Morning all, I must admit I don't always find the time to post on here these days. A bit like SeeJay, Facebook seems to have taken over insofar as posting about running. I've managed 6 runs since I last posted. Sorry for the short message, I'm trying to keep on top of things both workwise and at home before I head off to Crete at the end of next week.
4.45 miles for me on Tuesday and 6.05 miles last night. There's a small group of us planning a run from Bitton Railway Station tomorrow morning. My distance could be anything between 6 and 8 miles, depends who I run with.
Not good news Kev, but at least you know what it is now and how you can treat it.
Nessie, sounds like you got some good training in. Pity you couldn't join us yesterday but maybe next time.
Well since I last posted, I've managed 2 outings, 5.30 miles last Thursday in 45:36 (ave 8:36) and 8.05 miles yesterday in 1:11:49 (ave 8:55). Last Thursday was so hot, it really did take it out of me. Yesterday's run was just what I needed! I ran the cycle path from Bitton out towards Bath and back with Seejay and a friend of mine, Ally. I've not run 8 miles since May, so it was really good to get that distance under the belt again, a real confidence booster. The second bonus was that Seejay kept the pace really steady, which was just what I needed. The third bonus was meeting Seejay again (always a pleasure)......oh, and the post-run bacon butties!
I'm looking at a short and steady recovery run tonight, just to flush the legs and then maybe a 5 miler tomorrow.
