SK - Great 5k time, how fast is the 10yr old ?..that's quite impressive for her age.
Shades - How many are you on now ? , thinking of a pasty at the end would certainly help me through the last few miles
Emmy - 4:13 for a trail marathon is excellent, how hilly was it ?
Big G - I find it helps to concentrate on the downhill rather than waving at the camera ..it's all about confidence and having the legs left to run fast offroad downhill, you just have to let go & go for it, I love that feeling at the bottom of a mad rocky/muddy descent of wondering how i stayed upright. Just try and do them regularly.
mowzer - All your runs sound great , I must start writing them down. Saving worms is a bit mad though
mm - Hope all is well with you.
I had an offroad run planned on Friday, arranged to finish work at 3 so would have an hour or so of light to play with, happy days. Parked up & got changed, put my garmin on and it switched itself off, found that the case had split open again, searched the car for some tape/elastic band/zip tie & eventually sorted it (bodged it!) just locked the car and then I heard my phone buzzing away inside the car, thought about ignoring it but decided to answer it and it was the Mrs, she had left her car keys in a friends bag (who had now drove off) so was stuck, I've got her spare car key and she couldn't get hold of her friend...so run abandoned, not happy. Did get out for a 6 miler on Saturday morning and another 3 or so this morning in a lovely light drizzle.
Mowzer - Don't know how you do it, any one of those days would be plenty for me!, mud is always good though.
Shades - Yes you pick them late September & ready for the Following xmas. 1/3 Sloe 1/3 Sugar & 1/3 Gin in a bottle, shake for a few weeks and leave, drain sloes off from July ish onwards. Hide bottles away from family as I've found they go missing . I'm always on the lookout for Sloe bushes when out running.
I also need some new trail shoes, was using Adidas Kanadias, which were fine but fancy trying something else, may go for some inov-8 and see if they are worth the cash. Was looking at Trailroc's if anyones used them ? , they look ideal for a mixture of tarmac/gravel/mud.
Well done Mamafox bet that felt good! ,looking forward to the report.
That's very consistent Emmy, you're making it sound easy now. MM, windy conditions are tough to run in, great time.
Finally got out for a run Saturday morning, only 4 miles but it's a start, felt good to be out. 3 or 4 tonight & then just try and get out regularly and get back in the routine.
More importantly I drained out my Sloe's from my Sloe gin from last year, which means I have to sample a little bit & then compare it to the year before ,very nice it was too. Have a big bag of Sloe's in the freezer that we picked a couple of months back, so need to start another batch.
