I finally ordered one last night direct from Garmin.
Had a call today from my credit card company. They thought it might be dodgy so refused it. I would really have appreciated them calling me first before cancelling it and not the other way round.......
nothing to report, still injured. I finally succumbed to the mounting pressure to buy some new bling, a Forerunner 620, last night direct from the Garmin site. I love stats and would spend 24/7 inside excel if I could.
Had a call today from my credit card. As they thought it may be dodgy, they unitarily decided to cancel the purchase. Bar Stewards! It would have been fine if they'd called me first to check, but no, they just called me to tell me they'd done it. Grrrr
can I third the Brer appreciation society? I wonder how those people I know who think running one marathon is bad enough would react if I pointed them towards Brer?
Well done OH, in the back of my mind on the start line two thoughts that always come through are that first aim is to finish, second is to be happy with my effort. You've covered those two.
I just chuck medals in a draw. I recently moved house and seriously considered what to do with them for the reason that the next time I see them will be to bung another in there.
For me, I know I did that race. Whether it was a PB, or I know that I put everything in to it, or was using it as a training/'Fun' run.
I understand why you brought it, and after reading your post I could perhaps see me doing something similar but then only bunging it in that draw at the end of the day so doing nothing special with it.
I can understand why you feel that now doing something to 'earn' that medal seems appropriate. Have you thought about organising a re-born race? This could just be something informal amongst your friends/club, or a wider running fraternity. Something a bit more special than just a solo training run.
Morning, didn't persuade Mrs C to do Parkrun which meant I couldn't either as I'd have persuaded myself to go too fast 'Because everything's fine' only for it not to be shortly afterwards.....
Carter, ET, well done both on your Parkruns. Looks like you both got what you wanted out of it. Graves, I think, is my local coming from Old Whit so will see you up there at some point soon.
Sunday's usually been my LSR. Parkrun's have bu66ered that on those occasions when I've decided to Go For It. It probably hasn't helped that I'd run 4 miles to get there, and 4 miles home again. Still, I'm sure doing the LSR when knackered is good......
I take my two terriers with me on most of my runs, really wish I had four foot drive, they make it look so easy don't they?!
