Afternoon P&Ders. I'm camping in Italy and not had much wifi up to now so have been catching up on the thread. Looks like everyone's training is going well. I've been out most days and managed almost 11 miles yesterday as it was a bit cooler than it's been on other days. Got an email telling me it's only 6 weeks until GNR so need to start upping the miles when I get back.
Afternoon Shadies. Just been catching up on the thread as I'm in Italy and the wifi is a bit sporadic. We're now at a 2nd campsite though which has a speedier connection.
Loved hearing about MF's adventures in the Dordogne. How lovely to see an owl on your run.
Hope BG is enjoying Sri Lanka. And hope Shades' foot is OK for this w/end.
Weather hear is hot but I've been running most days. Just means having to get up v early. Longest so far was almost 11 miles yesterday. We're staying on Lake Garda so every run has been by the lake. Am wishing I'd taken a 2nd pair of running shoes now.
Been lurking and not had much time to post as kids off school and trying to fit in work and runs. Track session tonight just about finished me off. 1x1000m, 2x800m, 2x400m and then a couple of 400m on the grass to warm down. Had to stop off at the garage on the way home to buy lots of chocolate to recover and unfortunately those 'duo' sized bars were cheaper than the usual sizes...
Keith - I'd avoid any 'bimbles' until you have seen the physio! Hope you recover soon.
Well done Scott - not raced with deer before but there was a Doberman dog in my race in Regents Park at the w/end who wouldn't stop chasing one of the male runners. The poor guy (who was probably going for around 35 mins) had to stop in the end to stop the dog from chasing him! (NB - I was running too slowly to see this myself but heard afterwards).
LFR and Shazmo - sorry to hear about your PFs. And there I was beginning to think there was a distinct lack of injuries around. What are Stassburg socks?
Chicksta - you manage to pack in some impressive millage without doubles then. Must bode well for your marathon. The up to 55 plan is the biggest millage I've ever done - not sure my body would cope with more!
Did a 5 mile tempoish run last night and then 8 miles easyish tonight. Finding it harder to fit in with the kids off now.
