Hi Mathschick and Chicaboo. Ian you have my deepest sympathy.
Cut the Gordian knot: decided to dump the Tempo run tomorrow, under pressure from the Boss, and just combined the mileage with today's...so 11 slow miles this morning. 33m for the week. Week one of Pfitzinger 18/55 done.
All the best to everyone
What a good morning, A 5 mile jog to the parkrun followed by pacing Mrs AGF to a 4 minute PB !!! Minced pies and a cuppa afterwards. Excellent turn out too. Good start to Christmas
Ian, thoughts with you...
NP, thanks, enjoy your Christmas runs
Nice Start Teknik !!
Nicely Done Moscow Flyer....
Spoons....beer/run/beer/run..... sometimes a beer is the right choice ....I see it as "recovery" from all the long miles !!
Excellent. How pleased is Mrs AGF and was it expected?
Well done on everyone's runs. 1.28 chalked up for me today. My hip was really stiff but it's been a couple of weeks since I've ran so hopefully it will be easier for tomorrow's run.
Evening all Welcome Mathschick and Chickaboo
Ian- best wishes
NP- page2? Look again
Spoons- excuses, excuses....
AGF- That's more like it! Well done
Gobi- have a good Xmas- well done on the Parkrun
MF- good running- know what you mean about the kids
A busy day for me today! 8 easy miles early on before the rest of the family were awake. Made custard for trifle, visited parents and swapped pressies, finished making trifle, made stuffing, made stock for gravy, made honey roast ham. Then got tomorrow's LR out of the way- 15.91m, so can eat and drink guilt free tomorrow. Should have been 16, but got so much of a shock at the end that I forgot to run the last part. Only got back to the Leisure Centre where I'd parked my car to find the gates shut and a sign saying they were closed until Tuesday. I went into panic mode at this point- not only because of the car, I could have run home, but because MY MISSUS' XMAS PRESENTS WERE HIDDEN IN THE BOOT!!!!!!! After a few minutes of hyper ventilating, I realised that there was no padlock on the gate. Thank you, God!!
Won't be on here or running after tonight until Boxing Day, so MERRY CHRISTMAS< EVERYONE
Just thought I would dip my toe into the 2012 thread (doesn't seem right with the correct spelling) merry xmas etc.. a said on the 2011 tread, not repeating it.
Hopefully in 2012 I will find some answers and be able to stop lurking and be able to post some running related topics
MrSpoons & NP,
Today's run didn't go according to plan which was 1.75 miles. I miscalculated when to turn round & ended up doing 2.14 miles !
Long run this morning. Couldn't shake the thought of Spoons in the North Sea...hope you enjoyed it!
Did 13m with the last 8 at goal MP...just about held on to it. Tough run this early in the schedule. I skipped tea last night as I was so stuffed from Xmas lunch, and I ran before breakfast this morning, so now feeling a bit glycogen depleted (cold and dizzy). Hello choccie milk.
Hope you're feeling okay now.
Excellent, lol at Mrs JD.
Santa got me some Lush goodies & a few other bits & bobs. This morning went out for a 2 mile run so tomorrow will increase the distance slightly if possible then next run is going to be on Saturday as back to work on Wednesday and work different shifts each day which plays havoc with my routine.
Glad to hear that. I couldn't even contemplate a run before breakfast even if it was only 1 mile.
Right, plan is to do at least two marathons in 2012 - but also, I'm looking at the Fellsman 28th/29th April....it is the 50th anniversary for it this year so likely to be a quite a big one. I'm alright at fell running having spent 2 months in the Lake District training for the Bob Graham - plan to do it 2013 (being out 4/5 hours everyday walking and running) so I reckon the hills shouldn't be that bad but 60 miles is a long way....longest distance I've ever run is a marathon (Beachy Head) so the question to the floor is "Can I train for the distance in 4 months or am I just kidding myself?"
Hope everyong had a good christmas and looking forward to the new year.
Xmas is cancelled in Spoons's house wrote (see)
Jason - I've read the DK book. It starts well but he starts to go on a bit towards the end.......
Goes on a bit? I'd call running 100m+ going on a bit Nearly finished it btw Well done on your run and dip. I felt like I'd had a dip in the sea today too
Rob- sounds like a plan
12m for me today in a howling gail and driving rain. Legs felt really heavy for first 4m, but was expecting that cos it's always the same if I miss a day. Back to normal by the end though- and had the wind behind me for the second half
Just checking in to say " hi" to you all.
Another nice day here and a nice run this morning. Still trying to find a marathon plan that suits; settling on a mix of runs with miles at / above hoped for pace .
Hi & good luck with plan hunting.
