Right .. plans for this year race wise
Brighton Half - Feb
Ballycotton 10 - March
Sussex Marathon Living Weekend (Not a real marathon) - May
oh and Reigate 10km July
Emmy - stick with the lenses. I remember at first hating them and thinking how can people put up with these but I soon changed my mind. It really does make life a lot easier. I use daily disposables.
Shades - I've never done Berlin, it'll be my second "major" and just when I thought i was almost half way there to doing all of them - they go and add Tokyo!!!
AND I'm staying with you, VR & Emmy - we can have a porridge party!!
Thats great news Molly.
I'll enjoy the porridge party!
@Khanivore - has anyone ever told you that you might have an unhealthy relationship with food?
@Shades -I know this is a little late in the day - but what pace should I stick to tomorrow? 10.45 min miles? or what do you recommend?
Emmy - repeatedly. I would type more but I am busy eating
Khani - what are you like!!!
Seriously though (preaching bit) I feel so much better eating healthy food and I still have dark choc twice a week & an ice cream once a week. I was the junk food queen but there's no better satisfaction than a PB.
VR - I'm so looking forward to it even though it's ages off
Emmy - have a good run tomorrow
I've got a HM on Sunday, it's flat but there are a lot of off road bits and there looks to be a lot of bends. I did my last HM (early October) in 1.54 so I'm hoping to knock a teeny weeny bit off that.
Khanivore - We love our food on this thread! You are in the right place.I've entered a few short races A 7 miler off road, A 5k Santa fun run. Both in December. A 10k in January and a 10 miler. A half marathon in March.
Emmy - How far are you running tomorrow?
@VR - It's the full marathon (foxy@40). Are you taking a break from marathons for a bit?
I agree - we do like our food! Ive stuck to my low GI lately and it's been working wonders on my energy levels.
Of couse, sorry I forgot! Not really taking a break, Just a break from that Lake!Lost count how many times I've been round it!Still got 5 marathons to do this year
bootsie - well done for motivating your fellow workers into doing a 10km.
molly - that's brilliant that we're all staying together for Berlin.
Yes, I saw they'd added Tokyo to the list, but I never intend to do all of the majors anyway as I've never fancied doing Boston. Would like to do Chicago though.
Good luck for the half marathon, I think you'll do a good PB.
Emmy - yes 10:45 sounds fine, I don't think it's a challenging course and it's good to focus on a pace when you're doing repetitive laps. Have a good run.
VR - oooh short races. Which 10 miler have you entered? I want to do a 10 mile road race. Which half in March? I also want to do a half but only found Bideford which is the same day as the Duchy.
Its a wet cvourse
Although the band of rian will have gone in a fwe hours.
Anyway off to the other lake in a minute to put tent up for bags.
Dinner was chicken burger and chips for those who want to know, no steaks for me
6:49:53 for me clocked 40.37 via transfer to fetch, sporttracks says 40.44 garmin went for 40.6
I was after sub 7 so was happy with sub 6:50 espcially as i thought sub 7 would be hard work
Shades you need to ask Emmy what her sister did to earn a free pudding post race
I'd love a copy!
Keith - well done. Did it rain all day?
Emmy - how did you get on?
wondertaff - you have to PM me your email address, can't send attachments via RW
It barely rained at all as i expected having studied the various weather sites. A little light rain for at most the first hour.
Interestingly nothing hurts too much this morning apart from my bottom Even the nipple rub looked far worse than it actually was.
