  1. Yeah I'll do that too, it's going to be tough to convince myself to get out for a 20 miler on Saturday. Hopefully a fixed date is enough to motivate me!
  2. Richmond marathon next month has been postponed and I can't do the new date so it's as good as cancelled for me 😞 It's going to be pretty hard to keep my motivation to get out and running in the dark cold evenings now, I might still just run a marathon on that date and see if I do any better than when I had to do a virtual marathon last year. February is still feeling pretty bleak!

    I have this coming tomorrow and can't wait! At home kits seems to be the more popular in lockdown 3 from what I'm seeing on social media. I'm guessing it's because people have more time to cook. https://store.dishoom.com/vegan-sausage-naan-roll-kit
  4. Do you use a watch or a chest strap? I might start taking notice of my HR but don't know if my Garmin is reliable.
  5. I listened to the new Bicep album on my run last night. I don't love it as much as the self titled album but it's 49 instrumental minutes which is perfect for running for me so I would recommend.
  6. I have the airpods with the charging case and my husband has the ones where you have to plug in the case to charge. His case no longer charges and sometimes the left headphone of mine doesn't charge so I'd say they are temperamental. They do feel comfortable in ear though and have never fallen out. I'm not sure if they are officially waterproof but I've worn them in pretty bad weather conditions... might be why they are a little dodgy! I have a friend who swears by the Aftershockz headphones which don't actually go in ear.
  7. Garmin can link with Spotify so you can download playlists. I'm still just getting along with my training plan, I have a brutal 30km in the diary for Saturday so I'm just going to take my weekday runs easy to hopefully keep the legs fresh! It's going to be a struggle but the feeling afterwards when I'm vegging on the sofa for the rest of the day will be so worth it!
  8. Definitely! Let me know if you find any good nutrition/ hydration tips. I actually don't mind gels (especially the Gu ones) but will probably want to start experimenting with actual food whilst running... I've heard malt loaf is good.
  9. Nice! That does look pretty tough, I never know if loops and knowing what's coming would be a good thing or not mentally? I had a look at a training plan and apart from the long runs at the weekend the weekday mileage actually looks easier than my current marathon training which is a nice surprise
  10. I've signed up to Race to The King - a double marathon on 19th June. I wasn't going to do it if Glasto was on this year because I didn't want achy legs to hinder my experience, but as it turns out this year is the year to dip my toe in the ultra pond after all. I'll be relying on the endorphins/ dopamine to keep my spirits up over the net few months that's for sure!
  11. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't there a theory that vaccinating the vulnerable population first could actually cause the virus to be able spread amongst less vulnerable people and mutate further into stronger strains? If the above is right I can't see restrictions being lifted until everyone is vaccinated so we're looking at at least autumn for some normality?
  12. 0% - I feel like it's time for me to start coming to terms with this summer being not to dissimilar from last 😩
  13. Another vote for Garmin for a running watch. My husband has the forerunner245 and I have the Vivoactive 3, which was a bit cheaper and the stats have helped so much with training. Be warned though, your usual Strava routes will likely come out as slightly shorter when you start logging on your watch and therefore you will be slightly slower than you thought you were!
