Great racing Cragchick. I'm not surprised that you're happy with that.
I'm glad you enjoyed your evening out Caro.
Congratulations on your pregnancy Hoggle. Who else is expecting again then? I'm definitely sticking with 2, it feels nice and balanced and neither of them are in nappies anymore, Billy never used the buggy anymore either so we've definitely moved onto a new chapter; it's a good place to be!
TT, you were virtually on my doorstep if you went to Cirencester, how rude of you not to call me! Are you still in this neck of the woods? How long are you in the UK for?
Blimey TT! Well, I personally think you and Sonya are both mad! BUT, big congratulations to you both! That's really lovely news. So, when are you both due?
Billy is 3 next month, I don't think I could do the baby stage again. I'm ready to move on to the next stage of our family life and will be starting my PGCE in September. I'm currently looking into my childcare options for Billy. Abi's easy, she'll be in school!
I've been injured since running Chester Marathon back in October and have only recently started back running again. I'm up to 3.6 miles now and have 2 park runs under my belt. I saw JohBoh there last week which was really lovely!
I've just popped on here to see if I could find exciting news from Sonya after a casual Facebook post...but instead I've just read about you Caro. What a shocker! I'd signed up to do the Gloucester Race for Life, simply because the date fits in with my training, but now I will do it with you in mind. You are young and fit, stay strong and positive (()) x
I have just completed Chester Marathon, for which I trained 4 x a week. The training went well and I got round in 4:27.
I have now entered the Manchester Marathon for next April and I am considering using Furman's FIRST marathon training plan as I like the idea of training 3 days a week, it will fit in better with family life.
Does anyone have any success stories/horror stories about this plan? It does seem pretty gruelling!
well, as it turned out the 4.15 and the 4.30 pacers were really close to each other at the start line, so I positioned myself between the 2. I had the 4.15 pacer in my sights for most of the way, but my right leg kept on giving way on me between 17 and 20 miles. I was aiming for 10 minute miles all the way round, and ended up doing about 10m 10 seconds.
