Emmy - good news on the run. Mojo back now for you I think
slowkoala - yes 2 pairs is a good idea and if possible have another brand. To run in identical shoes all the time can aggravate niggles that turn into injuries. There's the obvious advantage of 2 pairs, if you run in heavy rain, the first pair won't dry out in time for your next run.
Khanivore - no more pigging out now before your race.
No need to worry about only having 1 day's rest before your half marathon, when marathon training I wouldn't expect you to taper for shorter races, but you could always choose to not run tomorrow if you wish.
Another mild morning here and dry, very pleasant run
shades.... your bit on your shoes made me chuckle too though great idea!
did body bootcamp last night.. body is aching and not thanking me this morning! Got running at lunch with the run club.. dont think i'll be performing too strongly!
Hi Bootsie - How did you get on?
@Shades - I'm not sure... I hope it's back. Last night I turned back as I was feeling a little sick and it's still with me now... Let's see how I get on tonight/tomorrow morning.
@Khanivore - good luck for your half marathon this weekend.
I'm in Big G.. I loved it last time I did it!
Hi Gig G - I'm not a fan of streaking, the running kind that is But good luck to those that do.
Shades - When do you leave for Ireland?
bootsie- bootcamp, bet that was tough.
Emmy - if you're a bit poorly then rest for a couple of days.
Big G - I'll join you and bootsie for the December streak. My last race of the year is 25th November so that will suit me fine as I settle in for some winter training.
VR - Tomorrow morning, driving to Bristol airport for lunchtime flight to Cork
not as tough as intervals in the park.. did 2 *200m and 4*400m averaging 6 mins 50 sec/mile.. i ache!
oooh shades.. cork.. can I please come!!
bootsie - another tough session for you. You must be glad to get back to work in the afternoon for a sit down
Not staying in Cork unfortunately, picking up a hire car as staying near Adare for a race on Sunday at Sixmilebridge. Looking forward to seeing Adare, just passed through last time and it looks gorgeous.
Back to Kettlecise tonight, missed the last 2 weeks
Good Luck Shades . Back on the Guinness?
mowzer - LOL. Probably not much Guinness this weekend, driving and not sure how far I am staying from the nearest pub, although knowing Ireland it won't be far!
No run this morning, packing and Mum's food shop before leaving for airport
Hey Shades - Have a great run this weekend. I hope it's not as hilly as the profile suggests :/ I agree with Mowser - a guinness or two is good for you
I've been offered a slot at the christmas enigma (double).... the question is: one marathon or two....? Any suggestions/thoughts anyone?
A lovely 5miler this morning to drop off my car for it's service. I'm crossing my fingers and begging it's not too expensive
I survived a week of being sneezed & coughed on by my twins only to fall ill at final hurdle, 2 days before my first half marathon. I feel terrible and my mileage this week is going to be well short as I am not going to run my 5 miles easy pace session today.
Can I recover in time or is this RIP Gosport Half marathon? I do not have a history of recovering quickly from illness. Hope I break the pattern this time. I have been waiting a very long time for this race so I can get a better expectation of my marathon time and so that I can choose the best training paces.
Does anyone know of any other half marathons in the South East in December or in January? I can only find mad races like the knacker cracker. If I don't find another one I have to wait until Brighton in Feb
Emmy - lol you'll be doing the quad next in which case i'll see you there
Now er insanity..... I think some impromptu weights first clearing stuff etc to make space.... Turns out there isn't really much room in the loft room plus its not exactly quiet where as ground floor should be far better for noise and its also a little higher. Only technical hitch is the light is a dangly shade fitted one right in the flipping middle of the room....
Emmy - hope the car service isn't too pricey, must book mine in too
Re Enigma, your choice, I'm not getting blamed!
Khanivore - don't run if you're ill, so no run today and see how you are on Sunday. You still have a long time before your marathon so revised training paces are not essential at the moment.
Just look on RW Events, maybe some smaller club races but Dec/Jan there are fewer races due to weather/travel etc. Or maybe look on travelling a bit further from home.
Good luck for Sunday if you're well enough to run
Keith - do your Insanity outside and entertain your neighbours
Right signing off now, home on Monday
good luck for this weekend shades
@Shades - do you think i'd ever blame you? I'm responsible for my own stupidity I'm just looking for advice/confirmation of insanity! Good luck for this weekend - I really hope it goes well.
@Keith - I probably would do the quadzilla but it sells out so quickly/reserve list is so long that I dont think i'd get in!
RE: Insanity: I'd recommend ground floor/garage where you can jump and move around easily. I bought a gym mat to help my knees/ankles on some of the movements.
@Khanivore - completely agree with Shades on the cold front. If you're feeling rough - you are not going to feel any better after running 13.1 miles.... in fact you'll probably delay your recovery even more as you've strained yourself.
@Mowser - are you doing any of the christmas Enigmas? would be nice to see finally see you!
For Keith or whoever that wants another chance to enter Berlin
@Khanivore: There are 7 half marathons in December on the events page and 4 in January
You can also put yourself on the reserve list for this one. It's had great reviews in previous years
