Who else gets up at stupid O clock to run ??



  • Morning gang...

    Good luck this weekend Kate.  I will think of you still spinning around the bike course when I finish Vit!image  

    It's the weekend already (OK, so I've taken today off work)!  Happy Friday folks....

    RACE WEEKEND!  image  My first tri this year.  

  • good luck PSC - wish I was going, loads of people I know are going to be there, but I am a bit busy image


  • psc: All the best with your first Tri.

  • LOL... not my first one ever.... my first this year! (just in case anyone thought I had gone senile)!

    Cheers guys.

  • morning

    where is everyone?

    up early and some early shopping in Nottingham then swimming

    Caz was looking good yesterday and now has lots of crisps and some veg from my mum's allotment image

  • morning all

    missed my morning run through a bad night's sleep - but we are off biking in the forest today anyway. And swimming tonight so I will run tomorrow

    well done to PSC on the vit tri yesterday

    Well done to PSC!

    Hi everyone! A busy weekend for me on the house but still out running image a beautiful morning here as the mist was covering the fields.

    Maths - hope you're feeling better and get a better nights sleep tonight

  • hi everyone

    great day biking in the forest yesterday, but I had forgotten what hard work mountain biking is! Got to swimming club as well though so all good.

    going to do yesterday's long run this afternoon after OH gets home from work - didn't want to leave the kids for ages this morning, although they might not even have noticed!

  • Bum, earlier post lost, new PB of 12.37 but could have gone 5 mins quicker and got on the podium. Nonetheless, great race, lovely place and back next year.

  • Speedy iron lady alert. Brilliant time Kate. You deserve it. Well done. How did Mr F do?
  • wow, well done kate image that's an amazing time

    image Well done Kate! That's a great PB! image

    Out again this morning and was absolutely lovely. Managed to push the legs a little and felt suprisingly good after it!

  • evening all

    ran yesterday afternoon - well, walked a lot because of soreness in lower calf/achillies. Seems ok today though, and it was ok up until about 10 miles. Will have to see how it behaves over the next week or so

  • Mr F had an absolute blinder, 5.59, with a 2.49 bike split. Now we have a four hour delay at the airport, not impressed! 

  • 5 hour delay, 2am home, 5.30 wake up and now on the turbo, aargh it's going to be a long day. Morning all!

  • Morning and welcome back. I see we've got the late summer morning mists out there. All of the spiders webs are lit up with droplets of water. Beautiful.
  • I'm clearly grumpy, I just thought it's a bit bloody misty out there.

    Morning all,

    Maths - how is your achilles this morning?

    Kate - that's a great time for Mr. F!! 5hour delay sounds awful! image

    Went out this morning and the sun was just rising as i made it home. Autumn is well and truly coming image

  • 8 mile run after work - smashed it!  Summer running!  Love it love it love it.  Recovery run - I don't think so... 

  • Morning all - I'm a SOC runner again, hooray! Bed at 8pm last night and feel human again, so just 4 miles and a core and upper body garage workout. I think PSC might have recovered from the weekend already. More marathons this weekend Emmy? New job start this week MC?

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    PSC - í'm impressed with that! I struggle to run in the evenings and much prefer SOC (although SOC is now becoming dangerous o'clock with the amount of times i've nearly been knocked over image

    Kate - great that you're back to normal image That's a nice long sleep! My next race is next weekend's double. This weekend is packing madness (oh what joys...).

  • Back round the lake in MK Emmy?

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Nope - In Benelux for the month whilst i'm getting myself sorted for the move again. I swear - after this one - i'm not moving again.... or alternatively being so minimalist i can move in a suitcase!

    The next two races for me are:

    Saturday 13th is a small marathon near Leiden in fancy dress (cowboys). There are only 25 marathoners and roughly 25 teams running in relay.

    Sunday 14th  is in Belgium for the in flanders field marathon. A lovely marathon along the battlefields around Ypres.


  • Oh wow, both sound great. There's no way you'd even get all of your medals in one suitcase!

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    I'm needing to look for a better storage solution. My one vase is getting full image

  • hi all

    yes, started the new job this week which is why I haven't been online much. First day of classes today and I am totally shattered. 

    ankle/calf/achillies/whatever it is was niggly last night when I went for a run

    turbo this morning and the fan wasn't working so it was a bit hot and sweaty

    emmy - what job do you do that means you move around so much? 


  • Morning all!
  • Morning! Just core work this morning as a stupidly early commute, running and pool later.

  • E mmyE mmy ✭✭✭

    Maths - How is the new job? Are the students OK? Well done on still getting on there! I'm a Project Manager so i work in 3 locations.

    PSC - how are you feeling after your event last weekend and some great runs this week?

    Kate - What specific core work do you do? I'm looking to improve that at the moment.

    A supposed easy 10k turned into a tempo run this morning. I struggle to keep it nice and easy

  • I can recommend fitnessblender.com Emmy, loads of different stuff to do.
