Minni v Dubai Dave
Brol - tell him that all runners look like that! Not all look as though they're at top effort from mile 2 of the marathon though.
Minni - Yes, at least during this phase. No need for skype....
Gazelle - yeah parkrun on sat is the plan, I seem to have persuaded a few from my running club to come down as well, so we will be mob-handed. I must admit that sub 20 feels like it will be a push, but nothing ventured, nothing gained. Should end up with a PB at the very least. Best of luck in your 10K. Shame that the conditions this weekend are expected to be wetter and windier.
lol! If I wasn't on my work computer I'd have so much fun with this!!
haha, all these reviews of MyASICS is making me laugh (although im sure I shouldnt be saying this with less than 24 hours to go until we find out whose through).
Thankyou 2Old, a 3:14 marathon would be great, but I agree, I need to get alot more LSR in. Im fine at the shorter half marathon distance as that what I have been concentrating on up until now. Despite that I am at a much better starting point this year than I was last year, going into training for VLM . Forgot to say, of course I will speak to you and stick around. This is one of my favourite threads
Thankyou DDits very reassuring that I can be running longer for my LSR, I just wish that I had spoken to you all at the beginning of summer now. Your comment made me laugh "not a 110%" but you have still being swimming, cycling and running twice, one of those sessions being speed work in the last 2 days....your def dedictated!
Spoons I thought I had finished all my xmas shopping but my dads just given me the task of getting all my mums presents from him (again)!
Brolish thankyou with regards to your warm up/cool down advice, ive taken note and will do this tomorrow.
1:30 is great Minni hope we have better condititions than last year to help us on our way. Was looking at some of the photos from previous years...I cant believe there are people running in short shorts and vests, it must be soooooo cold!
Mr Zuvai where do you live, it looks gorgeous?
I ran in shorts and vest Sarah.
Some great pictures and some worrying pictures too.
AA - Come and join the fun. I wasn't confident with the swim or ride but a couple of months in the pool and I'm sure I'll be able to do it now. Get your cleats on and have a go, if you fall off because of them it will only be when your stationary it doesn't hurt that much.
I-pods are the same as most things if use at the right time in the right way then not a problem, its not the device is users and there choices that matter.
Moragh- it most certainly beats the mental image I had.
Reminds me of when my friends were all sure DD was a fat lorry driver who pulled into Watford Gap to dish out instructions.....
Hi guys! Bogged down at work . Just skimmed over the the last 3 pages. My, but you lot are busy!! Where do these new emoticons come from?? They are great!!Right, boss is calling me again ... Managed 11.2 miles this morning. Had to turn back after a mile or so to put my Yaktrax on. Yesterday's snow melted, then froze and more snow came down overnight. Very slippery. OK with the Yaktrax though. Love 'em!
Jeez. How many posts and new people, welcome to 3-4.
Simon hope the hip is better. a few days in sauna, jacuzzi, rest. Becsa, same with the head.. and Mr Zuvai too.
2old, upload photos to google picasa is easiest then direct link it. See below.Minni & Sarah, Facebook takes a lower res version of your photos so same idea, copy the links from there.
kfc, your plan is similar to what I did Jan-May, 3 runs, my Xtrain is usually 2 circuits or one plus a strength/ speed weights session much less impact. More than 1x 20 milers surely? Aiming for 5-7 this year.
O4S, super time considering you're meant to be ill. nutter! BA funny, bedroom in freezing temperatures?
PaulSamcymru - Wrexham is only 30 minutes away, we ran in Moel Famau last week, do you run in the Borders league - Christleton one this Sunday?
Scuba, Glad the op went well. We will have teams for Thunder Run not if! Brol maybe jogging with Mr Brol though allegedly...
Fit Running Cat is very happy this week, couldn't ever replace our eldest cat of 17 years we lost in April , but we have adopted a new one so back to 3 in the house again. Black & white little boy, huge paws, a bit of tuxedo front and batman sort of face, lovely and very friendly... just we were stuck on a name, now chosen.
Say hello to Stanley! and here.
Oh, I saw this and thought of some people on this thread for some reason...
Love it FRC!
Can you lot stop posting so much please? I can't keep up
FRC, i love it....I wonder if I can prescribe this!
Minni your much braver than me, although once im warmed up im usually ok, its just the standing at the start line that I struggle with!
No running for me today....just about to start my third clinic of the day. Hopefully finish by 9 though so aiming to do a few lengths in the pool on my way home.
Sarah - any news yet??
Freemers - My MP miles are just at my current MP, not what I hope it to be in April.
Mr Minni told me last night that he as thinking of getting me a strength and conditioning programme for my Christmas. A 6 week course - 6 hours per week. He'd seen it on the shopping channel! I asked when exactly I'd get time to do this and he reckoned I could just fit it in. When I then said I was going to go on turbo for an hour his face dropped and immediately started complaining that I'm always doing something. I rest my case!
