Haha Susan - house chaos is no use. I trust you are well and sound like having fun! Yup I thought of you when i continually decided on XT instead of running - it kept the niggles at bay. festival sounds awesome!!
FRC - no such thing as a recovery run for me as the impact is the issue - so yup rest or XT or beer (not at same time though).
Well hellooo there everyone! I have been away for months and months with one brief post. I had my first run in a month just there (no not injured haha) and thought of this forum running round a sunny edinburgh!
So I finally did a marathon and didnt break myself. I also just cycled from Lands End to John O' Groats (lejog) - amazing!!! (not this morning it took 14 days). Decided against tri (just now Acoops just now!) and may try a duathlon ultra....mmm the pain.
I loved lejog so much but i am quitting cycling for a bit (or butt!). Who knew sudocream for adults would be so much of a necessity.
And yes i did sub 4 and was very proud and astonished at my finishing time in p!shing rain and wind. It turns out injury free i am actually quite fast for an old bloke (sub 3:30 .. sorry and no i wont be going for sub 3!!!).
Oh so my only marathon to date was the only time i didnt use a training plan religiously. I reckon there was something in it for my fragile body anyway. I often took 3-4 days off if needed and cycled instead. And i did it on 3 runs a week (sometimes 4). However, I have no burning desire to do a marathon again - well maybe ......
So nice to see everyones updates although Ikle seems to have become a complete running junkie
Helloooo everyone!! I hope you are all doing well and will have a wee look back at posts. Love this page - howard, ikle, susan, acoops , fido ... All of my main agony aunts from last year all together
Hope you are all doing well. So shhhh whisper it edinburgh two weeks sunday. Not fully trained but dont care...did 20 miles on saturday. Its gonna happen.
Also doing lands end to john o groats cycling in september and coops i learnt to swim! First tri in july ... I am hooked at this bike swim run shit!!! Lost half a stone and now need to eat my own body weight every day...its bliss.
What else..getting divorced...and moved to the centre of Edinburgh! So anyone need a room for festival im yer landlord apart from that life has been mundane.
