Minni v Dubai Dave
Minni/Carrot-well done running in such WINDY conditions but remember come VLM when the tall buildings and crowds shelter you from the wind and it will be still and calm,who will be ready to run in those conditions Anyway its too dangerous -who in their right mind runs in 65mph wind and by doing so miss the Liverpool v Arsenal game.?
Becs-why are drivers so inconsiderate? At least no harm was caused but that is why my OH bans me from excessive use of the bike
DD-Looks like youve got that marathon out of your legs.So the race tomorrow is more like a warm up for next week-good luck if we dont hear from you until after it. We expect more bling. My OH pretends she doesnt know when I am training for a race but she does know really. She's still trying to get me to give this all up for golf....wheres that rope
Weeble-my problem is that after a LR I feel I can reward myself and soon eat the 2-3000 calories burnt off.
Think I will swim lunchtime and do a recovery run tonight.
i didnt get out of the office till late yesterday, then an oppurtunity came up to meet with my best friend - so i sacked off the MLR and had three pints of the black stuff and good converssation
then this morning i got up extra early and did the 12 mile MLR this morning!
im pretty chuft with that as in the past i would have written the session off, i hate running in the morning but i felt i showed some good mental reserve.
recovery run later.
MrZ -thats one wayto carbo load for a MLR-nice one
Minni/ Carrot- nice tempost against the elements.
Becs- glad you're ok. I've given up on cycling to work in London after one too many near misses. Or maybe I started running, can't remember!
My week hasn't got any better. Was supposed to run into work but woke up to something that can only be described as howling wind and pissing rain. I don't normally give up easily but just couldn't face it. By the time I left the house the sun was shining. Grrr... No I have to run in the evening which means I had to cancel my hairdresser appointment.
MrZ- Well done for getting the MLR done in the morning
Well done Z. Mental strength indeed and you'll feel great (sort of) for the rest of the day now. Its these sessions that we would have ditched in the past that make all the difference on the start line of the marathon.
Brol - shame about missing the hairdresser. How are you feeling for the weekend?
2old - no. no. no ... don't go to golf.
245 miles for the month.
It looks like the TR24 is almost full, they say there are only a few places left. Any takers?
Oh heck. I'll see what my running club are wanting to do. Wouldn't mind a competitive ladies team....
Nice mileage Minni
Thanks for the congrats everyone!
I'm just popping in before heading to Toulouse for some serious boozing. Looks like Beckham has signed for PSG so fingers crossed he'll make his debut tomorrow night and I'll get to see him play one final time.
Good luck on Sunday Bro - it might be just what you need to shake the jetlag out.
Good luck to anyone else racing too, and for all your long runs.
Red-good rugby town-visited it to watch Sale Sharks play-great spot to watch the Six Nations this weekend with that serious boozing. Have fun
Minni-excellent months mileage, about the same total as I do a round of golf so I wont be going that way anytime soon
Bro- must be a disaster to miss the hairdresser, you'll look a mmess on the podium after the HM
2K swim done -muscles feel well and truly stretched
Red - Congrats and have a great weekend.
Brol - Don't push it, fine balance between stressing the body and doing too much. Take a day off if you need it.
Minni - Nice tempo run and very good monthly mileage.
Redders: good running yesterday and lovely news re. little redders #2 Freemers: great running in Chicago. Love the pics Mr Z: well done for squeezing that MLR in!Brilliant mileage, Minni! 217 miles for the month - what with a week off due to norovirus where I ran just 13 instead of 60 I'm reasonably happy.
Kiwi. wrote (see)
Redwood - congrats! Just saw on the news about Claire Squires - they've now removed products containing DMA from sale. No idea 2old about caffeine.....
not sure I would put random supplements into my body. Caffeine is fine - I have lots of that on a daily basis I will have to do my LSR before work tomorrow - 17 with 8 @ MP . All that in the pissing rain and gale force winds. Not much looking forward to it but needs must. Won't be getting any runs in this weekend as we are going away. I'll be knackered all day tomorrow I reckon Today was only a 3 mile recovery run at lunchtime. At least no rain
Evening. I'm out of the game. Going to take some more time out, do more swimming, cycling and core work. This running lark really isn't working for me. I shall defer my Spring Marathon place. The pressure really isn't helping me get back into it. I'll have 2 weeks completely off at least and then build up slowly.
