Evening all. Been a busy few days trying to get everything ready for my wee trip. After sulking and resting on Wednesday I felt much on thur and did my weights and 5 miles on my TM. Sat I did park run, first time in months. Didn't expect to do anything to be honest as I haven't done any speed work for over a month and had the tail end of that cokd but surprised myself with 20:01. Was delighted with my time for about a min then started telling myself off for not going 2 secs quicker! On Sunday I did a steady 10mlies (8:20mm). i have a half marathon on Sunday and will prob not do anymore running until then, but we have a lot of walking planned and a little volcano to walk up! We have dumbbells and bar bells according to Chris. There all the same to me!
I really dont know how they work out car insurance it just doesnt make sense. I didn put chris on my insurance as its a 2l fiesta when he first pasted his test a few years ago, but after a lot of ear bashing I finally did it and my premium went down ?? You would think a fiesta, being a smaller car would be less than a focus, but then again a fiesta is a bit of a boy racer car! Glad to hear your still getting some good runs although its making me feel guilty about not going tonight now.
Thanks Jen. I was wondering whether to try the half first and if I survive put in for the full, but I guess it would all be sold out if I do that! Thankyou for the tips on acommodation. Which Ultra is it that your wanting to do? I cant believe that they have the xmas faces already...its only november. Last year they came out so late! How was your run? I loved resistance training. Feeling as though I am already loosing some tone since leaving the gym even though I am still trying to keep up some exercises but with free weights instead.
Hows the new house looking Malcs? glad to hear that your entering again. Cant wait to see you jump up and bite your bottom!!!. Thinking about my application last year (written when I was drunk) and the one ive done this year I dont think I will stand a chance to get in as I think it will be too dull!
You will love the gymangela especially if you can go during lunch when its quiet. It use to be really busy when I use to go but I still enjoyed it. Quite nice to people spot inbetween sets!!
I was going to do some free weights tonight and a short run on my treadmill as the weather is pretty lousy and chris doesnt like me to run in the dark, but my cold has taken a turn for the worst so ive decided to rest for another day. Started with a cold on sun pm. Didnt feel unwell with it so I ran on mon and still felt fine. Yesterday I went to the local to watch the fireworks and still felt ok. Today however I have woken up feeling a little drained (despite going to bed an hour early) with a slightly scratchy throat and a heavy head. Decided to be sensible and postpone the exercise until tomorrow....all being well I will wake up in the morning feeling great...I dont do ill very well!
