Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??

Posted: Yesterday at 10:11

Didn't want to hurt him, I just thought he was being unfair, I have two days off from early morning runs per week, one for club and one for a  rest day and still to be woken at stupid o'clock - not on.

Good luck E mmy, hope you have a great weekend.

Rest day for me - although wakened at 4 by a different cat, one that is quite vocal and we had never seen before yesterday though - I am afraid I may have thrown a mug full of water at him/her

This is funny when I originally asked the question I never realised it would raise it's head regularly over the next couple of years! Someone suggested I try Sports shoes Unlimited and I did! Have been using them to buy Saucony ever since!

what happened to that thread with kk and seren?

Would they do me one without the beans?

The big question

I am sorry Nessie, if the Scots decide to go for the divorce, it has to be absolute - you can't walk out and leave us looking after the kids and expect to remain friends. 

Starting again from the beginning!

Haven't heard any more updates - but I have had food poisoning a couple of times (only mild) and recovered very quickly - so finger crossed in 48 hours they will have done an hour!!! .

That is a storming time JR on what is a hard course, plus the wrong turn - I like you attitude about giving it a go, as I do think holding back to win next time is against the spirit of it - but now you know the course and what to expect you (or of course Mrs JR) could do well.

Now time to smash the parkrun - 

Had a good evening last night - decided to sit back a bit due to hamstring problems - but soon, aided by some extra strong paracetamol soon managed to get closer to the front - started with minute on and then a minute off, then it got dark so we did shorter stuff with shorter recoveries -  Next week because it is so dark, they are going to split us into groups and it will be more tempo type runs, which to be honest is why I joined the club. I can do short intervals till the cows come home - but need someone to drag me along over longer runs -

Did a 5 mile recovery run this morning - just a lovely morning to be out and about.

Morning all, agree on the dog front Emmy - It is nice to know that an owner has their dog/s under control, not always the case.

Well I kept to the back last night until I knew the extra strong paracetamol had kicked in and without stretching out too fast managed to get closer to the front. No real reaction to this morning - still sore but nothing I can't handle.

Up at 5 am - a really nice morning - no cloud and the moon shining down with an early mist rolling in off the sea - a 5 mile easy recovery run - No wildlife not even a drunk this morning!!!

Rest day tomorrow.


Won't get into the Scotland Independent thing, have an opinion but I hope every Scott makes their vote count and they get the decision that everyone can live with.

Luckily the cat doesn't expect to be walked - we had a cat flap installed last week but he hasn't got the hang of, or would rather I get up and let him in or out!

Hi all, No early run for me today as club night, but lie in didn't happen, the problem is with pets (and children) they get into a routine and the cat especially was expecting his breakfast at normal time. Was tempted to run early and then again tonight but with hamstring didn't want to risk it and with the Wix 5 (target race in just over a month) decided against it - might dip out of the structured session (done on roads tonight) and jog around at the back. 

Will be an early start tomorrow though (promise) alarm set for 4:50.

I hope its food poisoning B2B as you should recover quicker than with a bug.

Look forward to the report tomorrow JR - I have no doubt that you have a 22 minute 5K in you, whether that is on a tough course, but once you learn the course I have no doubt you will smash it.

I had a couple of DNFs Slinger, once in London, once in Berlin, didn't experience anything like that though. It is hard to take though, all that training and dropping out  

Parkruns and 10 milers sound the way to go, use the fitness built up for the half and use the parkruns to build up some speed - I really do need to get my ar*se in gear and do a parkrun - will have a bash after the Wix 5 -  I am spending to much time on targeting one or two races each year rather than just get out and do some (like in the good old days) -
