Thanks Wacky, that's' very kind! You're right, I've got get myself out for a long run at the weekend and also need to put an earlier goal in my diary. Hopefully, come Sunday eve, I'll be back to my non-jittery self after having gotten rid of my very guilty conscience!
Grant & Lard, thanks, yes I suppose it's going in the right direction. It sure feels to be getting harder but if I'm honest, I just haven't been disciplined enough and with Xmas being so close, that willpower will be tested to the max.
The thing is, 6 months ago I was a stone lighter and I could really really see the difference in my running & pace. There's this 'racing weight' calculator (though can't quite remember by whom at the moment), for various distances and apparently I ought to be 7 1/2 stone to run my best marathon!!! Oh well....
Lard, Rome marathon, that sounds fantastic! I'm doing Milton Keyes but somehow this doesn't have the same ring to it How's your training coming along?
Anyway, 2 weeks to go.... let's see what we all can do till then eh
Nice one, Paul. PinkBug .... how about it Pyjama Girl - brilliant. Please would you give me that 'proverbial' kick up the bum.... I'm having a terrible week and everything else (mainly Xmassy things) seems to take over at the moment, argh!!
Uggghh. Seem to be having a complete lapse of confidence this week and starting to wonder whether I'm going to bite off more than I can chew! Training's gone somewhat doollalah with Xmas coming up and I need a serious kick up the bum!
WackyRacer - sorry your Garmin didn't seem to work with the charger, that's very odd. I've got a 305 and it really worked brilliantly.
