In most conditions one pair is sufficient, I sometimes put 2 pairs on when the temp dips near freezing or when wind chill is a factor. Superior to any of the chunkier padded gloves I've tried. Thin enough to allow operation of Garmins, head torches etc.
Good to see Dids back to join me in the senior codger ranks. We probably need one or two from Dull, Running Bear, Tom to return to enable a Saga styled thread day out.
Dan A.. as elsewhere sorry you didn't get what you deserved. If the build up was similar to your golden day in Barca it is something of a puzzle. Still, keeps your marathon performance graph nice & wobbly
TT.. cracking session there. If you have indeed got a spare tyre then your thighs must be rubbing together so those intervals were more impressive than at first glance
Nice sessions from ES & PP too.
Welcome back to TJK.
SL.. mighty fine work on the treadie. Have you got one at home or do you have to use the local gym?
RB.. good news on the relocation, should save you a bit on petrol as well as getting some timber off.
TR.. hope you're all fixed when the test run comes around. Best of luck with your choice of Muttley.
Charlie.. our low key XC race was 3 laps on the local Riverbank. On each lap we had to run through a herd of cows so the opportunity for puns was immense. I ran out of them when I couldn't think of one on the hoof
Gradually building the miles again post-hols, 5, 4+7.5, 5, 10m so far this week.
Quiet on here yesterday/today, 10m on the treadie early doors today followed by a club 5m XC race to give me 15m for the day. Rain thoughtfully abated 20 mins before the latter so just a strong/chilly westerly wind and a lot of mud to contend with otherwise. Doesn't sound like we had as much disruption as in the south, much sympathy if you had to endure it.
Admirable formula work Charlie! Though if I may scientifically paraphrase TR it is perhaps easier to simply put each dorsum & plantar in front of each other as often as possible. This ensures that you do the locomotion.
At the end of my last post I did say 'never a dull moment here' in reference to my home town. Arrived back in town around 6.30pm on Tuesday to find this scene at the crossroads about 40 metres from my house..
