He ran She didn't!

Well, I duly got out there in the freezing cold after work to clock up a three mile recovery run - 9 min pace - but likkel dawter cried off saying she was too tired!  Youngsters today! Hah...at her age i was running 30 miles in the morning, playi...

Me legs dunnarf ake-loike

I'm determined to go out for a recovery run this evening, but my legs really ache today - whereas they were fine yesterday! Go figure. Numerous passing motorists will no doubt view my gait, and then stop to offer me a lift back to the old people'...

Reading Half Marathon

Well, I enjoyed my day out at Reading. The weather was great, the race organisation very efficient,  and the company of so many realbuzzers simply splendid! I thought the course was really good, albeit a little narrow, and hence crowded at times,...

Hungover

Why do I drink Whisky? I am such a dumbass sometimes. I went to the offie to get 'er indoors a bottle of wine.. and there was temptation before me... an array of amber nectar. So I purchased a bottle. Then I drank some, and then some more, and, w...

SIX DAYS!

..without running. OMG it's a long time since that happened. Oh well, at least I did some serious waliking at the week-end, in Cornwall. I couldn't possibly let myself go a whole week without a run, so I got myself out there this afte...

Back home... :-(

Well that was a nice break, but it's utterly depressing to come home so soon, and to have missed my long run today as well.. bummer! Oh well, tmoz is another week - will try harder Miss! Exeter (where I was born... there i...
We're off down to visit my Uni attending daughter in Exeter today, Waggamamas for dinner, staying the night and then heading off to west Cornwall for a well earned break in the morning. Eat, Drink, Walk, Eat, Walk, and other indoor activities tha...

Sunny Half Marathon

What a lovely Spring day! It was sunshine all the way round the Wokingham Half Marathon today, which was through rural lanes and villages, which added to my sense of enjoyment. It were a bit crowded though, all the way round too and n...

Bereft and sad

Am I weird? (don't bother commenting... there's not enough server space) This is my third day without running and I feel, well... bereft! Mrs Pabs is out there running this morning and I'm grumpy cos I can't go myself - just because my programme ...

Long Run

Well, long for me anyhow! 12 miles in 1h45m - so that's 26 miles for the week and I'm bang on training target for my first race of the season next Sunday at Wokingham 1/2 marathon. It was a nice run today - sunny but cool, crisp reall...

Just a quickie... nudge, nudg...

A lovely morning today, so in the car I got with work-bound Mrs Pabs and college-bound daughter No.3 and got deposited in Farnborough. A sunny 9.14 miles at 8m29s pace later and I'm feeling satisfied, and duly knackered. I saw several...

Recovery running

I didn't intend running before midweek, but I'm feeling enthused at the mo so I popped out before dinner last night for a quick 3.4 miles. Also, I'd looked at my schedule earlier and realised that if I could squeeze in an extra 3 unscheduled mile...

Getting there... slowly but s...

11 miles in 8m50s pace today means I'm bang on my training schedule once again - I'm getting good at keeping to what I've planned! A 12 mile long run is in my spreadsheet for next week-end, and then the week after is the Wokingham 1/2 Marathon - ...

Bleedin' Nipples

OWWW..CH. I forgot to 'lube-up' this morning before going out for a 9 mile run along the Basingstoke Canal and over the local Army Ranges. It wasn't until I was in the shower (try not to visualise.. you'll retch...) that I felt the agony...

OMG - that was hard work

Phew. I'm cream crackered. I ran 10 miles tday, but it felt really tough - twice as tough as my 9 miles last week-end. Dunno why, but I think I had too much sleep on Saturday night/Sunday morning and my body was thinking it was still in bed! ...

Wet Wet Wet

Splish splosh slpash went my sodden trainers as I struggled through my last mile of 6 in thunder 'n lightning and torrential rain - good fun though! I could smell the ozone from the lightning - it was pretty close - and was glad I wasn't on my backswin...

Told you...

She didn't come out for a run, 'er indoors I mean. Busy she said. Doing what, I have no idea... but then again, I have no idea about womankind in general anyway, apparently ! I went for a 2 mile recovery run and thoroughly enjoyed it....

Pleased with that...

Well, I watched the weather forecast last night and the prospect of it peeing down again tomorrow led me to bring my long run forward to today. I'm glad I did. 9 miles in 1h15m, that's 8:20/mile pace, which is the best I've done for a long time o...

Che Guevera rules! *updated*

I had an enjoyable evening last night - 6 miles running in 52 mins, a lovely diet-dinner of sardines on toast, then settled down to watch a spanish language film (I need subtitles! er indoors doesn't) 'Motorcycle Diaries' - the story of Che Gueva...

Mission accomplished

Another satisfying week - running wise anyway. 23.5 miles total (Avg 8m50s) with a long run of 8 miles in 72mins. I'm right on track to increase my weekly long run by a mile per week to reach 12 miles the week before my first half marathon of the...

Cold Running

I am feeling pleased with myself this week. Woohoo! Despite a really heavy head cold I've still managed to get out and run 12.5 miles this week so far. My logic is simple - I feel miserable enough already, without feeling even more so if I were t...

Green 3.5 Miles

I seemed to have developed a streaming head cold and left a 3.5 mile mucous trail along our local roads this evening! Have I grossed you out? Good! I have to admit It was only the fear of being accused of 'man flu'  by certain female ...

Haslemere Boxing Day Run

Well, that was VERY hilly, and VERY muddy - but FUN! Mrs Pabs managed to run despite feeling a bit the worse for Xmas wear - and the small matter of not having run since July! We met up with Sir Nick and Phil K, as well as...

Xmas Day in West End

Mr Pabs and myself took my three daughters out for a lovely Vietnamese meal last night - what  a FEAST! Then the girls all headed off into town to see their friends, and we did a 4 mile pubcrawl home - well, two pubs anyway! I got a b...
