Thanks Kiwi, will definately be after your advice going to do a couple of 10ks then half marathon later in the year it would be nice to get a bit quicker at that so any advice about acheiving that will be much appreciated. Definately not running as my blooming knee is still niggling. So would rather rest now than start training again too soon and make things worse.......you see I have been listening to you
so have you done Bristol Half if so what's it like ?
in a band ???gosh not only an elite marathon runner but a singer as well blimey
ooooo and it may be Bristol will make up my mind tomorrow so,another possible one for the Bristol Half marathon jazz hand running club massiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive exciting !!!
Is it a heavy metal/ rock band KAFFEEG. That is my other love.
I am going to put a spanner in the works here !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not done the Bristol half, but have done the Cardiff Half.
The general opinion here with the runners I know is that the Bristol half was a little disappointing. It is big with an elite field, however ,as a run it was not very attrative apparently. Running along big long main roads etc. and the feedback I got was as I say slight disappointment.
However I have done the Cardiff Half, and I loved it. It has wonderful crowd support and the Welsh made us feel very special when we were running. It is pancake flat and I have also vowed I would run it again !!
Your choice, but I know which one I would do without hesitation .
Hope everyone is doing ok. I had a shocker of a run this morning You'd never think that I'd ran 26.2 miles last weekend!
@Kaffeeg - great idea to join races - if I was closer to Bristol i'd love to run it.
My runs planned are:- 20k Brussels - 27th May- Marathon du Medoc - 8th September- Royal Parks Half Marathon - 7th October- Cologne Half Marathon - 14th October- Great South Run - 28th October.
Am trying to find some more runs at the moment to "fill the gap".... What about everyone else?
Plenty of time for that Pip. Enjoy your moment of success. More will come in time if you want them.
Oh dear. Keith Lemon has come on TV. I can't stand the bloke, Time for the documentary channel I think.
@Pip - take your time and do what feels right for you. For me - within an hour of finishing and the initial hurt had worn off - I *knew* I needed to do another but i've tried to plan my races as far in advance as possible to make the most of discounts and travel plans (e.g. booking plane tickets).
How is everyone else doing? Enjoying the week of glory?
thanks all was beginning to feel a bit lazy about only doing a couple of races
Kiwi NCIS is on now better than keith lemon [ although I don't really know who he is ]
last weeks was a void
you all gotta do it again
Hi Emma McGlynn
That is absoulutely fine . Any cross training will be quite ok for you. Just no running. I think i may have to tell someone off for going out for a run just 1 week after the marathon . I can't remember who it was now !!!!
when I read their post I thought oh oh someone's going to get told off by Kiwi, not allowed to go running, I am being good
just think this time last week ....... glad it wasn't this week, it is blowing a gale
kiwi ..... getting very, very,very bored now though and its only a week !!!!
Yeah , I love AC/DC. Luckily for me my daughter likes them too. You sound like you are pretty talented musicians. My sister is a very talented pianist ( as was my dad) and actually writes her own stuff. I think she has actually finally either sold something or got a contract of some sorts, not sure but she is contact with a few people in the States I think. She has her own FB and my space page etc. and website.
Sorry to bore you.Probably being the proud older brother here !!! She was also a fantastic 100 metre hurdler. NZ schools record holder and champion and represented New Zealand at schools level in Australia.
Bit of an all rounder.
