Hello DLC! you can't be too novicey if you're running 14 miles midweek!
We're a mix of newbies and experienced old wotsits, [wait for slap...] but also friendly and good at nagging eachother into getting better!
Enjoy the thread and happy running!
15th April for marathon - I could have 3 toenails or 20 by then if they keep doubling up!
Also not keen on them thinking it is ok to grow at rakish angles!
Hi DLC welcome on board you cant be far from me down here in Bakewell. Run 18 miles this week and going well up and down the Monsal Trail to work and round the showground at lunchtime. Nice sunshine here today.
May 27th is my marathon date.
Enjoy your hill reps Redhead, must do some of those horrible things sometime!!! Running up Longstone Edge is my preferred hilly route.
I do file the tops of them - I've seen the same process on elephants toeneails at whipsnade ... nice!
When I file the top I get to toenail nuber 2 and have a nice 2 layer effect.
With regards painting them only colour that would cover would be purple of black and I need to use some glue to try and 'pollyfilla' and smooth the bumps/cracks between the layers. Soooooo attractive!
Marathon is the Paris Marathon mouser - although can't sem to register on the site - ooopsie!
survived 5.5 miles last night, reasonably pacey (9:05 average with a 7:59 pace last half mile) and my shins didn't give me any jip
had to run to work from the garage today while my car got a new exhaust - only 2 miles, but it hurt again - still ran 9:15 pace but for niggling pain all day. Saw the physio who pummeled it for 15 mins and confirmed it was just tired and wanting rest. Oh well.
Hilly 10 (Ferriby, near Hull) on Sunday.
MCS - are you doing the Ashby 20?
Shins/calves then hurt like L all day Saturday, so had them very quickly looked at by a friend this morning, before the race. She confirmed that it's the muscle that's inflamed and no apparant damage to the bone. It's what it feels like, so great?!
I proceeded to take lots of ibuprofen with my pre-race banana, and little leggies behaved perfectly, indeed even asking "please Sir, can I have more?" while pottling down the road (admitedly at the bottom of a downwards pointing hill) at a "comfortable" pace of 6:48 per mile. Yeah, SIX. Didn't last too long, but of the 10 mile route, I did do the first half in 43:00 and the second half in 40:45. Massive PB, lots of ice-cream to celebrate later!
Hope everyone else is just as happy today!
