thanks all , was a great day on my fave trail .
Boss, you will have to tell me where you are , im planning on NDW training over summer. yikes 6:53 m/m?? thatd finish me lol. was a good time boss!!
aw louise , sorry to hear about your ankle stopping you , best to before more injury occurs ( says she who ignored all advice not to run)hope it heals soon. its weird after distance because today i really didnt feel that hungry nor yesterday when i finished, just fluids really and tried to eat protein today and FGS for repair.
chili, cake sounds yummy thank you!!! will be needing that in next 48 hours .
miss llb didnt ride a bike til 6 either , thought she never would whereas i was much younger and on skates and allsorts at 5..they all do it when ready i guess.
Loula that was a brilliant report. It sounds so tuch but what an amazing achievement.
I went for a run yesterday but after rushing from Chruch with little Ecky and the racing off to meet my friend, I struggled on our 4 miler and at one point felt really sick and light headed. I wonder if it was because I have been eating a bit too well and needed a bit of sugar. Bournville sorted me out and some cakes made by Big Girl. I have been out for a little run this morning but just don't have the energy so only managed 2 miles. I will rest now as we are racing on Weds night. We have the Washlands relays which are 2 miles.
Loula - so how sore are you? I know you recover well usually.
AF - sorry to hear that your race didn't go as you wanted.
So it is Franny's turn this weekend! Are you feeling better?
Loula-I live about 15 miles sout of Box Hill in a place called Southwater near Horsham. Would happily do along run with you if you are in the Box Hill area. Hope you aren't too worn out today?
Ecky-Hope the energy comesback.
Morning Chilli,Franny,byeck,ecky,louise,MC etc etc.
Did a steady 30 minutes on the treadmill this morning as weather wasn't good. Will run tomorrow instead.
Loula..that was a fantastic report. mahoosive well done and as Ecky said cannot imagine running that distance and for that long. I am in total awe of you too.
AF..sorry to hear you didn't get the time you wanted but I am sure you will get your sub 45 one of these days...DO NOT GIVE UP believe you can it will happen.
Ecky..hope you feel more energized soon in time for your race on Wednesday night.
Yes its my turn this weekend and to be honest I am still feeling pretty rubbish but hoping I will be okay. no running this week.Had intended to do one this morning and one at weekend but just not up to it and just want to focus on getting well. Hubby doesn't think I should run if I am still not right by Thursday and has looked into a back up plan of doing Shrewsbury Marathon on 23rd June I just kinda want it over and done with now though.
Louise..hope your building troubles aren't causing you too much stress.Hope your ankle is better today.
Qork at 2pm for me then offfffffffffffffffffffffffff for ages...yayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
Hi Franny. I really hope you are feeling better for your race at the weekend. I would agree with no running at all if you have been feeling unwell. I didn't run at all the week before the Marathon and was okay. Its good to have a back up too if you are still unable to run. I bet you can wait to have some time off.
franny, hope you recover in time for your marathon. I think I would agree with your hubby, don't run it if you aren't well enough
ecky - hope you are feeling better.
off to swimming later
5 mile hilly run. Accompanied by two daughters on their bike. Helped me go a little bit quicker than i normally run it.
My twins came bouncing home from school today over-the-moon cos they have been selected for their school athletics club. The tryouts were a couple of weeks ago and only the top 3 girls from their class were chosen. I was a bit nervous cos my girls do long distance (1.5-5k) not short speedy distances (yr 4 do 80-600m) and they so wanted to get into the clubs. Of course, then the worry is that one will and one won't (which is what happened last year!). Am feeling very relieved...
chili - great news for your twins, well done to them
and well done to you on the run
CHILI THATS FAB NEWS!!! good on the girls , hope they enjoy being in the athletics club-obviously taking after a sporty mum!
boss, i will indeed let you know when im in the boxhill area, that stretch from there to the end is where i need practise so if you fancy a 25mile run please join me
well last night by 8pm i was tired, id done a lot of things during the day , thighs were a tad achey but otherwise ok. felt tired getting up at 6 today and quads still a bit stiff but otherwise ok. when i finished work at 2 i came home and the stifness seemed to go all of a sudden and ease off completely . so ive mowed the lawn and done the weeding and some pots for the garden this afternoon
franny sis, hope you feel better , its a hard decision isnt it, i know how you feel but dont wreck yourself for it. there are always oher runs xx
Morning! Is it coffee time yet? I have some really gorgeous banana and walnut cake. We had a church leadership meeting last night and it was most amusing to see my hubby (the minister) and one of our deacons fighting over the last piece on the plate
Terrible news from Oklahoma. We are thankful that all Mr Chili's family are safe but he still hasn't heard from some friends...
Franny-Hope you get better. Not sure what I would do in your situation.
Chilli-love the sound of that cake.
Loula-Let us know when you plan to run that stretch- I may be able to cope with 25miles at a slow pace.
Nice 7.3 miles 1st thing this morning.
Mmmm, I hope the silence on here means you are all running lots
1 mile swim this eve. And I have finally got my bike back from its service so I'm looking forward to a ride tomorrow morning.
My Big Girl is representing her primary school at a cross-country event tomorrow afternoon. We have no further details - don't know how far or who she is competeing against, or anything. But she is very excited and we're all going to cheer her on.
