Chicksta - you can keep STRAVA private so people you want on there can see your routes.
AOH D33, Cape Wrath Challenge week, Dirty 30, Dales Trail 30, Snowdonia Mara and a few halves and parkruns. Would be nice to better my half PB (1:55:19 ) 1000 miles in 2016 2016 k in 2016 100 miles/month
BR - "beat as many people as I can in anything I take part in" (BR told me to put that) He likes to be competitive.
Chicksta: Hamburg (17 April) and Prague (8 May) marathons - as close to 3:30 as possible and hopefully a consistent performance in both races
Emzap get back to a sub 25 min 5 km. Run 1678 km (I think that was Pammie's 20.16 miles a week)
Hilly - get back into marathon shape for April 3rd and do the best I can. Get back under 20 mins for 5k, back under 70 mins for 10 miles and enjoy new races.
Hope to see you there Jools. What sort of time would your strategy bring you in? I remember the only other time I did this race we were very close together - not these days though! You've come on a long way!
Haha alehouse he just told me them. I have exercise induced asthma, but normally affects me worse in summer than winter due to pollen etc. I've not taken inhalers for a long while. I can't imagine a doctor saying give up exercise these days for any type of asthma.
Sound very cold WP. Not worth risking injury if too dangerous. Enjoy the rest day!
emzap - your reaction to the nut sounds quite severe - take care and hope you feel better soon!
Wabo - I can relate to the hard getting up at 5! I'm not looking forward to next week back at work when I'll most probably have to do the same a few times.
LMH - the conditions were lovely for running. I started with gloves on, which came off after a mile and then the sun came out and I was right toasty.
I have to admit to having very tight calves this morning though, so had to stop and stretch several times. I've used the foam roller since coming home and they feel better now.
