Sorry girls, so much to catch up on. Caro, still thinking of you a lot. CM eating, Lotte winning, running a lot and still not eating ! Lots of littlies starting school, preschool and new yr groups. Sounds like a fab holiday Camlo, we fancy narrow boat sometime. Sonya still hanging on, but getting there.
Not much change here. Gradually getting quicker, but not much. Decided to ditch my orthotics as getting PF issues, going to try minimal for some runs except long long runs. Won a 10k on Sat, very hilly, with some gravel sections, 41 mins, not super fast but a step in the right direction! Duathlon last night which if I'm honest I hated. I cannot cycle fast, didn't realise I was quite that bad, my 10 miles was 31 mins, slowest of the night!! I was 2nd fastest runner though on both runs. Not sure Ill be doing much triathlon unless I can improve the biking first . Ultras all the way! Bristol half in 2 weeks. Eek!! Then a 50k ultra in Nov. CC tempted by Great what sit ultra you did in July. Will it be on next year? Will you be doing it? Others are all so pricey!!
Fab holiday in France but some very bad thunderstorms which scared me let alone wee Sophie. Great cycling, body boarding, swimming, chilling though.
Back to school and work chaos. Like most here I work as we need the money, I do like to do something brain related, but would rather wfh all the time. Love my wfh Tuesdays! I will now get Fridays to get runs in and personal fun like coffee with my friends etc. She is in all mornings next week, just tues and weds this week though.
best get some lunch sorted. Sophie has wee friend round and must do some cleaning!
Awesome report. Loved it!! Think I will enter 3x3000, might read some more about it first though!! Think you will showing your heels to me CC after that running! Happy to share a room in B&b or lodge. Not so keen on camping in October. Might be ok I guess??
Glad you are having a better day Caro. So hard for you, I guess live for the moments you can feel OK?
The trouble with low mileage is you will never know over the longer distances what your true ability is. Sadly it does take more running to hit those fast fast times. I would never have run sub 3 or fast half times off 40 mile weeks.
I know my limits now, and am loving biking but not too fond of it in the winter, so will use other xtraining then.
