sanity while going round and round and round....15.01m in 1.42.41 (6.50 av) splits: 7:07 6:41 6:58 6:51 7:05 7:00 6:57 7:04 6:57 6:59 6:38 6:39 6:37 6:36 6:29 3 Woohoo!
Bloody hell Jason, good going. BTW do you log your stuff on Fetch? You've some way to go to get to top position....
