Last day at school over and done with (I'm a teacher). Ate too much at buffet lunch today, but while many went to the local to celebrate the end of term, I celebrated with a 7.72m slow recovery run. Last run in the dark for a while too
Just spent a pleasant hour or so reading through the thread and thought I would rejoin (I posted on the first page).
I am doing Sussex marathon on 1st April, aim is to get round - it will be my first. I am slow but happy to stay that way and build up the mileage steadily. (11 Dec I did a HM in 2:50, there were some horrible hills but I wouldn't have been that much quicker without the hills).
Currently suffering with a cold and a dodgy ankle, so on my second week of no running. Ankle should be ok to run on as soon as the cold has gone . At least the cold is forcing me to rest. Will have a fairly easy week or so of getting back into the swing of it when I am fit again.
Like some of the other first timers I keep wondering it I am going to be able to cover the 26.2 miles, but in a strange way I am really determined to do it.
Parkrun for me tomorrow, probably no running on Sunday (hubby put his foot down) but back with a vengeance on Monday. Happy Christmas everyone!
Good luck Mathschick......
I have parkrun too. Will run the 4 miles there and then jog the3 miles around the course with Mrs AGF.....then come home had feedmyself nuts, chablis, mince pies etc.......mmmmm
MF- glad you're feeling better
NP- enjoy the break
Gobi- can't/won't run on Xmas Day-got a 5 year old who will want to be up at 4 am and I'm the head chef in our house- and we've got 7 coming for dinner! I'm hoping to squeeze 2 runs in tomorrow to make up for it- but not sure I can squeeze them in....
Good day for me today- Xmas shopping finished, chocolate fondant log made and stage 1 of trifle complete (I won't be eating either of these!). 17.10m run at 7.45 av. Glass of wine in my hand now
Merry Christmas, everyone!
I'm planning the same, not sure how far I'll be going but if I can get back up to 3 miles by the end of the New Year break I'll be happy.
Hi, welcome to the thread & good luck with the plans.
Hope everyone has a good christmas.
Hugs to you & your family.
