Minni v Dubai Dave
Good luck Carrot!
I have a hangover. Need to try and drag myself out for a run.
Good luck to all of those that are racing this weekend.
A hideous, cold, snowy eight miles from me this morning at 6.00. Started badly as my Garmin died within half a mile from home, and i'm hopeless at naked pacing, then matters got worse as last night's Fajitas obviously didn't agree with me and nearly "did a Paula" as stomach cramps got progressively worse, so i had to keep stopping and walking.
Carrot - good luck.
SS - Very good session.
Gazelle - Good luck for your 10k, any target?
Freemers - Very quick running. Good luck for your race tomorrow.
Chick - Nice tempo run, enjoy your 20k tomorrow.
Progressive x training for me this morning, 2.5 hours, first hour 12k, second hour 13k and last half hour 7k. Not the same as running but a decent aerobic workout.
AA - Nice long run, my calf is feeling OK so I'm going to try running on it Monday which will have given it 7 days rest from running. If that does n't go well I'll just x train myself to London.
Oompa - When you've got to go you've got to go, no bushes around?
Yes, Fajitas is no longer a viable pre-run fuel... Will just stick with a nice sensible Vindaloo from now on.
Nice long run AA
16 miles at 8.37 average - 20 secs per mile faster than the race last week so guess I have recovered a bit. Bitterly cold but no snow here. Trying to get rehydrated before heading to a neighbour's house [and large plasma screen] to 'Support Les Rosbifs' - bring a bottle, no cockerels!
Managed to stick to water last night, which is more than the students did, and turned down invites to accompany them to 'The Brass Pig' followed by 'Embargo' or 'Bunker' [whatever those all might be]. Was slightly annoyed at the way they all gasped when they saw me and said in tones of total astonishment - 'You look really nice'. I had to point out that it is generally better not to accompany compliments of that nature with looks of total disbelief..................
Anyway the good news is that Brol won't have to look out for me dossing in a doorway. The meal was predictably awful and dreadful for the night before a run - although only in terms of energy, not an Oompa-esque incident thank goodness.
Nice run AA, especially after last week.
Spoons: have you been out yet??????
Just got back O4S. 45 minutes at 10 min miling. All good
time to get back on the beer.....
Nice one Sarah. I love Belvoir. Do the marathon next year. 15 mile option is for wimps.
Happy Birthday Simon
