Three miles   But only walking MWW.  Still, better than nothing, and as Bones is able to be off the lead I do get to really stride out

Another mile and a half this afternoon.  Couldn't get any more out of him.  He just sat down, waited for me then set off for home

I did try to do a little running with him this morning.  Wasn't dressed for it as I didn't have my running trainers on and I was wearing my thick padded ski jacket, but might try donning my running gear when I next take him down to the seafront and see how we get on.

Is anyone doing Brighton Half? I'll be at the start tomorrow with daughter. She's just gone to bed feeling very nervous! Her first race! LTJ and I ran for 8 miles this morning. Lovely but I fell over. What a numpty. Tripped on a raised drain on the pavement about a mile from home. Grazed knees and hand and broken nails and feeling bit stiff tonight; amazing how jarring can affect you when you're a bit older.

Daughter completed Brighton Half in 2 hours 17 mins. She did a run walk from the start. The furthest she had run was 10 miles and her training regime was 1 run, possibly 2 a week. Oh to be 25! She found the last few miles tough and it was great to see her finishing strong. What a gorgeous day in Brighton too; sunshine and a blue sparkly sea. Had coffee and doughnuts on the beach afterwards.

Hiya!

Glad your daughter did so well LTS And hope you are feeling ok after your fall.

Morning, Well done Miss LTS. A fantastic time for a run/walk .  Hope your knees and nails are on the mend.

Sorry to say that I didn't make it to Brighton Half yesterday.  Was supposed to be handing out medals but when the alarm went off at 6am I just couldn't muster up the enthusiasm to get myself down there.  Bones was fast asleep, as was Mr L and I think it was the thought of having to drag myself around the park with Bones before I set off that was the final straw.  If I could have just got myself ready and gone then it would have been ok.

Instead I turned the computer on, sent them a quick email to say I wouldn't be there and went back to bed and Bones didn't wake me until 9:45

LTS - congratulations to your daughter

I did 12 miles off-road at club yesterday morning, lots of puddles and mud.

I did the Brighton Half as well!  Gorgeous day for it wasn't it!!  Felt like I was back on my summer holidays

Well done LTS and to your daughter as well!

I had to take this one slowly as it is sandwiched between endless weekends of 17-20 milers (meant to be a "rest" week) and to be honest was feeling pretty knackered from the start.  But despite a very slow time, I did enjoy it, great crowds!!

Well done Aizxana, glad you enjoyed it.

Had a lovely long walk with Bones yesterday.  Took an opposite route from the way I normally go around the park and started by climbing up to the top of the hills and then along the bridleway that runs next to the golf course. Nearly took my camera with me, but then thought it might need charging.  Wish I had now, so we will be doing a repeat walk this afternoon.  Just hope the sun is still shining when we go out.  Can't do it until the afternoon because there's a race horse trainng track running alongside the bridleway and warnings of "fast horses" between 6am and 11:30am.  Really looking forward to it later though.

All this walking is certainly having an effect on me.  Not losing any more pounds, but I'm sure I'm getting more toned, and definitely fitter because the hills are not leaving me so breathless

On the downside, I've only got three days, including today, until he goes home   Really not looking forward to it.  Think there will be some tears chez Lyndy on Friday

Lyndy - we alway walk or cycle up that BIG hill

Think you have to baby sit bones once a week

Got some nice pics from the top of the valley.  Hopefully it will still be nice enough to go up there again tomorrow, but forecast is not brilliant

Miss LTS says thanks for the congrats. She was raising money for disabled athletes and she was pleased with that. A bit sore yesterday. I went for a run along Worthing sea front this morning and had a coffee with LTJ at Coast cafe. It was fantastic, sunny and warm, with a glistening blue sea. Loads of runners out - must be half term!

Forgot to says congrats to Aizxana. Yes, Brighton half had brilliant sunshine; I remember running it once in freezing rain and wind though. Miss LTS did a run 10 mins, walk 1 min right from the start Lindi and it worked for her.
