What they all said, Ramjet. There will always be another race. Best to live to fight another day.
I feel slightly guilty that my race report might have psyched you out, AWC. Well toughed out. A week on and I'm starting to forget the horrors. Much like childbirth.
I took four days off and then have just done some pleasant easy running of between 5 and 7 miles. Nice to run in a fairly purposeless way for a change. Got a big team hilly relay race in two weeks though so need to get back on it. Easy running plus strides next week I think.
I think I would like eighty quid but actually I'm probably too lazy to do anything about it.
Been doing some hilly runs down here in Cornwall. Tackled 7 out and back miles along the rocky coast path and managed to fall over. Some cracking bruises but nothing more luckily. Today I did 5 miles along the lanes. Again very hilly but need it as only two weeks til the Hilly 100 now. I am seriously poor at hill running.
Mr V - you can also qualify with a sub-1:15 half? Someone in our club aimed for a 2:45 in his first marathon. Wheels did come off but think he still managed 2:53 or something.
Well done, Lit! Who needs training, eh?!
Rather you than me, Madbee. Hope you survived unscathed.
Welcome, Velloo! Glad to have more ladies in there. But I am disappointed that I'll be the slowest woman on the thread by loads.
Good news on the Manchester debacle handling, Skinny.
My legs are feeling ok today. I think I may chance a buggy run tomorrow. If for no other reason than we're Cornwall bound at the weekend and I want to do a bit of coast path running (most likely run/walking as it is a b***h and I'm def not pushing).
I quite fancy that Birmingham run, just from the perspective of being able to have no travelling type faffing.
In the spirit of moving onwards and upwards I have entered Bristol half in September and shall be aiming to earn a Championship spot via the medium of a sub-1:30 half. Which I may or may not use. Anyone else fancy it?
