12TH JULY 2005
Evening .... long run this afternoon.
Thanks to Nutty for her company and coming up Afan Argoed at short notice. This week I only blew up at 17.5 miles today and managed 20 in 2:26 so better than the last few weeks. Compared to even last Jan things are going pants. Seeing as my marathons always go far worse than my training I could be in for a kicking in Snowdon.
Was a good run over Afan Argoed. Thanks WA. Good pace too. You will be fine, have faith in your ability.
Cardiff for me this evening to catch up with some old friends. Fine food, plenty of cake. Can't be beaten.
Tracey - sometimes life takes over. How is your foot these days?
Another lovely day. Enjoy
Can it be true - more sunshine? Bit chilly to go with it; winter is beckoning.
Freezers full of pork and sausages hanging - I love making sausages; best bit is frying samples for testing
Compensates a little for the rubbish veg harvest this year - nice to store away for the winter (must have some squirrel ancestory?).
20 in 2.26 is not to be sniffed at Alex - I reckon I could manage 20 fruit pastels in 2.26, does that count?
I sort of counts Boffin. Sounds like you have some nice food stashed too.
XC this morning in Margam and my legs are still trashed from yesterday.
Morning all. Nice to have 2 fine days on a weekend
Oh bugger, long post on how wonderful running without pain and in sunshine is, and how great it must be to have a freezer full of home produced pork, and I've pressed some random combination of keys which has deleted the lot! Don't even know what I did wrong either, bugger.
Ah well - run, breakfast and email/forum time over, bet get on and see if I can find a way to make teaching the English of population density statistics anything other than deathly boring.This is going to be tricky...
Margam Park was a lovely setting for the race today. Excellent time was had by all. I got second lady in 21.44. Didn't fall, amazingly
Annoying when that happens Tracey. Hope you got work sorted.
Boffin - sounds like the good life is exceedingly good!
Tracey, shame when that delete thing happens. Good on the run though.
I did the XC. Did just over a min faster than last year and finished ahead of some people I was behind last year. I let myself down in the last 1 to 2 k. Should have kicked for home but did not have the confidence to do so. Still, with my legs tired and most of my recent training having been pants I am not dissatisfied.
Nutty did well again I think PTH swept the board too.
Here we go again.
good running on here this weekend.the weather was great for it,.....I went mountain biking in bristol saturday.but I was on my hybrid......I am aching from holding on a bit tight whilst trying to stop myself screaming and swearing.........
then a nice run yesterday.only 5.4 miles but the first run in a week
I'm sure it was a great post Tracey...running without pain - and in the sunshine, things are looking up
Seren - it was a lovely weekend. Nice to get out in dry weather.
A few of us are doing the Pudding Run so anyone fancy something to eat afterwards?
Three weeks and I can relax, eat loads (even more than usual) and not have to worry about marathon training for a while
morning...can't decide what the weather is going to do ...but its cold here
"I am aching from holding on a bit tight whilst trying to stop myself screaming and swearing."
That comment also relates to the cycling is it Seren ?
Alex - lol
What a day yesterday was! Get kids sorted, work, swimming, more work, cook tea, evening class, internet shopping, marking, book, bed. Was utterly exhausted and then, most unusual for me, couldn't sleep as was so overwrought.
Today will hopefully be quieter...
A bit of early shearing this morning - one of the ram lambs decided to get too close to some bramble and got itself stuck. Poor thing would havb been there all night in its prickly bed. I cut it free, broken back and all, did it thank me? Nope, off it wandered and straight to eating grass.
Nice to know you are appreciated!
