Some great running and training been put in by you guys, I pulled the plug on the inter club race on Tuesday ankle still not 100% and I was also laying paving stones again and have been for the past few days, back is ok but a little stiff. Went out on the Bike Monday for 30 miles, 6 miles run on Wednesday and 6 miles today. Plenty of rain showers are keeping me from killing myself laying too many paving stones in one go. Park run on Saturday and a 10k race on Sunday which will be a plod.
OH Hope your having a great weekend nicr that things are getting back to normal
Tekkie nice running wish it was 32 here all we ever get is bloody rain
NN great running looking forward to see how you go tomorrow
SM6 Well done on the long run, I know a few of you guys suffer in the heat, great miles for the week.
Tricialitt thats good running on a trail, hope you have a quite weekend
MG1 nice long run get the liquids in
Thanks for the Birthday wishes Tea and buns with the Mayor was nice. Made a decision last night on the VLM and even if I'm not running we will be over for cake in the Park Started to put together my18 week training plan So God willing and injury free I will be on the start line Helped a neighbour yesterday replace a window and I think there grandchildren fed something to tBuddy which has upset his stomach Before the Parkrun he was ok we did our normal walk this morning but during the Parkrun he stopped twice and was lagging behind a lot during the last mile. Thankfully it seems to be out of his system now and he is full of life again. I was worried after the run as he just wasn't him self. Will get out in the rain again tomorrow around the forest for 8 miles.
Some great training going on well done everyone SM6 some nice pace for your double days, I always feel drained at the end of the week when first starting double days no matter if its swim/run or run/run. NN good luck with the 10k at the weekend. Teknik I think all the gamins have a off day every so often and it might be an update issue, Ive had a couple where I can't sync or it is right up the left but once updated on Garmin connect everything is ok.
Thanks for the Birthday wishes last year now in the 50-54 age group but not wishing the next 12 months to fly in. Swam and run Tue, Wed and Thur. Ankle is still sore to the touch but not an issue running in a straight line but having to go easy on any tight turns. Was invited to the Mayors Parlour for tea and cake for the WPFG some very nice people had put my name forward and it was very much appreciated. Looking forward i'm still not sure I want to run VLM at the moment, I have an inter club race on Tue night but not sure if I can give it 100% will see how I feel after the Parkrun on Saturday, then the following weekend is a 10k but this again will not be 100% but more of a training run before the Triathlon next month.
MG1 hope the jet lag is easy and enjoy your double tomorrow
OH first of all hope Els is doing ok and right that she pulled out of the Ultra. Great report and well done on the half yourself and as you have shown done on very little training
Went out on the bike this morning and for the first time this year no rain jacket worn, just over 30miles with a few hills. Ankle still a little swollen but thankfully no pain it's my honest belief that all the trail running has strengthened them and if this had happened with out all that running it would have taken a lot longer to have become pain free. Will get out for a easy run tomorrow.
SM6 Fantastic PB at the Parkrun Eyeballs out all the way the only way to run 5k's and well done on a nice run today. great stats for the week.
Teknik nice run yesterday and a great long run this morning, again big miles banked for the week
Gaz nice running sounds like a great way to refuel
Tricialitt nice couple of days running and good deeds
Gaz nice recovery
MG7 nice long run and well done on the bike with the children
SC well done with all the cross training and nice to see you on your way back
OH well done sir on your run, but true grit award to Els thats got to hurt, hope she is feeling better soon.
Feeling soft after reading about Els now, went to the Parkrun yesterday morning and during the warm up stepped on to the grass verge to pass someone and stepped straight into a pot hole and went over on my ankle. After a rub and stretch felt ok so walked over to the start, waited for the off and no real pain until a sharp right turn on the second lap which saw me having to slow right down. Finished in 18:17 and limped home. Ankle up like a balloon but no longer sore to touch or walk on so no run today hope to get out during the week
