Come on Pinks catch up.....Hash ran with Pixie from the Mudchute for a few miles.... now that is friendship personified.... BTW Hash you could have gone as far as Buck House before they would have tried to pull you out.... You could have said to them " don't you know who I am " and finished....
Yep, but I hadn't earned that. Pixie had, and then some. Next year, when I can do it all for real.......
Those seven miles did easily as much for me as they did for Pix, they made some sense out of me owning that t-shirt. The crowd at the end of the underpass at mile 24 got a hell of a lot more drama than they bargained for - two women in matching super six t-shirts sobbing their eyes out, hugging the life out of each other, one heading towards the finish line.......I don't think I've ever, in nearly 47 years, cried so many happy tears in one day, and that includes my wedding day.
*reaches for the tissues*
I am really struggling to keep up with everything at the moment so although i've read back I'll probably miss most things I could have commented on. I definitely won't waste any time looking for 'that' thread though.
MM - my 12 year old does parkrun, last week she took around 40 min, her Pb is 38.xx. You will be very welcome if you turn up
Anyone who has ever registered for parkrun doesn't have to do it again, however you do need to go to their website and print off your barcode in order to get your time recorded against your name
Finally took the rolling pin to myself and got out for 8 miles tonight
Hi all Hash Lovely post that next year you will do the whole dam 26.2 miles that is for sure.
I went to the club tonight everyone was so friendly and pleased for me I got round last Sunday I was well chuffed.
Did a small run.
2.43 miles 21.20 @8.46
1 mile @ 9.15
1 mile @ 8.38
0.43 miles @ 7.58
The legs feel fine and it was nice to run other than slow but it took a while to get up to any speed
I met a friend as I was leaving who said 3 weeks rest with only gentle training is the norm after a marathon, has anyone got any advice please?
Thanks Hash BTW for the advice my friend at the club said the same, it is not in me to stop completely so I will be just as you say taking it easy.
I am looking forward to lurking at the back of the Coventry Parkrun this Saturday, I am sort of planning to try and go each week for a while starting off slowly and using it to help with my speed.
Was going to do a 6 or 7 miler on Sunday but maybe not after the good advice, see how I feel.
I am at the physio this morning for really what should be the last session, I chose to book this to be on the safe side, he did a fantastic job and definetely helped get me to the start last Sunday along with all you on here
