Big G - not really a cricket fan me. But that score does not sound too good !!
Ali - well done for getting a run in in those conditions. I was just thinking tonight when i was out running - cold but not unpleasant - that this time last year it was rather unpleasant but then got even worse in January. Ali you have done very well this week. Definitely back in the swing of things.
Big G - agree running on the dreaded treddie is not the same. I really struggle with it. My problem when I go away is that the only time to get a run in is at silly o'clock in the morning. And then I only have a window of 45 mins to an hour as I need to cool down etc before getting some brekkie in. And boy do I cook when in the gym. At that time going outside to explore is not an option. But I make sure I run every day and try amd get some fast miles in so at least I get a good workout.
I am away again for a few days next week.
I am toying with the idea of doing a HM on Sunday next week. There is one on in Milton Keynes, so about an hours drive. It is the first time though so not sure if it will be well organised and I have not yet fiund a route description. It seems to be on canal towpaths and through town parks so is probably not a PB attempt. It will not interfere with the family as they will all be away for the weekend as my OH is taking them to see her mum in Ireland. My parents are coming for Christmas.
Will decide on the HM on Monday.
7 miles for me tonight at 8:04 min/mile average.
No parkrun in the morning. The little fella has recovered from his broken elbow and been given the all clear to return to sport. So it is back to being a taxi on a Saturday morning to bring him to footie training.
I am planning a 12 - 14 mile LSR on Sunday morning.
Anyone else racing this weekend. Best of luck in your Santa dash Big G.
Looks like the asics thingy is more orientated to people not on the forums. Seems facebook and twitter are more important judging by what you see on the home page. That said all these vote for me threads are a little annoying even if the 'finalists' have been told to do it etc.
I applied for the RW Six last year but did not make it.Clearly did not have the ability to write a good yarn !!
I joined in on Carter's thread with Spoons and have learnt loads through this last year. Smashed ny HM PB in February on a tough course, grabbed a PB in Paris (but not what I was looking for) but more importantly have picked up loads of great tips and a few running buddies along the way. The thread has kept going which is testament to the power of the RW 6. It is all about the running and less about the 15 minutes of fame.
Having only discoverd the forums around this time last year, it would be a real shame if others out there who are serious about running but need some help are not given the opportunity to learn from the great people on here who are very welcoming to newbies who are here for the right reasons.
If you put it off until after Christmas, it might mean that some people who are comtemplating early Spring marathons miss out.
Does anyone know when the voting finishes as most of thoses threads will fall away after that. Not everyone is as lucky as Minni to be pinned to the top of the list.
