Well done Red - I never doubted you would meet your targets. You have had one exceptional year, lady, I'm proud of you.
Weather here is not so good, minus temps and fog, so tonight's dog training was cancelled. It's now around a month since I lost my appetite, just don't fancy food at all so guess it's time for a visit to the doc.
Agree with the orange juice, water and salt for long runs, I use that too (if I take anything at all with me).
John is away again this week for work but yesterday entered the 14k Thames Marathon open water swim to be held on 6 August 2017. I would like to do that too but not next year as I need to take care of the dogs while John is gone. Won't risk putting them in kennels after we did that for the Channel swim in 2012 and our lovely Oz died there on the day we were due back. People say lightning doesn't strike twice but I'm not willing to risk it.
Still cold and frosty here but not as bad as yesterday so I will run this afternoon with the pooches.
Welcome Delta Dawn. I don't take any energy boosters, so can't advise you on that.
Our Redhead has completed over 100 marathons and I have 45 behind me but am no longer allowed to run long distances as I have had both hips replaced. I am primarily a triathlete and find it more satisfying training for 3 different sports instead of just running.I am also in an Aqua-biking course at our local pool and really enjoying it. Also involved in dog training with our two dogs.
Our dog club's exams were today, very successful, 8 dog and handler teams competed and all passed in spite of the cold and frosty weather, which made it very difficult for the dogs in tracking.
