4 miles after work tonight along the canal. Beautiful run, orange sunset, crisp leaves littering the path, 4 swans swam by and one large tree root nearly ruined everything...
Anybody behind on logging? Looks like a lot of fetchies have updated and were well behind at the minute. Some RW people got some big logging gaps since early this month. I'll be getting some good miles in today, bit tomorrow and half decent LSR at weekend touch wood.
Think I was feeling a bit over-competitive yesterday.
Interesting few days running. Did a trail run in woods on Tuesday in shorts, t-shirt and plenty warm enough. Just me, the trees, lots of mud and headtorch - it takes more motivation to get off-road on dark nights, but always worth it. Got 11.2 in last night, but distanctly colder, part of session was sprints (very long WU and CD) and sweat was allowing the cold air through top. Coupled with moisture in air I looked like a "drowned rat" when I got home apparently, not bad going considering not raining I thought.
Going to be time for two layers most days and nights soon I think.
Nice easy 4.08 miles along the tow path today. Headtorch in use for almost every run now but very mild here so shorts and t shirt the only way to go. 11'c, its practically summer!
Finally managed to log in this morning. Thanks Bruce for the fix earlier this week!
will be my usual mid-pack placing I suspect (a bit like my racing really!)
Perhaps I'll have to get that run in this afternoon after all
Nice one jason d, had to cut my run short today due to kids clubs but squeezed in 5 miles.
I know this is a bit of fun / motivational, but still do we want to finish another month second fiddle to FE?
If not, were falling well behind again, so if you see this and haven't had chance to log, please do, doesn't take long and will put a smile on all of Team RW's face (including the mug of this slightly over-competitive plodder)
yeah godammit - please all pull your fingers out, get your arses off the chair, and run RUN RUN...........
Your forum needs YOU!.......
*pops head around corner*.... Hello.... did you call for reinforcements?.... I can only offer taper marathon, marathon and some small runs last week but if you want them - they're yours....
...or, in my case, No Deal, as I'm visiting from FE
lol! Love the sound of your run today, YoungPup. 10k for me round Crosby & Blundellsands, including the Antony Gormley 'Iron Men' installation on Crosby Beach - those guys continue to inspire!
We'll forgive the incursion swittle I've never seen them with my own eyes (only on tv), but I find those Iron Men quite haunting, which I think makes them effective art/sculpture (I'd like to see more of this sort of thing).
Smug you should be YP, for runs like that there should an "I'm smug cos I ran this beautiful morning whilst most the country snored" t-shirt sounds lovely.
Different to yesterday, beat the rain for my warmup, wind strong and gusted almost to a standstill at times, but no worries. I'd seen weather forecast and expected rain between 6-7 and it came at about 20'to, as soon as the hard reps started. Hard uphill reps and fast step-drills repeated many times in battering wind and rain that soaked me through in minutes was quite a challenge - could have been a "Rocky" montage. But, felt a tad smug for seeing the session through
Swittle - I've done a lot of running up and down the prom between Hall Road and Seaforth Docks, and have fond memories of the place.
DE - sounds like a tough session. Although I do a lot of running on hills I don't tend to do hill reps as such, but probably should.....
Tbh, not a big hill and only a short set of steps, its the pace thats hard. My usual off-road hills are bigger, but taken at a pleasent dawdle for the most part Hope to get a short leg-stretcher in tonight and about 13m+ hill trail tomorrow (oh how i love weekends)
Sorry guys, but still off-season down-time here
Although I might start to build the miles a bit next week....
