Slow, steady but determined.
Lyndy - well done on your run...fantastic
Roobs - hope your run went well?
I only managed one run last week, my daughter took up a lot of time and OH was away! Had a lovely weekedn away, and enjoyed Robbie and Ollie on Saturday. Went out for a 4 mile run beofre work...a bit tired now!
Been to Spin class at lunchtime - running with the club tonight. Got to get my ass in gear to start some longer distances - will try to do one this week sometime
Good run Roobs!
A mile's better than nothing Lyndy! How was your holiday?
Roobs - you did fantastic running in that heat that you don't like.
Lyndy - we down in Brighton on Thursday afternoon until Sunday morning ????
Ran Horndon on the Hill 10k on Sunday in 1:02:27, the heat got to me????
TS - well done on your spin class????Hope running club went well
Had a busy weekend. Our firm is one of the sponsors of Pride in London and Brad, his friend Abby and I got to march in the parade We led it Was so much fun.
Then yesterday I ran 12 miles in all that heat; I thought I was going to melt! I was so slow but at least I did it. All miles in the bank eh?
Then I had to come home and sort out the housework as I fly off to Tunisia on Wednesday evening for a week with Brad. My other son, James, his partner and all the kids (5 of them) are going too but the kids don't know we're going Can't wait to see their faces
Off to Peterborough at the weekend Tracey so won't be around
Holiday was brilliant TS. Didn't do anything at all just lazed around on the sunbeds all day. Well almost. We did go into Side a few times had lunch there on our own one day which was probably the best steak I've ever had and as it was Mr L's birthday and our wedding anniversary we went in again to another restaurant with three of the entertainments staff we knew from Sharm. Again, another lovely meal. Hotel was so relaxing we just couldn't be bothered to do anything else. We had planned on doing a couple of trips but it was too hot to venture out on a coach trip.
Sounds like you had a lovely time Lyndy, have to say I can't laze on sunbeds for more than a day or so, get too bored and need to be off doing stuff Just what you needed though by the sounds of it
Roobs, lovely idea, bet you will have a fabulous holiday! Lovely family get together.
Tracey, it may have been more than the heat on Sunday, I think the clue is in the race name - Horndon HILL?? I think I would be reasonably happy with that time in a 10k at the mo.
I am not sure as doing a spin class at lunchtime and then running in the evening is such a good idea?! Running was quite difficult to start with, my legs felt like lead but it did ease off as we went on. 5 miles at sub 10 again so quite good but one of the drawbacks is that we regroup every mile or so, so I am getting a breather which I guess is not giving a true representation of my pace. Will do the runs on my own at a non stop pace albeit a lot slower.
Big problem last night, I borrowed Mr TS' heart rate monitor which he uses on the bike, it links to the iphone, anyway to cut a long story short the connector bit on the front which sits right between/under my boobs chafed - ow ow ow! Didn't feel it till about 4 miles but then it was awful and I went to move it not knowing it was chafing and scratched the chafe - nearly cried!!! Won't be wearing that again! Made sure I have a comfy bra on today!
Well done on the run Lyndy You too MWW.
Ouch to the chafing TS!
Good run in the heat Tracey and it's a good time too.
2 miles for me, changed my trainers and shins seem ok now!
Lyndy - sounds like you had a lovely holiday
Roobs - have a great time in Tunisia
TS - sounds painful..I know what you mean about the spin class!
Tracey - well done on your 10K
I was going to run this morning, but not feeling too good, a touch of the lurgy caught from my son I think! I did a spin class on Monday night and went rowing last night, probably best to take a rest day and hope I can run tomorrow!
We usually get bored just lazing around all day TS, but it was just soooo hot that the thought of treking off to see the sights somewhere just made us want to laze around even more. Didn't even get to walk along the beach anywhere, which we said we were going to do every day, but somehow never managed it.
Hoping to get another run in today but had a problem with my back yesterday. I had to go and pick up a loan car while mine was in the garage having a new radiator. Set off to do a very gently run/walk, but it was vibrating through my back so much I only managed a few yards. When we were on holiday I stretched out to reach for the beach bag and the sunbed tipped up. I put my arm out to stop it and think I must have pulled/twisted something. Didn't notice it at the time, but that night it started hurting. Just keeping myself dosed up now and hopefully it will soon go away.
Careful with your back there then Lyndy.
Houston is like that in Summer, too hot to do any outdoor exercise, some people do but it's not for me.
Going to a circuit training class this morning so that should be good, hopefully not too many sit ups or such like
Chafing injury is actually quite painful, it took off the first few layers of skin so looking quite scabby at the mo I worked out it's because I have quite a big protruding rib cage so instead of the band laying flat around my chest it was sort of on an angle and therefore every step obviously rubbed/pushed it down against the bone! Will not ever be wearing that again!
Popped into Southampton yesterday and Debenhams had a blue cross sale on so got 3 or 4 bits of running/gym gear, then as I was walking back, the running shop had a sale on so got 3 bits in there. But in saying that both pairs of capri leggings are wrong, one too tight and the other too big. Will have to make a trip back again now
Didn't get out for a run today cos I spent the afternoon cleaning MiL's oven. Still, back feels okay considering I've been on my hands and knees with my head stuck in an oven for two hours or more
You have all been busy.
Ran Hilly 5 in Hainault forest this evening in 49:16. It has 3 hills one after the other that you do twice as its a 2 lap course.
Going to be such a lovely sunny weekend and I'm of to Peterborough. Will be stuck indoors most of the time with ALL the doors and windows closed cos she can feel a draft!!!!!!!! I can feel a severe case of claustrophobia coming on already!!!!
oh dear Lyndy
Lovely day here, been up and at for a couple of hours already. washing out on line, second load in, garden weeded and tended, breakfast in the sunshine
Now heading off to a step and tone class!
Lyndy - hope you get some fresh air today!
TS- hope your chafing inury is healing now
I did a 7 mile hilly LSR yesterday morning, off rowing this morning. I have been entered to row a double scull at a regatta next weekend I thought I may as well as two of my children were going to be taking part, but the oldest is off on holiday with her friends (a post A level treat) and my son has rehearsals for his show so he can't be there!
Have a good day everyone...looking forward to the tennis later.
Not a bad weekend after all. Had to go to B&Q for mum so bought a couple of recliner chairs for the garden and spent the afternoon topping up the tan. Also managed an hour or so this morning before mum got up (11am FFS!!!!! - hardly worth me travelling all that way for!!!!).
On the whole she was quite well behaved - after I'd put her in her place over something that happened a couple of months ago when she brought the subject up again and I told her she was wicked to even think like that (she was accusing someone of something she has no proof of and something I don't think they'd ever dream of doing) Soon shut her up LOL
Now its Pimms o'clock
Lyndy - I thought of you yesterday when walking passed the bars on Brighton beach serving jugs of Pimms ????
Mnaged a couple in the garden on Saturday too
Mawning everyone. Mr Bones and kid duties all this week
