Br1an, try one of these….. https://www.alpkit.com/products/gamma .... Half of us on this thread own one. They’re fantastic for pitch black trails. I live in a village with maybe one streetlight so the winter runs are all in the dark. I cycle to work every day, have done for some years now. It’s only 3 ½-4 miles but when it’s -10 and the rain is horizontal it can test my will power.
Nice pace slinger, I often watch my youngest lad running with envy at how he glides effortlessly along.
I’m hoping for a Spring marathon Howard and I’m doing my best to fill my Autumn/Winter calendar with build up races at various distances.
Looking forward to reading the write up on this one B2B! NUTS!
Lol Grendel, hopefully it took your mind off the tooth for a little while.
Nice running Agentginger, I am practically tee total these days, I simply cannot deal with the kids and an alcohol induced hangover these days.
Nice one MS, the RWR system is one I can recommend and certainly a great way to build up the miles.
Went along for my first night running with Honiton Running Club this evening. A great bunch they are too. Nobody asked how far I could run, or how fast I run, they just introduced themselves and off we all went. A nice atmosphere and safe to say i'll be going back. There's usually 20-30 people but the weather and holidays meant just 11/12 of us. The group split into two as we went off for a 6 1/2 mile multi terrain run along country lanes, through fields, across stiles and muddy tracks. I went with the quicker group and we stopped every now and then to wait for the second group. I didn't realise at the time the pace was often quicker than my 10k PB pace (and that included through muddy fields!). Good job we had a series of rests to wait for the others. It felt comfortable thanks to that. At 4 miles the slower group took a short cut back and the rest of us went off for the last few miles. We hit a few long, steep hills, one of which almost brought me to a standstill, and the guys in front of me looked so comfortable (I didn't realise until afterwards one of them is a 2:20 marathon runner!). They were all chatting away and despite the obvious gap in ability made me feel extremely welcome and waited at a couple of points to make sure I went the right way. Looking forward to going back.
