BTW that blatent link to Adidas wasn't intentional - just happened (godamn marketeers)
FRC - yes, I think so - race every second or third parkrun. It becomes a moot point shortly anyway as I return to Saturday morning tutoring when the schools go back.
My knee pain has reduced greatly to the point of only having a momentary sensation on Thursday which was in fact with Ikle and Basey's son (I think that's the correct online nomenclature) in Dulwich park. 10k in 50 minutes for me. Friday "today" 8k in 38 minutes, no knee issues whatsoever.
DTF 1000 miles in a year is certainly great shakes in my circle. Just falling short of 500 myself this year as I also did in 2008; those being my highest year totals. Aiming for at least 750 next year.
By the way, the sooner we go metric for everything the better. 100 seconds in a minute, 100 seconds in an hour ... Oh, yes and 100 years in a lifetime as standard
GWS Ikle. Bummer about TRS but you are a brave soldier for getting there in the first place!
Did 10 hilly miles with some club mates today in the rain. And stopped at pubs along the way...
Final run of the year done - 7.7miles just nudges me over my target for 2012
Have great Great New Year celebrations everyone!
My highest miles ever this year 1232. Just back from my first proper Comrades training run. 3 big hills that I walked but happy with 25k in 2.17 (all runs KM from here). But main reason is
HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL
Great stuff MArtin and Dave. Glad they're letting you resched, Ikle. Scott - did that track help or hinder?!
At the moment I'm still in pjs, watching Olympic highlights with the kids. Sorry not to be outside today but did a long run yesterday so ok to rest today... although I need to do a swim.... And could do some core... Anyway, I have a sort of cough thing so need to see if a day off can get rid of it. I am not remotely ill, just cough about twice a day.
That'll be my challenge for this bout of marathon training - I have a biggish swim challenge two weeks after Brighton so have to keep the swimming up - and proper sessions in the pool, not mucking about in the sea once a week. Still. It's good cross training, eh?
FRC- Amazing time. Slowly ???????????????????????????????????????????? Good luck anyway
Quick post to say HAPPY NEW YEAR all!
Still running of sorts after 6 weeks of chest infection then head cold from early November to mid December, but luckily have been fit and healthy (touch wood) for whole of Christmas and New Year which is unusual for me. No races booked or planned but might have a look around for a 10K in February/March to get back in the saddle. Far too busy socially for any major training so sticking to what I said after VLM 2012 of 'no more Marathons'.
All the best for 2013 and whatever it holds - especially Smeags who is tying the knot next year - and hope to meet up with some/all of you again sometime in 2013.
Happy New Year when it comes. Just done my last run of 2012. Would like to say it will be a quiet night tonight but as we are hosting Hogmanay Party that may be difficult!!! Not sure I will be up in time for Park Run at 10 a.m. Roll on 2013.
