Stepdaughter is tired but happy the end is in sight, another 120 yesterday so just 120 to go. Really didn't think she was going to complete within March as she had a lot of catching up to do.
Nice medals Emmy, there's me thinking Windermere is close and you'll have another 3 done by then.
10 very muddy very wet miles for me last night, they're the best runs though right! , did a little exploring down some footpaths I discovered (not on an OS map) and in places it was hard to tell what was the stream and what was the 'path'. Funnily enough my windproof isn't waterproof! , got soaked through. I need to invest in a decent lightweight waterproof.
I'd love to take that Springer off you mamafox! , would make a great trail dog.
sk - Nice parkrun time & course record , I still can't get my head round how hard they are & struggle getting the pacing right. That must be you done now for the long runs ?
Shades - The wind does wear you down, ideally you need to draft someone you did well to only just miss your pb.
Emmy - 3 to go..wow. Impressive amount of marathons you've been doing. What date is the 100th on?
Iain - 10min/miles! welcome to the real world , bet that felt awkward to get a rythym going. Certainly won't do you any harm & good to hear you're running. You could always wear some ankle weights/rucksack to make it tougher. I saw a guy once out running with his partner and he was wearing a weight vest.
Another lazy week for me, 3 runs = 20miles, bit better than the 12miles the week before though. 3 miles off my 100 target for March so all good. 23:06 for parkrun as part of an 8 miler. Legs felt better than last week, 40 secs off my pb though. I hear rumours of a Birkenhead parkrun starting, which is only a mile from the house. Didn't realise parkrun ask for a 3k start up donation, so I'll chuck some money in for that.
Step daughter, reached 1000 lengths on Friday & added 120 yesterday. Think that leaves her with 240 to go & 2 days to do it to complete in March so it's looking doable.
Always thought you were French mamafox! , my MIL is french
At 7 miles in the hill will be fine, glad it's not at 25 miles , It'll be a training run for me anyway and hopefully go for a sub 4 in Liverpool which is 4 weeks after, but is also a slightly hilly course.
My step daughter a couple of months ago decided that she wanted to do something to raise money for the Local Hospice (Wirral St Johns). Her Grandad (who she never met) died there & recently her best friends mum. She came up with the idea of swimming the channel, or I should say the equivilent of it in a pool. So after a bit of maths(googling) we worked out it's 21miles (1360 lengths) and decided to try and complete it within the month of March.
This didn't start off to well due to her getting a Tooth abcess and being in hospital for 3 days (5 teeth removed!)at the beginning of March, but she finally got going. This week has been impressive, Monday - 80 lengths, Tuesday 130!!lengths & Wednesday 80 Lengths. She's currently on 910, so end of March may just be do-able. £1300 raised so far. Oh and she's only 9 and normally a PITA but I'll be nice to her for this month at least.
