Welcome mummy, can't wait to take you out with your shiny new trainers (won't stay that way long ) and of course the new top
Opinions folks: I'm so proud of my mum, I'm looking at c25k but building up to week 1, until mum can run 5k continuously. Then to look at building up from there towards her goal! Much to my admiration and amazement, it's to run the 2013 Great North Run!!! A HM!!!! Did I mention I'm so proud??? Better get my running in gear or she'll be running rings around me
Hope that everyone is having a great weekend and getting some fab runs in. Roy, we already know of your brilliant park run! That was brilliant.
I'm feeling so upbeat at the moment, just want to go running
Well I'm disappointed, come back on and not a word from anyone, I thought we were the chatterbox not just the tight crew
Been out twice this morning, first with mum (let her tell you about it), then on my own, did 2.41k in 16.05 with wind for the first k so much so I felt like I was standing still!!!
Subject to not being sore tomorrow I'm planning on a 5k run just to see if I can do it, wish me look!
hey guys not managed to get on this much this weekend though i was at an awful party last night and managed to have a look at the thread on my phone and it really cheered me up just didnt manage to comment, and didn't get the 'ontoast' joke last night, but the penny dropped this morning and i burst out laughing
Ange how good is this, your mum aiming for a half maathon, thats exciting stuff, must be great having your mum as a running partner
Welcome to the thread Mrs Ma'amy, great to see you've enjoyed your first run and even invested in a new pair of trainers that brilliant so how many times a week does the c25k plan get you out? i haven't had a chance to look at it yet but does sound really good good luck with the rest of your training, you'll b round the half marathon before you know it
Hope go-karting goes well today, and also Ange.......hows your wee dad, hope he's recovering well and keeping his knee rested?
Roy- aka - RoadRunner lol, well done on your time thats unbelievable, so good you must be so proud. i reckon its time to ge the tights on, you've been threatening us with them all week but i think now is crunch time lol GET THEM ON!!!
so is your birthday Monday 30th? and on your day off u lucky bugger lol mines is Tuesday 31st gonna b the tender age of 23, groing up time is approaching nearing the mid twenties, though that'l b u slap bang in the middle of them joint birthday wine run is a must lolol
i think us all doing a 10k together in the future is a great idea, what a laugh we'd have ankle feels a little stiff today but nothing i haven't run on before so gonna go out a light run later today FINALLY! this has been most boring demoralising week not being able to run desperate to get back on the horse lol
Happy running everyone
Hey, good to know that you are all still there.
K - sorry party wasn't so good, but glad that you seem to be having a good weekend and getting lots of rest on that ankle.
Roy - have we braved the tights yet, and more so are we going to be seeing pics???
Looks like 31st is def party time, will have a glass of vino for you both, oh so young! Making me feel old, and yes mum I know you are obviously older still.
Roy - your right, I am so very proud of my Ma'amy, she did so very well this morning, especially into the head wind. Mum lives at the top of a hill and the best route is along the flat ish bit, but it is surrounded by open fields so you def feel the wind.
Dad is doing good, getting up and about bit more often, but so much bruising!
Lunch time now before heading off karting Just hope that my arms hold out after my push ups this morning, can feel the burn
Have fun at work Roy, good luck with the run tomoz.
I would say a 10k prob Oct sort of time, if not early next year to give time to build up to it. Any suggestions???
push ups and runs, putting me to shame here ange, gonna need to get circuits set up in the garden today i think lolol.
AAHHHH whats the chances of that my fellow aquarian.....want to know two interestinf facts bout the 31st of January....asides the fact thaqt we were born then......the first monkey ever launched into space was on January the 31st, and it was the day that sellotape was first ever out to buy lolol, remember this, never know wen it might come in handy haha.
virtual webcam lol, thats hillarious, wont b attractive on my part. i no, i'm just havin drinks in the local on the sat before cause everyone is rooked so no wild party plans unfortunately . yeah u guys book a weekend 10k n i'm there
I'm out seeing a band on Sat 28th so could poss have a drink, and I will have done my run too so should be ok to have.
With regards the 10k, which part of the country do we want to look in?
I try to stick to sweatshop for trainers as they do a full analysis to make sure you're getting the right ones for you, then either sweatshop or sports direct for other gear.
ange i say have several drinks on sat in our honour. if i'm 23 and roy is 25, should meet in the middle and aim for 24 drinks skittle bombs r the future!
i'm easy, i'll jog down to England, south might b a tad far but with enough notice i could sort train or something.
Sweatshop online r excellent just now i feel
I would say go for something Newcastle, Manchester or Liverpool type way My thought anyway.
OK, really have to go get ready to go kart, have to try and do well!
have fun x
hahaha course woman can drive lol, the ones in my house drive me up the wall
thats so nice of you Roy, as long as your definately not gonna use it then sure i'll take it, going to shop next week to get my gait done as promised
first event is april 1st, just a 5k but looking forward to it, then next ones aren't till May, got a 10k and a HM!!!
looking at booking anymore yourself?
i know havent heard from some folk in a while but maybe its harder for some folk to find time to get online, luckily i can log in every now and then in work and stuff.
Rachel, excellent music tastes, were chase and status good live? great that your still keeping up with your training, 18 mins solid must b tiring, i'm only managing 12 mins, walking 1. how long has it takin you to get to 18? x
Rachel - Brilliant increase in time/distance, no wonder you are proud!
Agree with you on K booking so many races, I'm not brave enough yet either, but do like the idea of us all doing a 10k later in the year, sure us girlies will stick roughly together while Roy races off
Well, as you'll have guessed I'm back from go-karting, Carl was proud of my driving today, good speed, got some over taking, and put up a fight when over taken Only thing is don't do push ups before karting, my arms are knackered!!!
Looking for food again then to drive back south
thats brilliant rachel thats only been like just over a fortnight, well done you just keep doing what your doing and before long you'll b a "proper runner" lolol
tbh, races r great used to do them before my accident, mostly just 10k's. i remember my first, hadn't trained properly but i got on far better than what i had trained for as the buzz of it all gives you a real adrenaline boost, i always tend to come in at the 55 minute mark, some people sprint ahead and do it in half an hour, others walk the whole route in 2 hours so theres always people ahead and behind you. seeing all the charities, causes and family and friends that other members r running for really make it quite emotional but its a lovely spirit throughout the whole race. supporters cheer all the way and you honestly end up enjoying yourself so its not something you should b frightened of, should all try one in next couple of months and see what i mean. ;D
