Another Ironman journey
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.
Morning tribeearly shift for me today so I shall make amends by going to the gym on the way home
SD Yes got my hoody, very pleased with it, should keep me warm pre and post race.
Ay lad! Still aprarently it's sunny down south through it said so in the red riding drama thing the other year. I was funny cause it was true.
Are all are southern gang members safe at the moment? It's not looking good.
Lovely day in the Tyne Valley up North today
Still no training, ironman to fatman is still occuring
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).
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!
SD - don't worry about how your bum looks, you don't have to look at it!
as to what to wear, it is really personal, running jackets always make me feel excessively warm, unless it is below zero. You will probably be ok with a t-shirt under your vest, but if there is serious wind chill you might want the long sleeves.
good luck and have fun
I was a bit concerned when the organisers sent me some wide load stickers with my race number.
Just been out for a 1 mile loosener. 2 degrees here this morning & did that in a t-shirt & vest. Was ok after a few mins so that is what i will wear tommorow.
Quite excited now, my first standalone half marathon & potentially the furthest i've ever run non stop, by a whole 3 miles
Shame i'm still necking the lemsips but hey ho
SD - well personally I always wear a vest in races and despite being freezing cold on the start line I'm always hot after a mile. However - if you are worried about the cold I would go for a t-shirt under the vest.
Word or warning - I've done Norwich about 5 times. It's usually between 0 and 5 degrees on the start line. I've seen loads of runners in expensive jackets, hats and gloves at the start. They then get too hot and throw them in a hedge a few miles in!
