Minni v Dubai Dave
2old - I'm all for secret racing. Sometimes its nice just to take the pressure off.
Simon/2old - not really worth driving 12m for a parkrun?? I can't believe you just said that. If I have a race within 30m of me I think its on my doorstep. My nearest parkrun is 50 miles away. The race tomorrow is a 200m round trip and I even consider that as local!
Oompa - take it easy. I can't figure out why you're doing it if your calf is sore though.
Brol - tequila night sounds fab and I bet you don't have much of a hangover tomorrow. I once had a night on straight vodka and felt as fresh as a daisy the next day.
I'm hoping to test out my new spikes tomorrow on a jaunt with the dogs, now that I'm not racing.
FRC - Congrats on the PB.
Daren - Very impressive 5K.
Brol - Drinking a week before a mara nearly as bad as racing a 10K.
2old - would have been a pyramid if I had been on my own, but had a sneaking suspicion [unfounded as it turned out] that BA was lost!!
Good luck to all tomorrow's racers!!
Minni - I assume you are not using the spikes on the dogs??
Daren - what does that equate to for your spring marathon
Spoons - I am guessing it was a soft 2.02
Chinese takeaway and wine here. Not racing tomorrow due to breathing not right.
12 miles for a park run sounds close to me too!
FRC - great running
DD - love being in a fast peleton, sounds like a great ride
Spoons - good decision not to race so soon after a marathon...
Couldnt feel calf this morning, did a (very) slow short 3M test run ttoday and it felt OK during and when gardening after. Good news. Going to mtb tomorrow and run again Monday.
Driving 20M to my current local ykw in scotland does feel excessive when I've got 2 within 2 miles jog from me in London. I've heard that there may be a new one starting thats only 10M away - looking forward to it getting going!
Race well tomorrow those who are out there. Go speedy Cooks.
Darren: That's a speedy 5K particularly when you don't have the adrenaline rush of a race.
FRC: What can I say? Awesome run, 6 minutes is a huge chunk.
Not looking forward to having to travel miles to race when i get back to the UK though looking at the various websites the area I'm going back to looks fairly well covered with races, its not like living in Minni's wilderness.
I did fit in a 8K run yesterday, then drank quite a few ciders with friends, DD1 said it was a "fancy" bar b que, not really sure what he meant by that!
will swim a 2K set at lunch, run 10K + tonight. Today was the first truly cool morning of winter 17C when I climbed in the car to come to work.
A fancy BBQ? That means more than sausages and burgers I guess!
DD - will you move back to the south west?
DD - If you wear LOUD hawaiian shirts, maybe mstr DD thinks it's fancy dress
Spoons: Going to Mere on the Wiltshire / Dorset border.
DD: I have just entered 'Plain Crazy', a 12 mile off-road run on 27th December across parts of Salisbury Plain [including a tank graveyeard]. Right on your doorstep when you are back, so will expect to see you there next year!!
Have just entered 5 races, including 4 in 7 days after Christmas [Boxing day to New Year's Day], which should stop us from over-indulging too much
Come on racers!!
DD - handy for the North Dorset marathon.
My old stomping ground is just south of you, around Bridport, Dorchester, Sherbourne, Blandford, Crewkerne etc. nice part of the world. Except for the people who are all a bit backwards.....
