10.1 miles for me.....verrrry humid

05/07/2012 at 17:51

Oh are you doing this again for another month, is it too late to enter?

Will anyone notice if I saunter in and enter my mileage a few days into the month?

ive just entered my first day of july chimpster , so cant see why not

Not much contribution from me until Sunday unfortunately, 10K race last night in the tipping rain, but of course the sun came out at the end.

Top tip:  If you're 5ft nothing with less strength than a pipecleaner, don't try to drag your washing machine across the kitchen floor or you'll end up with a mangled and very painful foot. 

I'll see how things go over the next couple of days, but it's looking very much like I'll have to opt out of the challenge this month - I don't want to drag down the average with a row of zeros.

5.02m am and  6.43pm, so 11.45 for the day

Tikka- ouch! take care....

5.75 recovery miles for me tonight....

Tikka - hope the foot is just bruised and not as bad as you fear...

Thanks, guys.  I feel such a numbskull - the washing machine weighs twice as much as I do so, with hindsight, it was always going to end in tears.  I'll rest up for what's left of this week and hope that I won't be required to dig out my rusty chainsaw for the purposes of amputation.  #dramaqueen

2.95. Need more distance and less speed. Rest tomorrow though.

05/07/2012 at 21:39

Ouch Tikka! Hope nothing serious...

10 miles this evening... bit lower than last month on mileage at the moment but should still clear 250 for the month even with a taper.

Tikka , take care

4.1 for me, not a lot but part of my first ever duathlon. Very weird how the legs felt after the run, felt stiff and like not moving, but actually going ok - just used to the bike speed I guess. Bit of fun anyway, back to two-footed motion tomorrow. I'll settle for 100 less than you this month WiB (as most months) - especially as your ultra is twice as long as mine

7 odd miles this evening with a 3 mile tempo run in between.

Almost never happened due to Richard II on iplayer and a post tea snooze.

I do like my naps and a bit of Shakespeare.

Today I ran in green.

Ps thats not a Shakespeare quote I actually wore green shorts and a vest

SEF- Richard II was awesome wasn't it? That may not have been a quotation, but here's a quotation from the play that warns about not training enough for our forthcoming marathon and hitting the wall in the race...well, it could apply!: " I wasted time, and now doth time waste me" (V.ii)

Happy running guys! Nothing from me this morning- just the 1 run today

06/07/2012 at 17:37

Only a mile behind, lets go RW!

06/07/2012 at 18:10

20 miles for the cause today. Considerably less tomorrow!!

06/07/2012 at 19:45

Sorry guys

HORRIBLE run in vile weather tonight! Planned to do 13m, but road on my route was flooded and had to cut it short to 10m- and I wasn't sorry at all10.01m at 7.51 av

I'll make up for it tomorrow

06/07/2012 at 21:22

Good to see RW runners taking all top 5 places at the mo- but the fact that we're behind just goes to show that it's the middle and lower table that will win/lose it for either team

An enjoyable 12 miles by headtorch over the South Downs tonight... I forgot how much fun it can be to run at night on the trails although I did jump when a basger ran out in front of me!
