and I wont be attempting sub 4 thats for sure - run in my comfort zone - will just see where that takes me on the day and see how the weather is.... better be COOL!!!
SORRY Ickle .. there I go again...
That's ok. Have this one on me. I have the glooms. I hate the Glooms. Night Night XOXOX
I think they might be gone. So much to do at work I think I might get up now, go for a run and then get into school early to get everything done. Well, ok probably not everything. Happy running and living, all!
susan I agree re pilates, I do tai chi a few times a week and I suffered no real aches and pains after my 20.Last night I ran so well on the track so I know my legs are not suffering from saturdays lsr.
I will probably do a 2 week taper frc.
ikle, run well and hope you feel heaps better after the run
rest day and family stuff for me, drive up to Cambridge with my brother today.
Aren't we good? Run done. 5.5 miles. Thanks Wabo. Onwards and upwards.
Wow you are all pushing some mileage out here - well done!
Susan - you are an absolute stalmart, I wish I could go and do the long runs that you do, you don't give yourself enough credit.
Wabo - you are doing absolutely fabulous!
Ikle - you've got the miles in the bank and now you just need the power of positive thinking, it's amazing what it can do.
AH - is there more info re the high fat diet thing, I've been looking at the paleo diet but it looks too hard for me, as I'm not very disciplined.
DtF - a PB is a PB regardless of how much - well done I love the slapping feet comment, I think I am guilty of that, I am a heavy runner apparently and also look like I need the toilet when I run according to some club friends at the weekend ....
In my world I have come up with the most spontaneous decision overnight with my friend. I have not run loads this year as I have nothing to aim for and for the first time in six years I haven't run a marathon - I underestimated how lazy it would make me and it's a bit odd having no target.
So me and my friend are going to run the Coast to Coast from St Bees to Robin Hood Bay in 7 days, 190 miles so it is a marathon a day. Due to the fact that both of us are extremely navigationally challenged this is going to be quite a challenge and so we are booked on a navigation course. Just sorted out all our accomodation which is scary as it means we have a specific mileage every day but I can't wait!! We're doing it in September so I can't do the Bullock but it's something new and unknown and an adventure - let's just hope I make it back.....
Oh my goodness WT - there you go again .. more mental than ever - thats why we love you and miss you - look forward to some great training posts with navigational comedy moments...way to go as the young people say ... and I dont object to being called a STALMART, bless you for noticing... truth is I dont do that many miles but dont telll the others, I am not sure they have noticed .. take this evening for instance .. was going to go to track - came home and ate two croissants .. before I had the pizza... AH was telling me about the whole diet thing and I knew I would not be able to do it...
great to see you AH .. and you Jovi btw...
Well done everyone, you're all running better then me but at least I am running!
IB - I recommend looking through old holiday photos, and sitting in a sauna several times a week (the latter builds heat acclimatisation as well as being Nice And Warm).
WT that sounds GREAT.
PS we went to see Divine Comedy a few times back in the day. I remember one gig where they started off by launching into the not-then-released 'Sweden' and the whole audience collectively sh@ themselves
WT - that sounds like a fantastic idea... I mean what better way to spend a few days in September.
Official 1 second PB - unofficial (Garmin) 4 seconds... ummm... choices choices..,.
Lovely club run tonight. Took it easy for 4 then sprinted home, legs felt very good.
Not only was I mildly amused by slappy feet during Fleet, since I went to a running form workshop the other week i spent quite a long time (about 1hr45 to be precise) watching peoples running styles - jeez... it's amazing how inefficient some people are - arms and legs all over the place, nodding heads, rise and fall, heel strikes etc etc...
I can tell your all really interested...
Maybe Dave, if you weren't so busy looking at the other runners you'd have run quicker
