molly - we will miss you. VR is doing her first run in her 100 Club vest so all three of us will be in the same vests, which are royal blue with dayglo yellow inserts, my race no is 828F. Thanks for the forecast, looks like it will be nice
Khanivore - good news about the half marathon, perfect timing. So many races clash it's such a nuisance for a lot of us.
Clag - well done, a great time and really inspiring report. You'll soon crack that PB again.
Emmy - ooh Luxembourg sounds good, that's a Tuesday though? I already have a marathon on the 5th and 6th May, don't think I could get there in time.
No run for me this morning as food shop before work, then pack and faff tonight and early night
Kettlecise was tough last night, new abs exercises nearly reduced me to tears
Kettlecise was Fun!Shades got a good ab workout as she was laughing too much
Emmy - I thought Luxembourg was June 8th?
Well done Clag. Great report.I have a half booked in March for a PB attempt. Eeeek!
Molly - Thanks for the forecast. I'll see if I can find some Italian news crews
VR - is that Bideford Half?
Khanivore - ease up for a couple of days
Back from Tesco's, lovely quiet time to shop there, just having a hasty breakfast then off to work
Yes and I know its the same day as The Duchy!
@VR - You're right - it's June 8th I may have got a tad bit confused for months
@Shades - That sounds like a great scene! You'll have to take some pictures of the three of you! Have a great time in Italy and I hope it's nice weather.
Awful weather here at the moment
If anyone's interested in buying a Garmin - on Amazon they're doing mega deals at 50% and Garmin 310XT is going on offer at 2.45pm today but they run out quick as I was after a camera and didn't get one!
Our work internet is rubbish, just lost my post on here
molly - slowkoala was asking about Garmins etc I think
Slowkoala - that's good news re your run...just an isolated episode we hope!
Yes, really looking forward to our trip to Florence
Am signing off now as off to pack.
Back on line Tues night or Wed morning, good luck to anyone racing this weekend.
The outside of my left knee was hurting (IT band I guess) for 1.5 days. Before bed I rolled around for just a few minutes on my 'The Grid' foam roller. I massaged the outside of my upper left leg - not where the pain was. The pain near the knee disappeared almost instantly and has not come back at all today. I really must use this thing more!
Got my 20 mile run tomorrow. It has been peeing it down with rain today but forecast says there is a sunny spell tomorrow!!! First once since LAST Sunday when I did my last long run lol. I hope i get lucky.
Hope you guys got to Firenze ok and are enjoying the carbo loading there! Can't imagine a better place to do that Let me guess - pasta?
I was excited at the prospect of doing my first 20 mile run this morning. I set off in lovely weather with clear blue skies. I ended up introducing way too many hills due to changing my course 3/4 of the way through the run. At 18 miles I was passing my house and quit.
I ended up running 18 miles at 9:59 min/mile but it was the 740 ft of elevation that probably hurt me. That and the fact that I was so close to home at 18 miles. I hate quitting. Feel so bad about it afterwards.
Next time I am going to take an energy gel before feeling even remotely tired and will pick a flatter route. I think I need to do the distance, gain the confidence, and then bring the hills back.
