Big G - not really a cricket fan me. But that score does not sound too good !!
Ali - well done for getting a run in in those conditions. I was just thinking tonight when i was out running - cold but not unpleasant - that this time last year it was rather unpleasant but then got even worse in January. Ali you have done very well this week. Definitely back in the swing of things.
Big G - agree running on the dreaded treddie is not the same. I really struggle with it. My problem when I go away is that the only time to get a run in is at silly o'clock in the morning. And then I only have a window of 45 mins to an hour as I need to cool down etc before getting some brekkie in. And boy do I cook when in the gym. At that time going outside to explore is not an option. But I make sure I run every day and try amd get some fast miles in so at least I get a good workout.
I am away again for a few days next week.
I am toying with the idea of doing a HM on Sunday next week. There is one on in Milton Keynes, so about an hours drive. It is the first time though so not sure if it will be well organised and I have not yet fiund a route description. It seems to be on canal towpaths and through town parks so is probably not a PB attempt. It will not interfere with the family as they will all be away for the weekend as my OH is taking them to see her mum in Ireland. My parents are coming for Christmas.
Will decide on the HM on Monday.
7 miles for me tonight at 8:04 min/mile average.
No parkrun in the morning. The little fella has recovered from his broken elbow and been given the all clear to return to sport. So it is back to being a taxi on a Saturday morning to bring him to footie training.
I am planning a 12 - 14 mile LSR on Sunday morning.
Anyone else racing this weekend. Best of luck in your Santa dash Big G.
