DID IT! Half an hour run in the freezing driving wind and rain. Brrrrrr! Took a photo of myself for posterity afterwards! Managed 3.5km in 27 mins 50. I'm impressed given the weather!
Soaked to the skin and looking very silly, it's on Mr Mal's phone so I'll see if I can upload tomorrow afternoon. I'm off to make a hot chocolate and hide under the duvet with Baby Moo.
Hope your all ok, did we all experience the wind last night god how bad was it 3am this morning I thought it was gonna shatter our windows not nice
I was only in work yesterday till 12 and was so busy hence not getting on here
Well Silver you will be proud, I did have a drink at our xmas do Fri night, I paced myself well and had about 3 glasses of red wine all night and downed a bottle of water before bed got up around 8ish at hotel and had a full english hehe got home mid morning so left the run until around 2pm and did local route of 3.42 miles and felt fine
Sunday I got out late morning before the rain came and did 6.25 miles, not as far as I wanted but it tipped me over the 300 miles mark to date so I am now officially a novice haha
Running clubs tonight and tomorrow (weather pending) then I cant wait to get to Wales on Thurs to put in some serious running and distance hopefully. I will be doing 10 by Xmas........I will I will I will haha I keep thinking, crap its not long to the HM now
Well done on getting out Silver and Mal
Not heard from Stripes hope he is ok. *shouts* stripes where are you
Booey! Lovely to see you. T'was quiet on here without you! Well done for getting out there and congratulations on achieving novice status!! When is the HM? What do you become after a novice and how many miles to get there?
STRIIIIIIIIPESSSS?? Hope all is ok with you and you are recovering.
Sabbie, it was fun splashing deliberately through the biggest puddles coz I couldn't have got wetter if I'd tried!
I'm going to get a bottle of wine in (very rare treat in my house) and wrap a mountain of presents tonight. I'm excited!
Good luck today for anyone venturing out.
I don't think your a wuss at all, like I said before I don't have kids and cant even imagine what its like to be honest. To have a night in doing nothing must be so nice for you with the hectic schedule of taking them here there and everywhere.
How do you feel about your looming HM do you feel like to still want to do it? I keep thinking even if I do 10 by Xmas I still have to do the other 3.1 on the 11th March, its a daunting feeling
Well I just text running club lady but she is off today and ran this morning, so just waiting on another reply to see whos going so I may not be after all. I think if I don't do that I may just do a couple of miles round the village.......with Wales looming I don't feel guilty
I have a few races in mind leading upto the HM would be good if you did Silverstone at least we could say hello
Sounds like I've misssed plenty. Well done on the running everyone. Not really felt like I could come on here as I'm definitely not a runner at the moment
Leg much better and really want to get out but nervous about doing more damage so not sure when to attempt it. The two weeks is up on Thursday but I have only done one small treadmill run in over three weeks now so will be way behind schedule for 19th February
Been doing the stretches every day but not sure I'm doing them quite right as the one that targets the damaged muscle is very awkward
All in all a bloody depressing state of affairs, just to add to it I've started to put weight on again, difficult not to eat and drink at this time of year
PS. Silver you aren't missing much not having the CD for the 305, the software is crap, the Garmin Connect website is much better.
You'll love the watch once you work out all that it does. If you have any trouble I'll try to burn you a copy of the CD if you want, or failing that I could just send you mine, doubt I'll need it for a while.
I think that the not ruinning and eating go hand in hand, its almost like I've regressed to my old self
The only good thing is that I haven't got much of a sweet tooth, I like chocolate but I can leave sweets and cakes alone no trouble. My downfall is savoury stuff, especially rubbish like crisps.
Those Christmas special Turkey Pringles are getting a right hammering this week
Stripes hello good to hear from you even though you are having a tough time try not to worry to much, you have been sensible and rested and hopefully easing yourself back gradually will pay dividends. Putting weight on is purely through you not running it really will go as quick. Try to stay positive and try a short run on Thurs and see what you think and don't not come on here just because your not running, we miss you and can give you support
Silver, yeah wierd we all talk to each other about allsorts through our computers but would just walk past each other in the street
There are a couple of ring tones I want but can I download them to my phone I dunno what I am doing wrong I want Dominic the Donkey tune and the Aldi advert parrot....any of you seen it.......like it like it like it like it like it like like like haha I love it yes I know I am sad haha
Stripes, hope you'll still comment even if you're not running much.
Silver, waiting for the GU after your quick run!
Booey, I have no idea what you're referring to which I secretly pleased about!.
You ate all the Triangles!
No food in tonight. naughty or good but probably just as well to stop me snacking on the sofa whilst feeding Moo.
