Afternoon folks,

Chilli - Don't despair.............as Loula says we gotta remember why we started running in the 1st place....I would take Loula's advice and build up from there....get your confidence back and the rest will fall in to place.............I had a couple of wobbles during my mara training.....but I got there in the end and YOU will to...........As you said you were feeling tired from the off......so just put it down to experience....the most important thing is that you carried on and that will stand you in good stead if things don't go to plan on any race day..........We are sometimes just too hard on ourselves.....You have had a tough week too...so just be kind to yourself..............YOU CAN DO IT MY FRIEND....Should take my own advice...LOL My running hasn't been great this week either.just feeling bit tired and that has reflected in my running times..............Went to parkrun and no did not get the time I wanted ...was 18 secs slower than last week BUT I was 2nd out of 18 in MY age group.....................Wooo Hooooo..that made me feel a bit better.

Ecky..............You wearing your new shoes tom for your race......................Good luck

Loula..................Hope you get out for your run....and are feeling a bit better...........

AF ..... Well done on your runs during your hols............You seem to be on good form just now..........I want to be speedy like that.................Hope Mrs AFs operation goes well............

Hellooooooooooooooo everyone else..............Have a good weekend.............I'm off to work in an hour......Boo

Good Morning folks

As Nandy says hope everyone is safe from the rioting. Chilli - Hope everthing okay around your area. Must be so frightening.

DJ -Glad you have no ill effects from your run-you'll soon be back to running the way you want soon.

Ecky...... Hope you are feeling better today........

Loula....... That marathon in October would be good planning/training for your Ultra.....You've defo got plenty time to train for mara distance in October....Go for it.........

I am not long back from my 13.5 miles and I have to report that it has been my worst training run in a while - was 4mins slower than last week........my legs just felt like lead and I could have just given up after 2miles but me being determined just got on with it.....even thoughb I knew it was not agood time... MY quads just did not want to loosen up at all....was a nice sunny morning but very chilly wind and I had my shorts on.....was wishing I had put my capris on to give my knee and backs of leg a bit of warmth....Hey HO I will know better for the next time not to get lulled into a false sense of security....Oh its sunny outside it must be warm....NOT in Scotland LOL Definitley an Autumnal feel to this morning and my legs did not thank me for it all......

Helooooooooooooo to everyone else and happy safe running.

Nandy - I do a weights session twice a week which consists of weighted sqauts,lunges,step ups,toe raises,Upper body work to and some core strength work on the swiss ball and bosu and find that really compliments my running nicely.

Morning everyone,

Jude....your last week of the hols already.......time flies.....well done on your 9miles in that heat..you must be adapting really well now.

Chilli.... Well done on your tempo 5k and sounds like you had a lovely day yesterday.

Loula....................Am having second thoughts about ultra again....just watched footage of me at the end of the marathon after I crossed the line and I was hobbling...had forgotten about that ...LOL...will make my mind up after my mara next year I think.........

DJ - So glad to hear your all sorted...Take it easy today on your run.

Saz.......Hope you get out for your run this afternoon......

Nandy....... Its tough trying to fit in training around work and doing up the house but it will all be definitley worth it..............

Been to gym this morning and did my weights etc and KM repeats.................work this afternoon.

Thanks Nandy and Loula........................I know 19.42 for a 5k and she is not the only one who is fast in my age group the 2nd lady in my age group was 3rd lady finished overall. LOL I will never be 1st in my age category at Edinburgh Parkrun...toomany good club runners but I enjoy it and agirl can dream...................

Nandy ....................agree with Loula......your a youngster so you have age on your side and could do it no probs

I am sure that guy on the ultra thread is right as you say Loula...................once you'vr done one you will be hooked......thats what am worried about LOL............I said i would never do another marathon after the one I did in May this year and have already signed up for next year.................so yeah I would get hooked I think................What is the JW??? and where is it??

Better go dinner is almost ready.....................Laters
