Keeping our group together
I ran my planned 50 min fartlek session yesterday evening. Managed 5.78 miles, average 8:39. Started out about 6:30 last night, but was quite surprised how dark it got towards the end. Admittedly, it was on the cycle path and there was quite a bit of overgrowth. I must make a mental note to set out a bit earlier. Aiming to run 6 miles tomorrow, but it may turn into 7 if I feel up for it
SeeJay, all the best for Sunday mate and good luck also to anyone else running this weekend. Have a good one everybody!
never went out for a run yesterday decided to do a gym session in the garage for a change
Nessie sorry to hear you won't be at Bristol
Well it looks like a wet and windy Swansea for tomorrow, I will let you know later in the day how I got on!!!!
Nessie, take care of yourself and get that cough seen to, quickly!!!!!
Well managed a PB but not as good as I had hoped but certainly not dissapointed!!!! The weather was ridiculous, think I have only run one race wetter!!!!! Anyhow, as I say it was wet but it was so windy, reminded me of Edinburgh, certainly looking at my splits 6K to 9K where my slowest but managed to get in 25 secs quicker than my fastest!!!!! Good day at the office I would say!!
Fab PB Seejay.
Just back from a nice weekend away in Aberystwyth where we managed to miss all the raim!
Glad you enjoyed ffRAN!
Thanks Ffran, good to see your sister did a pb also, specially in the weather conditions!!!!
Thanks Kev, I wish the rain had missed Swansea!!!
****** FROM ROLLS-ROYCE STAFF MAGAZINE ******
Sometimes it DOES take a Rocket Scientist!! (true story)..
Scientists at Rolls Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners and military jets all travelling at maximum velocity.
The idea is to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with airborne fowl to test the strength of the windshields. American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the Windshields of their new high speed trains.
Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers. When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin like an arrow shot from a bow.. The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.
You're going to love this......
Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:
"Defrost the chicken."
Next race Nessie is Llanelli Half Marathon!
Toby, I seem to remember hearing about that one, typical yanks but so funny!!!!!
Ffran, do you remember a programme called 'children do the funniest things' I think it was called, some of them where hilarious!!!! Grand kids are priceless sometimes.
Nessie, thank you but please do me one favour, please go to the doc and get yourself checked out before you run again. In this damp weather it is not good to have such a cough and for so long!!!!! I am sure the rain and floods where horrible up your way, there where some real idiots on the motorway yesterday. I was driving with headlights and fog lights finding it difficult to see other cars and some people had no lights on at all!!!!!! Also some just sitting in the middle lane chatting and not looking around. I actually drove past nearly half a mile of traffic in the middle lane with no-one in the inside lane and we wonder why our roads are congested!!!!!!! Sorry, rant over!! We had some terrible flooding but it was really just the drains overloaded and as the rain eased the flood subsided!!!!
Kev, I keep meaning to enter Llanelli Half but it would really take me to stop over, too long a drive to run a half and drive home again!!! Its also too close to London for next year but will maybe look into it for 2014!!
did just a couple of miles yesterday on the treadmill as it was quicker to shove on a t-shirt and a pair of shorts than all mt running gear
