Agreed 330, we need to post more! The more you visit the thread the more likely you’re going to get out there.
Dune buggies? Quad bikes! NO, WE ARE NOT JEALOUS!
Grendel, re: baselayers. Please do not be tempted to buy the cheapest one you find and if possible try it on! I bought a ‘more mile’ cheapo only for the neck of the garment to be half way up mine! Not very comfortable and very annoying fit. Cost £10, worn it twice = £5 per run. My parents bought me a Helly Hansen last Christmas and although at £23 not cheap I tried it on after reading reviews and it will work out better value in the long run (see what I did there?!) Cost £23, worn it…..25 times? Cost so far, about £1 per run and looks like it will last forever! Incredibly comfortable.
Glad you had an enjoyable evening with your son, you must be very proud. There is a teacher at my boys school who is absolutely stunning. Fortunately for me, I’m married to her. (she will be reading this thread later no doubt).
Lisa, so glad you managed to get out there. Good on you, would have been very easy to use your back as an excuse. Running will get you back to normal and you’re right, if you’re running then the rest of us have no excuse.
Two more runs to add to this week. 3.79 miles Wednesday, warm up and some downhill sprints, basically copying the session my wife did with the running club. Another 4.15 today. Had appointment in town so got the bus in after work, took my running gear with me and ran home.
Nov – 23.37
2013 - 506.22…….at last! And by my reckoning I was travelling at sub 4 minute miles when I hit 500…although this was a downhill sprint!
