Hope they are gone by morning

I think that part of the tricky thing about spring marathons is that all the training is inevitably cold but the race maybe hot. Whatever happens I'm going to put on suncream...

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!

morning 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.....

WT that sounds truly bonkers but great fun. A marathon a day for that long is hardcore. I'm with you on navigation when I did off road fell event a couple of weeks ago I just followed everyone & hoped they were going the right way! Will. You run a marathon before the event?
19/03/2013 at 20:34

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... 


19/03/2013 at 21:34

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 

19/03/2013 at 21:55
You are still running Fido, that's all that counts
19/03/2013 at 21:59

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...

19/03/2013 at 22:04
Yes Dave riveted and want to see video evidence of your perfect non slappy style ..... Cue Umbongo with witty comment about Daves "hair" ...
19/03/2013 at 22:06
Meant to say great to see you WT earlier not AH not that it's not great to see AH it is and it specially was on Sunday but just then I meant WT as she just popped in ... I am going, don't worry. ....
19/03/2013 at 22:14

Maybe Dave, if you weren't so busy looking at the other runners you'd have run quicker
