Canter- thanks for the tips on the 5 miler and well done on the Asics thing! That sounds sooo great. I have wished I went for it myself but at the same time... not enough time.
Carl- good info on the Asics day! It sounds like, if nothing else, a pretty brutal training session?!
Nell- nice running from you... really decent runs, are you training for anything just now remind me?
I only ran 4 days this week as one day had a really sore knee so did a gym sesh and spinning instead. It's still a tad niggly. But tonight I did just over 9 miles- longest I've done in a couple of months so happy days
Carter- how did you get on on your torch run? Sounds fun!
washwood- nice to meet you Good HM time and sure you're capable of a sub 4 marathon easily enough from that!!! I'd be surprised if not! This is a great thread.
PS- you can talk about Xmas to me How are you feeling now? Got rid of the rattley chest?
Carl- maybe you are where I was a month or two ago. The last couple of weeks have been quite consistent for me and I'm surprised at one thing- the fitness returns as quick as it went. So that's good.
Nell- impressed at you for getting up and going when you woke up early. If that happens to me I definitely hide under the covers till I fall asleep again.
BK- what race you doing this weekend and what is it like?
Last week I had another good consistent week of 5 days running. Quite happy with this as it is back to something like normal I am managing my schedule better now.
So hopefully back to a 50 minute 10k at the start of December to put me in a good mood. I also have a 5 miler coming up in a couple of weeks- what should I expect from that? Just a tad quicker than 10k pace?
Yeah I think if I do Manchester I won't do Edinburgh. The reason I did not fancy so much doing Edinburgh next year is that it's during another school placement period. It's really tiring being on placement so I might not fancy doing a marathon at the same time.
Lol PS yes I am one of those dollies Well actually not quite, I am a team leader for promotions so do a bit more organisational stuff like sort out the correct equipment and drive the van to and from events (white van woman!). And it's mostly food and drink events rather than very glamorous stuff sadly!!! You have a good HM PB, I know you'll make your marathon target soon enough, PS. What is this about you relocating as mentioned by Carter... did I miss that?
Carter- OK I think I should bite the bullet and just do Manchester. It looks good for route and I like the city.
Sean- I see your missus is doing Manchester- does she have any idea what kind of time to aim for for a first foray into marathon running? Will you help guide and advise her?
