Hello! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. My training has started for the Brighton Marathon in April, did 28 miles this week and feel really quite good. I just need to keep that up for the next three months, add a few miles to my weekly long run (last week's was 12, next week's will be a 13) and I'm good to go. I can't be @rsed to do much speed work, hills get done as part of my regular routes so I'll just plod along and see if I can finish in about 5 hours. Life is as mad as ever but muchly enjoyable and I am knitting Clangers to raise money for Macmillan.
I hope 2013 is everything you want it to be.
p.s. Booey, if you are on FB just PM me and I'll give you my username so you can find me.
Sorry, bad forumite here. Work gets in the way and FB too addictive. Just back from New Forest half where, as I was gaily running along at a nice 10+ min mile pace I get tapped on the shoulder at 3 miles. It was Mykey! Suffice to say we did the rest of the race together, thanks to Mykey I PB'd in 2:10:20, The last 3 miles in 29 minutes i think. I am sure he was pushing me up those hills. weather was foul apparently and I have webbed feet now. Don't run with him, he sings rude songs. I will read through hundreds of pages soon to catch up on all your news. Xx
Olympic torch done, union jack tea towel as a bandana done, 11 mile run done, mate moved to new house done, curtain poles, pictures etc done, I am wrecked. Funeral tomorrow to attend then a completely crazy week. Running in the diary , lets see what happens.
But Mykey, 5am and the sun was out, the birdies (that were awake) were singing and Dorset was beautiful. You should have been here. There were hills too and the sea was FAC. It all went a bit pear shaped after that and it's still raining now. My running is still poo. Fab technique but utterly exhausting to maintain. Is that better than crap technique but can go for absolutely bloody ages? It's doing my head in. I don't have career crises, stuck where I am but loving it, in London tomorrow and again monday (colleagues funeral - due to retire in six weeks, v. sad). Next week is completely mental. London Monday, Salisbury Tuesday, Cambridge Wednesday, birthday Thursday (dentist, hygienist, conference call for work) and software testing all day Friday. Olympic torch passes my door on Saturday of this week but bridge is full of potholes (been repaired 4 times in 8 days) and I can see someone landing flat on their face. Life is a blast.
Booey, Hang in there. Hope the meds work and well done on the mileage.
Mad, I am allergic to teenagers, in fact I am allergic to anyone under 25 I think.
I need to head for higher ground. Dorset is a little damp. A couple of my usual routes are under feet of water. Heng Head is OK but I am bored with it now. Gorgeous morning this morning so it could be Ferndown and part of the Castlemain trailway. Let's see how much mud there is.
