I'm going out for the evening soon, so just wanted to wish you a massive GOOD LUCK for tomorrow, in case I miss you later. You've got the speed, you've got the endurance, and you've done the training, so now all you need to do is enjoy the day and I'm sure you are going to smash it! I'm excited to hear how you get on, you're going to do brilliantly. Go go go, Hanster!
I woke up feeling much more motivated and made it to parkrun. Waiting before the Start got me thinking about next time I will be standing on the start line in just over a week... Eek! Managed to keep roughly to tempo pace and not get totally carried away, though I probably sped up near the end.
Nice day for your 12 miler today CB69, though not as warm as it looks! Have a good run.
Ah yes, the carbs boredom.... I'm looking forward to that! Juice or sports drink is good too to get the carbs in when you don't want to eat more! It is a bit shocking when you work out how many carbs you should be eating, isn't it?
In contrast to CB69, I'd usually go tshirt rather than vest! Mainly because of the sun, I find my shoulders burn very easily so I don't have to worry about that if they're covered. I'm with you on that, I hate getting burned and this is the time of year it's easy to get caught out!
Excellent wildlife spotting CB69! Of course
I think I've been taking liberties with the permission not to run if I didn't feel like it I was going to do yesterday's run today but wasn't feeling great and have skipped it today as well. Grr, I think I'll try make it to parkrun tomorrow.
Ooh, so close now Hanster! Hope you manage to get a good nights sleep tonight and have a relaxing day tomorrow.
Right, I’m back. Slightly stressful afternoon on the Electron Microscope, a very, very expensive and very, very sensitive piece of equipment. I didn’t break it, and even better than that, it looks like my experiment worked. Win!
CB69, I hope your run went well today and you’ve had a good catch-up on Women’s Hour! Any Springwatch updates for us?
Hanster, a big thumbs up for your good news today, that’s always a relief when you’ve got a marathon coming up! Your plan to aim for 3.57 sounds good, you’re going to smash it! I’m glad to hear you’re calf has been feeling better too – don’t worry about the other aches and pains, you won’t feel them on Sunday! So exciting.
Angela, re: expo – 11ish would probably be about right for me too by the time I’ve got over there. I’ll be going by train so I guess it’ll take me a while to get across London. Coolio, would be great to meet up!
Just a very quick message - I'll come back to reply to others later - sorry, I've gotta dash now!
Angela, I'm so sorry to hear you're having a tough time. My dad died 26 years ago and I still find it tough so all my sympathies to you (((()))) . I'm also planning on going to the Expo on Friday so yes, meeting up would be fab! I was going to head there in the morning but it can be any time really. When are you thinking of going?
