She is home but not in the best form.
Maybe you should check she is okay if you know her well enough? Doesn't sound at all safe running on her own in those circumstances.
Well done on your run Suzie and PB time thats great Race PB will be even better
On that note re PB's - does everyone only class races as PB's? Thats probably a silly question as we all run faster in a race so it should always be better I record all my runs, time and distance everytime I go out but discussing PB's I would only give race times......so 5K, 10K races I have done I would take my best time as my PB as its professionally/legally recorded for everyone to see/view where our personal runs are recorded my our own means. I hope that makes sense
Club run tonight
Yeah. It does make sense. I have as you know only done one 10k race so I count that as my PB(It is anyway) therefore Sunday will be strange as I can only achieve a PB or a PW
Having read lots of stuff on here I can't imagine ever wanting to run flat out in training again in order to try to break a PB.
A PB has to be in a race really as it needs to be over a measured distance doesn’t it?
Then again if you run a regular route and just want to measure your progress its ok to time yourself each time you go out.
Since I got to running 5k’s I have always timed myself and compare progress each time I go out.
May get out at lunch today by the way – v.overcast here but no rain – should be perfect.
Blimey Booey – your music taste’s a bit hardcore isn’t it? Makes my MoR stuff seem well tame!
Still can’t believe that fella listed a track from the Karate Kid II soundtrack!
Just received this weeks Parkrun newsletter which coincidentally is all about PBs.

LOL yeah my music taste is very varied to be honest, love anything thats abit out there and keep my music knowledge upto date enjoying the dubstep thats hit us at the moment was big into the club scene back in the day and I really really miss it lots some days
I still go to alot of gigs and some of them are completely the other end of the spectrum lol
Still ill. Should go to the doctors but don't want to. Over a week of no running now.
Feeling too rubbish to catch up on the thread so will just say I hope you're all good and running well.
Dubstep is the latest music craze
Oh dear Sabbie hope your feeling better soon, you cant go to work like that if your a hairdresser can you
I have done 4 5K and 2 10K races, I ran them on my own its easier. Unless you can find someone totally your pace there is no point you will seperate anyhow
Mal oh dear your still poorly, thats crap
Sabbie - lol you wont get lost, courses are mapped out and there are marshalls everywhere - get one booked you will love it
Well my club run tonight is not happening now, my own choice though, just had a text to say time moved to 7.30. The lady who won the ballot for the VLM with the club is injured but desperate for a shortish run to see how she gets on but can't make till 7.30. So the other two girls have said they will go at that time to support her (they do alot of their races together) so I understand totally. Other club runners going out at 7 will leave me for dust and no way am I going to hamper them.
So I have made the decision to get home from work and go out on my own round the village (although I suppose I could treadmill) will be nice to give it a try for the first time and try and stay within the street lights hehe its a big village and very long so I should manage ok and 5.30ish plenty of people still about, even if I only do 3miles it all adds up
Well the sickness is definitely going round isn’t it? Sorry to hear you are both unwell.
Mal – you’ve had a really rough time lately what with the kids and the pooch. Can I suggest the following foods as a pick-me-up
Fruit – Any
Stew or Cottage Pie – with loads of bread!
Soup – Tomato
Crisps – Cheesy Doritos
Chocolate – Any
Haribos – Starmix or Tangtastics
Sabbie – good you took the day off I wouldn’t want you cutting my hair in that state. I’m still looking to run my first proper race (I did a Parkrun in September) but I’m too chicken to enter one and a bit nervous about turning up on my own at the start tbh. Shame you are in the back of beyond as we could enter one together. You’d probably leave me standing though at your pace. With Reading HM getting closer Ill think more seriously about entering a few in the new year but for now I’ll just keep getting out there when I can – and the family let me out on my own for a bit!
You are on here lots today, trying to make up for being neglected yesterday Silver?
Thanks for both the concern and the suggestions. I will try out as many as possible as soon as I'm better, maybe not all at the same time! I have had a rough time lately but hopefully things are improving and Mr Mal is being really lovely and supportive which makes such a huge difference.
Booey, good luck with your village run tonight, hope it goes well. I live at the edge of town and have to pass all the pubs to stay within street lights, it'd be fine if I was a vision of lovliness running passed them but alas, I'm not quite there yet!
Sabbie, I hope you get better soon. Hope you get lots of rest.
I'm dying to get out for a run, shame this happened just as I was seeing improvements. Parkrun as soon as I'm back to form, I'm hoping I can improve on my first time or make it without walking.
Mal - keep your chin up, once you are better that first run will be great
I don't worry about being a vision of lovliness, to be honest I don't think anyone that knows me would realise it was me I am a vision of hi vizzyness haha
Thanks Guys – I’m so pleased I got out and in the sun aswell – that’s the first time it hasn’t been dark or foggy while I’ve been running in a few weeks.
Someone mentioned getting some off road trainers to me which may not be a bad idea as mine are slipping around in the mud now. I must look for some – can anyone suggest anything?
Mal you are right I’ve been on here far too much today - almost as much as Booey! J – but at least you guys are replying and I feel loved again! Don’t worry about not getting out just enjoy a bit of R and R at home for a few days.
Sabbie – where’s my toastie? L
Cool - good web site too
Could be a good Xmas pressie Booey! Think my feet deserve a bit of rugged luxury after all those miles.
That web-sites good too - loads of stuff and some good ofers. Ill be on there again tonight for sure!
