I'm a little jealous of this cricklade half marathon talk, my own home towns run, and I can't do it this year cos I've got no holidays left to take and I'm working on that Sunday!!! I can't even cheer on as it starts after 10 o'clock !!! Gutted !!
I'm having to save the last 4 days I do have for Christmas !! Still it will be a special Christmas (sorry for mentioning "that" word already) as I will have two beautiful grand children to coo over
Running is going well, training plan is being done today for sodbury slog , but I'm still doing a base week of 30 miles , and it's muddier now it's rained which I'm loving, my boys are in good shape.....I on the other hand have gone up to 9 stone 6lbs due to the boyfriend feeding my tummy full of chocolate, and ice cream !!! But hoping along with the base mileage of 30 miles plus extra three sessions of speed, hill and long run, I'll get down to running weight of 8 stone 12 lbs pretty quick , it's day two of reduce crap food intake, notice I didn't say total ban on crap food as I'll fail if I ban it , knowing I can have chocolate if I want makes me say no I don't want it !!
Wtnmel go you with your speedy running, hoping your keeping up with your stretches to
Toby, what can I say, super star runner as always enjoy gnr oh and can you put your link up for sponsorship please
B&T good luck with your halfs, dead jealous me, and yes loft conversion will be worth it on the end ...
Still I'm on the lookout for runs that are close and on my Sundays off, have found one on Saturday 25th October in Swindon in a wood at 7 pm in the dark it's a 5 km but sounds fun, so I've pencilled that in and Toby and poohbear are joining me which will be nice, hopefully back to normal with the half marathons next year!!
Although I did enter London again so ballot results out soon I don't hold out hope but cos I said I wouldn't train over winter cos of impending grandchildren I'm betting I'm in , fingers crossed ....
Waves to every one else
