Boots have been de-oranged on todays 15miler - first time when running I actively seek out rather than avoid puddles. Bugger me they are bright - even catches me out and I'm the soft sod wearing them - but they are called lite show so cant say I wasn't warned.
Todays run was grand - didn't manage 8 at mp but 7 with 5 under 6.30 and 2 under 6.40 so quite happy enough thankyou very much.
Post run I use Slimfast which I get from Tesco which is a diet meal replacement milk shake thing but has all the same nutrients and vitamins as the fancy recovery drink but less half the price - only difference is the carbs are made out of more sugars than the sports equivalent. Works out at around 40p a serving if you buy them when they are buy 2 get one free, which is most times.
I have my first lsr with MP miles chucked in tomorrow after todays 6 mi recovery. Aint looking forward to it one bit.
Westy - you started your 12 week plan already I take it? Or did you just jump into the 18 week one? Also Have you got your signed docs form? I can email you mine from last year if you want - a no care bare monkey student looks at it for all of 1 second anyway, bit pointless really
Hope everyone goes well today
Edit - I have also bought a pair of new shoes which are the most orange things I have ever seen. They could be none more orange
10 tonite for me - went out in a blizzard and come home on a beautiful clear starfilled night, road lit up by the moon, on top of the mountain - could see for miles and miles across the Cheshire planes. Twas luvverly.
