mamafox - re Chapel - decided not to in the end, would love to have done it but far too many things unknown to go wrong. Was a really nice building in a great location. Maybe revisit something similar in a few years time. We've decided to stick with local properties for now.
Well done on the race, that damn Jocelyn!
I wouldn't do any speedwork Big_g, easy to give advice though
Did a nice 9 miler last night & decided for the last quarter mile of each mile I'd up the pace which was fun as I've been just easy running. Quite enjoyed it.
I follow his blog and love the way he is completely open about all his training. Try looking up Mo's training paces etc ! ,he's on Fetch and it just amazes me how many miles he racks up. Good luck to him in Glasgow.
That's great big_g, not a too shabby time for taking it vary easy either. Hopefully no flare ups in the next few days.
sk ,that sounds a good week of races you're doing. 1st in all of them so Far as well. I did a 10k on sand a couple of years ago and just wore normal trainers, was quite hard sand with the odd soft bit. Bare feet probably good on soft stuff.
Iain - good luck with the diet, I keep meaning to go for an mot at the docs, haven't been for years.
slowly getting back into a more normal routine now, 31 miles last week & 32 this week. Really nice 13 this morning to go pick up the car after a wedding last night.
Need to sort out a tdf plan for next weekend, British Grand Prix as well as the tennis & World Cup. Sport overload, the wife isn't the best impressed with it all.
Woke up just before 5 this morning and was wide awake so decided to head out. I had planned to run anyway as I had to go pick up the car from last night...about 6 miles away by the shortest route. Ended up doing a nice easy 14 and back home for 8.
I've not run that early in a long time and forgotten how wonderfully peaceful and deserted it is.
Velcro strap is much better Shades, I'd been eyeing the velcro one up for a while and when my original one broke that's when I changed. Wished I'd have done it ages ago. Much more comfy. When your not wearing it just loop it back on itself as if you're wearing it so it doesn't get twisted & also stops it picking up any muck.
Trying to do min of 100 miles a month, managed all so far but only on 49 for June so will be tight this month but think I'll get there.
