Thanks Hans for the info on the pram...gona make a note for if the time comes. There seems to be so many out there, but yours sounds fantastic.
Hi Reikirabbit it was fantastic seeing you last week At parkrun, I lovely surprised. I still cant believe that you managed to pick me out from the 300 runners with just the small profile picture to go on. I was hoping that we could have all ran round together but after manoeuvring around some of the runners we had already lost you (which I apologise for) after park run nature called so it was a quick dash to the toilets so we couldnt stick around to say buy. Sorry to hear about VLM, but fingers crossed you will get a club place. I did york last year and struggled round it. I didnt think it was as flat as they made out but then afterwards I wondered if it was due to being ill/not feeling quite right that I found it tougher than I should. Dont worry about the hill at the end...the downhill finish afterwards to cheering crowds makes up for it! Well done on your long runs. Hope you get your injury list completed.
sticky 88 leeds 10k sounded like a nightmare, nothing worse than coming to an abrupt holt 1k into a race because people are walking in front of you. It happened yo me at GNR and I had started in the second pen!
hi Angela well done on your 30 mileS on sat followed by the 5 yesterday, you must be so excited now for your ultra.
Wow Malcs, 19:02 is so quick, the holidays obviously done you some good! On the baby front it was a comment about me and Angela....but I think having poppy has put chris off the idea of having children just yet....bought me a little more time . Shame about the photo...will try and upload it again later . I'm quite looking forward to the ultra now ive done a few runs over 20 miles with another 6-8 mile run the following morning.mi have done them mainly at marathon pace but haven't really been doing any speed work as I had a tight hamstring and ITB. I'm hoping that im on top of that now though and can start doing alittle more speed work again this week.
well done mc hilly on your new PB...youve completley smashed your previous PB, congratulations.
Thankyou feral bob. 46 miles sounds tough. Whats the furthest that youve run before? Good luck this weekend with Cheddar...sounds like youve been doing some proper carbo loading
thanks Hans I would def recommend the coastal run, its such a fantastic event. It does tend to sell out within about 6- 10 hours so you just have to watch out for the entries to open. 1:45 for a hilly 13.1 miles in training sounds great. Good luck for your half iron man. Well done on your buggy park run PB. What buggy do you use And would you recommend it?
hopefully see you both at thunder run next year
I normally do my long run on a friday, but Angela is coming to visit so were planning on running to park run, around park run and then back tomorrow morning instead, roughly 22-24 miles. Feels strange not running on a friday morning...ive ended up entering two races instead; major stone half in a few weeks time and guy folks 10 in nov.
running over the finish line together and completing the race.
We managed to come 25th out of the mixed teams, completing a total of 25 laps, I had done 6 of these.
After I had finished we went back to spectating and cheering on the other runners. The solo runners are so inspiring, and cheering them on was such a privilege. After the race had finished we collected our medals and had a team photo before sadly leaving for home hoping to be returning again in 12 months time.
We had a fantastic weekend, with an amazing bunch of people. The whole weekend is such a brilliant experience and I cant recommend it enough. Even my husband who hates running had a great weekend and is planning on entering it in a team next year.
i did write this for the york knavesmire harriers so it is focused on them rather than on the people I ran with and the people I know from here unfortunately
