It's kept me going, got me back out the door when I've stopped and helped much more in between. My first effort on here was 2 minutes running followed by a 4 minute walk. This morning I ran 13 miles off road and have hit almost 130 miles for March alone. I'm looking at my food intake now too as I'm half a stone above race weight so want to be there before the summer and my marathon. There are a couple of threads I check out regularly on here and joining a running club, although I haven't been lately, was one of the best things I ever done. Like you 330, I train alone and at times its tough. Once the marathons done I'd like to set a few pb's at shorter distances, 5 & 10k, 10 miles and a HM. I'd also like to get an ultra entry in somewhere along the line.
Ooh...that's not good Barca! What a shame about the race.
13 miles today. Was meant to be at 9:58 per mile but went seriously off road and some of the climbs were verticle, my quads got a bloody good workout down the other side too. Kept pace along the flat but overall 9 minutes slower than planned. I think the terrain made up for it though.
You spoke too soon 330, lol. Missed my hilly tun as Mrs JR suggested we have a night in together. Go Thursday she said. Then Thursday arrives and Mrs JR is struggling with her leg and needs help with the kids so Thursday is missed. Never mind, one missed run won't hurt, I'll run Friday. Then she wins five tickets for the England game! Fridays run is aborted sorting travel and leaving work/school early for bus journey to Wembley. Saturdays run doesn't happen as despite getting home at 3:15am I still have the kids footy to do in the morning. Saturday afternoon is a write off.
Today we have 60mph winds, rain and generally miserable weather. Still, athough I don't fancy the scheduled 13 I have managed to do Saturdays 4 miles at MP. 13 planned tomorrow in better (hopefully) weather while the wife and kids are out. I have a week off work so no excuses now! Will still end the month with my biggest ever monthly mileage and hopefully by next weekend well and truly back on track.
Sorry to hear you're struggling 330. Hope you're feeling better today? It's getting awfully quiet in here lately. I will continue to post here until I have run my marathon in June as that was my target in my opening post. I think the thread may have run it's course (no pun intended) and although I'll keep a look out for future posts will probably leave it then. There have been lots of people come and go on here but social media has taken over for most peeps these days.
