Will have a read of the blog later B2B. I had a bug hit the back of my throat the other day, must have looked hilarious as I coughed and spluttered along the tow path.
Grendel, it was indeed a super day, we lost a few too as the boys panicked before I could get to them. Most were around 3-4lb, a few hit about the 6lb mark and one or two were around 8lbs. My back was aching, not from the weight of the fish but I was in and out of my seat all day long like some strange interval session. The boys sure enjoyed it!
Good solid running from you as usual Grendel, enjoy the rest day. First entrant! Nice one!
Great running MS, if you feel recovered then run, and enjoy it. Half Marathon entry on the cards then?
Agent Ginger…..so many people have said how nice Richmond Park is to run in, so much lovely scenery. Cycling is a fantastic way to get and stay in shape. Non-impact too so a perfect foil for your running. I think the furthest I’ve cycled is 35 miles?
Ran my last miles of July last night and did the hill session that I’ve done the last few weeks. On leaving the house I realised my Garmin battery was dead so ran to feel. I’m sure my warm up was a little fast but didn’t push so accepted the pace as easy. Arrived at the bottom of the hill and set off for my first rep…..halfway up I ground to almost a complete stop, I had set off far too quick. Rep two felt spot on and rep three too. Rep four was far too slow (I felt far too good at the top) but the last two went well. It’s amazing the difference your arms make on a steep hill when the legs tire! Relaxed into an easy run home only to end up following another runner. I was slowly gaining on him and couldn’t resist picking up the pace. On catching up another appeared in front and again I couldn’t resist so finished with a rather quick warm down. Felt really good afterwards and this morning too so may add a rep or two next time. 5.5 miles in total.
Hi AgentGinger Can relate to your pattern, once the big event is done it's hard to motivate yourself. Enjoy the return to running and feel free to post about absolutely anything on her, they're a great bunch. Echo B2B's foundation.
slinger, there is a 5k next week which i'm hoping to attend and I have a 10k entry on the 20 August (pancake flat and no secret i'm hoping for my first ever sub 50 minute 10k).
