Re: The athletics/running thread

You motivated me Bruce. Now the kids are back at school this week I’ve no good excuse either so dusted off my running shorts that have been languishing in a drawer for the last month, grabbed my trainers and the dog and set off for a very slow, unfit, humid few miles. Hated every minute of it! Befo...

Re: The athletics/running thread

I'm very happy everyone is keeping up the exercise (or starting again in GG's case). I've trained through the summer but motivation has suffered due to the whole race season cancelling.

Re: The athletics/running thread

Plodded round 4 miles tonight. Decided if I’m going to be slow then I’ll try and up the mileage slowly instead. Try ultra running. Them buggers walk most of it! Or a triathlon where I can just cheat and get on my bike when I get knackered? Yeah......that's not how triathlons work though. Sorry It's...

Re: The athletics/running thread

Yeah it's ridiculous. Something pinged in my leg last time it was this hot about 4 weeks ago and still isn't fixed. Going stir crazy again.

I did it. Got out. Hated every minute of it and it was slow and short. Bit depressed now. Don’t want to go again!
Why depressed? It's not the first time you've been considered slow and short, surely? :wink:

A hot & humid 5k last night. Hard work, but definitely getting easier.

Rain forecast for the next couple of days. Hmmm! ☔️

Re: The athletics/running thread

I'm quite demotivated with my exercise at the minute. Trained all winter for an epic Summer of tri races and marathons. At the moment my first race, that isn't postponed or cancelled, is Swim Serpentine in September...……… Just ticking over. Well done Bruce on your 60km and You LE on your 46 consecut...

That'd be me then :cry: :P :mrgreen: I can't remember what I had for dinner last night, let alone who I've met from here. Apologies for missing some of you out. GtE, Bruce, Verbs or whatever he's called these days. DSB, Bish, Boris, Tango and Marshall42? Yes..... yes it would. :D Sorry mate. X
