Thanks for that swittle. I am waiting for new stock to arrive as it seems virtually impossible to get Alpkit from their website..may have to go for an inferior product in the meanwhile.
Great racing from Nayan and Lily, and excellent report from Lily too. Not liking the idea of being covered in sticky sports drink throughout a race. Lots of glowing from Lily and swittle this week too. Birky, I love the lakes, need to go back there as I'm just realising it's been over 10 years since I was last there.
Me- did a 12 hour day at work today due to parents' evening, but managed to pop out for a 4 mile trot in the beautiful muddy forest. Really helped me to get through the day.
swittle, which head torch do you use? I am looking to upgrade my ancient crap one. Cheap is good
Me- Monday hills session. Cut short on my warm-down run by taking a super-clumsy tumble onto the tarmac. Bloody elbow and hand and a bruised, grazed leg was the worse of it and none of it feels particularly sore now. I am truly crap at running / seeing at night
Happy belated birthday swittle By glow do you mean sweat?
Gregry- agreed, Fullers is a nice ale. I am not generally an ale or stout drinker but both are excellent post- long run / race.
Me- about 8.5 miles slowly this morning because my legs still feel pretty tired and sore after last Sunday's racing. I am surprised they are still suffering but I guess my body's just not used to that distance
I was helping with the beginners' group again tonight at the club. 23 of them in the pissing rain, not a bad turnout and they did around 3.5 miles following a run 8 minutes / power walk 4 minutes programme. Pretty good progress
Nice PB dank-art and some great running reports from Red (Victorian fog) and swittle, as ever. Good luck with the run Greg. JT- Guinness is the most ideal recovery drink it seems to me. Absolutely bloody delicious and don't forget it's good for you. When I was pregnant with my son (who is nearly 14) I was advised to drink it for iron I think the world of department of health advice, has changed a little now ...
I felt like I'd been run over by a double decker yesterday so I gave the usual Monday hills a miss, and ventured out for a tentative easy 4 miles today with new running buddy from work. It was pleasant and relaxed.
