What's holding you back?

I used to detest running but I rather enjoyed it so hopefully on the wet days I can run now instead of doing nothing.
May even do the great south run this year

At the moment, all my (sporty/fitness) time seems to be taken up with cycling, even if the weather is wet I am lucky enough to have an electronic turbo with many features which make the workouts great fun and rewarding too.

Who knows, I might just try to squeeze a run in some time over the next few weeks and see where it leads.................... Exclamation

Monday 20th
07:00 - 15:00
Bike


Tuesday 21st
08:00 - 16:00
Bike
Ackworth in the evening
One big group (40+)
We all headed out in same direction, but with different distances (4, 5, 6 miles) - 4 for me, no point in pushing too much

We all went from the Club-house, up Barnsley Road, to the 'Beverley Arms' round about (where A638/A628 cross), turning right along A638 Wakefield Road, towards Nostell Priory


I was last off, talking to Gail, one of the members who'd rode up on her bike, & was on her way home from work

I had some catching up to do, but managed to work my way through the 4 mile bunch, after a steady start, who were last off, catch the 5's, & get through them
I caught, passed 3 of the 5 '6 milers', before I stopped to turn round at the 'Spread Eagle'
(mapping has just shown it at 2.37 miles)
On the return, I went a bit faster, but not much, passing the last of the outwards group when they had about 3/4 mile to the Eagle (see NB)
A brief 'relax' off Brackenhill Common, saw a short ascent into Ackworth

I kept expecting a couple of the faster ones, to pick the pace up on the way back, but no, no-one was in site, even as I got into the car
Time for the return (2.37) was 17:26, granted not fast, I have run the self same almost 2 minutes faster, but that was when I was fitter & a stone lighter

Felt better (psychologically, if nothing else, for it!!)


Wednesday 22nd
08:00 - 16:00
XC both ways
Steadily!



Thursday 23rd

Day-Off.... but worked 14:00 - 22:00
Bike



Friday 24th

Day-Off Very Happy
Bike


Saturday 25th

13:00 - 22:00
Wakefield ParkRun in the morning
Dropped off/picked up by Joanne



Sunday 26th

06:00 - 14:00
Slept in...... by my standards
Joanne woke me up at 04:50, so no ride/run option
Had to drive, was still there before 05:20 (as I said, late!!)

Very busy day, bust still needed eyelids pinning open
Got home, changed, washed 'blue' & CGR, as seen here; http://www.mtbe.co.uk/post471658.html?highlight=#471658

Now trying to stay awake, so I can watch 'Marvels Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D' at 21:00


Mileage For Week =
18





NB; Please note, I have as much admiration, & time, for the girls & boys who are in that group, as I do for our 'sub 17' ParkRunners (who are equally capable of, & in one case, have won Marathons by almost 20 minutes!)
It's hard work for anyone out there,
