Chick- I was planning to take a big bin liner to the start area to keep warm in until the race starts but am not sure if the rules allow this. What of you think.?
O4S - brilliant run by you on Sunday. 81% WAVA is amazing. Very well done! Like you I had a cheese and tomato pizza the night before too.
Ant - well done on the 5minute pb. Your race was perfectly paced. Aiming for a sub 90 half sounds like a good plan.
AA - 3:29 is a great time. Very well done.
kfc - great time of limited training.
Jack - I feel your frustration. London can get very congested.
Freemers - so sorry to hear you had to drop out. You made the right decision. Enjoy your holiday.
Minni - likewise you made the right decision. Good luck with the relays on Friday.
Kiwi - the run sounds like a great way to celebrate yuor wedding anniversary
Nell - lovely place to run
Cooks - storming 5k
Nicki - wecome. Well done on a great time!
Redwood - hope things improve for you and soon
Boston trio - good luck guys. Hope you all have a great race. My key learn from Sunday would be not to push the pace in the first 10k when everything feels so easy.
Chick/DD/2old - getting mega excited for you. What time does the race start? I'm sure there's tracking as I remember tracking someone last year. We need a list of your numbers.
Hi Chick, Thanks for the fb. Mine is usually fine. It always asks if I want to use indoors before scanning for satellites, but didn't this morning, maybe that had something to do with it, who knows. I will see how I get on tomorrow morning....
Hi Ant, So that toothache came in handy in the end then yes, we do have some sunny days....not a lot I'll grant that!
Hi 2old,col, yes living on the south side of the city has it's advantages. Nice one 2old ;0) Hope you got out the office...
DD - I've just Pm'd you
Chick / 2Old / DD: Enjoy the race and have fun. Safe travels - are we able to capture Brol and hold her hostage until the team get to Boston and back safely
Safe travels Chick, D.D + 2Old and good luck!! looking forward to your race reports
Hi 2old, No, North/South rivalry in Edinburgh East/West (Hibs/Hearts). Although Hearts will go down this season and the way Hibs are playing they may join them! Mr Butcher is not working his magic just yet!
2old, Chick, DD. I wish you all the best in Boston ;0)
Wind was up again in Edinburgh this morning and to be honest my legs were feeling a bit heavy. I had a 10 mile tempo run planned, fed up of fighting the wind. Decided against it in the end and went down to the gym for some S&C seeing as I was up. May just rest today and do the run tomorrow which should have been my rest day. Coming to the end of the 11th week of the 16 week plan and feeling a bit jaded ;0(
Chick - Whispers very very quietly - yes I think I'm over my calf problem.
Wishing a safe trip, great race and weekend to Chick/DD/2old, we still need numbers off the fellas.
Col - Race report?
Swimming practice for me yesterday, followed by massage and picked up some new shoes, Physio is based at running shop which is handy. 11 miles this morning, 1 WU then 10 steady, avg for steady 7:16.
A productive morning, ridding my feet of 3 toenails BA was hiding as he gets a bit squeamish when I do them (straight rip and never mind the gore)
Think it must be about time for a gentle recovery run - lots of exercise planned for the weekend so need to see how much it is likely to hurt.............
Barry: (whispering) Fingers crossed!
Chick/ 2Old/DD- safe travels I can confirm I'm not going anywhere near airports this weekend. Have a great time and smash it!
Best of luck to the Boston trio!
Nell Picture was lovely. Your lucky running & having a view like that
Chick, DD & 2Old - have a safe journey & good luck . Excited for you all.
Minni good luck with the relays tomorrow
Went out this morning for a run which was lovely as the weather was just right.
Got to remember to get up early tomorrow for swimming training instead of tomorrow evening.
A massive good luck to da Boston 3 - hope it all goes well, it should be a good one especially with some poignant moments following last year. I'm jealous - one that I have wanted to do for a while....
Happy running/Easter to everyone else too - may there be a good mix of miles & chocolate! I've got an eleven mile training run with one of the other dads from our ante natal class - its been a while since we've run together but it always ended up competively & he has been 'practising'
Good luck to our Boston trio.
I've got Chick's no. but need 2Old & DD's so that i can continue my new found love of stalking!
Minni - Congrats on the GNR place...Well deserved.
It always amazes me how quickly you guys get back to the quicker running so soon after a marathon. I'm wrecked for weeks afterwards and when i do get back, it feels like all the marathon fitness has ebbed away???
Been to my running shop this morning to have gait reanalysed and the shoes that i've used for the last 5 years (Adrenalines) feel awful!
First run with the club tonight.
2old's flight has finally departed, 59mins late. They were probably having probs getting him away from the free bar in the lounge.
Situation has returned to normal in the O4S household. BA offered to do the ironing this evening (actually I told him to get on with it and stop prevaricating) but asked where the stuff was as everything is tidied away for house viewings. I told him it was in the tumble dryer so he proceeded to take all the dirty washing out of the washing machine and iron it before I noticed what he was up to . He is now doing the clean clothes!!
After working our way through 6 hours of marathon coverage we finally spotted BA turning into the Mall - 15 minutes before the end of the programme
Hi Minni, Yes I took the kids down to the swimming pool at Dunbar yesterday (no pool in Edinburgh with flumes!) idea was to take a walk after. The wind was that brutal, we just back into the car and headed home!
Are you up to Edinburgh with someone for the marathon Minni? I have my number 1219, no colour code as yet. Will be nice to see a different face in the crowd, thanks ;o)
Hi Barry, Physio based at the running shop, hmm nice and convenient eh?
Hi Pink, Do you have Stratford next week, I was hoping to get down for that, but my wife is running the Edinburgh 10 miler next week so support is required up here..
Hi 04S, I think I would have been hiding with BA on the toenail front....ouch
Hi Jack, Nice plan of action, I think it best to file it and kick back for now
Glad I left the run yesterday and ran this morning, perfect morning. Sunny, slightly cool at 7am with hardly any wind. Got in 9 miles at 7:15 and just under in places and then half a mile cool down.
The sun is shining and two wheels are calling
