Molly - if you go to marathon-photos.com and enter "2013 Edinburgh marathon festival" in the event name and bib no "634" there are a few videos of me running as well as pics but you can't view them on an ipad
evening all...Just got in from another club session 8 x 800m. I only managed 7 but it was a good 7 at that, average time of around 2:53, not lightning but still fairly quick for me anyway..
I have seen videos of me running and i have a very unique and distinctive way of running. it has been said it looks like i'm running with a watermelon between my legs and carrying 2 more under my arms. knees and elbows tend to stick out but it works for me. If all else fails ill make a great watermelon farmer .. heehee
mowzer - mini me is back to his lively annoying self. No sure which I prefer but at least he is eating again...
Big_G - I was reading your post about your running style and how relaxed you seem ( although I have not witnessed it first hand) and your minimal arm movement...I Have been playing around with various arm positions and movements and I have found that when I'm tired, I hunch up in a tight ball, see profile pic, but at the start of the race and during shorter runs I have found that if I keep my hands around hip height and have small movements it actually allows me to up the pace considerably and the momentum is fantastic. Never tried the hands on hip approach though...
Unfortunately I missed my run tonight as we got back from Camden market quite late and the weather started to turn nasty but on the plus side, I spend 4 hours walking around with a 4 yr old strapped to my back so I certainly got a work out. (He is getting heavy) I plan on doing my LSR tomorrow evening, hopefully around 16 miles come rain or shine. ..
Molly - little one is still unwell, he has had a high temp since monday and nothing seems to shift it and cause his throat is sore he isnt eating or drinking much which is a huge concern but im sure he will be back to normal soon.
I recieve emails from the club regarding races and results and the guys i run with did a 10 mile race today and i am in awe of their times, the first guy was home in 55:45 which is seriously fast.
Im just going to head out for a lovely run in the late afternoon sun and hope last nights shenanigans wont affect me too much....(bad beer, tempting me like that) heehee... have a good weekend folks
