Hello HS (and anyone else who may be popping in)
That’s a great photo, considering how far into the run it was you look very fresh and relaxed.
Well done on your 9.25 miles today. It’s a lovely (but often elusive) feeling when you are able to maintain a good steady pace “feeling easy”. You certainly seem to have regained your form again.
Our 5k ended up being cancelled last night due to the weather that had been forecast for yesterday evening, so instead I did some hill repeats at the local park in the morning before it got too windy and wet. This evening I joined in a session with an alternative running group that meets on Wednesdays at the coast. It tends to be a mixture of running and circuits, but always something different. Tonight was skipping, sprints, press ups, more sprints then relays. All done in a stiff wind on the seafront. I’m now typing this in a changing cubicle at the swimming baths (I’m only here to use the shower, not for swimming) then I’ll go along to the Beefeater next to the Premier Inn and have a coffee. After that I’ll walk along to meet Steve who’s at a meeting at the sailing club. Then home.
I hope everyone is ok and just really busy. HS and I are worried about you!
Good evening HS, (we’ll have to stop meeting like this, people will talk )
Well done for keeping up with your club coach while running up a hill, particularly as she was on a bike. I suppose in a strange sort of way it helped you maintain a good pace uphill. I bet she was impressed though!
It did feel a bit bizarre typing on my phone while in the changing room, a definite first for me. I don’t suppose I’ll be doing it again, it just so happened that I had time to kill before meeting Steve so I decided to drink my water and check my emails before leaving, I was quite tired and there was a convenient bench, so I sat down and saw your post about getting lonely and thought I’d let you know you hadn’t been deserted.
The weather continues to be windy and very cold, but today was a rest day so I was only out in it briefly to go to the supermarket. Tomorrow looks equally as bad with sleet and possible snow for Saturday. When will spring arrive?
Well done on your run today HS and I hope you enjoy your meal tonight (and beer).
Sorry to hear your cough is lingering on WtnMel, I had something similar last year and it took a while to go completely. It’s very frustrating when that happens. Take it easy if you get out with your club tomorrow.
Well I’ve been out with the Wednesday group tonight and now I’m shattered! So just a quick update from the changing cubicle. I did manage to get out yesterday HS, I ran about 4.5 miles while Steve did about 7 slowly on his bike and needless to say he bumped into a neighbour who was also out on his bike so they stopped for a chinwag. (I say needless to say because I’ve never known anyone like Steve for bumping into acquaintances wherever we go, either old school friends, old workmates, various relatives and friends, but mostly old rugby teammates.)
Tonight our session started with repeating a loop of running up a hill then down a flight of steps, then sprinting to one further lamppost on each repeat. We did that for 20 minutes, then did hill repeats up a different slope for 10 minutes.As I’d been shopping all afternoon in town I was flagging somewhat towards the end.
Anyway I have to meet Steve now and start our journey home. So time for a quick shower I think!
