Slow, steady but determined.
I've done 14 marathons so far - would have been around the same as Tracey, if not more, if I hadn't had a year off last year
And yes, definitely stay km
I went to see the doc this morning - I have to go and get a full 'blood MoT' tomorrow. He wants everything checked out because of my stomach problems. Even my vitamin D level! Wonder if he will prescribe a nice long holiday in the sun if that's low lol I am starting to feel like I need one at the moment..........
Definetley staying Roobarb, thanks
Lol Tracey, managed to find a loop where either paths were clear, or grass verges were ok to run on . 4 mile tonight in 39:21. Not bad to say it cold out there -7 when i got home from work. Brrrrrrrrr
VLM will be number 25 for me (22 marathons and 2 ultras). Went over to Bicester tonight to do intervals, I can't get a reasonably flat bit above 400m long round here.
After a very positive start I've entered a definite slump this week. Had too many interruptions during the day to make it difficult to get out - a condequence of all those grandchildren bless 'em
What part of Lincolnshire are you km10? I'm originally from Peterborough but moved here to Brighton in 1989 but travel back to Peterborough every 4-5 weeks to see my mum.
Talking of which THANK YOU WEATHER Another week until I have to go up there. She actually phoned last night and said she didn't think we should travel with all the snow and ice, just as Mr L and I were saying that that would be the last thing she would do!
Hi Lyndy, I live just outside Lincoln, grew up in spalding, so used to spend quite alot of my saturdays with mates in queensgate shopping centre, lol.
I was up near Peterborough havign lunch last week, can't remember where now! We were meeting some friends who live in Tetney.
Been back to the gym today, was going to run but I was being a bit of a wuss about the footpaths being icy, Mr TS would kill me if I fell again and broke bones Going off road is out as it is just too wet.
Did Spinning and a Pilates class, never done Pilates before, was OK but killed my back a couple of times (which is why I need to do it!!)
Heading up to London later, Mr TS has a business dinner he wants me to join him. I should have had him put some clothes or shoes in the car as I am travelling up by train but have to be dressed smartly for the dinner, that's not so much of a problem, rather the jounrey home, 80 miles back down the M3, just hope the weather doesn't come in early, I'll look a right div on the hard shoulder in my high heels!!
Result there Lyndy We should have been travelling up to Rugby but have put it off due to the weather.
Lyndy - the bad weather brings some positives
TS - I don't blame you re: running in the icy conditions. I'll never risk it again after an awful fall two years ago!
Km10 - I have done VLM 4 times in 5 years! Twice by ballot and twice as Gold Bond places. Aiming for brighton now! I would have never thought I would complete a marathon when I first started running....go for it!
I have only run once this week...did 5 miles on Monday and have done some spinning, kettle bells and zumba. I was planning on doing 5-6 miles this morning but I have a sore neck and shin so leaving it for the LSR at the weekend (weather permitting)!
Moving up to 12 mile this weekend, probably out in the snow . Great day today, honetly!!!! Got out to car this morning, started first time, then whilst i was outside clearing the windows, it cut out and would'nt start had to get green flag out, apparently diesel goes all gloopy when temp below -10, was -12 here last night
Well done on interval session Tracey
Safe journey back from London at midnight, no snow at all, it has arrived overnight though and we have about 3" at the mo, still snowing but has eased to light stuff.
Back and tum a little bit sore from Pilates so hopefully if I can stick with it I will strengthen my core and make it a bit more supple.
No chance of a run really today, will try to get out for a walk though. Bad news re the car km
Quick times there Tracey!
Keep warm and safe everybody
Was the "Morning" just to the ladies Topsec, or to us gents as well? Lol. Or am i the only one on here . Hope you all have good weekend, got 5 mile to do tonight, just started snowing at home, again, then 12 on sunday, and according to met office, not really going to stop snowing all weekend should be fun.
km, you can be an honorary Lady
