feeling sick now!
Well i was going to do my run on the treadmill yesterday but in the end decided i could get it done quicker if i went out for a run as i don’t tend to walk when I’m outside running on my own unlike the treadmill were i have a tendency to do a run walk and it was a nice day
B&T try this link Brighton
Cool - thanks Toby. Can't seem to print it though - would be much easier to refer back to if I could print it out (obsessive taper behaviour kicking in already!) No mail with my number though
Just realised, there has been way too much running talk, and way too little CAKE on here lately! So here I am, to rectify that. made malteser cake for my son for after his birthday treat at Go Ape on Saturday with 2 of his friends. It was great, but we took so long there wasn't time to come back to have cake afterwards.
Last night he helped me make chocolate brwnies so he could take some in for his other friends in school, and I've just finished making a chocolate sponge with chocolate buttercream for his birthday tea tonight. Can you tell he likes chocolate????? Anyway - plenty here - help yourselves
B&T it may be worth just emailing the Brighton Marathon team ans finding out about your number if that's the second email I've had and you haven't can't do any harm
Dee - Fantastic to get the whole amount of money.
B&T - On her tablet again. Cake hmmmmmm.
Sal - Hadds approach is aimed for high mileage runners.
Lisa - hows the low HR runs going? Are you going to get upto 50miles per week before doing a time trial?
6.5 miles easy tonight.
B&T ...AAARRRGGGHHH dont talk cake.....ive still got until easter sunday until i can eat cake chocolate and crisps...gave them up for lent.....and maltesers are my fave and youve combined it with cake!!!!!!....
Can you save me some until then please..
Well me and the O/H go to Leicester although the trip up was pretty hairy at times didn't think we were going to get out for a run at all, any way we did all was going well up to 10 miles when daughters ankle started playing up and the biting head wind we'd been running into finally took it's toll on my hands even through 2 pairs gloves
and the O/H feet went numb so we cut the run short the daughter was very disapointed she had'nt manged to do the whole 20 but as we reminded her, 1 we had already said we'd keep going until we did the 20 miles or got too cold to carry on and 2 and more importantly with just 3 weeks now till brighton it was'nt worth carring on and risking doing serious damage to her ankle
Went out for a 13.5 miler today and managed to keep my HR around 140bpm which is on target for 70-72% of max hr so very pleased, this involved slowing down an awful lot so was averaging 10.30 min/miles.
CW - as I have a HM 2 weeks today I have done a tempo run this week and will do another one next week at race pace just to make sure I can still run at 8.20 min miles for a few miles . After that I will try and resist tempo runs for a few weeks to allow Hadd training to kick in. I also need to up my mileage at the moment I run about 30 - 35 mpw, so need to increase this slowly over the next few weeks to 55 miles per week - arrgghh scary stuff! I have a 15 mile race booked for July so will focus my Hadd training towards that. I also have a 10k at the end of May so will be interesting to see if my time for that will improve just by 'Hadding'.
Dee really good news about the sponsership, you can just focus on running now.
B&T stop all this talk of cake its making me hungry!
Susie huge well done on your 20 miler especially as weather is so awful at the moment - remind me which season we are in again!!
Toby it sounds like you made the right decision cutting the run a bit short, your daughter really needs to stay injury free so close the big day.
Firstly well done on everyone getting their training in this weather.
Susiebe - Yes Right by Shipton. Very good 20 miler.
Lisa - Will be interested in your Hadd training. Can't blame you for doing some tempo runs near your HM Seems like your long run went well by using HR.
Dee - Well done on Chippenham entry.
Toby - Must be start of taper for you.
No races planned so I'm not running in this weather. Lightweight yes
CW taper starts this week to a point with just 14 on Friday then it drops right off next week
I'm back in the UK (got home on Friday). I just wanted to pop by and say hello. I will catch up properly over the next few days and see what everyone has been up to while I've been away. Northern Lights cruise was great apart from catching the stomach bug that was doing the rounds of the ship
I went out for a run yesterday - the 2 week break (apart from a 2ml treadie run on ship) don't seem to have had any adverse effect as I was able to do just over 6mls with only one (2 min) walk break.
And I MUST get some race entries sorted before too much longer ..
