thats the attitude Acoop!! sounds horrible!! well done for getting if over and done with
Good going ACoops. You are much tougher than me!
Anyone interested in high fat diet - god it's confusing if you start googling. All the different types of fat and everyone arguing about what's 'good' fat and what's 'bad' fat. I had a listen to the talk Marc did in Lanzarote and it made me feel much better. He's fine with red meat and bacon. Phew. Another guy there is doing really well on sausages for breakfast every day. If you listen to it, I'm the one banging on about exactly what sort of fat is what and asking about the wall and whether it exists.
It's about half way into episode 30 of Talk Ultra and lasts about 30 mins. Worth a listen. No preaching, no 'you should do this' or 'you shouldn't do that' just info.
Hope everyone's long runs go well tomorrow. I'll be in the sea. Will it EVER warm up???? I could cope with the sea being f***ing freezing if the air temp was a little kinder. Tomorrow's max temp in Bournemouth according to the BBC will be 2degC.
Tip top trotting everyone xx
I hope your 22 today is much better Ikle! It still looks cold, but less falling snow which was the main issue. Maybe avoid the Thames path.. I didn't think that through.. The Thames 100 is on at the moment though, poor poor people. I think I ran the first 10k of their route, it's just mud. Lots and lots of mud. Good luck in the sea AH.. amazing dedication. I'm putting off open water swimming until May, at least, and then I will be wearing my wetsuit.. Thanks SS
Your event sounds fab, Susan. Much the best kind of way to get a long run done.
Yes, the sea was cold, but it always is so same old same old. It's cold before you get in and cold in but then worse when you get out and start to shake with your body filling up with what feels like icy water. Really it's icy blood.
Have lolled about a bit this pm after dissapointing roast pork... only to realise I'm meant to be at the club awards evening in 20 mins... Bugger. Really wanted to do some more Sunday lolling.
Hope everyone else's runs went ok.
I like lolling.
Ran 21 miles (took off one mile due to rubbish fuelling - managed to miss out lunch entirely, and only had 4 beans left...) Horrid weather. But great route - via Olympic site (with Basey of course) then Canary Wharf, Limehouse Quay, ending at St Katherine's Docks (lovely place - so nice to show it to Basey!) and then back again with a few loops in the park near home. Look on FB should you want more detail. I am really dead now. It took me 3 hours 43 minutes ish. I felt sick at the end (see the not enough fuel part.) Weather horrid, but much better day for running than yesterday. No aches and pains as such.
Well done everybody else for various spectacular things - AH, Susan, et al.
oops - I got there at 7 ... but it started at 6. Still it means I'm home again nice and quick and back on the sofa.
Legs still feel absolutely dead after yesterday. STill have Skins on with my feet up.
Not going to run tomorrow. Will swim and hope my legs are back in time for the final 10 x 800 on Tuesday.
Night all xx
Look my lovely brother did this. and it proved that I managed to do a negative split in my monster run yesterday! Zippee! Feel normal today too. Just tired.
