Thats great. Sounds brilliant running along the sea wall, whereabouts is that?
If you can run the latter part of a run quicker than the earlier you are definitely doing something right!
Stripes - my runners are Asics and cost £55 in the Sweatshop Sale, they did my gait analysis by me running up and down the shop. I can honestly say its the best thing I have purchased for running, I have had no problems what so ever with them and they are so comfortable. Also told me to go up a size as feet swell when you run, this is very true and wise words, did they say the same to you?
Sabbie - glad you enjoyed your run with the club. We holidayed in Dawlish Warren when I was a little girl, I don't remember much of it to be honest but it was so lovely there
Silver - so you found a race you can do soon? The ones I have marked before Xmas are prob not gonna happen, I just seem to have so much on. If I can do one I reckon I will be lucky
Well I am finishing at 3 today so get home in the light and will do my local 5K run, I have a docs appointment at 5.10 about my swelling hand joints (arthritis I think) I had xrays and blood tests last year but nothing was detected. In the last few months things have got worse, I have constant aching, swelling and its causing slight deforming now not good. To top it all I have had trouble with my knees the last week, I wake up in bed and they just ache (not the same ache as after running) so I think its now travelling to my lower half joints It is worrying me more now as I am struggling to open jars and things and it does run in my family
I sound like an 80 year old haha
Silver , my race is in Shepshed, Leicestershire, about 45 mins from me. Never been there but reviews of previous years make the race sound good. Know what you mean about coming on here. All my family and friends are sick of hearing about me going on this run or trying out this route etc etc
Booey, he did say about going up a size. I told him I was an 8 but sometimes I can get into a 7.5. He tried me in 8.5 but I ended up in an 8. The trail shoes I bought a few weeks ago are a 9 but apparently they do come small. Hope things go well at the doctors.
Sabbie, you are so lucky living somewhere like that. Never been to Dawlish but went through there on the way to Torquay once. I live about as far away from the sea as its possible to be I think
Ha Ha Ha.
Chapter Three of our book. 'Running Into Sin'
Was looking for a pic of something to resemble running into sin and found this haha
Thats tickled me hahahaahhahahaahahah
Yuk that would seriously make me run faster to get past hehe
I think we should all buy one of these
Sure the character wearing it was a tourist
Off now to visit my Nan in hospital, will be fun trip back later from Solihull to Tamworth in rush hour traffic.
haha I like the run sin hat
Stripes hope your Nan is ok
Am off soon, really looking forward to run I will prob go online at somepoint over the weekend so catch you all then
Off to the Fireworks at the Sailing Club 2moz night
Booey, the pup is demanding better quality living arrangements now! Sorry to hear about the arthritis. Really crappy that you're suffering.
Stripes, I should get my gait checked too but am too skint for new trainers anyway! Have you noticed a big difference in yours?
Silver, sounds like you have got some fantastic running in, well done. Whichever event you do you'll be fine I'm sure, though perhaps turning the half to a full marathon is a little ill advised!
Hello to everyone else saying hello, I couldn't keep up sorry, just sneaking on here while baby and puppy sleep and preschooler is engrossed watching Peppa Pig.
Going for a run with my sister tonight, I'll ask for advice on stretching the time up to 30 mins or so continuous running since that's much more enjoyable.
Brrrrr! My twin cancelled so I went on my lonesome, cold and miserable, had to run along the main roads and got jeered at twice by idiots. No idea what they were saying but it is intimidating. It makes me wish I'd skipped it altogether.
I don't know how I manage sometimes either, I'm lucky that I don't mind hard work at all. I'm finding accomodating (and house training) a puppy a little restrictive but hopefully it won't last long. Can't wait til she has her 2nd vaccinations and we can get walking. Silver, I'll post a medal for you, or a sticker for all the excellent child-juggling you've been doing!
I love running because nobody is talking to me!!! Nobody is demanding my attention, time or talking at/to me, blissful.
I was attacked by an enormous bag of Cadbury's Giant Chocolate Buttons a few minutes ago, don't worry though guys, I fought them off with my Pac Man moves. Phew, it was a close call for a while there!
