MC - well done on your turbo session! Enjoy your rest day.
Ah, rest day - how I love you!
Happy Friday everyone.
Thanks for all your words. I'll ask MrChili to post a pic.
Jude - you must be building up the mileage nicely now.
Loula - you have been gone far too long honey. Hope all is well for you. Wow! 100 miles! That's not just a little bit further! My goodness, how do you train for that? We really look forward to travelling the jounrey with you and cheering you on.
Hi everyone else.
LSR today, but I think I will do a drop back week. Didn't sleep last night so probably a good idea. Will just do 2hrs. It's hot and sunny today so i doubt I'll want to do more.
Hot Hot Hot up here Short interval run for me today. Now watching tennis
Loula...100 miles phewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww go girl go. I am just tired thining of it.
Chilli.hope you get some sleep tonight.
Have a good weekend everyone.
Loula.....it is good to have you back- but please don't leave newcomers astray!! Hope all is well with you. 100 miler madness....are you still doing the downslink ultra in October? I decided to enter after a few drinks...but, about to pay & said the race was full!!! Hopefully we will meet up soemwhere along the route as it passes 1/2 mile from my house and some of my club mates are doing it. My race on Sunday is Bewl Water & it is going to be Hot,Hot,Hot.
Franny-Let's hope Andy does it.
Chilli-Well done to your daughter and hope she sorts it out with her friend. My eldest is doing a show on Sunday evening- Little Shop of Horrors so I am taking my parents along. Sunday is going to be busy.
Mrs Noel-Enjoy your day of rest...please look out for Loula as she is a very badly behaved young lady and has been known to leave the likes of Franny astray.
MC-I am going to start my hydration from tomorrow- lots of water & just one beer tomorrow night. Tonight well I will have to have a couple of glasses of wine as we are going out for a meal.
I am getting persuaded to do more marathons this year, Definetly doing one on 22/9,but a possibility of one in a couple of weeks time which is a hilly one accross the Downs with at least 3 of the others who ran the last marathon I did in June. Although I am torn between spending the day with Mrs AF as we are childfree!! Also another possible one in october along Beechy Head...another childfree weekend so tending to side with the idea of spending time with Mrs AF. Will however do my 4th Marathon of the year on the 22/12 the Portsmouth Coastal Marathon. The trouble is I want to do a lot of races with a couple of friends from my club to celebrate our 50th year!!! Decisions Decisions.
Will have to see how my knee holds out on Sunday before I enter another race.Was ok for are short club run this morning.
Bye for now enjoy the sunny weekend.
Glad you are all enjoying the sunny weather! Hope I haven't peeed anybody off for something I've said, as I'm feeling a bit invisible.... Probably just being paranoid... sorry if that's the case.
Chili - hope you sleep better tonight. Yep, I'm very happy with my mileage - it's more than it's been all year.
Just back from 6.7 miles. Off out for drinks with 'foreigner' friends tonight. ie.non Turkish group.
Hey Jude...la la la la la la .Well done on your 6.7 miles you aren't invisible. have a good drinksy with your non-turkish friends.
Enjoy your evening Jude
AF - my goodness! After debating doing a marathon for over a year you are really making up for lost time now Good for you! I take it MrsAF is in full support?
Just back from my 2hrs run/bike with No.2 daughter. Oh it was tough! Sooooo hot.
My Big Girl's best friend did apologise this morning and say she wants to be friends again. I'm still a bit annoyed cos she cried herself to sleep last night wishing she hadn't won the competition cos the nasty text message. But hey! thats what kids do.
In all the excitement we arrived at school this morning having forgotten that she was taking place in an inter-school sports day. Where she did it again! 1st in the long jump, 2nd in 800m! Sorry, I know this is getting very boring cos she's won everything this summer, but I think this is last sports event!
Chilli-I need to discuss some of these marathons with Mrs AF- not sure I will get the green light for all of them!!! Well done to your daughter you must be proud.
Am going for a new dress style. Tonight the church leadership team is meeting at our house. I am wearing shorts, t-shirt and compression socks
omg chili your girl is having an awesome week!!!!! well done from us all here to her!!
jude !! so sorry!! i was rushing this morning to get a quick type in before work/school run etc -
you are v lucky with all tht lovely weather to train in! i must come over and run inTurkey with you! i may get told off for my lack of clothes though
when is your next event?
boss yes im entered to do downslink with 3 of the other ultra boys. i expect i will say hi to Wib and then he will speed off, alrthough he joked ( i think) about me just following his pace and do it in 5 hours.....er yeah right
Jude - you are not invisible! Hope you enjoy your evening
chili - good to hear your girl's friend has made up with her. Girls are particularly bad for this kind of thing - wait till she is a teenager! Massive well done to your girl for the sports day too - what a brill summer for her! Hope her sisters aren't getting too jealous.
AF - if you are having knee trouble dn't rush into all those marathons! Take care
well, I seem to be eating everything in sight not sure why
rest day for me today, going to have a run in the morning then I have the big swim in the afternoon at Holme Pierrepoint where I will also be meeitng up with pirates then on Sunday pirate bike feedstation all day
Enjoy your swim MC
Parkrun this morning. I was race director but my Big Girl decided that since she has had such a great week she might as well go for a PB as well. Her previous time was 26:59 so we asked around to find someone who was faster. Our friend Mikk is a 100club member and the 2013 European Veteran 55-60 Marathon Silver medalist. His ankle was hurting so he didn't want to go fast and offered to pace her. She did 25:22!!!!!
Normally we go to McD's for sausage egg mcmuffin when anyone gets a PB but she asked for a Jacquline Wilson magazine instead.
To be honest, I don't think I can possibly cope with any more adrenaline rushes and I hope that this next week isn't so exciting.
wow, chili - nothing can stop that girl!!!
Well swam 2.2k open water this morning and just back from 5 miles with RP bursts. Oof, it's hot out there! Taking my mum for an afternoon tea now - think I've earnt it. Have a lovely weekend in the sun all.
Chili - Wow! Such a brilliant time and PB! She is very fast!
Mrs Noel - Well done on your long swim and run.
MC - Hope you are enjoying your swim this afternoon.
Loula - Yeah! Come to Turkey! Although it sounds like your weather is nearly as hot as ours at the moment.
AF - Did you run today? How's the knee? Hope you can still run tomorrow.
5.5 miles this morning and just done the kids' piano lessons. I know it's their school holidays but I'm trying to keep them doing things other than watch TV all the time and it's so hot to be outside. Pizza-making session later.
Sorry guys it is my ankle that is giving me jip- nothing wrong with my knee. No I haven't run today Franny, but, it seems fine when I run with it strapped up. Will be careful on my hot 15 miler.
Mrs Noel-Well done on your swim.
Chilli-Well done to your big girl she ahs had quite a week!
Day of rest today.
MrsN - well done on your swim
Jude - I make my kids do their musci practice during the holidays too
The swim this afternoon was great, I got there early and met up with loads of pirates. It was so hot there, had about 2 hours before the swim and was sweltering. Then the start was delayed (because the canoe guys who were doing the safety boats needed a break from being out in the sun) so an extra half an hour, but we had already got our wetsuits half on, so that was a sweat sweaty time waiting. It was great to get into the cool water.
I need to learn to swim in a straight line though!
