Wicked skills BI. Sounds tough but you battled through. Well played.
Knocked out a wet and windy 15 miler yesterday. Just ran on feel. Forgot my gel and only had 500ml of water on me. Felt weird at 12 miles but took it easy and finished with a 7.48 average which pleasantly surprised me.
Feel totally fine today despite that being my longest run since Brighton Marathon in April. Base building is going OK.
Great report from Minni. Think we've all had leg pain like that during a mara. The report brought those memories flooding back. thanks for that!
Work and DIY are getting in the way of me regularly posting here but at least I'm still running. A new feature of the next campaign is weekly midweek 10 milers so I've been doing them as part of my base building. Did one on Wednesday night and was comfortably running 7.30 pace. I was surprised at how easy it felt which shows that the base work is paying off in its own way. Have also found a decent hill for hill reps near my new job, tat seems to be working too.
I don't do as many miles as most of you, so the 100 I got for October is good for me and I plan another century for November.
In other news, my mate trying to get me to enter the Race to the King next June. It's a 52 mile ultra. Never really interested me but may just do an easy run/walk approach to get the ultra thing ticked off.
15 wet miles planned for tomorrow. Have a good weekend all.
PFJ - Sorry to hear about your daughter and her friend/ Hope they're OK and her friend's leg heals quickly.
Great running Jools!
Unlucky with the team spot BB. Good running though.
Managed 7 miles yesterday morning at 7.09 pace. Was going to go slower but felt good on the first mile so kept a slightly higher intensity. Got back to see my youngest lad in the 2nd half of his football match and witnessed his first ever booking and subsequent man of the match award!
Base building continues and should hit 100 miles for the month which is good for me.
Have entered the Berlin ballot as a team of 3. Same mates are trying to get me to do Race to the King next summer. It's 52 miles and will be my first ultra. never interested me before but am seriously considering it as a one-off run/walk having a laugh event.
Redundancy money came through. New trainers come today!
