Big_G - that sound similar to a mate of mine. He challenged me to a pull up competition but he put money on the fact he would beat me. He wagered £20 so i went first, did 16 before i was made to laugh and lost my grip. he started and by 10 he was struggling so he let go and said he had hurt his shoulder. Never saw that £20..
I am itching to go out today but i still have this nagging cough and stuffy head ad I'm scared I make it worse by running. Over the next few days, running will be tough as I have a concert to attend tomorrow and my folks are flying in on thursday for a week. I might try get over this cold but i am beginning to stress about the lack of training in prep for london.
cartersum - wow that is impressive mileage, I should be around that each week but life keeps getting in the way.
I hadnt eaten all day saturday so by about 3pm i was so hungry, i had to eat something, so i reached for the bread and made myself 2 slices with butter on. I had about 3 bites and felt sick and couldnt eat any more..Not sure if its psychological but i am disliking anything with carbs in it...hope to get over this cold and cough so i can ramp up my weekly milage.
Shades - I am surprised how pleased I am with that time.. I thought I would be disappointed it wasn't a pb but I wasn't trying for one. Got a very busy couple of weeks ahead so have to make any runs count as I don't think I'll get out Everyday. Got to try get more long runs in and focus cause London is approaching fast..
Big_G - wrote that's a fantastic time. Well done..
I did the 10k this morning Despite still having a slight cough and stuffy head... The route had changed a bit since the last time I ran it and it was 3 laps including a long slow hill each lap.. Definitely not A PB course but my unofficial time was 41:17 which I'm happy with.
