Introducing First Timer Craig (aka BoDuke)
The old ones are always the best
Just to satisfy my curiosity Craig and to save me going back through this whole thread - do you have a summary handy of your weekly mileages to date? You're doing about 32 this week I think aren't you?
So sorry the race got cancelled - the snow put a huge spanner in the works all weekend (still is down my way) But well done for getting out. I tried this morning but I am hopeless at running on slippery surfaces and really tense up.
So how are conditions now for this week's runs? And have you had a chance to test out your strength training regime yet?!
SB, here are the mileages so far for Craig:
week 1 20
week 2 22
week 3 21
week 4 26
week 5 28
week 6 24
week 7 32
Ten: How funny was that? Have to remember that one the next time I get asked how training is going in the office.
Thanks Sam, beat me to it.... Conditions seem to be better now, melting but going to take it easy first thing and keep an eye out for ice. Hoping that I can get my Garmin to work properly, can't delete the scheduled workouts from the watch, which is really annoying when your trying to do intervals...Can anyone help??? Have issues with Training Center too, but trying to sort that...
Know what you mean about tensing up, like someone has taken all of the 'relax juice' out and replaced with 'be tense oil'....
Going to do the exercises tonight while watching the Protecting Our Children programme I think... Couldn't print them off this this morning. The Stork is a new one on me, very Karate Kid. Wax on - Wax off, Ms Murphysan... That referrence only really works if you grew up in the 1980s I know...
Looking forward to increased miles too now. Got a map of the Paris route on my desk divider, laminated and everything... Just need to get a speeded up video of the route now... Out of 10, with 1 being Fonze like cool and 10 being the geekest thing ever, how does that rate???
Oh curry and rice is done, in a biot folks.....
Ha ha! You'll like the stork, Craig. And if it's too easy, then you progress to the hop and stick. (which is kind of like a slow motion game of hop skotch. Grasshopper.... she know best
I remember it well!
Please make him catch flies with chopsticks Sam - pleeeeeease, pleeeeease! BoD - we'll need video footage!
Kevster - check out Rosie's thread - Sam posted some stuff there earlier (I have similar intentions ...)
Ha ha! Well done though - got your eight quid's worth!
Oscarr, thanks for the Abingdon alert. I might be up for that. Am holding one of my marathon workshops next Sunday so busy preparing for that this week - and hoping the snow disappears
