Minni - the Sunday is my birthday and we're planning lunch out somewhere, so I'll probably not be the most popular if I try and sneak a race in! And definitely not a fell race (you know me and hills!). But we're there for a fortnight, so maybe a run the following weekend...and I might go to Druridge Bay for the parkrun on the Saturday. But yes, definitely dinner....I'll text you at some point when we are there and we can sort something out
Minni - sounds like you and Bro had a brilliant time, and that is mega mileage! Really good to hear you sounding positive about your running.
kiwi - good to see you
AA / Barry / 2old / Chick - some good sessions I see, great to read those....
O4S - enjoy the US trip
Well I have done some running, although it feels like I shouldn't call it that. Nothing faster than 8m/m, and all feeling hard. Also very tired - lots going on at work means my weekday alarm is now set permanently at 4.50am . I'm also in late stages of interview process for a new job, which will be fantastic if I get it but also it's a stressful process. Anyway, I am glad I have killed the Abo idea, just trying to get out and enjoy some plodding.
Minni - P and I are coming up to Northumberland in a couple of weeks - actually less than that, we arrive the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend. It would be great to catch up, maybe do a run - nothing too long though and definitely nothing too fast!
Just popping in to apologise for being awol for ages...unlike AA and her running every day in July (well done for that ) I have logged less than 50 miles this month...combination of my calf niggling (small tear in the soleus muscle), too much work, a cold and a hefty dose of the CNBA fairy
But I have replaced my orthotics and had several painful massages to get rid of scar tissue and will hopefully get back on it. But I have sold my Abo place as I'm not in right frame of mind to stuck into a proper program at the moment!
Right - going to try and have a good read back as I have missed some pages....
Soups - will your blind runner also have to wear a cape?
Can't help you there Slowkoala - I am nowhere near a sub 20 5k let alone sub 40 10k!
Malcs - very exciting to do the GFA entry
Angela - congrats on the race win, just brilliant!....I am jealous as I've never managed that apart from parkruns! A couple of 2nds is as close as I have ever got. I've not seen your trophy, but I really hope it's not as good as the one I got for first F45 in the Diss 10k the other week.....check out this baby
Let's have a bling-off!
I did get a PB in the race too - 42.56. (See SK, nowhere near sub 40!) I think I would have gone a little quicker but I backed off the pace in the last mile as my achilles was starting to niggle - I have the curse of Mr P! It's not been too bad since, just a little stiff in the mornings, but I am OK to run more or less. To be honest I'm not doing too much right now anyway, just looking to build some miles and a few tempo sessions before I start a proper marathon schedule next month.
