TFF Parkrun Fiends...............

Cardiff Half Marathon yesterday. Not sure if I enjoyed it at the time but at least I finished it! First running event I've done for 20 years and didn't train properly for it either which was a bit silly. Good atmosphere.

2hrs 22mins. The lungs could do more but the knees and legs couldnt!

Well done you fool.
One of my employees ran at Cardiff for some reason. Trained by me making him work hard.

Have you done it? It was very busy yesterday. Good experience, I'd recommend it because the crowds make it a good atmosphere
No, only started running in december, the plan is to do the Ras Dewi Sant 1/2 next year, my sister is on about doing a 1/2 in Llanelli in the spring as well. There is a 10k trail run in Stackpole on sunday, if I'm not picking spuds I might enter.

I'm down for the half in Llanelli - see you there!

Also I have an idle plan over the winter to run the whole of the coast path in about 15-20 mile segments (will be a walk/run not just run)

Kudos for that!!
Legs & knees are fine, its the breathing bit that gets me. One of the old boys (must be 70+) who does our parkrun said "Concentrate on breathing in....the breathing out just happens!".

Have a read of this for a little inspiration.


One of the team interviewed in a YouTube clip I saw said that he needed to run at 2:50/km, roughly 21km/hr. At that pace he would complete a parkrun in just over 14 minutes, but he needs to maintain that for two hours...
 
Mr did the cardiff half twice didnt really enjoy it think the concrete and flat running bored him he prefers XC.

We including the kids been doing laps of the field this week. He's flying but those dam hills I have to walk. The kids are good though.

My issue is my wired evenings total inability to sleep last night. Not great for me as I need a lot of sleep plus the anxiety creeps in if fatigued.

Well, I`m now doing "mid week training". :nailbiting:

In week 3 of Couch 2 5k supporting Mrs M on her journey. So it was 2 walk/run circuits of 3/4 mile yesterday after work, then 3 miles of intervals home. :yuck: Mrs M wasn`t there because of some diary mismanagement.

I now need to go out again tonight with her and do 1.5 miles of walk/run stuff to help her along.

Then its a "rest day" ... and PR Saturday.
