Oh Hope you can revive it, LMH. The course was Mr Chick's idea. He watched a programme were a hospital sent their nurses to such classes as they get more and more frequently attacked by drunken and irrational patients. And I read about it in a book so we both fancied a go. It's a good technique to have at the ready. A bit like car insurance. You have it in case of an accident but you hope you'll never need it.
2:55 and comfy are not really two things I'd put into one sentence Sub 3 is just so mind-bogglingly fast for an old bird like me
Great run there, Carl. Hope your MP run went week. The weather is truly miserable
Nice to have bagged that last long one, Stewart.
I did 16 yesterday with 2x 5 @ 80% in there. The first lot was 8:10 pace but the second lot was much slower @ 8:35. Anyhoo, it felt pretty good and I was not half as knackered as after the past 2 long runs which were @ 70% and much slower on average.
Only 6 easy in the dark and wet today before heading out to a 4hr Israeli self defence seminar. Knackered now
Just back from a 4hr Krav Maga seminar. That's a self defence technique from the Israeli army. Hard work although it's mostly about de-escalation and how to get out of a potentially dangerous situation. I've learned a lot but I'm also quite bruised now.
In order to keep up with my March challenge I got up at 6am for a wet 6 miler before the course
Great stuff, Angela . Over on Minni's thread 1:36 was the entry ticket to a sub 3:30 marathon. Nice work
Another strong run, Tim. Awesome when 8:10 becomes easy pace
Ran 6 miles at 6am (in fact 5am due to the stupid clock change ). It was pitch black and rather wet but strangely warm (about 10 degrees) and then did a 4hr Krav Maga seminar (Israeli self defence). Cor, 'twas hard work. But deffo worth doing despite the bruises
I'm shattered. I ran 6 miles in the pouring rain and wind and then did a 4hr Krav Maga intro seminar (Israeli self defence). I'm black and blue but I learned a lot about de-escalation techniques and how to improve your chances to get out of dangerous situations.
Yesterday's lyrics: Bowie's Rock'n Roll Suicide. Great track. Great album. Great artist. One of my faves
