Well done Helga, nice run. I've done their Helvelyn and Ullswater weekend, and their marathon. Their trail marathon can accurately be described as 'hard and hilly' !
10mile run this morning in the rain. Got 3wks until my Cornwall marathons .
Waiting in for my plumber now to finish a few things off in the bathroom. Squad of Polish builders spent 3 days here and have done a stunning job on the floor and wall tiles, I'm so glad I chose them and not some of the dodgy people / companies who came to give quotes . They were here at the crack of dawn every day (cue some rather embarrassing moments with me just out of bed whilst they are ready to work work work!), ate their lunch while working and were away by mid-day, leaving me with peace for the afternoon whilst the various tile stages dried. Would definitely use them again, their attitude was so different to the British workers I've used in the past who act like they couldn't give a damn if they leave you hanging about all day.
Run tomorrow and then hopefully I can finally have a bath !!!
I've been in a 10k where guys have done that - run straight into the path of anyone that dares to take more than 45mins+ on the course. That is about the only time I've ever shouted at anyone to 'move out of the way you f*cking dick!!'
Pedestrians don't bother me, I usually just run around them. It's hilarious running around here when it snows, for some reason the pedestrian assumes I'm on the 'best bit' of snow, i.e. the least slippy bit cos I'm running on it, so they move over to my side, so I move over to there's, then they realise actually the snow is exactly the same on both sides and want back over to their original side. It's like a little dancing on ice routine!
So now I just run onto the road if I see a pedestrian coming toward me when its snowing !
