Excellent stuff all, and killer mileage for JT, swittle and DD in particular
I did a club league race this morning - Barking 5k. Came in at around 24.50 which I'm happy enough with as I was not expecting a PB after recent eating / drinking excesses, and I felt like I was going to puke most of the way round :-/
Swittle- I'm down to do the Pleshey HM on 21st September, which is also part of our club grand prix league. I'm having a (fairly minor) op on 9th September though, so I'll have to see how my recovery will be.. Also I'm doing the Garmin Kingston 16 mile in October
Thanks for the wishes. I've been super busy again. Back at work on Tuesday (boo!) and two new kittens for my birthday have kept me busy. Dotty and Daisy are adorable
I've managed to fit in a few runs- an easy 7 miles on my birthday (Monday), a cheeky 4 miles in the forest in my lunch break yesterday, then tempo in the forest with the club tonight. I need to get some longer runs in cos I've realised I'm doing a HM at the end of September and I don't think I've done more than 7 miles for at least a month or more...
Hello you lot. Got some catching up to do but looks like there is some impressive running going on here- ultras, mileage swittling, JT, DD..
I got back from France yesterday. Excellent holiday despite the most rubbish weather seen in that region for over 10 years. In true English style, we braved the swimming pool, shivering, in the rain and wind Stayed in Barry Sheen's old trailer in Le Mans on the way home on Saturday night, which was just a unique experience. Eating lots of camembert and bread, and drinking lots of the excellent, cheap wine, featured highly during our holidays too. I ran most days- found a lovely 3.5 mile loop around local fields and through paths with just sunflowers and some wind turbines for miles around, and a field of sheep who never failed to be surprised to see me, even when I was doing several loops. Some days, the boy joined me on his bike for a chat, which was an unexpected pleasure. It's amazing what 9 days of no wifi can do for a 13 year old boy's social skills
Off for a run in a bit. It's Monday, so it should be hills, but I might treat myself to an easy run, as it's my birthday
