I don't like the sound of having to hang around with no warm clothes in the cold. I get so chilled after races. My clubmates laugh at me as I've taken to donning two hoodies, one of which is made of furry material and is the warmest jumper in the world. Often adding a gilet on top. Yuck.
On a half marathon notes can anyone recommend any brilliant Autumn half marathons to do? The one I wanted to do is sold out already. I'm thinking flattish and fast as I'd like to break 1:30 this year. We could travel from Derbyshire so a Northern one might be ok. Or Midlands. Or South. Probs not Scotland though.
37. Started running 9 years ago after giving up fags but three pregnancies in last 8 years plus taking ages to get back to it each time (plus piling on 5 stone every pregnancy) have meant a lack of consistency. Last baby was in July 2014 so hopefully training will be more consistent now.
Lovely weather for running today but ran the local parkrun (which is hilly and muddy) in 20:35 for first lady so pleased with that. Then fully fell over in an ankle deep puddle in the middle of some ploughed fields on the way home. Drenched with mud. Pride comes before a fall clearly.
Long run tomorrow when hopefully it will be less wet.
They had an issue at Brueton on social media complaining about someone (apparently obnoxiously) shouting "Track!" at slow people to get out of their way . We've been ripping the piss out of the person we suspect it was ever since.
