Yep, first 3 miles are downhill and i clocked 21 mins for those but then came the hill....... it is a glorous course for the 5 and the 20, well worth travelling to as was on the list of top 10 uk races at one point. Next year there will be new organisers so not bothered by their rudeness (I also got told off for taking a jelly baby after my 5 as they were for the 'proper runners').
Off for a 10 mile off road now with the club who are full of lovely, fun, pleasant people!
Trex - the cath will not be attached to a bag! He said cath with a valve. i would ensure it has plenty of slack before you fix it with tape or clothes. May be worth carrying extra lube/ plasters/ tape in case it rubs too. Good luck and well done for keeping the running up.
Can see on fb that Lotte's journey hasnt exactly been easy, sending sleepy thoughts for tonight and speedy thoughts for tomorrow!
Tt i cant keep track of laps even with reminders as i forget whether ive already moved it or not!
Did the 5 miler today instead of the 20 round the lakes at elan valley. Thought i had dipped under 40 and was thrilled but of course my super dooper watch didnt start when the hooter went so the repeated pressing meant i was a bit behind official time and actually clocked 40:02! Gutted. Then i marshalled for over 3 hours but didnt even get a thankyou!
Hmmm rotties could be just as likely to bite as any other breed but if they do they could kill. I was all for rehoming one when eldest was about 4 but my nan gave me a right talking to and now i am grateful i didnt. Guess bro is capable and responsible so thats positive.
Hoggle - its hard explaining to friends why you would miss their wedding but i totally get your reason and would struggle not to do the same.
CM - well done on getting through another session. All sounds good to me and hopefully will pave the way forward positively for you so you can be a parent/ adult when you need to be from now on.
CC -you are a good friend x
RF fab efforts as usual, you really can do 100 each of squats, sit ups and pressups??
Had a heart stopping moment when i went to collect kids from after school club and they weren't there.... No sign of them and staff said they hadnt come up at 3:30. They told me the blood literally drained from my face until i remembered that we arranged for sil to pick them up today.....phew!!!! Another example of me dropping the balls....
