Morning all! Hope we all had a great day yesterday!
Good luck to the racers- think that's everyone here except me lol!
Just a MLR for me. I did actually end up running yesterday- 0.04m down the road to try out the new trainers that Santa brought me!
26/12/2012 at 14:11
Looking forward to the race reports

Combination of 25m on Monday and zero exercise yesterday left my legs feeling very stiff! Decided to scrap the planned 13m run in favour of 2 shorter recovery runs. Loosened up nicely by the end of a VERY WET AND WINDY jog

Evening all

A wet and cold Glynneath 5 today.  Did 31 mins which is a pb  for the course for me.  Got 2nd lady, first vet .  Didn't  hang around as was very cold after the race.

MM - good to chat.  Nice to meet Mrs MM too. 

JD - There is nothing quite  like running.

NR- well done

It was wet and the rain was really cold. I did warm up but legs were ice cold for first bit. Ran 5:44 for first mile (it really needed to be 5:30). Ran behind Charles W for the next mile hoping to avoid the headwind but he slowed so I clocked 6:13. Struck out on my own and did 6:05, 6:03, 5:53.

Must do better next time, but today was not the day. An easy 5m to unwind tonight.

26/12/2012 at 22:52
WA - wow! 5.30 is my target 5k pace, not 5m.....
Well done
26/12/2012 at 23:22

Year before last I ran 3 x 5:30 miles at the start of the MT10. Not that the rest of the race went well but it is asperational.

and that was 2 x 5:30 downhill.

26/12/2012 at 23:40
Aspirational? Sounds like suicidal! unless you're in sub 35 min 10k shape.....
27/12/2012 at 08:27
I also get s bit down when my spelling slips.
27/12/2012 at 08:28
Morning all!
More rain and wind here today....
27/12/2012 at 08:34
I know, was looking for 2 x 530 & 3 x 6.

Anyway anoyher shit day.

6.5m recovery run done on the flat. Only to find car battery was dead and then ran 2.8m home....

27/12/2012 at 11:12

Oh dear. Un unplanned 2.8 miles

27/12/2012 at 12:41
Unplanned and hilly! Best part is my original run was only going to be 5, but I extended it to 6.5!
Bought a 5kg medicine ball in the sales. Now I have got sore abs!
