feeling sick now!
CW thank you so very much for all your advice
Jonny how long have you been running for? I am sure that you will increase your mileage as you progress with your running - I haven't always run this much
Crikey you have done really well with your mileage in such a short period of time
Dee - A lot of things can cause different HR, it could also be that you are getting fitter.
Jonny - Trail running just watch your footing, your pace may be a bit slower as well.
4.5 miles easy tonight.
14 miles for me today then it's out the the wife and daughter Saturday for there 18 miles it's really bitter out there to night hope it's a bit warmer tomorrow but my have to be a wimp and put an extra long sleeved top on
car went in for it's MOT just hoping it doesn't cost and arm and a leg
Lisa - well done re 7.5ml run - yep, definitely very nippy out there.
CW - good to see you're getting back to your previous pace.
Dee - I always find treadie runs easier. I can go at a faster pace and put that down to me just needing to move my legs rather than push myself along like outside. Will be interested to hear how you get on with the compression leggings.
Jonny M - the only trail run I've done was the Ridgeway 10ml race last October. I don't have any trail shoes so was lucky it was a dry day. Even though I was watching my footing I did manage to go over on my ankle but caught myself in time and didn't have any problems finishing.
Sal - hope you've thawed out after that bout of hypothermia! Well done re those intervals.
Toby - my car is 3yrs old next month so I've just booked mine in for it's first MOT - should get through okay but you never know! Well done re your 14ml run and good luck with Mrs Toby and Miss Toby and that planned 18ml run.
*waves* to everyone else
I *did* manage to get back in time for Wed's club meet. We jogged out to an industrial estate about a mile away then did intervals (5x 80mtrs; 4x 60mtrs on a slight slope with a jog recovery back down). Was very nippy to start with but I soon warmed up once we got going! A clubmate who I have 'met' via the Fetch website introduced herself - she is doing the Marathon De Sables next year. A couple of others introduced themselves as well. People seem friendlier this time around (not complaining - just pleasantly surprised).
Looking forward to running with Yvonne again tomorrow - I think we're probably doing an 8ml out & back on the old railway line.
Busy here so haven't managed to get to post,even though have good intentions!
Runs going well.Today 6 miles this pm,freezing cold but felt like I was in a nice warm bubble within a few minutes.
Bought some lovely running leggings this am from Primark £9 and the most comfortable pair Ive ever worn.The are not a close fitting lycra,more a looser trouser fit which I prefer.Worth having a look,they also had jackets,tops,bra tops.Not sure about the mens stuff.Also have ordered my new shoes,didnt see them at £50 againbut £59 with free p+p was ok.
ss,great intervals,your times are very quickly improving
mel,the naked ladies must be brave at the mo,bbrrrr its cold
jonny,welcome!You're doing really well,runnings quite addictive but in a great way
Lisa,really well done in your HM.You did really well considering you werent feeling that well.Hope you're now feeling better
Toby,hope the car passes ok
Did anyone watch 'The Brain Doctors' on weds evening?A truly inspirational programme, filmed at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford where my daughters were born.Was thinking about it while I was running today,amazing doctors and patients
hoping to get to park run in the am,then 14/15 on Sunday.
Have a great weekend all
well collected the car £307.71 not overly bad but bad enough 14 miles done was i bit of a wimp wore an extra long sleeved top and my thicker jacket
Susie yes it was a tad nippy out there this Afternoon
Mel glad to read the club runners are a lot more friendly now
Dee - Good run today - I often find that compression clothes are good after a run as well.
Toby - Dont think anyone can call you a wimp - good luck with the long runs and to all the Tobies as well.
Susiebe - Nice to hear that ther running is going well with you, you do seem to be putting the effort in, don't know the hospital that you refer to but maybe in the future.
Mel - So nice to hear that the club is going well for you.
Yvonne/Mel - Enjoy your run today.
Just over 6 done today - feeling like fitness is coming back slowly never really struggled today quite an undualiting route not like the hills I'm used to. Will leave it a couple of more weeks before joining a club and doing parkruns though.
Have a good weekend all - Off to the pictures now and then Lunch out in Witney.
Hello all...well just back from a lovely out and back run with mel i hope he isnt cursing me too much for muddy trainers we managed 7.15 miles at 11.05 min mile pace which i think for track/trail running is in my book, good, i always find you can knock a min per mile off when you revert back to road running....and im always amazed at how quick the time goes...
Ive been reading posts but not posting as my kindle for some reason isnt typing but it does for sending mails etc ..Im still off the goodies for lent day 10 i think ...went running on the treadie for 45 mins tues evening 10 min warm up followed by 3 mins fast 2 mins recovery x 5 then 10 min cool down then a 30 min run thurs then todays run so im slowly getting back in and im amazed im up to this mileage already and feeling ok ive also been doing a press up program and ive done some strengthening work..
Again i ouch that car bill toby mine is due soon and im not looking forward to it..
CW what did you see at pics? hope you enjoyed lunch
Dee i dont think i could run in tight stuff makes me feel uncomfortable putting on fresh washed jeans that struggle enough for me
Happy running everyone
Dee nice running at a nice pace well done on being out there in the cold. Agree compression tights are very comfy to run in and also lounge about in.
Mel glad to hear that the club is so much more welcoming this time round. I really need to joing a club - must get myself sorted.
Susie well done on running the intervals (shudders at the thought )
Yvonne agree with trail running always a bit slower and yes you feel the improvements much more when converting back to road running.
CW glad to hear the training is coming on.
Parkrun for me today and a new pb of 24.32 which I am pleased with especially as course is 'undulating' (1 massive hill and 1 incline that goes on forever!). Really want to get below 24 mins but may have to go to another course - nice flat one - for that!
well back from the 18 miles with the wife and daughter have to eat humble pie as we completed the run in just under 5:14:00 i have to say i thought it was going to be more like 6 to 6 and a half
