I went!!
Took the dog. They’ve made a new path to the back of some woods I go past on one of my loops, so now I can go that way instead and incorporate more off road.
Was a really nice run and felt good to be out there

Really sore today but loving reading this thread. Jogged s mike last night chasing my son on a bike and walked three but after the half on Sunday I think my legs are sulking

Tempo run in the rain this morning. Really had to talk myself into it and then quite enjoyed it. Now to get my essays typed up, that OU deadline is looming!

I can add my 20 miles from the weekend and 10 km from last week on

Well done Alex!
3.5 miles yesterday. Found them really hard cos I'm under the weather. Again.

Alex3101 Tue 21-May-19 07:54:55

An inspirational read for the morning.

IRun4Me Tue 21-May-19 07:28:32

Hello everyone. Welcome to all new folks. Well done to everyone on all the achievements - amazing and inspiring. Hope all those injured and struggling are able to get back out there soon.
My running has definitely fallen off recently. I had a lot happening mentally/emotionally and whilst in the thick of it I kept I the running but now I feel absolutely physically and mentally exhausted. I have however been doing core work, lots of dog walks and gardening.
I am going to get back out there today. I WILL GO FOR A RUN!! grin

Well done racers, brilliant results all around!

Went for a quick 5 mile run. Never in a million years I would have said that sentence!

Well done Alex3101 that’s a brilliant achievement especially after injury.

Alex3101 Sun 19-May-19 21:48:03

Hey all,
Bit of a hiatus for me. Since my 2 Trail Half day the beginning of the year I've had an Achilles injury which has limited my running as well as what seems like a constant stream of illnesses.
But I've got races entered so on Friday I loaded the family into the car and headed to the Peak District. We camped for the weekend and I started a 20 mile race with low expectations as I hadn't been over 10 miles for months. It was a brilliant event that was really well organised and I ran my 2nd fastest 20 miles. With 780 metres of climbing it was tough but the views were tremendous.
So roll on mid June for a Trail marathon in Snowdonia.

Yay for kedgeree. Quite hungry now reading your name grin

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 19-May-19 21:27:39

Well done Kedgeree!

Kedgeree Sun 19-May-19 20:16:14

Fab day for me too! First time over the half marathon distance today (training, not a race) and I hit my target time for my race in July. Feeling very chuffed!

Whoopstheregomyinsides Sun 19-May-19 20:08:06

I’m doing a 10km in July. I’d like to be around an hour but am not getting any younger. I was so chuffed today to not stop.
Well done all of us

OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 19-May-19 17:32:46

A fab day all round today for people by the sound of it! Well done Eyewhisker, Tri and Whoops! smile

I'm trying to decide my next race, I like 10k as a distance.

emummy Sun 19-May-19 17:19:59

WEll done Whoops and Tri, fantastic achievements both of you

TriSkiRun99 Sun 19-May-19 16:34:54

Well done whoops brill time - I always say never again after a tough event then find myself 2-3hrs later booking another one 😂

Whoopstheregomyinsides Sun 19-May-19 16:14:42

Hats off. Tri sounds so hard. The transitions would be me downfall!
Just home from my half. Ran without stopping. 2 hours 28. 8 minutes faster than last year so I’m thrilled with that. Woo hoo!!
Now not to rest for 6 months like last time I did it...actually enjoyed it today grin

Eyewhisker Sun 19-May-19 14:56:09

Well done triski - that’s amazing. Don’t know how you can do 5k after such a long bike ride!

TriSkiRun99 Sun 19-May-19 14:20:10

My first full Sprint Tri done today smile the run part was 5k straight after a hilly 21k bike and my legs were mush it’s a horrid feeling but I kept plodding on and run through the ugh feeling.
joebrown hope you find some relief I’ve suffered bouts of horrid nerve disc related back pain the longest was 18mths and it really made me feel miserable. I stretch a lot and swim/cycle to cross train but I do love the running buzz. Hope you find a balance that works for you.


emummy Sun 19-May-19 11:29:01

Woo-hoo! Well done Eyewhisker, great running. So glad your knee behaved.
Long run this morning after waving dd2 off on a school trip. Nice cool cloudy day, really enjoyed it.


Eyewhisker Sun 19-May-19 11:27:09

Yes! I did it! 1:08 - so so proud and knee held up. Such a great atmosphere - really glad I pushed myself.


OhYouBadBadKitten Sun 19-May-19 09:07:55

Eyewhisker I hope you've been able to say yes to the race. Sometimes adrenaline can make pain niggles totally vanish during races.

Eyewhisker Sun 19-May-19 07:38:09

Wow - you ladies are inspiring! Coming on here for advice and support. I’ve a C5k graduate and have been running regularly since Xmas, usually 5k a time. My first ever official 10k today is this morning and I did the distance last Sunday for the first time. Doing it was OK but my knee has been complaining since - had to ice it and rest.

Do you think I could give the race a go this morning? I would be fine with 5k but feel so intimidated at 10 and don’t want to drop out.
