Minni v Dubai Dave
Just popping in to say hello and to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and New Year.
I have been away visiting family since Wednesday and have been naughty and not ran for the last 3 days Will get back on track tomorrow before our 10 guests arrive(Will be staying for 4 days!).
I'm looking forward to Jantastic, knowing that if I don't go for a run Minni will be shouting at me which should be enough to get me out there
Is anyone racing between now and the new year?
Yep two 3-30 threads is confusing and I don;t have time to read two, so your safe Minni I won't be over there to make sure your talking sense, which of course you will be having been mentored by me
Simon: I know its such a drag when the chauffeur can't find an address, I did actually have a driver for a year when i worked in Abu Dhabi but lived in Dubai, sadly when that contract ended i had to start driving myself again.
Cycled long before dawn on a cool foggy morning, another 90 mins in the bank, will run at lunchtime as not doing club night on Christmas eve.
Happy Christmas to you all
So basically Minni can say whatever rubbish she likes as no one will be reading it anyway.....
Actually Spoons is sounding quite professional on his thread (a side we don't see much of on here ) I think I might just cut and paste.....
kfc - see you there!
DD - I've had good teachers. I think you got something out of it too. When we first met you hardly drank and went to bed at 9am every night. Now you're always hammered!
For for 18m now. I is marathon training!
Minni - No i did n't, thought it was all a bit slow and then . 18 miles for your first mara training run, nice easy start .
I prefer not to think of it as the first day of marathon training as being an 18-miler - more the day before marathon training starts being a lot lighter than normal!
It is like the end of the world down here - black as your boot [unless you are a green wellie sort of person] and raining like it was the second great flood. Forecast for the rest of the week is horrendous and I'm not sure if my off-road race on Thursday will be cancelled. Glad we got a reasonable run in yesterday as I don't fancy going out in this.
AA: likewise glad our house is on top of a hill!
I'm another you can only just about manage to keep up with one thread, so no stalking Minni from my end.
KFC / Simon: Part of our Christmas break is always spent with a map of the world planning our next trip - I'll do some research!!
Happy Christmas Eve everyone
Great to see Minni as a mentor...I had a sneaky feeling she would be one...Sarah - you are in good hands
I've had a couple of good days running - 8 miles on Saturday including 6 @ 7.20 pace, so a nice tempo run. Then 18.7 LSR yesterday....meant to be 18 but slightly misjudged the distance. Very windy and felt like hard work at times, but I'm pleased to get that distance in. Off to do a few miles recovery soon.
I'm thinking about going to run the YKW tomorrow as they have an extra one on Christmas Day. I'm not in the mood to race it, so might just test out how good I am at sticking to my planned marathon pace, which would be 7.30's. So I need to come in at just under 23.30 I think to get that right. I'll do a few miles w/u first to get into the pace. Then I can feel nice and good before I come back to stuff my face with food for the rest of the day
I'm on 1655 miles for the year so far - should make it to 1700 with a week to go. Not as far as some, but it is the most I've ever done in a year. Plus the first three months were pretty light, so I can't really complain.
Sarah: Clevedon is the run - not too far from us provided there is no flooding en route. The race on 27th is on Salisbury Plain [off road] and is looking less promising
Just had a cloudburst here - water lying in deep pools on the grass, on the patio, road etc. I need to get out and get some milk but can't face it at the moment. Our plans for walking tomorrow will need to have a revised route......................
