Blimey don't you lot talk alot haha took me a while to catch up
Newquay was great, we got out loads and saw quite abit although the weather was very hit and miss. We arrived there Friday and it was a beautiful day, had a coffee at costa sitting outside in t-shirt unfortunately that didn't contine. Saturday was my Birthday and it was drizzling all day really, we went to a place called Gwithian to watch a windsurfing event, lovely place down very narrow roads. Went out for curry and drinks in the evening the next couple of days were spent at various places we had marked to look at, Surfing going on on Fistral Beach. Hubby windsurfed at two lovely spots, Stitians Lake and Loe Beach.
Without to much detail I had unexpected womens probs (sorry even thats to much detail but don't know how else to put it) which totally messed my plans for running as I felt like rubbish for 2 days but like I said I had a good time and its always good to get away
Felt bad once I got home for not doing anything but got out with the club last night, we did about 5K and I really enjoyed it so the weekend I will get back into it and push on
Thort I would post that then do another one about you lot
Silver - you have been doing some running in the last few days and all sounds good so whats the decision on the HM? Why don't you just drive yourself there then its easier you don't have to bother your wife? My hubby doesn't always come with me and I am ok driving, although I have not done a HM yet. I think you could do it ok as long as you really do pace yourself and don't mind walking etc
I still think for your first race you should do a 5 or a 10K just to get the feel of what its like, then there will be no stopping you
I hope you are not hungover today, all that wine
Stripes - so pleased you got out with the running club and it went well, will you try and keep going with then now. Nice there is so many people aswell as you can always slot in better where you are comfortable and the garmin is going well I always use mine even with the clubs as do a few others.
Mal - your new pup sounds lovely, like the others I would love a dog but not while we work full time
Silver's soon to be new home haha
Morning Ellie and welcome to our thread
I was treadmill running to start with, but gotta say once I went out on the roads I loved it and have got the bug
Give yourself time to get use to it and see how you feel then
I am a great believer in doing what you really love doing, you just won't keep it up if you don't enjoy it at all
Oh right, soz I didn't realise you didn't finish where you started, thats a bit tricky then
Blimey our chit chat is attracting the mases hehe
Maybe like this one:
How about this posh one
How did the run go?
Sounds like you had a good run and good time, its nice to get out when its still light something we cant do much over the coming months
Have I missed somewhere that you have a garmin how else can you work out your splits
get on with your chores and stop slacking
Yes you clocked up didn't you
Yes I am out tonight for a meal hehe it was planned a while back so yes I am missing running club I shall be out running somewhere tomorrow hopefully if I can get home in the light. After all the birthday naughtiness I need to pull my socks up, do you know I still haven't done as much mileage as I did in August how terrible lol
Am off soon so have a good evening you lot
Silver - stay off the wine tonight or I will have alot of reading tomorrow morning haha
Hello Ellie and Sabbie.
Mal, my brother had his cast off today, or maybe you are right and he was putting it on all along
Silver, I love the idea of you cocking up the miles
Glad to have you back Booey, finally took your advice and went to get my gait checked today. Glad I did as it turns out that I over-pronate. Got a gleaming new pair of expensive trainers. Trouble is they are so lovely that I don't want to wear them outside in this crappy weather
Did 5.82 miles this morning in 49.18, not gonna run again before my race on Sunday, worried now about wearing my old trainers but there is no way I am wearing the new pair for the first time in a race as its supposedly a big no-no.
Felt fine after. Bit achy now though but always tend to be a bit like that, thats why I'm worried about running on consecutive days. Did it last week for the first time but gone back to three sessions this week because of having a race on Sunday.
Don't think 70 quid ones are cheap, my expensive ones were only 85
Will use the old ones Sunday before switching.
When he played back the video of me running in the old pair it looked like my feet were collapsing outwards, when I tried some different pairs I could see how my feet were landing flat and my legs were straight on impact.
What is the decision on the HM?
The ones I liked were £105 but they weren't right for my crappy style
Find a 10k or a 5-10 miler and get your entry in. Once its done she can't argue? What date is your Reading HM? I must admit I like the idea of running into a stadium, sounds like great fun
