Good going Nessie!

4.45 miles for me on Tuesday and 6.05 miles last night. There's a small group of us planning a run from Bitton Railway Station tomorrow morning. My distance could be anything between 6 and 8 miles, depends who I run with.

Have a good weekend everyone!

Evening all

Well left my run late today as i only intended to do a short run today the idea was to run up to where Poohbear works to surprise her and get a lift home as it turned out i was the one that ended up being surprised as i almost got to where she works only to get a phone call from here to say that she had left early to go to the doctors and was at home

So I had to turn around and come home again so in the end ended up doing 10 miles at least the new Garmin got a good workout

Not a good run today - i was meant to do 15-16 miles but only managed 9.5 miles. Everything felt wrong !!!

Having mini panic now as its not lont till marathon and cycle - help !!!!

22/08/2013 at 15:06

well 10 miles for me today not the quickest I've done it in at 1:34:38 but it was a combination of a hard night at work and the temperature has gone up again making it far too hot to go flat out

Hi everyone, or should I say you few hardy souls!!!!!! I dont know why I dont post as much, maybe Facebook is too much of a habit now. Anyway, getting the miles in ready for a hopefully good Bristol Half. Doing 6 @ 10 min/ml on Mondays with the club and then about 8.5 on Thursdays @ 9:30 pace, then Sunday I have been putting the mileage up. First weekend (11th August) 9.1 @ 8.30 pace, second week (last weekend) 10.7 @ 8:40 pace, this week planning 11 @ 8:30 so fingers crossed. Getting a few niggles at the start of my runs from over my right knee but hoping my sports massage will sort that out.

Nessie, well done on your training, I know you are getting stressed about it but you are still doing the mileage even though its on different days from your program but dont worry!!!!

Kev, have a great time at the caravan.

Toby, sounds like you are still getting the quick miles in!!!!

Hopefully I will post a bit more often!!!!

Evening all

28/08/2013 at 15:25

29/08/2013 at 08:19

Morning all, I must admit I don't always find the time to post on here these days. A bit like SeeJay, Facebook seems to have taken over insofar as posting about running. I've managed 6 runs since I last posted. Sorry for the short message, I'm trying to keep on top of things both workwise and at home before I head off to Crete at the end of next week.

I hope you're all well and have a good day.

Nessie, when you have a run like that just drop your pace again, even if you walk the last 1/2 mile, it is demoralising to not finish a run but better to walk and keep your spirits up. Dont dwell on the unsuccessful ones, it makes the next one more ominus, specially if its a big one. 20 miles seems a lot but again if you thnk you might struggle just drop your pace and walk /run part of it. Distance running is as much about how you feel emotionally as being fit physically, if you have to fool yourself to thinking you can do it then use that tactic, I promise it works. We must arrange a meet up point and time for Bristol Half, I am on early start, I think, but would be more than happy to meet up at the globe in the Square!!

Toby, you seem to be running well as usual!!

Chris and I have come up with a date for another Bitton run/breakfast. It will be 13th October, weekend after Cardiff Half. Not sure of the time yet but wont need to be too early to give everyone a chance to get there!!! All distances and paces, run your own pace if you feel like it but we will start and finish at Bitton Station and then in for breakfast!!!!!

Oh, I also meant to say, my Club, Southville Running Club, is holding its first race on 27th October at 11 am. It is called the Nightingale Nightmare and it is a tough trail run. It all starts from Bedminster Cricket Club and it goes up Nightingale Valley and then round Leigh Woods for a total of 10K. As it is close to Halloween there will be a prize for the best fancy dress and free cake for every finisher. It is not an elite race so dont worry about being slow, there will be lots of slow runners. I have started a thread under 'EVENTS' with all the details on there including website and online entry. If you dont fancy it yourself please pass the word around friends and that includes Wales, Gloucester and further afield incase they might be interested. There is a 200 runner limit but if not sold out there will be entry on the night. Details are also on Facebook under 'SRC Nightingale Nightmare'. thank you!!!
