Are you ok Reiki? An RTC? Hope there wasn't much damage. Am finding it very difficult running at the moment. Forced myself out this evening and did 3x1000m in the park but it was all very slow. Usually manage 6:05 pace but tonight was more like 6:50. Was difficult.
Did the parkrun in Whitley Bay on Saturday but finished 17! Was way off pace. Not sure what happened but my pace really dropped off in the final mile.
Did finally get down to the outdoor swim in Salford Quays last week and once I'd got over my fear of the the deep water I started to enjoy it. Managed to swim 1500m though my head was playing the Jaws theme all the way round....
My mile swim is on the 19th I let you know how it compares to running...
Blimey well done on your 10K Malcs - has the pb glow started to fade yet?
I am amazed that you've kept up the running since Paris. The sessions you've been doing look incredibly tough. I have let it slide since London, but hoping for a relaunch next week.
Hans C I don't know how you do the Huddersfield parkrun with a buggy. I teach in Huddersfield and some of my pupils do the parkrun. They tell me that the first part is just carnage. There are about 500 people who do it isn't there? It makes the times look even more impressive.
Have just put myself forward for a different challenge which is a mile swim in Salford Quays in 3 weeks time. I'll let you all know how I get on....
Very good times on your 1000m there Malcs. Dragged myself out today and did the same but I feel I've lost my runners mojo! If anyone finds it let me know. Think it could be the nice weather. It all seems to be too difficult when it is sunny.
Will probably give myself a week off and see how I feel then.
Sounds like an amazing road trip Chickadeee - any amusing tales? Good luck for the weekend Angela - take it you'll be doing the parkrun before your hair and make-up?
