Haven't heard Watford results yet. It's fairly local to me and a lot from my club are doing it but I opted for Brighton as it's flatter
Angela, hope you've stopped procrastinating by now and are out there running!
Minni - congrats on the 12 miles. Not all at once I hope?!
20 miles done this morning. Had planned to do 18 but was so relieved that the weather wasn't too cold and no ice (just wind) that I opted to do 20. 8:02 average pace which felt OK. No donkeys but had to stop for a lady with 7 pug dogs. They kept following me and she said they could smell my fear! Bloody cheek - more likely they could smell the jelly babies stuffed into my tights pocket. I had a gel at 10 miles, 5 jelly babies at 15 miles and then another gel at 18 miles. What does anyone use to carry gels in races. I can only get 2 in my pocket. I've used those bum bag things before but they are a bit loose and I have to make them shorter with safety pins.
20 miles this morning. Had intended to do 18 bit felt strong and thought I should take advantage of the good weather (quite windy but just a relief not to be running in the slush and ice). Average pace was 8:02 which was a bit faster than planned but just kept a consistent effort. Stopped running when I encountered a lady walkiing 7 pugs who started following me (ignoring her). She said they could smell my fear!
Get well soon Big G. Sounds like you may need antibiotics.
Eventful LSR for me today. I had a dog 'encounter' but won't post a pic of the culprits as they were fairly small pugs, so nothing on the Mammafox scale! A lady was walking 7 of them so I stopped running for a bit, fearing they might chase. They were all sniffing round me and following me when I started to run again and she said they could sense my fear! All my fault then! I said if she was going to walk 7 dogs she should learn how to control them as all of them were ignoring her commands. Grrrr!
20 miles this morning. Decided to do 20 rather than 18 as it was such a lovely morning so I thought it would be good to get another one done as you never know what weather is around the corner. Had 2 gels and some jelly babies which helped although not sure keeping them in my back pocker is a good idea - they pull my tights done and it feels like I'm wearing a nappy!
11 miles GA yesterday and 7 today in slippery slush. I had to forego the strides as couldn't find a slush free pavement so would have ended up on the floor. My legs feel tired so hopefully will be OK for my 18 tomorrow.
