Great biking Slokey. I really enjoyed reading your reports. A great route, with a well deserved swim in the Med and beers to follow. What a great trip you've had and some decent training too.
12 hours to glory indeed BB. A brilliant win over many, many miles.
So after over 18 months of recovery, rehab and rebuilding, I've decided that I've had enough of lots of slow running. I've had no pain in my hip for over 2 months. So, nervously, I ventured to the track this morning for a satisfying session of 400, 600, 800, 800, 600, 400. Felt great and all ok.
Great riding and posting Slokey. It's like reading a preview to the TDF, but with more detail (puking and shivering!) You have ridden some big cols and must be pleased with your achievements.
Sorry to read about your emotional difficulties Jools. I'm sure you'll work it out - and in the meantime keep bashing out those 6mm.
I read your 10k exploits with interest Birch, as I had a similar experience. I was convinced that I would once again get below 40 minutes, but fuelled by an extravagant evening out the night before, faded quickly to post my slowest ever 10k of 41:10. I'm sure that the only way is up (in the hope that the time will come down!)
Nice base mileage there Gul. I'm matching your approach, but wonder whether I should add some quicker runs.
Missed a week on here, working in Thurrock, where I fully expected to bump into Smithy and Gavve'la. Running is a great way to explore new surroundings and I found some decent trails and paths leading to the Thames and back. I'm back there for another couple of days in a fortnight, with the potential for a much more significant contract, if things go well.
Sounds like a good day out at Lords GD and a nice hangover free 12!
Great super fast running from junior Lorenzito and OO. And a good test run for your hydration system Lorenzo.
Inspired by Birch, I finished this week with an easy 9 - so 50 for the week. A nice round number and it feels like a landmark...the last time I did 50 was in August 2014. No twinges of any sort from the old hip. Of course, we all know that Badbark does more than that in just 1 day - but where's the report?
I have a 5 day contract in Thurrock next week, so I'm looking forward to some Thames side running.
