10 miles with Forest Gump! 🀣

Hi everyone, lovely weather out today down here, good call to cancel my run yesterday, with all the rain. 🌞

Well, today had an idea to do a longer run, maybe 12/14k, felt quite good, early on, ran through another village, to avoid the very muddy bit of canal, had seen videos on f/book of flooded tow paths yesterday, then joined canal further up, by which point the sun was out, and that's when Forest Gump joined us, my daughter was with me too, something went wrong with NRC today, was reading 4k ahead of strava, and saying pace was 6.45/km, which wasnt right, my fastest ever 1k, is 7.15 i think! Anyway, on we went, got to the 2 hour running, then 15k, we were going by my daughters fitbit now, which tallys with strava, 16k, wasnt sure exactly what 10 miles was, so went on a bit, just in case! 🀣

So time for a nice warm soak in bath, hope everyone else is having a good day, and still thinking about you all, having to isolate!

68.4 km towards my total. πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Thanks, was just one of those runs, when everything just feels good, just have to make the most of them! ☺Hope your feeling ok, after being back at work?

I am feeling absolutely exhausted back at work this week- haven’t ran at all- I’m going to try and do one tomorrow- I’ll be taking a nice easy short one

Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Bambi2020

After your covid, i think your doing great, with work, cant be easy, it's bad enough, just transporting them all in to school!! 🀣Hope the weathers ok for your run. 🌞

I feel so lazy but I know I have to be sensible too. It’s freezing fog here now so it might have to be a lunchtime run when the frost has gone 🀞🏼

Thanks, probably doing it all wrong, i know, but watching the news atm, just think, why not, but sticking to one long run a week.

Brilliant! Huge well done. Especially when you have a idea to do a longer run and it turns out to be 10 miles! That’s just what I do πŸ˜‚. πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

Thanks, i know, i was thinking about your comment, saying 12k was your jump figure to 10 miles 🀣 tried out the tights today too, felt ok, was worried they might keep slipping down 🀣 eventualy forgot i had them on. We did good, doing our runs today 🌞 rather than yesterday, in the 🌧

Jools2020
Jools2020Graduate10 in reply to Peter44

You know when the time is right to push on. If you listen to your body and take it steady, then you know. I think you were a bit faster than me 😊.

Yes, we made the right decision about the weather!

Glad to hear you are a tights convert now! πŸ˜‰

Peter44
Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Jools2020

Was getting very confusing with the split times, blimey, nrc says i did a 4.29 min kilometer, which didnt happen! πŸ₯΅ and it said i'd run 20km at the end, which also didnt happen πŸ₯΅ not sure why πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈOnly really needed the tights, for warm up walk, but was good to get used to them, and didnt have to keep pulling them up! 🀣

Jools2020
Jools2020Graduate10 in reply to Peter44

I’ve had a few inaccuracies with NRC. 4:29? That would be good! I think I’ve manage 5:40, but it was only for 1 minute on an interval run! No way could I maintain it. One of my Strava contacts is a Basque runner who likes to run up mountains for fun. His pace on the flat is around 3:30.

Good that the tights fit properly, nothing worse than keeping having to hitch up your tights ! 😊

Peter44
Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Jools2020

I wont be doing 5:40 any time soon!!! πŸ₯΅πŸ€£

Jools2020
Jools2020Graduate10 in reply to Peter44

Don’t rule it out!!I was shocked! Warm up walk. Sprint for 60 seconds, slow jog for 90 seconds. 8 repeats. 7 of my sprints were 5 something. Others had similar results.

Jools2020
Jools2020Graduate10 in reply to Jools2020

I set it up as a workout on the Garmin app and sent it to my watch.

Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Jools2020

Ummm πŸ€” well maybe one day i might try, i've also got to add some hills, might do it on sunday.

Brilliant effort, is that your first 10miles? If so well done to you and your daughter, pop over to the marathon forum for your 10miles badge. 68.4km is great progress at only 1/2 way through January, fantastic. Happy running πŸ€—

Thanks, didnt want to fall behind! 🀣I was reading your comments, about lack of weight loss, i'm pretty much the same, lost about a stone, 18 months ago, when i started going to gym, and swimming, walked, every day, during 1st lockdown, started c25k, in sept, but no more real weight loss, but the wobbly bits, dont wobble, quite as much now! 🀣

Woah 😧 😧 10 miles!!! Congratulations.. amazing distance and commitment to get there. And in the face of dodgy tech playing up too! I mean, I know we always say it but can you remember when we all had 30mins running ahead of us and we were slightly quaking?! Now you’re out over 2hrs πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼 As Alan Partridge would say, β€œyou mentalist” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But just brilliant. Hope you enjoyed your long soak in the bath!

Peter44
Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Runforurlife

I'm just the same, always think about early weeks in c25k, w5r3, and the 30 min runs πŸ₯΅ and now we're here, it's mad, running for 2 hours 🀣 i dont always mention it, boring same thing, all the time etc, but so glad to have started c25k, when i did!Dont tell anyone, but i had a look over at the marathon forum!!! 🀣

Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Catho78

Thanks, hope the weathers better tomorrow for your run, got snow here today πŸ₯Ά i think once we get over the 10km barrier, stretching it further, isnt too bad really, but i'm still pretty slow! 🀣

Congratulations on running your first 10 miles, well done, now you are with "the big boys and girls "on the Marathon forum" if a runner runs 10 miles, half or full marathon that runner is now a member of that forum.

Peter44
Peter44Graduate10 in reply to AlMorr

Thanks Al, i did have a peek over there! 😁

Wow over 2hrs of running!!! Amazing! ⭐️ Well done to your daughter too! πŸ‘πŸ»You must be on cloud nine! πŸ˜€

Peter44Graduate10 in reply to Indielass00

Thanks, yep, was pretty chuffed, bit achy today, but not too bad, hope your feeling ok, having small children, and being ill, cant be easy, too long ago for me to remember! 🀣

Indielass00
Indielass00 in reply to Peter44

🀣 I’m sure it wasn’t that long ago! Feeling good thanks! I think that’s why my recovery was longer because I had to keep going with the two kids and of course the homeschooling! It is hard. But when they get older they can look after meπŸ˜‚

Peter44Graduate10 in reply to 9weeks2Run

Thanks, went a bit further than planned, and probably the wrong way to do it, risking injuries etc, but when it feels good, i just think, why not!Hope your feeling ok, probably itching to get out again?

10 miles..! I doff my cap to you sir 🎩✨

I just said to Jericho this morning, it’s like he was built for this running lark. It looks like the same applies to you too 🀩

Despite the NRC mishap, sounds like you had a satisfying run β˜€οΈ Keep it up! That goal is edging closer! πŸƒβ€β™‚οΈβœ¨
