Thanks to Sarah from Winchester for joining me this morning on a very pleasant Beside the Seaside 9k run. Sarah, who especially likes cross country running, belongs to clubs in her hometown and in London where she currently lives and works. She enjoys training for shorter distances but has done a fair few 10ks and ran the 9k route this morning really comfortably. A lovely run in lovely company. Well done, Sarah!
Thanks to Diamond Girl, Mads, for accompanying me on some fabulous runs over the last week or so. Today, we ran our On Cloud Nine 14k, an undulating route along country lanes and mountain track to Sant Martí peak where we saw all the way to Menorca this morning. Mads has done brilliantly and gained fitness in the short time she's been here by getting up and getting out there! Well done, Mads! It's not 'Goodbye', it's 'See you on the bench'!
I enjoyed a great run with beautiful views accompanied by Madeleine today. We did our Another Day in Paradise 13k route along quiet country lanes, stunning mountainside and rugged coast. The fields and mountains looked beautiful after our recent rain - all lush and dotted with colourful flowers, and the sea, despite a slightly overcast sky, was still sparkling. A lovely morning and 13k done! Well done, Mads!
Thanks to Carol, a runner and cyclist from the West Midlands, for being as crazy as me and going out for a wet and wild coastal run this morning. After an epic cycle ride to Sa Calobra yesterday, Carol came out on our Tombs and Dunes 9k with me despite 'dead legs' and did brilliantly. There was a lot of 'woohoo-ing' going on as the waves crashed into the rocks and the sea came right up to the sandy paths we were running along but it was all great and we survived the sinking sand! Well done, Carol! Breakfast and spa now. You deserve it!
Thanks to Amanda for joining me on this morning's run. We changed the planned route to the Another Day in Paradise 13k, so did a few more kms than anticipated, but it was great with beautiful views and lovely company all the way. Sporty Amanda from Wiltshire especially loves the half marathon distance and is psyching herself up to do a full marathon in the near future. Good luck, Amanda! You'll be great!
We had a great Another Day in Paradise 13k run with Ian, Gemma, Warren and Keith this morning. A lovely group of runners! We enjoyed the chat, the route and the views along the way. The morning mist looked gorgeous over the sea. Warren and Gemma from London are keen runners. Warren is training for the London 2 Brighton 100k Challenge next month. Wow! And Gemma is just getting back into running after a hip injury but looked great today. She has completed the London Marathon four times and will be competing again in no time, we're sure. Keith from our beloved Ivanhoe Runners Club did a grand job despite having forgotten his running gear and eaten dodgy oysters the night before! What a star! And Ian is steadily improving in pace and stamina. We'll have to watch out in July as he might be sprinting ahead of us by then! Well done, guys! P.S. Say 'cheese'!
We had a great run this morning with Katie and Chris. The King's Castle 19k route was Katie's longest run to date and she was amazing and didn't stop whilst going up the relentless hill from the cove. What a girl! Her first half marathon in Plymouth next week will be a piece of cake! ;)Speedy Chris has kept up his London Marathon training whilst out here on holiday and we reckon he'll smash it and do brilliantly too. Both Katie and Chris will be running on the same day, Sunday 23rd, so best of luck to both of you! But more than anything, enjoy the experience! Well done! Great running!
