Howdy all. I'm still plodding on with the 10k's and not finding the time to run any further.
Bad luck with the hip Tillstar. I do feel for you, it's gutting when you've got the will to do it but the old creaking bones won't play ball. Hope you get better soon.....I'm sure you will. I've had sore hips, feet, knees, buttocks over the last couple of years but thankfully none of them have hung around too long.
I went out last night with the local running club again and really enjoyed it. We did 'line running' where we ran out in a line and every minute the runner at the back had to sprint to the front of the pack and then a minute later the runner at the back had to ...... you get the picture.
It was a real buzz and such a change from my usual solitary running. Managed to maintain a pace of 7:15/mile for 45 minutes which I was pleased with.
Shame about the job Tillstar.....I'm sure something is around the corner. Good job you got out of the house at last and put some tarmac under those trainers! I've never actually ran on a treadmill......I quite like running in the rain as it goes. I was out in the lashing rain this week and one key point I was reminded of was that rain and hair gel rolling down my forehead into my eyes isn't a great feeling!
Bad luck with the Garmin......I'm on my second. My 305's battery died and I bought a replacement on eBay. Managed to open the case and replace it but it simply would not pick up any satellites since. I then upgraded to a 310 which is great though the screen has started to mist up this week when out in sunshine on colder days....I'm thinking of sending it back to Amazon to see if a replacement is better as I've found myself not being able to read the screen.
I've managed 4 x 6 mile runs this week and am quite enjoying it at the moment. I've really gotta find the time for some longer runs though.
Good running Robert...I'm the same, I wouldn't be without my Garmin. I just love storing all my runs and trying to beat my times.
Looking forward to the 'Poppy Half Marathon' on the 8th Nov. It's now sold out so there will be 1500 people taking part.
So I'm sticking to the 6 miles every other night regime. I went for my first run with a club last week and really enjoyed it. It was my first taste of interval training....we ran 6 miles alternating a mile at 7mins and a mile at 9mins the idea being 8mins is my comfort zone (I thinks that was what it was all about anyway). Really enjoyed it as it goes, and realised I'm not the only nutter out on a rainy evening wearing tight fitting shorts!
Now the Tonbridge Half is but a fading memory, I'm looking forward to the Bexhill Half on November the 8th. Hope the weather is okay as it's all on the seafront. This will be the first race I've done that consists of 'laps' as well. I think we do 4 laps to complete the half.
