A rough sounding marathon that was judging by your description. Well done on sticking it out, the warm weather would make it feel harder.
No, we don't want this thread to waste away do we !? As long as there is a post or two every day to keep it alive, all well and good
Sorry I didn't reply to your question. I had done 69 parkruns up to then.
JJ, Sorry to hear about the hamstring prob. It is really annoying when anyinjury occurs at our age as it tends to takle longer to regain back fitness. I am well wary of my vulnerability of more easily being affected by possible niggles or injuries in view of the age factor.
Another 5k Parkrun under the belt with my 70th last Saturday.
9.49, 9.53, 10.01 and 1.18 shows how I tended to lose the initial pace and tired quite easily. Anyway a time of 31m.05s was reasonable. 72nd out of 104 Age 60.97 % No other over 70 contenders this time.
On a different tack, the chap converting tape films has finished first batch of St. Petersburg and Moscow. A good job he did of them too, in both MP4 and DVD formats. Now doing the Indian Ocean ones next.
Stewart's train journey would be interesting I bet. Though I know South Island is more mountainous and maybe more interesting , I haven't been there but the map gives me the idea!
Nice one getting your goal of under 60 mins for the 10k distance. Now you will be aiming higher......and then higher again
I agree with our other forumites, please don't give in. As Ceal says, if you could try out a bit of running at a later time in day. I also would find early dark hours would be a no-no. In the meantime think of a new goal, try some 5k park runs if you have any Parkruns within easy reaching distance.
No change today for me, merely a 3 mile lake lap again. 12.23, 11.28, 11.27. Legs felt tired with knees aching a little but I didn't want to give way to my legs protests!
In the past we have accumulated a lot of camcorder tapes basically holidays abroad but we don't have the analogue camcorder anymore as it broke down and was irrepairable. So just lately have been trying to find a way of copying footage from tapes to DVDs. Today I have found someone who has offered to do the job for us at a modest cost. Might take a long time but it'll be nice to look at the times we had in Russia, Kenya,Zanzibar,Seychelles,U.S,states etc. Good job Marg was persuaded not to get rid of them when she was clearing house out some time ago!
We are now at our time of life when we feel reluctant to travel as far. So filmed memories will be treasured by us now
