Why am I still awake?
No I didn't run last night not even a quickie round the village it was raining and guess what, I just had an email from Run England chap he is ill and cant do tonight so its a quick 2.5 miles on the treadmill tonight that will have to do. I have a feeling my few days in Wales running are going to be wet. I would rather it was really cold but the forecast at the moment is looking like rain and more rain. I will check in often while away as folks have a laptop and I am sure I will have times of boredom haha
Silver - never used the heart rate monitor no, I really don't use mine to its full potential. I also don't download my runs from it as I log everything on fetcheveryone.com its such a great site, I have graph charts for my weight and everything its so good
Finishing about 3.45 today then I shall get up with hubby 2moz morning about 5 and head for the hills then cup of tea with the folks by 9 easy
I wish I had a treadmill too, it'd probably just gather dust but it's be nice to have the choice.
Stayed up until 4 in the end, partly Moo had an allergic reaction and partly my old friend insomnia.
Hope Mrs S isn't too cross with you Silver.
Booey, I hope you have a brilliant time in Wales, I love North Wales and went to uni in Bangor, nr Snowdonia. Loved it!
Mal, sorry you had a bad night, I often suffer with insomnia. Can be very frustrating and the next morning is always a right git! My treadmill has gathered dust since I ventured outside, only used it twice but it may come in handy in coming months.
Booey, have a lovely time in Wales, hope the weather allows you to do plenty of running.
Silver, I must confess that I haven't used the heart rate monitor yet either, mind you I had only had it for a couple of weeks before the lay off.
Silver is back in the doghouse haha
Yep get use to it, the silly season always causes loads of rows hehe
My husband always tells me how the divorce rate goes up in January, not sure if thats to try and keep me in check or remind him of what happened to the last wife hahahahahahaha
Well am off home for a tready run, next chat will be from the bleakness of those sheep covered hills
laters dudes *waves*
We can see you Silver
I'm always very, very encouraging if Mr Mal wants to go out, love any excuse to turn the tv off and read my book in absolute silence, bliss!
Didn't run tonight even tholugh I should've, there's always tomorrow.
A worthy test Silver!
Looking forward to tomorrow's run, I have a shiny new 3.5k route to try out when I'm not fighting 50mph winds and driving rain! I've eaten too much to go out tonight (my first ever smiley) I'd be (my second!)
How are you feeling now Stripes?
Sabbie, did you dust off your running shoes this week?
Feeling very nervous, the two weeks is up tomorrow and am dying to get out but also worried that it will all flare up again.
Leg feels fine but it hasn't had to do much recently!
Good luck Stripes.
Well done Silver.
Still can't work out how to make a photo small enough, and haven't picked a photo either. Smilies are easier!
Made it to wales by 9am already had a lovely run, I did 4 miles in 35.46 am still in shock as thats pretty quick for me infact I am starting to think I read the garmin wrong but I did look a couple of times, I will check it lol ran round in a loop from folks place down to the sea, had a look at the water then turned back and up to the village, nice little route to be honest
Silver - good for you getting out for a run, I watched the variety show what an absolute load of rubbish
Stripes - good luck with the run, I have fingers crossed for you all is ok just take it easy
Managed to get out. Did a 5k. Did loads of stretching and walking to warm up. Took it steady but couldn't believe how much I struggled. Didn't realise my fitness would have dipped so much so quickly. Sure it would come back fairly quickly if I can carry on running but not sure if I will be able to. Right leg a bit achy but not too bad, trouble is I seem to have developed a bit of a problem in my left knee. May only be slight but am feeling very jumpy and paranoid at the moment. Think I may try running upside down using my hands!
Ha Ha. Sure you could cope with that
I was sluggish in the legs to start with but the struggle was definitely a Cardio thing which surprised me.
Am definitely going to go out Saturday morning and see how it goes as its the only chance I'll get over the weekend.
Not sure about supports etc as the knee has never bothered me before.
