Running "on water" now thats a great opportunity to maintain your fitness
Sounds like you really enjoyed the cruise. An Indian Ocean cruise we did some years ago was great but boat was not ok for running!
That's good news then Mick also being permitted to push more
Glad I was too late to see Awsies duck poser, I would have ducked out anyway.
At this end training has only been ticking over, just enough to keep wheels and legs in motion. Found a folding bike at a carboot for sale so I bought it. Done around 7 outings around the park recently in addition to some walk/runs.
A week spent at G.Yarmouth was marred by a midweek clutch burnout on the A12. Luckily after a great recovery service from AA involving 4 different towing vans/lorry, one on Wednesday back to Hemsby and 3 on Saturday to Sheff garage.
Good job car was still under warranty and we were surprised the i20 was delivered back to our house by the Hyundai agent the following Tuesday.
Also had a bit of bother with the second FR 305, during a walk/run the timer kept stopping even though it was well charged up. Anyhow, Garmin peeps sent out a new FR 610 which I used for first time today. It looks like this one will be okay, I am impressed with the touchscreen idea. A steady 3 miles with 1 minute stops for leg swings after mile 1 and 2.
Mile laps for walk/runs 12.39, 12.18 and 11.53. Not a big deal but this will have to do until I can improve eventually.
Encouraging words from Ceal, JB6, Nzc and Columba.....thanks for that
Received very sad news that a friend (non-runner) of mine suddenly developed breathing difficulties yesterday and died in hospital this morning.. Quite a shock to take in.
Had to get out after that and do some running ! The replacement Garmin had arrived so it was a good chance to test it out.Set off with intention of another 3 mile ramble. Oh dear this one was so sensitive it kept switching off and on and lap times all over the place. Settings would need to be checked before next outing I'm afraid.
Then the training centre on pc upstairs wouldn't marry with this fresh 305 fr. Doh!
Still here! Only reading the thread but a lot of amazing running and stories to keep me occupied and rather envious of the successes Congrats to all respective runners/racers.
Meanwhile I am still stuck with the depression effects. At least I have found out that tired and aching legs has nothing to do with the running. So now I am gonna keep on trying at this low level of training until something gives,but don't intend to give up yet!
Like today ran/walked 3 miles which seems to be my limit right now. Garmin 305 still on way to me, so they tell me. For now times are rough using ordinary watch each mile....13min, 14min, 13 min.
I know one thing it really gets harder after the age of 76.
