Girlie club run with cake!

Just back from a nice little 5 mile run with the ladies from the club.  Meeting in town and finishing at the coffee shop for cake and milkshakes!  Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm!  Found it really easy.  Too easy today almost.  Felt like I could go much further.  It really does make a big difference running with others.  Am looking forward to trying about 8-9 tomorrow morning back in Norfolk...

One week in...

...and feeling fitter!  :)
I ran the Swineshead 5 mile race last Sunday on a whim and got a new PB of 48m 16s which I was very happy with!  And my first medal since I have been with W&DAC.
We ran just over 6 miles to Gt Doddington last night with run club and I no longer seem to be struggling to manage long distances or worry over my breathing.  My main issue at the moment seems to be speed.  I am capable of lasting the distance, but I just don't get there very quickly!
The big news of the week is that I have just entered the Bedford half marathon on 11th December.  13 weeks away!  Hopefully time to train!  I've dragged the others along with me...we shall see how we get on over the coming months, but that definitely ticks off the 'complete at least a 10 mile run' point from the before-the-wedding checklist!

New target...

OK, so I need a new milestone.  The new milestone is...Marie and Dave's wedding on 30th December.

Before this date I would like to have run a 10mile or higher race, be 10.5 stone or less and in a size 10 dress.

I intend on running at least 5 miles three times a week and one longer run 10-11 miles at the weekend.  Cutting back on snacking and eating more fruit and veg.

Breakfast is another big downfall...I eat to put off going to work.  No more eating before leaving for work.  I will have something when I arrive at school.
