It's grim up north isn't it Cake ? I took the mutts out for a walk this morning and it was so cold I almost needed gloves. A big change in temperature from first thing in the morning to the afternoon to last thing at night I'm finding.
Really cold yesterday morning when I went to work. At lunchtime I went out for a run and put on a base layer due to how cold it was in the morning. It was really nice yesterday lunchtime so I was red hot.
Lilytoo - the families and dogs will soon disappear as the weather gets colder. Which part of the Peak District are you in ? I'm in Sheffield.
Ted - well done on the run, let's hope the niggle is well and truly sorted.
JT - do you always have such eventful runs ??
Birkmyre - glad to still be part of us ?
SB - you were slower today because you are erm...drinking beer ?? I see your boys are flying high in 11th position now, nose bleed time. We've got a trip to Spuz tomorrow which will be interesting to see how we cope against a premiership team.
2 short. easy runs for me the last couple of days as I'm still slowly getting back in to it. Off for a lunchtime jaunt down by the river shortly.
PS - Yep, Carl and i have been here right from the start nearly 2 years ago now. If I can't run 20 easy miles there's no chance I can run a marathon ! Crap news about the PF, take it easy and get the stretches done.
Canter - great run on a hilly route with little training. As you say, funny old game this running can be sometimes.
Nell - I love carbs too, thats why I need to lose a few pounds ! Not long to go now, how are you feeling ?
An easy run for me on Friday and today and the legs are slowly getting back into some sort of shape. That's 4 runs from me this week which is the first time in ages I've managed that. I'm just glad that I'm getting back out there again
Nell - I'm currently on a high fat low carb diet and have basically cut out rice, bread, pasta and potatoes, sweets, chocolates and takeaways. 2 weeks in and I'm doing ok, not feeling too hungry and, as yet, have kept to my plan. However (there's always a however with me), my diet is for 6 days of the week only with Saturday being a 'I don't care today I'm going to eat and drink as much as I want' day, including beers. I haven't weighed myself yet but the clothes are feeling loser already. One of the side affects is feeling a bit lethargic which only lasts a few weeks apparently. So, just short runs for me during this period.
6 consecutive days running and hardly any taper. Sounds a tough plan to me but one that could reap high rewards on race day. Enjoy your day off !
