Sounds like conditions over there are awful. It has been raining here but not cold.
What: 5km easy
Why: All I felt like
Mae doesn't like to go out when it rains. Daughter was out for 2 and a half hours walk/running but got badly chaffed because of the rain and heat, and had too much gear on. I'm very proud of her, she is really working hard on her fitness.
Columba - those two - competitive Think it is good to have your swimming, adds variety.
Meant to say the other day, my daughter is coming along nicely with her fitness. She has been doing long walks for some time now, with the idea in the back of her mind to do a marathon, but has realized she will be out for a very long time if she just walked. So she has started walk/running, and did a "magic" mile the other day to see where she is at. She did 2 and a half hours walk/running yesterday and was very happy. She runs with music, and I think that helps her.
Graham - looks like a nice course - looks like a scene from Robin Hood - you wouldn't be surprised to see him in the forest. Looks like too many leaves on the ground for spikes - you'd be carrying them around with you.
Impey - is it your 50th this Saturday?
Torque Steer - got my fingers crossed for you.
Ceal - I realize it was a soft record, but nowhere in my reach and I'm not even that age! Think my best chance for any sort of record would be in the shorter distance, but I fear I have neglected anything fast for so long, that I probably couldn't get my legs to tick over fast enough anymore.
Diana - nice pic - you are running really well.
Columba - you are putting in some good training - when is your next event?
I ran 6km at Cornwall Park last night, didn't feel great, but nice to be on the grass.
