Just a Little Bit Further - 2014

Posted: 17/10/2014 at 08:48

Morning

5 am in the morning MC- That is dedication. I don't think we realise how much long runs take it out of you. I am still feeling slow and tired after my exertions the Sunday before last. Managed to persuade myself to do 2 6 milers this wek and justy about broke the sub 9 minute mile. Still feel jaded and dare I say it slightly out of love with runnibg at the moment. Anyway off to club run in a mo & haev a 10 mile race on Sunday where I expect to be rubbish & beaten by lots of the girles!!  

Franny - well done on your 10 miler and great Park Run. May get off my backside and make my Park Run debut tomorrow week.

Bye for now...

Well done MC. Sounds like a hard race especially in the fog. Shame about the fog as I suspect that it is quite a scenic marathon.

I haven't run since Friday- giving myself a little rest after last Sunday. Hoping to find some speed in my legs tomorrow and build up some mileage. Have a 10 mile race this weekend- not sure I am upto it as I don't want to get too slow a time.

Thanks Franny- My legs are still very achey went out this morning for a 3 miler - my 1st run - since Sunday and was struggling with 9.30 minute miles no speed in my legs at the moment. Will run with the ladies tomorrow and away for the weekend with Mrs AF to Cheltenham so no running until Monday. You did really well in Lisbon so taking 10-15 minutes off due to heat easy sun 1.50! Back is getting better. Meant to have a 10 mile race on Sunday week- but unless I get some speed in my legs I am not sure if I will do it.

Did my 1st ultra yesterday the Downs Link Ultra- 38 miles from Guildford to Shoreham. Very friendly,but, think marathons are long enough for me in the future!!

Afternoon,

Ultra's are hard work.....not doing one again...

My race was a 38 miler- the Downs Link Ultra- and I very nearly pulled out at 26.5 miles but encouragement from my laides at the running club kept me going. I had to walk the last 5 or so miles but finished in 7.50 which was a lot slower than I wanted. However, satisfied that I have completed it..will stick to marathons and 1/2 in the future.

Hi All,

Franny-Enjoy the Lisbon Rock & Roll should be fun.

MC-Hope you are ok/?

Afternoon,

not a good running week this week as a few niggles in back! 4.7 miles Monday then took two days off 6.5 yesterday which was slow and not entirely pain free, 6 this morning which was a tad better.

Next Sunday is my 38 miler & I feel incredibly under prepared. Local 1/2 marathon is on Sunday but I have decided to be sensible & not run.

Well done Frany on you running. Where is everyone?

Well done Jude that is fantastic- what a star you are!!

MC-Well done on your 20 miler. 

I had a great day yesterday - about 10 of us competed in an obstacle race called Back to the Trenches- great fun with loads of mud, hills, tunnels, water slldes etc.

I am running really really slow at the moment, have a few niggles with my back am seeing Osteopath later- hopefully she will sort it out!!

Meant to be making my ultra debut Sunday week- 38 miles terrified and haven't done the training so going to be interesting. I have vowed to listen to one of my running ladies and not go off too fast!!!  

Bye for now...
