Thanks CB69! Really looking forward to it. I'm not sure how much internet access there'll be but if I can I'll pop by and check in. It looks like we're going to have a lot of snow! I am taking some running stuff with me but I don't know if I'll get a run in, I'm not too worried either way.
Well, I did my run tonight with splits of 8:47, 8:56 and 8:40 for the 3 miles at half-marathon pace, which I'm pleased with as it felt better than I expected... my legs felt so tried by the end of yesterday's run and this morning that I wasn't sure I'd have much zip.
And as it's nearly the end of the month and I won't be running tomorrow, I have a monthly total for you: 149.6 miles (should've run an extra 0.4!) which is my highest ever monthly mileage! Not bad for a short month. So thank you all very much as you deserve a lot of the credit: I would definitely have skipped some of those runs if it wasn't for the thought that I'd have to confess to you!
Hanster, good luck for tomorrow and do let us know how you get on, I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you.
Morning all! And what a lovely day it is. Anyone out for a run today? I'll be doing my run after work today, 5 miles with 3 miles at half marathon pace. At the moment my legs are still feeling a bit tired from last night's run, but hopefully they'll improve during the day as I move around. And on that note, I'd better go do some work...
Thanks! I thought it was about time I had a change since my previous one was from my first 10k race.
Well done on your run, Hanster. I know you said you found it tough but those are some amazing splits as far as I'm concerned! There's still plenty of time for all the training to take effect and as you say, some runs just feel tougher than others. Now go treat yourself to a nice glass of water
My run was also a bit of a toughie this evening, not really surprising after a busy day at work. I agree, 10 miles in the dark isn't the most fun! Though it could have been worse, it was a nice evening for it, it just dragged a bit. I was going quite slowly though: avg pace was 11 min/miles, which started as a conscious effort to keep the pace easy, but towards the end felt quite fast enough!
