Keeping our group together
Ness, I started running within the last two years mainly to get fit and found I actually really enjoy the training and the racing. Have made some good friends now as well. My first half mara was Bristol 2009 which I did in 1:55 and now I'm down to 1:35, next year 1:25 ha ha maybe I rode a horse once and it did absolutely nothing I wanted it too
Seejay, course was alright, a lot of country lanes etc and I wouldn't say it was flat. The mile markers were bang on and the water stations were every 3 miles as they said. It really is a nice race and one I will definitely be doing next year.
Thanks Tazi, I was doing speed work on the track recently and really enjoyed it, definitely recommend it.
Hi Kev Welcome to the thread..
hi guys, some good times at Bristol, and likewise chippenham, nothing to report from me, still easing my way back, (had a set back due to trying to do too much too soon,but getting there again now!) doing an average of 100 miles p/w on the bike and clocking some respectable times for 5 and 10 mile time trials. Nice to have something competetive to do whilst im finding my running legs again!
enjoying the Nessie v Binx "ramble off"!! (dont think i've ever seen anyone give nessie such a run for her money-good effort Binx!) xx
You would enjoy Chippenham Seejay.
Towner, I read something recently saying that cycling can really improve a runner, I think you will be back faster and stronger than ever
I'm off out for a gentle 6 actually maybe 8
Stret it was good thanks, thanks for your recommendation.
Both myself and Stret are thinking of this weeks Weston Prom run 5, if anyone wants to join us. Mrs LBB is also considering it but is worried about being tailed off.
Glad you enojed it again LBB, spoke to Bidders earlier he said it was good as well.
What are your plans for the week running wise? I want to do 17 on Sunday if you or anyone on here fancy it, 9 - 9:30 minute mile.
Still no running this week went to the physio yesterday and he has advised me to lay of running until the shine split i have eases of so no running this week has given me a couple more exercises and to use a tennis ball to massage the muscles in the back of the legs
Towner and Toby hope your soon back to full running fitness.
SEEJAY Chippenham is a great half and i'll definitely be there next year
Ran 6.4 tonight in 59 mins with Tyango, which hopefully has put us in shape for Thursdays Prom run at Weston.
Hi RK welcome to the thread, glad you enjoyed your run tonight.
Have you thought of entering the Weston Christmas Cracker, you will meet many of us there in person
Thanks 2010 LBB. That date clashes with the Aberytswyth 10k which I was planning on doing - although this Weston one may make more of a family "day out".
I will certainly consider that one!!
Kev , just messaged you - Ta ever so Nessie -
LOL Stret I ride horsie nearly every day & it's quite a challenge persuading them to do what you want - they have quite a short attention span & can either get bored or you can blow their minds by asking too much too soon from them !!! Glad you enjoy the training & racing , you certainly have amazing times - I don't ever aspire to those sort of times but am quietly chuffed that slowly but surely my times are coming down!!!
Posted entry to Cracker at the beginning of the week - so fingers crossed I will make it this year got my outfit planned already - Hope you are all dusting off your tinsle in readiness for the run???
Hi Towner - did you say earlier on thread that you will be ready for the Cracker in December - if that is so then Binx & I might make you run with us so we can ramble on all the way round with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't worry only joking , I wouldn't inflict that on anyone - the good thing about chatting on here is no one actually has to read it if they dont want toLOL x
Toby, don't know if this is poss for you but when I had a few injuries a wee while ago I was advised to run in the pool - I know I looked a twit but I thought "What the heck" - as long as it was helping me recover & helping my running I didn't care - so I wonder if this is an option for you????
LBB - hope you have good run at Weston & hope Mrs LBB does as well x
Ran this am , only 3.38miles but it was all b****y hills , so I guess its good for me !!
Thinking of putting in for Stroud Half which is end of Oct, do you think that would be ok for me or too soon after Bristol?
Hope everyone else ok TTFN Nessie x
Stroud should not be a problem Nessie, although it's not a mass event so you may be running bits of the race with hardly anyone around you.
Having said that it is a great race and I would be doing it if not for Dublin.
Thanks LBB - should really enter as I'm not going to find anything closer as I'm only a few miles from Stroud -
When is Dublin? Are you going with family/running club/friends ? However you go all the best of luck for you - Hope you get PB - My grandfather was from Dublin & I have only been once when I was about 10 - so didn't get much clubbing done !!!!LOL
Hello Running Kev - fancy seeing you here! Looking forward to meeting you Saturday.
LLB - see you in Dublin maybe?
