Brussels - another marathon? or just things in shells, chips mayo mmmmm and waffles? Sounds like a good plan.
I'm in for the Marseilles - Cassis 26th Oct, not sure if anyone else is on a list for that?
Feeling very very tired and I didn't run Loch Ness this weekend. Just been out in the pouring rain for a swift 17k, and I am now broken. I've totted up over 200 km's in Sept. Phew.
Blimey OneTit! You're going great guns! 200km! Not surprised you're feeling broken!
Weedy and I are doing the half marathon together this Sunday. I fully expect to eat his dust. I'm in no fit state to attempt a marathon distance (I'm barely in a fit state to attempt a half-marathon distance). I'm not ruling out stopping as and when necessary for "sustenance".
Though, I am quite enjoying the drop in my resting heart rate (I'm getting consistent night-time readings of below 65 ) and hoping that I can do a bit more work on improving my speed over shorter distances.
Douglas Maus! Welcome back - nice to see you have a friend I survived Loch Ness - it was tough, but I gritted my teeth and kept going, struggled on through thick and thin. That was the 10k - I believe some nutters were running a marathon too
For all of you wondering what the heck these bonkers people on the internet are doing posting photos of soft toys...
Douglas Maus is a bit of a forum mascot. After many adventures last year (think Amelie garden gnome), he took up permanent residence with me here in Brussels. Mr Armadillo is a recent gag designed to give me an excuse never to run again. My colleague at work once commented that an appropriate excuse to get out of running would be that he thought of an armadillo and that brings bad luck.
Feel free to use it whenever necessary.
Well done RR. Somebody had to watch out for the monster!
