Slow, steady but determined.
GFB, depends whether you are just staying the night before or the night after too.
We did both nights and and stayed on Pall Mall, the joy of just walking round the corner after the marathon was brilliant. To have had to get on the tube for an hour afterwards would have been tough, but I would imagine it's a great atmosphere!!
Mr TS dropped me at Charing Cross early on the morning and it was easy to get the train to the start. You are awake early on the day wherever you are!
Hi Jollie32 And welcome
Well done Tracey - now you need to keep it up Its hard work this staying in shape business.
Well, I have lost 3lbs but people have been saying that I look like I'm losing weight - that would be the running then eh? Building a bit of muscle up again
Not been too well this week - I overdid things on a Corporate Responsibility day on Tuesday although I didn't realise it at the time. Felt really ill Tuesday night and didn't really recover so I left work early on Thursday and didn't go in yesterday. I keep thinking I must be back to normal again but every now and again, my body smacks me one in the face to remind me that its in charge! Oh well, onwards and upwards eh? My next appointment is 29th November so I'll have to mention to the oncologist how bloody whacked out I keep feeling just in case there is something underlying going on. Although, people keep reminding me that my body has been through a lot this year and to be patient. Me? Patient? Ha!
Roobs, your body will keep smacking you - take it easy girl!!!!
Ripped in 30 eh Tracey, sounds fun
Welcome Jollie, tell us a bit about yourself and we'll tell you our secrets!!
Jollie - welcome
(((Roobs))) - take it easy...hope you feel better today.
Tracey - I didn't make it to day 30! Well done!
I have been doing some short runs this week, longest 6.5 miles yestedray. Still struggling to gte back into running after my ankle injury, I have been doing some rowing as well..really enjoying a change! My oldest daughter is 18 today..don't know where the time has gone! I feel ancient!
Have a good day everyone
Happy Birthday to your daughter MWW
How did your 10k go Tracey? I did the Titsey Trail 10k today and it was a mudbath!
((( Roobs ))) Hope you are feeling better.
Have had a great weekend with friends, family and had a 2nd date with the guy I went out with last weekend I was a bit more sensible and got home around 3 this week instead of 8 like last week lol! He's really good fun and a real gent. Not many of them around these days in my experience
Off to bed now, really early I know, but I need to catch up on last night's sleep, besides I don't want to burn out like I did last week
Hope you are all well
Well done on your 10k Tracey Its Brighton 10k next month I'm not going for a time at all - I just want to get round in one piece lol
Roobs, you dirty stop-out!! Good on ya!!
Happy birthday to MWW daughter
Tracey, I would be delighted with under an hour for a 10k at the mo, especially one with a hill! That 'I'm going to be sick' feeling is awful isn't it. I'm always thinking "no, no - keep it in"
Little bit of improvement here, have been out for a run on my own this morning and managed 4 miles without stopping - woo hoo. Again, it was very slow, about 11:30 min miling but it is getting easier. I guess on those times my Jan 10k will be 1:10 - only 13 minutes over my pb We'll see ...
Funnily enough, my legs and breathing felt fine, the bits that niggled/ached towards the end of my run were my left arm/shoulder (I had my iphone on my arm listening to an audiobook so maybe holding my arm different?) and my lower back. It's the same old story of my core being weak. If I actually did something rather than just talk about it it might improve
Well done TS
I'll be out for a trot tomorrow although my stomach is playing up a bit at the moment (lingering effects of RT)
