Gulp.That's some good mileage boys. I was chuffed when I ran two days in a row this week @ 3.5 miles each time!!
There are a couple of Halfs coming up that I can heartily recommend...Barns Green (Horsham) 30/09 and Badger (Dorking) (fabulous run) 07/10.I've got the NF Half on 23/09 but hopefully I'll make it to one or other or both of the above as well. Anyone for an ice cream afterwards?
Mileage? Don't know why, but I did a total of just over 100 in the two weeks ending last Saturday. Have knocked it back this week, starting the run in (ha ha) to Stockholm half on 15th.
I did Barns Half 3(?) years ago when the heavens opened before the start. Vera Lynn started us all off. Not one of my better runs.
I was there Eagle. The portaloo did a 'titanic' into the mud and all the men came sliding out. It was one of the funniest things I have seen in my entire life
I'm not fit. I'm fat, but definitely not fit.
Go granny go
I am fat. 'Time of life' is not agreeing with me either.
I appear to have spent today rotting and haven't achieved one single thing. Apart from hanging the washing out.
Had a really nice plod with RE this morning 17 miles in total.
One mega blister as a reward
Well done Tippy and Eagle. You boys are really cramming in the miles. Do you run non-stop or do you have walk breaks?I am getting worserer at wanting walk breaks as a result of running with Dawg and having to stop for her so often! When I'm on my own I've started expecting to stand still and gaze around me for a minute while I wait for no-one to catch up!
I did 4 miles BTW. 3 miles XC and 1 mile beach. Half a mile of that was through the surf as the tide wasn't low enough!!
Glorious sunset over Pompey this evening.
We do have breaks, mainly as I have to stop & mop and take on fluids. As the temperature comes down hopefully the frequency of stops will too. Managed 7 miles this morning on my way to the gym for body pump then Stretch & tone. Only one stop - when SOMEONE was hosing down his car and threatened to turn it on me as I was going past. He is one naughty boy.
What a naughty hose-person that was Eagle.
I had a mad thought about possibly entering the Minstead Stinger. Have you done that one Limper?
If I go quiet on here over the next few days it is because my pc is flakey (a bit like me really).
I'm looking forward to chasing Sweden's finest next Saturday .
Not heard of Minstead Stinger Eagle.Is it a half or a full next weekend?
Shame you haven't struck gold yet Speedy. Keep on trying!
Au contraire Tipster. Some things are definitely impossible. Hopefully Speedy becoming a millionaire is not one of them though!
It's rather gloomy here this morning. And chilly. Brrrrr.
Big Hug to keep Limper warm.
Minstead Stinger is not far from Lyndhurst Limper - near that end of the M27, Cadnam going into the Forest. Our foreign plod is a half mara.
Just got rained on when out at lunchtime, and my bank balance just took a battering - laptop purchase.
