For anyone who doesn't fit anywhere else
Not sure Sacco - I've run 1.05.53 for a 10k as an 11 minute average miler so 10.45 should come up a bit quicker?
Solution = Mitiog runs 10k and reports back
*Screamy is now drooling over curry recipes after a conversation wth a colleague*
Thanks Iklebutn and mitiog. It's on the 18th near Wellingborough. I'm not too worried because it was only intended to keep me on track, but I didn't run the 10 miles as easily as I had hoped... partly due to taking time off with lurgy a week or two back.
Mitiog, you have been running consistently for the past month or two and are better over a longer course - a 10k should be great now because you have a mile or two at the start to get settled in and relaxed. i wouldn't be surprised if you were better when going at the same speed than when trying to adjust between a particular pace and a recovery.
Really nice weather now - might force the kids out for a walk this p.m.
Well I wasn't expecting to run at all this weekend but in the event managed 5.7 miles yesterday which I was really pleased about. Felt about a ninety dragging myself round but my time wasn't too bad considering I'm not 100% . My chest is being a bit unforgiving this morning but that's probably more to do with the freezing cold - lovely and fresh though- - brrrr!
Hope everyone else's weekend plods were successful.
I'm quite happy with the way training's going so far too Siony - I just need to stop eating so much
I love my old garmin, not that I use it particularly constructively.
I finally got out for a run yesterday, it felt "challenging" so I thought I was doing well. But when I looked at my pace it was the same as every other time I'd done that route.
That'll teach me.
Mitiog - you could wear both on one arm.

Don't worry about eating too much Screamy, it's the christmas season (sort of). Think of it as storing up fuel for the miles ahead.
Come on Minardi!
I feel your pain (or apathy). I find it hard at the moment to drag myself out. I don't mind the weekends when I can do my long runs in the light, but going out in the dark, cold evenings after a long day at work to go round and round the local streets is hard to do. But on the positive side, lots of people have their christmas trees up already and their curtains open so it's good for nosy parkers like me. And you can promise yourself something nice when you get back in - a hot bath followed by a glass of wine perhaps? I wonder why I'm not getting any thinner.
Oh yeah, one thing I love about running at this time if year is nosying at other people's Christmas lights, it takes your mind off your legs!
I do fancy a plod tonight but every time I go out in the cold I cough like a forty-a-day smoker so I'm wondering if I should wait until Thursday when the weatherman said it would be warmer - allegedly.
Then again, I made pasta carbonara at the weekend and have some of all the ingredients left over including a lot of parmesan and pancetta so I'll feel less guilty if I do plod first, And I can get my Helly Hansen top and woolly hat out and feel like a well 'ard extreme sports type .... hmm.....decisions...
Hi Mitiog - mine's tomorrow afternoon, should be OK if I go easy on the Prosecco
Good luck for your 10k!
OK I've finally made a decision about sponsorship - I've decided I'm running for the London Air Ambulance and have just got in touch with them about it.
All I need to do is wait for my vest and hopefully for them to arrange a photo on the helipad for my justgiving page
All seems a bit more real now though - eek!!!!
Um...not sure I can make that promise mitiog. I've just stuffed my face with a red velvet cupcake with cream cheese frosting
OK justgiving page all set up...I guess that means I really HAVE to do it now OH...MY...GOD!
Seems OK here in London Mitiog - I work on the 7th floor and can normally hear the wind whistling but it seems pretty quiet at the moment. How was your Christmas dinner last night?
I must say I've not had a "canteen" Christmas lunch in many a year so I was impressed at how much the quality has improved - not sure about the pud though
Feeling a bit pink in the cheeks after the old Prosecco I must say
