I'm trying to stick to four runs a week slinger but September has been a little slack. Will make a real effort during October as I want to be in the habit of regular running before it gets cold and wet.
I guess evening races disappear this time of year. Maybe next year look in advance as there are plenty of evening races in the summer.
Taunton marathon Grendel, not sure they have an Exeter marathon? I know they have a half, will have to look. Taunton is in April but it's a very small field so not sure at the moment. I have my Grizzly ballot entry in for march and would like the hard work training for that to go towards a marathon as I'm 40 next year and when this thread started a marathon was the ultimate goal. Thanks to others on the thread, the goal is unlikely to end at a marathon!
Got new batteries in my head torch and my canal run was pitch black last night so just as well. I did go over on my ankle at one point though so will be a little more careful where I'm putting my feet. It was enough to make me stop for a minute but soon got going again and only a little sore thos morning so lucky escape.
Great 5k time Slinger. I had a few day off after my run last Wednesday, and as we know a couple of days off can soon turn into more......Anyway, the weekend was so bloody hectic with all three kids playing football in various parts of Devon, and Mrs JR and I celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary. Weekend over, and back to the running. Four weeks until the South Molton Struggle, an 8ish mile multi terrain race. Time won't be important but I want to give a good account of myself so sticking to the schedule for the next 4 weeks.
Always a positive side B2B, 50 miles is a huge effort.
Will have a catch up with you all Friday, just crammed in a 5k effort. Warmed up for a mile, had a quick stretch, a couple of strides and went for it. Aimed for 7:30 pace and a pb. Splits were 7:35, 7:37, 7:36 and 6:46 to finish. Scored a new PB of 23:29 and I really was all out over the last quarter mile. It felt like was going up and down on the spot at the end. A mile(ish) warm down for around 5 miles.
