Not really running properly at the moment. Big problem with pain behind knee (gastrocnemius).
My first taste of racing this year is now is going to be a little 39.3-miler in Connemara next Sunday. A little apprehensive.
Those of you recceing for Snowdon race beware of 30' drifts. Have you seen the pics in the news of diggers trying to clear the railway line but the surface of the snow is higher up than the bucket of the digger can reach so they had to give up.
How are those ribs, panad?
Happy Easter, everybody.
Happy Easter gang.
T-Rex Hope knee gets better, 39.3 miles........
Nice little 6 miler down prom this afternoon, going to start upping the mileage again next week.
Happy Easter Team...hope you have had a fair share of chocolate
Blimey Mr Rex..how's about just doing a little marathon instead? Hope it gets better soon buddy.
Well, what a glorious day for an 8 miler.....doh, it turned into 20 miles. Friday's 20 miles was supposed to be the last one before London but it was so ghastly, I needed a better performance. Wasn't planning it for today though, the miles just kept rolling by and it is such a beautiful day here
Off for a ramble with mad dog now before keeling over on the sofa!!
TR41-LOL-our most un-normal/supercharged chap has returned As ever Jason, bloody good going there chap!
VLM... I am dreading it, the chaos and need to be so organised about everything is totally out-weighing any 'feel good'factor. 18th marathon..I'm sure I'm going to hate this one, always enjoyed others. I hope I'm wrong. On the plus side, this is the only one I'm doing for sponsorship due to a child at school I work at. If anyone fancies chucking a couple of quid towards Macmillan Cancer Support, msge me, and I'll send you the link to 'just giving'
Lol Brer - I'm going off "road" running (Snod excepted ) after today's 15 mile tarmac trek! Seeing a large BMW approaching me and a pile of horse sh*t in the middle of the road, I kind of had a second sense that I was less important to the driver than his shiny car ..... luckily, I managed to leap onto the verge just in time .... I don't think my "wave" at him would be considered particularly friendly though
JD - that's more than I've run this year
great race result Jason, congratulations!
I did another variation on fartlek today as part of a longer run, dodge the huge waves breaking over the sea wall!!! it was SO cold out there I have to admit with wimping out after 9 miles, returning home, curling up to watch a Disney film and eat chocolate.
Will try again later in the week...
SD-I hope it was the one figure salute or something similar you waved to him-git! jenf...sounds like a good conclusion to that adventure.
Not a lot happening in Brer land...suspect my over zealous 2 x 20 milers in 2 days have caught up . Need to do a few more back to backs before Thunder Run though, I will be a shadow of my former self at this rate Troughed my way through chips, butternut squash lasagne and garlic bread to try to refuel today, but it aint working. Will try again tomorrow
jason - if you're ready to race head for London. The streets are paved with gold, or at the very least 1000s of discarded lucosade sport pouches.
brer - there's no chaos, it's all very well organised. I've done four of them and have enjoyed them all. FLM 1999 was my first race.
I've got a marathon later, this Llanelli so-called Great Welsh marathon.
Camlo - nutters? Us? Beware, it's catching ...
jason d wrote (see)
Just over 20m in total today and 324m for the month
Sneaks off to check my totals, as I thought, I can definitely beat 324 meters this month
OOOOHHH, just sneaked a look at my total for March..a measly 249, can't believe I couldn't round it up to 250...or 300
Thanks for reassurance about London, I'm sure it will be fantastico once I'm there..just a bit of a country bumpkin! On that note, just entered a marathon for this Saturday in rural Lincolnshire as the 'really, this is the last long one' before London! Loads of flapjack cps and pie and mash at the end
Camlo and JD, where are you staying when in London?
First "summer" Club run of 2013 tonight 6 miles of canal paths and back just before it got dark .... agtfsnod13
Brer - didn't realise this was your first VLM! You'll love the atmosphere and excitement of the race, but I'm guessing, will be glad to leave "the smoke" behind. London was my first marathon (and run in 26 degrees of heat ), so I have mixed emotions about it, but reckon I'm happier running over fields and trails any day! Glad you're taking your tapering seriously
is anyone else having problems with posts disappearing?? I'll try for a third time!!
