Well done James - running in foul weather is character building and makes you appreciate the fine weather when we get it! Stormy here also but dry.Did my tempo run as planned after all tonight - 1 mile warm up, 5 mile tempo pace .... 8 m/mls avg pace for the 6 miles... felt pretty lousy & sluggish tbh.. pesky manflu!
Was very windy out there tonight. At one point when running straight into a very strong headwind it felt as if I was not moving forward. Tempo run done for thsi week. Not sure which I hate more. Slushy underfoot conditions or strong blustery wind with rain driving into my face
Just call it hydration Will
Carl what you hate more than snow, ice, wind & rain is not getting out at all & missing a run!
Ricky - you are spot on.
Don't tell Carter, but it's another rest day for me today...as it's my birthday....an excuse to eat cake, and a reason to run tomorrow!
Ha ha Carter!!! 57 is a fair way off thank you!! Mind you, at least then I'll be in a slower age category!!
Happy Birthday Rachel - another year nearer the pension!
Hill session for me tonight - dry & little wind which made a change.Was feeling rotten all day and my cold has become a little chesty - was close to binning tonights session. Went out anyway and did it at a slightly lower intensity... actually felt much better when I got back in so glad I pushed on with it.7 miler tomorrow night.
Happy birthday Rachel.
Well done everyone for getting out. I got home from work at 9pm tonight and after saying goodnight to the wee ones went out for an 8.5MLR. I must be mad.
Just what I was thinking, Carl
If it was me I'd go to bed and get up early to fit that it, but I think we've already established you're a night owl. If that nighttime ironman wasn't for you, how about the Midnight Sun marathon in Norway?
Good advice from Dd there Ricky. Obviously rest now, and don't try anything too long on Sunday if there's any sign of it left. Emphasis on the S of LSR, and don't go out if you're going to spend three hours cold and wet. You can set yourself back if you try too much too soon after illness.
This is meant to be a picture of a night owl but I cannot work out how to copy the image into this text box.
15 miles today, Folkesworth 15 next week, then Bramley 20 week after, if I don't go sub 4 this time I'll cry...
