Urgh - feel awful now....rest day!
Emergency visit to the physio this morning after something went wrong last Friday on the treadmill. Strained hamstring, no running aloud again, back next week for a checkup.
Seriously starting to get a bit annoyed now, I'd only managed 3 outside runs, longest being 8.5 miles.
Oh not aloud to cycle until Friday, then it must be gentle and stopped immediately if it aggravates my leg.
Cold, wet, cold, peaty, cold, windy
Did I mention cold?
Whilst waiting for the start, I was shivering, to the point of uncontrollability, I could only stop by leaning against the quarry side!
A slow start. a slow first mile, thus I finished well down, slowest ever.....
The provisionals state 330 finishers
1st = 43:52
Me = 221st @ 1.14:36

Eighth day of a strapped thigh. No running for me.
Missed my Saturday run so only 29.7km this week
Quick update from me.
9 1/2 muddy off road miles on Sunday, mostly in rain and drizzle. Legs hurt but the mud was fun
Late getting home from work (bl00dy traffic) so just 4 miles this evening, cold but kept myself warm by upping the pace to (a fast for me) 7:24 min/mi.
0C last night, chest and neck frozen when I got home.
13.1km at 5:47/km
Decided to start pausing strava when the group stands about waiting for people to catch up so I get a clearer view of the actual run pace.
I look better than I felt, on the last steep/wet/long/muddy hill
You forgot your race number, and your all black ninja outfit doesn't work in daylight.
Ahh, you were distracted by the girls
I had number '73'
Not my photo, but it features me, helping the 2 girls behind me, at Ponden Clough stream cross, at last Sundays 'Stanbury Splash'
On my crossing;
Appear to have picked up my speed a bit recently, or maybe i'm just running faster to keep warm.
Thursday I put in a 6 mile off road run at 7:54/mi
Today was a 6 mile road run at 7:35/mi
70 miles total for the year so far
I am feeling rather pleased with myself as I managed to run my first 10k on Sunday morning. It was about -6c where I live, so had decided it was too cold to cycle, went out for a run with a friend instead. I was cheered off by Mrs O who said that respectfully she didn't think I was capable to running 10k, nothing like a bit of motivation. Overall no drama's and managed to complete it in 08:30min miles.
Now looking forward to next week when if it is still cold, I'll probably run again.
Shortish run planned tonight, an easy pace 55 mins in a positively balmy 3ºC. Long sleeves and tights at the ready this time.
Long sleeve and tights??? Man up, man
I'll be going out tonight for an easy 6k (has to be in the evening as it's 45% main road so fumes are an issue during the day), so depending upon how brave I'm feeling I'll do it in shorts, running shirt and gloves. Famous last words lol. We'll see.
