Minni v Dubai Dave
Well done for getting out there Chick
i've bought a turbo trainer. Just done 30 minutes. It's hard work!
Chick - how awful, glad you're feeling better now!
AA - 18 miles on the treadmill, that is dedication pure. I tried a 4 mile run at the gym last month and am ashamed to admit I lasted 2 miles, was too hot running inside and soo bored!
Lol about that Easyjet flight! Seriously Easyjet are a bunch of thieving so and sos - we had to change our flights from New Years as our passports were in the homeoffice and we couldn't fly and it cost us £35 per person per flight to change - a total of £140 to change the dates of a flight! Have vowed never to fly with them again! Ok rant over now
Flagging my run today, as we just have ice outside, no nice fluffy snow and I don't fancy slipping over.... sadly am feeling a little bit glad this week not to be marathon training. I did go out for 3 miles on Wednesday and felt great, that was before the paths got too badly iced up. Oh well, got spin to look forward to tomorrow.
Take care on those long runs guys.
AA - Good effort on the tready. i can empathise see below.
Chick - Well done for getting out so soon after the lurgy but look after youself.
I found Easyjet OK going to Florence(only time i've flown with them) they even checked in a bag free of charge, but I think that's because most people carry bags on and the overheads are rammed.
Checked the conditions out this morning when walking the dog but way too slippy so fortunately gym was open and 18 miles on the tready in 2hours 20, did n't find it too bad, just switch off and don't look at the distance completed until the albums finished on the MP3 player by which time I'm over halfway, last 5 at MP.
If any of you think Easyjet are thieving so and sos don't ever contemplate flying Ryanair!! Actually I fly very frequently on Easyjet and have rarely been late, never cancelled and for under £50 return to Belfast I won't complain.
Our Ultra, meant to be tomorrow, has been cancelled so we got out and did 19 miles in the snow and ice. I would hesitate to say it was a run - more of a combination run / walk / slide and at one point crawl [where I couldn't get any grip at all on a minor road going uphill]. Bliddy cold............................Will try to do more than 11 miles tomorrow so at least overall I will have exceeded the ultra mileage.
Fortunately I don't have access to a treadmill - I just can't bear the heat and stuffiness of running in a gym, even if they do have air con.
Thats the one Sarah!! On the odd occasion that they do manage to arrive on time they play a fanfare and announce 'Another ontime arrival with Ryanair' whereupon the passengers are supposed to applaud loudly [I think]. Luckily they abandoned the Belfast route when Belfast airport refused to pay for the privelege of having them annoy all their customers..
I didn't realise BM had also been cancelled - perhaps Minni arranged it so that you couldn't beat her
O4S I'd already decided to claim I was blocked in and couldn't make it, just in case.....
I decided on a duration run today considering the weather. 3 hours off road. The snow was beautiful but knee deep in places. Ended up with 17 miles and now have a snow burnt face!
I've just walked to the Chinese takeaway. Nearly slipped over several times. The road and pavement is like a sheet of glass. No way could you run on it.
never flown easy jet myself. The ex wife was scared of flying so all our holidays were in England.
Simon - running / walking is tricky, cycling would be suicidal!!
I had entered Folksworth 15 today (cancelled) although I'm not sure if I was fit enough to run it. With Brass Monkey cancelled too, are they rescheduling, refunding, forgetting about it and keeping the cash?
Turn up and pick up your t-shirt?
Your idea sounds sensible. Folksworth are trying to reschedule.
Winter Tanners are offering partial refunds - it only cost £4!! They can't reschedule as their next 30 mile event is only 3 weeks away. Trouble is 90% of people entered online so about £1 of the entry fee has already been taken by the online company, and even more would go if they had to refund.
Just getting the waterproof socks out for another epic...................
