Onwards and upwards to other events :o)
Blimey Scuba, I know you said you looked better than you felt, but had you really just done 26 miles????
I think just about everyone was slower than they wanted to be last weekend, it was stupidly hot at humid. Really well done and good to see you back.
Right, I really am off now. Alarm set for 4am, but from the racket that's going on upstairs I doubt that I'll need it The girls have their very own babysitter who will enjoy playing house rather a lot, but if he carries on snoring at this rate, they'll be erecting little placards outside the coop demanding peace and quiet. Either there's an earthquake, or he's sleeping peacefully
Think my wife had some special filter on the lens. I actually thought I was going to die! Glad to be back, and liking the new thread.
Tea's all set up and ready, Rod, Yorkshire this morning (need the strong stuff) Just boil the kettle and the rest's done
Thanks Hash parkrun for me trip to Leicester first enjoy the frozen North
Good picture Scuba if someone can tell me how to put the photo on here I will get one of me with the medal to complete the rogues gallery!
Welcome back Gemma we missed you!
Wave to me on your way by Leics. I'm working this weekend First time since I worked at Boots when I was at Uni. Rubbish!!
I didn't realise we were supposed to be posting finish line pics. My useless mate hasn't sent me the one of me in my finishers t-shirt yet, but here's me in the t-shirt my friends made me.
Ok one park run completed I got it wrong was aiming for longer than 30 minutes but I could not run at that pace, my unofficial time 27.06 av 8.41
1 mile @ 9.14
1 mile @ 9.03
1.12 miles @ 7.51
I am going to try and attend each week this was a PB as I have never done a timed 5K
so that is 2 pb's in a week !
Pinks enjoy that run it is a great feeling just running because you want to instead of training for a race!
How is the new gym?
Kate good pic I am waving to you now from back Home at Stratford have fun working
Now that is friendship...... it must come from this thread..... have a good weekend everyone... will be at Nun's Run Sunday if anyone is going..
Afternoon, I've just watched the BBC inside sport programme about Major Packer(sp?) and his 3 peaks challange and London Marathon - what an inspiraton. In fact once I've finished my cup of tea I'm going to dust down my trainers and have a gental run. Fingers crossed OH has downloaded the latest marathon talk on to my iPod.
Rod - PB
Scuba / Lostkat - nice photos.
Is something wrong with me folks. I seem to be absolutely fine, todays Parkrun effort was ok and I could go and run tomorrow as I had planned but I am taking a day off and the advice of people on here and at the club and taking things steady, I guess we are all made in different ways, I do seem to thrive on keeping busy, when I was injured however that was the Body telling me to rest............
Have a good run Suze, Pinks a soak in the bath I would say
Finally got round to finding out what this thread was.... looks like you've spent quite a bit of time talking about not posting in the thread I've been posting in *G* I think 'how could the super six scheme be improved' is a valid topic of discussion. Shame it's gone a bit off course at times!
Think I might sign up for Birmingham: looks quirky, and I like quirky. I'll have to check dates, transport etc in more detail. My usual Autumn half is Swindon, which I recomend, but I probably should try something different!
Afternoon Rowan and welcome.
Just back from my first run since Sunday. Ran for an hour, 6.28 miles with an average HR of 171. I guess I need my resting HR to see if thats high or not. Will do that after my shower. I'm a bit new to the HR monitor but think I am going to use it a lot more in training from now on.
COME ON GILLINGHAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We need to win today to stand any chance of staying up.
Come to Birmingham one and all
The plus things are plenty of hotels not too expensive either, shed loads of places to Carb load, a pretty good course not too testing a bit of a hill at around 6 miles and one near the end, "big city race feel" good crowd support too.
The slight negatives are the pens and the start were a bit of a shambles last year took an age to cross the line and the goody bag / medals at the end were being given out willy nilly and not all in one place, a fantastic medal though to be honest one of the better ones I have received.
Suze the HR bit of the Garmin is fascinating, mine is missing again after someone walked off with my goody bag at VLM, the strap was in there as I find it's good to get the strap off after finishing, so I will now have to get another.
As you all know by now I do love my stats
