Sounds like a great weekend Big G. There's nothing worse than running after/wrestling with a dog that has caught a live animal. Moreso if there are onlookers! As you said, absolutely nothing your friend could have done though. I always hope the victim is either (a) dead or (b)able to hurtle off quickly once released. Any more thoughts on getting a dog yourself?
My shoulder is much better thank you. Still sore but range of movement much better and I can actually sleep at night now! I don't need a sling to run - just need to keep my arm bent with my fist around shoulder level (this is actually easier than it sounds)
SK - Fantasic running from you - is that a PB? I'd agree with Shades (Just typed that without thinking... Ha!) - definitely do a bit more warming up before your next 5k. With regard to my dance routine - we are aiming for the school end of year "Spectacle" tp present our piece to the public(!) which will be around the end of June. It will be filmed and I'll try and do a link to a video if you want to see it.... I, however, have no intention of bouncing up and down in front of everyone. The master plan is that the children will know all the moves off by heart and can present a flawless performance on their own. Time is getting on though and I have still about a minute left of music to fill up. Watch this space!
Shades - I thought that's what you'd say about HR training! I am carrying on with it as it suits me, I feel I am progressing gradually and also have avoided injury. I think race wise I may have plateaued (sp?) a bit due to lack of speedwork but I will start to look at that after my 10 weeks of base training. I live in quite a hilly area and really mentally don't like having to slow to walk up hills. Do you think I could slow jog these and let my HR drift up a bit or to base train effectively should I really be walking them?
This week is the "proper" start of my mission to achieve a 3:30 marathon. MFP has started too. Well it has started from Monday to Friday anyway. I'm not going to go beserk eating on the weekends or anything, I just want two days break from tapping everything I eat into my phone!
What's next for you Shades - goals and race wise?
