Tutu - are you doing the Eccup 10 next Sunday? Was thinking of doing it and entering on the day. Would only plan to go v slow and use as training run for Coastal Run - needing to up my mileage in prep for start of Newcastle Marahton training build up.
Greetings from sunny Greece. Arrived here late evening yesterday. Day recovering today but have managed a few lengths in the pool and a walk into town. Restaurant owner next door to our apartment offered me a job last night when he heard I still hadnt got one - not sure he was 100% serious but will be putting it down on my signing on form as one of the things I have done to look for work (have to submit 6 things a fortnight!)
Tutu - did you get a PM through this site from someone called Myles ref Round Britain Relay run?
Smeagol - sorry to hear re redundancies - hope that your job is safe.
Tutu - great to hear you've got your wedding dress sorted. It must be so exciting.
Chi - good to hear from you. Good luck for Jayne Tomlinson 10K. I wonder if Tutu is running it? I would have been doing it if I wasn't on hols. Was entered for it last year but it was just after I was injured so in the end I wasn't able to run it.
Susan - go easy on the rose!
Martin - hope you are soon back to full strength. Cant wait for the 22nd to hear all about Comrades.
Did my usual Thursday morning run just before leaving for Greece - am quite surprised that all the dancing at the Jovi shows seems to have really boosted my fitness - was able to keep up with the fast guys for the first 5 miles which is unheard of - a couple of them even commented how much faster I was running. Hoping I can manage to keep up the speed for the Coastal Run in a couple of weeks.
Morning all. Gorgeous day her in Yorkshire - quite hot & sunny - lets hope its a little cooler in 2 weeks time! Did anyone watch the Dispatches programme last night about London marathon? A friend from running club texted my whilst I was out saying they had spotted me. I had recorded it on Sky+ but as it clashed with something else I missed the first few mins. She texted me at 8:04 so I am guessing I must have been on in the bit I missed - typical!
Definitely doing my long run tomorrow. Hamstring feels quite tight - taper madness??? Am going for a short walk with the OH & a friend so hopefully that will stretch it out a bit.
Is anyone doing the Rising Sun 5M next week? I am in the North East for my sisters birthday so think I am going to do it. I need to do 8-10 re London taper so will probably run to and from my parents to race and then do race at nice steady pace.
