Coming of age

I neglected to mention that, as of Sunday, I am now officially a Vet runner. Yep, I'm 35. Not quite sure how that snuck up on me.

When Sonic asked me what I wanted for my Birthday and I said I would like a baby girl, I knew I would get a good present. Result!

Now I just need to work out how to use it. Taking out the box would be a step in the right direction.

I'm glad to report, that everything seems to be back on track. I had a cracking tempo run on Tuesday, rep session Wednesday and 2 x 2m intervals at the club last night last night. I know, it's all back-to-back hard sessions, but I didn't plan it that way. After three hard sessions, I'm having a couple days easy before a WHW run on Sunday with JK and the Gibbering Midget.

Tuesday tempo: 2mile warm-up, 5m tempo (7.34, 7.22, 7.44, 7.18)
Wednesday: 8 x 500m reps
Thursday: 2m warm-up, 2m tempo (7.16, 7.25), jog recovery 2m tempo (7.16, 7.07), 2m recovery

Good to hear you are still in great shape after that *** event which must not be mentioned. Maybe all you need is a change of diet?

Btw, great gift! That will give you a good excuse to run the WHW in under 20hrs ;-)
I have got one too but as we know I only run to the Kingshouse usually. That's doable in 20hrs.

Do you have a Garmin Connect account yet?

Happy birthday but 35 is far too young to be a VET!

Looking forward to the run on Sunday.

So glad you're feeling better!

Happy Birthday!!!!

Great minds think alike - i've asked for a Garmin for my b'day too (on Tuesday,). I know it's of no use at the mo' - I think I might cry if I saw my pace flashing up at me in big bold numbers - but not long now.

Which one did you get? Does it fit on your wrist or will you need to get some dumbell training in before using it on Sunday? Still persuing the options at the mo as I have a few months before I can decent use out of it so any feedback would be gratefully received.

Have a great run at the weekend. How you feeling about London?

A very happy birthday when it comes Debs, trust JK and Ms Law will be buying lunch on the Way to celebrate(or alternatively maybe they could carry your backpack?)Oh and welcome to the Vets club!
Have a good one.

Thanks y'all. My birthday was last Sunday otherwise I would (at least) make JK carry my gear :-)

Belated birthday wishes. If only I'd have known I could have shared my mini eggs on Sunday (I was carrying 3 tubes!!)
