    @jillymp – I would not say it is Mega (as such), it’s something that I have been toying with for over a couple of years but never been able to resolve all the complex logistics. I believe that I may have come up with a solution. Will know more over the Weekend. Will try not to keep you guys in suspense for too long!

    @dee27, it is something I have been trying to sort for over 18 months but never been able to solve some of the problems. The light bulb actually resolved the issues unexpectedly. The balls are now in motion… πŸ™‚

    @sharnie1 – maybe we can reveal together? πŸ™‚ I made a start on mine yesterday and already got some interest so may not be long!

    ha ha not quite. Just trying to organise something but will keep under wraps until I know I can / cannot achieve it. (Here’s hoping I can)

    @vicky-pixi – I struggled last year with motivation, I even used “it looks like it is going to rain” and the worse one was “Leaves will be slippery!”.
    I found that putting a race in my diary helped, but it has to be one that you have to work at. I selected a HM. That still didn’t motivate me, the furthest I ran before the event was 10K but did…[Read more]

      I started off quite well this afternoon but then seemed to zone out, not thinking of how I was running or how I was feeling during the run, I just chilled out and hit a moment of clarity, a huge light bulb 💡 moment… Watch this space for more details.

    • Ooh, exciting! Bionic legs?

      (Nice run btw)

    • oooh – sounds intrigueing and like you have an adventure lined up πŸ™‚

    • Can’t wait to find out what you’re up to πŸ™‚

    • Intriguing! Funny how ideas come to you when you’re least expecting them to!

    • @Richard, lol, my husband often resolves problems in his sleep. He’s a physio but in his spare time he writes computer programmes. Sometimes he’ll get stuck on a bit of computer coding and the answer will come to him in his sleep, weird!! He’s lucky that he still remembers it in the morning I think!

    • Ok, it’s something mega?!
      Don’t keep us too long in suspense!

    • Well that does sound interesting! Keep us posted!

    @jillymp I hope you enjoyed your holiday?
    Are you training for Chester Marathon?
    I am well (ish), my bike is fixed and running well, I am motivated, extended my bike target from 2,000 to 3,500 and currently on target to hit 1,000 miles running for this year.

      Same distance as yesterday, Just taking it easy and enjoying the outdoors at the moment. No particular time wanted, just run based on how my legs feel (about 50 seconds quicker than yesterday’s time) – Feeling Positive and Motivated, long may it last!

    • Sounding very positive and enjoyable too Richard!
      Catching up on here, and hope all is well with you now?

    • I am training for Chester, but all a bit dithery atm for some reason! Holidays have not helped.
      Wow to those bike miles, huge target to achieve! I’m hoping for a 1000 mile running target. A couple of years ago, I achieved it by August, then my feet “fell off”!

    • Can i have some of that motivation please Richard!!! Legs sound like there enjoying taking it easy πŸ™‚

    • Love the sound of this run and you really can’t beat positivity and being motivated. Fab outing Richard. 👍

    • Superb run

    • Great to see how much you’re enjoying your miles at the moment – looking in good shape too Richard πŸ™‚

    • All sounding good, well done Richard!

    @paulc – I am surprised you are not going for it then if you live close to Yarrow Valley Park. I was Marshaling there earlier in the year. I love a good technical course.

    Yarrow River Splash on Sunday – Can’t wait… I just love the Technicality of the course

    Hardest thing is to keep going when you feel rubbish – the most important thing is to keep going. πŸ™‚

      Nice and Easy run today, just loving the running and Biking at the minute. (Yeah!!! Bike is fixed and feels like brand new) I am running in Yarrow Splash on Sunday (lovely trail 10K with 2 River Crossings) – just love the route.

    • Great looking easy miles Richard.
      Good luck in the race Sunday, Yarrow Valley Park is a couple of miles from me, I occasionally run round that way.

    • All sounding positive. Like the sound of the trail run and good news on the bike!

    • Great news on the bike Richard – and you’re clocking up some fab bike miles – sounds a nice event for the weekend 👍

      Just a nice chilled out run at lunch after pushing my bike for over 8 miles to get to work! Whole back of bike will be rebuilt over the weekend to prevent any further issues like this. Let the you tube marathon begin!!!

    • Well done Richard, good miles.
      I know they get called push bikes, but isn’t that taking things a bit far? Or is it a new sport? πŸ˜‰

      A nice and easy RR. Just short of 20 miles covered in 3 days so feeling quite good.
      The first mile was difficult, could not get cumfortable so decided to just go out for 5K, but everything started to fall in to place by about 1.5 miles so carried on.

    • Good miles over the last few days Richard – often the way that just after you’ve decided to shorten things the legs decide to join the party πŸ™‚

    Thank you all – It is good to see how far I have come, just makes me push on further. πŸ™‚

      A nice and easy run today, legs felt good. Was pleasantly surprised at how good they feel based on yesterdays run and this mornings ride. πŸ™‚

      Nice easy run out in full kit as not sure what the weather was going to do, not wanting to push it too hard and luckily I never got caught in the rain. I was sure that I did that route before, but looking in history this was my long bike ride. So I am now (easily) running my long bike rides from 4 years ago. I was surprised πŸ™‚

    • Well done Richard, great miles banked πŸ™‚

    • Cracking effort with full kit – always good to the practice in with it all – well done πŸ™‚ Great to look back and see the improvements your making

    • So nice to be able to look back and see how far you’ve come? Lovely miles Richard πŸ™‚

    • Thank you all – It is good to see how far I have come, just makes me push on further. πŸ™‚

  • Richard commented on the run 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    thank you @joyful. Just thought I would give my legs a little bit of rest.

  • Richard commented on the run 2 weeks, 3 days ago

    Thanks @sharnie1 – I am trying to get between 180 – 200 miles a week but suffered with some issues here and there (flats, cables etc.) can’t complain as hit over 2,650 miles (4,265KM) so far this year. Good news on breaking your distance record with RAS, but rotten luck for the injury. I read your race report! Wow!!!! That’s all I can say… you…[Read more]
