Shades - I haven't looked at the price of running shoes here but I would imagine you are right. Lake Garda is really beautiful, especially the part with all the mountains. Where we are staying now, there is a longer route around the lake which is better for running as before I had to go backwards and forwards a bit.
Glad the foot seems better. I'm the same when I can't run.
Mamafox - you seem to have very adventurous runs! I overtook a German guy yesterday and he obviously didn't like it as he suddenly speeded up and we ended up racing for about a kilometre!
Afternoon P&Ders. I'm camping in Italy and not had much wifi up to now so have been catching up on the thread. Looks like everyone's training is going well. I've been out most days and managed almost 11 miles yesterday as it was a bit cooler than it's been on other days. Got an email telling me it's only 6 weeks until GNR so need to start upping the miles when I get back.
Afternoon Shadies. Just been catching up on the thread as I'm in Italy and the wifi is a bit sporadic. We're now at a 2nd campsite though which has a speedier connection.
Loved hearing about MF's adventures in the Dordogne. How lovely to see an owl on your run.
Hope BG is enjoying Sri Lanka. And hope Shades' foot is OK for this w/end.
Weather hear is hot but I've been running most days. Just means having to get up v early. Longest so far was almost 11 miles yesterday. We're staying on Lake Garda so every run has been by the lake. Am wishing I'd taken a 2nd pair of running shoes now.
Been lurking and not had much time to post as kids off school and trying to fit in work and runs. Track session tonight just about finished me off. 1x1000m, 2x800m, 2x400m and then a couple of 400m on the grass to warm down. Had to stop off at the garage on the way home to buy lots of chocolate to recover and unfortunately those 'duo' sized bars were cheaper than the usual sizes...
Keith - I'd avoid any 'bimbles' until you have seen the physio! Hope you recover soon.
