Sparkly bridget v Len2
I returned my 1st Gen nano last week after I heard they were given back 6th Gen. Now I sit under the letterbox every morning waiting for it to arrive
Good to hear the calfs are holding up Len
I was just enjoying catching up and reading about bouncy tracks and things and now its gone on the gobbledigook on nanos and gens.
But well done to Schmunks for not making a list (yet).
Doing good Len
<goes back to the sofa and pringles>
Those really steep but short bits can be killers, don't blame you for walking them. When I run along the canal I hate when I have to change sides because the bridges are so humped.
It doesn't look too windy here but that is judged by looking out at the garden, I may change my opinion when I get out there! Hopefully if it is windy you'll have the wind behind you for some of it.
8 miles on a track? ooo that sounds boring. Len - is there an out and back route you could do then you have the wind blowing in your favour half the time? Set off against the wind and let it blow back again on the way home.
And luckilly the VLM has no hills at all.
No rugby boys either though.
Have you got a lap counter or are you going to run for a set time instead?
Not sure if you've gone yet but the track does sound like a reasonable alternative if you have the rugby boys to ogle I'll confess to having run a track marathon (105 and a bit laps) and put my music on around 10 miles as I realised I was bored.
Soupy - not sure if Len has a Garmin as that will remove the need to count laps
We have wind here too judging by the way the tree out the back is waving around. I actually quite enjoy running against it as long as I know I'll be turning a corner reasonably soon. Mick (and Phil of course) like to remind me of when I overtook them and several others going into a headwind at the Robin Hood marathon.
Ah - silly me I forget about garmins cos I've dumped mine for now. Thanks Bridget, I'll go back to my sofa.
Don't know how you managed a track marathon - blimey!
Not sure I'll ever do another one
Im getting a bit worried about the darkening clouds here, may take a waterproof with me
Brilliant stuff Len! Now you can enjoy your rest day
My legs were even but I got aches where I hadn't had aches before which was probably due to the unchanging surface
I got my long run done without getting wet (amazing what carrying a waterproof can do) and also had that 'I'm going nowhere fast' feeling at times. Off to doze in the bath now
