Usual Monday morning catchup..
SK - Great 5k time, how fast is the 10yr old ?..that's quite impressive for her age.
Shades - How many are you on now ? , thinking of a pasty at the end would certainly help me through the last few miles
Emmy - 4:13 for a trail marathon is excellent, how hilly was it ?
Big G - I find it helps to concentrate on the downhill rather than waving at the camera ..it's all about confidence and having the legs left to run fast offroad downhill, you just have to let go & go for it, I love that feeling at the bottom of a mad rocky/muddy descent of wondering how i stayed upright. Just try and do them regularly.
mowzer - All your runs sound great , I must start writing them down. Saving worms is a bit mad though
mm - Hope all is well with you.
I had an offroad run planned on Friday, arranged to finish work at 3 so would have an hour or so of light to play with, happy days. Parked up & got changed, put my garmin on and it switched itself off, found that the case had split open again, searched the car for some tape/elastic band/zip tie & eventually sorted it (bodged it!) just locked the car and then I heard my phone buzzing away inside the car, thought about ignoring it but decided to answer it and it was the Mrs, she had left her car keys in a friends bag (who had now drove off) so was stuck, I've got her spare car key and she couldn't get hold of her friend...so run abandoned, not happy. Did get out for a 6 miler on Saturday morning and another 3 or so this morning in a lovely light drizzle.
