Carrot - enjoy the Nationals in the snow!

Good luck Carrot!

I have a hangover. Need to try and drag myself out for a run. 

23/02/2013 at 11:16

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.

Carrot - good luck today.

Barry - how's the recovery coming along?

Freemers - all the best for tomorrow.

21 miles done for me ave 9 min miling. Last couple done @8s so the rest was a lot slower. All felt ok except my left hammy which I struggle with off and on. Was bitterly cold and I seemed to have snow in my face the entire way! Off to watch Reading v Wigan this afternoon

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?

Carrot good luck for the nationals!

S.S great session + how awesome someone at your gym thought you were an athlete, you go girl

Oompa, early run for a Saturday, guess you will be avoiding fajitas as night before food in future!

Barry how is the calf coming along?

AA - well done on a long run in the snow.

Good luck to tommorrow's racers, hope the weather isn't too abismal for you all!

The CNBA fairy has got me today - was snowing earlier + with windchill is about -5. So am staying indoors, feel slightly bad as the running was going well this week, but if I'm not training for a race I find it hard to get out in the cold! Got indoor spin to look forward to tmrw.
23/02/2013 at 13:25

Yes, Fajitas is no longer a viable pre-run fuel... Will just stick with a nice sensible Vindaloo from now on.

23/02/2013 at 13:35
Oompa - excellent. We live and learn hey! It's really not funny when the cramps kick in!

Kiwi - the most important thing is your on the come back trail.
23/02/2013 at 13:44
Better out than in Oompa.

Brrr, cold long run there AA.
23/02/2013 at 14:30

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??????

23/02/2013 at 17:33

Just got back O4S. 45 minutes at 10 min miling. All good

time to get back on the beer.....

23/02/2013 at 20:19
Oompa - I hope you found somewhere better than the gutter ala Paula.

Some great long runs, AA, O4S.

Spoons - Enjoy the beers.

Still not running, but I had a good excuse today as B'day. So sister and boyfriend came up from Leicester and we went to Jamie Oliver's in Liverpool for lunch. Great food and atmosphere, and not too many beers drunk.
X-training tomorrow, good luck to all the racers
23/02/2013 at 20:32
Gazelle and freemers good luck for tomorrow.

AA good 21 tempting to run in doors when the weather is like it has been today so well done for getting out there.

Oompa dont give up on the fraijitas just yet, ive safely had them the night before a run and a race.

Glad to hear your on the come back O4S and spoons.

Happy Birthday Simon, I hope that you enjoy the rest of your day. I went to jamie olivers in york two weeks ago and the atmosphere there was fabulous too. Food was nothing exciting but tasted good, and is probably safe before a run.

I did the Belvoir Challenge today and thoroughly enjoyed it. Most of it was off road through muddy fields and trail paths although there was a couple of small sections on road through little villages. I decided not to race it after the HM last week but pushed it more than I would a training run. My average pace was 8:51 min/mls for 14.6 miles which im delighted with as in parts I was ankle deep in mud and there were endless styles to climb over.
23/02/2013 at 20:46
Sarah - Well done on the Belvoir race, and just a week after your HM. You and Your mentor must be pleased with your progress.
23/02/2013 at 20:53
Simon - Happy birthday!! (((X)))

O4S - storming run today. You're certainly feeling better.

Spoons - glad you fitted your recovery run around your drinking intervals.

Sarah - you are a mean lean running machine!
23/02/2013 at 20:58

Nice one Sarah. I love Belvoir. Do the marathon next year. 15 mile option is for wimps. 

Happy Birthday Simon

23/02/2013 at 21:23
Great off road race Sarah, well done!

Happy Birthday Simon, sounds like you had a yummy meal out
24/02/2013 at 00:30
Good long runs O4S, and AA..(didn't you just do a 20?).

Great race Sarah.

Happy birthday Simon.

Good luck Gazelle. Sub 42?
