Another wet and miserable day in Scotland but hey ho...still not run yet as what started out as not feeling too great has migrated to my chest and throat so I've got my sexy husky voice on.. Going to rest and hope to run soon..
Shades - glad you had a good day in Dublin despite your result...I am still in awe at how you can do so many marathons. One flattens me for at least 4 weeks.
Khanivore - glad to see you are back in the running mindset with good weekly mileage.
Well I had all intentions to head out for a run today but I am not feeling 100%, might be the central heating being on or the fact I am not excersising or it could be the piss poor weather (pardon the language) been raining constantly since we got here and got two couped up, wound up kids which makes everyone edgey. Hope it improves as I'm really needing to get out and run...
Shades - I can't believe racing is so addictive. I'll try look for more races. I might be helping that friend train for London so that will keep me going and do me good as the longer runs will be much slower.
KK - well done on achieving your targets.
Clag - great Park run. Head winds can totally change a race.
SK - well done on a PB. That sub 20min is not far away.
Good luck to all that are racing today..
I've had a very lazy week but am now getting frustrated with the lack of exercise so will get going again today. Then it's packing and an early night cause we are driving to Scotland for the week (my shoes will be packed too). I am finding it tough not having a race to train for as I think my next planned one is in march next year
Gives me plenty of time to train during the winter..
Big _G - I don't think it's odd being happy about A PB Irrespective the distance. I'm really pleased about my benchmark 10k time and if I break it up, my 5k time was 19:03 and my fastest mile was 5:46 which makes me realise that my training is going in the right direction. I think the main thing is that you see improvement no matter how big or small..
I have already been looking for more 10k races to run as I know my next longer race will probably be paddock wood half in march. Plenty of time to work on getting stronger and faster.
