GULP just entered my first half marathon

Posted: Today at 06:22

CW enjoy son's 13th birthday celebrations, I've just had last weekend full of my daughter's 18th birthday celebrations, I organised a surprise meal, there were 15 of us and she didn't have a clue, boy was it hard not to drop myself in it though, then on the Saturday she enjoyed the new series of Dr who ....

That makes 3 of us in the same area then as Wtnmel isn't too far from me either ...

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 ....

Wtnmel well done on your recent runs, it does in still you with confidence...

Toby your still running well as usual not long till the great north run, poohbear and snowmaiden are running well too

B&T hope your loft conversion is coming along nicely, and glad to see your still getting some running in

I took the boys out for a muddy wet 8 miles today along the railway track, good practice for sodbury slog in November, it felt liberating to run right through the middle of the huge puddles than run around them , May as well get use to the wrt soggy trainer feeling now , felt like a big kid gonna enjoy this muddy run lark

It does seem weird I've not even got any half marathons pencilled in this autumn, have my abseil on the 12th October and sodbury slog which is 9 miles of pure filth (bring it on) on the 9th November that's it!!! 

Daughter and daughter in law both due to drop in September and November respectively so have promised not to be off gallivanting , besides which I have no more spare holidays I can take to run a Sunday race if I'm due to work and as I work every other, cricklade is out of the window, and on the day of the  Swindon half I'm abseiling, I may look into devizes half  see what Sunday that's on, I wanted to do Bacchus half but that's September and I'm not taking chances of running and grandchild arriving as I'm birth partner!!! 

Good to see everyone is enjoying their running, I'm back up to my 5 plus miles a day 5 yesterday, 5:5 today lovely weather for running today a few spots of rain and cloudy! Since my hols I ran 3:5 miles for 8 mornings out of 10 , starting yesterday back up to the 5 , will add three evening sessions a week to that for mud running training , B&T I too will pretend I'm ultra running training with double running days

Hi all came back home yesterday morning ,landed at 3:05am slept for 3 hours on the plane but that was it for sleep in the 24 hour day!! Slept well last night and went for my first run since wed 9th July, boy my legs did itch for the first mile, as the blood was pumping faster than it has been the last two weeks, had to run whilst rubbing my legs was a Vic and Bob shooting stars dance moment!!! 

Managed two laps round, it felt like the three!!! And the dogs were panting like mad too and went in the river on both laps ....

Mel well done on completing c2c, get you jumping straight back into the running, YES remember those stretches!!!

B&T the word bedlam springs to mind, still will be nice when it's done and think of the extra room you'll have..

I'm soooooo missing my running, after several weeks of doing 30 miles a week 5 miles 6 days a week......

I'm still on my Greek island enjoying my holiday but missing running!!! Back home on Thursday morning so I may venture out , not for 5 though got to get back into it as have the boys ...can't wait ...enjoying swimming though which is most unlike me, I'm actually venturing in the deep end and going under water with goggles on !!! My daughter is very proud of me !! 

Happy running to all

Basher we are all on runners world, regailing our running prowess to each other cos our families will always be bored of listening to it ( mine are) that's cos they don't understand!! But as runners we will never tire of reading about other runners a achievements and running feats .....Will nip by on your other thread to see how your going, as it's always useful to know how other runners train to see if we can tweak our own training ...

As of last Thursday morning I am safely holidaying on the lovely Greek island of Rhodes for two weeks it's day 4 today and I'm enjoying my rest from running, think I've built a big enough base having run 30 miles a week since May with my dogs ....wonder if they are missing their 5 miles every morning so far?? I am a tad...

Still I'm swimming in the sea and pool, plus doing squats, lunges press ups and plank to try and stay with it!! 

Happy running all or cycling in tillstars case, I'd get saddle sore me!!
