In over 300 hundred races I won 3. A 3 mile in Battersea Park, not sure where the faster runners were that time, as I certainly wouldn't have won it normally. An 11 mile cross country/road race against faster runners BUT they had a lot less stamina over the country than I obviously did - it helped as well that a runner from another club followed me down a single country lane in his car as he thought I had worked so hard I deserved the win.
Finally a 4 mile fun run in Dagenham - the organiser announced the course was marked out but follow him (pointing at me) as I would win it!!!! I did but took a wrong turn and had to retrace my steps and catch the others up.
Lazy Nic, well done for getting out. I'm pretty sure that there isn't a runner alive that hasn't been verbally abused like that, but as Amy said not one of those guys would be out doing what you are doing. Could tell you a story or two but may put you off!
Hope the run went well Amy without the reappearance of the eggs.
Alarm went off this morning at 5 for my planned easy 6 miler, it occured to me when I looked at my watch again that I wasn't 2 miles into my run. I must have dropped off again. Planned easy 6 turned into a hard(ish) 4 - Rest day tomorrow and whats the betting I won't be able to drop off again!!
Wait until later and go out is the obvious answer once you feel comfortable enough - But if not, treadmill is fine - running becomes a habit so it is better to get into the habit of doing some form of run than getting into the habit of deciding not to run because of ........................ (insert reason)
I tend to do all my runs at 5 o'clock (except one which was 3:35 am) so it does tend to be cooler then!
JR you are going to absolutely stonk that 10K - sub 50 for sure.
Another nice sunny day, after yesterdays whinging, I shut the legs up today and made them work harder than normal. Great to be out and about with no other people around. A mile warm up followed by a minute faster than normal and minute jog between each minute. Did that 25 times until i ran out of time and road. 6 miles
