  • oh God ... I feared this may happen .... do I need to order more lube ???

  • image As if you haven't been stockpiling it for months Bruce!!!

  • I've been training, if you count 5k Parkruns with an 8 year old

    I have not been training at all. I haven't supped cider since last August.

    No wait - I'm drinking tea, there is tea isn't there. image Phew, I'm in with a chance.

  • I'm soooo glad you mentioned cider as i'd forgotten i've got a bottle in the fridge, hurrah!

  • My training REALLY isn't going well

    My carb-loading seems to be coming on no end though .. don't think I'll have any problems on the day on that score!

    Anyway, apart from the evident lack of training going on, how is everyone? I was going to go out for a run today, get up early and get out there, you know all that. Well I'm still sat here at half past 9 and CBA. My run over the hills is looking more like a flat run through the lanes, which will be fun. image Sunday drivers and all that.

  • Tough old day for me out on South Downs yesterday. Putting it behind me and thinking of it as a training run for two weeks time! Hopefully it'll go slightly better at Giants Head!

    image ow oowww. I thought taper was s'posed to be easy. That was just about the most painful run ever.

    soul destroying isn't it Mrs H-M ..... I went out for 10 yesterday morning (yes Goldie there were hills too!!)  and it was purgatory all the way round .. nothing there at all am now possibly planning a late last LSR on Weds before beginning my own personal descent in to tapir madness !

    I ran Luxembourg night marathon yesterday and I was mentioning to Vixx about the hills on that one. He mentioned that they werent really hills - Giantshead would show me what hills are :/

  • Marathon training? - I know,  I'll do consecutive Sunday morning 10K races. Flat ones.

  • Sorry non trainers but I had a right cracker at SD marathon yesterday. At several stages I did think the next one would be worse, not good. Got to love a Saturday marathon for the re-toxing though. How did you go in Luxembourg Emmy?

  • sir ... sir .. *raises hand in air* ... KateF is cheating sir .. she's practising ... its not fair sir!!

  • Naughty step for me then. I have also been cider drinking and cake eating so am almost an elite.

  • People who actually run aren't allowed on here....

  • goldbeetlegoldbeetle ✭✭✭

    There are 13 places in the 10k left

  • I might have to go in for the 10k, GB, as prob not going to be on hols as expected due to ill elderly parents on both sides!
    Shame there's no space in the Marathon as a friend of mine is running it on her own and i could have tried to do it with her if i hadnt been planning to be on hols! image

    10k will have to do and then i can cheer her on instead image (when she comes in 7 hours later she says!)

  • image Max's Mum, you never know, if you offer to swap and run the marathon while she does the 10K, she might say yes (I know I would) image
