W8R1 Glad to be alive and not running 13.1 miles!

Changing my running days this week due to the extra run I'll be doing on Saturday. Today in my home town of Carlisle there is a 1/2 marathon taking place (Great Cumbrian Run) it starts at 10am, so I thought I'd better get my wee section of it done before the professionals come alone. I tried to mix my pace up a bit using lamposts as markers and going faster between selected ones. I think it went ok. I also ran faster for the last 1-2 minutes pre-empting Sarah but lol she never said it today! Glad its done, again I enjoyed it once I got out of the door. Good luck everyone, whatever week you are on.

Well done!! I did this run yesterday and waited to be told for the run faster minute at the end too but it never happened either! So I just did it-I like those wee bursts even when you don’t think you can do them!

Haha. Been there and done two. Never again. I think 5k is just a nice distance for an ole gal.

I dunno yet... not been there, but training for anything above 5k is time consuming, much as I love running I can’t see me putting myself through more than one marathon, so maybe a half on the way up and one on the way back down!
