Lurking no more!
I have found my comfortable jogging speed is between 9-10km/h, I do tend to vary a little bit depending what songs comes on.
I wanted to try and keep running for 40 mins tonight, did 40mins 57 secs and clocked 5.74 miles.
My dad seems to think that my jogging speed should be 12km/h+ but not sure if I could maintain that for long distances.
Think I better have a rest day tomorrow as dont want to overdo it, which I probably already have done.
Hope you get kids to bed soon, mine are pretty good and only disturb me if they have to, although my son peeped his head through the door tonight to ask me how far I had ran, got a fright and nearly fell off !
Did 4.3 miles in my lunch hour today along the sea wall and around the big lake! in the rain. (not at your speed though John - wow!)
Great South is looming so have to do a long run this weekend (no more lazy mornings in bed for me on sundays!)
Just back from prezzo (oops) so not only stinking of garlic but nursing a 'carb baby' also!!
Where's Booey and Mal gone? Are the boys going to take over!!!!???
Right you lot have got me wondering if the distance is actually in kilometres, the manual does say miles but now Im concerned, have e-mailed the guy that installed it for me , anxious wait now ha ha.
Legs feel very stiff now.
The more I think about it Im pretty sure its going to be kilometres which is a bit gutting but much more realistic, thought things seemed a little to easy too soon. Just need to crack on now, 3.56 miles in 40 mins if thats the case, seems slow but something to work on. I feel really quite embarrassed now . Will wait and see but im pretty sure.
Sounds like you are having fun and clocking up the miles.
I'm not up to much other than feeling rough as... Went to be at 6:30 last night then woke up at 10 with a killer migraine Head has gone from feeling like being caved in to tryin to explode, nose is a tap and someone has shoved glass down my throat. Prob too much info, but I feel so bad. Can't remember last time cold made me hide in bed.
More hot lemon and back to bed for me. Someone have a run for me please
John - don't worry - regardless of what times you're clocking up - you're clocking up miles which is all that really matters! You made me chuckle when you said about your little un asking you how it was going and you almost coming off. Its like a comedy sketch. You should set up a hidden cam *just in case*
Margrit - good to hear you back again - that mileage is pretty good - i'll be doing 11.5 on sunday so will think of you! Keep us posted with your mileage and how its all going!
Tripes - (still loving the name) - toilet incident made me chuckle. I share your pain - I always seem to have these situations too.....
Maam - you know there's no nutritional goodness in glass so you'll have to stop chewing on it. I did a run for you this lunchtime. Past loads of people (men) I work with so a bit embarrassing.... hope you feel better soon tho x
Silver - well done on the timings on the tready. You say break neck speed - I think I probably would die at that speed!
Booey - hope the weathers good in fuerteventura
Mal - hope the hubby / studying / kids / job are ok! no wonder you're not on here too often xx (we miss you tho!)
A case of the Paula's. As it was early in the morning it was fairly quiet and I eventually made it to one of those pod loo things(first one I went to near Place De L'Alma was out of order) It was touch and go though. Then the bloody flush wouldn't work and I had to come out and attempt to explain this to the people waiting I certainly picked up my pace at this point!
When is the Oxford HM?
Just looked Silver. This Sunday. If you are feeling good from the tready runs go but treat it like a training run. Set off really slowly(10 min mile?) and see how you feel.
Silver - go for it, I'm sure that with all the work on the tready you'll do just fine. Just take it easy as Tripes says and plod start to finish, don't go for the breakneck speed
Tripes - sounds like a good plan re-doing the 10k, will be good to see how you've got on. I think you'll surprise yourself when you do it
Good luck to you both
I'm off work today as not feeling 100%, but feeling bit better than I did n Em I've stopped eating the glass, forgot to take into account the nutritional side of it.
Well I've given in today and been to the Dr's to be told that I have a sinus and chest infection. No wonder I feel like rubbish! Yet more time off work Really need to get a job closer to home.
