I still have the "Shadies Runners" banner I made for the london marathon last year , my OH could wait at the finish somewhere with it visible so we can all meet there. I am definitely up for a "pasta party" of sorts the evening prior to the race.
Emmy - 64 marathons wow . Just shows I'm still a novice at 4. Chester will be my 5th.
Shades - glad the foot is feeling better, must be a relief with your next race just days away.
Yesterday I headed out for a run and decided to bring my 10 yr old with me but on his bike so he could keep up.. Well I spent most of the run telling him to watch out for other people and to hurry up..extremely frustrating. At one point I got into a very comfortable section and decided to completely open the taps. I was running at 5:26/mile and I looked back and my son was wayyyyy back so I had to ease off otherwise I would of lost him grrr. In the end we did 10 miles and at least he did get back to the car. Think I'll take him out more till he gets fitter..
When do we get our race pack for Chester?
morning all. looks like it is a bit warmer today so a good day for a nice run along the river.. I had an interesting run/cycle yesterday. I had to take my MTB down to halfords to get it serviced ready for my event in september so i cycled the 5 miles there and ran back. Now i am quite happy running and cycling but it was a strange transition going straight from a cycle to a run and it took me a mile or so to find my running legs. My admiration for triathletes and increased massively. Took me a total of 48 min to do the combined 10 miles. Pity that wasn't my running speed.
Good luck to all those of you racing this weekend, hope the weather holds out for you.
S3200H - My swimming isnt that strong anymore, back in South Africa I used to go bodyboarding 4 times a week rain or shine but, although i can swim fairly well, i get tired quickly but i guess that will improve the more i do it. We have a new leisure center opened near us which has a 25m pool and it is really clean and well kept so i guess ill be down there more since it is only about a mile away. I guess if the swimming doesn't go well then i can always try a duathlon but i never shy away from a challenge.
