Ikle - if you're free for a tequila or two then that would be excellent!
Abingdon, Luton, Chester... choices choices
Scott - sounds fine to me - in fact ideal, as long as you do something else in between .
Great training tonight. Bloody cold, but at least dry. I felt wheezy beforehand (still blaming Mexico City smog). Stormed around just under 5 miles at ave. 7.20 pace (splits 7.43 7.29 7.04 7.15 7.17)
6th Feb. I hope to be there.
Thanks FRC for good advice. I did not run today. And going to bed late (12:15 am) SO not a good idea. I basically wept for a great portion of the day. In that 'All have my family have been slain' type way that was really not warranted over having to resend a form.
Basey is applying to be a senior fellow, I do believe. He's a sort of lecturer type. Gymnast turned academic Doctor-type. There can't be that many of them huh? He says he went well.
Well done, D the F. I wish I could run that fast.
I have to practise new running style periodically. Haven't had time frame conversation yet, but next session (week after next) is the last one.
Night Night All. Lots of love.
There you go Scott, I knew someone would have a sensible answer!
And of course there are no medals for a midweek run but is nice to appreciate your fitness and improvement...
Woken up to day with a rather scratchy throat - typical I suppose...
I am back and a bit bigger, chilled and slightly sad, but iverall very happy!
I put o n 4lbs, which considering I hardly managed to run was not too bad, so weigh in is 10st 6lb, back to it now
Hope you are all well, will try catch up as I go along.
Well as you can all imagine not a lot of running actually did happen in Peru, there was 4 miles in Lima along the coastline, 1.5 miles on a beach in shoes, to the right was no go area and to the left the tide was in! Finally a 2 mile barefoot on the beach which left my achilles somewhat sore, and a policeman stopped me at the no go point (I knew about it and was turing anyway) pointed to Garmin told me peligroso (dangerous) and promptly turned me round anyway! I saw vultures pelicans, huge gulls, all manner of dead things on the beach and tried goat, ate cerviche, chucharron and Bonito - the last I did not like!
FRC - My weekday runs tend to be more like races - particularly when there's a couple of the guys there who seem to egg each other on a bit! I don't do many races anyway, so it's my chance to test myself a bit - last night was actually the fastest training run I've done at the club since joining a year ago
Wabo - sounds great! Seen a few pics on FB too... looks like a great trip away. Is Bonito a kind of fish? What was it like?
I had a few weird things in Mexico. One of the dish option from a buffet my translator said was merely "meat" in sauce. He did add that it was a sherry sauce but didn't elaborate on the meat bit. I had it anyway and very nice it was too. Mystery meats are always fun aren't they... Horse, donkey... who knows...
looks like the weekend is going to get warmer and wetter in London, so i expect to get pissed on during my 16mi Sunday run :-\
Nice picture........not been on as busy looking for work been made redundant so not happy. Sleep who needs that,,,,,,might be a long run this weekend.
Scott was going to say something similar to FRC. How about somehow joining your friend for the second half of his run? He'll be flagging, you'll be fresh and you can help him along. Perhaps he can do 2 x 10 mile laps.
Getting excited for the Cold Water Swimming CHamps tomorrow. It was featured on the One Show yesterday (good week for the One Show, eh, Jovi?). Iwan Thomas went in - but not for very long. Having said that, I only have to do 60m so I won't be in very long either. Looks like being a sunny day which will make the water seem much more friendly.
bonito is a sea fish, it was dark, some parts tasted a bit like rock which I like but some was just not nice! Ceviche is a fish dish where the fish is not cooked so to speak but soaked in their very strong lemons, green look like limes and that sort of cooks it. Its delicious! Chucharron is also a fish dish, can be mixed or in my case just white fish, sort of battered, it was lovely.
blimey hen cold water champs sounds tough!
yep frc, spot on feel good is immense at the moment so sod the lbs!
