Just a Little Bit Further - 2014

Well done on all the running and the tapering! It's going to be an exciting couple of weeks cheering you all on 

We ran park run this morning and my No.2 girl managed an amazing PB. She knocked 45secs off her 5k time to run an incredible 29.04 mins

Well done Spartak! 

Jude - hope you feel better soon.

I should be doing a run. But I have done SOOOO much cycling the past 5 days that I'm far too tired and need to give my legs a break.

Well done MC! 

Hi Everyone else. Nice to hear your news. Sorry I've been absent for a bit. Just busy. Not feeling too bad, running is very, very slowly improving. Used my Christmas Sweatshop voucher today a bought a lovely new running top so perhaps that will help 

Have been doing quite a bit of cycling though.

It's an excellent book so if anyone else is a fellow Kindle reader I would highly recommend it.

Wow! What a great weekend!!

Two 18miler training runs for Lainey and MC and two blisteringly fast 20miler races! Congratulations AF and Nandy. And great race reports for us to enjoy too.

Hi Ecky 

Have trained 6 days this week (although only short distances) so decided not to join my girlies in the pool this afternoon but have a rest day.

Yes, the three of us just about managed the cycling and running... all very slowly. 

All the best tomorrow AF!

I need cake too! 

AF - Have a great time on Sunday. Hope it is a fabulous race.

For the past four years friday has been my long run day. But since I'm not ready for that yet I took it as a mostly rest day with just and tiny bit of cycling (cos I wanted to go somewhere) and a tiny bit of rollerskating (cos I was at a party with my twins and couldn't resist!).

Tomorrow both twins and I are doing a 'brick' session. Cycling down to park run, running park run, then cycling home again. Big girl has a music practise thingy so hubby is taking her and Smidge to that.

My twins also had their cycling proficiency course this week and I am delighted (but not surprised) that they passed with no problems.

Franny - wow! how lovely it must be to run such a distance with Chico. I'm not a pet type of person, but if we lived in the country I would quite like a dog who could run with me.

MC - you must get up awfully early.

That is fast running AF! 

Well, I have gone ahead and booked the Thames Meander Summer marathon. I so enjoyed it last year. And I need to book something so I have a goal to work towards! Although this is only the third year it is growing into a very popular event so I'm afraid it will be sold out soon.

Congratulations on the pay rise and the excellent training! Sounds like an exciting weekend.

I have managed another 5k run/walk and am hoping my body is getting stronger even if it doesn't feel like it!

Lainey - we all have off days so hopefully you'll be feeling great for Monday

Ahhh, Jo, you had a very good excuse for an afternoon nap! 

AF - if you want a fast marathon then Thames Meander is pretty good, but still traffic/road free (except the last bridge) which I really like. Running through the park and seeing the stages was breathtaking!
