AH - Malta 2012 - 4:08 : Malta 2013 - 5h dead - menopausal symptoms hit me + my running like a 2 by 4.
Itching, terrible unhappiness, sleep issues, waking in pools of sweat and having to shuffle down the bed to avoid the horrid damp patch, and stuff which doesn't bear repeating besides. Ugh.
That didn't help but I started to have real trouble getting through my long runs which I *never* have before. The drugs really help but we'll see how the running goes on Sunday
Ickle have a super super day and just enjoy it and a belated happy birthday. Why not do your 1000th mile with your new hubby as a belated wedding present?
ACoops we must get together when our mad lives calm down a fraction!
Jovi - is that one of the runs the Brownlees mention in their biog? They do mention runs where the prize is loads of chocolate.
Martin - wish I could go too but I owe the OH bigtime for years of top class bagcarrying and I couldn't bear to see him disappointed by missing one of his favourite races.
FRC enjoy the seminars and courses.
WTF - scary I guess but it will probably go well in the long run and you'll be glad you went for it. That said feel free to come on here and go I'M SO TIRED before falling asleep on the keyboard. You won't have time for anything more!!!
No I dont FRC! I pick out the specially bonkers ones ... Every few months ... If that !
Watch out for storms
Blimey .. Where is everyone?
I'm lurking! just back in from a 10 mile recce run of next weeks race. hills, mud, wind, rain, sun - it was like 4 seasons in one day - one minute it was howling a gale and almost hail like rain, the next the sun came out and we were running in vest tops - lots of rainbows and some stunnign views so a great run. Very very steady pace which was great.
Ikle - congratulations on the PB - am sure you'll crack those extra four seconds soon.
Fido - yes, I htink it probably is - although there is also an Easter race series around here where t the post race celebraitons the race organiser throws out easter eggs into the crowd so it could be that one too as that is very local to where the Brownlees live.
Ikle: Hope you're having an amazing time!
Fido - xx
Congratulations to our Ikle she looks so pretty and happy in the Facebook pics.
Just under 4:19 at Frankfurt which is a relief as that's my Pen F sorted for Comrades. Hard work though. But best time I've done in 20 months!
There was a bloke getting chest compressions and oxygen that we passed in the early section - nothing on the news but that sort of thing rarely goes well (though people did remind me about Salazar and Muamba ). Very sobering.
Frankfurt OK but Abo-flat not Berlin or Dutch flat.
Hello, I freqented this thread leading up to the Manchester 2013 marathon, which, for reasons I won't bother going into now became for me, the Milton Keynes 2013 marathon.
Frustratingly I missed my target for a sub 4:00 time by 19 minutes, which I was gutted by, but it was still a 49 minute PB, so progress for me. I'm going to enter the 2014 Manchester marathon and have another crack and sub4, so will be checking in here with you good people, and taking some encouragement from your efforts, and occasionally updating you on my own.
After a bit of an injury layoff this summer, I'm back to running about 30 miles per week. I'm going to be following an 18 week training plan for manchester, so have another 5 weeks to get into shape before that starts, which i'm doing by getting in some slow miles, as well as cycling most days to/from work.
Hello AgentGinger good to see you. Congrats on your latest Mara .. Any Mara medal is a great medal.
Fido ... Did not know you were doing Frankfurt ... Need to focus on a spring Mara .. What is there apart from London and Brighton that may still have some spaces???? Any ideas? I need some inspiration......
FIDO- Where did that come from. Not happy now Im going to have to go back Only kiding saw a lot of posts from you on the thread but did not realise you were going back.
Susan- Stratford upon avon is good. 2 laps and 1 hill but we made a weekend of it
Is it around the same sort of time? Thanks Martin will have a look
Thanks for that FRC - will take a butchers.
Susan - I was thinking Manchester. For you I mean, not me.
When is it though .. Earlier the better .. You know me and heat!!
Yes Fabo Wabo and Fantido Fido !! Awesome running.
and PB MRS IKLE you are all awesome.. Feel like it's been a while since I did any thing amazing, if ever.
Winter blues, mid life crisis, who knows what ... Laugh a minute round mine
Ah, thanks FRC will look into that. April 6 th sounds good ...
