I should probably start training for the 1st Dec event, but will likely bike/run instead. I'll be totally unprepared! #GoldenBoots.

SD personal trainer friend told me it was important to go for a short leg stretch run the day before just to reawaken the muscles before the big day just 1k is apparently beneficial . Sought be worth it sat IF you can fit it in?
Worked for me I have to say .

Thanks Ali, that does sound like a good idea considering i havent ran since last Thursday.

Did you get your Trianglia sweatshirt yet? Picked mine up the other day, they are really good.

I always mean to do a quick jog the day before a race (after a taper/time off), but never do.

Just get out and get things moving.

My 10k race on sundays been postponed due to flooding, the pictures of the park where it was being held looked like it would have been a 10k swim not run. Going to try and go for a longish ride / run brick to compensate on Sunday before the start of the Fink see how I get on, I was thinking 3hr Bike / 1 hr Run or is this a silly idea?

See how you feel TB. If it's all low intensity you'll be fine. Albeit tired on Sunday.

Have you cracked the magic 20m 5km yet? I may attempt it next Sat am before the PSOF xmas bash.

TB all depends on how long your last brick was .. if you have not done one before or for a long time then I would shorten the run and enjoy the bike

Weather down south has been lovely today, which is somewhat different to yesterday. But think the gales are coming back for the weekend. Think the long bike ride might need to be postponed

Cat - No not yet, I haven't tried yet though, plan was to give it a go on a parkrun next weekend.

Meldy - Last bick was a duathlon - 5k run 21k bike 5k run, so not very long, but quick (ish).

23/11/2012 at 16:31

20m 5k is bloody good.  My best so far is 22:30.

Weather not too bad today, but tonight and tomorrow they forecast biblical rain and winds again.  The organisers of the cross-country half I'm doing are adamant about not cancelling, but we'll see.

Anyone running/racing in this weather this weekend .... take care and have fun!

Yep - hope the weather holds out for us all. Sunday league XC is typically -3 deg at the start, though this year it might be -3in of rain!

Morning all

So, tomorrow sees my last event of the year, Norwich half marathon.

28mph winds, 8 degrees, maybe rain. What do i wear?

I want to wear my club running vest but feel it will be too cold on its own. So, running tshirt underneath it or long sleeve base layer under it?

When i have ran recently and its been a similar temp i've worn a thin running jacket but always feel a bit hot after a few miles.

I'm also worried my bum looks too big in my shorts
