Agree with not doing a GB place, you start to run out of friends, they avoid you knowing you are going to talk about running and causes etc!!!!Its raining again here just ready for me to run home again!!
Helen, can't you just get up early and run, then be back in time to lure him into thinking you've made him breakfast?
(just put things on the table so he actually does the work himself anyway!)
Otherwise, you may just have to let him watch the football while you "nip out" 3 times a week!
this is about to be my first 0 mileage week for over a year! wish me luck!
This is heading for my highest ever Jim of 45 miles if I can get to 20 on Sunday which I will!!! Wish me luck!!! All the best Jim enjoy the rest!!!
<faints at the thought of Jim not running for a whole week!>
Gentle pootle for me tomorrow ahead of the Three Forts Challenge 27 miler on Sunday. Hoping the weather is cool and dull like today
mcs, good luck with your long run.
I too get up very early to do my long runs. When I had to work at the weekends I used to get up at 4am and set off for my run at 4:30am in order to get back home in time for a shower, brekkie and then to dash off to work as I didn't get home until after 7pm! Now I try to get out by 6am at the latest so it doesn't interfere with homelife too much
don't worry Redhead, I managed a steady 4 miler this afternoon!
Ran today to make sure there was no thoguht of a 0 week again. 8.3 in 76 mins with one of our speedy club runners - he just used it as a recovery run midway through his LSR - ran 5 miles before we met, then went off for a 7 mile run home afterwards! It was a nice 9 minute pace run for me and useful as he did all the chatting. I must admit I switched off listening when he got into detailing how he'd keep up his 250 mile per month target. Youch!
I survived the Three Forts Challenge yesterday! It rained for 4 hours but the wind wasn't too bad except on the highest bits of hill. The muddy bits were horrendous though, especially on the homeward stretch after 300 hundred runners had traversed the route twice
Beat the time I had to beat by 15 minutes and that was even though I did the splits on a muddy uphill section and had to come down the last 2 miles of mud very, very slowly as I that's where I took a nasty tumble in 2010 and it was treacherous. I let 5 people pass me so I didn't hold them up and 2 of them waited for me at the end as they were worried that I might have fallen again. How kind!
Next one is the South Downs marathon in just under 4 weeks so plenty of time to recover
Jim, phew, glad to hear it wasn't a 0 week
well done Redhead, great effort!
rest now and have fun on the South Downs!
Street family running machines!
LOL at needing a tree!
Feeling fine this morning and only a slight tightness in my quads so very pleased with my recovery. Will do a shortish plod tomorrow.
Great effort Redhead you obviously have what Tony Audenshaw calls Tuesday legs!! Well done. A few intervals to do today dont feel like it.
IJ good luck with the 0 miles!
I need to build my milage up again - but will need to use the foam roller as ITB flaring up again. I'm doing Dublin in October and have put in for VLM ballot too!
HL - I agree it's tricky trying to fit all the training in!
