feeling sick now!
Lisa 123 welcome to the thread
well got out and did 8 miles yesterday took me 1:17:28 so again pleased with that as i wasn't feeling one hundred % having said that not feeling a lot better to day so my just do a couple of recovery runs on the treadmill and then see how i feel Friday before attempting the 20
Thanks for the welcome everyone.
Sam as mentioned on other thread - glad you enjoyed your club run and no doubt you will make huge improvements.
Toby you do a fair amount of mileage is this all for Brighton Marathon or do you have other races lined up as well?
Speediersal well done on getting out there. I have found that strengthening my core has really helped with my running. Oh and I am not that speedy
Pilates class last night completed and a 5 mile run followed by pilates again this evening all done. Am either going to attend a club night tomorrow and do a speed interval session (am not a member am till trying to decide whether its right for me), or I will do a short easy run of about 3 miles - decisions decisions.
Happy running all.
well did a gentle run 5 mile run walk on the treadmill yesterday as th dreaded lurgy doesn’t seem to be abating must admit i did drag the treadmill into the living room from the garage so i was nice and warm will do the same today with the 4
Lisa at the moment the focus is on Brighton but we have incorporated a couple of races into the training as both me and my O/H are running Brighton this year we have the Longleat 10k on the 3rd of February and instated of running bath on the 3rd of March we’ve chosen to do the Llanelli H/m instead
My trainers have arrived!!! They have been tried on and walked around in...but why do new trainers feel so alien after the comfort of your old ones??....I must admit ive still got all 4 pairs of my old running trainers as i convince myself they may come in handy for a dog walk in the summer or a visit to the gym in my garage..or a little go on the cross trainer...Plus each pair has got me through my runs which to me are special
Tomorrow i have promised myself i will go out for a little run in them...i know i should of really gone out tonight but ive had to wait in for my shopping
ouch ouch that foam rollering sure does make one squeal .... but felt good after ...for those that have one how often do you put yourself through the pain? I will try and do 15 mins each evening until it loosens things up my I.t bands were very hurty
well only managed 45 minutes on the treadmill yesterday rest day today and then will have to see how i feel Friday before i deiced what to do about the 20 could always do the 13 this week and the 20 next i surpose
Yvonne glad the trainers arrived hope you get them broken in quickly
B & T must admit i to am looking forward to my rest day today
Glad its not just me, Toby! Wait & see how you feel tomorrow before deciding about your 20 - if you're still not 100% it could just be too much for your body and set you off with another lurgy (yuck!)
Contemplating 10 miles tomorrow to do the run I missed last week. Looks like its going to be a cold one - but I have my lovely new running jacket bought for me for Christmas by the long suffering Mr B&T. Only worn it once to try it out, then it was too mild to wear it!
Random thought of the day
i have to say i am glad i discovered the delights that are running tights i used to go out in a thick-is pair of jogging bottoms which was alright until it rain then they got very heavy but running tights keep your legs so nice and warm and do seem to be remarkable water proof considering how thin they are they’ve been a revelation
my collation has gone from 1 lonely pair with a yellow stripes on them to 2 pairs with yellow stripes and 2 with blue stripes to now i had a yellow jacket but no blue and O/H always seem to be able to colure coordinate herself if she was wearing her red pair she wore her red jacket if she wore her yellow pair she wore her yellow jacket
So being the sad person i am i dropped a load of hints before Christmas that i needed a Blue running jacket to go with my blue pairs well i say dropped it was more like beat her over the head with a bit of 4 by 2 bit of wood kind of hinting which paid off as she must have got fed up with me going on about it and bought me a lovely blue jacket
have deiced to rest to day and do the run tomorrow the fact i only just got up has also played part in that decision as it would take me 3 hrs + to complete the run feeling fit and and well so probably more like 4 today and so by the time i got out the door and got back it would be to late as we have to go out tonight
I see its a week since I last posted - been busy with work again
Trying to catch up ..
Toby - training going well I see - well done. I have 'Ron Hill' tracksters I wear this time of year. They are very snug and probably similar to the running tights but have handy zip-up pockets. Glad your subtle (and not so subtle) hints worked and you got your new kit.
Sal - I'm sure parkrun times will improve as you get back into things. Well done re core training too. I see you want photos of men in tights. Okay - but do we get photos of ladies in stockings in return?
Yvonne - happy nooo Kindle Fire (Mrs Wm treated herself to an ipad so I borrow that). My work laptop has wifi .. I have been known to do my early (6am) checks from the comfort of my bed! I have a collection of old trainers used for gardening/decorating. I use my foam roller as and when I need to.
Dee - well done re treadie run and glad hamstring was ok and nooo trainers didn't cause problems.
B&T - sorry to hear planned 10ml LSR didn't happen but pleased to see you managed shorter run (with outriders) .. and quieter run more recently. I didn't make it to the running club (see below). Happy nooo Nexus I see. Ummm .. old trainers used for swearing out and about? Do you stand on pavements then shouting at passers-by?
Lisa - welcome to the thread *waves* Can only dream of running the sorts of times you mention for 5k/10k - SpeedierSal used to be SlowSal - maybe you'll have to change to SpeedyLisa
Samantha - glad to hear you enjoyed new running club.
Last Sunday's session with my friend CT to help her with Garmin was time well spent. It took a few hours but she's now able to set up workouts/courses and hadn't realised how much it does. We spent so long on the Garmin the sauna had to be cancelled - now there's dedication for you!
I missed the running club on Mon/Wed this week thanks to traffic problems around Bristol. But I have been getting out regularly on my own (distances between 3-7mls) and planning to go out tomorrow for another 7ml run.
BTW - am still waiting for my 'Gore' goodies from Fetch due to xmas/new year hols. Only just been asked (and told them) what type of shorts i wanted.
Yvonne new trainers, I love new trainers, type and style info please and how was your first run in them . Oh and I agree about foam rolling. I too make lots of noises enough to embarrass my kids!!
Black and Tabby how did your 10miler go, did you manage to brave the weather? Its getting mighty cold out there, personally I just wish Spring would now hurry up can't be doing with snow and cold spells.
Toby good luck on your very LSR run tomorrow, 20 miles seems an awfully long way, especially as I currently only run about 10-12 miles for my LSR.
Speediersal well done on getting out there and clocking up your mileage.
WtnMel, its awful when work gets in the way. If you are anything like me I become very moody if I cant get out and run.
Hope I haven't missed anyone.
Me, well I opted for an easy 3 miler rather then speed session as was feeling very tired after a long day at work. I had an enforced rest day yesterday as still feeling exhausted - am trying to listen to my body more this year. Hoping to do my local Parkrun tomorrow (weather dependent) and LSR of 10 miles on Sunday.
Happy running everyone
Happy with the way my training has been going.Ran 7 miles yesterday so will just do 3 today.Having to switch runs around to allow for my two night shifts per week but no problem.Was thinking of doing my local park run today but its still cancelled as ground water-logged(has been since mid-nov)and not wanting to travel to the rather muddy one I did a few weeks ago though have plans to go back as i have a rather slow time to beat there
B+T,glad its going well for you too.Was going to ask are there any hills at VLM?I dont think London is particually hilly but there again no where is completely flat!
Welcome Lisa and SamanthaWill try and catch up with what you're doing
SS,glad the running is going well and you're getting back into itSnow is forecast here on Monday,children excited but me less so!
Toby,good luck on your run today.No problem with men wearing tights
