Arrived in plenty of time. Car park marshalls left a lot to be desired. Not much signage either but we managed to locate registration. My name wasnt down for some but they sorted it quickly. Strange finger chip and no number, they just write it on your hand! Managed to lose my chip.......
Safety briefing and instructions given , head torches adjusted and we were off. It was a peculiar sight seeing all these glowing lights heading off into the distance. My friend , her daughter and I were all staying together. It was quite a hilly course in places and muddy which you normally were warned about by the squeals of the people in front of you! It was quite disorientating at times especially once field had spread out a bit.We ran/walked as my friends daughters got a bit of a niggle and finished around 1.15 which I had roughly expected. A fun evening , not one for PBs.
Got changed en route home, called in pub to meet a couple of friends and realised slightly too late that drinking wine after running 10k and not eating is probably not my most sensible idea!
Now slowly becoming human again. One more cuppa should do it
((( )))) and vibes as needed. Lots needed by the sound of it
Work stupidly busy this week. And oh has bad back so I'm having to do sympathy at home too. Got him to gp yesterday and he's got stronger painkillers and a referral so at least things are progressing
Tomorrow eve I'm doing an off road 10k which requires head torch . Anyone used one in running and any tips ? It was one if those " oh that sounds fun, let's enter it " moments which I'm now sort of regretting!
morning. Had good time at running show yesterday. sat in on couple of seminars. Would have done more but oh was there and couldn't push it too far although he was well behaved and didn't moan too much !
Not slept well tho. Gripey tum and felt bit queasy. Supposed to be out for lunch today so hope it settles.
on a totally different note I need a dwarf costume for boxing day. there's a local 3.2 m off roader which I generally do. It's always good fun. This year run club are doing it on a Snow White and the??? Dwarves Theme. Got to be able to run in it but look lIke a dwarf. Oh and I cant sew! Any ideas??
Sorry not been in much.Was helping a friend 2 days , bit of shopping and that cleaning stuff in between. Oh and buying new running shoes and a new running bra! And today OH and I are going to the running show at Sandown Park. It sounds good, went quite a few years ago at a different location.Theres a few seminars I want to sit in on and hoping to get a few freebies too
Pity I havent done much actual running! One speedwork session since stratty but I did say I was going to rest up a bit more and let niggly achilles recover.
