The Arsenal really didn't turn up did they ... Uphill battle now with 3 goals needed in Monaco.... Very disappointing
Bad night for the Pool tonight also Carl ...
Carter - my golf wasn't that bad - 17pts was for 9 holes only don't forget so I was only +1 nett. Had 35 Pts for the round after a further 18 Pts on the back 9. Club only runs 9 hole comps in the winter.
5 miles tonight up & down dale before dark... 8:21 pace avg - bitterly cold wind but nice and sunny!
Another Gooner here ... Just shouting from the armchair tomorrow evening!
Some great running again over the weekend folks.
Carter - a mediocre 17pts for 9 holes in Saturdays Club Comp. Putter was off - Three putted 3 greens for bogeys & had an OB off the tee on the 3rd . Still got cut by 0.6 to 14.6 though from the previous weeks 21pt effort.
Late home tonight so 5 miles on the treddie with middle 3 @ tempo pace of 7:45
Will - great pace for your 15 miler.... is that around MP? Have you decided on a target pace for Edinburgh yet?
Ali - like your other activities/cross training - gotta compliment your running. I'm guilty of runnning & only running. Nell is well disciplined in this regard too - S&C at the gym etc. I guess maybe that's why I got injured!
Got up at 7:30am this morning and it was blowing a gale & lashing rain sideways! So I wimped out & reluctantly opted for a treadmill run instead intending to do just an hour. However I felt quite good and trotted along at a steady 9:14 pace for just over 1hr20mins whilst watching the Golf on the iPad .... So 9 miles done. Happy with that given that I nearly opted out of doing anything such was the fear of the dreadmill!
Carter - a stone and a half in 7 weeks??!! That's fantastic weight loss - there'll be nothing left of you! Club Stableford comp tomorrow - prob be rubbish after my lesson earlier in the week... he changed a few things so fully expect to get worse before I get better!
Will - congrats on tying the knot last year. You're running well by the sounds of things! I stopped running completely for 6 months last summer - a mixture of niggles/lingering injuries, house move & renovations and misplacing of mojo! Pulled the trainers on again over the Xmas hols and am slowly getting up to speed again. No races planned however have my eye on a trail/mountain HM in June. Running 3 times a week totalling about 20mls a week just..... Getting back into it nicely though & enjoying it which is the main thing
Hello again Will - I remember you.... Don't worry I'm just back from a bit of a sabbatical also... How's the training going? A few here doing Edinburgh from memory.
Got a 5 miler done just before sunset ... Lovely evening. Mostly country lanes to avoid the pesky traffic - since moving house I have come to realise all my routes are going to be incredibly hilly. Not a flat route in sight unless I jump in the car and drive somewhere which, as a rule, I don't do! Anyway, all good training I suppose - ran a steady pace and it felt good 9:15; 9:03, 8:20; 8:20 & 7:58 (first 2 miles uphill so felt like an 8:30 effort). ..... Avgd 8:35 and felt reasonably comfortable. Starting to feel the pace coming back which is quite motivational in itself.
