Emmy - What a fab result! Really well done you.... especially after such a traumatic start. I can't imagine there are many people who would go on to run back to back marathons after having a car crash - and come out with such fab times too. It must be a sign as to how fit you are if you woke up for day 2 not feeling like you had done a mara the day before. I am well jealous! LOL at Boyska having a training plan... love it!
Rattler - Interesting to hear what happens at bootcamp. If you get invited back make sure you ""forget"" your Asics top for the photo shoot and get yourself kitted out with a Shadies t shirt
Very windy here this morning. Took route which involves me running over new wind turbine site (seemed like a good idea at the time) and nearly took off myself..
Shades - Thank you for your advice re my training - to be honest didn't realise how much I was dreading the idea of trying to organise myself to do a plan. Feel relieved now and looking forward to carrying on with base training over the next month or two. Am also going to incorporate a circuit of two laps (which I normally avoid like the plague) involving quite a few hills instead of speedwork.
Mowzer - Oh no! You are not going to find that enforced rest easy are you?!
Emmy - Good luck with your double this weekend.. Good to hear Boyska is enjoying his break too.
SK - Well done on another fantastic park run time!
Big_G - Have nothing useful to say (no change there then) on your HM training. All I can say is after a summer of base training I felt much stronger in my running this a autumn.
Molly - Well done on that swim! Have you got another triathlon planned yet?
After three nights of practically no sleep the toddler has made a remarkable recovery and is on fighting form again. Unlike his mother . I did manage to get out for a 15k yesterday but it wasn't pretty!
Mowzer! - Sorry to hear about your fall, really hope you are looking after yourself and recover soon.
Shades - Good to hear that you had a great time at Florence and ended your year of marathons on form.
Slowkoala - Hope you had a good meal! (In my opinion it is never too early to carb load - you need to practise these things in advance ) Will also be on prayer mat for you hoping that annoying child is watching CBeebies on Sunday!
No running for two days for me, toddler has been ill (nothing serious) and up in nights making it difficult for me to go out
Well done on that trail Big_G.... that looks like one big hill at mile 6! Great time as well for a hilly trail run. Bit surreal seeing those bagpipers in the middle of nowhere too!
Slowkoala - Congrats for your nephew, that is brilliant. You must be one proud auntie! Well done on your long run too.. that is quite a long distance for this early on in your plan. What time are you aiming for in April? I seem to remember you were under 3.30 for London last time...
10k done this morning.. beautiful clear skies. Was looking up at the costellation (think that's the word but it doesn't look right now..) "Orion" and thinking about how his belt is supposed to represent the pyramids at Gaza - then ran straight through deep puddle I hadn't seen and had to squelch the rest of the way home
