ho hum

its all very dispiriting

I am no quicker, no fitter and no thinner than I was a year ago

so I entered Robin Hood hoping to do a better time than last year

but my training runs are no quicker than they were a year ago

I haven't run more than 8 miles since FLM

and the race is next Sunday!

I have this nasty feeling I am going to hate it

all the other forumites will be long gone from the pub by the time I finish ............................................

TP and I will start together but not sure whether we will stick together

she has not run further than last wweeks 8 miles EVER

and her shoes are not right, blisters last week and today's run was shorter than planned cos she was getting rubbing

BUT I had a good run with TP today - slow, but see above

distance 1.00 1.00 1.00 1.00 1.00 0.01 5.01
time 13:33 13:15 13:42 14:33 13:06 14:48 1:08:24
AHR 131 146 148 141 146 149 142

we did run a mile walk a minute and I stopped to stretch my calves in each of the minutes - so these times include that stretching time

TP did some good stretching with me afterwards - especially of my hamstrings and hip flexors

Awww Beanzie,

You've certainly got bags of mental capacity to do it.

I wish I could be there to pop up around the route to give you jelly babies, sports drinks and verbal abuse.

I'll be there in spirit.
