Minni v Dubai Dave
Well done to Mr Kiwi on his first parkrun! This is where it all starts....
Glyn that must have been really scary, good thinking to pull a judo move on the little scumbag.
2old hope you've logged that complaint.
Hope the tightness is just the usual post-run aches Spoons. XC today sounds cold, waist deep water!!
Tried out my XC spikes today at a relay race! Approximately 3K all on grass. The spikes felt great, I'm sure they make you go faster. Was a bit nervous about the whole relay thing, didn't want to let my team down after all! Really enjoyed it though, I'll be back for more relay action.
Great runs all round Team!
I only did 12 miles today as I have 3 x 30 mile and 1 x 20 mile race planned over the next 5 weeks and thought it might be better to err on the side of caution. Waited until the thermometer rose to zero before heading off. 1 mile w-up, 4 miles HMP then long steep hill, 3 mile PMP, second steep hill and 2 mile cd. Average 8.45mm but huge differences due to the hills and dodging Sunday strollers in the last 2 miles.
I have been bitten at least 6 times by various dogs - twice while running, twice while actually on the bike cycling and twice while delivering neighbourhood watch newsletters. I was attacked by an Alsatian when I was about 3 years old and, although I have no memory of it, I have been afraid of dogs ever since. Mr O4S really goes for dog owners who don't control their animals if I am around [Ahhhhh!!] He was once badly bitten when out running wih me and he booted the dog into the middle of the next week [it was on a lead]. Police and hospital involved, but when we happened to see the same dog [still on lead] some time later it took one look at Mr O4S and legged it in the opposite direction
2old: Log the complaint, you might not be the first!!
Spoons: fingers crossed it is just temporary.
Kiwi: congrats to Mr Kiwi, hope your recovery continues slow and steady.
Carrot and AA: Great results!!
Chick: sounds chilly!!
Double run today (3 am + 2.5 pm) to get the 7 runs logged for Jantastic.
Name and Shame list:
Spoons - 3 runs to logAnt - 2 runs to logAA - 2 runs to logSarah - 1 run to logSimon - 1 " "Cooks - 1 " "Weeble - 1 " "Zuvia - 1 " "
I know you've been all out there so don't forget to log them tomorrow. We're on page 3 ffs. Everyone will be laughing at us....
3 AM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Are you stark raving mad?
No, no, no, 3 miles (am) and 2.5 miles (pm). I am mad but not raving mad! Lol!
Phew, i thought that you had some vampire blood in you and couldn't bear daylight?
Logged my 2 runs. Only 67%. I'm sorry. I've let the team down.
I was checking the rules for Jantastical as could n't understand why some Teams had max points but all runners had n't completed all runs. Rules state top75% of team to count towards avg to allow for injuries so that's 16.5(16) runners for us.
Chick - Nice long run. Felt the cold on my breath this morning when I first set off but OK after a mile or so.
Alright crew, just back from throwing my money down the drain watching Arsenal lose yet again.
But I did get my 16 miler in this morning. Lovely conditions down here. Nice and crisp and the sun even came out to warm my cockles. It was really a run of 2 halves. The first 13 miles were fab, and the last 3 were a complete drag! All completed though @ 8:33 m/m
Minni - bit early for a name and shame list - save that for monday night I've logged all my runs you'll be pleased to hear.
And still on the wagon
I've logged the final run Minni, call off the dogs.
Carl March gets complicated as you have to predict a race time and no one could work out the crazy formula they used to award points. I'm still sore at being about 40 seconds out for a ten mile and getting a middling score.
Simon for effort, I think the duathlon should count as two runs, but I don't make the rules.
KFC great to see you running long.
Spoons this tightness that may or may not have been in your head, did this develop before the prospect of plunging into icy rivers was put out there?
O4S - three 30 mile races?!
Relaying sounds fun Carrot. I didn't sign up to the club I tried out in the end as I knew I'd be moving again soon, but I really do mean to get more involved in a club when I'm settled.
Weeble - I didn't go near the rivers. That was my crazy GF. I was watching (laughing) with hat, coat and gloves on.
Simon - re the PF, are you regiously massaging your foot with a golf ball. Find the thickened tissue and break it down with a rotating motion. That's what was recommended to me and it works. Note that the pain source and the scar tissue may be in the same place.
Spoons re core strength. I was reading that it is essential to work on your hip muscles to building running related core strength. Dunno if you are doing that as well. I can upload a pic of some of the exercises if you are interested.
