this will be the fourth time I have gone, and no, I can't say I enjoy it, but I think it is a good workout and makes me do something a bit different to running. The saddle is particularly uncomfortable! I have never really enjoyed any kind of 'exercise class' - I think I like being on my own! I also hate the music they play at these things..... oh, sounds like I am talking myself out of it! Well, I am going to give it a go and see, while my mileage is lower it is good for me to do it I think, but I do find myself clock watching and counting down for the end! If that continues by the end of the month I'll just go to the gym instead.
Am hoping that when my ankle is totally sorted I will start doing parkruns on Saturdays, maybe next week if this weeks mileage goes well...
Been Lurking as still not running.
I have decided to ring Docs on Mon and am going to go Boxing Swimming and ycling to keep my fitness up. Im bak on my Slimming World diet so I dont put all ym weight back on.
Hope everyone has a good Weekend.
take it easy Ecky
Wishing you and all at Ecky mansions better
Thanks Phantom. I will behave I promise . Its just sooooooo frustrating though. I hope our likkle Loula is OK too.
I hope so too By Eck. He is a nie Doctor though.I will just be honest and tell hime that if I dont run you will be having to pay for my councelling .lol.
helloooooooooooooooooooooo*boings in * -honey im hooooome!!
i had a lickle lie in and went for my run about 8:45 today and allowed myself to do just over 10miles...and no more on frannys advice. felt fine and went very easy , was 1hr 30ish...feel better now,bit croaky but am ok
phantom, i think your cloak would be superb swishing about on a night run lol...glad you got out for a run. you are doing brill hilly!!!! thats right near my house, i can see the hill if i stand outside!!!.....shall i meet you there and do it too?
crikey i cant keep up either with the posts
chili, i think im being a tad over keen with the 100miler...its that or comrades i reckon.....the south downs mara sounds fab...but its a saturday isnt it and miss llb has dancing , also by that time in june there could be shows/exams they are doing.....
ecky((((((((((((hugs))))))))))))))))))))))....glad you have some alternative training to do though...and tht you are seeing Dr
AF, boss, i have behaved today and done lower mileage
ecky, glad you have made a dr appointment. Have you tried seeing a podiatrist or a physio? I know they are not cheap, but even if your dr refers you (and mine didn't though he told me it would be useful) you will still be waiting for ages to see one on the nhs I think. Well, see what the dr says, but if you can afford it I would go to a pod and a physio - but try the pod first.
Actually, almost found myself enjoying the spinning today, and went up to the gym and did 3K on the rower and then some weights afterwards, so feeling very pleased with my cross training! Could feel that I should have taken a snack or some sports drink with me though, as muscles were feeling slightly shaky, so treated myself to a tracker bar before showering and coming home.
loula - well done on managing to hold yourself back and doing lower mileage today - you will be glad of it when you do the marathon! Just wish I could do 10 miles in an hour and a half! Will that ever happen? Was there a time when you lot were as slow as I am? My best 10k time this year was 1:18 and my half marathon time in Dec was 2:50 (mind you it was very hilly!). Do you think I will ever see a sub 60 10K and sub 2:30 or even less HM?
the times don't bother me too much, but it would be nice not to be right at the back all the time! (OK, I was nowhere near the back at the race for life)
That sounds great Loula More hill runs first for me i thinkill buy you a pink gin cocktail after
I was worried that you had been sideswiped by your cold so v happy that you were out running and all boing boing
phantom , have jst been looking for pics frm tht hill run, not many as it was the first one last year....if you google it there are some views frm the start i found my time from last year-57mins.but it was good fun...blimey..gin? dont think ive EVER tried it
sorry i didnt log in this a.m and say i was off out, but it was hijacked my missy lol
mathschick, you wil DEF do sub 60 for a 10k. i think my first 10k was 1hr 10 or something...you will soon be knocking the time off just you wait..
Gosh what alot of posts..you have all been very busy and well done to those who have managed to get a run in...
Gold star for Loula......doing your 10 miles....well done....
No running for me today...feeling a bit whacked...so just went for a lovely woodland walk of 4 miles with hubby.....was very cold and windy but sunny...... Got club run tomorrow which will involve a few hills/mountains....6miles or so....
Byeck...I tend to have chocolate milk as my recovery drink or an sis recovery sachet.....Glad your feeling much better.
Ecky...so pleased you are going to get your foot seen to ...lets hope they can shed some light on the situation....ypur boxing will certainly keep up your fitness levels.
Have a good day everyone....
......Ecky we have green light from da boss....GO GO GO.....all alerts out to lil'ampton...!! franny? chili? by'eck? wanna be norty wiv us on the vino?????????
i had a nice wander around town after lunch and miss llb bought some bookies with her xmas money. i looked for some DK books but to no avail...i dont think ultras are a 'well known' sport over here....will have to pop on amazon later ..
aw, phantom, thank you for your concern...very sweeti feel a bit better today , not as rubbish as yesterday. had more slepp and a lie in so i think it did me good.
franny, i missed the xc as i was at my mum and dads. i have seen it before and there was snow on ground
by'eck, im in the mile challenge and so is franny, um, pushchair jog/walk? i dunno, you will have to ask Bruce or KK , they are the adjudicators i think lol
I bought a running book today- Feet in the clouds by Richard Askwith which is about fell running. They had the Dean books in Waterstones,he looks very similar to me I thought, but didn't want to spend £10 on a paperback. An Amazon job sometime.
LLB- I try and do a bit of speedwork during my solo runs but often forget!!
What is a tempo run?
Well this is my last post probably until after lunch you can all go CRAZY!!!!!!!!!

So If I want to do a 1/2 marathon in 1.40 I just run at the required pace. Sounds simple- can cope with that.
Right definetly off now Sausage Cassrole is for tomorrow.MeatLoaf tonight- which I love. When I prepare it I always put my favourite album on Bat out of Hell by Meattloaf and sing relly loudy and badly....Mrs AF doesn't like my singing however!!
