Already 29C at the start and hilly, so I was going to be happy with under 30 mins and not to be overtaken by a 9.5km runner (we all started together then they went off around 2.5 km into the route). Finished in 28:30 ish. Felt strong on the hills until about 2.5 km when the heat got to me. Overtook a lot of people, and the few that overtook me were not ones I'd overtaken earlier which was good. Then went and did about 30 mins gardening and fell asleep under the cherry tree
Sorry been AWOL all week. Too hot and very busy at work.
Managed to run Mon, Tues, Thurs, all between 5 and 6 km. Coldest was 35C, hottest was 38.
Yesterday did 12 km of 600 m loops for a charity run. Full sun, at mid day in a cool 38C. Car temp on Friday read 42 at one point.
What: 5 km race Why: was going to do the 10, but in this heat, no thanks! Last hard: see above Lyrics: nope
Great race report Dibs LMH sounds like good news from the pain clinic. Cross fingers it helps. OH not such good news from your side Chick sounds like you're getting better, 11 miles after EBV is impressive!
Alex really good of you to stop and check the horse rider was ok and to encourage the little boy LMH you really do make me laugh. You write about bumbling along, then you only go and come in first You are really an inspiration.
Sorry have been AWOL for a bit. Thurs/Fri night stayed near work, did an 8 km on Thurs then a 5 km on Friday. Then had the weekend in Munich where we walked over 25 km in total.
What: Just short of 6 km Why: Need to get in those miles Last hard: walking yesterday, my leg was really bad Lyrics: nope
weather is amazing today. Meant to get up to 38C by the end of the week...I may melt!
Yesterday did 11 hilly kilometres after work. Could still feel Saturday in my legs.
What: I'd like to do a12 then a 9 km but legs are pretty shot so not sure what to do
Why: won't have time to do a longer run at the weekend
Last hard: moving this morning
Lyrics: yes!!! 5 day streak!
Any news of birks from anyone on here?
Wabo hope the ankle hurries up and improves.
Oh please take it easy!
Lmh tempted by your 6 hour race but don't think I'd be ready end of august, plus no time off work over the summer!
Have a good day all.
