Onwards and upwards to other events :o)
Probably put this link on here before but there is a great video of the race in 2005 worth a watch for the scenery and the balloon festival................thats going to be my evening unless it chucks it down then I will take my daughter swimming. Sunday long run..........have a good weekend all.
Looks a good event Mark I am sure you will enjoy that one.
Last nights race went ok, I was 6 seconds a mile slower than I wanted to be but as this was sort of offroad on a gravel surface and there was a small section on grass where you climbed up a steep bit of hill I am happy enough, averaged 7.24 on the night, last mile @7.14 .
Gym in a bit and 16 plus miles in the morning
Did a nice long run yesterday, did 2.5miles with youngest and then plodded on for another 11miles and got just under two hours so going too fast but felt quite good as I didn't take a gel and only one 250mls of water with me which was not enough really...........but a good testing run in warm weather.........the race from Friday was in my quads and hurt abit but getting stronger hopefully just in time!! It was a fairly flat route apart from the first mile......
Happy new week all.
Most people are about as happy as they make up their mind to be.
My bosses younger brother has taken a turn for the worse at the age of 32, found out he had cancer two weeks ago and is now in intensive care not able to breathe. Started with testicular cancer that has spread upwards, not detected when he went to the docs last year and now he is going downhill rapidly. Make sure you check yourselves out for every lump people. Life is short and glutted with agitation.
Cycled in in the pouring rain to find no one here due to the above..................hopefully this will make my boss give up the ciggies.
Sorry didn't mean to unload but sat here alittle shell shocked this morning.
How are you Gatton? Summer seems to have gone rather quick, not that the Uk had much of a summer!!! Off for a little run at lunch, legs abit stiff after the weekend long run and fell race and a bike ride on Monday evening..........wet here and windy............
Gatton is right Mark better off your mind, Kos you lucky lad!!
Training for GNR is good I think, am trying a different approach this year, winding it down now so I am fresh come 11 days time, 8 miles done last night @8.35 average felt really easy, off to the gym in a bit, may or may not run but x train for sure.
I am entered for Swineshead 10 this Sunday, I usually do a HM before GNR but this seems like a better idea chatting to a few people, I won't be caning it but would hope to complete in 1.18 -1.20.
Then next week a 7 miler with Kim on Wednesday steady, club race Thursday which I will either do as an easy run or sit out and a gentle gym session on Friday. I think this may be good for me, main thing is enjoying the event, now my fitness is better that should be possible
Cant beat it USB.. i managed it most days when we were in Spain earlier this year. At least when you sit down to breakfast it is all over and done with and you are left with the rest of the day to enjoy yourself and spend the time with the family.
Good luck at the GNR Rod and Mcs hope it goes according to plan.. remember there are far too many people running over that distance so get a good clean start and enjoy....
Cheers Gatton, enjoy your holiday............I loved running in Spain this summer though abit hot even at 7.30ish. Not run this week as right hammy really tight going to have alittle trot at lunch but dont want to do anything daft so going easy.
At least I am not at a hospital in intensive care like my boss is poor guy...............sat with his brother.......age 32..........life is short enjoy every day folks.
Sounds like a PB for Mr Goodwin coming on. Mr Modest
I am in D orange so will be behind you Rod trying to keep up, though I am going to be happy
a. happy to start and
b. to finish under 2 hours.........
c. can you remind me to make sure I go to the loo before I set off this year instead of talking to you and Lee too long. He is doing it again this year he texted me this morning at 7am to ask what to do with tight calves!!!
