Wow - been a while since I've been on here, prompted by watching a little race on TV yesterday.
Sad to hear you didn't get in, here's fingers crossed for you all next year
Hi Trigg, I trust all is well?
Not running much, only one race last year, VLM. Been training on and off, but ruptured my achilles tendon again at end of Jan, so really done very little and hence no VLM this year.
Glad you and VB enjoyed the spectating, we did consider coming up for the weekend to watch, but it clashed with a friend's wedding. I jokingly told a few people on the Saturday night bash that I was running VLM the following morning, and some did actually believe it. I must still look the part and can obviously talk the talk even if I cant walk the walk.
Notwithstanding that, at lunchtime today I did my first run in about 3 weeks, a gentle 3.53 miles, felt ok'ish and tendon only a little sore now. I'll be back!
It's always tragic when there is an incident such as the man dieing, I guess the only consolation is that he was doing something he enjoyed, and that he has now raised a very large amount of money for his chosen charity.
Catch you all soon!
yea Trigger i entered before my run at 5am this morning - im glad i didnt wait!!!
Daz you were missed at the VLM Expo. I was looking out for you. I have been using my bike to stay fit if you can call me fit .. LIke Trigger I have done the silly thing and applied yet again.Still will be nearly 70 by then so getting closer to a good for age time no doubt...stay healthy and keep in touch...
I too had a moment of insanity and applied for 2015. I must be mad. Maybe we can have a reunion! Better get running. Have managed a slow run/jog plod but nothing more... Oh dear!
Yipeeee it looks like we may have a get together.....come on VLM let us all in next year... you know we deserve it.
Start slow and easy and you should be well into a half marathon by the Autumn. Just try to increase upto 10 miles and the rest will be easy... Now tell us which one you may be trying for and who knows we may be able to join you....
PS.. if in doubt ask Rio...... xxx
Right of to Vienna for a few days to see my son and our new granddaughter see you Monday xx
