Suzie, if you look back a few pages Mal posted a link to the 305 with its Amazon price analysis. Very useful tool if you do ever consider buying one.
Amazing that we there are now four of us on the thread all doing our first HM within a month of each other, all broadly in the south and all different!
Silver, hope you feel better make the run tonight. I get no sympathy if I ever get 'man-flu' I think the ladies on here let you off lightly
Watch out for the late news tonight folks, the 'tights' will be seen in public for the first time at around 7.00 tonight so I expect to be in a cell at the local nick by about 7.15
I still haven't started wearing my coat yet I wear a long sleeved wicking top and sleeveless hi viz thin gillet over that. After about a minute I am totally warm, also not really needed to wear full leg tights.
The hi viz coat I have is very thin so I think I will need another coat for peak winter
Cant wait to wear my new cap tonight
also did I tell you my OH got me a light that you clip onto your cap peak from the pound shop haha everytime I go run club they always say "oh how good the pound shop light is still working" hahaha
Just got out of the Police Station. The ladies leaving the local Bingo Hall have decided not to press charges...Phew
Yep I too had a good run with the club, we did 4.53 miles, luckily only after a couple of mins I remembered to switch the garmin on we are all useless at remembering that I actually ended up running with a couple of faster people which I feel did me good as I pushed myself more than normal. They were also good to me and slowed up in places Lady who has the hip problem had someone else running with her so I thought no point in me running slower aswell, I shall be running with her Thurs night though.
It was definately colder last night so I wore tights and also another sweatshirt over my wicking top, it matches my hi viz gillet haha how sad, oh and also matches the new cap very sad lol
Feel on quite a high at the moment, after my LSR on Sat and having no aches or pains since I can see that there is defo progress which is good
They may wait and send you the next issue, I got one a couple of weeks ago so the next one will be in a couple of weeks
Its great to feel good, especially when you know you are putting in the effort as we all progress we are going to get our down times but we have each other to encourage on we are tough we can do it
Well done on the club runs Booey and Silver.
Bad news on the cold Sabbie, don't think I would run with one but I'm a bloke so it would automatically be upgraded to flu
Suzie, I bought a runnnig jacket, wore it once and not used it since as I got too sweaty, got myself a Gilet instead and wore it last night, much better since it gives the body a chance to breathe.
Legs a bit achy after last night.
We did 11.46kms(Garmin now totally on kms since I worked out how to change it)
I managed to turn it on and have it ready to rumble from the start this week
Was a bit strange because we ran a lot of my usual route and I didn't enjoy it as much as the previous twice when I have been venturing into the unknown
Tights were very comfortable but did wear shorts on top else the Bingo ladies may well have complained for real
Not sure whether to go on Thursday as I want to be as fresh as possible for Sunday's race as I'm running with a mate from the match who is ten years younger than me and much quicker!
Stripes - see how you feel on Thurs, maybe a short run on your own or just wait until your race
Silver, I bet its done the trick in more ways than one
Not sure what to do, may take Booeys advice and just do a short run on my own. I know I can't do Tuesday next week though as I'm going to a gig so will probably see how I feel tomorrow afternoon.
I get really upset and annoyed when I hear about some of the things people have to put up with when out running. One of the ladies at the club was telling me that they once had an incident where some idiot on a bike tried to ram into one of the front runners, not knowing that there were thirty odd people coming up behind!
