feeling sick now!
Lisa,well done on your PB
Jonny,give it chance to heal,probably just natures way of ensuring you now rest up
SS,Great pace,the splits are very consistant
Toby,great family run
15 miles for me today,felt fine though beginning to get tired at end.Took 2 hrs52 mins so I dont know if a 5 hr marathon is really on but hopefully a pb is(last marathon 5hrs28mins)HM at Silverstone next Sunday,wont be going for a HM pb there,just using it as a training run but no doubt will end up racing it a bit
Yesterdays park run splits 10.09 10.07 and 9.51 so pleased with that
Toby dont laugh...but dont tell snow maiden how she wont be able to walk down the stairs after the marathon eh but good on them both eh poohbear and snow maiden they both signed up last year and they are taking it seriously and they are both gonna be so proud of themselves on the finish line as will you be too .....im sooooo hoping to be able to go down for the weekend...
Dee - I too wear my compression clothes in bed proper passion killers.
I'm guessing pooh bear & snow maiden are Toby's family or I may well have missed something.
Susie - Nice park run and good training run today, don't forget time is not important on the training ground.
Sal - Nice parkrun from you as well and sounds like it was a good night out.
LIsa - Great P.B especially on an hilly track.
Jonny - Rest up & have a read of injury prevention, most of us have been there - too much too soon and training too fast are you in proper shoes? I can't say how important it is too slow down to start with.
Pictures was with the kids Wreck it Ralph O.K but not great, today an early & easy 6 miles then went into Oxford. Can't run Monday & Tuesday because of School appointments.
Have a good week all
Toby how fabulous to be able to share your running with your family - nice running btw.
Jonny you may have done what I have been guilty of in the past too much too soon at too fast a pace. I hope that this niggle passes quickly and you are back out there soon.
Susie well done on your 15 miler and Parkrun, enjoy your Hm next Sunday are you having a taper week this week?
Speediersal you done good after the previous nights excesses.
I have decided to not run the Brighton Marathon as I just don't feel ready despite the training going to plan. I have made the decision to run a couple of HM's and 10k'sthis year and focus on building my endurance and improving my speed (consistently). I would like to run a 4Xsomething 10k and a 1hr 4X something HM. To date my last 10k in November was 50.09, and I have booked to run the Paddock Wood HM in April so am hoping that I can get to 1hr 50 mins which was my plan last week at Brighton. I ran a slower 12 miles today at @ 9.40 and kept my HR below 150bpm.
I will run my first marathon next Spring, hopefully in about 3hr 45 which is a GFA for VLM I have said it out loud now
Happy running all
Poohbear is the wife and Snowmaidens my daughter the daughter singed up first and unknown to me while i was off doing some thing the wife decided that she didn't want my daughter to have to run it alone so signed up as well came as a compleat shock
Lisa sorry to hear you won't be at Brighton but if you don't feel ready always best to be on the safe side your doing what i did by running a few 10ks and H/M first before committing to my first full marathon
8 miles done today run took 1:13:18 with and Avg pace of 8:56 m/m
had to order a new pair of running shoes as the old ones are now Waring badly were i come down on the outside edge of my heel ordered them from the start fitness web site and with another pair of running tights as i let Snowmaiden have one of mine with the discount code the two items came to less than i paid for my current running shoes from the running shop
Good evening All,
Jonny - At the very least do a wet foot test, to see if you have high arches etc - then have a look at start fitness or sportshoes - they have last years shoes for half price. Swimming will be good.
Lisa - I apologise I thought your 10K PB is 47 mins, Its best to train at current times rather than future times so the paces I give you would be a bit optimistic. Easy pace 10:10, Top aerobic = 8:46, Park run (tempo) = 8:12 (I'm sure you will be doing that quicker), very wise to give up the marathon it is not the holy grail!!!!!!!
No running tonight
CW thats ok - in my HM last week I ran the first 10k in 47 mins hence another reason why I found the last 3 miles tough, so if I did a 10k time trial tomorrow I would expect a similarish time of around 47-48 mins. I don't think that I can run 10:10 for my easy pace I would find it very difficult to maintain, however 9:40 I can do without it feeling too unnatural.
Toby whats your average weekly mileage, and how are you finding it. Just reading about the amount you are running tires me out!!
Jonny make sure you stretch out your calves and achilles post run - you can do calf raises on stairs. Swimming is good.
Pilates class for me this evening - back out running tomorrow
5 mile recovery run on the treadmill yesterday just 4 today my new running shoes and running tights arrived yesterday will have to give them ago today as it's only a very short run
Jonny i went for a the same pair as i have now which Asics 1170 gels got them of the start fitness web site and even with buying a new pair of running tights it came to less than i paid in the running shop
Lisa without going out with the wife my average weekly mileage would only be between 30 and 40 miles a week normally the heaviest week i have mileage wise is about 51 but when you add in the fact I’ve been going out with the wife to keep her company the mileage is more like 50 to 60 miles a week at the moment
Jonny - Take it nice and steady - good luck with the calf.
Lisa - I do agree it is difficult to run at the suggested slow paces - but if you can hit your speedwork targets and not feeling tired - that would be O.K.
Sal - It warmed up tonight on my run, had more running kit on than a sportsshop - out comes the sun - nice but oh my did I sweat.
4 miles for me yesterday that's it now till Sundays half shoes and tights fitted ok but will need to wear the shoes about the house to break them in a bit more
*sneaks head round corner*
Hello all . It's been a loooooong time since I last posted. Just had a quick catch up with this thread and it's ace to see everyone still enjoying their running and lots of new faces
Hello again TR - How are you any major races this year?
Toby - B&T - Susiebe - Good luck with the halfs this weekend - Susiebe I know your not racing hard how about Toby and B&T?
Just under 5 tonight - slowly getting better HR slowly falling.
Take care all
Really enjoying running at the moment and doing about 2 races a month. Something magical is happening and I seem to be gaining some speed, hurrah! Managed a sub-23 parkrun, a sub-48 hilly 10k and I did my second half-mara last weekend at Blackpool where I managed a stonking sub 1hr-43. Enjoying having a go at some different races too; did my first cross country event in Jan and I'm having a go at a tough fell race next weekend.
Are you planning on Snowdon mara again this year? Or something even more difficult perhaps?!
Hope you're all well, must read back and see how you're all doing. Looks like some of you have some half maras this weekend - the very best of luck! Enjoy
