Nice to speak to you in your own thread!
Sounds like your daughter has had an awful week.
Tights not come yet. Can't wait to get the Lycra on
I think my problem is that I struggle to slow down enough. All the experts on here and other websites seem to suggest that slower is better. My slow run is probably only 10-15% slower than my fastest and I am trying really hard to ease off more. Easier said than done though
Dog has gone, feeling sad but relieved the baby's face isn't as swollen, she resembled a pumpkin! Out for a run first thing tomorrow (in my new tights!) can't wait.
Nice to see everyone on here.
How could you all be busy spending time with your families etc instead of heaping sympathy my way? come on runners, you'll all have to be doubly sympathetic now. If you're not I'll be forced to punish you with 100's of photos, anecdotes and snippets related to the puppy.
Thanks Sabbie, you are now excused the punishment.
Can't wait for the run, I'm feeling restless without it. Hoping to attempt a 5k route to see how I go. Really want to have another go at parkrun to see if I can improve my time but not feeling on top form yet, I seem to have a bit of a stomach bug but could just be stress.
Hope the outlaws is good. Nice to have Mondays off too, what do you do?
Had a glass of wine and a chat with a lovely friend of mine so feeling happier.
Mal, sorry about the dog going, bet you were gutted, hope the run this morning went well and took your mind off it.
Sabbie, sounds like you were having a good night, hope the outlaws was okay.
Silver, glad they won for you, bet your Dad and Son were made up. I've taken lots of stick from mates and my girlfriend after confidently predicting England would get hammered, sure you would like to join in
Did my LSR? this afternoon and it went very well. Managed 8 miles in 1:11.08, took it very steady and kept an even slow pace. Legs were turning to jelly towards the end but was my furthest ever run so am really pleased. Tried my first ever Gel today about 4 miles in, not sure if it made much difference but it tasted better than I thought
Still no sign of the tights. Reckon the Fashion Police have impounded them
Ha Ha. You are right about Spain, bit like some of Wenger's teams. Always trying to score the perfect goal. Good when it comes off though. Hope you are right about David Villa but can't see it somehow
Still can't believe I went that far, ruined it mind you by having a Chinese takeaway for tea
You are right. I was planning a nice salad because I had a bacon sandwich this morning but got tempted
According to Garmin it was 1074 calories but I've got no idea how accurate these things are?
You gonna have a chance to get out tomorrow?
I'm not sure if I should go for the two club runs this week as I've got another race on Sunday. Don't want to do too much.
ditto Stripes I did 8 miles on Saturday also my furthest run so well done you too, took me 1.27 though hehe I loved it so much the weather was great and the scenery beautiful, I live very close to Althorpe House where Earl Spencer lives and where Lady Di is supposedly buried. So I ran to the back of the house and back and it was so nice I had one moment where I was turning round to head back and my legs felt abit weak but then soon after I seemed to be fine and got a 2nd wind and pushed on I even managed a rather nasty hill
Also I have to say I felt fine y/day, I thought my legs would ache more but they don't and today I feel good too will prob rest again today as I have to work till 5 everyday this week so home in the dark then will do club runs tues and thurs
I knew I was going out Sat night so had a few G&T's to celebrate haha really not use to drinking anymore but felt ok'ish yesterday
Mal - so sorry your pup had to go, was you able to find someone you know or taken back to original owner?
Silver - well done on your early morning run and great news on the footy result with you being there, bet it was lovely being with your dad and son
WOW! Well done for all the runs! You're all doing so well, impressive distances here today.
I didn't get out for mine because I have a stomach bug, I'm itching to get out there so maybe getting ill and having to stop was all my motivation needed.
Ha Ha Ha. I did have underwear on and T Shirt pulled down
May try them out on a few unsuspecting dog walkers
Sounds like you had a busy weekend. Well done on getting out last night. Which half have you entered?
Myself and Booey have the 305, I haven't really got to grips with all the features yet but am very impressed with it. Not even used the HRM but will do in the next couple of weeks.
Suzie - I am following the Hal Higdon Novice 2 Half Marathon 12 week training schedule. I started it a few weeks back so am repeating some weeks to take me up to the race
HM time ummmmm I am not sure, after taking 1.27 to do 8 miles maybe 3 hrs hehe, if I was to be honest I would like to achieve under 2.30. My running club think I will achieve that as based on my times with them they reckon around 2.20 to be honest I just feel proud that I am now thinking I can probably do a half decent job of it haha
I use a Garmin 305 and log all my runs on fetcheveryone.com and yes as guilty as Stripes and not used the HRM its a good bit of kit thou
OH dear Silver thats bad news getting a sore throat, I think there is lots of it going around. Over the past two weeks I have had a sore throat now and again but never developed into anything. I have to be honest I cannot remember the last time I had a cold, its been years, I am way to healthy
I would see how you feel later, if it just stays as a sore throat you may be ok to go running but if you get a full blown cold and are all bunged up not so nice
Am looking forward to my club run this evening
