Iron Min v Soup Dragon
I'm still here Spence. I haven't switched the light off yet, just been a bit busy this week. I've not entered Ashby yet but probably will if I can negotiate getting the car.
My plans for Ashby might have changed a little, my friend J has said I should go for a PB and not worry about us all staying together I'm not sure, I would like to put my new regime 4/30 to the test, so I might just go for it......having said that I wont be on my own as Far Far has said she'll come with me see how it all feels on the day
Well I think you should go for it Spence. Your running has become really consistent and you are doing so well it would be good to give yourself a real test. I've never done a race with other people, apart from starting off together and meeting up at the end. I llike to go at my own pace, be it taking it easy or going for a pb. I prefer it that way.
For some reason my running has gone absolutely rubbish. A 2 hour run on Sunday took me the total of 8.2 miles. I'm not too worried I'm sure it will come back and if it doesn't well I'll still go out and run anyway. Running to time not miles is great. On Sunday instead of sticking to the usual perimeter path at Bushy Park I went round the restored water garden and then doubled back to run round the ponds. It was great, just made it up as I went along.
Hurrah - another Ashby-ite. Soupy, if you could get somewhere near by train, I could pick you up & we could go the rest of the way together (assuming you can deal with my driving) Message me on FB and we can discuss if that's any help to you.
Can I come for pizza - really, I'll plan to drive myself up and everything. I'm housetrained (sort of) and like pizza a lot.
I keep forgetting about the hills!!
I've been very lucky in that Far Far & XB have sacrificed their times to get me round my maras & Ashby Far Far & I have done other distances together but it's been a case of see her on the start line and then watch her butt disappear from view !!
*sticks fingers in ears*
nooo, I don't want to know about hills!!!!! Had enough of them Sunday.
10 miles, 5 easy (1:01:06), 5 at MP (54:35) Felt gooooood out there.
Although I have got it into my head that MP is much faster than Easy, so the first half mile MP was down in the 10:30s, rather than over 11, where it ought to be.
Oh you all put me to shame. I should have done a run to work this morning but by the time I'd done faffing it was too late. I shall try again in the morning. Even Saffers got up and ran before work.
I've got to get my running better for September cos Ealing (my home town) is having a half marathon!! <bounce, bounce>
