feeling sick now!
Well 22 miles for me today that’s the longest run i do was feeling tired today so decided to stick close to home so did ran 2 and 3 mile loops the whole thing took 3:31:12 with a Avg pace of 9:29m/m so not to bad as i was trying to keep the pace down and to be honest wasn’t to worry about the time more about just getting around
did struggle a bit over the last couple of miles and legs are feeling it now cut back week next week then my last big mileage run the week after before the taper starts can’t wait
Dee, nice running shoes was looking at those myself as I run in minimalist shoes - vivobarefoots, although for longer distances over 10 miles I currently run in Kinvara's but feel ready to go to 0mm drop now in all my runs.
B&T - agree with Dee piccy please! Whats the filming of TV/film or is it all hush hush?
Toby what can I say - apart from you are a machine! I hope you enjoy your taper you have certainly earned it.
Susie good luck with your LSR this weekend.
Parkrun completed again for me this morning and have broken the 24 min barrier, new pb of 23.38, very pleased and can't quite believe it, as last June I ran it for the first time in 32 mins. My running resoloution for the year was to get a sub 24 min Parkrun may have to adjust it slightly now. Have a LSR planned for tomorrow, as my next race is a HM on April 7th may just do about 12 miles depending on how I feel.
Happy LSR everyone
Nice to read all the long runs going on and talk of taper, keep it up all.
B&T - Yes the runs on tired legs are of great benefit. Good stuff with the filming gets the village chatting.
Susie - I remeber your footballer nice to hear that he is pleasent and not like some of the arrogant players on big money around in todays game.
JonnyM - Have you considered recovery socks - great for after runs?
Sal - Hope the back gets better soon.
Lisa - Interesting on your minimilist running - I can only dream of having a good gait. Nice PB at parkrun keep chipping away and as Jonny says sub 23 awaits.
Nice and easy 7 miles yesterday - Pace about right with HR only about 3 -4 B/P/M higher than what I would expect so getting closer. Found a club that I like the look of and will join when I'm ready which I expect will be a couple of weeks time. Tired today got up at 5 yesterday to get my run in before going back upto home didn't get back until 2 this morning.
Happy Mothers Day to all you Mums
well 8 miles done weather doesn't seem to know what it wants it's cold and very windy but one minute the suns out the next it's over cast and snowing and then the next the suns out and it snowing Oh well keeps you on your toes
5 easy miles for me this afternoon, had to wait for all the snow and ice to melt a bit - am in Sussex which had a 6in deluge yeterday, but thankfully it has been melting slowly, although the freezing cold wind persists.
Dee its amazing how much quicker you run when its cold, its natures way of telling you to hurry up and get back inside to the warm
Sal hope that by the time you get out there on Wednesday you will be 100% better.
Fingers crossed that we have seen the last of the snow for this winter - this winter feels like it has gone on forever.
Well just 5 miles for me well i say 5 ran into town and got the wife’s name put on her running vest by the time i got back it was just over 6
We had order the name the week before so went in Saturday to have then done but the idiots had spell her name wrong so had to go down again
Dave i prefer our front room well that’s were our treadmill is at the moment prefer to get out though i have to say i have been a lot braver this year normal in winterers gone by the first excuse i could find i would have stayed in and used the treadmill
Congrats on your first haf mara Samantha! That's a great time, you should be so pleased . Although I bet you'll be having another go soon enough to shave off those pesky two minutes, right? . It's great that you're enjoying your running club, keep it up.
It's been freezing cold here for the last few days but I've still been getting out there. Took a slight comedy tumble on the ice with a club mate the other night but luckily the only things bruised were our egos .
Took part in a really tough fell race at the weekend....it was so misty you could barely see your hand in front of your face! But I managed to get to the finish in one piece (even though a bog monster tried to eat my leg and wouldn't let go!).
Going to go back to my local parkrun on Saturday to have a bash at a PB, all in prep for a nice flat 10k the week after that.
Hope you're still keeping up the running now that you're a film star, B&T?
