Well done MC! Nice to run through the forest on a bright fresh morning. Sorry your hip was hurting but so good you could run most of it. No medal?
Good luck with the marking and the lesson prep. (I don't like my job but am trying to keep positive this year.) Not long till the school hols at least.....Enjoy swimming.
Well, Life of Pi is on telly this evening. Haven't seen it before but heard it's good.
no, no medal, I seem to make a habit of entering races without medals!
Enjoy Life of Pi, I have heard it is good too
Good morning everyone!
Hope everyone had a good weekend?
MC - Well done on the 10K!!
Loula - Yes, i'm feeling much better now thanks. I never usually get ill but this one just seemed to drag on and on!! I blame that weekend away! Ooooh those ultra sound interesting!! Im tempted to do one but just need to get concentrating on London first!
AF - Well done on the mileage! Impressive stuff.
Chili - Nightmare! I hope it hasn't damaged her confidence and she makes a swift return to singing!
Jude - When do you get to the UK, what area are you going to?
Hi Franny and Louise, hope you are ok!
Sorry for my absence to but I have been working all weekend and been busy with other stuff too.
Aw Chilli I hope your girly is ok after her trauma. Well done on your 9 miles in the dark.
Loula sis Oooooooooooooooo you have exciting ultra plans lined up there Go Loula Go
AF.Your mileage must be so impressive this year whilst mine is not a patch on what it usually is
Nandy Glad your feeling better and ready to train again.
Mathschick Sorry didn't realise you were racing at weekend Well done and hope your hip isn't too sore today. I too seem to enter races with no medal however usually a t-shirt so that's ok.
Jude Hope you enjoyed Life of Pi I haven't seen it and did I read that you are coming home for Christmas That will be fabby
Louise Hope your managing to get some cross training done now.
Well I hope to get back out running tomorrow Didn't get a chance over Sat and Sunday and this morning I kinda just rolled over back to sleep Ah well must have been needing it
Have a good day everyone Just about to go get ready for work
MC-Well done on your race. I hate not getting a medal at the end of the race. That happened to me in my last race in November and despite pictures on the website of people wearing medals at the end of last years race there was nonce to be had!!
Franny-Hope you get a chance of a run tomorrow.
Well I did 6.3 miles this morning and my mileage for the year so far is 1655 miles - last year I did 1745 so will fingers crossed be a new record.
Well done on your run and mega mileage AF. I am sure you will beat last years no problem.
I went to gym this morning and did weights and core stuff and this afternoon me and Chico took to the hills. It was very very muddy at bits but that makes it all the more fun. We were both well muddy at the end of our 6 miles. Was so funny coz I was getting my running gear on and when Chico saw his running lead coming out he got very excited. Guess he likes his running
Hope everyone else is well and having a good day.
Really need to start getting sorted for Christmas Anyone got their tree and decorations up yet ? I usually do by now but just haven't got round to it yet
Franny - sounds like Chico is great company on your runs. Well done on your 6 muddy miles.
AF - I'm sure you'll break your record.
Nandy - I'll be staying on the Isle of Wight. I'm a Londoner but parents moved to the island about 12 years ago. It's a lovely place to visit. This will be the first Christmas in England for about 9 years so we are all very excited although I have a lot of planning for the week I'm away from school.
Hi everybody else!
Went to the fitness room last night. It's turned very cold here and we have snow predicted for the weekend.....
Have a good day! xx
Franny - Well done on the 6miler! Sounds like you enjoy running with your little buddy! No Christmas decorations at my house yet!
Jude - Sounds great! I've never been but I've heard it's very nice. I hope you all have a really good holiday!
I went out for my first jog since I got my cold last night. I didn't feel great! Think I need to do more core work as my lower back was pretty sore when I got back! Got football training tonight. I entered two more races yesterday, got a half marathon on 19th January and a 20miler in March in preparation for London. Just as well im stopping drinking after New Years Eve!
Jude That's brill you getting to go home for Christmas after 9 years You will all be so excited.
Nandy Well done on your run last night and hope that back gets better soon.
Just a 5 mile run at tempo pace today. Left Chico at home then we went visiting my mum in Dunbar. Lovely day today but weather to take a turn for the worse tomorrow with strong winds and snow showers.Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo
Hope everyone is well
the medal thing doesn't really bother me, it is nice to have a memento, T--shirt, race number, things like that....I would rather the cost of the race was less and not have the frills to be honest - this one was £10 and I got a t-shirt and choccie biccies at the end
well, haven't done much this week - work stress, lack of sleep, coping with a teenage boy all getting a bit much for me!
hello all !!!!!!!!!!!!!
jude that's fabby that you are getting to come home !! IOW is lovely , would love a week there , and got my eye on an ultra there too
nandy, hope your back is ok, take it easy, not too much too soon :0
thanks franny sis for the pics of you n chico- his lickle muddy legs bless xx
Boss, there are lots and lots of ultras around. depends really on what type of thing you like . hilly? flat? point to point? loop? laps for the security of having kit in one place and not carrying stuff? or one with minimal support and a few aid stations along the way but you have to carry mandatory kit (water,whistle, map, phone, first aid ) etc.
I really liked my first ultra which was northants ultra. very low key, very friendly ( but all uiltra events are!) im doing it again next year too if im back from hols in time .
