feeling sick now!
Yvonne that better than last week when i did 36 in 2 days but having said that as Alison uses a run walk it's not all running and there's usually a couple of loo breaks in there as well glad to read the run went well you don't seem to have lost any speed
As Yvonne said, it was great to be able to meet up and do a run together. Next Saturday I will drive over to Yvonne's and she can take me on one of her local routes. Yes .. Big Bertha was an option but we decided to take the slightly shorter route through some of the park. So BB can wait for another day when we are both in the mood to run a bit further.
Nice to hear that the meet up and run went well (Mel & Yvonne)
4.5 miles for me thats 3 runs this year!!!!
Back from Cornwall yesterday,got a couple of short runs in and 14 todayRun went really well though feel really tired this evening.
B+T,great news about your long run.Thats brilliant,and am really pleased no shin problems.Glad the compression socks are helping,I wore mine today as feel the benefit on colder days.I love the Forest of Dean too,I think there are some trail runs there which I'd love to do sometime.
SS,great that you had a good time away and did a couple of runs and the parkrun.Times quickly improving which is great
Toby and Dee great runningToby you're going to do really well at Brighton
I think Lisa was running the Brighton Half today,hope she enjoyed it
I need to get sorted soon with new shoes as even though I'll be getting the same shoe I need to wear them in a bit before 21st April.of course I haven't seen them for £50 again,let that be a lesson as shouldn't have left it til the next day!
I see you're talking about a meet up at a HM in the Autumn,will 99% be Swindon HM for me even though my sis has been talking about the hills involved
Children back to school in am,where did that week go?
Brighton HM completed today - here is my review.
I woke up yesterday morning full of cold, however I decided late last night to continue my plan to run the Brighton HM run today, despite being under the weather. I dosed up on Vit C, Zinc and Echinacea all day yesterday in a bid to be able to run and I just couldn't face pulling out of it at the last minute with all the training that I have done.
Left my house this morning wrapped up as it was -3 and very misty and arrived in Brighton to beautiful sunshine - obviously it was still chilly. Being cold it kept my snotty nose at bay .
First 6 miles felt quite comfortable and I was averageing about 8 min miles - I ran 10k in 47 mins, therefore knew that I had gone off far too fast. My pacing for races is really rubbish - need to work on this. Miles 6-9 I was averaging aboy 8 and 1/2 min miles was tiring at this point. Mile 10 we turned around right onto the seafront and was running into quite a head wind at this point I was shattered, probably not helped by being under weather and going off far too quickly. Mile 11 I literally though I was going to vomit , but thankfully I held it in. This was due to having a couple of swigs of Lucozade sport - I don't generally have any sugar in my diet as I eat a paleo diet and I think my body just objected to it.
Boy was I glad when I saw the sign for 900m. I resisted speeding up until I was near the 300m marker. I crossed the line in 1 hour 52 mins and 1 second. Really pleased with the time especially as I am not well. Feel like death warmed up now and again full of cold etc. Probably not the most sensible idea to run with a cold, but glad that I have now run my first HM. Now work starts to get sub 1hr 45 mins !!
Will have a look back at all the posts that I have missed over the last few days.
Nice racing and report Lisa, well done on toughing it out. Interesting to see your times for 10K v's half marathon.
Nice reps Sal - Good that the last was the quickest.
Susie - Nice running from you.
I see Toby's not checked in today is he still running?
Will check up on the dates soon and work something out? Swindon's not far away though.
Doing some online shopping like Susiebe - after some shoes and compression socks, going to have a look at the Saucony's with the 8mm heal - toe anyone tried them? If i remeber correctly Mel
Take care all - might go for a run tomorrow.
Some great running going on over the weekend i have 10 to do today that’s after my weight watcher meeting hoping I’ve lost the last 3lbs
Lisa well done you that’s a great time considering you were under the weather I’m a bit jealous to be honest as that’s not far off my PB and i was well
Well I have now managed to read back on all the posts that I missed.
Yvonne in my book walking definately counts towards mileage. Good to see that you and Mel met up for a run - it must be nice having a run with someone rather then heading out on your own all the time.
Speediersal really well done in the interval training - I have avoided speed training like the plague, but I have decided that although they are the devils work I have start doing them as part of my training to improve on my times aarrgghh!! Any tips?
Dee, I was hoping for a sub 2hr, with a "I'd be over the moon" with a time nearer 1hr 50. Its amazing what adrenaline will do on the day of your HM, just don't do what I did and go off to fast, when is your HM?
B&T I salute your mileage thats very impressive and a distance I am yet to cover.
Cotswold Wolf, enjoy your run today.
Toby I am pretty sure with the amount of mileage that you are doing you would have no trouble beating your HM pb. Do you have times that you are currently working towards or are you just concentrating on running BM in less then 4hrs?
Lisa mainly working towards a sub 4 at Brighton but we have H/M coming up in 2 weeks and would love to go sub 1:50:00 if possible but will have to see as I've never run this one before i usually run Bath and that's were i seem to set all my best times but decided because of the entry fee being £41 i give it a miss this year
Dee - Chippenham doesn't have any long, steep hills (or I wouldn't be doing it!)
Easy 4 miles this morning. Don't know if its the cold weather, or the marathon training, but I do seem to be running faster with my HR still at / below 70%. Magic Entered my Half marathon last night after dithering for ages about it. Family are primed to come with me and go on the cycle paths whilst I run. Still not sure what sort of pace I should aim for - marathon pace? Bit faster?? Full on trying to shave a bit more off last year's PB???!!!!
well went to W/W done another 3lbs 10st 7lbs making a grand loss of 3st since i joined back last October so this now puts me were i wanted to be so i can start the maintenances whole heartedly instead of the half heart effort last time
Went out for run afterwards 10 miles done in 1:31:15 giving me an Avg pace of 8:59 m/m
