No snow currently forecast for Reading/Wokingham until Monday evening. If you hillbillies will insist on living at altitude
with comments like "get your legs prepared" or "loosen them up" i have images of you relative youngsters all creaky and groany like a rusty gate
I'll bring my banjo Dachs! (If all else fails I can use it as a snow shoe)
Creaky and groany is right Dean, but I do like being called a relative youngster!
i always ignored oldies talking about feeling the cold in their joints, but the colder it gets the more my hip feels it!
The positive is that it warms up nicely in a race.
To those running Wokingham - I look forward to putting some faces to names on Sunday!
To everyone else, happy running this weekend
yep good luck to all the wokingham pb hunters,
birmingham XC league for me on saturday which looks like it might be another race v Seb. although as its XC so its his to lose
Good luck this weekend to all the Wokingham runners, did I miss your target SG? or did you manage to leave that out whilst discussing everyones elses aims!
Dont think I'm going to run tomorrow Dean, so you'll have to wait till the intercounties for a wooping if you get selected. Good luck though and I'll look forward to the report. First pain free run today after having 5 days off then a run out yesterday which I still felt a few aches during a couple of 6:10miles, so a race would just be silly even though Im still contemplating running. Im also concerned I've lost fitness and put on weight since I've had quite a few days off in Jan and now Feb, going to take a few weeks to get back to full strength.
Stevie See I didnt know you did the national XC last year! Might finally meet you there even though there will be loads of runners there. Is that your club vest in you profile pic?
We're going to have snow again? Nooooo....
Yep, did it last year and learnt a lot about running in a big fast field. Smash it to the first bottle neck or spend 2 laps expending energy past slow old runners... and still finish 634! Looking for under 400th this year judging by last years race. I wasn't looking to run it this year but I'm entered and it will do me the world of good before Trafford 10K.
That's the vest in the pic so come say hi! These profile pics don't give a lot away, my power of 10 pic is a little clearer. http://www.thepowerof10.info/athletes/profile.aspx?athleteid=116988 Who do you run for? Can't believe I don't actually know that!
I can't believe it's closing in on Mid Feb, and the See-man hasn't a power of 10 entry on his profile for 2013
ps Seb, target is always to finish
you need to get the photo small enough to load, which can be a challenge, hence me still using this pic from a couple of years ago in my old club's colours!
Ha ha, I know! I'm usually on 5 races by now! The National XC was my 11th XC race of the season last year (prob' about 5 too many!), this year it's my second! A mid-December injury is nay good for an XC filled winter! Will it be quality over quantity?!
I am now an expert in re sizing pictures. As you might have noticed.
IrfanView to resize.
Microsoft Office picture manager to crop.
It's funny Stevie, in your forum pic you look like you have hair....
Good luck tomorrow Dean
Ha ha Bus! Can you tell I've been working out a bit too? Not like the skinny waif and stray behind me.
Short run this morning. Merely proved to myself that self preservation is my best option. I simply don't function in icy conditions. My muscles won't have it.
Despite the extra layers, couldn't really get warmed up. Packed it in after just two miles. My covered arms were numb even with gloves.
I actually feel some concern for tomorrow's racers. I'd recommend wearing a hat which would at least keep the freezing water off the head.
Nice parkrun Matt! Lots of positives to take there! Bet you're chomping to get at a quick 5KM now!? You must be Burnley parkrun royalty
I had a go at my first tempo today (can it really be my first!?), maybe my first planned tempo. It went a bit wrong, but not in a bad way. Did 2miles warm up, then 3 miles tempo, which came out at 5:40, 5:46, 5:46. So 10K pace basically... whoops . Only struggled until the last 0.5 of a mile. Wasn't as hard as I would have expected had I gone out with the aim of hitting that pace. Then 0.5 mile warm down. Easy 7 later.
