yep, more food = more fuel = less time = less watching crap TV
10.63m for me today. Early days, but we're looking good, guys
More running today, to work but extended my minimum possible distance of 2.3 to about 7.5m. Very enjoyable, on frosty and icey streets at the off (I've got quite good at running on this stuff over the years) then made it to the dock village and saw a great sunrise illuminating the new docks and old "ghost piers" before passing through town centre past all the people walking into work.
So therefore... as I know YP finds this detail important more fuelling. Banana, 2 clementines, coffee, brown toast and mini fruit pancakes felt like a good reload
Thanks DE - you both know I was joking don't you?
I had a shocking run on Sunday (probably partly due to a lack of fuelling ironically), and ended up curtailing an 18m run and turning it into an 11m slow slog. I think it was probably a combination of a busy week last week, a franctic Saturday with both kids' christmas fairs, then a crap night sleep on Saturday night followed by waking up at 4.45am.......... doesn't sound like a great prep for a long run does it?
However, did 11m this morning, and it was lovely - nice and crisp underfoot, and really enjoyable.,,,
My post-race re-fuel was a large tub of porridge, with raisins, honey and cinnamon... YUMM YUMM YUMMY....
You did well to get that far under the circumstances on Sunday YP, good effort
porridge +++ mmmmm
Finally pulled my finger out and got in a 5am easy 3 mile run. -4, so mild enough for shorts. Really enjoyed it, alarm set for another early one Thursday (or tomorrow if i can sneak out without waking the wife)
Nice one JR, like your thinking on the shorts, if your too cold for shorts your just running too slow or you've run too far and can't warm up any more! I only see long legged tight or ronhill type things as acceptable on the legs of Team RW to catch mud on if your on a muddy off-roader
Promise I'll run somewhere today JD, probably out and back on the unlit Hornsea Rail path in the dark
Evening fellow team-mates
I managed to sneak in a mid-day 11.3 miles today - but will admit to being a wuss and wearing a long legged tight... In my defence though I was off-road and out on the hills for the entire run, so maybe it is just about defensible?
Team Fetch do seem to have started to close the gap a bit don't they - pesky blighters!
Hope DEot doesn't fall over and hurt himself in the dark...
Ah YP I think that meets the criteria . BTW I did have a headtorch, but like yourself its proper out of town miles in the dark with just the stars and the moon otherwise Though if we get snow, I'll ditch the headtorch.
A few miles at lunchtime for me, before lunch
I agree YP, despite a good presence in top ten fetch are still close, pesky blighters pack well in the midtable
JD, have you run in yaktrax? I have a route which I would love to keep running on but can get slippy through the winter.
DEot, i too run out of town in the pitch black. My headtorch is a must.
YP, I don't own running tights or leggings but then i have more insulation on my legs than most people have on their head. I have to admit though, as i get older i am wrapping up a bit more. I'm definitely going soft! But in my defence i am from the South.
4.89 miles cleared today. Rain, mud, hills and lanes a foot deep in lovely orange water fresh from the fields.
JR- Yaktrax not arrived yet....
YP- I've got a petzl tikka plus headtorch and the beam on this is fine for seeing where I'm going.
8.xxm run tonight, just put my nose in front by a mile. Not for long I fear, 5k Parkrun planned for tomorrow. Looking forward to it because I haven't done one before (involves a 100m round trip!), but won't do much for team milage, I fear.... I'll see if I can add a few miles on
Yp - i frequently double headtorch it, but one of them is a bit rubbish and i use it more for being seen than seeing.
Hi, not had the need for double-headtorching before, though people say the brighter the light the better it keeps you awake I believe. May be good for full night outings. I got an LED Lenser H7R this year, cracking piece of kit and not expensive either, adjustable field of light and very nice slide switch to control power output.
YP, never thought of putting my headtorch there! I tend to get on ok with just the one but i suppose it depends where you're running and under what conditions. I will certainly try this approach though as I like to wear a cap when its raining and the two don't sit well together. Will also look up the STABILicers, thanks!
Not exactly silly o'clock but out at 7am this morning for a nice easy recovery run of 2 1/2 miles. Yesterdays run took it out of me a little due to the conditions but I feel much better now i've had a run.
Just noticed i'm off the bottom of the table too, now for a push to premier league survival!
Well that was a disappointment! Aber parkrun turned out to be my worst 5k for AGES. Don't know if it was the fact that i haven't slept much for the last 2 nights, but I just couldn't get out of second gear. I have had faster and longer tempo runs lately!!!! Oh well, a morning out.... 5k in 19.09
8.97m for the day. Ooh it's close.
