My hole of liberty was the realisation that I didn't have to run 18 miles if I didn't want to. And since I really wasn't enjoying 18-milers at the time, I stopped. I felt liberated... but fell into a black hole of reduced running and am still trying to clamber out. I've managed 4x 3 milers this week, which is much improved from previous weeks. I've been prioritising work too much over the last few months and need to reclaim my morning running!
I'm swimming once a week too and have been trying to yoga. but that's gone down the pan a bit cos we're having some work done to the house and everything is a bit up in the air and we're in B&Q almost every spare minute.
In a hole of liberty - but they don't do much running there. Grotty showers put me off initially, then cold weather, then lack of motivation, and now its all a mind game to be able to get back up to 6+ mile training runs. Expanding waistline is yelling at me to pull myself together, so tomorrow is Day 3 of Back To It. Starting with a 3 mile run every day for a week. Got to start somewhere.
Hey!!!! Looking for some motivation.... heard about Outlaw.... remembering how excited I was by it all two years ago........ TWO YEARS?!?! Time flies. I bet Mini Chilis are registering for University or something, are they????
You can tell we are into peak of the Autumn season with all these 20-milers going on. A friend reminded me today that you should feel like you have worked hard at the end of the long run, so Friday morning = 14 miles for me. Or 2.5 hours. Whichever comes first
Half mara is 23rd Oct-ish, but am re-thinking this a bit since I'll be stranded in Cardiff on my current plan. I'm really just aiming for 23 miles that day
8.5 miles done this morning - felt quite good. Maybe I should have tried harder on Sunday.....
Ahh... I must remember to check in at the weekend!! Well done everyone on your long runs and races.
Nowt much from me - didn't run other than the 10k. 2.5 miles warm up and a 52 min 10k... 51.38mins on the chip. Really lovely event and we had quite a big team taking part so it was all round good feeling.
