I've always find the grading just a little bit odd, only in that sometimes the full for points will reflect the length of the race is 4 points=100 miles, but that doesn't really reflect the overall demands of the race - 4 points, 100 miles, southern England vs 4 points, 100 miles self-navigated Lakeland route or even say The Spine Race for example? For some, the points will absolutely be important, for others, they'll just do another European race instead. I've fluctuated between wanting points and not, but what with them changing again the amount of points you need, and the difficultly of (1) even getting a place in a race with 4 points (they sell out within days), and accessibility to most of the races (where I live in new Scotland/family life) is a challenge, I am leaning more and more to not being remotely interested. There are so many other quieter, but equally challenging and beautiful races out there just waiting to be done.
Neither of mine embraced drinking water for ages, I used to despair and tried all manner of cups with J, by the time S arrived I knew it was a case of eventually they'd get there. Sounds great running TB though, very impressive to G at nursery whilst you work your hours out though.
Shouldn't be on here really, have so much to do I don't know where to start so thought I'd procrastinate instead!!! My first morning of teaching two classes (one after the other). So it would be great except for I obviously forgot to finalise with a lady joining my second class that she was definitely in that one not the first one ... she didn't turn up ... and then when I get home and check my emails again I realise I DID get back to her but only to say I'd confirm ... bu**er and to me ... trying to juggle too many balls clearly ... don't have a number for her so have sent a grovelling email and hope she comes along next week and I am forgiven ...
Did a very slow and steady 20-miler yesterday and was pleased to feel just fine despite my hill climb run the day before. Did waste about 15 minutes overall on re-tying shoes, walking while I ate something and taking pictures though!! New shiny shoes seem good - no blisters and some extra cushioning was welcome on the lumpy hardcore on the railway. Did add a loop in with a hill tho' as flat straight railway was become a bit boring, despite the lovely scenery!!
I guess I'd better stop procrastinating and do my jobs before school run heaven
sorry, I know I've missed stuff, feel very disorganised today!
Never mind, hubby back home tmrw night, and he gets Monday as a bank holiday even if we don't so he doesn't have to fly South on Sunday - yay
Oh how I laughed EF, guilty as charged myself at times!! Camlo - you look too young, no one would believe you and think you an imposter!! Fab effort WWell done the Yves, pbs we like. SOS - good advice from here. Definitely focus on the core along with rebuilding the legs ... The core is the key, but be gentle I'd things are adding. Pelvic floor exercises will also target your lower and as well. Pilates is great if you can get to a class, otherwise the wonderful power of you tube! TT planks are quite hard core!!
