They're all too fast in the other thread!
Hope you recover quickly from that.
Have definitely decided not to do my 10k tomorrow. Just walking to town and back (about an hour) was enough to wear me out.
Chrissie, so sorry to hear you really not so well, make sure your GP gives you a thorough MOT. I will be thinking of you tomorrow
I cannot reply to all as I am just back from visit to my bro for my nephews birthday party, need to unpack and get ready for tomorrow. Have spent most of the afternoon nibbling fatty childrens party food. will find out tomorrow how good a half mara nutritional preparation that is
thanks to all for good wishes. My right knee still hurts but I am sure it will be ok once I warm up.....it usually is......
Good luck & take care of your knee.
Just back from sports physio, she was absolutely excellent! She is a runner herself so really understood! She has given me programme of icing, anti inflammatories and hamstring exercises and thinks hopefully I will be able to run, although will have to take it easy. Wish Id seen her ages ago!
Kate hope all went well for your HM!
That's wonderful. Hope the rehab goes well.
Brilliant news Louise!!
Well did a a slightly longer run yesterday then planned, ran 5 miles instead of 2-3, which meant that I struggled a bit on my LSR today - but ran 9.4 miles in 1 hour 35 mins.
According to the McMillan calculator i should be doing my LSR at around 11 - 11.40 min miles but I just can't seem to run at that pace, however I generally feel comfortable running at 10 -10.20 min miles and can talk. Maybe I read too much .
Am just coming to the end of 'Born to Run' and already fancy the idea of a trail ultra and barefoot running through mountains - this is coming from the person who 'doesn't do hills!!' I am now searching for a trail marathan next year - not that I am easily swayed or anything!!
McMillian is usually a good indicator. If you're feeling comfy at that pace maybe you're not trying hard enough in races? Careful of trail marathons because the courses can be horrible, however Bacchus (beginning of September) do have a really nice course (2 laps) and the last mile (or just over the mile) is all downhill.
oops, a couple of days away and another book is written in here
Sorry to hear about all the injuries/illness and cancelled races - chin up as all that training will stand you all in good stead for the next race
Congrats to all those able bodies souls that have continued running.
I've been feeling lathargic and under the weather this week so not been out since Tuesday and was all ready to go out this afternoon when my back 'popped' whilst packing my running gear for my week away - am gutted and in a lot of pain so not sure I'll need the running gear (irony or what?).
Hope that clears up soon.
I have worked hard this week in the gym and been swimming every day and was really going to go for it today in my 10 mile race. Its been on my mind all week and perhaps just a step too far from a 10k to 10 mile.
Woke up this morning feeling aweful like I had just crossed the finish line. My feet were throbbing my head hurt and pains in my side. So reluctantly did not go as i thought my body was trying to warn me. I hope its not the start of flu just feel yucky and disappointed in myself.
I will now concentrate on getting a pb at parkrun next week and think my energy should be channelled that way meantime. Brenda
Sounds like a wise choice. It hurts when we have to make decisions not to run a race however sometimes it for the best. Good luck with the parkrun.
Its disappointing Brenda but I htinkyou made the right choice.
Hello Andi havent seen your for ages, what a shame about your back! I really hope is just a temporary thing. Am icing my knee, doing everything the physio has told me to do in the hope of running on Sunday!
Txs for your wishes folks and am feeling better after a nice long Radox soak, half a tube of deep heat and some anti inflamatories
Brenda, upsetting as it is am sure you made the right choice and you can take out your frustration on your PR
Hi Louise - I've missed our virtual LSR's we need to start them again when we are both fit again
