Minni v Dubai Dave
Good luck, racers Remember: don't be shit DD: ouch - that must have hurt. But you did a great swim . What 911 did you have? Mine was one of the last few 993s (a Targa - loved the glass roof!!) built in '96. My heart still bleeds coz I left it behind when we moved back home but since we downsized massively the fancy cars had to go AA: Enjoy San Fran - love the place. Great running routes down by the harbour front ... Hope weather is better where you are. Sun is out which is nice but we have a bitch of a westerly wind blowing. Just changed my planned route to one where I should have it more from the side than full frontal. 22 on the menu for today ...Went to the cinema yesterday and watched the most inspirational movie ever. It's called GOLD and it's a documentary made by a disabled German director about 3 outstanding Paralympians. Kurt Fearnley (he needs no introduction - what a hero), Kirsten Bruhns (German swimmer who had a motorbike accident age 22 that left her in a wheelchair) and blind Kenyan long distance runner Henry Waniyoke. I hope they are going to screen it in the UK - it really is worth watching.
Hi All - I have to admit that last night when i saw that it was going to take me 1:30 to drive to the Spitfire 20 in good traffic, I thought sod that. So I did the inaugural Enfield 20 mile race with a feed station every 4 miles.
Had to dig deep but managed to do my target plan. 1st 10 miles @ 8:22, 2nd 10 miles 7:44, for a total time of 2:40. And even better I didn't need to drive an hour and a half back home.
Sunday roast now.
Well done Oompa & Bro - hope everyone else had a good one.
Ant/oompa/2old - well done
Free - Well done on the sub 3:30
DD - Apparently Brownlee broke the course record, even after taking a wrong turn, that's younsters for you
Crikey! 22 miles later and so much has happened!Great racing Oompa, Ant, Freemers Bro: 10ks are a pain and very hard to do on lots of miles, so don't be too disheartened. Hope Minni has a good one too!My 22 miler was uneventful - kept the HR low (70% ish), av. pace 8:51 - very consistent splits despite the wind. For some reason it was more frontal than sideways no matter which way I ran 76.5 miles for the week -- my highest for a long time
xpost minni darn! Hope nothing serious due to the trapped nerve?
Bro I think that's a really positive run for this point in training. You'll probably nail a string of PBs after the marathon. Bet Mr Bro is thrilled for you...being safely behind him.Excellent race Freemers, so pleased for you. Impressive consistency. Have you got a cut back week planned soon? Remember to save your best efforts for VLM! Ant P - excellent pacing. Is 7.44 your target MP? Enjoy the roast. Oompa, sounds like you had a strong day too. That's a great speedy time, make sure you recover well. Waiting for your report Minni, hope it was just a case of focusing on the bigger picture. Nice long run Chick, I'm dead impressed with your mileage at the moment. Kiwi that all sounds positive, rehab seems to be working. 1.5k swimming this morning and off to the gym shortly for some time on the elliptical etc. No treadmill though, I'm a bit limpy after a 9 mile run and about 5 miles of walking yesterday. This is all compensating for an exceptionally nice dinner last night.
hope it was a dinner in very nice company, Weeble
