School holidays and cricket season have both had their impact on my running...and not for the good! I have managed to keep to my race a month but rather than running 5 days a week I am struggling to get 3 days in at the moment ( saying that I am doing classes...circuits and vew do board). I did take part in the Coast to coast event that is on going ( go to www.coastergb.co.uk if you are interested) and ran 14.7 miles from Walberswick to Aldeburgh.......lovely and a great thing to part of but I wouldn`t recommend running on pebble beaches..I am intending to do some more...probably late in sept or early october , I am awaiting confirmation from the site co-ordinator.
Yes, I am looking forward to New York....well I was until we had our bathrooms decorated ( long story so I won`t go into it but it has inevitably cost us more money than we planned so my New York fund is somewhat depleted! ). Running wise I really need to up the milage as halves and the coast to coast 15 is the furthest I have done since London but motivation for LSR is low..especially in the heat as I really don`t run so well in the heat....I get what I call heat rage!
Like you Sarah, I am entering the world of tri-athlon..my brother is 40 next year and so WE are doing a tri....not quite sure how that happened and not so sure it is wise at the age of 45 but I have my wetsuit now so there is no going back......I have tried swimming...we did the great Marlow river swim and Bournemouth pier to pier and may be doing the Brighton swim although they are talking of postponing that due to adverse weather. .....all this is because we are doing the Great North Swim.I`m afraid I haven`t tried cycling as I hate cycling...terrified of falling off!
Well better go..things to do...speak soon...keep on running as they say x
Oh well...that`ll be another No then......nice white jacket tho if a little big...thank goodness for New York!
I have a place for London.....total surprise.....and now I have booked Rome had to think long and hard about whether I can do it as there is only a few weeks between the two but after much thought and discussion I have decided I can do them both as long as I take it easy and am not trying to break any records....! realy really excited by the prospect at the moment but no doubt will be dreading it when the time comes!
The weather has really curbed my running habits of late...not because of the snow but more due to very icey roads and bitterly cold winds..thankfully I am still able to go to spin classes and swimming at my local gym and I have my Vew do board ( a balance board) so I am still active. I have a half marathon sunday which looking at the weather should still be on so I do really need to get out..Sadly my running partner is really struggling both physically and mentally at the moment and has pulled out of sunday and is seriously considering pulling out of London too ...I am doing my best to keep him going...any ideas on reclaiming your running mojo??????
Trust you are all well, have a great Christmas... x
