not much snow really, more forecast for tonight, but I doubt whether it will be enough to close the schools (damn)
Late to this discussion, but getting up early this morning in the frost for a long run was just lovely. So so pretty. People do look at you like you're mad being out early in this weather but it's just so pretty and peaceful!
Out for about 6 mile this morning and a biting easterly wind to blow away the cobwebs. Loads of squaddies lurking in the woods and down in the valley where the Skyfall house was. Also.. 2 horses, 4 other runners, several dog walkers and a gold medal winning Paralympian with her dog Whisper!!
Morning, lots to catch up on I see.
4M Steadily done in the rain.
NW: 1 owl, 1 Kingsmill Van, 1 Beer Keg, 1 cyclist
Fresh snow falling in Kent with about an inch settled up where we are on the North Downs. Had roadies on so was a bit slippy and therefore just did a couple of miles. Might have another plod at lunchtime to get the old blood going for the week and a sports massage this evening. Not a soul in our village up at this hour
Morning peeps. I need to read back as well.
sounds like lots going on..
I got some joint ace as a freebee after a race, but never did use it. I might go and look for it!
Kate, I did a load of testing 2 years ago as part of a uni study. Different circumstances, i was one of the guinnea pigs, but I did benefit from free testing and analysis -BUT, I really struggled knowing how to make best use of the data and as a consequence prbably carried on doing all the wrong things!
Definitely agree about the marshalling comment - it's exhausting!
rest day for me
snow here, enough to make driving to work difficult but not enough for school to be closed, damn!! More expected this morning, so getting home might be very difficult, I hate this weather!
Out for an hour on the trails this morning but spent 20 minutes searching for the dog in the dark and snow. Reckon he must have got disorientated and run off in the wrong direction. He finally turned up after lots of shouting and whistling and standing around getting cold in shorts and t-shirt. Only just starting to warm up now!
Morning all - just 5 miles this morning as I'm going out for a run with my brother tonight, I think it will be his first training run pre Brighton marathon this year. Forgot to mention my DW yesterday, a very fancy looking chicken. Chris, shorts and t shirt, you are hardcore. PSC and MC, you have more snow than me, just a small dusting here.
Phew a busy weekend for all. I shifted my long run to Saturday, 15 miles all went to plan and pace, though the slow first 5 miles was hard keeping it slow enough. Sunday had a great lunch cooked by one of my girls and an afternoon of fun with my grandchildren, I'm sure your kids will do the same MC. Chris that was a full weekend, plenty of miles, one lot of them pretty late or the pubs shut early where you are, and shorts and t shirts is hard core. Good long run Kate and be intesting to see how the results you get from the tests can help you in the future. Valis hope all is well with you. MC and V4D good to get out first in the snow. Good 17 miler Adrian
Started the day today at 4am!
Just did a cheeky miler, shower and then travelled to work.
I find it easier to get up and go out running early, Sometimes when Im at work Im revved up for training all day.........Then I get in the car about 6pm to start my long traffic jam filled drive home, This puts me on a real downer, I end up getting home at 7.30 - 8.00pm and not training.
After a morning session however, I feel great and set for the day!!
Luke, agreed, it's a lot easier to get out and get it over and done with in the morning, I'm very good at talking myself out of an evening run. JF, I wish I had problems going slow enough, completely the opposite with me, I am going to start forcing myself into tempo runs again whilst there aren't any races on to try and speed me up.
Kate I think it is because it is unnaturally slow, for the first 5 miles of my long runs I am aiming to go 20% slower than MP. It just feels too slow to be able to run a good rythym at first.
And here's the little fella who had me freezing my nuts off for 20 minutes in the middle of nowhere this morning while he sorted out his navigational skills!
Yep, Thats exactly it, The more the day goes on the more excuses seem to come out! I do prefer the mornings tho, Its nice and quiet, No hassle, No cars!
Thanks for the welcome, Really enjoy this forum, Infact maybe too much, I should actually be out on site now but instead im in the office on the forum
He looks so innocent Chris!
He does look lost though
love the photo Chris - looks like he is wondering what all the fuss is about!
with the snow and the temperatures due to plument tonight I think it will be a turbo session in the morning
Hello all (SOC running I can do, but I'm finding it harder to get online to talk about it!).
Did a Parkrun Saturday, a new PB at 19:45, shaving 6 seconds off my previous. Then Sunday did 12 miles in the f-f-f-f-freezing cold - I think I need to shuffle my training schedule around a bit, find it quite hard sometimes to do a long run after going as all out as I can in a Saturday 5k.
4 mile recovery today in the snow, which was absolutely lovely. I've a meeting at a customer's Head Office tomorrow, so no running and what will no doubt be a nightmare drive from Norfol to Bracknel and back, so wish me luck!
