A great prize & challenge
My crazy working continues so this is the quickest of check ins.
Just wanted to wish your daughter a speedy recovery Tigger - sounds awful what she's been through.
RRR - good to see the pink one back here! You're welcome to share as many details here as you like - always enjoy reading about your antics!
Jen - that was the sprint Tri Mrs Malcs did last year. Good to hear you're keeping up with your supporter training
Sarah - great climbing. Nice long run too. I wanted to do 10 but had to cut it short to 7.5. Just didn't have time. Hopefully next week things will return to normal here!
DS2 - nice pace! Driving lessons - OMG! Dreading that day. No patience.
Right - better go to freakin bed.
Hey Malcs - good to hear from you. Have you managed any running this past couple of weeks?
A nice steady 5 at 7:42mm this morning. Felt very comfortable. Beginning to focus on October marathon now. It looks like a number of us will be running very similar times. I'm expecting Sarah to take over my mantle as fastest on this thread - if not one or two others! I shall do my best to stay up there and finding that very motivating!
tigger - how is your daughter?
Hey Malcs, hope work settling down for you.
DS, love the thought of 7.42 as steady I ran this eve with club n got dragged sub 8.00 for a mile! I was dying, and I ache now.
RRR look out for them new forest ponies, they are evil!
Sarah, who does the driving for your challenge? do you think you'll catch some sleep en route? Look forward to seeing photos.
Tigger, what's the update on your daughter?
Reg,Clive, Steve, anyone else out there. **wave**
Jen - how cool is it to see a mile showing as completed in 7:xx. I always get a kick out of running a quicker than normal mile.
it's meant to hurt - that's how we get fitter. Nice going! Next week 2 miles at sub 8 and so on!!!
I I did feel a little thrill looking at my watch! never seen a 7 before!
Make it a habit now Jen!
Haha, I love it jen. We have my friends father driving for us and then there are two other members of the club helping if needs be. They are not going to do all three mountains just one or two. My friends dad needs a hip replacement so isnt very active at the moment but he still likes to take part if he can. I will try and sleep whilst they are driving but im not very good at sleeping the best of times and think that I will struggle. On the way to kenya, despite having a reclining chair, ear plugs, alcohol, codiene and it being through the night I didnt catch even one minute.
Malcs you was up at 2:23, OMG you poor thing, I was about to complain about my awfully busy 12.5 hour shift but im not going to bother now! Well done for getting 7.5 miles in.
DS2 I think your safe for the moment...not sure if I wiould call 7:42 min/mls steady for me just yet either!
Today I just went on the exercise bike for 30 mins after work before they closed the gym...made a nice change and hopefully the (small amount of) cross training will help my running
Morning Malcs , as we now have a team of 8 for TR24, we are all wondering about when you want the entry fee paying and how much it is?
Hi all - launch day tomorrow so at least I know there will be an end to my pain.
Sarah - yes, ended up in bed at 3am on Tuesday. Lay awake for half an hour too as my head was buzzing.
However, last night it was daylight when I eventually made it to bed. Just after 5am. Quick but crap hours sleep or so then up to do the school run.
Good TR24 training
I still think I have it way easier than you and Clive as this is fairly rare for me.
Re. TR24 it was 248 + 5.50 admin. I'm happy to have it whenever. If it's easier to wait until the day then that's fine. Otherwise I can email my bank details.
Right - final push...
PS. great speed sesh btw. I want to do some of those this time round. Not sure I'd make that speed though!
