It's not "proper" camping Tracey. We've got a van so we should be able to get it reasonably warm.
Camping's not my bag (even in a van) but time away is always good. Hope you both enjoy your trips.
According to forecasts weather is due to be better tomoz so aim to do my long run then. Have 20 at 4.45 pace in mind just to see how it goes. Checked my shoes tonight and see that one of the heels is almost completely worn down, eek! Luckily there seem to be a few pairs in my size going cheap on Fleabay so have bought a pair.
Thinking of dropping Crawley. Still not got any accommodation sorted and I'm wondering if sub-consciously I don't really want to do it. Can always pick up another marathon later in the year.
Aimed for 20 miles at 4.40/4.45 pace (3.33.44/3.37.33). Managed 20.01 in 3.32.41
Need to do something about my pace in the early miles as am still going off far too fast. And my groin was a bit uncomfortable. Shin was a bit sore after the run too.
Other than that am a very happy camper
Oh and I got comedy tan lines
That is brilliant running. Keep a lid on the niggles.
I'll be looking for 3:40ish tomorrow depending on the hills.
Nice one XB!
Had a dreadful run yesterday. Overall not much slower than Saturday but just felt awful and the gremlins were on over-drive telling me I can't do it!
Well done, Tracey.
It's been a glorious day here; I was tempted to go for a run but settled for a stroll with the dog.
I might treat myself to a few miles tomorrow.
Well done T.
Have already done over half of last year's total. Course that doesn't take much doing!
Evening, my lovelies.
Something unusual happened today; I wrote a training schedule. Spurred on by your musings, Kaz, I thought I should have a crack at giving Stratford Mara a good go. I've jotted down 3 major sessions per week which I'll try and do to add a bit of speed. I'm reasonably happy with endurance; I could do better, but I should be OK.
My target is to dip under 4:20. I think it's possible as long as it's not a hot day. If it's hot then Chester will be the target.
There, I've said it. It's got to happen now.
Go for it XB!!
I made vague mutterings about sub-4.30 the other day but, luckily, only one person picked up on it!!
Hope you get shot of that cold soon T. Rotten feeling cr*p, especially when you've family things planned.
Was only thinking yesterday that I've been really lucky this year on the cold front. Had that pig of a cold I picked up in Berlin but since then barely a sniffle. Phew!
Got a bit carried away with it being light when I set out on my run this morning and ended up doing over double what I normally do of a morning. Slow though so it's put my morning out a bit!!
I read your sub 4:30 musings. My job is to get you sub-5 at Brighton but if you whop the arse of it and go sub-4:30 I'll be as chuffed as a chuffing chuffer.
It was your musings that got me to muse.
Perhaps you did double, Kaz, because subconciously you really love the early mornings
I hope your cold buggers off before the weekend, T. The thought of long strings of snot billowing behind you is not a pleasant one
Oh goodness I won't be sub-4.30'ing at Brighton!! Sort of more a target for autumn - Abo etc.
I think it was the shock of being daylight - and not being awake enough to realise I'd run past the turning I was planning to cut back on - that did it. Believe me I really can't see me turning into an early type!
Rest day for me Tomorrow is first tempo session and I'll have to do it early. I'm really excited.
