Slow, steady but determined.
Done my longest run i've ever done today, 14.4 miles in 2h 44m, legs were suffering bit near the end, but feeling ok after some food and a hot bath
Thanks LTS, that must have been a little frustrating with being seconds over the 5 hours.
Thanks Tracey, and good luck with your 15, hope not as windy as it is here
Thats good going Tracey, well done , know exactly what you mean bout the head wind, bored with weather recently . You get the snow and ice, then the rain, which not too bad, then the rain stops and get Gail force winds . Would be nice just to do a run thats not slippy or windy
Stomach permitting, I may do a little run tomorrow lunchtime Just to see how I get on
Well done everyone on their runs
Evening Roobarb, hope you manage to get a little run in
Hope you get that run in Roobs Fingers crossed for you.
Well done on the 15 miles Tracey.
Anyone on here doing Brighton Half on the 17th. I had hoped to do it but am now donning my Volunteer's had again and will be handing out medals. So if you are running it look out for me at the finish line And apparently all of us voluteers will be donning out hats this year because they are giving us all a red "marshals" hat so we can be recognised in the crowds
Today I have a new house guest arriving. His bed is ready and waiting and some new toys. He will be staying with me for just over two weeks. His name is Bones and he's the biggest, hairest, German Shepherd dog you ever did see!! His daddy (my grandson, Jay) is off on holiday for two weeks with his mum, step-dad and brother and sisters so grandma is on dog walking duties. AND I'm really looking forward to it. So, there won't be any running done by me for the next couple of weeks, but there will be lots of long walks
He's big enough to ride on Tracey!!!! In fact, the kids do sometimes when they're playing with them
The only problem I'm really going to have is that when Jay's away Bones won't eat so you have to sit with him all the time until he's finished his food. the kids stayed last weekend so I've got Jay's pyjamas and put them inside the bed that I've bought for Bones so that Bones can smell him. Hopefully it will help him to settle in as it's the first time he's stayed here.
Worse than having a baby stay
Sorry Tracey - only just seen your post. I'm really tired so I'm having an early night - on my way to bed now.
Probably see you there then LTS. How does your daughter feel about her first race. I remember I was terrified, but then I always am before a race. Well, not terrified, but apprehensive. It's as much as I can do to get any food inside me on race morning because I'm choking with every mouthful
Just so you know - this is "The Hound", otherwise known as Bones
Back is killing me right now, not used to walking in wellies.
Had a lovely walk around the park this morning and had driven there because I had to take Ellie to school first, so it was just a quick jump into the car and a short drive home once he'd had enough. This afternoon we walked right across the park around the back of the caravan site (Sheepcote Tracey) and I was going to carry on the Sheepcote Valley but all of a sudden he decided he'd had enough and he was off. He's really good and will come back when he's called, but for safety's sake I put him on his lead well before we got back to the main road. He's obviously NOT been taught to walk to heel!!!!!
Need to build up on HIS stamina so I can get the lovely long walks in I'd mentally planned
That poor dog will go back a shadow of his former self Lyndy lol
