I've been skim reading through the previous messages on this thread. Some have been really inspiring and some of you are running for some really great causes. What happened to Geordie Nick? I welled up when I read his last post but then he stopped posting. If you're still reading Geordie Nick - good luck with the run - it's a great cause
Full of cold & bad sore throat today, so I had chance to look in at thread. Felt really, really bad for not being on for such a long time.
Had very busy time with big house renovations - then knacked my back/ IT band & hamstrings at Brampton-Carlise 10 mile race 2 weeks ago ( & not run since - nightmare !!), and also been busy helping organising a Santa Run for Sunderland Parkrun ( coming up this sat.11th dec )
Excuses, excuses I know - so will try harder to keep in touch with you guys more.
Haven't read back over many posts yet , so unsure of your news - but just hope everybody is OK & progressing with their training.
Thanks MattyMum. Shame you didn't run yesterday, it was a really nice day here in the North East. But still very well done on your 12 miles today. Where are you running in 4 weeks ?? Good luck whever it may be.
LIke you I never listen to music whilst running ( think I would find it a distraction )
I did a 5k Parkrun yesterday morning ( Saturday ) in Sunderland ( 24:27 ) .
Then a bit against my better judgement !! did a harrier league for the club in the afternoon, Felt very tired & very weary. Course was not too muddy - but quite hilly. 6 hard miles in approx 54 mins ( I think !! )
No more races now (apart from Parkruns ) until 20th Nov. Brampton - Carlisle ( 10 miles )
