They're all too fast in the other thread!
No run for me again, in pain left knee and right ankle has joined in. Have struggled with it before, too much too soon, too many hills. Very miserable with the pain, even with pain killers.
On a positve note have moved hotels and am now in some mega suite in the Angelhotel in chippenham - very posh. I dont want to go home!
Posh surroundings help ouchy knees and ankles. It's well known
Seems to be working My be the wine and painkillers though....
It all helps!
Boy you have all been busy. Wine and pain killers Louise. LOL. Yeah take it easy, a week of no running is defo better than 4-6 weeks of healing with no running.
I had my second trip to my club and met some more very nice people. Wow! what a nice bunch. I am officially a fully fledged member today having paid my joining fee. From speaking to one of the girls they do alot of socialising which sounds great. They are doing a race prequel for their annual 10 mile in sittingbourne on saturday which I will be doing. Aparently there is one mother of all hills at the start which doesn't sound too much fun. LOL. The offical race is on sunday which I will go and cheer them all on.
I wish i had joined much earlier. My new Brooks ST5 running shoes will be here tomorrow so looking forward to trying them out.
Happy running peeps.
Dave, hope you'll be back soon. Good luck with the orthotics, hopefully the cheaper modification will work.
Graham, that all sounds very promising. Don't try your new trainers on the ten-miler though!
WTK I agree, spectators cheering makes all the difference. I really want to do a mass-participation race just to see what it's like atmosphere-wise.
Club tonight. Hill reps up a 500m hill behind the prom into a headwind which really meant business. That particular road has the world's worst camber and no pavements. It was a good session but my God I'll be feeling it tomorrow. Particularly as I biked to the new gym for an hour-long pilates session then biked to work, worked, then biked home, then went to club night!
One of my long (and deadly) shifts at work tomorrow so will be doing nothing but biking there and back.
Carpathius, club night sounded like a blast all be it very hard work. I am working on some hill sprints on thursday. WOW its sounds like you have been very busy though.
Well, I have my 2nd 10k since starting running at the beginning of the year (The BUPA 10k in Edinburgh). Have continued running at least 3 times a week on a regular basis. . Really looking forward to it and really hoping that I can do a time of between 55 to 60 mins. I managed a time of 1.01 for the EMF 10k in May and that was with stopping a few times. So fingers crossed. Will update you of my time on Sunday.
trust everybody i well , firstly appologise for not being here for a while but life occasionally take over
done a parkrun this weekend and achieved another PB which i was very pleased about achieved 26.50
trainng for the GSR is going well with the exception of this week but that is work related ,but feeling very confident
how is evrybody else. HM4, Carpathiushow is the training going
Graham - surprisingly not too bad this morning, just the usual aches. Good luck on your hill sprints tomorrow.
Grant, good luck! I reckon you'll be well under 60 minutes if you don't need to stop and it was hot in May.
Tsk tsk 7th skip, what's all this about having a life?! Well done on your parkrun PB, that's seriously speedy. Glad the training's going well, and you're supposed to build easy weeks in so you're still on track
Carpathuis, good news. My legs ache this morning but I am wondering if it because of the trainers my brother loaned me. I found out this morning that they are cushioned style running shoes from asics. The ones he loaned me on saturday were not and the ones I have bought are support running shoes.
Still running tomorrow. I may just do a 6-8 mile run with some hills before I do the 10 mile on Saturday.
Well done Grant by the way. Yeah it won't be long at all.
Like your style on pain relief. It's my style also.
That hill sounds interesting.
Good luck with the training & well done on the pb. My training is debateable at the mo. I'm doing a 10k on 21 October however the rainy weather has been aggravating my previously broken shoulder.
Graham, it's surprising the difference trainers make. I wore the wrong ones a while back and hurt because of it.
HM4, I hope your shoulder's feeling better. Hopefully the weather will improve and your shoulder along with it.
I'll have to get a photo of that particular hill so that you can see what I mean - at the edges the road surface curves downwards really badly, looks like it was modelled on a half-pipe!
I was lazy and didn't cycle to work and back. Bad Carpathius.
It appears to be fine at the mo. It's this winter I'm not looking forwards to. Last winter was a learning curve which I couldn't be bothered to learn. However as I want to train thru this winter in some form I'm going to have to learn to deal with it.
Pain improved athough still present,no running but might try a little tomorro.
Last night away, enjoying fine environment and peace, back to the madhouse tomorro
Sam glad to hear you are going again to pilates, I find it amazing how small movements can make you ache the most!
7th skip fab time for parkrun, I am currently hovering at around 27mins 40 and would love to break into the 26 min mark!
Louise an enforced rest can often be really beneficial to your training, as it allows your body to recover and adjust to your new training programme. Oh and wine and analgesia is the way I do things too!!
HM4 I feel for you. My asthma always starts playing up at this time of the year with the dampness and changes in temperature, and I am really hoping that I manage to contine training through the colder months, especially as I am signed up for Brighton 10k in Nov & Brighton HM in Feb
Haven't been out since my shortened LSR on Sunday, however I have managed to source trainers on line and am hoping that they will be delivered today in time for me to try a new running club!! Email response from them was much more positive and the secretary assured me that I had run faster then him in my recent 10k and therefore shouldn't worry about running to their standard. Therefore please delivery person, deliver to me my new trainers
Carpathius, bike pilates bike workbikke run bike presumably collapsein a heap. i am impressed.
Lisa 123 good luck with new club and new trainers
Sam your new gym sounds nice
hello to others, went to a class last night, the 'abs' bit is pilates, i am not hurting so can only assume i wasn't doing it right . rest today and long run tomorrow, a 13 miler and then I think it is a bit of a taper before the race on 21st.
