Oo, good luck racers
Glad the cold came to nothing Lesley, I often find a run clears a headache.
Good news that you're running again VR Injuries must be very frustrating!
Shades, I find rest days annoying too - don't always want to run on my runnning days, but as soon as a definite planned rest day comes along I want to get out!
Last LSR for me tomorrow before tapering starts - it's the GNR next weekend, then 3 weeks to Kielder - torrential rain forecast for the morning - going to get wet!
Is that Summer over now?
I hate you Big G!!! After reading your post I went ahead and entered Bridgewater too!
oh well, it's one I've never done before. It will be a good fitness test!
Shades, at the very beginning of this thread (years ago now!), you talk about a marathon schedule you have created - is this something you still have please? Thanks you.
Hate's a very strong word VR You'll love it, I'm sure
Hopefully see you there then. Do you know if any other Trotters are doing it?
No idea Big G. Looked to see if there was an entry list but there isn't. Yep. See you there
Madbee - you're right, it's because I had to take a rest day that I wanted to run.
Are you still feeling tired?
rainedonparade - yes, still available. PM me an email address and I'll send to you.
VR -one run after your back injury and now you're going to race. What about your training?
Signing off now. Good luck to all racing this weekend especially Molly doing her first tri....can't wait for the race report
Good luck to Shades for her ultra! I'll be leaving for the UK tomorrow but not sure how much access I'll have so have a great weekend's running all!
Good luck to Molly for her first tri!
Shades - At least you can go the long way to work and make it 2 Good luck with the Ultra.Big_G - Sounds like you are running well at the moment so go for it, you'll know a few miles into the race how you're feeling on the day.Emmy - Are you racing in the UK this weekend ?I settled for a 12miler last night, so a 20 planned tomorrow if I can get up early enough to be out the door at half 5 latest. Otherwise will have to do it Sunday eve or Monday.
Hi Kingkenny - Yep - i'll be getting my gladrags on and running the Bachhus marathon in Dorking (it's fancy dress and wine ). It's quite close to my parents so perfect for a weekend away. They'll have the dog for the day and I can run!
Boyska will be having a treat tomorrow - we're going to run around windsor great park and hopefully he'll get to see some lovely deer!
That sounds great Emmy
What more do you want from a Marathon!
'Your entry fee includes race entry and wine tasting around the course and a post race glass of wine and hog roast BBQ'
'We would strongly suggest that you come via public transport if you can.' ..ha ha
Windsor park is ace.
Wow, that sounds like my kind of race Emmy! Enjoy yourself!
Shades, Big G and VR, enjoy your races too, and good luck with your tri, Molly - did you manage to get the sea-swimming cracked?
Last LSR done Cut it a fraction short, as it was LASHING down with rain, and I was so cold, wet and miserable at 16 miles that I decided to go the direct way home instead of adding a mile loop in, so finished at 19. I felt really strong though and did a pretty hilly route a little faster than I have done it before, so I'm content with that - I might do a little pootle out tomorrow on tired legs just to round off the week. Shades, I think I am a little less tired, hard to tell as it's been a really mental few weeks at work so feel quite tired brain-wise, but physically I have had a good week training, so feeling happy. I'm convinced I can run a marathon now!
Madbbe - 19 is ample you'll have no problems doing a marathon. I did my first after a LSR of 17 miles and since then I don't usually go past 18.
Errr, no I haven't cracked the sea swimming lark. It'll be a mix of crawl, breast & back stroke. I'll pretend that I misheard "free style" for "three styles"
Shades - have a great run at your longest Ultra of the year, good luck
Emmy - hope you have a fab weekend both running and with your mum & dad
Big G - Pb on the cards then? Best of luck. You're right it is an unusual time for starting.
VR - good luck to you too and don't go haring off we need you on top form for Berlin!
My dad went home to sunny Yorkshire this morning so thankfully he won't be around to watch me stagger home tomorrow at the tri. Rest day for me today. Cycled to work & back yesterday and I'd put some coloured lip balm on in the morning and as I was dashing downhill I went through of a gang of midges, I must have had 20 on my lips - not a good look at all!
Debuting my trisuit tomorrow, hope it won't be see-through. I'll soon be uploaded onto Youtube if it is! I'm in the process of writing my gear list so I don't forget anything. I'm going to try my best and enjoy, everyone's got to start somewhere!
Good luck to Shades, Molly, Emmy, Big G and VR. Very busy weekend
Good luck with the Tri molly. Dont think back stroke is allowed in Tri and you may get pulled out of the water If you do it, if you are in trouble you turn onto your back and put your arm in the air
good luck to all this weekend
Molly - lol at your midge covered lips!! Good luck with your tri.. Looking forward to hearing about that one! Good running to all other Shadies this weekend too!
Hope Shades has had a good ultra and Marathon Molly a good first tri. Emmy, can't wait to hear your report for your half too.
No running club for me today as we had an attempted break in last night so was up till 2am seeing police and forensics. Grrrrrr So angry and a bit shaken and cross that this has ruined my weekend. Early night tonight so I can at least enjoy my LR tomorrow.
Sorry to hear that Koala very worrying for you. What stopped them getting in? Have a good run tomorrow.
good luck everyone racing and Molly doing a Tri !! Mad!
Shades completed her 50 miles today!! In all weathers by the sound of it!
Well done Shades!! Cant wait to hear the report!
Good luck today Molly
