Happy Birthday to your mum, Shades! What a great age - great genes to inherit!
11 miles 'general aerobic' this morning. Feel quite tired now, even though I didn't run yesterday. Got 7 miles tomorrow and then long run on Sunday.
Joined a local community gym last night and had an induction where they show you the ropes. I had a go on the treadmill and it only has distance in km which is a pain. Also, I had the speed up to 8km/h which should feel very easy shouldn't it? But I really felt as if it was more like my 5k pace! Not very inspired by the gym but it's only 30'quid a year to join and then a pound each time you use, so worth a try.
Thanks LFR, I should have listened to you. Had a go on the gym's treadie for 10 mins before it closed and wasn't very inspired. Can't believe I did a 20 mile run on one when I last trained for a marathon! No way could I manage that now, they didn't even have anything decent to watch.
Thanks Ruth! I'll tell the kids that you said I can eat all their chocolate
Tim, I've got everything crossed for you for tomorrow. That MRI sounds quite scary, I didn't realise you had to stay in for so long. I think in a lot of ways being injured is more challenging than hard training.
Bad luck Rachel. I remember being sure that my son had broken his arm a couple of years ago but we were sent home by A&E. Two days later I took him back and an Xray showed a fracture - he had to wear a sling for months.
I've wimped out too tonight! It's hailing outside and my kids are fighting so a bit unsure what I would return to if I escape for an hour to do my 7 miles with strides. I've got an induction later with a local community gym. I'm not really a gym person but this one is just 30 quid to join plus a pound a session - so worth a punt in case there are times I can't run outside.
