Keeping our group together
SeeJay is in training for Bristol & Cardiff ½'s, so he's looking to run 8-9 miles. I'm hoping he'll agree to 8
did 5 miles on Wednesday but have been resting up as we have a friend coming down from Cricklade today and were going to run part of the Bristol H/M course it gives me a chance to practice pacing her before the big day and her a chance to see how far she can run at that pace
this is the third time I’ve had ago at trying to get her under the 2hr mark we usually try when we run the Cricklade H/M the first year i help her knock 23 minutes of her time but last year she wasn’t really up for it and she drop of the pace
this year however she more determined as she wants’ to go sub 4 hr at Brighton this year we thought we have ago at breaking the sub 2hr at Bristol as it the first in a set of 3 we run very close to tougher in fact last year we run the Bristol, Cricklade and Swindon H/M on consecutive Sundays
Hi all. Just back from a few days in caravan.
Some news. I have got to the bottom of my pain in the sole. It appears I have plantar fasciitis of all things. I think it as been caused by walking at least a hour a day in brogue type shoes with little support for my heavy frame and then walking the dogs for another 40 mins in sandals! So probably my gentle Brooks comforted plods have been the least damaging. So have bought new walking shoes for the commutes and walking between offices and will wear my running trainers for the dog walking. At least I now know what it is.
will probably do 10 today if i get up in time to go to the early weight watchers meeting if not it and i over sleep will be 5 as i won’t have time to do 10 and go to later weight watchers meeting
Kev glad you got to the bottom of thing's hope your foot inproves
Hi kev sorry to hear youve got trouble with your foot but at least u know what it is so can do all the right things for it x
Yesterday i was soaked through - it poured all the way throth my run and cycle!!!! I did just under 13 mile run then just under 10 mile cycle - was so cold when i got home i put the heating on!!!!
Thats 8 weeks of my training done - now another 8 weeks to go - help !!!!
Today i have pool workouthis morn - leg massage pm - pilates this eve - will be glad when this is over as its costing me a fortune trying to keep fit - lol
Ttfn nessie x
Not good news Kev, but at least you know what it is now and how you can treat it.
Nessie, sounds like you got some good training in. Pity you couldn't join us yesterday but maybe next time.
Well since I last posted, I've managed 2 outings, 5.30 miles last Thursday in 45:36 (ave 8:36) and 8.05 miles yesterday in 1:11:49 (ave 8:55). Last Thursday was so hot, it really did take it out of me. Yesterday's run was just what I needed! I ran the cycle path from Bitton out towards Bath and back with Seejay and a friend of mine, Ally. I've not run 8 miles since May, so it was really good to get that distance under the belt again, a real confidence booster. The second bonus was that Seejay kept the pace really steady, which was just what I needed. The third bonus was meeting Seejay again (always a pleasure)......oh, and the post-run bacon butties!
I'm looking at a short and steady recovery run tonight, just to flush the legs and then maybe a 5 miler tomorrow.
Have a good day everyone!
Good running CB - sorry not to have joined you all but i am very slow and get worried about holding people up so i guess im better plodding on my own - glad you all enjoyed though. x
Well 10 miles for me today the whole run took 1:26:16 with an Avg pace of 8:28
No need to be worried Nessie, everyone has their own pace. You would have been more than welcome!

4+ miles for me tonight, helping my better half to get back into it. Unfortunately the recent hot weather didn't agree with her running!
Haven’t decided what to do today it’s a tossup between a 5 mile run and a gym session in the garage after the gym session with my wife’s PT i do know i need to work on my upper body strength so i suppose i should get on the weight bench in the garage
Had a rest day yesterday but must get a run in today even if it's just a 3 mile recovery run on the treadmill
had an email yesterday morning to say my replacement Garmin was on its way just looked at the delivery tracker for UPS and according too that it should be here today so that’s a 4 day turn around
