Yesterday morning we headed out for a leisurely 7 km run along the Guadalquivir River to help Dano shake off his aches and pains from Sunday’s Seville Marathon and to get some snaps.
It’s been a couple of months since we last blogged so here is a winter running round-up of activity since our last race in November, from sparkly new kit, Seville Marathon training, trail running in New Zealand and the UK, and trying our ‘legs’ at Turbo Training.
Day one in Copenhagen has been our most testing first day out of our marathon weekends to date, starting with Ro leaving her camera bag (with camera and bank cards inside) on the plane. However, there were some small silver linings as the day wore on.
Yesterday we ventured into the Surrey Hills for our first trail run which saw us 90% gushing about the scenery and 10% being lost. We both loved it and are going to make it a regular thing but it got us thinking about how we should better prepare ourselves for trail running.
Today was a rare occasion that Dano and I ran together and, in doing so, I ran an unofficial 10 km PB of 1:01. It’s got us thinking that running together once a week might not be a bad idea.
Happy Easter everyone. We hope you’ve been enjoying the long weekend as much as we’ve been. We may have found the first races to go onto our 2015 race wishlist today; three alpine events which form the 33M-Cup.
Yesterday we headed to Sandown Park Racecourse in Esher for our first visit to the Running Show.
We are back from a brilliant weekend on the Cote d’Azur, France where we ran our first 2 x 21.1 km marathon relay at the Marathon des Alpes-Maritimes.
After a few weeks off from running despite Amsterdam Half Marathon being this month, I was just getting back into regular running when this morning I kicked my toe against a wall and now have a suspected broken little toe. It is swollen, painful and I can’t put any pressure on it.
After a couple of months of talking about it, tonight we finally registered for Marathon des Alpes-Maritimes Nice-Cannes where we will be participating in our first 2 x 21.1 km marathon relay in the south of France.
