mr P I would love to go to New York, especially just before Christmas, but its so expensive. Would be an amazing trip though.
Mc Hilly im completely in agreement with you on that one, never tried an alcoholic drink whilst on the run...but the thought of it turns my stomach.
So sorry to hear about you having to drop out of cheddar feral bob but I think you did the right thing. Think its so hard for runners to stop mid race and instead they continue and cause more injury and illness.
hi Angela I have the same idea about my ultra...just to finish/get around...and mines only 31 miles! My legs always feel better towards the end of my run the day after a long run too. Good luck with your 10k this weekend And your marathon next weekend.
thanks Malcs my training has gone surprisingly well so far, quite pleased with myself, never thought I would just plod around 25 miles in a training run. Did a race last monday aswell (3 days after my 25 miler) and managed to come second lady without much effort. It turned out to be all off road (only found out a few hours before...just intime to pack my trail shoes). Glad you managed to get some good runs in whilst you was on holiday. To still get a sub 20 after tying your laces is fantastic In parkrun.
Ouch RR that sounds like a nasty accident.
Well done hans c on completing your first iron man...wow, you did amazing and should be proud of yourself. The difference a good bike makes. Chris (husband) has been wanting a new one for a while ready for when he cycles coast to Coast....he's been trying to tell me how important a lighter bike it! What time are you going for at york now?
sorry to hear about the eye rachel, was surgery successful? How long did they advise you to rest for afterwards?
did my last long run this weekend (20 at 8mm...a tad too fast, followed by 10 the following day at 8:50mm)....ive now officially entered taper time!
Thanks Hans for the info on the pram...gona make a note for if the time comes. There seems to be so many out there, but yours sounds fantastic.
Hi Reikirabbit it was fantastic seeing you last week At parkrun, I lovely surprised. I still cant believe that you managed to pick me out from the 300 runners with just the small profile picture to go on. I was hoping that we could have all ran round together but after manoeuvring around some of the runners we had already lost you (which I apologise for) after park run nature called so it was a quick dash to the toilets so we couldnt stick around to say buy. Sorry to hear about VLM, but fingers crossed you will get a club place. I did york last year and struggled round it. I didnt think it was as flat as they made out but then afterwards I wondered if it was due to being ill/not feeling quite right that I found it tougher than I should. Dont worry about the hill at the end...the downhill finish afterwards to cheering crowds makes up for it! Well done on your long runs. Hope you get your injury list completed.
sticky 88 leeds 10k sounded like a nightmare, nothing worse than coming to an abrupt holt 1k into a race because people are walking in front of you. It happened yo me at GNR and I had started in the second pen!
hi Angela well done on your 30 mileS on sat followed by the 5 yesterday, you must be so excited now for your ultra.
Wow Malcs, 19:02 is so quick, the holidays obviously done you some good! On the baby front it was a comment about me and Angela....but I think having poppy has put chris off the idea of having children just yet....bought me a little more time . Shame about the photo...will try and upload it again later . I'm quite looking forward to the ultra now ive done a few runs over 20 miles with another 6-8 mile run the following morning.mi have done them mainly at marathon pace but haven't really been doing any speed work as I had a tight hamstring and ITB. I'm hoping that im on top of that now though and can start doing alittle more speed work again this week.
well done mc hilly on your new PB...youve completley smashed your previous PB, congratulations.
Thankyou feral bob. 46 miles sounds tough. Whats the furthest that youve run before? Good luck this weekend with Cheddar...sounds like youve been doing some proper carbo loading
thanks Hans I would def recommend the coastal run, its such a fantastic event. It does tend to sell out within about 6- 10 hours so you just have to watch out for the entries to open. 1:45 for a hilly 13.1 miles in training sounds great. Good luck for your half iron man. Well done on your buggy park run PB. What buggy do you use And would you recommend it?
hopefully see you both at thunder run next year
I normally do my long run on a friday, but Angela is coming to visit so were planning on running to park run, around park run and then back tomorrow morning instead, roughly 22-24 miles. Feels strange not running on a friday morning...ive ended up entering two races instead; major stone half in a few weeks time and guy folks 10 in nov.
