Natty - please feel free to delete me from the list completely.
My running days seem something of the distant path with not even a glimmer of reappearing anytime soon. I have to put up with no hip exercies so basically am doing swiming 3x per week with a pull buoy ( arms only). Last night I did 40 lengths 5 mins faster than I used to be able to do 32. A great imorovement, I feel, in 4 weeks.
Anyway moving along, since I am no longer a runner, will not be in Paris and due to some heavy heavy sh1t happenng in personal life I have decided to stop lurking here.
I still love you all. And Orbutt I want that hug next time I see you!
I am more than slightly jealous of everyones plans for next year. It is now 10 weeks since I ran, and it doesn't look like I will be back out there any time soon. This year was all about the big distance, and part of the journey to me completing a 100 miler mid next year. Now sadly all this has changed and my goals for next year have changed significantly. As much as this is boring you, I feel the need to share, so 1- is to get recovered properly, 2 - continue the body composition change ( I dn't much care what I weigh, just the figures to show less BF!) 3 - increase/ continue/improve swimming and cycling 4- once I do get back to running to smash my Half Mara PB. ( I ran my last half marathon in March 2012 in lead upto Paris, PB 1:43:08) . I feel these are all achievable although all require focus.
